ts clear that Europe has different standards for rating hotels. What you would consider a 4 star in the U.S. is more like a 3 star in Europe. The Porto Palacio for example is considered a 5 star yet internet is not included in the room rate. In this day and age, that is almost unheard of. They offer a...

This is hotel is a great find and phenomenal value for money. Probably suffers a bit from its location, which is a bit out of the way, and the economic situation in Portugal, but I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. The location not a big issue as taxis are cheap. Rooms comfortable, spacious and clean, a luxury hotel at budget...

This was our first visit to Porto, Portugal and after reading several hotel reviews we decided not to stay in the "old" fashion hotels at Downtown but in a more modern hotel with all facilities and a fresh smell. This hotel is very well communicated and you can go easily downtown Porto by local transport ( 1.80 Euros) or taxi...

This hotel claims to be one of the 'Leading Hotels of the World'. Don't know how it managed that. It also claims to be 5 star hotel but by European standards it would be classed as a 4 star. We found that the star rating in Portugal was not equivalent to UK ratings. The room was adequate and had double...

Myself and 9 other friends have just returned from trip to Porto staying at the Palacio. We were all hugely impressed by not only the standard and quality of the hotel, rooms, decor and facilities but also the extremely helpful and friendly staff. We were astounded by the value for money for the quality of hotel. I would thoroughly recommend.

We actually went to the wrong hotel. We were supposed to go to the Intercontinental - which has Porto and Palacio in its name. So we get to the front desk, and the clerk tells us we are at the wrong hotel. We are tired. So we ask if they have a room - and if they will cancel our...

The standard room is cheap but does not include free breakfast, nor parking or wi-fi. Therefore I strongly recommend the Deluxe rooms: cozy, nicely decorated, excelent view and access to the "à la carte" breakfast at the top floor VIP lounge with a panoramic view over Porto. Free parking and wi-fi are included in the tariff. Therefore, the all-in price...

I’ve been a regular guest since 2010. For me this hotel stands out above the rest for one main reason: the Staff. Yes, it ticks all the 5 star boxes, has a great Gym and Health club, various restaurants (among them a fantastic Japanese) and the famous VIP lounge overlooking Porto. But at the end of the day it is...
