I stayed at this lovely hotel last year. We were living in Europe at the time and down in Portugal for a business trip. When we found that we had a few days off, we visited Porto for three days and we were lucky to get a room at the Pestana. This is a beautiful elegant hotel on the river.... More

Very nice hotel with a fabulous location . Spacious rooms, very clean, decent breakfast. Very friendly staff, only complaint would be staff referrals. We felt the restaurants they sent us to were marginal, and way too touristy. They did not encourage us to do a Duoro Valley tour, but thank goodness we found one on our own. We loved the... More

Our travel agent booked us into this hotel, I think through some other website, so our reservation must have been for the cheapest room. Don't do that. We were lucky to upgrade when we got there and had rooms with amazing river views that made us feel a part of the action. (Though once we closed the doors, it was... More

The hotel (Prestana Hotel Group) offers best price guarantee but only if you book directly with them. Please note that their rate is published in EURO and NOT in US DOLLAR and also keep in mind there are plenty of different types of rooms, some with breakfast or taxes included, so you really have to be sure to compare "apple...

Had a wonderful stay in May with very attentive staff. Lovely rooms well appointed. The location is excellent, especially well located for riverside restaurants and river trips as well as walking in the city.

Our room was very spacious and beautifuly furnished. The bed and quilts were so comfortable, we also had a view of the river which was magical at night time. We had... More

We spent 2nights at this hotel. The staff was wonderful and the rooms were beautifully decorated. However, the mall amenities that one would expect in a hotel of this caliber were lacking. We even had to pay for a bottle of water in the room. All other hotels in Portugal had a small bottle of port or evening candies or... More

There are two "Pousada" operations in Oporto: this hotel and the rather more upmarket and out-of-town, converted mansion house. We visited the Pousada, at least the public areas which take up pretty much all of the old building with bedrooms (I think) in newer constructions and had a splendid meal there. That said I think the hotel is in a... More

Second time we have stayed at this hotel, and we try not to go anywhere twice just because it is a big world out there. Finding ourselves back in Porto there is only one place to stay, despite newer hotels popping up in the city since we last visited. The Pestana is right on the river front and is about... More
