From the comfort of your room, watch the boats slide back and forth on the Douro in historical Ribeira district. Note that the Pestana Vintage Porto is the only hotel in town to offer this stunning view. The hotel, among several historical colourful buildings - typical of Portuguese architecture - was inaugurated in the 2000s. It was renovated by Lisboan designer Cristina Matos and now has a "vintage" look.
Discover the hotel, building after building. Inside, all 103 rooms and suites are decorated in 1950s style. The decorator mixed antiques and custom-made furniture. The only room on the ground floor combines a gallery of portraits, design accessories, and cut stone walls, while other smaller rooms are cosy and charming.
Come for breakfast at the Rib Beef & Wine restaurant where you may also have lunch and dinner. And should you choose to go for a cruise down the Douro, the pier is right out front.
