Casa da Companhia

IHG Hotels & Resorts announces the first Vignette Collection hotel in Europe as Casa da Companhia opens in the centre of Porto, which will be followed by a second European opening in Germany in 2026.

Situated in the heart of Porto, Casa da Companhia embraces the cultural vibe of one of Portugal’s most important cities, showcasing the unique ambience of picturesque Clérigos district.

It is located near São Bento Station, and on the doorstep of the main city attractions, such as the medieval architecture of the city’s buildings, the plentiful gardens or the cosmopolitan port area filled with cafes, bars and eateries.

The hotel features 40 rooms including three suites, a luxurious spa featuring treatments from Holiclinica, a fitness suite, heated indoor and outdoor pools and an outdoor terrace.

Regarding the F&B offer, Casa da Companhia features a restaurant and bar located on Flower Street. The Executive Chef has created an authentic Mediterranean gastronomic experience through a menu with nuances of spices from the routes of India, through a range of dishes based on international trends, with a focus on local produce from the Porto coast.

Vignette Collection hotels infuse unexpected moments into the stay experience, known as “Memorable Rituals”. As the former headquarters of Real Companhia Velha, the famous Port company, guests can experience the tradition of “fire opening” a bottle of Port, while enjoying a glass paired with a chocolate truffle, every Wednesday and Saturday.

Furthermore, Casa da Companhia is proud to partner with Escola de Hotelaria e Turismo do Porto to support the next generation who wish to pursue careers in hospitality, through mentoring and internships at the hotel.

We are excited to bring Vignette Collection to Europe, this debut opening is the first of many planned in the region and marks the fifth globally, since the brand was launched a year ago. The opening of Casa da Companhia speaks to our focus on delivering one-of-a-kind hotels and memorable experiences alongside a commitment to more responsible travel. It is another exciting addition to the over 6,000 properties within IHG Hotels & Resorts and accessible by the reimagined IHG One Rewards loyalty programme. We look forward to creating lasting experiences and unexpected connections at Casa da Companhia for our guests.

Casa da Companhia is Vignette Collection’s fifth hotel to open. The brand has 12 hotels in the pipeline, and more than 100 properties globally are anticipated to join over the next 10 years.
