Porto - Palacio Das Cardosas

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 178 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Nothing But The Best The Intercontinental Porto is a classically beautiful hotel in a perfect location in the heart of the city. It's next door to the Estacao de S. Bento rail terminal (be sure to check out the tile murals inside the terminal entrance) and is within an easy walk to the river and most everything the tourist would want to see in central Porto. The hotel sits on the lovely Praca da Liberdade with an expansive plaza in front. We were fortunate to get a room on the front and had wonderful views of the plaza and St Anthony's church across the street. The hotel staff was excellence personified, but I cannot say enough good things about their concierge staff. We dealt with two or three of them during our 2 nights stay, and each one was exceedingly friendly, helpful and professional. They made dinner reservations for us both nights at two exceptional restaurants featuring the best of traditional Portuguese cuisine (one was Ze Bota--a short walk up the hill from the hotel, and the other was ODE Porto Wine House--a longer walk to the river, but well worth it), and referred us to two local port wineries for cellar tours and tastings (and if you go through the hotel, you don't have to pay any fees at the wineries). Our room was absolutely lovely; large (a rarity in Europe), quiet, beautifully furnished and very well appointed with every convenience. And as if this wasn't all good enough, the nightly rate we paid was almost too good to be true for a luxury property of this calibre. It made our first trip to Portugal a wonderful and memorable experience. I could find no fault whatsoever with this hotel and its staff and I recommend it highly to the leisure traveler. In fact, when we return to this incredibly beautiful city, the Intercontinental will be the only place we'll stay. 10 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grossartiger Service und tolle Zimmer Sehr gutes Hotel mit freundlichem und hilfsbereitem Personal 10 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best choice for luxury and convenience in Porto While fairly expensive we were totally happy with our choice of this hotel. Fabulous room with 2 windows and juliette balconies overlooking the plaza but absolutely quite at night. The location is unbeatable. Valet car parking was much appreciated. Front desk and concierge service was top notch. Highly recommended. 07 October 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Poca resolutividad - Excelentes instalaciones La habitación e instalaciones son magníficas, pero sin embargo un error que podría haber sido subsanado con un buen servicio, ha hecho que nuestra estancia sea para no repetir. Tuvimos que avisar de que no estaba hecha la habitación, nos dejaron tirados en el hall durante más de 1 hora y cuando ya estaba hecha nadie nos avisó. 07 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect place to stay in Porto We had a great 4 days in Porto and this is the hotel to stay at in Porto. It is central to everything, everything is within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel has a great energy and style about it. So always great going back into our hotel. The staff are also fantastic. Exactly what you expect of a 5 star hotel. I would definitely stay here again on our next visit. 05 October 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great first impression of Porto. Transferred here from another hotel due to admin error. Very comfortable stay. 05 October 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service by all the people at the Hotel. The staff was very courteois, specially we obtained great iondications from the concierge. We ussually don't see a Concierge with so much knowdlege of a city, but in this case, he was excepcional. You must improve the lights in the guest rooms, specially the bathroom areas. 25 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location Best beds and pillows in Portugal! Our room was lovely and the central location was perfect. Rogerio, a concierge was very helpful. The only breakdown was inadequate training of housekeeping. Our dirty cups and tea/ coffee were not replaced each day; a bottle of port and souvenir papers were tossed out ( they replaced the port) and we were charged for water we did not take. I am sure the hotel would have removed the water charge but the check out desk was under staffed at peak times and we had to catch a flight so we did not protest. 23 September 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Terrific experience My recent stay @ Intercontinental Porto was beyond reproach. The room, facilities are ultramodern, the staff is very knowledgeable and helpful The room was available for immediate check in after an overnight flight We had excellent breakfast, lunches and dinner in the hotel's restaurant enjoying the local dishes and wine. I would like to recognize the trainee Miguel for giving me a brief history of Portugal and Porto area. 13 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MK Location is great, very helpful staff. Noisy at times and the breakfast is lacking. Overall, a good value for money and excellant location. Worth the stay. 11 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place and well located Wonderful stay at your hotel. So well located which allowed us to see many things in a couple of days. Walking from hotel was a great experience. Staff and concierge were knowledgeable about great restaurants they sent us to. get a room on top floor facing city hall.....great view. Only inconvenient is sometimes it could be noisy outside as it is downtown. But we managed anyway. We highly recommend this hotel. 11 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best hotel in Porto We really enjoyed our 2-nights stay at the Intercontinental Hotel in Porto. It situates in the centre of the city. The hotel is beautiful and the inside is all modern and easy to use. All the staff, including the concierge, the reception and the restaurant, are very helpful and quick to respond with a smile. Even their email response were good. Rooms wre everyday cleaned well. I regret that I did not bring bath salt with me because the room has a very nice big bath tub which any Japanese people like.Shampoo/treatment/soap/bath gels smelt all very nice. It is not a big deal but it would be better to have complimentary water in each room. I understand that this depends on the room quality, but with a 5-star hotel, I believe water should be comlimentary. The hotel is a littly pricy compared with other hotels in Porto but if you go with two persons, it is not so expensive as you can split the fee. For the occassion of going alone, I hope the hotel will have a cheaper price for one person stay. Overall it is a wonderful hotel and we highly recommend it to everyone. (Thus the hotel we stayed after this in Lisbon seemed less good...(!) ) 11 September 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A 5-star hotel in the heart of the city The experience here was truly 5 star. All staff was well informed and always friendly. Dinner reservations and sightseeing suggestions were very helpful. Our room was large, tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Though we had a front room on the 2nd floor with views of the plaza and it's activities, the double glazed French doors cut out all street noise when closed. The breakfast buffet was extensive and varied with fresh breads and fruits and eggs-to-order. Seating in the restaurant was uncrowded. We spent 2 nights mid-August and would stay there again. 10 September 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grand old hotel Great luxurious hotel with history. Very attentive and friendly service. Perfect location in the centre. Great restaurant and lobby bar with live music and good wine. 28 August 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by grand old hotel Elegant and solid classic hotel, grand old building with history. Nice and comfortable room decor, pillows, bedding robes have good quality. Professional service, a number of the staff has been there for years. Wonderful pool area, unfortunately water not warm enough. Breakfast is good. The location of the hotel is great, close to the beach, station, casino and other destinations. My only concern when booking was to have quiet room, but the noise from the lobby disturbed us much, I'm a light sleeper. We were given another room and slept well after that. 28 August 2014
