The hotel itself is excellent and could be considered a luxury hotel. The staff are very pleasant and the rooms are very comfortable. Inside the rooms are fully equipped bathrooms which are very clean and have things like complimentary slippers and shower gel etc. Despite that I found the pillows too soft and therefore not a great night's sleep.

Very nice atmosphere. A small kids corner with books, games and a Xbox 360 console. What another console with other game. Nice place for kids... More

This hotel has awful service, is out of the way (and much more then a 6 euro taxi ride away from the city center as earlier stated in the reviews), is noise, and has incredibly uncomfortable beds. No free breakfast and you have to pay to use the phone inside of your room. The staff is lazy and then when... More

There are some accommodations in the hotel (swimming pool, large chessboard, Xbox for Children) which we made use of due to the excellent weather. We ate in... More

We stayed at the Novotel Porto Gaia hotel on August 17th for a week. The hotel is great especially because we were on a small budget. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious and modern. The hotel benefits from a lovely pool area and garden which is great especially when the weather is lovely and warm. The... More

The staff are great. The room was comfortable but noisy - sea view but over entrance porch. Taxi ride to Porto - reasonable, about 6 euros. A free bus to Cortes Ingles shopping store - only one back a day - and it's not very central! We walked down many, many steps (and back) to the village but only one... More

Arrived at the hotel following an overnight stay in Lisbon. The hotel is comfortable with good size room. Overslept for breakfast after the previous days travelling however spent a good couple of hours by the pool before leaving. Nice pool and surrounding gardens including an oversized garden chess board game

We have been in this hotel 3 times before, so we knew the location. It is very conveniently positioned, at a walking distance to main points of interest in Porto (Porto Wineries, the Ribeira wharf, restaurants, etc.). The hotel is clean and the staff very nice. The only inconvenient is that the facilities are in need of refurbshiment, being a... More

The hotel is situated between big roads a little away from town centre. You have to take a taxi if you want to go in to town. It's however quite cheap . The hotel is a good choice for families since it has a pool and a playground area. Nice to rest after a dy with sightseeing in Porto. Room... More
