Discover our Executive Royal Oscar Niemeyer...

 

Oscar Niemeyer is honored with an Executive Royal Room, with a bathtub overlooking the Douro River and the possibility of a double or twin bed.

 

The room refers to the architect's minimalist style, with simple decor. Much of the bedroom design, such as the shades and shape of the windows and the headboard, were based on one of his famous works: Mondadori publishing headquarters in Italy.
