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.

My husband and I, both in our mid 50's, spent 3 days in Porto at the Pestana Porto Hotel. We stayed in room 402 and it was absolutely beautiful. The room was a corner unit and had a balcony on one side that you could see the restaurants and the river and also a balcony in the front facing the... More

We were allocated room 307 - the room didn't have much of a view but it was very... More

Right on the riverbank of Ribeira, river view rooms (well insulated) give lovely aspect of the (often bustling) Douro. Slightly tired decoration but comfortable bed, great linen & huge pillows. Breakfast can be hectic. WARNING: The hotel is undergoing a programme of extensive expansion into adjoining buildings, construction noise will start before 09.00 and on one evening lasted till after... More

It is an ideal base for exploring the city and visiting the port lodges over the river, all of which can be done on foot. We didn't bother with a rental car, got a taxi from the airport (25/30 Euros, about 20... More

This smaller, boutique hotel has by far the best location in Porto. It is right on the river near the bridge with the Ribeira area right out the front door. The Ribeira is the area along the river with many outdoor restaurants and bars. It is a very short walk to the bridge, the tram and the city center (however... More
