I had been advised by my tour guide who was born and reared in Porto that the Intercontinental was the best hotel in Porto. I would certainly agree. With a great location you are in the heart of the city beside all the rail and bus links. Check in was really smooth, the rooms are lovely, ours was a deluxe... More

The Intercontinental in Porto is an exceptional hotel in a perfect position to view all the sites in Porto. Upon arrival the hotel staff make you feel very special and the service was superb from checking in luggage to reservation desk. We had booked three nights in a de-lux room and was not disappointed. The hotel was originally a palace... More

My husband and I arrived at this hotel after flights from Marrakech-Lisbon and Lisbon-Porto, during which my luggage had been lost. I had a few items in a back pack and an "essentials" pack from the airline. The moment we arrived at reception the staff were amazing, they took control of searching for my luggage and promised me an update... More

The guys at the bar downstairs know their job very well and the drinks selection is very decent (the prices are quire high though even for... More

This was a gorgeous hotel in a great location on the main square in Porto. We had a wonderful view from our balcony of the entire square. Breakfast was wonderful. My main complaint would have to be the lighting in the room. The bathroom was so dark that it was actually difficult to see myself in the mirror to put... More

Obviously, you expect an InterContinental to be "tops" and this one is no exception. Conveniently located just around the corner from the Sao Bento subway station. I cannot comment on the "value" since I was using my one free night per year benefit from my IHG credit card. The concierges were extremely helpful with any questions. Rooms were unbelieveable!

Having spent some time in northern Portugal I decided to treat myself to a one night stay at the InterContinental Porto to catch an early flight home from Porto airport. It is simply a wonderful hotel. The rooms are exquisitely decorated and no expense has been spared. My room was luxurious and spacious. Make sure that you have the very... More

This hotel is situated close to all of the historical attractions in Porto, but is somehow not noisy. The rooms are spacious, clean and somewhat luxurious. Our bathroom had both a shower and a tub, and all of the extras were there (good hair dryer, nice TV, toiletries, bath robes, etc.). The service we got from front desk and the... More
