Spent five nights for a alte celebration of our anniversary. Every thing was as expected from an Intercontinental Hotel. The only minor thing was due to its' ideal situation in the centre of town there was no garden or terrace but otherwise - perfect. The only other comment to make is if you have trouble walking then be prepared to...

We spent two nights at the intercontinental hotel in Porto: a very nice experience! Clean, very traditionally decorated for an international hotel and clean. What we especially appreciated was the perfect starting point for discovering Porto in a few days (literally close to everything!) and - most of all - the friendly staff and helpful concierge: do trust the restaurant...

The location is perfect, just off the main sights in Porto. The staff is very attentive and made all the difference during the stay. The Concierges gave the best tips and indications and helped us make this trip a memorable celebration! The guys at the Restaurant recognized us on the second morning and already knew how we liked our coffee....

Enjoying a glass of port with the french doors open in the room (narrow balcony) and seeing all the action in the square was a highlight. The bathroom was also spectacular with separate shower and...

If money is no object, this is the place to stay. Right on the Praca Liberdade, our room overlooked the plaza below while inside offered a spacious room. Very large with a comfortable king bed, a bathroom with three distinct partitions, shower, commode and sink with dressing area. The lighting could have been a little better but with a view...
