Guillaume Apollinaire


{August 25, 1880 (Rome, Italy) – November 9, 1918 (Paris, France)}


Discover our Executive Superior Guillaume Apollinaire:

A room in honor of the writer of the avant-garde theories and the inspiration of many avant-garde artists, could not be missing from our Torel Avantgarde, based in the center of Porto.

Our boutique hotel represents this poet in one of its rooms with a balcony, an Executive Superior, that shocks those who enter, due to the use of black in contrast with the wood.


This contrast represents the two opposite sides of the avant-garde, intensity on the one hand and lightness on the other.

Guillaume Apollinaire is shown in a portrait, with his accomplices and friends.  


  • 25 m2;
  • Double bed;
  • Balcony;
  • Occupancy: up to two people;
  • Offer of Nespresso coffee and water throughout the stay.


See our other rooms in the Executive Superior category: Simone de Beauvoir, Filippo Marinetti, Maya Deren, Mary Quant.
