16th Century hotel on the river, great room, great location and high quality linens and towels.... Best staff, great breakfast loved the fresh squeezed OJ and fresh fruit smoothies...I cannot say enough good stuff about this hotel and the best staff I've ever dealt with in all my years of travel. Bravo in all areas!

Loved this hotel. We were upgraded to the top floor overlooking the river and bridge. Breakfast was great as well. My only complaint would be the restaurant was REALLY expensive. We ended up not eating there (other than breakfast). We learned on our trip through portugal that you don't need to pay top dollar for an amazing meal. The best... More

We booked three nights at this outstanding Pousada located directly on the Douro river. From this location we were able to walk and explore so much of Porto. The port houses were just over the bridge. From a fabulous breakfast to the character of a well appointed hotel in 16th./17th. century connected buildings -everything was superb!

We stayed here for a few days just after Christmas. What a beautiful location, right on the river. I had booked a river view room, and asked for a corner room, so we were very lucky to be given room 402, which has five balcony windows (2 in the bathroom), giving amazing views of both the river - with all...

There were things I liked about this hotel and things I didn't. This was the third and last hotel I stayed in Porto (and 4th in Portugal) and it was my least favorite and just as expensive as the rest so the value was horrible. The Bad: My husband and I stayed the first night in a room with two... More

We had planned a multi centre holiday to take in Porto, the Azores and Lisbon. In anticipation of this holiday most of our research had been consumed by the Azores, leaving us a little unsure of what to expect at our first stop. We were not disappointed, the hotel and city were fantastic. We were met with a pink Port... More

We went to Porto for a weekend in Nov 2015. The sun was shining, the city was wonderful, the people were friendly and helpful and the Pestana Hotel was simply amazing! We took the pre-paid deal and everything was perfect! We could even check-in at 12:00 when we arrived! The room was spacious and very clean, with an amazing view... More
