It's a five star! We stayed there for two nights and enjoyed it. The rooms are clean, service is good and staff was friendly and understands English. Free wifi and fast. A supermarket and a good restaurant next door, which are very convenient.

This is a true 5 start hotel. It's a modern looking hotel with excellent decoration and very helpful service. I booked a simple single room. It was huge. It was clean, having a great view to Porto city (It was at the 12th floor) and with great attention to detail. The first hotel room I've ever stayed that has place...

Arrival to the hotel was very promising: perfect service at check-in, including a glass of Porto wine. The rooms themselves are very comfortable, including very large and nicely hard bed, but the furniture is a bid dated - nothing to worry about, but you can see the hotel is no longer new. The fitness area is large, with everything you...

One of the largest hotel rooms I've had in Europe. Extra big bathrooms with two sinks and separate WC for toilet and bidet. Very comfortable bed and high quality linens. Location is okay. Well outside the old city but attractions are accessible. Breakfast choices are good. Exceptional health club and poo. Coulda been 5* but the carpet looks worn and...

“The suite was very dark. The ac did not work properly. The light in one bath went of and one. One chair was broken. There is only a free waterbottle on the first day. The pool is 30 years old and no windows. Same with the breakfast downstairs: no windows. With ckeckout they 'force' you to take their hired taxi with no taxometer. Much more expensive than normal taxi. At the reception they can not even tell you were to rent a biceycle close by. After 5 days there was still this dead moth on the bathroom floor. The safety box did not work. After reparation the door card did not work. The price was very high: 250,-- for a suit. We have been in many 5 star hotels all over the world, but the Porto Palacio is max. a 3 star hotel. ”
