This Holiday Inn was spacious and clean, having been bought from the Melia resort group three years ago. It is located across the river from Porto. The only problem we had was obtaining the hot water, but the hotel was prompt in remedying the situation as a prior guest had forced the hot water valve beyond its groove. Breakfast was... More

My stay at HolidayInn Porto Gaia came to be a very nice surprise. All the services worked extremely well. Particularly, the staff were absolutely nice and smiling. I had my dinner for room service.

Used this hotel for 2 nights on a business trip. Rooms - clean, comfortable Location - not central to Porto and not the nicest of areas. Food - breakfast not great, cold mushrooms. Staff- slow at reception, bar staff very nice. Overall I would live to visit Porto again to see more of the beautiful old city but I would... More

All the hotel staff (check in, breakfast, cleaning) have been very polite, helpful and responsive. The room size was very good and the room itself as well as the bathroom and all accessible public areas have been very clean. I consider the food quality (only breakfast used) as being very good. The Holiday Inn Porto Gaia has been my hotel... More

The level of everything, in this hotel, was acceptable (no special effects, but it does the job). The only seriously negative thing were the curtains in my room. I mean, wash it every now and then, Holiday Inn people...shouldn't be that difficult. Instead, it looked (and smelled) as if they haven't been washed since the very opening, some 20years ago:...
