Porto is a magic, dirty old town. We loved visiting and we've been lucky to discover Pensao Favorita, a delightful experience we didn't expect. The simple, basic but elegant building is located in a beautiful and strategic neighborhood, close to the Baixa and the Ribeira but quiet and full off nice spots for shopping and dining. Maria welcomed us and... More

We (2 girlfriends and I) stayed at Pensao Favorita for a night. Since we had just a single day in Porto, we arrived before our room was ready. But Emma, the hostess made us feel so welcome, as if we were at a friend's house more than a hotel. She took the time out to make us feel welcome, gave... More

This hotel has it all. The staff are friendly and helpful, our garden room was a lovely quiet haven, the breakfasts were excellent. Highly recommended if you also don't like staying in one of the chainsaws prefer a more alternative but comfortable stay. Our only negative was a mediocre meal at the hotel restaurant, but there are many great places... More

My family and I stayed at Pensao Favorita for 2 nights in July 2014. It is located in the centre of town not too far from the main attractions. It is a small B&B with rustic décor and character, which makes for a nice change from the big chain hotels. The Good: - Friendly & helpful staff - Relaxing Garden... More

One of the best places I've ever stayed. Well placed near the centre of the beautiful old city of Porto, it's an old house in a terrace that's been 'done up' beautifully with added rooms in the garden at the back, which is where we stayed. Very clean, and the staff were all very helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good... More

I hardly ever stay in a hotel or pensão in Porto , as I have family living in the city , but I had heard so many people raving about it that I had to stay . It looks like an old townhouse from the outside and it actually used to be one . The owners have redesigned it keeping... More

This cozy, authentic and comfortable B&B reflects what one can expect from our people in Porto. Excellent hosts, respectful, truthful and cultivated. Favorita is an immediate favourite. It is located in an old building refurbished in good taste, in a arty neighbourhood, with lovely galeries. Very close to the Chrystal Palace and its gardens. Breakfast is home made and scrumptious.... More

Following tripadvisor's recommendations, we have been 100 % satisfied with our choice! We wanted to stay there for 2 nights but booked one more after our first night. Great location, excellent food in the restaurant, nice room, possibility to park and a small green garten. Very friendly staff and reasonable prices. We can only recommend it!! and it's difficult to... More
