The hotel is very clean and the rooms are very good. The hotel is located in one of the most well known streets in Porto but in a quite zone providing some comfort. It is not very far from the old town. You can go easily buy bus, taxi or metro to every where. It is also close to the... More

Top of its game for a 4 star hotel. A smart, modern, surprisingly quiet and a relaxing hotel (for non business guests) with very good service. The soundproof room was clean, the spa excellent and bed and linen superbly comfortable. The only down side is its position approx 7 kms from the city centre and historic district so you need...

Overall the hotel is good, not brand new but very recent and well maintained, rooms are a decent size, very clean and with a nice bathroom and shower. All the rooms I've stayed in had a bathtub and not a... More

Stayed in this hotel for three nights. The hotel has a modern atmosphere in the common areas, with great and friendly staff. The rooms are less modern, but still very comfortable. They are spacious, with a big hall, bathroom and good and big bed. We've had dinner in the restaurant the first night and were surprised by the level of... More

Stayed here for 5 nights. My first visit to Opporto. It's a very professional hotel, great looking but is slightly away from the main tourist areas. It is more of a buisness hotel i guess. Great breakfast, and a lovely big room - room 516. The hotel has a restaurant and bar in the evenings. taxi ride into the old... More

I traveled to Porto with my brother for 2 nights, and we decided to stay at the BessaHotel Boavista. Location: about 10 minutes walk to the next metro station, from which you just need a couple of minutes to go to the city center. The metro also goes to the airport, this takes about 15 minutes. You can also walk... More

The hotel is located in a residential suburb but is an excellent hotel. Not too far from the centre of town though. Rooms and beads are very comfortable. Breakfast is good though in the basement. the reception staff is very helpful. Would use it again for sure.

The location is not optimal, being a few kilometers from the town centre, but at least the taxis are cheap. The rooms are spacious, clean and modern with nice bathrooms. We had a family room which was actually 2 normal rooms connected. That gave us 2 bathrooms and lots of space. The breakfast is good with the usual selection of... More
