We had a driver for half a day, Paolo, who matter-of-factly said this has become the best hotel in Porto. Perhaps he was hoping for more business from the Palacio das Cardosas concierge, who arranged for our city tour. But we would be surprised if Paolo was wrong. We loved this hotel in the very center of Porto. It looks... More

Great hotel with a service beyond the normal. You feels in good hands from entering the hotel and till the stay has ended. Personal were very helpful and made sure that we got an excellent stay in Porto in connection with a football match we should see.

In a nutshell - I loved it! Wish I could've stayed more than just two nights. Was given an absolutely lovely room - it was very large, gorgeous, elegant, really something special. The common areas were also beautiful, starting from the moment you walk through the door. The doormen were friendly and helpful, as were all the staff, including the... More

Having the executive room with the amazing view of the square I wanted to keep the curtains open at all times! The room itself was big (320+ sq ft), had a comfortable bed, and a nice bathroom with a shower and a bath. There's a very classy bar on the first floor and a great restaurant - though expensive by...

Very well located hotel in the middle of the city centre. Proper luxury rooms with view on the square. Reception weirdly placed. Very friendly and professional staff. Needs the X differentiating factor to get these five bubbles. Would recommend especially on business trips.
