From check-in to check-out an excellent experience. Beautiful room, wonderful service. Use the concierge. They are extremely knowledgeable of Porto and surrounding areas. The room service is prompt and the food was very good. Our package included breakfast which offered more then I expected.

The building is an old palace that has been entirely modernized while still retaining old world charm. We stayed on the third floor in the Executive Room, which was a large room with a king bed and a very large bath. The only shortcoming was that our room fronted on to the square. Yes, the view was great but the... More

Had five nights at this beautiful hotel. It was in a great location and very easy to get everywhere. All the staff are a credit to the hotel from the cleaners-who are amazing our room was spotless-up to the way the concierge and reception staff always looked after us and helped ordering taxis, as we were travelling with my elderly...

We normally stay in air bnb's or boutique hotels but this time fancied something a bit more traditional with service. The hotel is perfectly located, the service and the attention to detail are brilliant. We stayed in a duplex room which was very nice and the cleaning services very good. All I would say is that whilst the decor of... More

We went to Porto with modest expectations and we loved the experience. The concierge arranged for us to do a Douro valley tour where the scenery was spectacular and the winery visits exquisite. They also arranged an excellent city tour to see the sites in Porto which we highly recommend. The staff recommended excellent restaurants and could not have been... More

Loved Porto and location of the hotel - easy to walk to all sites around the city. We were upgraded to a duplex suite - the room was comfortable, but dark, no view. The service was excellent, breakfast buffet is outstanding make sure it is part of your package.

Upon arrival, just finding someone to valet our car should have been a foreboding sign that service would be at a snail's pace if you could find someone. Check-in was no better as there was only 1 person at the reception counter and a couple were asking all manners of questions about where to visit... After what seemed like an... More

InterContinental Porto is a beautifully renovated building. Centrally located. One half block from the train station, on the central square and a few blocks to the river. We arrived by train from Lisbon and walked across the street to the hotel and checked in. Most of the restaurants we wanted to dine at were located in that part of the... More
