Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Nestled in the heart of the city, InterContinental Porto - Palacio Das Cardosas is celebrated for its inviting atmosphere and prime location, with guests regularly commending the easy access to nearby attractions. The spacious and immaculate rooms also garner high praise, while the live music adds to the hotel's charm. Service at the hotel is often described as exceptional, with friendly and professional staff. However, opinions on value and amenities are mixed, with some guests finding the gym lacking and the absence of a pool notable. Additionally, while the atmosphere is generally appreciated, some visitors find the dining options unremarkable, and construction noise has been a concern for several travelers.

Classic elegant hotel, spacious with lots of light, quiet and calm. Central location, all highlights within walking distance. Stuff is friendly and willing to help with every request. Service is quick and efficient. Food ( room service) was tasty. Rooms are spacious and luxurious. There is building work in the square in front of the hotel, and one night it was quite noisy- the reception found us another room (at 10 pm)! It was a pleasure to stay.

The staff always showed their truly smile all the time that you can expect to have a great day every morning. Besides their warmth and patience, the vibe is amazing and you feel you are part of Porto already, I really enjoyed the stay and explored almost every corner of Porto!

Very good experience. The accommodation was very pleasant, and the staff were very enthusiastic. They helped to delay the check-out and also offered various discounts. It was very thoughtful. If there is a chance next time, definitely come again.

Excellent stay, exceptional client service, the concierge make the difference this time helping us with dinner reservations and sightsees suggestions. I would recommend anytime specially to IHG members to stay here. Also, another special point for this stay is the location. Literally is in the middle of everything and the metro is across the street.

Great location, great hotel. Very good shower, bed, breakfast, and bar. The staff was professional and polite. The valet was quick and consistent. This is the one of the best hotels I’ve stayed at in some time, and definitely the best Intercontinental Hotel in memory.

Great location, center of old Porto. Short walk to the river front where you will have an abundance of restaurants and bars to hang out and music fills the air. Beautiful churches are all over the area along with museums. Many restaurants all over the city.

Beautiful hotel with top tier service. Our room was lovely and the housekeeping staff was excellent, making sure we had everything we needed, extra pillows, water and turn down service. The valet was prompt and attentive even taking care of a small issue with our rental car. There is construction currently in front of the hotel but we were never bothered in our room with the sounds from outside. The location of this hotel could not be better. It is located in the perfect place just a short walk from many of the best things to see and do in Porto. We definitely recommend this as a wonderful place to stay and look forward to when we can come back and stay again.

This is one fantastic hotel. The staff are very friendly and go out of there to ensure you have a comfortable stay. Nicely located on the centre of Porto, it’s walking distance from most restaurants, bridges etc. Thoroughly recommend a stay at the Intercontinental Porto.
