Whenever I go to Oporto, Porto Palácio is my favorite hotel. It´s location, in a business area of the city is very handy, as well as, the access to the main road to Lisboa (normally from where I come). It´s by far the hotel with the best offer of restaurants, from Japanese, to Italian, to typical Portuguese food. The rooms...

The hotel staff were courteous, friendly, very helpful and attentive. The whole hotel experience was luxurious and calming,just what is needed for a relaxing and pampered break. p.s. one needs to be fit to cope with walking up and down the steep hills but the transport was readily available to make exploring easier.

I stayed here on a short business trip and was very impressed overall. This is a classic corporate hotel where you find it difficult to really find any faults. I would assume is at minimum some 10-15 years old and as such they have kept it very well. Very friendly staff, clean fresh rooms with great views of town, good...
