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... More

We enjoyed our short stay in this hotel. I like any hotel that provides complimentary robes & slippers in your room during your stay ! The outside architecture is modern and the hotel is located in the business district.

Good hotel for business travel or for conference. It is located outside of the old part of Porto and from the River, so it is not the best choice if You really want to feel atmosphere of Porto.

Porto Palacio is located half way between the beach and the city centre; good location but not walking distance to either.
