Although the hotel is a little dated, it is perfectly comfortable and efficiently run. The staff were friendly and professional, the breakfast up to the high standard expected. The outdoor swimming pool and sunabathing area is a welcome added touch. Free parking was also a big plus.

We really enjoyed our stay at Novotel Porto Gaia. The staff were extremely helpful, friendly, worked really hard and attended to all our requests. The hotel was clean and we felt very safe with the Covid measures that were put in place. The breakfast selection was fantastic and the food was very fresh and tasty. There was ample parking and it was great in terms of location, quite central for exploring and not too far from the airport. I would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family and would love to stay there again.

Humberto S. Business - 30/05/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Staff is clearly working in reduce mode. Too many tasks and not many workers. However, the make a real effort to keep the tradicional "feel welcome" of Accor, and they are able to do it in a friendly and professional way. I hope you can increase the staff number shortly and keep the usual standards. Please value to your staff the same way you value your customers: without that it will be just another hotel. As guess I value that.

I actually cancelled my booking since I had mistakenly made booking on wrong dates - I have now booked for 18-20 Oct. This mail shows your system does not work!!! I have also asked if I could be given consideration for a mistaken booking.

Relaxing stay

Isabel R Couples - 18/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

I recommend this hotel. Spacious executive rooms with free drinks & capsules coffee machine. Toiletries, sleepers and bath robe. It’s very noisy but the rooms are sound proof. Excellent bed! It was August and I found the reception area too small bc there were too many kids running around!

Pleasant hotel with really good breakfast

veronlazarenko Friends getaway - 16/07/2019 TripAdvisor review

Nice tidy rooms. Breakfast was really really good, with possibility to sit outside next to the pool. Pool is very good for children, as it is not deep, but not for adults if you want to swim. Stuff is very nice and friendly.

Not up there as a Novotel

TripAdvisor rating 3.0/5

CORRADO V Family - 26/02/2019 TripAdvisor review

Bedroom 216 plug by bed not working and cover plate broken Poor room decoration with horrible textured paint on ceilings and walls We were charged 3 euros for a bottle from the bedroom fridge we did not take. Was refunded immediately No option to book breakfast after you have booked your room online should you decide that you will have breakfast after you check allergen information Rip off of 10 euros each for adults at reception and that’s a special deal. Usually 12 euros .Breakfast same items most mornings and water down cheap juices Not the best location without a car Expect traffic around the hotel in the mornings Disappointed

A wonderful stay

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

Hanks983 Family - 22/02/2019 TripAdvisor review

Very well situated hotel, but you will need a car. Excellent value for money with spacious, very comfortable rooms with tea and coffee making facilities and a safe. The breakfast was superb with a wide choice of fruit, breads, cheeses as well as hot food ie sausages, bacon , mushrooms and tomatoes. This is the best breakfast I have had in an Accor hotel and it should not be missed. 10 out of 10 for everything.

Porto and Gaia at your feet

renatofeliz Solo travel - 11/11/2018 TripAdvisor review

I normally stay in Porto center when I visit this city. This time I chose Novotel Gaia. Located in the top of a mountain in Gaia with magnificent view of Douro River joining the sea, Nice hotel, great rooms, Yummy breakfast and gentle crew all very well located, few minutes from Gaia's caves as well as from Porto riverside. I really enjoyed it and recommend. Very good hotel for family with kids with playground and eletronic games attractions.
