“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Stayed here as a family for 4 nights in May. The location next to the metro is quite convenient for getting about in Vila Nova de Gaia and Porto. It's also close to the high-way for those with a car wanting to go further afield.
The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are not very big, but are cheerfully furnished very clean. For breakfast there is a reasonable selection buffet which is kept well-stocked till the end.
All in all a very good experience

Room Tip: Low-numbered rooms are on the front of the building and get a bit more noise form the street.

Everything you need for a city stay. The rooms are basic but very clean, staff were helpful. Adequate breakfast with good coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. Well positioned with metro 2 minutes walk away but it is easy to walk into Porto over the bridge which has spectacular views from it!
We would stay here again.
Only downside to staying in Gaia is the lack of restaurants.

Room Tip: Our room was on the eight floor so we had good views, lifts are tiny!

Definitely good value for money! Location is perfect, if you want to stay in Gaia: just opposite a metro station and El Corte Ingles shopping centre, as well as the highway to Lisbon. The rooms are clean and confortable, though not sound proof. The breakfast (included) is more than acceptable for the price of the room. Overall, a very good 3 star hotel.

I did stayed around 10 nights in this hotel in December, 2012, visiting relatives nearby. It was a very nice experience, the room is confortable and not small and the breakfast is excellent! Very friendly and helpfull staff - they make guests feel very confortable. The lounge is cozy, have a computer with high speed internet and a small bar with enough drinks, fruits and coffee. There are also magazines and tv.
I recommend it, it's good value for money. Very close to shopping mall El Corte Ingles and MTR.

Perfect location for traveling in Porto. 60 meters or so to the Joao de Deus metro station. About 60 meter to El Cort Ingles, the biggest shopping center in Porto. The people who work in Clip hotel is always helpful and nice. The breakfast is not the best, but for the price it's really wort the money. Same thing with the bed, it's hard as rock, but this way you vake up early to see the wonderful city of Porto. I know I will stay at this hotel the next time I visit Porto.

I had great expectations for this place as it has great reviews and looks superb from outside. The rooms at a first glance look cosy and clean and you get a good feel about the place. That is until you try sleeping! The bed was so hard that I may as well have slept on the floor! The pillow was just as hard and felt like it was filled with sand. If you like a hard bed then this will suit you down to the ground unless of course I am in the minority in liking feathers beneath my head when I sleep or even something similar. The bathroom was cramped with no room to move about although the shower itself gave you a good hot soaking which you will need to loosen up your neck muscles in the morning. The breakfast was a self service buffet and the food was fresh. Don´t expect an English breakfast though. It´s basically croissants, ham, cheese and fruit. Fresh juice and coffee etc. If you are claustrophobic stay away from the lift, it´s like a coffin! The B&B in the centre is a better hotel and is closer to the tourist spots so I would recommend that place instead!

Room Tip: Try another hotel or ask for a softer pillow if one is available. Somethin I wish I had tried but I...
