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 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

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.

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
