First time in Porto. Came for the local product!
Hotel is palatial and in a cracking place, basically the centre of the old town.
We were upgraded to a King Executive duplex suite, a marvellous room with a really comfortable bed. Excellent nights' sleep.
What really made the stay though were the delightful staff. Every single member we met was welcoming, friendly, helpful and enthusiastic. Their personalities shone through naturally, not in a false way as is so often the case in service industries.
We rarely use Concierge services but here they were outstanding.
A very big thank you to Mr Martins and his whole team.
Clearly port was the initial draw but we now know the people are too.
Definitely plan a re-visit to this hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yclimber Great staff and location, new Duplex Suite room is ?
Excellent location and staff - 1min from the Porto Sao Bento main station, and facing the main square (Praça da Liberdade) towards city hall. Walkable to most of the attractions in town. The staff were also very attentive and helped us in all occasions from telling us what to see, where to walk, to getting a taxi - very quick responses to requests.
Duplex Suite - They seemed to be recently rennovated, so very clean, and well appointed. Only downside is that they have NO VIEW from the windows (downstairs window faces a wall, and upstairs window looking up in the sky), and you feel you are in the room converted from the attic (which it is). There are other normal executive rooms (which are a bit smaller and cheaper) with brilliant views of Praça da Liberdade and city hall - i might rather get those.
Breakfast quality and variety was also below average compared to my other InterContinenta stays.
But overall, the location and staff quality was excellent and overcomes all these shortcoming, and we had a fantastic stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RO60 World class service
My wife and I spent a long weekend at the PALACIO DAS CARDOSAS. Our first visit to the wonderful city of Porto was truly enhanced by the world class service at this hotel. All members of staff went out of their way to serve and inform. We travel all over the world both for work and please and this is amongst the best of the best hotels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pegasus75 Elegant building in a central location
The hotel has a very convenient location near to Sao Bento station. The staff are, without exception, delightful, discreet and eager to help.
The continental breakfast is delicious and very good value, and the bar is a most pleasant place for an interesting light meal. Thanks to the introduction from the hotel we had an excellent experience at Graham's Port Lodge. All in all, a lovely short break in a beautiful city!
