I stayed in Pestana 7 days,
Location: is the best in the city, you are in the center of the old town by the river, if you have the river view you can enjoy beautiful sunsets and view on Gaia and Dom Luis bridge.
Personnel is friendly, helpful, great breakfast but after a while you will not touch a thing, every day the same thing. Clean hotel!!! Recommend because of the location!!!
Is it 4 star hotel?? I would say, NO, it is a 3 star hotel max.
Why?? many things are missing, You do not get robe or hotels pantoffels, Basic things like make-up mirror is not there. Hangers in closets are disaster, overall furniture is brown and old and doesn't look like it should be in a 4star expensive hotel. Beds are quite hard and I belive it is not a proper hotel bed. I do not like the yellow marble in bathrooms but I could live with it, but the worst is the carpet. Carpet is very similar to one in hallways. It is really ugly, feels dirty. Tv is LCD but It would be better if it would not be there. Same applies for Grundig audio System (really worst system I have seen) Electricity switches of when you remove the card, applies to outlets and aircon. So I recommend leave one card in the slot.
Hotel doesn't have own restaurant. It is a good thing, because around you can get really good food. Ask in a Lobby and do not eat in Tourist traps.
My suggestion!! do not stay in a room 503 (5th floor) and near elevators. Very loud, you can hear people talking when in elevator opening and closing doors. We changed the room to 301. all was fine and quite.
