This hotel is perfect for the service offered and the restaurant. Their breakfast is perfect with the best fresh squeezed orange juice and homemade croissants. Prices are extremely fair for any meal you decide to make at the hotel. The rates are fair too with free parking lot.

If the kids are happy in the hotel, then usually the parents are too. And Novotel usually delivers in this respect. The swimming pool, large garden with the playground, X-Box, yes mainly X-Box. We loved the cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel in overall. The breakfast choice is good, but a bit boring if you stay for longer. Nevertheless,... More

Good relation price/quality, but an average hotel.nothing to complain. Is a regular hotel, but we 2 strong points. A good breakfast and free car parking. One point down, if you have business in Oporto city in the morning you must be prepared to take some time on the traffic. .

We stayed here for a family visit to Porto and the Novotel in Gaia was absolutely fine value for money. As other reviews already state the hotel is in Gaia and not in Porto itself. It´s up on a hill just after the Ponto Arrabida and has some nice views - both to the Atlantic and to the Douro river.... More

We stayed at the Novotel for a week in October 2015 and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is very well set out with a decent pool (shame it was wet and windy during our stay), games consoles to keep the children entertained in the evenings, a decent bar area and a great little restaurant. The food in the restaurant was... More

We stayed for two nights. The lobby is lovely and the reception very helpful. The room was not as nice as we expected although it was clean and quiet. I would rate this a good three star hotel and not a four star. The location is good, especially if you have a car. It's easy to get back and forth... More

Very good: Cleanliness, staff, breakfast, garden, swimming pool. The hotel is quite good as a 3-star, though certainly not 4-star. Location: There is free car parking, so that's good. There is no metro nearby, by bus, you could take either 907 or 902 to go to Porto (Boavista), and then change to another bus 303 to go the old town... More

We had a one night stay here, on our way to a villa we had booked further north. Our stay could not have been better. We had two lovely rooms. We arrived and had lunch by the pool. The lunch was fresh, and tasty, service was excellent. The next morning we had a relaxed breakfast, more swimming. The pool, though... More
