Had a brilliant two weeks here. Clean facilities, helpful staff. We didn't eat in the hotel in the evening due to the extensive range of fish restaurants in the local area. Swimming pool was pleasant and you could always find a lounger. This hotel is not a sit for two weeks and sunbathe, it's a good base to go off... More

Staying as a family of 4 in one room we were very impressed with the standard of the hotel. It was immaculately clean, some of the decor was dated but by no means shabby. It is not a package holiday type hotel, more suitable to independent travellers, which perfectly suited us. There is a mix of holiday makers and business... More

We have stayed for four days here and we are happy and content with the way how clean our room is, how friendly the staff is and the closeness to the town where all the Porto Wine shops and museum is. The breakfast is good which you have a lot if choices of.

The room was nice and clean, They have fabulous breakfast buffet, even gluten free muffins are on the menu. The location of the hotel is not very fortunate, if you are traveling by foot, since it is in-between highway and main roads, therefore getting there by foot is only possible from the riverside, but uber ride for 2,5 EUR (lol)...

Novotel is one of the most economic options near the wine lodges of Porto. It's conveniently located on the highway and with a parking lot, it's a great place to rest before heading into the city. It's on the side of the wine lodges, which makes it easy to take one's own car for wine tasting sessions and buy back... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the overall service was excellent. Our room was clean and tidy. The location was good with easy access into the centre of Porto. The food was excellent and I would highly recommend this hotel.

We have just returned from a fab week at this hotel. After reading some reviews we were a bit worried about being in the middle of nowhere. You can take a taxi to Cais de Gaia which cost no more than €5. There are lovely bars & restaurants here with great views of Porto! Saying that we spent most days... More

This hotel comes highly recommended. The reception is staffed by friendly and competent people who advised us on great local restaurants that we would not have found on our own. The breakfast is high quality, the pool is large enough, and the family rooms are great value for money. We had a rent-a-car so the location a little outside of... More

Just nicer cleaner and more serviceminded. Nice place just outside the innercity, but only a few minuttes away from the innercity by taxi which only will cost you about 6-7 euro. First night we tried the barbeque buffet, it was perfect! Breakfast is ok

The room is big and roomy. With an outdoor swimming pool, you can cool yourself down after a hot Summer day. If you are driving, there is a shopping mall round the corner. Parking is free. Front desk staff are helpful. There are many facilities for kids to spend their time. That is the reason why many families choose to... More
