Bloom House Hotel Location
If you’re looking for where to stay in Porto, I highly recommend you book at the Bloom House by Sweet Porto. The guest house is located on Santa Catarina Street, which is one of the main roads and one of the best places to stay in Porto.
Another thing to note about Bloom House is it’s within walking distance to shopping, the farmer’s market, tourist attractions, cafes, and restaurants.
Also, less than a 5-minute walk away is the Bolhão Metro Station. You can easily take the metro from the airport and exit Bolhão to arrive at Bloom House. However, Bloom House offers taxi services to get you from and to the airport upon request.
Arriving/Leaving Bloom House
Between 8:00 am to 11:30 pm, you can find a skilled team prepared to help you and at your service. When traveling abroad, especially if you’re not very familiar with the language, staying in a place with great “guest support” is highly valuable. Besides Portugese, staff can speak English, Spanish, and French.
Check-in is from 3 pm-11:30 pm and check-out is at 11 am. You can choose a late check-in or check-out, subject to availability and within the hotel’s policies.
Bloom House Hotel Amenities
All apartments share the same amenities, and once you read about them you’ll understand why this is one of the best places in Porto.
What I enjoyed the most at Bloom House was the breakfast! It’s why it topped my list for where to stay in Porto. You can request breakfast services served directly to your apartment for 11€. You can select your preferred time between 8:00 am and 10:30. Your basket comes with fresh-cut fruit, a variety of fresh breads, yogurt with granola, milk, coffee, orange juice, cheese, and meat.
After all the walking and touring, you can escape to the garden. The Bloom House garden is surrounded by 20 apartments which is a quiet spot to escape the city after your long day.
Also, housekeeping services are available if you stay longer than 7 days. You will find a magnet on your room wall. Just place the magnet on your room number outside and return to a clean room.
Bloom House Rooms
The Bloom House features 5 different apartments. You can view the different layouts and select your preference here. However, I highly recommended booking a city view. People-watching from the balcony makes Bloom House one of the most unique places where to stay in Porto.
Every apartment comes fully equipped with a kitchenette that is fully stocked with all your utensils, dishes, glasses, and pots and pans. There is also a microwave, refrigerator, and electric stovetop.
Bloom House apartments also have a spacious living room that comes with cable TV.
Furthermore, Bloom House apartments have free wi-fi, air conditioning, heating, a large closet, and extra bed linen.
What makes Bloom House one of the unique places to stay in Porto is the corkboard wall! Inside each apartment, you can find a wall with some of the top places to eat and attractions to see in Porto recommended by staff!
