This hotel, in a great location, delivers what one might expect from a five star property However, the service, from the reception to the concierge and to the bar and restaurant staff is just a notch above that. Which prompted me to write this review.

Absolutely nothing to find fault with at this beautiful hotel. Nicest of all was one of the most genuinely enthusiastic and friendly welcomes I have ever experienced. On top of this my room was beautiful, service from everyone in the hotel was superb, and the location is fantastic. Would love to go back.

I often wonder what hotels do with all the photocopies they make of passports? By the time check-in had all the information they required, a queue has formed, and it was obvious that however charming all the staff were (and they were all lovely and helpful); a wait was inevitable, simply to stay and spend money there. The room was... More

We chose to have a quieter room at the back, overlooking the garden, a small open area and some apartments not a bad view at all. It was very quiet, the room was large and beautifully decorated, the bed comfortable, great bathroom with the best shower ever. Everything was well maintained and very clean. We ate in the bar one...

Great location facing the main square in Porto. Right across the street from the train station & metro. Close to great restaurants and easy walking to the river. The room itself was beautiful. We were upgraded to a suite without asking. The bathrooms were gorgeous and the tub was huge. Of course it was spotless, the bed was comfy, and... More

Our spacious and well equipped third floor room overlooked the busy square and the double glazing could not blot out the constant traffic or the clock bells every 15 minutes. But the staff were very friendly, even if check-in was somewhat inefficient, taking nearly half an hour. Breakfast was good but rather expensive at 22 euros.

I liked this hotel very much. It's in a great location, right at the top end of Praca Liberdade and we had a lovely view over the square. It's comfortable and well decorated, as you would expect, but the thing that stood out was the friendliness of the staff. Check in was a pleasure and every staff member we met... More

It was a pleasant stay, with top services. The Concierge was extremely helpful, with excellent recommendation for restaurants. Its location is central. It is right next to the train station and close to the sightseeing bus terminals. There are also a few tour places within walking distance. Even to the Riveria, it took us 20 minutes to walk down.

Rooms are excellent. Spacious and with modern features. Road noise can be heard. We were on Level 3 Breakfast: On both mornings had to queue for about 15mins to be seated and then had to wait 20mins for a coffee. I did ask for coffee but was told to sit down and wait. When we eventually got into the Breakfast... More

The Intercontinental Porto is a classically beautiful hotel in a perfect location in the heart of the city. It's next door to the Estacao de S.
