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

We stayed at this hotel for one night and we were pleasantly surprised to find a confortable and spacious room. The hotel is very well located just on the other side of the river from Porto's ribeira and close to a Corte Ingles in Gaia in case you need to do some shopping. Parking is free and available which is...

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...

A number of previous reviews comment on the location. Therefore, it is important to understand that this hotel is not in central Porto. However, the metro and bus system does make it reasonably accessible; well, to be fair, we only used public transport to return to the hotel and never discovered where the bus stop is to go to the...

Recommended by a relative, we stayed here for three nights whilst visiting Porto. Comfotable rooms,the great advantage is the parking. Good fish restaurants at nearby beaches. Clean, good service and efficient, courteous reception desk.

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 .

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.

Stayed there because if a conference, but still thinking i should have chosen the ibis across the street. The rooms are quite aged (no plugs or light switch at the bed stand) and location... in the middle of nowhere. Wifi did not work at all in the two rooms i tried floor 3 out of 4 and in both bathrooms...
