“Stay next door in ibis 39 euros”
Reviewed January 19, 2012

Stayed here and worked nearby during mid January.
Stay next door at the Ibis for 20% less!
Surounded by main roads, can't walk to nearby 'attractions', tricky to get to unless you have a vehicle.
Sat Nav will be 100m or so out, just keep on driving forward and you'll get there. Free car park.
Rooms very warm/humid, management say they will sort it but they don't, they are saving money by not turning the aircondioning system on.
Pointless swimming pool in the winter.
Bar staff and other minions lovely.
Not treated well by the surly middle managers/managers, I will complain to the company about their attitude.
If you spend most of your time in Porto stay in Porto.

Room Tip: Nice view if you face west

The hotel was great for the price, large and clean rooms, but the matress.... I`d rather sleep on the floor! Breakfast just ok. The location is good only if you are travelling with a car. And beware of the adress, your GPS just won´t find it!

We sete in 3 on the room. The tire bed ia not comfortable. Vera clean. Good service. Fair price. Localization is very good but you need to have a car. Wireless internet does not work ir you stay on rooms at the ground floor far from the reception.

On the other side of the river Douro. Close to the bridge and the highway. Nice hotel with good facilities for children but a bit isolated. Good breakfast - 9 € per person extra - free for kids. Rooms could benefit from an upgrade although still in good shape.

We spent the night in this hotel 3 nights in early September. Nice big room, satellite TV, large bathroom. A very convenient location, between the Atlantic Ocean with sandy beach (walking distance 20 minutes) and the city of Porto. Near the hotel a large hypermarket (on foot 10 minutes). Before you can get to Porto by going to the bridge over the Douro river and go down there a bus to the center of Porto (€ 1.75 a trip). Porto city is very beautiful and original, very much, 3 days - was not enough for us.

Novotel Porto is the expected combination between money and quality.
Close to the centre, close to the Porto Wineries for tasting and learning all its secrets, easy to be reached from Lisboa and back-
Standard Novotel rooms, pool and restaurant, ideal for families.

Room Tip: Book a ground floor room
