Top choice aparthotel in Ribeira
Image by Booking.com

Down by the Rio Douro and right in the thick of the action, Porto River is a class act. The owners have waved a magic wand over this old stone warehouse to transform it into a hotel of understated luxury. The bustle outside fades in bright, minimalist Scandi-style apartments done out in natural fabrics and with attention-grabbing details.
