Everything works at this beautifully restored hotel in the very middle of Porto. Excellent and helpful staff always thought of ways to help during our stay. Only slight "constructive comment" is that the Concierge was not fully up to date with events that were being held in the City during our stay - but when we uncovered them ourselves he/they...

It is hard to criticise this hotel, from the really welcoming reception staff and the housekeeping staff, who ensured that the room was arranged to our satisfaction and comfort (and lovely toiletries which I actually used!) This is a beautiful building, with stylish but comfortable furniture and fittings, in prime position on the main square. Breakfast was very enjoyable, plenty...

We stayed on a leisure/work trip and had a beautiful room with a big bathroom on a 4th floor facing the back (we requested this as noise was a concern). The room was spacious, nicely decorated, cleaned very well and there was a nightly turn down service which I love and wish more hotels with 5 star ratings offered.The concierge...

We generally enjoyed our 2 night stay here, and found the staff to be helpful and friendly at all times. We had a nice room facing the square which was comfortable and big enough for our needs. It was definitely possible to hear the noise from the street, although this was not really a problem with the double glazing which...

Being right on one of the main Historic squares and plazas was great. Great location not too far from the river and not too far from the main sights. The staff was very nice and helpful too and there was no attitude even though it's a classy hotel The only caveat if you have a room that faces the square...

We stayed at the InterContinental at the end of March this year. We had a great experience right from check in. The staff were great and nothing was too much trouble. The room was upgraded to a duplex suite, which was very well maintained and clean. It was a fantastic base for our stay and exploring the city. The hotel...

We had a very spacious twin room (I was there for a weekend with a friend) and it is in a great location for everything you might want to do. Obviously, being an Intercontinental hotel, not particularly "Porto" feel, but this was more than made up for by the quality of the concierge - they were charming and could not...

The hotel has a prime location and our room (311) was a great size for a city centre hotel. It overlooked the square and had the benefit of a balcony that offered great views. Being at the front of the hotel it could be a little noisy but that was part of the appeal. The hotel is most certainly five...

We had stayed here in October 2015 for a weekend. The hotel is very conveniently situated in the city. We were able to walk everywhere in the city. Our room was quite unique. It was a loft room. As you enter the room, you would walk into the living area (sofa & and TV). There was also a toilet available...

“Second floor facing the plaza. Having balcony access made for such a treat to watch the people walking up and down the streets.”

“Top floor duplex suites are lovely, but don't have a view over the square.”

“If noise is a concern and you are willing to sacrifice great view of the square, ask for a room facing the back.”
