Great location right on the riberia and plaza. Very helpful friendly staff. Lovely breakfast. Very convenient to walking to the sights or enjoying a drink/food on the plaza.
Modern hotel was in the perfect location in Porto. Very clean and comfortable room. Wifi is not the greatest. The breakfast included was very good (great value for the price of the room). Most of the staff were really friendly but some of the staff were a little snooty. Sorry, I am not old and don't look like the typical tourist. They were handing out free port for guest checking in and walked past me three times. Guess they don't think skateboarders like port or can afford to stay here. Great hotel though, they just don't like skaters. Ha!
I was actually wary of staying here because of some of the online reviews that I read, but was pleasantly surprised. The staff was so friendly & welcoming. They accommodated an early check-in, offered us a glass of port on arrival, and were extremely friendly & nice throughout our stay. Our room was also beautiful and large with modern amenities. Breakfasts were also outstanding with a huge selection of cold & hot items. And the location can't be beat for exploring Porto. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
