A Guest House in Porto for the Creative Set

Issue 44 · Miss Havisham · November 1, 2012

Miss'Opo Guest House, located in the center of Porto, Portugal, likes to think of itself as a home; a happy home where creativity and an interactive community are encouraged through design.

With flexibility in mind, Miss’Opo's multifunction rooms include a collection of studio guest rooms upstairs, which have played host to many a cultural activity from exhibitions to performances. Just a hunch, but we’re guessing that the café/bar, with its warm mix of midcentury industrial chic pieces, is the place to be when you next visit to Porto. For more information, see Miss'Opo.
