The hotel was very nice, more business oriented than recreational travel. The breakfast buffet was excellent however and the hotel staff very helpful and friendly. I'd stay for sure if I were travelling for business but not if I wanted to take in the sights of old town and tour around. Also, the deal that we got was great and... More

We thought this was an excellent hotel in Porto. The rooms were large, clean, stylish and well designed. The bathrooms were gorgeous and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. And the breakfast was fantastic (one of the best meals we had all holiday!) and great value. It is possible to park on the streets near the hotel and they... More

Travelling with our family (2 adults, 2 kids) we stayed in a Suite. It was super comfortable -- great bedding, ammenties, room services, etc.. Our room had a fantastic balcony overlooking the Bessa area. We choose this hotel to be near family in the Bessa/Bovista area. It was a very short walk to the Bessa stadium for soccer/football fans.

I stayed at the Bessa Hotel for nearly a week as part of a conference I attended in Porto. The hotel is just great, the rooms, the service, the products are excellent. The only shortcoming might be its location, but if you do not mind paying 5-7 euros for taxi to city center this hotel will not let you down.

This hotel is a wonderfully designed hotel with spacious comfortable rooms, with lots of pampering feel to it. Service is kind and helpful, and all extra services reasonable priced. I have enjoyed my stay here very much and warmly recommend the place to anyone else visiting Porto. Only one shortcoming is the hotel's location which is far away from the... More

We stayed for three nights in total, either side of a football match, having been stranded for an extra night due to the General Strike. This hotel is located in a smart residential part of town, on the side of the Boavista stadium. Ultra modern, stylish and luxurious, the staff are uber professional and efficient, yet supremly friendly. Free internet... More

Stayed here for business (offsite conference) for four days at the beginning of June 2010. Can't recommend it higher - was a lovely place to stay, with immaculate rooms that seemed like new. Staff were excellent, particularly our friendly waitress who was always there to help out (or fetch another drink!). Staff seemed to enjoy their work, and plenty of... More

For business again in Porto at the end of March, decided to try the Bessa hotel for its convenient location and affordable price. Quite near the Sheraton, where I have been a few times this seemed a good option. Located beside the Bessa stadion, near Boavista avenue, a 15minute walk to the metro or 15minute walk to the nearest shopping... More
