High rise hotel outskirts of Porto
Good hotel but rather larger and more impersonal than we prefer. Free parking. Great room, great breakfast, everything immaculate. Lovely spa with pool, sauna, steam room, jacuzzi plus treatments. Location too far from centre of city- 20 mins walk to nearest yellow hop on hop off bus stop.

Good location,
Close to the metro, and adjacent to the regional coach station. This is very nice business style hotel, you pay extra for a room safe key which I feel for a hotel of this quality should be included in the room price. The rooms were clean and a good size, not all the views from the rooms are great, many face the industrial side of the city. The hotel is the stop off for coach tours so there is plenty of people around, this can make breakfast busy, but the staff keep food supplies topped up, and if you miss that morning rush its quiet otherwise. You could walk to the centre of Porto and the bridge etc in about 25mins.

Room not quite how the website describes
As per usual the pictures on the website are. It a true representation of the room! It seems you need to pay a full nightly rate to be given one of the renevated rooms. Getting a good deal on a comparison website is not always as good value for money as it seems.....

An unexpected night in Porto
We ended up staying here overnight on our way back from Madeira to Gatwick after our flight had been cancelled two days previously. The bed wasn't very comfortable but the room was fine for our brief stay. We spent a few hours just walking around the old town and going down to the river. We didn't use public transport so can't comment on how easy to use this. We took taxis for our journeys to and from the airport. Around €25. We had booked breakfast which was very good. We were pleased we had as there wasn't anywhere local to eat as far as we could see.

Quite a corporate hotel
Gym wasn't very well equipped, the bike wobbled and there was no water cooler. A rule about swim caps meant we couldn't us the pool! Breakfast was nice.

A great stay for a few nights
We did not study the map properly! Travelled into the centre by Metro which took a while as we had to change trains. We could and did walk once we discovered it was not too far, a 15 minute walk into the centre. Plenty to do for a short break and you need to explore on foot. Lovely pool in the hotel, the reason we chose the Vila Gale as I wanted an indoor heated pool. Nice breakfast with plenty of variety. The area appears to be a little run down but it is a City, it is quite safe and there is a lot of work going on in the area building and the roads and footpaths being improved.

Porto Accommodation
We stayed at the Vila Gale for two nights, at the end of a nine day tour of Portugal. It was a lovely hotel: the service was efficient and friendly. We were given a junior suite. it was a 30 minute walk for us to the river or the city centre (probably less for a younger couple). But near the metro if we had chosen to use it. And there were also plenty of buses. We ate at the restaurant one night and the food was excellent. However I would have liked to be seated apart from coach load of tourists who were having the buffet; quite noisy. I would be happy to stay there again.

Good price quality relation
We missed slippers and a bathrobe to go to the pool and spa. The waiting in the restaurant was very long.
