Eurostars Hotels strengthens its presence in Portugal with the recent opening of the 4* Eurostars Heroismo, the third establishment of the brand in the city of Porto, where it already manages the 4* Eurostars Oporto and the 4* Eurostars Das Artes.
With the opening of the Portuguese hotel, the chain enhances its portfolio in 2016 with three new hotels, following the two recent additions in Palermo (4* Eurostars Centrale Palace) and Zaragoza (4* Eurostars Boston) and reaches 82 establishments.
The 4* Eurostars Heroismo is a newly built establishment with 153 rooms, including 12 suites, themed with pictures of some of the most emblematic and iconic areas of the city. It is located a few minutes from Porto’s historic and commercial centre. The hotel is also equipped with 7 divisible meeting rooms of up to 250 m2 to host all kinds of events and business meetings. The hotel’s facilities also include a gym, a café, a naturally lit business centre and a garden area.
According to the President of the Grupo Hotusa, Amancio López Seijas “Portugal, and Oporto in particular, has been a prominent destination in our company’s expansion plans for its appeal to leisure clients and culture vultures, as well as those visiting for business”. López states that “we currently have two projects underway in Portugal, fundamentally in Lisbon, and we are open to analysing other operations”.
Out of these projects underway, of particular note is a five-star museum hotel with 89 rooms that will occupy the historic Palácio dos Condes de Coculim in Lisbon, which is in its final stages of restoration. It is located in Campo das Cebolas on the street Cais de Santarem, and will be part of the Eurostars Hotels chain. The company is also working on a 4-star hotel and 101 rooms in Cascais, which will be part of the Exe Hotels chain.
After this latest addition, the Grupo Hotusa currently manages 8 establishments in Portugal, 6 of them under Eurostars Hotels and the other two under the Exe Hotels logo: The 5* Eurostars Das Letras and the 4* Exe Lisboa Parque (Lisbon); 4* Eurostars Rio Douro Hotel And Spa (Castelo de Paiva), 4* Eurostars Oasis Plaza (Figueira da Foz), 4* Eurostars Das Artes, 4* Eurostars Oporto, 4* Eurostars Heroismo and 4* Exe Penafiel Park Hotel & Spa (PortoPenafiel).
