Inspired by art and the taste for beauty, The Artist Porto Hotel & Bistro offers a modern and relaxed environment, where each detail brings us to a creative and original atmosphere, charged with emotions, hereby inspiring and helping to grow (personally and professionally) the students of the Porto School of Hotel Management and Tourism who train here. The traditional experience of doing gives way to the experimentalism of who does, who serves and who hosts, thus translated into an enduring relationship and a surprising experience, at what is regarded as the centre of Arts of the city of Porto: •The Art of Welcoming. Hospitality is at the heart of hotel management and is paramount for a hotel-school. •The Art of Cooking. Gastronomy is a source of enthusiasm and interest, and is the purpose of visiting The Artist.
