TripAdvisor reviews and photos helped me to choose the Grande Hotel do Porto to a 3-day touristic stay (16th-19th February 2012). Through the hotel website, I booked a Romantic Package to me and my wife, that included free upgrade to a suite, a bottle of spakling wine and chocolates in the room, 5 O´Clock tea (tea and scones with jam...

A very comfortable hotel in a great location with a lobby floor that looks like a movie set for a 19th Century film about the rich and famous. The hotel is excellent value for the money with the location being the premier shopping street in Porto and many restaurants nearby. Easy to walk to most of the old town sites... More

Stayed one night too long in the most dreary room imaginable. Booked late so no doubt only the worst rooms were available but it was late and we needed a centrally located hotel with onsite parking. The bathroom in partucular was appalling and although quite large was very poorly appointed and the linoleum floor was in a very bad state... More

We can but agree with some of the other recent reviews. The location in the centre of Porto is excellent. The lobby area leading to lounges and bar are decorated to a warm and comfortable classic style. The large dining room has lovely chandeliers, lots of glass mirrors and a fine stucco ceiling. Usually my wife and I do not... More

The location of this Classic hotel in Porto its great. The public areas are fantastic, but the rooms are poor and not so confortable as public areas. Professional staff, but they can be more customer oriented.

I always read the reviews when choosing a Hotel and this one had some of the best out of the hotels I was looking at - However it exceeded my expectations! The reception staff are so friendly and cannot help you enough. We stayed in a large room on the first floor (suite) and it was lovely. Really nicely decorated... More

Good hotel, central location. Staff friendly and helpful. Decor typically Portuguese, rather dark in lobby and bar area. Bedrooms clean and simply furnished. Restaurant was nearly always empty but this was low season. Had breakfast whilst there, this was adequate but not extensive. We did eat in the restaurant on 2 evenings, the menu was average and not particularly to... More

The lobby and bar areas certainly have the wow factor and the location is great and central, very easy to find from the metro and within easy reach of all the sights of Porto. The standard room was a little on the small side but made up for it with a huge bathroom. The room was very clean and reasonably... More

Excellent Hotel, well placed in the centre of Porto. Rooms were very clean and staff were attentive and helpful. It is a short walk to many attractions, but beware it is a very hilly City. The Metro line is 2 minutes walk away and is fast and clean. The Breakfast was ample if slightly boring. The decor of the Hotel... More
