We had two nights in this lovely property before catching a riverboat cruise up the Douro River. Nothing could have been done better. We spent the extra money on a river view room. I highly recommend that. The room was large and the view across the river toward Vila Nova de Gaia and all the port wine warehouses was beautiful.... More

Great location. Good service and breakfast. A room with Riverview is a must. Try to get one on the corner. With balcony. The rooms in the middle are a bit small. Rooms are sound proof. Quiet a necessity since the Praca is lively.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in August 2014. The hotel is right along the water front and in the heart of all the action. The room was lovely and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were amazing - I need to find our where to get them! The hotel had a great breakfast buffet... More

A great location to watch the world go by- busy al the time! Port tasting just over the bridge. Cafés along the water Thursday/Friday had markets out the front along the waterside. Bit of a walk up to the town "centre" but when ever we were walking around it was fairly dead. Lots of closed shops (I believe some nightlife-... More

Located right on the river directly across from the Port Houses. The hotel is well maintained with spacious, clean rooms. Upon arrival a small bottle of port and tarts await you in your room. Restaurants are close with many to choose from. It is easy to walk to any of the points of interest in Porto from the hotel. Luckily... More

Reservations were easily made through a phone call directly where we got the best rates and room information. The hotel is located almost on the river at the bottom of the historical Unesco heritage site neighborhood. This location is the best in Porto. Get a river view room with a small balcony as the back rooms face other small buildings... More

You really can't get more in the center of the action in Porto than this hotel's location right on Ribeira Square. There are a few caveats, however. Getting your car down to the front door then back up to the main street and the public parking garage can be a bit of a hair-raising experience, and it you don't do... More

This hotel is located on the riverside in Porto, facing the Douro river and entrance from a square with, vendors, cafes, restaurants, shops, boat access, etc. This is a very picturesque and prime Porto location. The building is historic and the accommodation is excellent. Our room was facing the river and the promenade along the river. The front desk and... More

When we arrived, for some reason the street was blocked so we had to bring our suitcases down the hill to the hotel. When we arrived, the bell hop was rather rude. The lady with him was friendly, but the man left a poor first impression. The front desk person handled everything - check-in/check-out, making reservations and explaining the city... More

Pestana Porto is in a world heritage site of Ribeira in Porto, directly across the river from the famous port lodges. The hotel is very comfortable, we had a charming river view, and the breakfast buffet and service were both very good. We got a free upgrade to a junior suite. The neighborhood has many nice little restaurants and shops,... More
