4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for 2 nights in April 15. The hotel is situated about 3 km south of the city and is not ideally suited if you are planning on using it for a base to see the city unless you are prepared for a 15 minute walk to the metro station or want to catch a cab into town. That... More

Holiday Inn Gaia is a very nice hotel. It has a modern touch with a nice reception area with a nearby Bar and Restaurant. Rooms are comfortable and corresonds well to the Holiday Inn concept. What makes the difference in this hotel is however the staff. From the first moment of arrival where Sr Baptista made all the difference, all... More

If you want to be in the centre of the of the old town of Porto then the Holiday Inn is not a good choice. It is in fact 2-3km on the other side of the river in Vila Nova de Gaia, however, does offer good panoramic views of Porto should you book a river view room. The hotel is... More

Stayed only one night, but the bed and the room was very comfortable and clean. Since is a tall building you may expect a clear view. The staff is polite and helpful. The breakfast have a huge variety of good quality products, one of the best hotel breakfast that I've had.

This hotel was very reasonably priced. Helpful, friendly, English-speaking staff. Lovely decorations, large rooms. FABULOUS view from 20th-floor suite. Unfortunately, not within walking distance of shopping or restaurants. On-site restaurant nice, but pricey. Must take metro to the downtown area.

Great hotel and value for money: - Polite staff - Cleanliness - Food options on the restaurant - Friendly environment Great for business as the hotel is located outside town with easy access to the main motorways.

My favorite view from this side of the river to Porto, by night and day One of the best breakfast I had in hotels. The staff and the view is great, as an active person and a sport lover, could be nice to have more treadmill in the gym, just in case the weather outside.

My good friend Jose booked us in here, and the rate are very competitive. But what brought the value to mind was not so much the price (cheap as it was in European terms) but the service. The staff were superb, and the rooms were decent and clean. I would go there again without question. By the way, the bar... More

I stayed at this hotel for almost 3 weeks while being on a business trip in Porto. The hotel is located in Gaia, so it's a good fit if you have work to do in this part of the city. Prices were really good, around 55EUR/night (incl. breakfast). Hotel is clean, warm, in a very good shape. If you get... More
