We reserved the river view room for ~$300 a night, not cheap but the location and great breakfast make it a nice choice! Breakfast in the Rib restaurant is outstanding (and included)! Eggs to order, full selection of deli meat cuts and cheese, fresh breads and pastries, and of course, fresh orange juice and ‘ espumante vhino’ (sparkling wine) will ruin your appetite for lunch!
We have realy enjoyed our stay in the Pestana Vintage Porto. After a disappointing stay in one of the Pestana Hotels in Madeira we where very happy to have this very good experience in Porto. Nice fresh rooms with a fantastic view and a nice interior with vintage furniture. The quality of the bedlinnen is great. Also all the staff very friendly and welcoming. In the evening we had dinner in the RIB Restaurant which also was a very good choice. The breakfast in the morning has a good and fresh selection. Nicely presented in small portions in buffet style. We will come back to this elegant Hotel
I ordered TWG mint tea and chocolate cake with ice cream for afternoon tea at the sidewalk bar and I’m terribly disappointed with the service by the server. “Hot water” was served but the tea flavour was not bringing the expected aroma and the water is tepid to me. So I told the server and a new pot of water was brought to me but no difference from before! Oh I forgot to mention while delivering the “hot water”, water was spilled over to my bag and jacket and no apologies. When my dessert order was delivered, the plate was left at the corner of the table which nearly made the plate to fell over so I have to hold it, but the ice cream was missing ...(dropped on the server’s tray)!!! So she told me to wait and will return with another ice cream and she was about to leave me holding on to the dessert plate without ice cream. I decided to tell her to bring the whole plate away and return with complete presentation. For a reputable hotel with untrained staff is totally unacceptable. I’m a frequent traveller and I know what trained services should be. Good to know that the server finally returned with a complete dessert presentation and an apology for the dessert experience. Please train your staff properly
The Pestana Hotel is the best hotel I have ever stayed in ever, period . The staff is first rate from check in to check out . You are greeted with a glass of Port Wine and from there the service continues . They are actually happy to see you . You will want a river view for sure . The attached restaurant will not disappoint as well . The front desk is amazing with all sorts of advise and service .
Great place to begin our Portugal visit. Lovely location near the river with great views. The room was spacious and clean. Our view was of the alleyway, but quaint in its own way! Excellent breakfast buffet. Very nice staff. It is great to simply walk the neighborhoods from here. Great restaurants within walking distance too.
This a great hotel in beautifully restored buildings on the river front - walking distance from anything you’d want to do in Porto. The staff was friendly and very helpful with directions, restaurant recommendations and reservations and even umbrellas. The breakfast buffet was varied and delicious and the complimentary welcome glass of port was a nice touch.
Excellent experience with the hotel and staff. Location is excellent! A great experience and would return again. I would not recommend the dining associated with the hotel. Much better local options within walking distance. Breakfast provided by the hotel was excellent!
Very good hotel if your staying in Porto great location by the River Douro .Staff very friendly and helpful ,very large and modern room which was clean and comfortable ,breakfast excellent with both hot and cold food
Lovely hotel with modern amenities in the most brilliant location and view of the river, bridge and Gaia. We enjoyed our walks along the river bank, the captivating sunsets and the vibrant lifestyle especially at night. The bar has an excellent selection of cocktails.
Just returned from Porto, pleasantly warm and sunny for November. The hotel had a superb location right by the 6 bridge cruise boat trip we did. We had a back room, but it was quiet clean and cosy. BREAKFSST WAS Good, staff were friendly. We walked the bridge several times, did the hello bookshop, the tower etc. We got the tram to Foz beach, after the city that made a nice change. Spectacular crashing waves! Lots of nice restaurants near this hotel and very quaint. We booked it as part of an easy jet holiday, got the Metro from the airport and then walked to hotel with just hand luggage. Can't really fault anything so 5 stars from us.
