On the Quai in Porto

Pros: Neat view over the river; convenient restaurant/breakfast facility. Welcoming staff.
Cons: I had one dinner there but felt overwhelmed by waiters fawning around me. I prefer to give an order and be left alone. I ate elsewhere after.
Location: Easy to walk to funicular railway (€2.50 each time; public transport card not acceptable). Center of town easily accessible from top.
The hotel comprises three very old houses (World Heritage Quality) upgraded to the 21st century. Modern facilities, nice breakfast, walking distance to a funicular up to the main city. Portuguese TV is mostly subtitled, so many channels have English-language programs.

Right on the river

Pros: Views and breakfast. Staff was very helpful in all ways.

Amazing location

We have been to Porto several times while visiting Portugal. Pestana Porto was recommended by friends - so I booked without doing my normal research. We were thrilled with the fabulous location and great view from our window. Our only disappointment was that we were only booked for one short night (checked in at 5pm and had a 6am flight to catch in the morning). Our room was in the new section with views looking across the Douro to all the iconic Port Cellars. Great restaurants and bars at our door step. The opening sound proof windows and sitting area were all part of making our last night in Portugal memorable.

Deceptive room descriptions

DON'T STAY HERE! The room descriptions are deceptive. A "deluxe double full riverview room" is a closet (the bed fit in the room but there was not enough space left over for a chair and desk). There are slightly larger rooms without the river view. Front desk staff not helpful--said they would help us find another room and would call us back but then never did, etc. I wouldn't send my worst enemy here.\n\nIf they want to be truthful, they should tell us the square footage of their rooms...or offer pictures.
