Pestana Porto Review

Right in Porto's historic heart, the Pestana Porto is in a restored former warehouse abutted by a medieval wall, linked to several neighboring former houses; as a result, every room is different and some are unusually shaped. They have river views or overlook an alley in the Ribeira; all are contemporary, cozy, and almost cluttered with vibrant fabrics, plush carpets, throw pillows, and upholstered chairs, offsetting the restored stone window jambs and lintels. Above the reception a mezzanine comprises a business center and a small lounge with a river view. Parking (€16.50 daily) is in a nearby garage with which the hotel has an accord.
