I have stayed in this hotel on business many times over the last few years. It is a nice hotel, with spacious rooms, a very nice gym and an above average breakfast. It used to be more oriented to luxury, lately I would say it has become quite standard. Nothing to complain about, especially if you get a good corporate...

Excellent hotel with large rooms and very attentive and professional staff. The lounge on the 19th floor offers great views over the Porto suburbs but if you're expecting to look over the old town you will be disappointed. The only thing that lets the hotel down is the location which is, apparently in a very nice part of town, but...

This is a 5 star hotel well located, at walking distance from the subway in a trendy area of Porto. Regarding the hotel itself there is not much to say, since, in general, it fulfills the requirements of an hotel of this category. What surprised me most is that one have to pay to access to a Wi-fi connection. Today,...

Excellent quality hotel, with very professional staff, spacious rooms and spa with no restrictions for age visits (good for children). I don't know if it was about Portugal, but everywhere we went the service was absolutely excellent, friendly and people genuinely paid attention and always try to help. The terrace on the 19th floor had a great view and service,...

If this is your first trip into Porto, the Palacio is a good choice for a few nights, but it quite a walk from the historic old town sites or decent restaurants. We tired the ones attached to the property (pass these by) and the hotel itself only serves breakfast unless it is a function lunch buffet. The breakfast buffet...

I stayed four nights as part of a Conference held at the hotel. Rooms are way larger than average, continental breakfast. Did not use fitness and Spa - but rather went out for sightseeing and to appreciate Portuguese seafood options by the river. A little far from the metro, but still at a walking distance. Recommended for business trips.

“The suite was very dark. The ac did not work properly. The light in one bath went of and one. One chair was broken. There is only a free waterbottle on the first day. The pool is 30 years old and no windows. Same with the breakfast downstairs: no windows. With ckeckout they 'force' you to take their hired taxi with no taxometer. Much more expensive than normal taxi. At the reception they can not even tell you were to rent a biceycle close by. After 5 days there was still this dead moth on the bathroom floor. The safety box did not work. After reparation the door card did not work. The price was very high: 250,-- for a suit. We have been in many 5 star hotels all over the world, but the Porto Palacio is max. a 3 star hotel. ”
