This classy place is centrally located in Porto and I really enjoyed staying there. It has old fashioned values and tradition and even the Dalai Lama has stayed there, as evidenced in the hall of fame. Room was small but to a high standard, and great value for money. Breakfast in the opulent dining room was also nice.

It has a beautiful vintage decor, but the furniture is new with old style...the rooms are modern and new, not big, but very confortable! The staff is so gentle and nice... More

I was lucky to visit Porto twice/2008 and 2014/ and both times I stayed here, in Grande hotel do Porto! It is a place where you can feel how centuries go through the amazing corridors and rooms and I think there's no place in Porto like that! Grandeur and luxury of the past tangle with the spirit of everlasting Portuguese... More

We stayed at this lovely Hotel in the middle of Porto perfectly situated to discover the town. Located in a pedestrian area with an ancient by nice decor. Obviously not all rooms have been renovated. We stayed at the first floor and the room was kind of old fashioned yet clean. Our friends stayed in a similar size room at... More

I loved staying at the Grande Hotel do Porto, it's a very charming hotel right in the heart of the city. Helpfull staff, good cleaning and very good breakfast, with a little bit of everything. Small bedroom but cosy. The public rooms are adorable and really invite you to spend some time there, having tea or reading a book.
