Beautiful hotel with friendly staff and delicious included breakfast. The main area is adorned with original Fresca, fireplace and antiques. The gardens are beautiful and are overlooking the lake. The rooms are large with tall ceilings and comfortable bed. Included wifi and cable tv. Will be looking forward to coming here again.

The staff were really nice, friendly and professional speaking 3-4 languages. The room was perfect for a family of 3. We did enjoy every morning the Spa and the indoor swimming pool.... It was a bit fresh for the nice outdoor swimming pool. While the hotel is outside of the city centre, its only 6 min away by Uber cab...

My boyfriend and I LOVED this hotel. The staff were simply fabulous, the hotel itself, with all it's architecture, and the view from the suite on the Douro were just amazing. The staff at the spa were also fantastic and the massages were really good. We will definitely go back there again. It was a little outside of Porto, but...

Visited for a long weekend in January. It rained a lot so thankfully the hotel lived up to expectations and was great to explore and hang out in. The shuttle service was excellent as it was really nice to be away from the hustle and bustle closer to the Centre. Fantastic breakfast. And overall very good value for what you...

Remarkable example of an historical architecture preserved in a wonderful hotel with an excellent staff. Very clean rooms with lots of space, confortable beds, breath taking views of Douro River and excellent food.

Just enjoyed a nice afternoon at the SPA. The massage was perfect! Enough time to relax and release the every day stress! Then the sauna and the pool were amazing. An overall excellent experience that everyone should try! Totally recommend!

I visited Porto with several friends for a long weekend away, I selected this hotel from searching the net and wasn't sure what to expect. I caught the metro to a local station then a short taxi to the hotel, the hotel is located in a bizarre position as there is not much around it. However, once inside the walls...

Based on photos on the web I thought this looked beautiful. Unfortunately it was not explained that the bedrooms were not in the palace but in an adjoining building which was a converted grain factory. The rooms were modern and completely without character and very dark colours. The corridors were painted dark brown and very dingy. The rooms in the...

Few weeks ago, my parents decided to visit Porto and choose to stay in the Pestana Palacio do Freixo… I am glad they did! I decided to surprise them with some gifts and I contact the hotel few days before them stay. Paula at the front desk was so helpful, she answered my email quickly and provide some great idea...
