How far is the Camphana train terminal from your hotel? Also, where is the nearest EuropeCar location?
Dear Basel12017 - Thank you for your interest in InterContinental Porto. Campanha station is a 10/15min away (by car) - from our property, that is located right in the city center - in Aliados Avenue. From the Campanha station you can easily get access to the center using the Metro or Taxi. You can also take the urban train from Campanha to Sao Bento station, which is a 5min journey and it will drop you right in front of InterContinental Hotel. For Europcar, you can find their welcome desk right inside the train station. Feel free to contact us for further necessary help, we look forward to welcoming you, Have a safe journey, Best regards, Joel Saldanha Duty & Quality Manager

"Pick any room. They are all good"
"If you want quiet ask for a room that's up high or looks out back."
"Double pane windows (which open so you can get fresh air) ensure quiet no matter where your room is located."
"Our rooms where just out of the elevator in front, and I must say we were very satisfied with them"
