Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Colonials Best views of the River
This hotel has the most outstanding staff. We had difficulty with the WiFi and they persevered until we had a stable connection.
It is a bit of a walk up and down the hill to the river, but well worth the height for the magnificent views.
Definitely would reccommend this hotel

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Silkchen Traumhotel mit Fernblick - my favorite in Porto!
Als Vielflieger, der endlos viele Hotels bereist muss ich sagen:
Das ist mein absolutes Lieblingshotel!
Die Lage ist herrlich, ganz oben auf dem Hügel mit einem traumhaft schönen Fernblick.
In die Stadt kann man noch laufen, wer nicht gerne spazieren geht nimmt für kleines Geld ein Taxi - die Fahrt dauert wenige Minuten.
Die Zimmer sind wunderschön, hell, freundlich und super ausgestattet.
Alles da zum Kaffeekochen, SAT TV, WLAN - herrlich!
Hier bin ich manchmal lieber als zu Hause - Tür zu, abschalten, chillen.
Für rauchende Gäste werden schöne, großzügige Raucherzimmer angeboten, was ich immer sehr sympathisch finde.
Das Personal ist supernett - was soll ich sagen?
Alles wunderbar, danke!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NHorta Amazing welcome
The Staff are charming and very welcoming, and the check-in is very fast. The view from the Hotel is amazing moreover if we have a room with river or Oporto side.
The breakfast is at five stars level.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by goldmemberaufdeustch Porto Rain and Shine
We arrived on a Friday, pouring rain (day two was gorgeous). 25 Euros covered the taxi from the airport (took a taxi 4 times total while here, all reasonable, none of the drivers spoke English, Spanish or German).
Hotel lobby was nice and the front desk staff were very friendly and helpful (maps, taxi, advice). There seemed to be no perk however in being a Rewards member (upgrade in a hotel in off season, a drink, or the "secret handshake"#. Room was great, size, condition and with a great view. Our first breakfast was great with a very good selection. On our second morning, we arrived right when it opened to find a crowd and a depleted selection. It may have been a tour with special privileges?/.
Our second night found us quite tired as walked a lot, the hotel is not quite in the tourist area, hence the occasional taxi. The area around the hotel doesn't offer much of a selection for dining #there is a great Mom and Pop shop that sells port a couple of blocks Northeast#. Our only choice was the hotel restaurant... The restaurant offers Porto specialties with a high-end twist and with prices one would find in any large European city, but not anywhere else on Porto... Quality of the product was good, service was initially snobby as the two of us seemed to be a burden on the staff #half empty, small dining room#. It was refreshing, as we paid our bill that the waiter refused #as others had done in Porto# to take too big of a tip, kind of the thing one sees in a Gasthaus in Germany.
We'll stay here again! We only have good memories and things to say about the people of Porto!

