The hotel was quiet, clean and comfortable. Staff were very helpful. However, the hotel is a good 10 minutes walk to the edge of the town centre though if you use Hop on/off buses one does come to the Hotel at 10.00 am. Whilst all the staff were good I would particularly like to thank Marina & Anna for their... More

The hotel is of modern design and over twenty storeys tall, it is surrounded by modern low rise buildings, near a bus stop and about 25 minutes walk to town. Whilst the area is not the best, we never felt threatened or uncomfortable walking around even at night. It is like much many parts of Porto, neglected, run down and... More

We've stayed in Villa Gale before and I can honestly say that from all of them the Porto one could do with a major refurbishment. Bathrooms are old as well as some of the furniture in the bedrooms need to be replaced. Air conditioning units are the old style and make a lot of noise. Breakfast was good, lots of... More

Stayed in July 2016 for 1 night for business, in a standard room. Haven’t been at this hotel for a couple of years but it is always pleasant to be back. It is a big lively hotel, with lots to do if you are travelling alone (or not). Hotel isn't new but still very comfortable and up to date. Standard... More

We spent 1 nights in August in the Vila Gale and were very impressed with the room, breakfast and bar. Breakfast was incredible and was included in the room price.
