Nice hotel. The rooms were quite stylish, but one evening I`ve went to dinner and it was the most terrible food, I`ve ever had.
Unbelievable. I really wanted to go into the kitchen and show the cook how to cook a good pasta. The food wasn`t one cent worth!

Dear guest,

Thank you very much for you comment. All our guest's comments/suggestions/notes are very important for us.

Our cuisine is known by its exquisite food and it is quite odd that that have happened. Following your advice, we'll double check what might have happened.

We invite you to visit us again in a near future and give us a second chance. I am confident that you'll be delighted!

Kind Regards,

For quite some time, an hotel hasn't impressed me as mucho as this one did. Four star hotel, but awesome commodities.

The hotel is located in the biggest "boulevard" in Oporto, the "Avenida da Boavista".
The access is very easy, although, it is easier by car/taxi.

The hotel staff is very friendly, and always available to get you as comfortable as possible.

For a minimum of 50€(per night) in March, you get a room with the view for the big avenue, a very quiet and cosy room, enormous bathroom and everything is clean and shiny. decoration is good and the bed is probably one of the most comfortable bed I've ever been. No breakfast (for this price) though., but it won't be much of a problem, since Oporto is crawling with great patisseries and cafes and for great prices, just around the corner you can get a valuable and rich breakfast.

So yes, I totally recommend this hotel for brief or long stays, no matter the purpose of the visit.

Room Tip: Try the highest floors and with the south view. You get sunshine all day, no need for air conditioning (spring and fall only). But all rooms are great and sound-proof.

Spent three days at the Bessa Hotel while touring the Oporto region and had a great time while there. The hotel is very modern and upscale. It was a really comfortable place to stay. The restaurant and lounge were a little small but the food and service was excellent. The breakfast was sumptuous and was a great way to start every day.

Bessa hotel is a modern 4 star hotel in Oporto business district.
I had already stayed there in two business trips, but now I stayed with my wife in holiday weekend.
The rooms are quite good (inspite the decoration beeing a little bit "dark"), and the breakfast is very good.
The biggest drawback of the hotel is the location. It is a uggly place of Oporto near the Boavista football club stadium, with no good public transportation near by. So you either use taxis, or you bring your own car (this was my case) if you want to go to historical Oporto (4km away).

Very comfortable on the position for who, as me, have to travel around Port area with the car for business, indeed is very closed the motorway, but also in a very quit zone, if we exclude when the Boavista FC will play a football match (the hotek is at only 200 m from the Boavista stadium).
The interiors are very nice and very well cared, with all the comfort that a 4 stars hotel must have. Even the restaurant was very good, but quite expensive.
