We stayed here for two nights - we had a huge room with a separate sitting area overlooking the river. It was very comfy with a great view of the river and the lights across the river at night. Our room was very quiet we didn't hear any noises from the traffic outside. The hotel is well located to walk to the main attractions and to walk across the river to the port houses. There are a number of restaurants very close to go to dinner. Our breakfast buffet was included and it was great - a lot of choices of breads, pastries, fruits, yogurts, etc. Getting coffee though severed by the staff was slow though. When we checked in the staff were well prepared to welcome us and had our dealt with a request we had in our website reservation.

Great view, clean rooms, could not have asked for more. 1 stayed here 2 nights; on the first night of a business trip and also on the last night. Both rooms were incredible, but the 1st room faced the river which was absolutely stunning. I opened all the windows and just took it all in. Nice bathroom with jaccuzzi tub and a window with a great view of the sky. Lunch at nearby Avo Maria- an unbelievably perfect day in Oporto.

I absolutely loved this hotel. The location is fabulous, right on the river Duoro. We had a corner room with river view, it was wonderful. Room was large, big fluffy pillows, huge marble bathroom. Service was great, very friendly, prompt, all the staff speak fluent English. The Ribiera district was a good place to stay as all the restaurants, shops, walk along the river -- its all right there. The tourist double-decker bus stopped a block way so it was easy to get to sights, plus taxis are right there and cheap. I strongly recommend this hotel.

We went to Porto for the weekend and chose Pestana Hotel because of the location. The room had 3 French Windows overlooking the river. There was so much going on we never got bored looking out of the window, religious parades, tours, river cruises and revellers all passed by. The room was very comfortable with 2 armchairs a desk and a small but well appointed bathroom.
At night the view of the bridge and port houses was truly stunning. Restaurants and bars are literally on the doorstep.
If the walk up the hill to the City Centre seems daunting the funicular by the bridge takes you up there in minutes.
The walk to the port houses over the other side of the river is really easy and scenic and you get a great view of the World Heritage site and the hotel from the other side.
Porto is a fantastic place for a weekend and this hotel is brilliant

The biggest plus of this hotel is its location. Right at the river in the middle of bars and restaurants. Quite an advantage as it would be quite a climb to get to any other hotel after dinner. Then it's better to get uphill in the morning to do your sight-seeing. Starting point of hop-on-hop-off buses is also nearby.

Rooms are not huge but large enough, and provided with a safe and a mini-bar. The bathroom is a bit crowded with a bidet and a tub, but the shower is good, and you get hot water within a few seconds. Everything is nice and clean.

Breakfast is buffet-style with plenty choice and reasonable quality. There is no restaurant for lunch or dinner, but with so many places to choose from right nextdoor, that is no problem.

Checking in and out is a matter of a few minutes, staff is friendly, so nothing to complain about.

The only thing is, like so many other hotels, the airco is located in such a way that it blows right towards you when lying in bed.

To my opinion this is the best hotel for a city trip to Porto.

The hotel is well situated by the river Douro with restaurants on the doorstep. Pay extra for a river view it is worth it. Our room was on the top (5th) floor and had 3 separate sets of French doors onto a very narrow balcony overlooking the river. Wonderful.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
There is not a restaurant here for dinner but this is not a problem as there are numerous places to eat right on the hotels doorstep and along the river. We had good food at reasonable prices there. The breakfast at the hotel was good and no-one would go hungry!
We visited Graham's port wine cellars and it was well worth it. Very friendly guide and port tasting. A boat ride is also worth doing as you can see the spectacular bridges built over the Douro river and it only takes 1 hour. The town has a lot to offer and is very picturesque.
