My wife and I spent two nights at the Intercontinental Palacio das Cardosas and found it absolutely great. The restoration work is simply fabulous, and our room (329) was wonderful. The sound insulation is absolutely amazing and, unlike what happens at most U.S. hotels, we barely noticed any sounds made by other guests. The hotel is conveniently located just 10 minutes away from the “Ribeira” pier. There is a parking garage right behind it and, through an agreement, hotel guests enjoy discounted rates for overnight valet parking (driving and parking in Oporto is often times an expensive liability). Our only complaint is about the hotel’s Wi-Fi service, which worked remarkably well in the lobby but was a complete let down in our room (could be a localized issue – we’ll never know).
