Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This was our second time to stay here. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and knew this was the place to stay in Porto! Yes there is construction but we were never in the room much. Other hotels had the same construction view so we ignored it. The hotel is situated in a great location so we could walk to the train station and around the city center. The hotel is beautiful inside and the room was too. The staff are very friendly and surprised us with champagne and sweets and even a hand written note for our anniversary! Breakfast was very good!

We stayed at the IC in Porto in early December which we booked through Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts. As mentioned by other reviewers, there is big, messy construction of a new metro station in the main square right in front of the hotel which is likely to go on for more than a year. It makes access to the hotel tricky, and there is some noise. However, that should not deter you from staying here if you get a room in the back overlooking the courtyard. The staff is doing a terrific job of minimizing disturbance to the guests and accommodating room requests. The service is excellent, and everyone from the doorman to housekeeping to the bartenders and front desk staff are friendly and helpful. (It was the doorman, Hugo, who had the best restaurant reccs!) Our room (king bed Classic) was plenty big and well-appointed. Breakfast was fine with both buffet and made-to-order. The hotel is very centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere. Despite the construction, the main square (Praca da Liberdade) which the hotel looks over is very impressive. Don’t avoid this lovely hotel because of the construction.

We really loved the IC in Porto. The location is great, walking distance to many of the points of interest in Porto. Our room was quite large and well decorated. It had a nice view of the main square. The front desk and service were quite attentive. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again when coming back to Porto.

I was incredibly impressed by the level of service provided at InterContinental Porto. Everyone was really friendly and focused on the guest. We had a really late check-in (early AM hours) and were treated with great hospitality from the moment we stepped into the hotel. The hotel arranged for an early morning taxi (4:00 AM) and, again, we were treated with great hospitality. The rooms are spacious and immaculate; the housekeeping staff is on top of their game. We selected a reservation that included the breakfast buffet which was amazing because it also included made-to-order breakfast foods. I injured myself (outside of the hotel) and the front desk offered to create an ice pack for me which was delivered to my room; this was above and beyond. At the time of our visit, the City of Porto was in the midst of an upgrade to the Metro. It didn't impact our stay in any way!

Superb hotel centrally sited for easy access to all Porto’s sights. At time of our stay, city works on upgrade to Metro right outside the hotel are an eyesore, but once inside there is very little to spoil your stay, and any noise is restricted to weekdays 8:00-17:00 with no weekend working. We were booked for a weekend city break so really were not inconvenienced. The hotel facilities were top notch, from classy decor throughout, comfortable beds in beautifully appointed rooms and great choice of breakfast. The bar staff were very knowledgable and helped us sample local Port wines, reception and restaurant staff were excellent and nothing was too icy trouble. They even put a card, sparkling wine and cake in our room for my husbands birthday. The small details made for a very luxurious feel to the experience and we would throughly recommend staying here.

My daughter and I arrived at this hotel on a rainy night and had a hard time finding the entrance due to the construction fence for the new subway line that blocked the front. Once we figured out where to park, we were met immediately by a valet who took over and expedited our comfort and convenience. The hotel is beautiful, the room very spacious and elegant, and the bar in the lobby a nice respite on a cold, rainy evening. We felt the valets, concierge, and front desk had only our comfort in mind with suggestions, directions, assistance, and a smile.

We were looking to take it pretty easy in Porto at the end of a longer trip, so we booked this swanky hotel right in the middle of town. And it delivered big time - the room was great, all of the services were very good, and we could walk just about everywhere wanted to go in town easily. The staff gets extra credit from us, though - they did all of the usual bells & whistles of arranging rides to the airport, moving our bags around, accommodating late checkouts, etc. But when we checked in, Bruno noticed from my wife's passport that it was her birthday - a few hours later, we found champagne & dessert in our room, along with a birthday card to her. When we made our way back down to the lobby later, everyone else on the crew knew to wish her a happy birthday, too. Very nice touch when you're in a place where you don't know anyone or speak the language!

I just finished a tour and wanted to treat myself to a great hotel in the center of Porto before I left. Unfortunately, between the tour transfer and the hotel I misplaced my bag with my documents, credit cards and cash. At first reception tried to be helpful and offered to contact the hotel where the tour group dropped us off. It took about an hour for them to tell me that the other hotel did not find my bag. Luckily, I was texting everyone and asked a friend staying at the other hotel to take a look. My bag was at their reception desk. Don't know how Intercontinental did not find that out or if they really tried. Reception was not going to let me stay the night without a credit card guarantee even though I had booked a nonrefundable room with a credit card. They would not accept US dollars. Luckily, I was able to uber to other hotel and recover my bag. My stay was uneventful after that EXCEPT that I had converted some dollars to euros as security deposit and when it was returned upon checkout, hotel tax was charged. WTH???!!!

Dear earntravel, Thank you for sharing your comments on your recent visit to InterContinental Porto - Palácio das Cardosas. Needless to say, we are disappointed to note a less than positive impression based on an unfortunate event unrelated to our hotel. Upon learning about your missing bag, our reception team indeed has tried to assist and has relayed the message given by the other hotel. We are very sorry to learn all the troubles you experienced during your visit to the heart of Porto. We have shared your review with all team so we can be better on a future occasion. Finally, similarly to other Hotels in Portugal, indeed a credit card to guarantee incidentals is required upon check in, and the tourism tax is charged upon check out (required by law). We remain at your disposal for any further comments or future assistance. Best wishes, Francisca Moreira Guest Relations Manager InterContinental Porto - Palácio das Cardosas
