Porto - Palacio Das Cardosas

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 158 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lovely room 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. 17 November 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! 16 November 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. 15 November 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by EXCELLENT!!!! Great Hotel and great staff!!! The location is perfect. A five star in every way. 07 November 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent business meeting We had a three-day business meeting, using the conference rooms and catering services. The hotel is gorgeous, the staff courteous and knowledgeable and the location impeccable! Truly a stellar property - I hope I am able to return with my family. Obrigado! 04 November 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 5 Stars Plus Service of excellence in all areas: ambiance, fragrance, decor, door man, front desk, restaurant. In a nutshell: Absolutely fabulous! Only hoping the employees are getting well-deserved praise for a great job. 30 October 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by a perfect stay in a beautiful hotel A wonderful stay in a beautiful place. The staff was more than supportive and helpful. For sure it must be the best hotel of Porto. 25 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic service I hope we will com back soon. Best gin tonice ever. mvh Thomassen Norway 23 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Hotel in Porto One of the best Interconti, perfect staff!! Wonderfull Hotel, upgrad to Suite, we will come back, everythink was nice! 22 October 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Location & Staff The Porto Intercontinental is ideally located in the centre of the old town close to the tour bus stops and main railway station and within an easy walking distance to the attractive Ribeiro river side area. The latter is the best spot in Porto for tourist goods, bars, cafes and small restaurants and is the departure point for boat trips down the River Douro. The service provided by all the hotel staff during our stay was outstanding but the in-house restaurant was expensive for both breakfast and dinner and the menu in the evenings was quite limited in choice, especially if you were resident for several days. It is also disappointing that this 5 star hotel has no swimming pool or shop. Having said all this, our overall stay was comfortable and enjoyable. 20 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Better than perfect We stayed at the intercontinental porto placio das cardosas in September 2013, and had an unforgettable experience. Everything was perfect. Better than perfect. The hotel is beautiful on its own, placed in the most central location in Porto. The room was great. However, the big plus was the service: everyone was truly eager to help us - from booking restaurants and pointing the attractions in Porto to helping us plan our road trip after we had left Porto. We were told by several different staff members - if you're on the road and you see you get lost or need some assistance - just give us a call. To us, this hotel did not feel like a hotel. It felt like staying at your rich uncle's house. Sure - the place is beautiful, but way better than that - he cares. Bottom line: WE WILL COME BACK. 13 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful hotel, great location We stayed here for 3 nights in September 2013 - the hotel looked beautiful (inside and out) on the pictures and we weren't disappointed in real life. We were really fortunate too, they upgraded us to a duplex suite which was a real privilege. The hotel is in a perfect central location. It has a lovely atmosphere, good staff, lovely bar/lounge, decently equipped 24hr gym, plus a spa (which sadly we didn't have time to try). The only criticism was breakfast. It wasn't included in the price and 25 Euros felt a bit expensive for something which was perfectly nice, but not amazing. Would definitely recommend the hotel and we really enjoyed our stay. 11 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay Spent 4 days at the hotel during my first visit to Porto. Room was quiet and comfortable. All the staff were very friendly and knowledgable especially the concierge, with recommendations of restaurants, trips and where to buy port. Free Wifi worked throughout hotel. Minor issue with missing delivery of bottles of port but the hotel resolved efficiently. Great location within easy walk of river and cultural sights. Plenty of cafes nearby if you don't want a full breakfast in hotel. 11 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Nice!!! Beautiful lobby, friendly/helpful staff, wonderful breakfast buffet-- Sheets, towels,mattress and pillows very nice!!! Bathrooms were large and beautiful--separate shower and great soaking tub--all marble. Fabulous location-- I usually don't take the time to review-but we really enjoyed our stay! 10 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful hotel with friendly staff Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Porto. Our experience was amazing. Beautiful rooms with the friendliest staff. Location is close to the river and on main thoroughfare. Delicious breakfast served. 09 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Hotel in Oporto Stayed one night in Oporto on my way to Galicia. Enjoyed the hotel very much. I am a platinum member and was treated as such from the beginning. Friendly staff and beautiful premises. They upgraded us to a suite with a very high level of comfort. The concierge was great and gave us very good tips for our walking tour of the city. Enjoyed Oporto very much and the Hotel was a big part of that experience 06 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Hotel I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Booking was very straighforward via the website. Check in was very efficient and the receptionist most helfpul. We had some minor issues with external noise the first night which was efficiently resolved. Concierge was very helpful and able to recommend some good local restaurants for us. Would definitely stay again. 04 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by professionalism As the daughter of an hotelier, I appreciate professional details. The fact that someone thought of velvet padded hangers for ladies knit dresses shows me that someone is thinking of the comfort and satisfaction of the guest. The staff was unfailingly competent and polite, particularly the concierge and his assistants. 02 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great 3 nights That this is the best hotel in Porto would come as no surprise based on its architecture and location, but the efforts of the staff to welcome you, the care and attention to detail of the concierges, the quality of the food offered in its restaurant (both at breakfast and dinner) and the overall ‘look and feel’ of the place all contributed to a great break in a lovely city (despite sudden and unseasonal adverse weather when an Atlantic storm swept in). Our room was extremely well appointed, and the maid service was exemplary. 02 October 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Location and View When we arrived in our room I could not believe the amazing view out onto the square! The room was very spacious and clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. The television system was very easy to use so we actually watched movies during our stay. The only negative things: the staff at breakfast often seemed stressed out and behind, and parking was really expensive at more than 20 euro a day! 26 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by perfect location within walking distance to everything we wanted to see. 24 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very good place in Porto nicely located and wth excellent concierge service. 08 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I loved my stay at this hotel Everything was excellent, room, lobby, food, location and especially staff. Thanks. 07 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent hotel This is a wonderful hotel and will return to stay again. Absolutely no complaints 04 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fabulous Hotel Can't say enough about our stay at this property. The hotel was beautiful and clean and comfortable and conveniently located. Most importantly, the staff bent over backwards to make us feel welcome and special. Everyone from the concierges, to the front desk staff, to the manager in the restaurant, everyone went out of their way to accomodate us. Would go back to this property in a minute! 01 September 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service All was perfect, the bedroom, the bathroom, the breakfast... 13 August 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Airco temp policy I realy do not understand why the hotel has the policy to have a minimum temperature of 20 degrees set on the airco system, whereas temperatures outside can exceed 35 degrees. To create a cool room I would expect at least the possibility to choose for 18 degrees in the room. This in combination of not opening the outside window because of the noise on the square resulted in 2 bad sleeping nights for me and my family. The one free breakfast offered was nice, however not in relation of the difficulties we experienced. 12 August 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by too much noise I stayed one weekend last july. Every day at 8.00 beginning to sound a trumpet in the Liberdade Square, and sleep was impossible. 05 August 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good value staff couldn't have been more helpful, especially concierge. (My wife thought the young men were gorgeous!) Our suite was most comfortable and the air conditioning worked very adequately. Two meals in the restaurant, very agreeable. High season tariff very reasonable. Really good value. 03 August 2013
