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.

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!!!

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.
