We stayed on the 3rd floor which has no artwork and brown and white walls. The room feels a bit stuffy, with poor air circulation. The bathroom is a good size, however the hot water runs out while you are showering, so you have to keep turning the knob to the hot, bring careful not to burn yourself. The location... More

The hotel combine Old World elegance with modern comfort and amenities. It is conveniently situated at the very center of the city, at an easy walking distance from all the main tourists attractions. The breakfast buffet offers a variety of choices, all very good. The service staff is impeccable. Where else could you sleep in a room where the Emperor... More

The hotel: the common rooms downstairs are lovely. It's the photos thereof which made us choose the hotel. The bedrooms, although very clean and tidy, are quite frankly, outdated. Room on first floor was in dire need of some TLC. Breakfast was lovely, breakfast room is gorgeous. Staff were very friendly, especially housekeeping. As for driving: We drove in using... More

Avoid this hotel if driving, very hard to find among very busy streets, GPS doesn't account for the one-way street it's on, and bizarrely, to reach hotel front door you have to thread through a crowded pedestrian mall. Then the rather surly staff tells you that you need to drive three blocks to park in a garage. Our room was... More

I went there for the Brunch! The ground floor rooms are magnificient, beautiful and luxurious. The rooms where the brunch is served has high ceilings and beautiful light. The staff is very nice. The brunch is good, with cold and hot dishes, an upgrade of breakfast. Fruit juices and water are included in the 15€ price. There is a table... More

As with all these reviews, it really just depends on what your needs our. We were only going to be in Porto for about 24 hours, so this worked really well for our family. We got a great rate and it's in a great location with very good staff. Other than that it is very average accomodations. The beds are... More

We were driving into Porto to meet a small tour pick up in front of the Grand Hotel where we were staying that night. Although we had directions, when we "got lost" and called the hotel, there was a complete lack of communication. Finally the tour guide got our location, called a taxi whom we then followed to the hotel.... More

It all started so well. The receptionist was friendly - telling us we could leave our car in the public car park as they had a deal which meant we would only pay 6 euros per night. Imagine our horrow when we left to be told by another receptionist that they didn't have a deal with this one at all.... More

We stayed for 2 nights at Grande Hotel do Porto, and we considered a good experience, altough our room choice was small (but comfortable). The luxurious environment especially on the ground 0 floor, lecture rooms, restaurants are good reasons to choose this hotel. Great experience.
