            Staff where amazing. It is expected for a 5star to have helpful staff but everyone went above and beyond. A great hotel.

            Some things a bit ridiculously priced. 5Euro for an espresso is over the top.

          • Couple
            9.6

            Superb hotel, excellent staff with a wonderful all glass roof bar and terrace on the 19th floor. A short walk to the metro gets you into town in 15 minutes. Ignore exterior pictures, the interior is high end and the spa is excellent - worth spending some time relaxing. We aware upgraded to a Deluxe Room which are on floors 16-19 and have direct access to the roof bar. Worth the extra money. We ate at the Portuguese restaurant and the food was delicious supported by very attentive staff. I would certainly return on my next visit to Porto.

            Great hotel, everything was perfect. Nice touch the welcome porto at arrival. Wireless internet free. Didnt try breakfast as there were so many cheaper options in the area. Supermarket beside hotel, for fresh fruits or whatever else you want to buy.

            Only minor complaint was the rudeness of one of the staff at the swimming pool (the 'trainer' in the kids swimming pool). we complained about him, and the manager apologised personally with us. It was nice, but some goodwill gesture would have been appreciated to enhance our forgiveness of the matter.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            We arrived at the Palacio after a long, long day of travelling. We could not have asked for better service from the reception staff. The young man at the desk called housekeeping immediately to prepare our room, as we were early for check in, and showed us to the bar/lounge where we were able to order refreshments. Within a very short time, he delivered our room keys to us and we were shown to our room! Through out our stay, all staff was very pleasant and helpful....The Spa was wonderful....my husband and I found the time for a couples massage.....Sandra and Elena (?sp) were wonderful! The room service was also very good....excellent food and quick service. We have no complaints about our stay at the Porto Palacio!

            No complaints about our stay at the Porto Palacio!

            10.0

            Staff extremely friendly and willing to assist. Extra touches like getting welcome drinks from the bar for our young children whilst we enjoyed some port. Also gave children colouring sets upon arrival. Such little touches cost little but make your stay more memorable.

            Having to pay for car parking even though we knew before booking.

            professional helpful and kind staff, nice view from the rooms

            breakfast could be better, no fresh juices, only industrial bread, all a bit boring for a 5 star hotel. sauna area is very basic.

          • Couple
            9.6

            The room service (including the telephone assistant) was excellent.

            The hotel can improve with isolation, in order to keep a cooler temperature in bedrooms.

          • Older travelers
            7.8

            Nearness to the city center, comfort of the room, good mood of employees. Breakfast fair and good quality.

            8.8

            The best part was the unbeatable service

            The spa was closed and the fitness facility did not compare to the classiness of the hotel

          • Single
            9.6

            Friendly welcoming staff, clean and relaxing hotel with spa and gym facilities. The Staff speak fluent english and are very helpful. Rooms are spacious and very quiet..perfect for short getaway. There is a supermarket next door. The city of porto itself was surprisingly interesting and fun place to visit..one of my favourity places so far and I have travelled a lot in europe. Sav.

            The roof top bar is only open to general public after 1030pm. It should be open to everyone at all time, and of course the break feast should be served there rather than in the restaurant in the basement which was dark and clastrophobic.

            The staff were superb, kind caring and very attentive. The hotel facilites were excellent and the view from the rooftop restaurant was a really special treat.

            The hotel is not near the metro and is quite far from the city centre
