No complaints at all, only thanks for a comfortable and luxurious stay in a great hotel in a good location. Staff were good. Service was good. Food and drink were good, and it was always a pleasure to come back after a hot tourist day or good evening out. Top marks all round.

Amazing hotel and very friendly staffs. The location is great too, walking distance from all the best tourist attractions. Breakfast is the ice on the cake with a amazing variety of food and fresh juices. Concierge service for 24 hours. Highly recommend !

We would love to return. The only... More

Beautiful Hotel on the Square in Porto! I would rather be by the square than down on the river. The area around the river was too packed with vendors and people. The room was updated and very clean. Service was excellent. This was the most expensive hotel we stayed in Portugal but was well worth it.

We stayed at this hotel a fortnight ago, having been there twice previously. Our reason for returning is that the hotel is very comfortably furnished and well located in the centre of the town. It is also just a couple of minutes walk from Sao Bento Station, which is convenient if you want to visit some of the interesting places... More

We were fortunate to stay here for 3 nights during our stay in Porto. A beautiful hotel, with very helpful, friendly staff. The hotel is centrally located, within walking distance of all the main attractions. Our room had French windows, with a balcony which overlooked City Hall, in fact we could see in all directions when we looked out. The... More

Was surprised by porto. One of the best cities. And also surprised by the hotel. Very friendly. The check in staff convinced us to get ambassador status with intercontinental. From there on it was beautiful.

This is a lovely luxury hotel on the best square in Porto, 10 minutes walk downhill to the river (get a cab back!) and 5 minutes walk to the main bars area. The rooms are fine with a great choice of movies and TV stations in English and they have bathrooms with separate showers and WCs. The safe deposit box... More

This is first class hotel with decor and service to match. Its is in a recently renovated historic building and dominates the bottom of the main square in Porto. The Lobby is very impressive with gorgeous marble floors and impressive chandeliers. Our room was spacious, very well furnished and maintained. Staff were very professional and service was as one would... More
