Great hotel. Located at a very calm place near one of the main avenues in Oporto, Av. da Boavista. The rooms are very clean and modern. The TV has a channel which allow you to see the flights schedule of Oporto airport. The bathrooms have natural light and are well equipped. The breakfast is very good.

Bessa is a great hotel, with good rooms, nice staff and good breakfast. The style and overall finish is very good, beds comfty, and the bathrooms are bright and inviting. The view is probably the only bad thing, overlooking a parkinglot and marshland. Porto city centre is only 5€ / 5min by taxi so the distance isn't a problem.

This is a business hotel, so it's very quiet on weekends. I fully recommend it if you want to spend a calm night in a simple but comfortable hotel.

I was reserved a room in this hotel by my colleagues. The interior and exterior of the hotel is very modern. The rooms including the bathroom are very spacious. I wasn't expecting this much room. The workout room leaves a little to be desired as it is located in the bottom floor of the hotel and you feel kind of...

I was there on vacation in Europe with my wife. Although this hotel is just out of town it is worth the additional cab fares, the hotel is very clean friendly with very good service. Food and drinks are also reasonable if your used to London prices ! Wouldnt hesitate to stay there again.”

I loved this hotel, it was clean, modern and staff was lovely. It is not very central but it is a great choice anyway. Worth it.

The hotel is very close to the Porto football stadium. Good business center. Nice rooms and good quality of accommodation. Breakfast is amazing value, the choice is great and the food all perfectly presented. Freshly squeezed orange juice even! Free WiFi.

We stayed for 3 nights at the begining of October. We chose this hotel because we could easily drive to the hotel without driving into the city, and had secure underground parking. The drive into town is only 6 or 7 minutes, and the front desk had a taxi arrive to pick us up in about 5 minutes. The hotel...

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...

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...
