We stayed 3 nights at the Pestana Porto in early April. The hotel is located right on the Ribiera. We had a lovely room with a balcony looking out at the Douro river, the Luis bridge and Gaia across the river. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Ofcourse it is hard to beat the location of this hotel as the... More

We stayed in a corner room with a view of the Douro and Gaia that was amazing. The staff were very helpful. The location was close to many great restaurants as well as the Hop On Hop Off bus and a walk to Gaia to visit the Caves and taste the varieties of port wine was-easy. One of my fav... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, one of them being after our wedding. A few days before I asked for an early check in so I could get ready for the wedding, make and other stuff. The reception lady was very helpful and even sent a request to the council so my driver could collect me from the... More

Ribeira is by far the most beautiful area of Porto. Pestana Porto is at the dead centre of that area and has superb views og the Luis 1 bridge and across the river. Our room was 402 and is the best in the hotel, having a corner position and balcony with views across the river and over the square with... More

I was lucky enough to stay in Porto recently, and this hotel was just super. It is in a great location beside the river, bars restaurants etc, and looking over to the Great names of Port on the other side of the river. The staff I met were all very nice and helpfull. My room was on the 4th Floor... More

Hotel is between "average" and "very good." It needs an update. Best feature is the proximity to the river and downtown area. The location can't be beat. Making most of the sites walkable. Keep in mind all rooms have a different configuration. Few have river views. If that's what you desire you'll need to book a room in that category.... More

This hotel is located in front line of Douro River with a complete view of Ribeira, Gaia and D. Luis bridge. One of the best pleasures you may find is to open your window and surrender to one of the most beautiful city views in the world. Rooms are very nice, service is excelent.

Don't let the medieval exterior fool you. This is a modern hotel with all the conveniences. Our room was a very comfortable unit although the main bedroom and anteroom/bathroom were on different levels separated by stairs. We had a great view over both the river and Ribera Square and the Cais. Hotel staff were both friendly and very helpful. You... More

Just had a short break in February to celebrate husbands 70th birthday. Absolutely wonderful time - fab hotel, brilliant attentive staff, all you could possibly eat for breakfast and spotlessly clean room double aspect overlooking the river. Could not speak more highly of everything including restaurants close by where we also received excellent service with delicious food.

There are many other hotels in Porto which offer a better price for accommodation but the location and view that the Pestana can offer is very difficult to match. The glass of port on arrival is a great start to a holiday! Difficult to fault the rooms and the service, the staff were always very accommodating - one of our... More
