I originally booked a standard room, but was offered a river view room for an additional 30 euro per night. It was well worth the price for the gorgeous view and the light from three sets of French doors. The staff was attentive and welcomed us with a glass of port on arrival. They were also very helpful throughout the... More

The positives: warm welcome, with friendly helpful staff, and a drink to start off a good visit. Room on third floor, with stunning view of Luiz 1 bridge, the Douro, and right at the heart of the old city. Good breakfast and pleasant bedroom. Impeccable staff service throughout our 3 night stay. Some room for improvement? Two single beds rather... More

We stayed three nights at the start of the month. It is in a super location at the centre of the old town so very convenient for the historical sights. It is also next to the weekend market and where there are lots of cafés and bars so expect to hear a bit of the hubbub that this creates. For... More

We regretted big-time staying at this hotel. Thank goodness, it was only for one night. The room has barely any amenities. Toiletries were minimum and we were given only 2 towels. There was no kettle to boil water which inconvenienced us terribly. When I return to Porto the next time, I will certainly avoid this hotel. There are plenty of... More

Cannot fault the Pestana Porto! First of all, you could not get a better position, right on the riverbank. Step outside the door and you are in the midst of all the colour (and smells) of the Douro with dozens of cafes and bars (as well as souvenir sellers and beggars) seeking your attention. Step back inside and you have... More

If you want to be on the river in the center of Porto, there isn't a better location. Our room was fine. It had a nice view of the river. My only complaint about the room was that there was construction right next door. But the workers started work late - I think it was about 9 - and finished... More

The hotel is clean and the staff very pleasant, but when we arrived it was located down a pedestrian street so had to park in a bus stop while one of us ran down to ask about parking. Would have been helpful if the information was provided in the booking. Sadly the breakfast is in line with the US cheap... More

Staff very friendly. Complimentary wine at check in which was perfect after a drive from the airport. Restaurants everywhere. Easy walk over the bridge to all the port wine tasting cellars. Breakfast very good and bed very comfortable.

Make sure you get one with a view and preferably on the 4th or 5th floor. It is so fascinating looking out at the activity below that it is hard to leave. It is a tourist area but there is so much choice for places to eat. You definitely don't need a car as you can walk to the main... More

Spent the weekend in Porto at this great hotel. Right on the water next to cafes, street vendors and river tour operators (a bit noisy in the late evening). A weekend here is not enough. The staff was outstanding, accommodating every request. Breakfast was included, and very good food and selection. You could have it delivered to your room for... More