A couple of days staying in Holiday Inn Porto Gaia.
Hotel looks really good.
Fast check-in and check-out with nice staff.
Common areas near reception finished with a beautiful design.
A big room in a high floor, classic style but so confortable.
Many options of food at breakfast: fresh fruit, a lot of kind of sweet pastry...Perfect to start the day. Free gym.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by pokergrinder Großartiges Holiday Inn
Ein wunderbares Holiday Inn, die Suiten sind riesig, sauber und schön eingerichtet. Eine Flasche Wasser gab es auch als Willkommensgeschenk.
In der Suite 1204 hatte ich keine Probleme mit dem Internet, 2 Tage später in der Suite 1203 hatte ich im Schlafzimmer leider keinen Wlan Empfang, dies bitte unbedingt verbessern!
(Suite 1204 ist auch viel größer als 1203)
Leider wurde mir auch nur während des 2. Aufenthalts die Wahl zwischen 500p oder einen Getränke Voucher geboten.
Mit Sicherheit eines der besten Holiday Inn's, ich kann es nur empfehlen.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by reneew My Perfect 10
I have been choosing the Holiday Inn Porto Gaia several times this year because I like the city and surroundings. The Location is perfect, only 10-12 mins by car to the beach or the city centre. Close, there are small shops, supermarkets, bus and metro station.
I like the Hotel so much because the Staff of the Reception, the Breakfast Buffet and the Room Cleaning are always very friendly, without excemption. Also, if needed, the Room Management Staff is always very very helpful und highly professional.
The Hotel itself is very inviting around the newly desinged Welcome/Reception area. The Rooms, incl. Bathrooms, have a comfortable size, are very clean and the ones towards the city have a great view. This Hotel matches all my needs and I love to come back every time again. Thank You!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MARKOS El mejor hotel
Para mi el Holiday Porto Gaia es un hotel que tiene todo el confort a un precio razonable, yo siempre lo aconsejo a todos mis amigos.
tiene buenas vistas al douro, está fuera de la zona de ruidos, y está cerca de los centros comerciales, o si quieres ir a la zona de vinos está a cinco minutos.
yo siempre que me quedo en el norte de Portugal siempre me alojo en este hotel.
Tiene una cocina calidad precio muy buena, y despues me encanta las habitaciones,limpias,amplias y con unas vistas a la ciudad impresionantes.
y por supuesto destacar la amabilidad de todo el personal de recepcion,muy amables siempre y muy profesionales.
Para mi el mejor hotel en el que me he alojado en portugal.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Horse3 Good hotel, lack of facilities
I would like to write a good review, unfortunately this experience was very disappointing. Arriving for a 3 day/ 2 night business trip I chose this Hotel for the spa & pool facilities. I therefore bought my Wife along for a realxing break. The "pool" is closed on sundays great after travelling. It would not open until 5p.m on Monday, when we both went down to use "the facilities we were told they didn`t have a "pool" and that there would be an extra charge. The spa was primarily only a full service for guests having treatments !
If only I had known this in advance, either my wife would not have joined me or we would have stayed elsewhere we facilities were available. Needless to say we did not get to use any facilities.
The lounge carpets were filthy dirty with stains of spilt drinks and the furniture was damp !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Locin60 Excellent location for touring
Great room and comfortable bed. Staff very friendly and most helpful in all ways.
Nothing was a problem with help to get around the area. Nice and close to the centre of Oporto.
Metro station nearby, or a 20 minute walk down hill. Easy to get a taxi back (much easier!).
Port tasting places within 10 minute walk, yummy !!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lululateste everything ok, but...
We stayed 2 times a week in Holiday Inn Porto Gaia.
Very nice Hotel, rooms, view, breakfast and TOP CHECK IN.
At each time the two woman were very nice and helpful.
But at each time the CHECK OUT was horrible...
At each time the same men, no smile and doing everything like a machine...
What a contrast with the check-in and the two very nice women doing their job with a real pleasure.
This poor men should not stay on a front desk. Sorry.
My English is not so good ( I am French) but I am sure you will understand what I mean....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fabalous Family had a great time
At first we were a little leary based on the hotel's location but that quickly went away after we checked in and discovered a little more of Porto. the hotel offered great service, the staff were awesome and very helpful. The food was good and if you felt like eating out, there was some great restaurants just blocks away. The roof top pool although small was a nice treat.

I have no words to describe this fantastic hotel that was my second home since i discover it. 90% of the time i use it for business and due to that i do not have much time to have all that the hotel has to offer, however all the staff without any exception is simply amazing to fulfill all my needs.
Since of early time of Meliã to the change to holiday inn all these years seems that make it better :-)
A really nice and sincere THANK YOU!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Faitom Comfortable, spacious and clean rooms. Great value for money!
During our stay in Porto we were very satisfied and impressed with the Holiday Inn Gaia thay we stayed in.
The check in was swift (all the paperwork was prepared in advance) and staff welcomed us as Priority Club Rewards members. We were given complimentary 24 hrs internet voucher which we really appreciated.
Rooms in the hotel were very spacious, neat and tidy. Bathroom was big and maintained clean by housekeeping during our stay.
Breakfast served on the second floor was OK and we only wished a better and bigger selection of fresh fruits was offered.
Overall it was a great experience and we did not have any objections.
Housekeeping as well was able to provide goose down pillows -which made the sleeping experience heavenly.
Great lobby area with amazing pictures on the elevator doors on level 1.

I’m staying at the Holiday Inn Porto Gaia Hotel for several months ago, and I confirm that this is one of the best’s Hotel I have stay at.
The restaurant is fantastic, the quality of the food, the personal, always with a smile in the face, makes it my favorite place for my meals.
The reception, that always know my needs and my preferences. They make me feel at home.
The rooms so quiet, spacious and clean, and the top…the river view.
I also have to talk about the SPA the place where I really can relax.
All of those “little” things makes be wish always to came back soon.
Come and prove yourself the thru meaning of all this sensations…working or leisure…but come to see for yourself.

I'm a frequent customer to this hotel and must say highly recommend it. I always find the the friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble, a good selection of food and beverages is always available.
Rooms are extremely comfortable and very large, I also think the addition of a mini bar is a great feature.
I hope that I can keep using this hotel for foreseeable future.
