First impression can suggest this is a typical business hotel. On further investigation it is pleasantly more than that. Relaxed but smart with lovely pool set in neat gardens it is a little gem. Free parking which in Porto is a bonus. It is over the Douro from central Porto but a short taxi ride will take you to the... More

Porto is definately a must to see Porto on any one's list! A magnificent city that oozes the mystique of most other cities. Accomodation was well situated with magnificent views and easy to reach destinations. Rooms good well kept somewhat dated which did not matter as they were comfortable and as it was you didn't stay there too long as... More

We had two rooms at this hotel for 3 nights while travelling around Portugal. The rooms that they gave us to begin with were on the ground floor just around from reception and they had not been updated and one had a window that wouldn't lock. Reception upgraded us straight away and were very efficient and friendly. The hotel is... More

This is a lovely hotel: great staff, spotless accommodation, nice grounds and pool. The location is great with easy access to town and beaches. It is 30-40 mins walk along the river to the port caves, about the same in the other direction to the start of 15km of beaches, and there is the option of taking the tiny ferry... More

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
