This hotel has THE best location! Right on the water. Staff was sweet, we had a 4am wake up call for the airport and they were kind enough to bring us coffee and croissants late at night and offered us some delish port at check in! LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!

Just came home from a short stay in Porto. I chose this hotel for its location and was so pleased with everything! The location, as every one before me has pointed out, is unrivaled. Right on the water, a short (uphill) walk to the center - but really if you are only in Porto for a short time, the water... More

Great location on the river in the heart of the historical district in Porto. Quality 4-star hotel that lives up to its classification. River view room worth the additional cost. The location is noisy, but the windows are glazed for sound control. I enjoyed my stay immensely.

The hotel is perfectly located right on the historic waterfront. When we arrived by taxi from the station we were quite overwhelmed by how lovely the spot is, right next to daytime outside cafés and bars and walking distance to all sorts of eateries (although we found it difficult to get proper food in restaurants in Portugal outside of set...

We stayed in a river front room on the 5th floor. Absolutely loved our room and the view. The beds were comfortable with good pillows. Breakfast was good- best to get there a little on the early side as we had trouble getting a seat on the busy weekend. Of course, the best part was the location! Right outside the... More

This hotel has a great riverside location, above Porto's lively and historic Praça da Ribeira. "Ribeira" (Portuguese for "riverbank" or "riverside") is also the name for this neighborhood that forms part of central Porto's UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area charms with centuries-old architecture, sidewalk cafes and restaurants, small shops, and, of course, arresting views of the Douro River flanked... More

This hotel is right on the river and we had a corner room overlooking the market activities on the river front. There was scaffolding right around two sides of the building but, apart from keeping the windows locked for security, it didn't worry us. We might have been lucky but our room was really good. We found many places to... More

Awesome building with awesome views across the river (room 202), no complaints whatsoever about this hotel. Building work at the rear of the hotel was not noticeable unless you walked round the back of the hotel to look at it, there was absolutely no noise or disturbance from it in the room. One review says that robes are not supplied,... More

This hotel is in a fabulous location right on the river. We booked a suite with a river view. The room was lovely – it was just a pity that the view was through scaffolding and netting. We asked at the reception and they were happy to move us into another room the next day, which they did arrange. They... More

The Pestana is located next to the river at a very central location, there are plenty of nice restaurants (just avoid the touristy places directly at the square) and bars just a short stroll away. However, some of them up a steep hill. Staff is friendly and we were offered a glass of wine upon check-in. The rooms are on... More
