The hotel, which has just doubled its capacity and benefitted from a full refurbishment, overlooks the Douro river and is the perfect spot to discover Oporto. Boasting a chic retro and contemporary interior design, it works in perfect harmony with its historic character. The hotel now has a total of 103 rooms, as well as a new lobby bar, terrace, wellness room and its latest addition – new restaurant RIB Beef & Wine.
RIB Beef & Wine has already become a must-visit spot in town and a shrine for the beef purists. The menu, designed by Rui Martins includes a mouth-watering selection of meat cuts from exclusive suppliers – including their two ‘tour de force’, the Tomahawk and the Chuletón – all paired with delicious side dishes and impeccable service. Tucked between the riverbank esplanade and a typical historic Oporto street, the restaurant and its bar feature a décor rich in colour and details, creating a captivating atmosphere that welcomes both guests and locals.
The wine list comprises both renowned and young brands that can be purchased directly at RIB’s wine boutique. In addition, the boutique has recently partnered with the Douro Boys, a group of five of the best regional wine estates, to offer activities at the hotel including wine tasting, workshops, courses and new launches.
Set in the city's medieval walls, Pestana Vintago Porto is a refreshing alternative to a typical city hotel. Comprised of a sequence of charming old buildings classified as World Heritage and dating back to the sixteenth, seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Pestana Vintage Porto has a unique personality that is reflected in its vantage point over the river. Guests visiting the hotel can enjoy charming bedrooms with views overlooking the Douro river, as well as receiving impeccable service whilst residing in the heart of Porto's historic centre.
Situated in the heart of the Ribeira, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site, there are endless opportunities for guests to discover the city from a base at Pestana Vintage Porto. A cruise along the Douro river, which leaves the docks in front of the hotel, a trip on the historic tram to Foz – the mouth of the river, and a tour to one of the Port Wine cellars are among some the must-dos in Oporto.
