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

Clean, tidy and well organised hotel. Outdoor pool kids loved and the wii in reception kept them busy too. Stay as had very early flight and this hotel is about fifteen minute drive away from airport. Tried to use room service but gave up as they couldn't speak any English at all, so with my limited Portuguese wasn't really sure... More

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.
