Pestana Douro Riverside, member of Preferred Hotels & Resorts, is located on the right bank of the Douro River, 10 minutes away from Porto city center. A fascinating setting for your stay!

It offers a breathtaking view of the Douro river, ideal for individual or family stays. In addition to its comfortable rooms and suites, it also features a grill restaurant, a rooftop with bar and infinity pool, a gym ,massage rooms and indoor pool.

It is also an excellent choice for meetings, with several conference rooms, and a huge hall adaptable to large events.

The Pestana Douro Riverside is located in the premises of a former soap and candle factory. The large brick chimney that stands in front of the reception is a visible reminder of its history. The hotel thus combines the most modern technology with the heritage of a historic factory.

Inspired by the aromas of floral soaps once produced here, each floor is dedicated to the scent and color of the flowers that identifies it: lavender, jasmine, orange blossom, rose, cherry blossom, chamomile, geranium and lily. All rooms are equipped with wi-fi, USB inputs, air conditioning, among other facilities.

Most rooms and suites have a balcony overlooking the Douro. The décor is inspired by the history of the location, a former factory of aromatic soaps, with botanical and floral references. Rooms are equipped with LCD TV, free Wi-Fi and modern bathrooms, ensuring a comfortable and contemporary atmosphere.

The Congress Center includes 8 meeting rooms, 5 of which are illuminated by natural light overlooking the Douro River and 3 rooms are interior. It has a total event area (indoor and outdoor) of 2500 sq. meters.

The Grill Restaurant takes advantage of the proximity to the river and the beautiful landscape to enhance the richness of flavors and the balance of ingredients. The service is complemented by a rooftop bar and an all-day dining gastro bar.


Pestana Douro Riverside is located next to the Pestana Palácio do Freixo, just 4 km from Porto's historic center, 21 km from Francisco Sá Carneiro Airport and 2km from Campanhã train station, providing quick and easy access to and from the Hotel. Opposite the hotel, there are 7km-long walkways that follow the course of the Douro River, where you can find gardens, cycling paths and areas to relax.

Porto is an ancient and amazing city, with historical monuments, rich gastronomy and stunning landscapes. Make the most of your stay and enjoy a port wine tasting in the famous Port Wine Cellars located across the river in Vila Nova de Gaia. The Palácio da Bolsa, Clérigos Tower, Serralves Contemporary Art Museum and Casa da Música concert hall are some of our suggestions when visiting the city. Be sure to find time for a specialty coffee from the iconic and centuries old "A Brasileira" café.


The building where the Pestana Douro Riverside is located today, results from the conversion of a historical factory in the Portuguese industrial panorama, built in 1888. The large chimney next to the reception is one of the living testimonies of this past. Through different administrations (Monteiro Santos & Companhia, Companhia Fabril do Douro, Companhia Alliança Fabril, CUF and Floral) lasting over a century, the factory produced candles, soap and vegetable oils, with an interregnum of 15 years for adaptation works.

Previously the space was used for various purposes until it was deactivated and finally adapted to this tourist project – the Pestana Douro Hotel.
