The Intercontinental is an amazing hotel. We were here for three nights and greatly enjoyed it. It's located in a great spot with Liberdade Square right across the street. The river is about a 10 minute walk. There are bars, restaurants, and shops everywhere. The main attractions of the city are within walking distance as well. Our room was large...

We spent 2 nights here & wished it was longer. The rooms and spacious and we had a beautiful view. Loved the breakfast and the concierge was fantastic- great restaurant recommendations and nothing was too much trouble- even a super early checkout. I would definitely stay here again.

Our room was big and clean. The only minus was the noise from the streets and the church clock working all night. But the services and breakfast were really good. They treated our kid very well. So we would definitely stay at this hotel again!

Excellent room, superb breakfast with pasteis de nata - never to be missed- and portuguese pastries, best location in the city, close to the elevator to Vila Nova de Gaia, where you can taste different kinds of Port wine. The best thing is the treatment we received from all staff, mainly from Joana, the queen of the Reception. She was...

very nice hotel with excellent staff and service. Room was large and well appointed. A very corporate and businesslike hotel, but nevertheless well managed. I would stay here again. An added point the bar is fantastic with evening cabaret style entertainment and of course excellent Port!

I stay only for one night, but it was amazing. The hotel is so beautiful, it starts in the entrance and go´s to the rooms. The staff was so kindly and gives you all the attention you need. The councierge very profissional. I've loved everything.

This hotel is at the oerfect location for sightseeing. Very convenient for a family with stroller and car, as they have a valet service and the pavements are wider here for walking. The area is safe and the hotel food options for our toddler were excellent. The room was very comfortable, the heating and air conditioning was perfect, and the...

Stayed here while visiting Porto for the Leicester City match v Porto. This is a very nice well situated hotel. I had a beautiful and very comfortable room overlooking the square. The hotel bar was very good and the buffet breakfast fantastic. Definitely worth considering if you're going to Porto.
