Situated in the historical area of Porto city, Portugal, 1872 River House is one of the hotels units of reference for the historical center, known as being a valuable “piece of history”. The area has been appreciated by UNESCO as having a remarkable cultural value accumulated in over 2000 years of existence. After this building has survived to water and a fire that nearly destroyed it, the building was brought back to life by the architect Adriana Floret and her team. The rehabilitation operation was completed so the building will begin a new phase of its life under the name of 1872- River House, a small hotel with 8 rooms on the ashore of Douro river.

Each room tells a story, the historical charge being obvious. The rooms also have different characteristics and are decorated differently. Each piece of furniture has been reconsidered and restored in order to adapt harmoniously to the space that it occupies. The terrace with views towards the river seems a continuation of the rooms, being the perfect place to dine. 1872 River House is a project where the traditional Portuguese architecture blends with the contemporary one, where the rustic and modern in highlight mutually ensuring the comfort and necessary atmosphere of a successful holiday.
