Located on the bank of the gorgeous Douro River, Pestana Douro Riverside Urban Resort is the ideal hotel for your getaway in Porto. Relaxation is at the heart of this hotel – set in a former soap and candle factory, the hotel’s concept draws inspiration from aromatherapy to create an invigorating atmosphere. Each floor is dedicated to the scent and colour of a flower once used to create floral soaps at the factory; lavender, jasmine, orange blossom, rose, cherry blossom, almond blossom, geranium and lily. The hotel also features an infinity pool with a poolside bar, a heated indoor pool, a gym, spa, restaurant and bar.

The hotel is situated just 2.5 miles from the historic centre of Porto, where you can explore the rich local cuisine, culture and its history. Attend a port wine tasting in the famous Port Wine Cellars located across the river in Vila Nova de Gaia, just four miles away, or enjoy a specialty coffee at the iconic Café A Brasileira, which is three miles away. Take in the incredible sights at the Palácio da Bolsa or Clérigos Tower, both located three miles away, or surround yourself in local culture at the Museu de Serralves, 5.5 miles away, and Casa da Música, seven miles away. Campanhã train station is just over a mile away from the hotel, making it incredibly easy for you to get around and explore Porto. Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport is located 13 miles away.

The hotel rooms span eight flower-themed floors, featuring floral artwork that incorporates refreshing elements of nature into the sleek, contemporary décor. Many of the rooms feature a view overlooking the Douro River from large floor-to-ceiling windows, alongside a terrace or balcony from which you can enjoy the view. All rooms are equipped with a 49-inch flat-screen TV, safe, minibar, air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities.
