Wow...nothing to fault. This may not be the most central hotel for touring Porto, but if you got closer you would pay lots more! Lovely, modern ambiance, great service and huge room. Stayed in the Superior, which gives you a HUGE balcony with lounge chairs and seating area. We got lucky with beautiful weather and it was nice spending the time in the morning sunning out there (you can get pillows for the lounger from reception). Room is also huge with big, comfy bed and large table complete with espresso maker. Bathroom was also enormous (for hotel standards) with incredible rain shower and jacuzzi tub. Free wifi for up to 3 devices and the breakfast was nice. My go to hotel for Porto!!

Room Tip: Superior room has huge balcony! Perfect if the weather is nice.

Very nice accommodations and efficient happy-hour restaurant! The location is not good for a few-hour tourism, as there is nothing touristic around the hotel but if you have someone to pick you up and a very busy day, you will not realize that you are isolated. I strongly recommend it!!

Hotel Bessa is a good place for a short stay in Porto given it's proximity to the airport - €15 cab ride. If you want to see Porto though then the location isn't the best, right opposite the Boa Vista stadium and near no where of any interest .
Check in was smooth with receptionist speaking good English and offering good advice on places to eat.
The room, while not huge is very nice, big comfy bed, modern, clean bathroom and stunning views of a patch a wasteland to the rear of the hotel.

While Bessa is certainly a good hotel it is really only good for the business traveller due to it's location but if I find myself in Porto again with work I'll definitely use it again.

Room Tip: Not the place to stay if you want to see the city of Porto, but if you're on business or need somewhere reasonably close to the airport, it ticks all the boxes.

I visited this hotel on a business trip in the cold February-March weather. It was a business trip so I had not booked it myself.

The hotel is not that far from the airport and is conveniently located. It is a new hotel, so the architecture and interiors are typical of a business hotel. The neighbourhood is quite but not located in a place that is not very close to restaurants or shopping arcades. So for a tourist, this is not the best place to stay.

Good things about the hotel were the quality of the rooms, the service levels and the agility of providing cabs and other needs. The staff was polite and friendly and gave good advice. However, they were not comfortable with speaking in English and at times it would get difficult to convey the message.

The rooms were well done, the wifi was superfast and the coffee shop was good.

However, the hotel restaurant did not have many options (only salad and soup for vegetarians!) and was quite expensive compared to other restaurants 5-6 miles down the hotel near the river.

Good for business trips only.

Room Tip: If you are a vegetarian, then carry some snacks. The hotel restaurant has no veg meals on the menu.

I chose the hotel because it was easy to reach from the airport. For tourism the location is not OK, since it is in a new, quite area, with no life. But the hotel is new, clean, comfortable, with (paid) parking, good breakfast. Very good value.
