We stayed for 4 nights whilst travelling around Portugal. We had a good view from a room on a higher floor, as we had requested. The room itself was fairly standard and had all we needed, but a bit on the small side. There is an extra charge for the safe, which we had not had to pay elsewhere, but... More

We stayed at The Galé Hotel Porto at the beginning of September. The location of the hotel is convenient and it is possible to walk to the city centre and the metro is at the corner. We payed for a superior room on the executive (17th) floor, but it turned out to be a standard normal size room. The room... More

This is a good choice to stay 2 min from metro (24 augusto) and 10-15 min walking from city center and historical sites. Room is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is very good (many choices of hot and cold). You can reach it by metro from the airport (1,85 euros) or from both train stations of Porto (1,35 euros). By taxi,... More

It is a nice, clean and quiet hotel, located near the metro station (24 de Agosto). In 10-15minutes you can walk to several nice restaurants. In front of the hotel there is a supermarket that can be quite handy. The room size is OK, with a nice bathroom and comfy bed. The breakfast is nice with a lot of variety.... More

We stayed for a couple nights. The hotel is located close to a metro (Tram - Campos 24 agosto station) line so was fairly easy and cheap in from the airport. That's about all the good I can say about it. It is a lengthy (20-25min) walk uphill from downtown Porto/ Douro. Upon arrival we checked in and caught the... More

You must add : 7.5 euros for parking 11 euro per person for swimming poll access (and sauna, spa and gym. room). Half price for children (see beelow) 5 euros for wifi in your room (free at the reception) Not for children (only admitted at the pool between 10h30 and 17h30) I will NEVER go again in theses hotels.

The hotel is fair comfortable, but need more service, mainly in the bar, where the clients have to wait for the bartender to show up. Also it is not good policy, in my point of view, to charge a fee for using the swiming pool. Fair breakfast.
