4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This would be a five star review but for one problem: the rooms are dark. I mean dark, like at midnight during a lunar eclipse. Too bad, because this is otherwise a great place with all you would expect in a luxury establishment: beautiful public space, lovely rooms -- you can see them during the day - a central location...

Lovely hotel, no doubt. Had a great room with lots of space and considering the city location, it was surprisingly quiet. Location of hotel is unbeatable right in the center of town with all shops and attractions in walking distance. Had nice afternoon teas in the bar, which comes fully recommended. Breakfast was slightly disappointing, with certain attention to detail... More

Such an amazing and charming hotel! I loved walking out the front doors and being in the hustle and bustle of the city center - everything was walking distance! The hotel rooms were amazing and comfortable and service was excellent - especially since we reached post midnight and couldn't speak the language.

We packed a fleeting 26 hour visit to Porto into our itinerary recently and loved every minute of our stay at the Intercontinental Hotel, Palacio das Cardosas. As we arrived before our room was ready we headed out to the easily accessible tourist attractions, the focal point being a picturesque walk across the Duoro to take a gondola ride down... More

Have stayed here on business several times & have never found fault - until now! Room 200-avoid unless an exhibitionist! Lovely room but bathroom has floor to ceiling window with just a semi sheer curtain. Hence at night with lights on anyone outside has a clear view into the bathroom! Bizarre feature especially as loo is right next to the... More

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.
