“The InterContinental Porto–Palacio das Cardosas has got it all: location, luxury, and an intriguing history to boot. Ideally situated on the city’s main square, the hotel is within walking distance of major cultural highlights as well as lively restaurants and nightlife.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Porto.

Frommers review:

“Once a convent, then the manorial abode of a business magnate grown rich in Brazil, this 18th century neo-classical building is a Porto landmark. It lies at the foot of Avenida dos Aliados, Porto’s equivalent of Time Square or Piccadilly Circus.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Porto.

Telegraph review:

“The five-star InterContinental lies in the heart of Porto’s historic centre and is the gem in the city’s accommodation crown. As a converted monastery-cum-palace, the hotel exudes character, and when paired with the staff’s diligent hospitality, it offers an outstanding all-round experience.”
