Beautiful disigned new hotel. Luxurious rooms with elegant atmosphere. A real pleasure to stay here for a few night in Porto. Nicely priced for a quality room. Location is oké to walk to all the interesting spots in the old town. For 5 or 6 euro you can take a taxi back to the hotel if you don't like walking uphill. There's a smal nice looking indoor pool with sauna to fresh up. I just do not understand why the rooms lack closets, you can not unpack your suitcase. Compliments for the beautiful hotel decoration. The courtyard has nice trendy furniture to sit for a cold beer.

Nice hotel in the city centre of Porto´s downtown. Excellent location for tourists, not so good if you're on a business trip. I stayed during covid-19 restrictions and the hotel was not running at his maximum. nevertheless, I had a good experience. Took the Superior deluxe room with a jacuzzi on the balcony. The room seems a lot bigger in the hotel photos than it actually is. Would prefer a little more space inside but it´s ok. Liked the decoration and comfort. The big rounded mirror near the bed has an excellent TV inside and it´s really amazing how it works so well as a mirror and as a TV. The weather was not great, very cloudy and rainy, but that did not prevent me to use the jacuzzi when I wanted. 37,5 degrees during the 24h of the day. Breakfast was some kind limited due to Covid safety measures. Didn´t use the swimming pool, garden or gym but they look quite good. Parking is very easy to access although it can get full very quickly (i should say 15 to 20 cars max.). finally, the staff was very friendly (reception, breakfast and dinner staff).
On the negative side, I should point to the fact that Room Service was not available. I really do not see a good reason for that since the hotel has breakfast and restaurant service, why not just send a person to deliver it?

This hotel is incredibly beautiful, well located (near the subway station Bolhão), clean and safe. Plus, the staff is wonderful, everyone is so kind and helpful ! ​Thank you Catarina and Bruno from the reception for your amazing service, you really have illuminated our stay ! Thank you also to Sarah the therapist for the Detox massage, it was perfect (helps a lot for people having heavy legs issues during summer, has I do.)

For those who want to read more about our stay :

As you may agree, the first night you spend in a foreign city is the one that will give the tone for the rest of the holidays. Therefore, for our first night in Porto we wanted to find the perfect hotel to start our romantic trip...and we found it !!

We were staying in room 410 and couldn't belive our eyes ! The big with bed, the marble floor in the bathroom and the size of the shower, the large terrace and the hot jacuzzi, everything was stupendous. The bed was so comfortable, we spend the most relaxing first night here (also, the street is so calm that I didn't heared any noise at night).

Since I am very picky regarding the cleanliness of the room I'm sleeping in, I can tell you that this room is very clean. The immaculate white sheets smell good, same goes with the toilets and the shower, the jacuzzi water is clear and the floor doesn't have any dust.

The breakfast was very rich : a buffet offering a large selection of foods and drinks. I personally appreciated a lot the little pastries and the fruits. And the fact that the portions were so small was great because it allowed me to taste a bit of everything without feeling sick.

Finally, the pool, sauna and fitness at the level -1 were amazing ! Such wide spaces, beautiful decoration and again, everything is so clean !
The gym equipment is very complete with : a weight bench, dumbells, a machine for upper body workouts, mats, a bike and a treadmill!

To put it in a nutshell, we were amazed and we are definitely coming back! Thanks a lot BessaHotel Baixa !!!

Bessa Hotel Baxia is a conveniently located hotel to visit Porto, close to the Bolhao train station and a short walk from the city center.
The hotel has a small indoor swimming pool and a small gym well equipped.
The breakfast buffet is plentiful and varied, fruits are fresh and delicious. There is a possibility to dine in the hotel and the prices are reasonable (same as other restaurants in the city center).
We had a suite for 2 adults and a child, it was spacious, albeit not much closet space.
We would definitely book it again if we would come back to Porto.

We were very disappointed to find out upon arrival that the hotel pool and spa were out of service since it was the leading reason we chose this specific hotel. After having discussed with other guests, it was known to us that the pool and spa had been closed for two weeks. Since the hotel failed to inform us before the moment of check-in, we did not have time to make other accommodations. The hotel failed to be transparent and it affected the quality of our vacation.

Furthermore, after spending a full night, without sleep, dealing with a couple in the room next to us who had no respect for those who surrounded them, the hotel refused to refund us for the inconvenience. Although we understand that the hotel is not directly responsible for the action of other guests, it is our belief that they are, in fact, responsible for what happens on their premises.

The room and the breakfast staff were very nice, but due to the lack of honesty and compliance on part of the hotel, we cannot in good faith recommend this hotel to other travelers.

Dear Yanisme, First of all, we would like to thank you for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Our customers' opinions allow us to correct any possible flaws in our service and customer care. Due to an external issue outside of the hotel's control, we had to close our swimming pool, and the repair took longer than expected. Fortunately, we are happy to inform you that our swimming pool has now reopened! Thank you for your understanding, and we hope to welcome you soon at BessaHotel Baixa. Best regards, General Manager

Wonderful hotel, very good facilities and general atmosphere.
Indoor pool was very pleasant, and so was the sauna. Staff were very welcoming and our needs were met for the entire duration of our stay.
Location is also incredible, you are essentially 5 minutes away from the tourist center of Porto, and yet, you are in a very calm street, away from the masses, making this a very calm environment where we slept very well.
Overall, highly recommended and we will return again.

This hotel went above my expectations! The hotel is like a boutique hotel, 4 floors and around 12 rooms per floor. The moment we walked into the hotel we were greeted kindly. The room itself was one of the nicest hotel rooms I have stayed in. The bathroom looked like royalty but modern comfy beds and the best was outdoor jacuzzi on the balcony of the room with view of the city (definitely choose the jacuzzi room option). Breakfast was also wonderful! The hotels location was perfect too, it was about 2 blocks from the bolhao market and shopping area and a close walk to all the attractions. Hotel also has underground self parking for a cost. Loved this hotel it made our Porto experience amazing!! Would definitely come back.

The hotel is really amazing! It is very luxurious and the rooms and hotel are really beautiful. The breakfast is great and fresh and there is a lot of choice. The location is perfect as well, two streets away from the main shopping street and the historic spots are on walking distance. Not alone to mention the pool, so beautiful and relaxing. We love this hotel and would definitely go again!

We really loved the hotel, the staff are all amazing and very welcoming, location wise it was about a 20-25 minute walk to the cathedral but there is a lovely square 10 minute walk away with loads of lovely restaurants. We managed to fit a day in using the pool and sauna which was so nice and relaxing. My only negative experience was the building works going on next door which woke us up early on our last day.
