The newest hotel to open in Porto is the Pestana Porto A Brasileira Hotel. The conversion of the historic building to a 5-star hotel included a full restoration of the architectural features of the original building. The hotel is located a short 10 minute walk from the Douro River and Ribeira Square, near the Teatro Sá da Bandeira, São Bento train station, Livraria Lello and Café Majestic.
The name of the new hotel, inaugurated on March 23, 2018, pays homage to one of Porto’s most iconic cafes – A Brasileria Cafe – which will be back in its original layout in the historic building. The Cafe was recognized for serving the best coffee in Porto in the early 1900s.
The hotel’s 89 rooms and suites are equipped with air conditioning, free WiFi, USB charger, hair dryer, LCD TV, minibar and room safe. Rooms and suites range in size from 23 m2 to 37 m2, and connecting rooms can be requested (Deluxe Grand View+ Deluxe Executive Grand View can connect). Rooms have a maximum capacity of 3, and the Master Suite can accommodate up to 4 adults.
In addition to A Brasileira Cafe, the hotel also has a restaurant that offers traditional Portuguese cuisine from the highly acclaimed chef Rui Martins, a bar, gym, and meeting rooms.
