Novotel Porto Gaia

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

clean hotel, pleasant staff however as Air Conditioning was not switched one felt hot. they don't even have table fans. only solution was to open window & then was noisy due to traffic on the road. money spent was not worth due to this reason

Located a bit fr from Porto, so if are not coming by car, the location is not really touristic. The hotel needs renovation and it’s visible everywhere but it’s compensated by great service, especially reception. The guy who worked on the 16.03.18 was really friendly and helpful. Also other people in the restaurant. Very good breakfast with solid choice and quality. Free WiFi and parking, outdoor swimming pool,kids playroom. Overall recommended

A wonderful and well situated hotel( if you have a car) , excellent value for money. Make sure you have breakfast, it is excellent. The staff were very friendly and helpful and gave us some advice about what to do in the area. We have already been twice to this hotel and will certainly come again in the future. A perfect stay.

we had a good experience , the staff was nice , the breakfast was excelent, fantastic . The location is good , not so near at historic center but essy to go. there are a shopping and restaurants near .Quiet place , so calm night .

We had a good welcome, a room that can accommodate the whole family is the best thing about this hotel. But, we think the breakfast was a bit disorganized, many people and few tables and only one coffee machine.

Perfect location for a short break or holiday. The room was a lovely size. I Unusual to have a bidet in the bathroom. The downside was the disposal cups and wooden stirrers for hot drinks. Buffet breakfast was great, sausages were like spicy, garlicky chipolatas which were tasty.

stayed here with friends for 4 nights in June. was lucky to get a room with a pool and sea view. the hotel was spotlessly clean, comfortable and in a nice quiet location. the staff were extremely helpful too. The garden and pool areas were lovely and clean and pool towels were provided free of charge. A short taxi ride from Porto centre but we didn't have a problem with this. Breakfast was a lovely all you can eat buffet which was very good value. We also had the buffet lunch on one day, and again, lovely food and a good price. I would have no hesitation in staying here again. In fact, one of the nicest Novotels I have stayed at.

We stayed in this Hotel for 4 nights. A little bit far from Porto's main attractions but the room is clean and comfortable, bathroom is updated and clean and staff is polite, friendly and helpful. Dinner but is simple but tasty and for a reasonable price. Breakfast is very good and highly recommended.

I have stayed here several times and at the Ibis next door. I choose these hotels because of the ease in getting here by car and the ease in getting on the highway again, usually when we have to get to the airport early. I don't think it would be a good option to use as a base for visiting Porto because driving in Porto can be hectic, due to narrow traffic congested streets, and there is limited parking. The rooms are larger than those in the poor cousin Ibis next door and the breakfast is more sumptuous, as well as the price, but this hotel is in dire need of a good makeover.

The room was big and modern. My room had a view to the pool and the sea (at distance). The bathroom was big as well. The breakfast has a huge variety and so did lunch, it was buffet. The service is very good and helpful. The only negative is that you need transportation to move around since the hotel is on the other side of the highway.
