Hotel is very much geared to elite residents with VIP floors,and suites. Not as welcoming to occasional tourist particularly front desk. Business traveller fine.However rooms, beds,linen totally five star. Service patchy,turn down only with visiting...

If you want to visit the old part of Porto, probably this is not the best location. But if you are looking for a nice hotel to relax, this is perfect. The rooms are nice (only missing the tea and coffee), the breakfast is nice, the bar on the top is great and the spa is amazing. Wasn't happy that...

It is a little bit far form the center, and this is the only negative note about this hotel. Rooms are large, well furnished. Breakfast is quite good and also the restaurant. Nothing to say about, just the distance form the city center and the river area.

Was only here for two nights, but have to say that the staff were superb.

This was a 36-hour, two night business trip, so I didn't see much of the hotel. However, what I did see impressed me: fabulously comfy beds, big rooms, friendly staff, seriously big choice for breakfast, offer of a glass of port on arrival... The hotel felt pretty empty but it may just have been the times I was about. Nip...

We arrived fairly late in the evening - and appreciated the friendly and helpful check in. We were given two glasses of port and some information about places to visit during our stay. We were shown to our (executive double) room, on the fifth floor, so not much of a view, but pleasant all the same. Great touches in the...

“The suite was very dark. The ac did not work properly. The light in one bath went of and one. One chair was broken. There is only a free waterbottle on the first day. The pool is 30 years old and no windows. Same with the breakfast downstairs: no windows. With ckeckout they 'force' you to take their hired taxi with no taxometer. Much more expensive than normal taxi. At the reception they can not even tell you were to rent a biceycle close by. After 5 days there was still this dead moth on the bathroom floor. The safety box did not work. After reparation the door card did not work. The price was very high: 250,-- for a suit. We have been in many 5 star hotels all over the world, but the Porto Palacio is max. a 3 star hotel. ”
