          When we arrived we had excellent service from the check-in clerk. Internet in the foyer is free. Food and service at the hotel was exceptional! Would definitely come back! On a 3 month road trip, this hotel felt like a home away from home.

          Located a bit far from the city but the hotel and service made up for it. It's about a 45 minute walk.

        • Group of friends

          The hotel seems to be new, it is stylish, clean and very nice. The web page did not lie about the distance from the centre, which sometimes is a problem..

          The staff were quite snobbish and not too friendly. The restaurant staff either need immediate training or replacing... (except for the chef - the food was very good!) If one has to pay full price, the hotel is severely overpriced.

        • Group of friends

          We enjoyed the luxury and comfort of the room and en suite. The dinner was excellent with an exciting menu and the breakfast buffet had something for everyone at a value for money price. The staff were friendly but professional. We also loved the stylish decor and spent a pleasant after dinner evening with cocktails in the lounge area. A perfect last evening before flying back to England the next day.

          The design of the hotel was sleek and yet welcoming. The staff was superlative, helpful and gracious. Everything was immaculately clean. Food in restaurant excellent and reasonable.

          Would have preferred rolls to cookies as complimentary breakfast. Phone system and electrical connections were problematic but addressed by the hotel.

          Our suite was wonderful and we made good use of the terrace. Very comfortable and stylish hotel, and we found the location very good as Francos metro just a short walk away and buses to town easy to find. We really enjoyed the facilities and had a relaxing and peaceful time. Highly recommended.

          Can't think of anything at all.

          Very nice staff. A lot of choice at the breakfast. Clean, well equiped rooms. Not in the city center but near a Metro station.

          Maybe a little more choice in the Room Service Manu would be nice.

          The hotel is very close to the Porto football stadium (Bessa). It is therefore very easy to find and a little bit outside the center of Porto (I.E. if you want to visit the city you will need a car/Taxi or metro - about 10 mins away). The hotel is brand new with nice and sober design. The rooms are clean and nice with a very comfortable bed and free wifi. Buffet breakfast was pretty good (9 €/person) with special mention to the orange juice. Something my daughters liked was the availability of 4 PCs with free internet access in the lobby. In summary, if you don't mind not being close to the city center, the Bessa hotel is a very good choice for business or pleasure. I'll go there again.

          I liked everything . I think it could be considered a 5 stars hotel if it had the swimming pool.

        • Older travelers

          Spacious rooms, modern equipment, clean, efficient, friendly staff, good buffet breakfast, quiet (south side), good local bus connections, motorway access uncomplicated(!) and safe(!) - important for strangers to Porto(!). Room safe malfunctioned : problem resolved promptly. Free wifi in the room.

          Minor point : in this class of hotel, just a small tissue packet instead of a box.
