My partner and myself spent 5 great nights in porto and stayed here as part of a last minute package. We were really looking forward to staying in a 5 star hotel as we wanted to really relax. Overall the hotel is very nice, nothing amazing. It is certainly not 5 star though, just a nice solid business hotel. Also... More

Handsome five-star property. Much dark wood and marble, beautiful linen, and a spacious suite. Not central, but a pretty business and residential neighborhood with good restaurants and plenty of shopping.

I have had some great stays at this hotel, and this time I took the family for the first time as we picked Porto as a vacation spot. Porto Palacio was an automatic choice for me to stay at after sometime ... However, I was bit disappointed ... the hotel seems to be at stand still in time, with lots... More

We stayed at Palacio for a couple of nights with our baby boy. The room was very comfortable, spacious, and we had a great view over the villas ending at the sea side. The staff is very friendly and the almost 360 view at the top terrace and bar was beautiful! We also took advantage of the pool with the... More

I stayed recently whilst on a conference. The rooms were clean and functional but nothing special. The rooftop bar has lovely views and attentive waiters. The food there was very ropey and I had to send it back. It's a good half hour walk from the main area in Porto.

A friend booked our weekend at the Porto Palacio and it turned out to be an inspired choice. It's fabulous. We arrived early but the reception team bent over backwards to accommodate us. They apologised for keeping us waiting despite the fact that we arrived long before check in time, we were perfectly happy to wait - especially as they... More

Excellent stay! From the welcoming staff to the glass of port at check-in, to the fantastic breakfast, and the great views, loved it. Would definitely stay here again. Even got my exercise in every day walking downhill to the river, through the city and gardens, and back up hill, about 45 minutes each way without the shopping ;)
