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

TV channels galore, modern and nice amenities. Comfortable beds and quiet. Breakfast was good with efficient staff. Can recommend yellow bus tour with 2 days buses, river cruise... More

It is a well deserved 4* hotel! Rooms are clean and comfy, toilet is big and clean, staff is friendly, breakfast is pretty good and the decoration is really nice! Stayed for a week and I can only say good things about this place. And it's located just 10 - 15 min to the city centre.

The hotel is located in fairly quiet surroundings close to the stadium of football club Boavista FC. The check-in went smoothly and the staff made you feel genuinely at home. The hotel grounds are well-maintained and leave a very trendy impression - especially at the lobby, in the snack bar and the restaurant. The breakfast buffet at the restaurant is... More

A wonderful place, elegant and warm. We had a family room, which consisted of two communicating rooms. The rooms are very large and comfortable. Staff is very helpful. Although it is not in the city center, you can reach the bus stop in just 5 minutes. It is 50 meters from the Boavista stadium, in case you want to enjoy... More

Our family stayed three nights at the Bessa Hotel. Although we weren't in the river, our location was awesome. We were able to catch a tour bus just around the corner, which was perfect. The staff was fantastic as was the breakfast. We will return!
