With it's central location and opulent setting this is the place to stay in Porto. As a Spire Elite member we got upgraded to a Duplex Suite. The room was lovely but there was no view from the lounge. I would have like to see some of the other rooms. The staff were charming though and I can't fault the experience. Collapse

Stayed here for three nights with my family to see the Christmas lights , welcomed with a friendly smile & and the smell of a wonderful diffuser (Black Orchid)upgraded to a room facing the square the rooms are spacious with bath and shower , kettle in room , a little noisy in the middle of the night due to people going home but great for the atmosphere of being in the centre of things for people watching All the staff were very attentive calling you by your name , the breakfast was plentiful and well presented , the breakfast is held in the Astoria Restaurant located on a busy corner allowing again for you to feel the atmosphere of this wonderful city . The Hotel is well situated within walking distance of all the shops and about a 15 min walk down hill to the waterfront Porto is very hilly so be prepared ? There is plenty to see and do in Porto so you won’t get bored it’s a wonderful city and the Intercontinental is your perfect host if there was any thing to complain about it would be the lack of nibbles served in the bar with drinks in most 5 star establishments you expect it but at this hotel you have to ask !! Would I return yes of course I think we needed more that three days to take in all that Porto has to offer . Collapse

We have visited Porto and Douro Valley in December and stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The location is really perfect the hotel being located exactly in the main square and 50 m far from Sao Bento (art) train station. The old building of the hotel is amazing, rooms are perfectly decorated, large and offer very good facilities. So are also the bathrooms. All personnel was very nice and professional. For the negatives - those having sleeping problems due to noise should avoid the rooms facing the market (cobblestone is very noisy)/the price of the rooms is very high especially considering that no breakfast is included in the room rate. Otherwise, all is just perfect. Collapse

Overall the hotel was nice and in a great location. The room was large and the bed was comfortable. One thing that is very important to note is that the hotel turns the air conditioning off in the fall/winter. The room was SO HOT. Opening the windows is not really an option due to the street noise. The spa was fantastic and I highly recommend having a massage there. Room service was prompt and well presented. My biggest issues were exclusively with the reception staff who were rude and unaccommodating. 1) We arrived to Porto around noon. Our rooms were not ready, which was fine. We asked that the receptionist give us a call when the room was ready. A few hours later we had not heard from them. We stopped by the hotel. The receptionist rudely and without making any effort to actually check with housekeeping, told us that it would be at least another hour and half so we went to the port houses. 2.5 hours later, no one calls. We call to check and were informed that the rooms have been ready for a while, and there was no record of anyone calling us to notify. 2) The receptionist called us the night before checkout to ask if we would need a wake up call or a taxi. I informed her that we would need a taxi at 8:45AM and that we had four people and 6 bags. The next morning we get down to the lobby and there is one small car there for us. I informed the concierge that we would need a van, so they agree to call one. 15 minutes later, I asked when the car would be there. The concierge informs me that they are still working on finding one. At this point I was very displeased and asked that they get one van or two cars for us immediately. I asked why anyone even called to ask if we needed a car if they didn't note what I said. The concierge said that the receptionist called me the night before but didn't note that we needed a van. About 3 minutes later we got into two cabs, thus paying double. They were so careless that they didn't even bother to ask which bags belonged with which people. Luckily, it didn't really matter. Also luckily, we were taking a train, because if we would have been flying we probably would have missed the plane. No apologies or efforts to amend the situation. 3) I loved the scent of the diffusers in the hotel and ordered several of them which the concierge were supposed to ship to my home. It has been one month and I have not received the diffusers. I have called to hotel to attempt to get a tracking number, find out if they were ever shipped, or get my $523.91 refunded. I have been hung up on twice and am literally having to beg to have my call returned. Please be aware that this hotel's staff is completely unconcerned with the customer experience. They know people are going to stay at IHG hotels regardless of how rude and careless they are. Collapse
