We enjoyed our one night stay in this lovely hotel. It is located in the heart of the city near the large square opposite the city hall. The staff was friendly and the concierge was particularly helpful when we had trouble with our rental car. The room was large and spacious with a large bathroom with a separate tub, full...

We really enjoyed our time here. Attentive and friendly staff made our stay memorable. Great room with great facilities and with great food too. In the right place for visiting Porto - as very central. Easy to get to Metro to get around the city.

The main reason for picking Palacio das Cardosas was the location - there really can't be any argument about this; it is bang in the middle on THE main square in the city. It has been renovated from an 18th Century Palace and is located right in the centre of Porto on the main square. It is right next to...

This is a great hotel, but the rooms at the front of the hotel face into a busy square & the corner rooms have one side facing the square & the other facing the station! We had the corner room on the 1st floor & it was like sleeping on the street (I am a light sleeper). We asked to...

The hotel has a grand look and is in a marvelous position. The staff were extremely polite, courteous and very attentive. Our room was extremely spacious, with king size bed and both shower and separate bath. The safe was large enough to store a laptop and the television was provided with umpteen satellite channels. Tea and coffee making and a...

Being a former palace, this is a place where you are treated like royalty from the moment you step through the revolving doors. The selection of food at breakfast and service is very high quality. The room allocated was a duplex type and made our stay feel even more special.

I wish I could give this hotel 10 stars! My husband and I stayed here for five nights recently and I just can't say enough good things about it! From the moment we walked through the doors, we knew it was going to be a great stay. The hotel is gorgeous and the room was amazing. The room was very...

Nice lobby interior and bar area. The location is convenient next to the train station and metro, except you have hordes of working class folks traversing the front of the hotel. During rush hour its almost impossible to access the property with a vehicle and the surrounding area. The square its on needs some upgrading and the properties fascade needs...

The stand-out characteristic of this centrally and well located hotel was the service - the best we've ever experienced and we've been fortunate enough to have travelled fairly extensively. From the receptionist during check-in to the housekeeping staff, the concierges and the restaurant assistants, they were all confident, kind and helpful, and always one step ahead without being overbearing. Well...

Stayed 2 nights in January. Very well located at the main square. Comfortable room and bathroom. Bedside table was a little bit far away from the bed. Very nice breakfast in the breakfast room. The staff were very friendly and helpful in giving direction and suggestion to go around the city.

“It is probably quieter at the hotel rear. We had two Juliet balconies so were exposed to city noise, especially on St Patrick's eve.”

“Please ask if any exterior rooms are available.... PS: the windows are soundproof, so no noise at all.”
