Fodor's Expert Review Pestana Vintage Porto

Praça da Ribeira 1, Porto, Porto, 4050-513, Portugal

Located in Porto's historic heart, the Pestana Vintage Porto occupies a restored warehouse abutted by a medieval wall that links to several neighboring former houses; as a result, every room is different and some are unusually shaped. Some have river views, while others overlook an alley in the Ribeira. All are modern, cozy, and colorful with vibrant fabrics, throw pillows, and upholstered chairs, offsetting the restored stone window jambs and lintels. The hotel is home to Rib, a newly opened steak house helmed by locally acclaimed chef Rui Martins. Off-site parking is available (€22 daily; inquire at reception).
