On the waterfront of the legendary Douro, with fabulous views over the river and the historic Port wine houses on the other bank, the four star Pestana Porto hotel has the most enchanting location in Porto. It is situated right on the charming historic Ribeira square, the discerning travellers first port of call. With this privileged location, merely staying at this hotel already means that one has experienced the inimitable essence of Porto, and it is also an excellent base from which to explore the Unesco World Heritage proclaimed historic city centre, with all the most important landmarks within walking distance. Or take the historic tram to the mouth of the Douro, or even a cruise on the river, departing from the waterfront right in front of the hotel. The hotel itself forms part of the more than 2000 year history of Porto, incorporating a group of buildings dating back to the sixteenth century; it has been completely rebuilt as a luxurious modern hotel, offering all the comfort and facilities modern travellers could wish for. This combination of location, history and comfort means that all visitors leave with special memories.

great base for exploring Porto

We had the most beautiful room overlooking the Douro and a fantastic choice of cafes and restaurants to eat at. The hotel staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

Shopping tip: Long walk from hotel

It is a very steep hill up to Porto well worth the 2 euros to take the binocular.

Excellent choice-- in a great location!

The Pestana Porto is in a superb location on the river just across from the Port Lodges, which are easily reached by foot via a bridge one block away. The Ribeira where the hotel is located is a bustling UNESCO world heritage site and the hotel is very comfortable, with a good breakfast. Lots of small restaurants in walking distance.

Lovely place to stay

We really enjoyed our stay at Pestana. Location was perfect, right on the river with a great view of the bridge from our room. Breakfast had a good variety of foods, all staffer came across were friendly and the hotel was well looked after. Our only negative point was that we were woken up by builders early in the morning as they are renovating the building next door. This made the room a little less comfortable but no other complaints.

Great Hotel

Had a short holiday with friends. The hotel has a lovely location by the River Douro and serves a good buffet breakfast. We found all the staff to be most helpful, knowledgeable, efficient, friendly and most all spoke English. Situated accross the river are all the most famous port wine producers who offer river cruise trips and tours of their cellars, and free tastings! There were six of us on the holiday and are unanimous in our opinion that this is a great hotel to stay at.

Best stay in Porto

Impressively situated hotel in front of the Douro. Efficient and very warm welcome. Unhappily, the wi-fi net was weak. This hotel is a very advisable stay in Porto

Excellent except for internet access

An excellent experience in a great location mared only by a terrible internet access. They used an internet system that only work if you constantly re-logged on with a long and complicated access/password system. And then it would drop out.

Location, location, location

Hotel Pestana is the perfect place to stay in Porto if you want to be close to the waterfront and the wonderful port houses across the river in Gaia. The staff couldn't have been any better and the breakfasts were well above average. The only complaint we had was the poor quality of the mattress. The padding was so thin, I could feel the springs with my fingers.

Walk around the right side of the hotel into an alley and dine at Ora Viva. The host is most helpful in every respect and he will give you a great meal.

Gorgeous historic riverside hotel in Porto

We had a river view in this wonderful hotel, right over a lively square (although the room was remarkably soundproof). The front desk staff were helpful and kind. The bar had a somewhat limited supply of drinks for American tastes, and the attendant was a bit limited in English (unlike the front desk), but she did her best, and we didn't go away thirsty. The location is steps away from good restaurants, tourist attractions and shops.
