Stayed here for 1 night in August and couldn't be happier. Just about everything was perfect - location, architecture, interiors, ambiance; valet, reception, concierge, check-out; room, bed, bathroom.... You name it, it was amazing! The guys at the bar downstairs know their job very well and the drinks selection is very decent (the prices are quire high though even for... More

This was a gorgeous hotel in a great location on the main square in Porto. We had a wonderful view from our balcony of the entire square. Breakfast was wonderful. My main complaint would have to be the lighting in the room. The bathroom was so dark that it was actually difficult to see myself in the mirror to put... More

Obviously, you expect an InterContinental to be "tops" and this one is no exception. Conveniently located just around the corner from the Sao Bento subway station. I cannot comment on the "value" since I was using my one free night per year benefit from my IHG credit card. The concierges were extremely helpful with any questions. Rooms were unbelieveable!

This is really a nice hotel, like most of the inter continental hotels. Actually, it is one of the few chain hotels in Porto. Very good service, very classy rooms and a helpful service. is waiting for you. Strongly recommended...

Having spent some time in northern Portugal I decided to treat myself to a one night stay at the InterContinental Porto to catch an early flight home from Porto airport. It is simply a wonderful hotel. The rooms are exquisitely decorated and no expense has been spared. My room was luxurious and spacious. Make sure that you have the very... More

This hotel is situated close to all of the historical attractions in Porto, but is somehow not noisy. The rooms are spacious, clean and somewhat luxurious. Our bathroom had both a shower and a tub, and all of the extras were there (good hair dryer, nice TV, toiletries, bath robes, etc.). The service we got from front desk and the... More

We chose this property for its central location (across the street from Sao Bento train station) as we were checking in late from our train ride from Santiago de Compostela/Vigo, Spain. The hotel's staff was outstanding! Extremely courteous, helpful and most professional. In our opinion this is a 5 star hotel. The amenities are excellent and within walking distance to... More

We chose this hotel partly because of its Tripadvisor rating and partly for its location. Right on the central square of the old city, it's perfectly placed for sightseeing and we walked pretty much everywhere during our 4-day stay. We had a one-bedroom suite which was traditionally decorated and comfortable. Not a great view - we probably should have asked... More

Pros: We stayed here for one night in August 2014. The location of the hotel is great for walking to shopping and restaurants. We actually took a cab to get to the water front, but I understand that it is a very short walk. Breakfast was beautiful and a full spread. We walked around the square and were not able... More

We arrived at approximately 3:45 PM on a Thursday afternoon and were invited to seat at the check-in tables to check in. The process itself was fast and efficient. However after the paperwork was completed, we were told the room was not ready and that we would need to wait for a few minutes. The hotel offered complimentary glass of... More
