Although Porto’s metro system connects with Porto City Centre, sometimes it’s just easier to book an airport hotel—especially if you’re departing early or arriving late. There are several hotels near Porto Airport and many of these are within walking distance of the terminal, so there’s no need for an airport shuttle or taxi (although you can easily get one if you need one). This article focuses on those that are closest to the airport as that’s typically the most important thing when you are catching a flight early in the morning or arriving late at night.
Note: Porto Airport (full name: Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport) is in Maia, which is part of the Porto Metropolitan Area. If you’re looking at a hotel and see Maia instead of Porto in the address, don’t worry: it’s still part of Porto and not somewhere else in Portugal.
