A beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Porto. The hotel staff were fantastic. We use Intercontinetal hotels a lot and this was absolutely one of my favorites. At check-in, we were upgraded to a deluxe (superior?) room on the 4th floor which was a suite. The downstairs had a sitting area and bathroom with sink, toilet and walk in shower. Upstairs (that’s right) was a bedroom with king bed and another bathroom with sink, toilet, bidet, and combination shower/tub. There were outlets in the bathroom for hair appliances as well as lots of outlets around the suite for plugging in all those electronics we carry with us. In the sitting area there was a “balcony” facing the square but unfortunately the view was blocked by a balustrade. There was a window in the upstairs bedroom that looked out at other buildings at the back of the hotel. We never could figure out how the room was situated in the hotel.

Caution, if you’re driving it is quite difficult to figure out where the hotel is located with a GPS - ours had quite a time getting us to the location. After driving around and around, we luckily just suddenly stumbled upon it. The hotel is located at one end of a very large square Praça da Liberdade. After that adventure, we let them park the car (25 euros/day).

Final note, upon check in, we were offered a discount on breakfast for 15 euros/person rather than the normal 22/person. It was well worth it - a great breakfast, and once again outstanding service.

The staff were amazingly kind and nothing was too much trouble. The hotel is truly memorable and we recommend this is the place to be in Oporto. The concierge suggested some wonderful restaurants and were very knowledgeable about the city and the guests needs.

The service, rooms, atmosphere, and style of the hotel is nothing less than you would expect from an InterContinental. Add to that the prices of Portugal, and it's a first rate experience that cannot be had many places around the world.
