“good location for beaches and porto”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

staff are very helpful and in our case responded weel to a problem wiht aircon.You really need a car as you are in between the beaches south of Porto and the city centre.I would not recommend eating at the hotel but there a lots of restaurants associated with beaches to the south.Beaches to the south are best for sunbathing and have great cycle paths and boardwalks.The best sand for paddling and swimming are on the northern beaches at Matoshinhos and Leca.In summary a good central point for sightseeing .

Nice reception staff, rich breakfast. Actually as in all hotels of this chain. I didn't rate the hotel as "exellent" only because of location. You can reach Porto just by taxi even it is not cost a lot.There is a xbox in lobby which brings a lot if fun for children. And also one small fault that bar is closing near midnight.

The service , the bed , breakfast amazing and dinner excelent also.
The place has a pool also... I did not use but sitting outside on the garden was real nice.

In the morning you get up for a nice breakfast ,then go visit the wine cellars close by and walk around the beautiful Douro river you have a fantastic time to remember..

We stayed at the Novotel for one night and found that it offered great value for money. Clean and modern rooms, a bit far from the centre of town but pleasantly walkable in less than an hour. Taxi ride affordable. Offers quick getaway with proximity to motorway. Bed comfy, hotel quiet and breakfast adequate. Would stay there again!

Stayed here for 1 night on our way to Algarve because Son wanted to do the Porto stadium tour, and Daughter wanted to do the Lisbon stadium the next day. Location was excellent for driving into the city and hotel is very easy to find.
The hotel and grounds were immaculate, and free WiFi throughout the building.
Pool was very clean and welcoming, bar & breakfast service was excellent & very reasonably priced. We have stayed in quite a few Novotels over the years & this was the best.
Would highly recommend for a visit to Porto.

I expected bog standard / basic Novotel. This otel was good enough to spend a long holiday! Although very compact, it offered everything you could possibly need on your holiday.
Super pool area, great relaxing Bar - I thoroughly recommend.

Room Tip: Some guests experienced problems with their air con, filters needed cleaning. My room was 100% fine...
