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 ;)

We stayed at this business orientated hotel for 6 nights on a special offer to enjoy Porto. We had an executive room - spacious and soundproof which made for a peaceful night. Breakfast wasn"t included, but we took it even though it was expensive - good choices of dishes, breads and fruit. There is a superb roof terrace for sitting,... More

Stayed there during our family trip to Porto. Clearly a hotel geared to business meetings/events.. It is 20 mins away from the old city center (so we needed taxi rides all the time). Very good room amenities and service. Breakfast was good.

Very nice hotel in all respects - beds, room, bar, restaurants etc. Wifi included. Just note where it is in Porto, which is not close to the old centre or port area. This is not a big problem, as you can use the metro to get around, although it is about 500m away.

I'm not sure about the rest of the Hotel patrons since it looks like everyone else is wearing suits and looking painfully serious but life is pretty damn beautiful on the glorious sun deck in the clouds. Ridiculous single malt selection, giddy assortment of gin and all the accoutrement. 360 degrees of rooftop glory.
