« Wonderful child friendly hotel in nice quiet neighborhood »

While not in central Porto we found the location quite convenient being on the road out of town and a short ferry rise iver to Porto. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the outdoor playground and pool were a big hit with our daughter.

« Great Location (if you have a car) »

Park your car and take a taxi to Porto and the waterfront area. Typical quality and service of the Novotel chain. Very good breakfast buffet. The staff was very accommodating and fluent in the English language

« Porto Vacation »

A very nice Hotel off the beaten track but once we were used to the public transport system we were surprised to find it worked really well for us with busses running close to the Hotel from very early until late, and the ADANTE tickets purchased from the metro stations were valid we used mostly the 24 hour tickets for different zones depending on how far afield we wanted to travel, When we arrived at the Novo tel we were checked in by Aderito who had an excellent knowledge of the area and gave us many ideas and suggestions, this carried on throughout our stay, his customer service was excellent a real credit to the ACCOR group, our room was of a good size with fabulous views of the hotel gardens, pool, River, and ocean, the room was kept clean and tidy by housekeeping to a very high standard, a standard that we experienced from ALL of the Hotels staff, The Breakfast was also a fine experience with the many varied choices of hot and cold food, excellent coffee's and teas, well attended and often replenished, would certainly stay again 10/10. My tip on public transport is to do a little research regarding the ADANTE tickets and Zones that they cover if you intend to use the transport system to get around as it is good value

« Trip to Porto with family »

Location and service were ok. Rooms need urgent carpet replacement. Do not expect a very spacious room. Good value for money . Friendly staff and good variety for breakfast. Internet works well. It's located on a hill and walking around may be bothersome for kids or people with limitations .

« Very nice hotel »

We stayed for 2 nights in Dec 2016. The staff is very kindly. And the room and breakfast was very good. The location is also good. Just 10 min to city centre of Porto by car or taxi. If we go to Porto again,I want to stay this hotel, again.

« A 10-day stay »

Pleasant and relaxing stay. Loved the swimming pool, small but tranquil with sun lounges available. Location is a bit setback as the hotel is stranded among highways. Dinner and snacks bar are of good quality even though food for breakfast could have been a bit more diversified. Staff were all friendly and helpful.

« Porto experience »

Porto is definately a must to see Porto on any one's list! A magnificent city that oozes the mystique of most other cities. Accomodation was well situated with magnificent views and easy to reach destinations. Rooms good well kept somewhat dated which did not matter as they were comfortable and as it was you didn't stay there too long as Porto required a lot of exploring. Pool area fantastic after a long day, breakfast, dinner and bar excellent. Parking availability a bonus in Porto. Definately stay there again

« Brilliant Holiday »

We stayed 11 nights at this hotel (2 adults and 2 kids aged 12&8). The breakfast was lovely and great choices. Both the Bar and restaurant staff were extremely friendly and had a warm welcome for us every day. Pool area lovely and the kids play area great for kids. The rooms were cleaned regularly. We didn't have a car but a walk 5 mins down the hill and we were at the Marina in Afurada which had some lovely fish restaurants. Reception ordered us a taxi and for around €6 all of four of us were in the centre of Casa de Gaia. There are some lovely restaurants here also and its just a short walk over the bridge to Porto. Plan to return again and would have no hesitation to stay in the Novotel Porto Gaia again . lovely Experience.

« Lovely hotel in a great area of Porto for getting around »

Stayed here in early June 2016 and found the hotel to be very convenient for the motorway leading south from Porto airport, yet bypassing the city. It was also a great location for visiting the quayside where the Port cellars are based aswell as Estadio Dragao, home of FC Porto. The breakfast is excellent, lots of choice and the time that it stays open for is good too. The pool area is small, but was not crowded at the time of the year we stayed there. The food from the bar / restaurant and poolside was reasonably priced and not bad quality. More expensive than external outlets but you expect that in a hotel. The rooms are spacious enough, even for 2 adults and 2 children. They are clean, functional and have everything you'd expect. They could do with a little modernisation in the bathroom and room but cleanliness was excellent! I'd stay here if I visited Porto with a car every time because the carpark was free and access was convenient.

« A Very Nice Stay »

We stayed here for a few days to visit Porto and had a great stay. The hotel is a little out of the centre but that is also an advantage with a car, €6 for a taxi to the Cais de Gaia. Or we used the car park near where the cable car comes down. €6 all day. A little difficult to find as the turn from the highway is on a bend but once there plenty of parking. Nice pool and sun beds, fantastic view over the estuary of the Douro. Good breakfast, we eat dinner here once and it was fine. Staff are really friendly and nice, always a smile. We had a very nice room with a bit of road noise but the view to the river was superb. All in all to be recommended.

« Short trip to Porto »

We wrapped up our tour by going to Porto for 1 day and 1 night. While this hotel is not within the city centre, it only took 5 - 10 minute taxi there. The location is quiet. There is a small swimming pool and a kid-corner which I like. The staff is nice even though I felt there is a little bit under-staff during my stay. The room is clean and the price is reasonable.

« Good Hotel, good location and a lot better than previous two Mercure's !! »

A but dubious about booking another Accor Hotel given my past two experiences with the Groups Mercure Paris and Algiers Hotels, however, the Novotel Gaia was a pleasant surprise, quiet, clean, spacious rooms, located in a central position for easy access to Porto and beyond via the excellent motorway system. It was fairly quiet during my visit which was nice, however, this did mean that breakfast was a bit hit and miss as the fresh hot food grill was not topped up, making the selection look at little less than appetizing. As usual the internet was a little slow, but ok for browsing. On the whole I satisfied with the Hotel and at the competitive price I paid would recommend to others,

« Holiday in Porto »

We are a family of 4 and stayed at this hotel for 7 nights. We couldn't have chosen a better hotel. It's an excellent hotel for all especially for families. The service was brilliant right from the time we checked-in till the time we checked-out. The rooms were nice and spacious. It's a not in the centre but only a 6 euro taxi ride from the centre. There's also a shopping centre close to the hotel . All in all an excellent stay.

A comfortable hotel, well equipped and well run. Nice rooms very typical of Novotel. Just off the motorway through Porto and Gaia so very easy to find. Good wifi coverage for business travellers, good breakfasts and nice bar.

« Visiting Porto »

We have been in this hotel 3 times before, so we knew the location. It is very conveniently positioned, at a walking distance to main points of interest in Porto (Porto Wineries, the Ribeira wharf, restaurants, etc.). The hotel is clean and the staff very nice. The only inconvenient is that the facilities are in need of refurbshiment, being a little bit old and worn. But nothing that jeopardizes your stay.

« Good value for money »

The hotel is situated in a well connected area via road, if you travel by car. Access to Porto and other surroundings is easy and fast, since several bridges can be used. Hotel service is NOVOTEL standard, representing good value for Money. The prices were extremely competitive for a weekend break. The free WIFI was reasonable speed.

« Good option for families »

The usual Novotel rooms, very good option for families because the rooms can host 2 kids free of charge, making an excellent value. Good breakfast. The hotel is located very close to the bridge that connects to Porto, very close to the highway, but the rooms are very well sound proofed. The hotel is not in the city center, you'll need a car or taxi to go anywhere. In summary, traditional Novotel rooms, good value for families but for only a couple there would more central and better options in Porto at similiar price.
