Nice hotels with large rooms. Spacious lobby and amazing terrace. You feel the hotel clean and modern. There is two parkings, avoid the one on the right of the entrance, located at the minus 4 and 5, extremely difficult access and exit especially if you have a large car.

I stayed for 3 nights on business. The hotel is a good average business hotel, with comfortable rooms, OK service, and reasonable breakfast. The location is close to a few bars, restaurants and small shops but is some distance from any of the main sights or activities in Porto. The highlight is the 'VIP' lounge on the 19th floor -...

We arrived at Porto Palacio Congress Hotel this morning and was totally blown away by the quality service. It's a beautiful hotel with a contemporary design. The staff are very friendly.

The Porto Palacio feels like a business hotel and there was a mix of either very friendly or off hand staff. Upon checking in we were told, in a way which suggested that the clerk was enjoying it, that our rooms were not available. Not very welcoming. We were also not offered the customary glass of port although the decanter...
