“Nice hotel in the Ribiera district of Porto”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

We stayed 3 nights at the Pestana Porto in early April. The hotel is located right on the Ribiera. We had a lovely room with a balcony looking out at the Douro river, the Luis bridge and Gaia across the river. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Ofcourse it is hard to beat the location of this hotel as the views are stunning and there is constant action in the streets below- there was no issue of being disturbed at night though. The hotel serves nice breakfasts and the staff are helpful and polite.

We stayed in a corner room with a view of the Douro and Gaia that was amazing. The staff were very helpful. The location was close to many great restaurants as well as the Hop On Hop Off bus and a walk to Gaia to visit the Caves and taste the varieties of port wine was-easy. One of my fav hotels,

We stayed at this hotel for two nights, one of them being after our wedding. A few days before I asked for an early check in so I could get ready for the wedding, make and other stuff. The reception lady was very helpful and even sent a request to the council so my driver could collect me from the main door, this is due to the street being closed to normal traffic.
On the day, the room was not ready on time and the gentleman I spoke to didn't look bothered that I had to get ready for my wedding, just acted like it was nothing important. Our friends were staying at the hotel and they let me use their room and managed to get ready on time, not thanks to the hotel staff. Also, they saw us struggling with the case, dress and flowers and didn't even offered to help.
When we returned late at night, we completely forgot that the hour changed, so we were unable to order breakfast in bed, something that could have been mentioned to us as a newly married couple.
In overall, the hotel is in very good location, good views if you get the right room, breakfast was good (we managed to get it on the second day), clean but would recommend some modernisation. I think the staff just needs to be more polite and remember more details.
As I'm originally from Porto this is not a hotel I will be returning.

Room Tip: Get one with a view, you wont be disappointed.

Ribeira is by far the most beautiful area of Porto. Pestana Porto is at the dead centre of that area and has superb views og the Luis 1 bridge and across the river. Our room was 402 and is the best in the hotel, having a corner position and balcony with views across the river and over the square with amazing panoramic view of the bridge. It was also very spacious with a large and well appointed bathroom and a gigantic and comfortable bed. Should I ever return to Porto it will only be when I can secure that particular room - it made our stay immeasurably better.

The rest of the hotel was well up to standard and well staffed with people who all worked hard to make our stay perfect.

Room Tip: Room 402! It's got the view.

I was lucky enough to stay in Porto recently, and this hotel was just super. It is in a great location beside the river, bars restaurants etc, and looking over to the Great names of Port on the other side of the river. The staff I met were all very nice and helpfull. My room was on the 4th Floor with two sets of french doors opening out onto a small balcony looking over the river, fantastic! The room it self was very comfortable, and well appointed. Breakfast was very good, with a wide choice and again a nice view of the river. It was a special place to stay and I really hope to get back to it again.

Hotel is between "average" and "very good." It needs an update. Best feature is the proximity to the river and downtown area. The location can't be beat. Making most of the sites walkable. Keep in mind all rooms have a different configuration. Few have river views. If that's what you desire you'll need to book a room in that category. The view can't be beat unless you're at the Yeatman. What's considered a "city view" is actually a back alley view facing a building you could almost reach out and touch. Was fortunate to be upgraded and not have to tolerate a small dark "city" view room that faced construction.

Raquel at the front desk was the best part of my stay. She was kind, professional, educated, and always willing to help. Kindlt booking restaurant reservations. With great suggestions. She's beyond awesome. Why I give a "very good" rating while the hotel itself is "average." Breakfast was good. Had enough selection to get you through a few days. Should you stay more than 3-4 days, you might tire of the selection. All staff was professional and willing to help.

Room Tip: Splurge for a river view.

This hotel is located in front line of Douro River with a complete view of Ribeira, Gaia and D. Luis bridge. One of the best pleasures you may find is to open your window and surrender to one of the most beautiful city views in the world. Rooms are very nice, service is excelent.
