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.

But the staff was just outstanding, polished, well-trained, well-mannered staff that greet you warmly from the moment one. Just to give a few names: (1) Juana, at the reception... More

We very much enjoyed staying at this centrally located 5 star hotel which had everything that we were hoping for. Although the hotel is centrally located we did not have any issues concerning noise.

I loved Porto and the Intercontinental was the starting point for this experience. The hotel is walking distance to historic sites, restaurants, shopping, wine tasting rooms. The concierge service with great restaurant recommendations and they readily volunteer to make the reservations for you. The room is gorgeous and still comfortable and had a great view of the square.

Everything one would expect from a 5 star establishment! Comfort and plush surroundings; immaculate and professional service. Helpful concierge... We found the breakfast choice to be rather limited for such an establishment. The buffet lay-out is not very conducive to a smooth and quick flow. The street people sleeping on the pavement outside one of the large windows, a daily... More
