I had the pleasure of staying at the Intercontinental Hotel in Porto for business and it was genuinely some of the best service I've ever received. From the knowledge of the check in desk of where I should run to get a 14 miler in the following day, to Vanessa's attention to detail in the lounge bar. The rooms are...

Best hotel I've stayed in many years. Where do I begin.... Checked in and immediately got a room upgrade Extremely attentive and very helpful staff. Gave me a selection of pillows to choose from since I don't prefer down feathers. Concierge staff greeted me daily and were extremely attentive to my needs. The Bar offered weekend entertainment and just added...

Wonderful room, super comfortable bed, nice bathroom. Nothing to complain about the accommodation. Very good breakfast also. Excellent! However, the service is not so excellent as the hotel facilities. We were at this hotel for a special occasion and the hotel didn’t take care about some basic details for a 5 stars hotel.

We recently stayed at the Intercontinental in Porto and really enjoyed this hotel. The location is excellent (be prepared for the hills in Porto) and our first impressions on check-in were excellent. The service was fantastic throughout our stay. The rooms are classy and modern, clean and spacious enough for a weekend. We were at the end of a corridor...

We are a picky family of four and chose intercontinental due to central location and wrong assumption it is a true five star! This is a business hotel that might be suitable for Busy travelers who just need to sleep, breakfast is a joke with synthetic place mats ,poor selection of food and staff is rude, they shouted at my...

We stayed in the InterConti for three nights and were really happy with the choice we made. First of all, the location is very central. You can walk to the river for a glass of wine, see the most important touristic attractions in the center by foot or go out in some bars close by. The rooms are spacious, beds...

This hotel had large rooms, great location, very traditional decor. Everything was very nice. The only issue we had was that our safe broke. Unfortunately, we only found this out after we had locked our stuff in there. We needed to get our medicines out before bed and the safe would not open. No one in the hotel knew what...

Porto is a wonderful city and this hotel was a perfect choice for our sightseeing visit in January. The staff were excellent in every way and we were very well looked after .

“It is probably quieter at the hotel rear. We had two Juliet balconies so were exposed to city noise, especially on St Patrick's eve.”

“Please ask if any exterior rooms are available.... PS: the windows are soundproof, so no noise at all.”
