The hotel is conveniently located next to the metro and El Cortes shopping center, has a decent breakfast buffet with clean rooms and is situated in a relatively safe neighborhood. Having said that, the hotel requires a a major facelift - everything feels old and outdated.

We stayed 5 nights, first week in October out of 3 weeks in Portugal. Hotel is about 20 minutes walk south of Porto or 4 stops by Subway, which is just outside the hotel. Underground parking available at 7 Euros per day, access to highways very close and convenient. Our room on the 9th floor had a good view of... More

I am a female, traveling alone, and I loved this hotel. It's safe, clean, and elegant. The staff were great, really nice, helpful, and thoughtful. Everyone speaks very good English (I interacted with at least five different staff members during my stay and everyone was awesome). The perks are worth it too (including the free wifi). It's very well located,... More

Considering the price of the hotel it was excellent value. 3 mins walk from the ultra efficient metro system & very good wi fi in room. Had 3 beds in our room so although there was not a great deal of room at the end of the beds the extra bed meant there was room to put your things. Bathroom... More

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.
