What a delight. I don't like staying at hotels but this was another level of experience. I can't wait to go back. It was luxury, elegance, tastefulness, - all in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. It combined both its past as a palace with its present commercial function with exquisite tastefulness! Sophisticatedly simple!! In future I will include a stay there as one of the highlights of my regular visits to Portugal!

I had originally booked an extended stay in a hotel on/in the Ribeira, but football championships and ardent fans made that too crazy for me, and that staff (Vintage Porto) helped me move to the Palacio do Frexio, and the place is amazing! They graciously moved to me to a suite, so I had the space and amenities that I really needed for this vacation. The beds are wonderful and the room clean and well-appointed. But here, as at the Vintage, it is the staff that make this place remarkable. From the reception desk, to the valets, to the restaurant staff, to the housekeepers - all were warm and exceptionally helpful. The location is not central, but they have a van that travels to and from town frequently, so you won't miss much. It's also not a bad walk into town, if you're so inclined. I honestly can't thank the staff here enough for an amazing stay. (Especially appreciated since I just missed CVD lockdowns!!)

We chose this charming palace hotel to start our honeymoon in Portugal and could not get more spoiled than that! Pestana Palácio de Freixo can enchant you with its precious interior design and peace. Moreover, the staff surprised us with a lovely upgrade to a room with a romantic view over the beautiful Douro. We loved feeling at the centre of their attention also during breakfast, with excellent buffet and service, as well as throughout our stay, with tips and assistance from the receptionists. We will treasure these moments!
