We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found the room to be spacious, spotless and comfortable. The staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly and we loved the rooftop terrace. I agree the spa is a little dated, but loved the pools and the gym is huge. I also was lucky enough to get two sessions of reformer pilates with Emanuel which I really enjoyed. It's a fair walk down to the port/old town area, about 40 mins but we managed it every day preferring it to the metro, which was about 10 mins walk from the hotel.

We really enjoyed our 4-day stay. The room was very comfortable, the service was great and the staff were welcoming and always helpful. The location was ideal for us as we liked the hour long walk to the ocean and 50 minute walk to the city centre.

The 360 degree terrasse with a beautiful view is not open during the day!!! See below further information. Max. a 3 star hotel. Very old pool (30 years). AC did not work properly, safety box did not work..

Room Tip: 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.

This hotel is situated in the business district of Porto.
The room is a good size, as expected you will find all the mod cons, aircon, flatscreen tv, radio, mini bar, safe, kettle, hairdryer, bathrobe, slippers and toiletries. Good wardrobe space. I would suggest to bring your own toiletries but otherwise it is all fine. The Spa is ok but needs a bit of TLC. The breakfast is served in a room on the lower ground floor and due to it's lack of windows feels very dark and dated. The breakfast itself is fairly basic during the week, during the weekend the options are slightly better. I think the best part of this hotel is the rooftop bar, the terrace has got amazing views over Porto.
The staff were very nice and helpful at all times and although there is nothing particurlarly wrong with the hotel it is in need of modernisation throughout.

Room Tip: The higher the better

We were very pleased at the quality of this five star hotel. Our rooms was great, with all the facilities one would expect from a five star European hotel. We also had an upper room on the 14th floor with an excellent view of the city. The hotel is not close to downtown, but this was just a short Uber ride away, and location was no problem at all. We enjoyed cocktails in the ground floor lounge which featured a live piano player every evening. We also had drinks and a meal in the 18th floor restaurant. This was good, if a little pricey.

Room Tip: High floors have great views, either side. Hotel is the tallest building nearby
