This hotel is perfectly located for exploring Porto. It is a fairly easy walk to everywhere, although it may be harder coming back with some of the hills. We had a room right on the front looking up the Avenue dos Aliados. It was a little noisy in the early evening but fine overnight. Great bathroom with a separate walk... More

My husband and I stayed here for a could of days in March. The hotel is located on the main square in Porto so it is central to most of what you want to get to. We had a beautiful room on the second floor with balconies overlooking the square. I was a little concerned about the noise but the... More

The location is good being right in front of town hall and across from the unique train station with its blue tiles depicting the history of Portugal. The hope on/hope... More

We stayed in the Intercontinental when we arrived back in Porto by train to the Sao Bento train station. It is just steps away and right on the main square so the location could hardly be better. At first, it is what you would expect from a hotel of this callibre - stylish lobby and a friendly and courteous welcome.... More

One can not complain about anything!! We were shown to a great room overlooking the street and old city centre. For all the questions we had, they were most helpful. We were able to see all the interesting places we wanted to and more. The breakfasts were great.

We love staying in this hotel. Firstly, decoration is a bit different from other Intercontinental Hotel. It maintains the high quality but in a stylish, modern and contemporary way. We stayed on the Executive floor. Rooms are spacious and facing the square. Not much noise at night and we were able to have good sleep. Staff were friendly, nice and... More

It was a very special birthday and they pulled out all the stops! Upgraded room with view over the square, birthday cake delivered to room, free bottle of wine with dinner - what more could you ask for?

First off, this is a beautiful hotel overlooking a gorgeous square. We had an Executive Twin room and it was quite spacious. Great TV with many English-speaking stations; a full-sized ironing board and iron in the closet; and, double-sized twin beds. The hotel had a beautiful bar area. Also, the breakfast room was quite lovely and the buffet breakfast had... More
