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!

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 !!! Lili & Ricardo

A city-centre hotel with all important sights in walking-distance. Easily reachable by Metro. I especially loved the interior of the hotel. All held in very dark colors with a lot of copper highlights. Super nice wellness area with indoor pool, a little sauna and a very well equipped 24/7 gym area. Unfortunately the wellness area fits only around 10 people as there are no more daybeds available. But if you catch one it's great. Amazing breakfast with everything that you could wish for. Great execution of covid-19 measures. TV Remote in plastic foil and you were given masks and a sanitizer at check-in. Great WIFI. Comfortable rooms with a good bed, a very nice bathroom, AC and safe and a cool mirror that was a TV at the same time. Super stylish. Only downside, very little space for clothing and only some hangers available. All in all a very expensive choice but definitely worth it if you are in to splurge a little :-)
