Great location, top hotel
Location, style, concierge, comfort
we stayed here for 2 nights in september 2012. it was a fantastically located hotel, 10 minutes walk to the river, the bridge and the furnicular. it is up the slope so you can walk down and take the furnicular back for your day out (hills can't be avoided much in porto). the rooms were big and comfortable and the prices really reasonable at the bar for a night cap and also breakfast compared with the international norm, with the quality still there. the stand out was the concierge. he gave great restaurant recommendations both nights and directions around town and to the duoro when we left. we drove to porto from lisbon. there is convenient space out the front to pull up. parking was € per day but that was fine to safely throw someone the keys and get the car back smartly 2 days later. we got a good deal for our stay, so i cannot say how value stacks up against the rack rate.

Nr. 1 Hotel in Porto - und das auch völlig zu Recht!
Einfach nur perfekt. Vom check-inn über Freundlichkeit, Zimmerqualität und sonstiger Services. Alles in diesem Hotel genügt höchsten Ansprüchen. Wenn man was zu meckern sucht, könnte noch das Frühstück herhalten. Aber auch das wäre Jammern auf sehr hohem Niveau. Das IC Porto ist das beste Hotel der Stadt und das auch völlig zu Recht.

駅近くとは聞いていたものの、思ったよりも近く、逆に素通りしてしまうほどでした。 スタッフの方は皆、いつも笑顔で、私たちのことを気に掛けてくれ、とても気持ちよく滞在をする事が出来ました。 チェックインの際、日本とポルトガルのハーフの大変爽やかなスタッフの方にご担当いただき(お部屋のアップグレードもしていただきました。)、ポルトで日本語を話す方と会えると思っていなかった私たちはとても驚き、また、やはり心強かったです。 到着した当日は夕食をホテルのレストランで取りました。お食事はモダンなポルトガル料理で、落ち着いた雰囲気の(しかし1Fにあり、リベルダーデ広場に面しており、窓側の席に座った私たちは時々行き交う人々と目が合う時があったり、通りすがりの子どもから手を振られたりしました。)中でゆったりと食事を楽しむことが出来ました。サーブの方々の接客もとても暖かく感じが良いものでした。お部屋はクラシックな雰囲気で大変美しく、ベッドも寝心地がよかったです。ポルトは2泊しましたが、もっと滞在したい、また訪れたいそんな気分になったのもこのホテルの魅力が大きいです。

部屋が広くて機能的で快適に 過ごせました
予約時にハネムーンと伝えていたら、チェックインの時に「おめでとうございます」と言ってくれたり、部屋にケーキを運んでくれたりと、お祝いしてくれる気持ちがとっても嬉しかったです。 部屋は広くて綺麗でした。また、バスタブとトイレが別々になっていたり、アイロンがあったりと機能的でとても快適に過ごすことができました。 駅からも近くて、どこに行くにも便利です。 ホテルのレストランを利用するとワイン(ボトル1本)のサービスもあります。料理もおいしかったです。 ポルトに来ることがあれば、また滞在したいお薦めのホテルです。
