We stayed here before and after a Douro River cruise. The place is totally immaculate from design, decor, public spaces, rooms, baths, linens. The staff is amazing, totally solicitous and professional. We loved the bar which serves a great light menu, reasonably prices food and wine. The hotel is located at ground zero in Porto...the celebrated tile murals in the... More

I mean really, there isn't much I can add to the review of this hotel that hasn't already been stated. Excellent location, helpful staff, beautiful room, comfortable beds, large bathrooms. I will absolutely be staying here again on my next trip to Porto. Simply one of the best hotels I've stayed at recently. Kudos to the staff!

Having travelled through most of Europe for work and leisure for the past decade, I can safely say that this is Europe's best hotel. The staff are multi-lingual, professional and very friendly. The rooms are spacious, clean and quiet. The bar and restaurant are 5 star dining. The breakfasts are amazing. The hotel's location within Porto cannot be faulted. Finally,... More

Spent ages searching for the best place to stay in Porto and were very pleased that we had decided on the Intercontinental. Excellent location for exploring the city. Good sized rooms with comfortable bed and excellent bathroom. Ultimate luxury of being able to have clean sheets every day. Breakfasts were fine but could have been even better.

The rooms where lovely and clean, the bed was comfortable, and the people were extremely helpful and friendly. It is in a great location as well. The one issue we had was with the air-conditioning. It didn't work that well so at night we got a bit hot. Other than that, it was a great place to stay!

Warm, friendly and most welcoming - - We arrived at the hotel and check in went smoothly. Just beautiful marble all around, glass chandeliers, winding stairway etc. Mostly, we arrived there about 7:30am and they were so gracious they let us into our room early since we had been up for 24 hours. What a room! It was a large... More
