This is one of 3 star Novotel (they're mostly 4 stars), but it was an excellent value for money. The room for 4 (2 adults + 2 chd) WITH breakfast costed us 49 euros per night. It is really a bargain. The minus of this hotel is it's difficult to reach location (which didn't affect us, since we had a... More

Slightly outside inner city center but easy access with taxi from hotel. Just need to wait 5 minutes after that reception called the taxi company. Nice main hall. Very children friendly. Nice breakfast.

After spending a week 100 miles up the Douro which has no infrastructure at all for tourism (unless you are on a 200 bedroom hotel boat...soul-less) we were delighted with the Novotel. Ok so it's 5 euros in a taxi to get to the city but by crikey what value for money this place is.We paid about 70 euros for... More

I stayed at the hotel for two days. The room was nice. There was a double bed and a sofa. Shower and good services and clean. Nearby the hotel has beautiful views of the Douro River entering the ocean. Rich breakfast and nice staff. The hotel has a large garden with a nice pool. The only problem, the location of... More

Great for families. Beds are getting outdated, but rooms overall are excellent. The hotel location and facilities are also very good. Usually front desk staff is nice. Sometimes you'll encounter someone who probably isn't happy about his/her life and it shows (:-)). Worth booking rooms on last floor: 4th. I have stayed in 408 and 412. Great views of the... More

My dad took me here with the idea of two nights here and then two nights in the city centre at the Mercure. It took 20-30 minutes drive from the airport then you need taxis to get to the city as it's NOT central and has nothing of apparent interest nearby. I had a beautiful sea view in my huge... More

This is a pleasant hotel in Vila Nova de Gaia, across the Douro river from Oporto. Although it is difficult to find even with a GPS (it is off the Arrabida bridge), it is surprisingly pleasant for a short stay (ours was just one night so there were facilities we didn't use). Staff at reception were nice and professional; our... More
