One of the best hotels we have stayed at anywhere in Europe. From the concierge and reception desk staff to the housekeeping services, this hotel is wonderful from every aspect. The one thing we would recommend changing is adding more light in the bathroom and rooms. When we did mention it was a bit dark for our taste, the porter... More

When in Europe I always spend so little time in my room as there is so much to see. I honestly could have spent all my time in my room just relaxing. The room was very comfortable and spacious. The hotel is lovely. Location is perfect-just a two minute walk from the train station and within walking distance to all... More

This is a gorgeous hotel in the best location in Porto. The WiFi here was the fastest I tested in Portugal at 36MBPS. But we needed to ask for a router free of charge to receive it in our room. The garden view room is better since it's quiet. The breakfasts are tops with a great selection. The rooms are... More

The intercontinental group is well known for its excellence in high end hotel accommodation. The Porto Hotel is a king amongst kings.

The location could not be more central, could not be more perfect - within walking distance of the Port, the main sites including Cathedral and the main market. The hotel itself is elegant by any standard with rooms which must have been either recently renovated or simply extremely well kept. Dining room was wonderful as was the bar. But what... More

This hotel is outstanding!!!! The rooms are terrific and the service is impeccable. The concierge staff was incredibly helpful and went out of their way to recommend restaurants for us. The location is the best in town. It's a wonderful place with lots of things nearby.

After our visit to Lisbon we went north to Oporto. It is also a very nice city, although smaller then Lisbon, but also with tons of charm. Regarding our hotel it is very well located and you can do the historical part of the city all by foot. The rooms are very nice and the hospitality great. Defenetly will come... More

Stayed here for three nights in September 14. This is with doubt the best city hotel that I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. Location is perfect, on the main square which was great for people watching especially when sitting outside by the square. Whilst located in a very busy part of the city our room was very... More
