A narrow door, with a simple but stylistic sign, opens into an elegant town house. The comfortable sitting area, with a decanter of local port wine to welcome guests, looks over a beautifully landscaped garden. Family owned gives the house a unique personality. A continental breakfast with large variety of local breads, fruits, hams & cheese is served downstairs and... More

We had a very pleasant stay at Pensao Favourita. The staff are incredible - friendly, helpful and welcoming. The facilities are excellent and we really enjoyed our garden-facing room. The breakfast was very high quality, generous and delicious. Overall, we thought the place was incredibly customer-focused and run very professionally. A real oasis in Porto and yet walking distance from... More

We booked a room at a good rate on short notice and were provided a large family suite. The furniture and decor are timeless yet contemporary; quite beautiful. The room also included a small eating area with views overlooking the garden. Upon arrival, we were presented with glasses of port and good recommendations on what to do and see in... More

This is my second time staying at the favorita. I was so looking forward to coming back. The favorita is a beautiful old pensao which has been renovated with a light touch - beautiful large airy rooms with original features and high ceilings and tiles but modern super stylish decoration. The Favorita is on a quiet street, very central. The... More

Loved our stay here. Helpful staff in a quiet sort of bohemian atmosphere. An oasis in the city, tucked down a side street. Rooms are simple and sparse, but nice, and the price is very reasonable. A/C would be nice but they provide a fan so no biggie.

We just stayed here one night before taking off for the Duoro Valley. We opted for a garden room, which had a small, slightly below-grade sitting area on the garden. The room didn't have as much natural light as I prefer, but we spent the afternoon exploring the city so this wasn't much of a problem. The room was very... More

A very beautiful hotel! The interior design is very special and beautiful in detail! The sevice is great and the rooms are very cute! It takes 10 minutes to walk into the city center but the area itself is very nice as well (Art galleries, restaurants etc.).

We stayed at Pensao Favorita for two nights. At first glance, from the outside, it looked like a regular building. But inside, it was beautiful. The staff was fantastic and welcoming. They provided us with a map and recommended places to visit. We were within walking distance to a lot of historic buildings and the Douro River. The breakfast was... More
