                  Good location - restaurant is good and staff very helpful indeed. This hotel is an excellent location and serves the business community as well as holiday stays

                  The writing desk is a little small and could be moved to the corner of the room - looking into the room leaving the plasma screen free for viewing from the bed area. This may be more logical space utilization and will make working a little more comfortable.

                  The attention of the Intercontinental Porto's personnel is excellent. You really feel like a vip. Hotel is brand new and very well located in the city center. Good design and room are big, clean and very comfortable. This hotel is a must and I will repeat in future visits to Porto. Congratulations.

                  We have stayed in dozens of hotels in France Spain and Portugal on this trip, the intercontinental has been the stand out . The gorgeous reception area and the fabulous rooms were matched by the quality of the staff. They were professional and at the same time personable. Their style in receiving new guests and even showing them to the room was excellent. They offered to print our boarding passes, and even offered to parcel some excess goods to send home. Apparently it only opened a year ago and they managed to retain an old world charm in a heritage building with a superb reproduction feel. The quality and thought put into such things as the bathroom fittings, curtains, linen, toiletries etc is second to none. Step outside the front door and you are looking down a beautiful town square, near to great shopping and backing directly on to the Old Town, and a pleasant five minute walk to the lively riverbank. The only thing we didn't enjoy was having to leave...and will we ever stay anywhere as nice !

                  I didn't like that the towels were so nice that I now have to go home and buy new ones !

                  This is the best hotel you could ever imagine!!! I've never had a bed so comfortable in a hotel. It's a little pricy, but it is worthy. I love everything about this hotel. It's close to everything, people are so nice, rooms are perfect.

                  Beautiful rooms in a fabulous historic building & great location. Rooms have every comfort expected of an international luxury hotel chain. Staff helpful & friendly, particularly the concierge who recommended 2 great restaurants for us. Lovely cosy bar for a night cap.

                  Breakfast very expensive and confusion about what is inlcuded in the 2 oprions. Wanted to charge us 24 Euro for cold breakfast including cereals, but after some discussion allowed us to pay 12 Euro which is the cost for the Continental breakfast.

                  Location is excellent, one of the buildings that actually defines city centre in Porto. Service is five stars, everything works perfectly, the staff is young and very efficient. The restaurant is probably the best in Porto centre.

                  Location is excellent, the building is really beautiful

                  Our room was so little. Tv was in a side wall, we made a reservation with view for the square and it wasn't true, it was a view for a lateral street. Breakfast was good but not excellent.

                  We had a marvellous time at the Intercontinental, with impeccable service and a willingness to do everything to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. From the concierge staff, especially Carla and Bruno, to Ana at breaKfast time and especially Francelina, who arranged a wonderful surprise to celebrate my wife's birthday, nothing was too much trouble. A big thank you to all in the Intercontinental for a very memorable three days!

                  Service and staff excellent. Position good but outlook from rooms described as garden view should have been described as building Site view.

                  Breakfast overly expensive.

                  The location was excellent...50 m from the San Bento train station...just walk across the street to your hotel. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about how to go your destinationis. The room was spacious enough and quiet. The price for this 5 star hotel was much higher than I had paid for 4 star wonderful hotels in Lisbon and Aveiro.

                  If price didn't matter I would answer the following question with a yes
