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.

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Ursula L. Solo - 22/07/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Very friendly staff, the room with nice view ans sun set and comfortable bed, clean and swimming pool. The only bmoll as the hotel is close located to a noise street but bearable but on the other hand you are quick on the motorway without losing the time by crossing the city. Breakfast choice could be enhanced, I acknowledge the COVID situation but I am a friend of a morning egg.

Nice hotel conveniently close to the highway

Customer review rating 4.0/5

Andy Business - 10/03/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

The Novatel is located close to the main north - south highway and so is a convenient place to stay for a business trip. You can catch a taxi down to the old town for less than 10 Euros. The hotel is a functional building, nothing fancy, but the staff are very nice and it does a good breakfast. The WiFi is also fast and the hotel is clean and well maintained.

Well located, Good breakfast but Horrible nights!

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Eduardo O. Families - 26/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

POSITIVE POINTS: - Great staff - Very good breakfast - Nice location NEGATIVE POINTS: - The nights were terrible: bad pillows (all pillows too high) - Pretty hot at night. Although we are on winter, during our stay in this hotel the days were pretty hot for this season and there was no air conditioning only the heat function available. Me and my family had really bad nights with a lot of difficulties to sleep.

Exmo Senhor Eduardo O., Obrigado por ter-nos dedicado o seu tempo para nos escrever no seguimento da sua estada no Novotel Porto Gaia. Lamentamos que a prestação de serviço não tenha estado 100% à altura das suas expectativas, pelo facto queira aceitar as nossas sinceras desculpas. Os hotéis Novotel desejam sempre prestar a melhor qualidade de serviço nas suas estadas ; por consequente, a sua opinião é para nós fundamental. Relativamente à sua observação sobre a temperatura do quarto, informamos que o sistema do hotel não permite uma gestão individualizada, o que poderá dificultar o controlo da temperatura, com destaque às épocas de transição. Asseguramos-lhe que serão tomadas as medidas possíveis, para que possamos evitar futuras ocorrências. Mais uma vez, agradecemos os seus comentários e esperamos reconquistar a sua confiança aquando de uma próxima estada. Na expectativa de o acolher brevemente, queira aceitar os nossos melhores cumprimentos Albino Afonso

I got a room where I felt cigarette smoke.I had to change it.

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Anonymous Business - 17/01/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Except the cigarrette smoke causing a room change the hotel/room was clean which I like a lot. During one breakfast not all meals were available (boiled eggs and some other elements were missing). What I miss most is more vegetables. It was only tomatos and salad.

aniljauhri Friends getaway - 02/09/2019 TripAdvisor review

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

TripAdvisor rating 4.0/5

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

TripAdvisor rating 5.0/5

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.

A pleasant stay

filippoa891 Family - 22/10/2018 TripAdvisor review

Friendly welcome and excellent staff. Nice clean comfortable room. My daughter enjoyed the pool. A little out of main tourist area but an easy, quick and inexpensive trip in by taxi (6 euros). Good breakfast.
