Excellent public rooms especially the wonderful lounge/library. Bedroom perfectly adequate but not of the same standard. Very good choice at breakfast. Staff friendly, but with modern hotel practices there is not much opportunity for interaction.

Grand Hotel do Porto is a beautiful hotel right in the center of town, with a long history. Great rooms, food and service. This was the third time I visited, and I would strongly recommend it to anybody visiting Porto.

I had a three night stay with Half Board as I was travelling on my own for my first visit to Porto. I was upgraded to a suite, however this was quite basic compared to the beautiful public areas. However, it was very spacious and clean. The bed was very comfortable and although the room looked over the Rua Santa... More

A friendly welcome and a fast check in. Our room was pleasant, clean and had everything we required. The hotel is a great old building and we loved the ambience. Breakfast was wonderful. Good staff and overall no complaints.

Great location and a beautiful building. Rooms a little dated but clean and spacious. Friendly staff. Interconnecting family rooms was a nice touch. Walking distance to the old town and the amazing train station with views over the river

Spent a weekend in Porto for friends wedding. Wish I'd know about this wonderful destination before. The hotel is elegant and very plushly decorated in the public areas. The main dining area is a stunning ballroom of a place complete with crystal chandeliers and a piano. It's right in the centre and access to buses and the metro system is... More

Small rooms with limited outlets...very sparse rooms..great and accommodating staff! Great location! The main lobby belies the 'reality' of the age of this majestic building..plus, seagulls are constant onlookers from the ledges outside windows...truly an up close and personal experience.

Friendly, warm and extremely reasonably priced hotel. The situation couldn't be better and a great breakfast too. The bedrooms are rather small but we just loved everything about this elegant hotel including the very friendly and helpful staff
