by Vfb1893 The best service in Porto
A very nice experience. Angela at thevReception, just like the entire Concierge team, esp. ricardo were very helpful and knowledgeable.
The duplex suite is beautiful and motivates us to return to this new property with excellent beds and interior.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mariaconm Excellent on every way!
From the location of the building to the every detail, I loved the experience. I travelled alone with my two years old baby and I couldn't have chosen a better place for a weekend break. Every member of the staff was friendly and helpful, from arrival until departure time. The only feedback I could give is to housekeeping because they sort of forgot us couple of times, the first was during the morning round on the first day and then in the afternoon round the second day, but they made it up few hours later so it was no issue at all. I most specially congratulate fur exceptional help and attention to the concierge team who always helped us with great advice and five * attention
Thank you very much and we look forward to come back to Porto very soon

The Intercontinental was our fifth hotel in Portugal and our final night (aside from our stay at the airport). We did not want to leave! The room was extremely comfortable, the bathroom had every amenity, and the staff was excellent. I would strongly recommend it to anyone staying in Porto. It was also a tremendous value for the money as it was truly five star.

The staff is very knowledgable, friendly and accommodating. The hotel is centrally located and site has great views of the plaza. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Lovely room and bathroom. Good breakfast buffet. Only quibble is that there could be better lighting in the room. Excellent stay and highly recommend.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by IanM65 Great city break, best hotel in Porto
We spent 5 nights at Palacio das Cardosas in April 2013. The hotel is very well located in the centre of the city, near to all the main sights and only 15 minutes on foot from the riverside. The staff are excellent (special thanks to Goncalo on the concierge desk). We had a very comfortable executive room on the 3rd floor: make sure you get a room facing Praca da Liberdade. Breakfasts were excellent and we enjoyed one evening meal - try the leitao (suckling pig).
Not cheap but good value if you book in advance on a deal. 5 star luxury hotel, oasis of quiet and quality in the middle of the city. Go: you won't be disappointed!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GCBG Great concierge, great location
Despite the weather we very much enjoyed our stay at the Porto - Palacio das Cardosas and that was much because of the staff as because of the hotel. I was impressed before arriving at the hotel as they were very accommodating in handling a very last minute request to organize a shuttle from the airport to the hotel.
We were very nicely, and quickly, received at the hotel, shown to our rooms, explained the amenities. It was as you would expect, well-appointed. All very well and nice.
What made all the difference in the world for us was the care from the Concierge staff R, G, and D. They responded to all our requests and questions, made dinner reservations for us and gave us advice on touring the city and the caves. Delighted!
We especially appreciate the effort R made for the dinner reservations. He might not have realized we understood enough Portuguese to know he was trying his best for us.
We highly recommend!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tonyd1965 Hotel that makes you feel welcome
Palacio Das Cardosas is one of the most welcoming hotels I have ever visited. From check-in, to concierge, to restaurant staff, people could not be nicer.
The hotel is brilliantly in a main square, located yards from the beautiful Sao Bento train station which connects with the central train station in 4 minutes. The rooms are equally beautiful and elegant.
10 minutes walk away you are by the port with a range of restaurants etc.
I could not recommend this hotel highly enough.
