Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beege01 Beautiful Hotel / Central location
Beautiful hotel, very centrally located. Staff extremely helpful, especially the Concierge staff. Upgraded (because of Ambassador membership) to a great room. Food (only had breakfast) was very good. No hesitation in recommending the hotel. The only down-side was that seemed only to be able to switch on/off the air-conditioning by ringing Reception (which I had to do in the middle of the night).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deni22 Best service ever, perfect location
Our room was an amazing duplex, with a great view to a church, two bathrooms, extremely comfortable. The service was impecable.
It felt like a small boutique hotel because the service was so personal ( the intercontinental team remembered us by name, asked how was our dinner reservations, and were extremely polite).
At the same time we had the structure of a a big serious hotel.
The wi-fi in our room was slow, they immediately took care of it.
The bar (restaurant) with live music was also great.
The location is perfect. We can walk to most tourist atractions.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by STEVIEBULL9 Great weekend treat
We do this every year at a different ICH Hotel for our wedding anniversary , last year was Paris, twice the cost but no where near as good as Porto ! Great room upgrade and gifts, good central location to use tour buses to see the city,great tips from concierge staff for dinner at restaraunts in area, not so sure about balcony view from our downstairs room (ha ha) you will know what we mean , but not a problem. Classy bar with entertainment some nights, thank you all !! Even the student celebrations did not spoil our weekend, but enhanced it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MGCHICAGO POOR BREAKFAST SERVICE
UNPROFESSIONAL SERVICE AT BREAKFAST WITH INCOMPETENCE, NO KNOWLEDGE OF SERVICE, COFFEE AND BREAD AT THE END INSTEAD OF THE BEGINNINING, NO UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT PORK AVOIDANCE REALLY MEANS, LACK OF PLATES ON THE INDIVIDUAL BREAKFAST. IN THE FUTURE WON'T COME BACK. WE HAD ALL REMAINING BREAKFASTS AT THE YEATMAN HOTEL. DIFFICULT TO ADMIT GUILT. A PITY..

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by trvl01 Amazing Experience
The intercontinental Porto caught me off-guard, exceptional staffs with genuine approaches and impeccable knowledge of the operations. Breakfast room and service can be improved, and I am sure the top management is already looking into.
Martha at the Bar, Bruno and Mariana at the Reception, Rogerio and Goncalo who I truly believe are the best concierge in Europe if not in the globe.
Thank you for the experiences and can't wait till the return.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Werner_IHG2014 Fantastic stay in Porto
This was my first stay in Porto and at the Intercontinental Hotel PALACIO DAS CARDOSAS. I used my IHG points for two nights at the hotel and had modest expectations for those reward nights. I was however more than just positively surprised by the the fantastic room I received and by the absolutely excellent service provided by the hotel staff. This is most certainly my most wonderful Intercontinental Hotel Experience to date! Staff was super helpful in providing sightseeing advice and restaurants/port wine tour visits in the town, all of which proved to be spot on. This experience makes me want to come back for another stay in the future!

I really enjoyed the stay at the Intercontinental in Porto. The staff was very friendly and courteous. The room size (double room) was appropriate for a 5***** hotel. Room service in the middle of the night worked out really well and was delicous.
I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Everything about the Palacio Das Cardosas is top notch. Great location, beautiful decor, extremely helpful staff, very comfortable and even large rooms, well equipped fitness room. Our teenaged daughter stayed on a portable bed and they even thought to an additional provide robe and slippers for her. We felt it was first class all the way.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bruno12 Best place to stay in Porto
Central location in Porto, close to all landmark sites and with great access to Porto Wine Cellars in Gaia.
The hotel rooms and facilities are of great standards and the staff is 5 star, very friendly and paying attention to guests needs.
Staff suggested and provided all arrangements for visiting Porto Wine Cellars which was a great experience. Definitely recommend speaking with the concierge for arranging these visits.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JPG7 Wonderful hotel, location and concierge service
We absolutely loved our stay at the Intercontinental, Porto. The location is in the heart of the city and an easy walk to most of the best sights and attractions. The attentiveness and attention to detail of the staff is of the highest caliber. The concierge services is what really put this hotel a cut above the rest. They made excellent recommendations of things to see and do, helped orient us with the layout of the city and made wonderful dinner recommendations (as well as making the reservations). If you are traveling to Porto I would recommend staying here!

Loved this hotel. Room very comfortable and clean.
Had a room at the front, some people said it was noisy. It was not! After all you are in a city, cities are noisy.
Highlight of the hotel was the concierge . He was brilliant and charming, best concierge I've met.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MarcandMarc Best hotel of the year!
Read the reviews before booking the hotel and was a bit sceptic because a lot of people always gave the higest rate. Afer staying in the hotel for three nights I now know why!
Every feedback shared is true. The staff is fantastic, the hotel is great and nothing is too much to ask for. It almost feels like a six-star hotel experience. A few examples: we were there to celebrate a fiftieth birthday and got amenities without extra charge, best restaurants in town were remommened to celebrate and were indeed the best in quality and price, Other litlle things the staff does make you feel like being home. Can go on an on to share great hotel experiences..
In short if I'm ever back in town: will return to this hotel!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Britbiztraveller Great hotel , great staff, great location
This is a really nice hotel - big rooms, beautifully appointed, very comfy bed - slap bang in the centre of Oporto. But what makes it stand out for us is how friendly and helpful the staff were.
The marble bathroon's lovely, but the helpfulness of the concierges was what we will remember the place for.
Oporto is charming and we will be back.
