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.

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.
