We stayed at this hotel for two nights 29 and 30 May 2015. We had a room with a beautiful view of the Douro river. Its location is perfect with a lively square just outside its door, and within easy walking distance to many of Porto's attractions. Staff were friendly and always willing to assist with any query and point... More

Situated on the lively quayside with views of Oporto's Dom Luis Bridge together with the port warehouses on the opposite bank of the Douro, the hotel's location was perfect as far as we were concerned. The city's sites are accessible on foot and you don't have to stray far to find a good restaurant for dinner in the evening. Although... More

Frankly, I’m often disappointed with hotels. However, the Pestana was the exception. Its location on the riverbank in the heart of the old town is superb. The hotel itself is recently refurbished and in excellent condition and the room we had was large, well equipped and spotlessly clean. We didn’t have a view, but there are rooms that look out...

This is a delightful hotel located right on the Douro River. It is the quintessential location to visit the old city of Porto. There must be at least 30 choices of restaurants and cafes within a two minute walk of this hotel. The hotel is a blend of two old buildings put together. It was clean and modern. The staff... More

Book real early because this is a fabulous hotel in a fabulous location. It's right in the Ribera on the Douro River. The Ribera is the happening place in Porto with lots of activity. Markets and great Restaurants, beautiful views and within walking distance to all major sights. Our room had a balcony which overlooked not only the beautiful River,... More

This is a lovely hotel, just on the water. A beautiful location. Made even better by glasses of port on arrival! The rooms were simple; comfortable bed, wardrobes, TV, desk. But had everything we needed. Kettles were provided on request. Nothing was too much trouble. There are plenty of places to eat and visit nearby. It's a little walk from... More

This hotel is situated in the heart of the tourist area in Porto which was a great location. The room was great- the only problem is that the room had no view and limited windows which made the room a bit on the dark side. The room had 2 levels. The entry level had the bathroom (which was a nice... More

We were just delighted to find this Porto hotel online and when we arrived, it was better than we had anticipated! We booked a Superior sea view which I would heartily recommend. So nice to open the big windows and step out to see the rive right in front. The king bedded room was spacious and very clean. We couldn't... More

The Ribeira is the place to be in Porto. Right in the middel of the Ribeira is the Pestana hotel situated. Surrounded by pleasant restaurants an bars. If you book the right room you have an nice vieuw on the river Douro en the bridges crossing it. Staff is very friendly an helpfull. Rooms are clean and spacious.
