After travelling a long way or a busy day exploring Porto, you'll be pleased to be greeted by a friendly face, always ensuring your needs and requests are dealt with efficiently.

Negative Reviews

Slightly uninspiring location

Although convenient for shopping and some local wineries, some guests find the location just outside Vila Nova de Gaia a little uninspiring because it's not in the vibrant centre of Porto, rather, it's near to a modern shopping mall.

Wi-Fi can be weak

Unfortunately, a small handful of guests have trouble with accessing and using the free Wi-Fi at Mercure Porto Gaia Hotel.

A little far from Porto city centre

This hotel is a short taxi ride from the centre of Porto but it's not particularly easy to walk to because it's accessed by main roads, which was frustrating for some guests.
