Was good treatment I booked without breakfast because I don't eat breakfast and I just took a coffee one morning and they charged me a complete breakfast . Other than that it's all ok .. be careful that's all

Friendly, easy checkin, very spacious room in 15th floor, wonderful view, very comfy mattress, do not miss out to visit the last floor with a small but nice open terrace with excellent view. Be aware that it's only open evenings! Bar very nice too, but could be anywhere ... attractive price for one night!!

All the hotel is great, but I would like to enhance: the service, very good rooms and the funtastic restaurant&bar at the rooftop of the building, with a great view of the city, river and sea. Perfect to have a nice glass of port wine, with friends and a fubtastic view.

The Hotel has modern facilities and the room i was in was very good. Hotel staff is generally friendly but to a certain extend unattentive. Sitting in the (beautiful) roof top bar can take some time to have someone passing by to accidentally get an additional order. Breakfast at the room was served perfectly on time and in excessive extend. Did not try the Spa. Compared to international standard 4 stars is reasonable and would not raise expectations too high.

Stunning hotel with great staff and excellent customer service. I travel to Porto for business for 1 night every month and will not consider booking another hotel! Highly recommended and to top it off it has a stunning view from the terrace!

Porto Palacio Congress Hotel and Spa is living up to its promise of top quality five-star hotel. With all convinient and stylish rooms, the hotel offers great value for money. Instant service and staff ready to help. No guest is left for their selves. Unfortunately I did not got to eat at the hotel. Whilst everything looks good, everything is good!

When it happens, it's a pity: staying in a nice city for professional purposes and forced in daylong meetings… Porto Palacio, at least, supports with good service and a practical attitude your requirements and makes it easier. Otherwise, a standard international nothing-to-complain-about hotel for professional. Do not expect flair or romance: plenty of alternatives for this in Porto, once you cross the river or decide for a downtown, old style location.

On a family trip for my fathers 80th birthday we stayed at the Porto Palace. The staff were extremely attentive without being intrusive. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were extremely comfortable and upto date. Breakfasts were superb. Many thanks for a great stay - we will be back.

This hotel is a true gem, from its wonderful, helpful staff to the truly amazing SPA and its staff to the rooftop bar, it just exceeded all expectations. We often undervalue the staff but this is an example of where everyone we met from the doorman to the breakfast lady to the reception could not do enough for you and happily so. It really makes for a wonderful stay feeling you are being looked after. The room was good - large, clean and well spaced. I really, really, really enjoyed my stay and hope to come back one day not only to the hotel but to see more of Porto.

The Hotel is very well situated, with easy access to all points of interest of the city. The fantastic "casa da Musica " is very close and worth a visit. The hotel is tastefully decorated and gathers all necessary faciliades for a pleasant stay and the staff is very friendly and informative. Be sure to visit the Serralves House and its gardens and take time to discover the new life of this fantastic city that has just woken up to the tourist world
