By reading the reviews and the descriptions we had really high expectations for this hotel. The location is perfect on the beautiful Avenida dos Aliados and the building itself, on the outside, is an outstanding example of an 18th century Grand Palace. We were very well cared for upon arrival, check in was smooth in the huge modern hall and,... More

We booked into a junior suite (with view) to kick off our road trip through Portugal. It was an excellent choice: the room was spacious and offered great view over the square Liberdade. But best was the ideal location in the heart of the city. Concierge service was also very good. For us this hotel offered an ideal start to... More

This is, "The place," to stay. Beautiful well managed hotel in a perfect location. What is not to like?!! We were treated like welcomed guests by a highly regarded staff from check in to check out. Hotel is nicely appointed with first class amenities and extremely comfortable beds. We love the Intercontinental and highly recommend this one in Porto.

This hotel is a real gem right in the centre of Porto. All the staff are extremely helpful. If you need anything then Rogerio Martins and the rest of the concierge desk are incredibly attentive and helpful. They made organising our trip effortless. I would highly recommend this hotel.

My friend and I have been to Porto for a Kamikaze trip and the intercontinental has been a fantastic choice because of the super central location, close to the major attractions, the service and the beauty of the palace. The rooms are very comfortable and welcoming. Most of all we have to be very thankful for the help of Gonçalo... More

Our room was facing the square and it is nice that you can open the window as well. The concierge's Rogerio was very helpful and friendly too. The location... More

Everything about this hotel makes it stand out from other intercontinentals. The location is fantastic within walking distance of all the key areas of Porto and if you don't want to walk the hop on hop off buses stop in the square just outside. The reception process is fab, very personal with seating at desks. Concierge is great and gave... More
