Great location
We really enjoyed our room. Great view of the city hall and Plaza Libertade. The pillows were incredibly comfortable, and the bedding was also great. We just stayed at an Intercontinental in San Francisco and there was no comparison. This was much better. The breakfast was delicious, also, though sometimes it was hard to catch the attention of waitstaff to get coffee or order from the menu. Would definitely stay here again. The only downside is the construction out front that requires significant detours if you need to go left out of the front door.

Excellent hotel in THE best location!
From the moment we set foot we knew this place was special. The reception staff were excellent and helpful and even brought us right up to our room. It was great but I couldn't use the stairs - no problem, it was changed instantly. Breakfast was brilliant with a huge selection of everything. The staff were so professional, we were impressed with the incredible attention to detail and speed of service. All the food was first class. The location is perfect for walking around Porto, and the city is made for walking. Our room was huge with a great view. It's an old palace and the rooms are palatial. One of the best hotels we have ever stayed at by far! We will be back!
