The breakfast buffet alone is worth the visit. The quality of food was fantastic, and the service wonderful. Moreover, the customer service was excellent as they accommodated my cancelled flight at the last minute. The restaurant on the roof is a bit pretentious, but the food was good. No, this hotel is not a tourist location. No, it is not located in the center of the night life, and it is not on the beach. But that is what made it more endearing.

We stayed here for a friends wedding and also to celebrate our anniversary. We booked an Executive Suite but was upgraded on arrival to one of their top floor suites with stunning views of Porto by Carlos which was such a lovely welcome and surprise. We were also given complimentary welcome drinks at the hotels bar on the top floor and discount at the restaurant for a special meal. Complementary chocolates and rose petal display in our room also. Concierge was also attentive, helpful and welcoming throughout our stay. Our room was cleaned every day, sheets and towels refreshed. Cleaners where very polite, attentive and friendly - Thank you Breakfast was nice, lots of choice and options and again attentive staff. Only disappointment was the eggs no fried eggs well done and it was a little difficult to communicate this as many of the waiting staff did not really speak English neither I Portuguese but the breakfast manager was very very helpful to step in and help where we could not be. Understood or. Vida versa. In the end resulted to google translate to help which was fine. Over all We had a wonderful stay! Thank you for making our stay so special and memorable.

I recently stayed at this hotel and had booked a 5 star purposely for the sole reason it had a swimming pool. After check in I was informed the pool was out of service for our entire stay . I complained every day but just had an apology , no offer of any gesture of goodwill or ferrying us to another hotel where we might have been able to the pool. The pool area needs a complete renovation and looks like a throw back to the 1980’s. The toddlers pool was open but only measured 80cm- 1.1metres 🙄. Regardless it was unsuitable but also the tile grouting was filthy and again needed renovation. On the positive side the rooms are decorated in a classical style so don’t really date. Where they have spent money is the rooftop bar which was finished to a high standard.

Estimado Bartlett191, Agradecemos-lhe por ter escolhido o hotel Porto Palácio by The Editory e pelo tempo que levou a avaliar-nos. Por razões de segurança e para melhoraria das instalações, uma das piscinas teve de ser fechada nessas datas, pelo que lamentamos que a piscina mais pequena não tenha estado à altura das suas expectativas. Esperamos ter o prazer de o receber de novo na sua próxima visita à Cidade do Porto. Com os melhores cumprimentos,

This hotel is not in a very "touristy" area. 20-30 min cab ride to town center and other places of interest. When we checked in we asked for help about contacting a tour group for the next day and were told to call from the room on our own. Apparently she wasn't in the mood to help. We were travelling with another couple that had an A/C incident with water leaking in the room and were moved in the middle of the night to another room. We took a special bottle of wine to the rooftop bar and were told there would be a $50 cork fee. Overall the hotel is OK, but If you are looking for "beautiful" Porto, this is not the spot.

I specifically booked this hotel because it was 5 star and had a pool. On arrival we were informed that the pool was out of service for our entire stay. It was too late to find alternative accommodation so this was a huge disappointment for me and especially my teenage Nephew.

Big big disappointment. From the 10 minute check-in, tap tap, tap in the computer ( she could have been writing a novel for the amount that was input) to the allocation of wrong room type, back downstairs for another 5 minute re-check-in. No toothpaste was provided in the bathroom but a sewing kit was, most bizarre. Stains littered the room carpet. The health suite was fine, if you enjoy spending it apart from your family - males in one section and females in another (sauna and turkish). The screeching assistant at the health suite provided a further unsavoury experience. Yes we understood we needed a cap for the jacuzzi and pool, shouting it ever more loudly wasn't going to help, we understood the first time. We had to tell her to relax. Oh and of course they didn't provide/sell them there, you had to go upstairs to reception. Ridiculous. The breakfast was of standard fare, but the coffee was truly disgusting, poured like treacle. The worst coffee I have had in Portugal in my 4 years of living here. Undrinkable. And you know, you can tell the quality of a hotel by its coffee.

Arriving at the hotel for a business trip did the check in early afternoon and I was put in a room next to the elevator. The rest of my colleagues were all put in better rooms and the ones that were not Portuguese (I’m Portuguese) were offered a drink in the rooftop and even a room upgrade. I’ve asked the hotel to change room and I’ve been told they didn’t have any more rooms in that “segment” so I ask why didn’t they upgraded me since it was their bad to put in the room next to the elevator even when I did an early check in, they said they couldn’t do it at that time, so I was very surprised when talking with one of my colleagues from abroad was offered an upgrade AFTER I had this conversation with the hotel staff. Also the single beds in the room are super small and the carpet in the rooms is damaged. Dodge Porto Palácio, you better served with Sheraton just access the street!

Excellent service and very delicious breakfast included. Bar is very nice with excellent drinks. The only thing I would say is that if you really want to see the historic part of Porto then it’s not the best location. One thing I really like about this hotel is that it has incredible amenities including a fabulous spa. For €15 you can use the thermal pools and saunas and enjoy an hour of relaxation in this indoor dim lit Jacuzzi spa pool area. I also took it vantage of the spa and got a massage after four days touring Madrid. The massage was excellent another very reasonable price.

The hotel is marked as a 5+, but if you know Brussels, Paris, London 5* hotels, than this is more a 4*. The Hotel: from the outside the hotel doesn't look nice, but that counts for all buildings in Porto (70's style of buildings). The service is excellent, staff being pro-active and their level of English is very good compared to southern standards. The hotel gives a 70's felling, but is well equiped. The Room: nice spacious rooms with separate bathroom and separate toilet (defeinitely a plus). Good wifi connection. Beds are rather hard (you need to be used to that), good pillows, spacious safe (for laptops). Well cleaned. And with a turndown service. Breakfast: nice buffet. Too bad that you need to go to the cellar (Floor -1) for breakfast with no daylight. And this while they have a very nice rooftop bar/restaurant. But I understand that taht would be too small when the hotel is sold out. Rooftop Bar: on the 19th floor. You can sit inside/outside. The best USP of this hotel. Impressive, nice, modern and good service. The Hotel is situated near the Case de Musica underground (10 mins walk), and about a 30 min walk from the City Center. Taxis are cheap so you might consider that one instead of a walk.

Well what can I say. The staff were some of the nicest hotel staff I ever met and the restaurant and chef truly amazing. The room service unbelievable and roof top bar gorgeous. In the interest of balance, the air conditioning was broken and whilst I loved the idea of the volume buttons in the bathrooms to listen to the TV, they were also faulty. And the Google Chromecast on the TV would have been great if the website it connects you too didn't have an unexpected error. But these are tiny things... compared to an overall wonderful experience. Thank you to all staff!!
