A lovely former palace converted into a hotel. Just a mile or so up the Duoro River with a lovely pool and almost sea side feel. It's a nice riverside walk (45mins) into the town centre but the taxis are cheap (6E) or there is a regular bus service for 1.85E. Breakfast buffet is huge and staff are helpful and... More

This hotel deserves every star of its five-star rating. The staff are so friendly, kind, thoughtful and well trained to offer service and support. Our room was beautiful with every conceivable convenience. All we know is that our car was parked securely somewhere below the hotel, as it was whisked away by the efficient men at the door, who unloaded... More

I have stayed in this hotel on business many times over the last few years. It is a nice hotel, with spacious rooms, a very nice gym and an above average breakfast. It used to be more oriented to luxury, lately I would say it has become quite standard. Nothing to complain about, especially if you get a good corporate... More

Excellent hotel with large rooms and very attentive and professional staff. The lounge on the 19th floor offers great views over the Porto suburbs but if you're expecting to look over the old town you will be disappointed. The only thing that lets the hotel down is the location which is, apparently in a very nice part of town, but... More

This is a 5 star hotel well located, at walking distance from the subway in a trendy area of Porto. Regarding the hotel itself there is not much to say, since, in general, it fulfills the requirements of an hotel of this category. What surprised me most is that one have to pay to access to a Wi-fi connection. Today,... More

Excellent quality hotel, with very professional staff, spacious rooms and spa with no restrictions for age visits (good for children). I don't know if it was about Portugal, but everywhere we went the service was absolutely excellent, friendly and people genuinely paid attention and always try to help. The terrace on the 19th floor had a great view and service,... More

If this is your first trip into Porto, the Palacio is a good choice for a few nights, but it quite a walk from the historic old town sites or decent restaurants. We tired the ones attached to the property (pass these by) and the hotel itself only serves breakfast unless it is a function lunch buffet. The breakfast buffet... More

I stayed four nights as part of a Conference held at the hotel. Rooms are way larger than average, continental breakfast. Did not use fitness and Spa - but rather went out for sightseeing and to appreciate Portuguese seafood options by the river. A little far from the metro, but still at a walking distance. Recommended for business trips.
