Stayed here just one night on a business trip. Quite a new hotel so very smart. Room was very good indeed with a balocny overlooking the square. Breakfast was superb with just about every variety of food on offer. They even made good tea!

Superb location, just near every-where! Professional and extra-polite staff. Beautiful decor and well designed suites. Amazing bath-rooms. The balconies facing the Praça da Liberdade, shall give you an excellent opportunity for an "in-room" break-fast"

I loved everything about this hotel. The hotel and rooms were elegant and beautiful, and the service was outstanding. Each staff member addressed me by name and assisted me with everything I needed. They even tried to preempt my needs. I was made to feel right at home. It was centrally located and close to all the major sites. The...

We took the train from Lisbon to Porto, and the hotel is only 2-3 min walk from the train station. We were upgraded to a suite room which has two floors. The room is a mix of traditional and modern styles. Staff is also very nice. The best intercontinental hotel we have been stayed!

This hotel is all what it says (and others say) and more. From the very amiable service, the very professional support of the staff, the interior, the food and drinks, not much more I can add. I was upgraded (above what they had to do to ecognize my IHG level) to the executive suite on the 4th floor which was...

This luxurious and elegant hotel makes you feel at home from the moment you step in. The staff is very attentive to your needs and requests and even remember your name. We got great recommendations about places to eat and city tours. Our room was very spacious with a huge bathroom all covered in marble and a spectacular view of...

I chose this hotel based on reviews from TripAdvisor, and although it was quite expensive compared to other options I went for it. I was on vacation with the family on Dec 27-30, and the hotel was simply superb. The condition of the hotel from the lobby, to common areas, to the room itself was 5/5, and the room was...

I have had the good fortune to travel a great deal and have stayed in the best and the worse hotels, motels, B & B's, Inns, hostels, castles, you name it, and without a doubt, the Porto Intercontinental Hotel is the very best. A group of family and friends from the US spent the week before Christmas in Porto (which...

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel and can't say enough good things. 1: LOCATION -- perfect. We wanted to stay near the water but are really happy we chose this instead. It's always hard to pick when you don't know the city. This is in the heart of it all. Minutes walking distance to the water, right downtown and...

The hotel (which opened in 2011) is in a superb location at the base of Praca da Liberdade (Liberty Square), within a 10-minute walk of the river, the restaurant district, the main shopping street, and most everything else you might want to do in downtown Porto. The building is a beautifully renovated 18th century palace, remodeled in a classic and...
