Free wifi in the lobby. Located next to the famous El Corte Ingles (high end shopping store). Clip Hotel offers special priced delicious meals for their guests at El Corte Ingles. The hotel is a few steps away from the metro which runs directly into the historic center.

I went with my siblings for a 3 day trip. The hotel was nice and tidy and the staff very kind and spoke English well enough. We did have some problems with the wifi as it was very slow. The location was Ok and we did venture out quite far. Our rooms were nice, clean and modern.

Apart some noise from the busy street and the surface metro just in front, this hotel is a clean, friendly and enjoyable place to discover the city of Vila Nova de Gaia and O’ Porto, for a fair price. The hotel staff were great, kind and they were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and about sightseeing and orientation... More

Perfect location for exploring Porto and V.N. de Gaia because of the Metrostop around the corner. Nice staff and good beds. Breakfast good variety choice. Good price/quality balance. Recommended for short city trip.

Our stay in this hotel was really very nice . Not only was the location perfect for our plan to make use of the Hop on Hop off bus but the service was excellent.. Coffee and fresh fruit was available in the lobby and we could print our boarding pass for our flight to Brest. We arrived early and our... More

We got to stay at ClipHotel as a last minute thing. It was out of Porto, just a couple of metro station away from the city. Quite clean, nice and cheap. Beautiful breakfast. Just 2 minutes walk to the metro station and El Corte Ingles. Recommended!

I have never been to Portugal in my life before so this was an experience in the making. Cliphotel is located on the south east of Vila Nova de Gaia right next to a tram station. It is also on the tourist bus routes. When we arrived we were met with a great welcome from the receptionist who spoke excellent... More

I stayed in the Cliphotel recently and I have nothing but praise for it. Firstly, they had a deal where you get a 25% discount on your room if you book 60 days in advance. Even though I was slightly outside of this period, they still gave me the discount, which meant I only paid €40 per night for my... More

Great hotel. The rooms were decent-sized and clean - we stayed in one with two single beds, and spent less than $100 a night. I liked that they offered free refreshments in the reception area. Although the location was in suburban Vila Nova Gaia, it was a block from the light rail station which traveled directly to the Oporto City... More

3 stars hotel, 50 mts from El Corte Inglês and Subway. Excelente choice if you want to visit Oporto Caves and Ribeira. Rooms are small but very clean. Wellcome drink is always avaiable for guests and WiFi too.
