the Novotel is situated in an area close to one of the bridges on the south side of the river. It is just outside the city limits of Porto but it's close enough. The Novotel is situated in a cluster of some 5 hotels that are basically sharing the same parking. Walking though the entrance, the atmosphere is friendly and the place is clean. Not sure though where they got the 4 stars from. The hotel is clean but basic. We chose the Novotel as we could get a family room of 4 at a decent price. Family room means that there is a sofabed next to the double bed in a room that is no different in size from a regular room.
The garden and the swimming pool are actually quite nice and made a great relax after a hot walk through the city. Breakfast was no great event, but there was enough food and given the price of 80 euro per night, we did not complain!
The price, pool and child friendly atmosphere really makes this hotel earn it's points.
it takes 5 mins by car to get into the centre. A navigation systems makes it easy to find your way around the area. tip: Go for the evening down into the port for some great small restaurants. a full meal including drinks will cost you a max of 15 euro. Not many tourists and great to walk though small streets with bbq's on the sidewalk that prepare the catch of the day!
