New hotel in Porto

Porto has a new luxury hotel. The InterContinental Porto-Palacio das Cardosas, which has just opened, is housed in a 200 years old palace on the city's main Liberdade square. It incorporates the Cafe Astoria – replicating the cafe which was part of the palace's ground floor at the start of the last century – with an outdoor terrace where guests can drink coffee and eat pastries. The hotel has 105 bedrooms, 16 suites, a gym and a “wellness centre”. Porto, Portgual's second city, lies on the Douro. Among its attractions are tours and tastings in the great Port lodges such as Sandeman, Cockburn and Taylor's.

When I saw their hotel, all I was able to say was 'wow'! It was so huge and full of elegant pieces and furniture just like those at the Merida luxury hotels.
