This is my fourth time in this hotel. Unfortunately, it became a very sought after destination and the quality has gone down. If you are planning a visit, make sure you get a river view room, but avoid the 6th floor close size rooms.

This hotel is right in the heart of the action in Porto. Staff are all amazing from the front desk to the breakfast waitress. Easy to get around to all the highlights in Porto by foot. The front desk are excellent for information and directions. We stayed 3 nights but could have done all the sights in 2.

The Pestana Porto hotel is located in the heart of the tourist bursting harbor area, but it is not the hotel's fault. The hotel itself is peaceful and quiet, the breakfast is excellent and the rooms are pretty.

What a wonderful location! My husband and I took the Duoro River Cruise down from the Duoro Valley.We went through two locks that were fascinating to see how they worked. It was a wonderful day. We ended up docked directly in front of the hotel. The staff was quite friendly, and the bell hop showed us to our room. Our... More

We visited Porto in July of 2014 for 4 nights and had a fantastic visit. This gem of a hotel is located right in the heart of all the activity that happens along the river front. It's a beautifully restored building and the staff couldn't be more helpful. My only complaint is that since our room faced another building (vs.... More

I knew we'd picked a great hotel when we were greeted with a nice glass of port on our late night arrival. Everything about this hotel was great. Perfect location, lovely room, excellent breakfast and friendly and helpful staff. We stayed four nights.

My comments on other reviews are; Yes the bellhop is there but smiled and retreated when we said we would manage. Our complimentary drinks were most welcome as we had carried our bags from the train station on quite a hot day. I though the breakfast choice was very good and the orange juice fresh. But our lighting was certainly... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it is a great location on the Douro river,with views of the port wine lodges. We were concerned about noise from the river but our river view room was quiet and very comfortable. That is until Monday morning when the drilling and banging started right adjacent to our room where the hotel is... More

The hotel is advertised as a four star hotel and there were some nice flourishes consistent with this rating. Sadly, the hotel was let down by the basics and, on the basis of our stay, we couldn’t recommend it. We were greeted at reception by one of the staff offering us a welcome drink. Nice, but it would have been... More

It is located in the most crowded place in Porto but once you are inside it is perfectly quiet and calm. We enjoyed four nights there and we have nothing to complain. Breakfast is rather small in choice but a great quality, all people there very friendly and extremely polite. We especially appreciate they do not always ask "how are... More
