Cliphotel Gaia Porto
Ranked #7 of 14 Hotels in Vila Nova de Gaia
Reviewed 15 August 2017

We stayed at the Clip two weeks ago for a week.It was well situated next to the metro station and only twenty minutes walk down the hill towards the Duoro bridge.
Just across the road was El Cort Ingles which was great fo late night eating ranging from a la carte to a combined food hall.It came in very useful on more than one occasion.
The staff on reception were a good laugh as well as being so helpful without being pushy but the room staff were magical.
Yes the breakfasts were the same each day but I never found them lacking in any way.
The Clip treated us extremely well and we would definitely stay again.Great access from the airport and links all over the city.

Room Tip: Best side of the river to stay and please use the local cafes for the best views of the river.

The receptionists were always very friendly. The hotel has a very good location, close to metro, shopping, bakeries, market, etc. It is clean and comfortable. The air conditioning broke down, the hotel didnt work to fix it and to compensate gave us a voucher for breakfast. I highly recommend it.

Absolutely brilliant hotel! The location is absolutely ideal - just a minute from the metro, and only a few stops from the centre of town. Our room was spotless, cleaner than any other hotel I've ever stayed in. The Clip staff were extraordinarily helpful - the front desk was manned 24/7 with unfailingly polite employees; on our last day they kept our luggage for us before our late flight, called us a taxi, and let us know that we could purchase tickets for our day-trip to the Santa Inacio Zoo at the front desk with them so we wouldn't have to queue. I couldn't recommend this lovely hotel more.

Just returned home from a 4 day break in Porto.

Cliphotel is a great base for anyone staying in Porto. It's located over the river Douro in Gaia so if you're expecting to be in central Porto then you'll be disappointed.

It's located on a main road, straight up from the ponte luis bridge and you can walk from the hotel to there in around 15/20 mins or alternatively there's a metro stop right outside the hotel that gets you into the centre in 5 mins.

A top tip if staying over a weekend the metro is 24 hours on Friday and Saturday nights so you can get the metro back to the hotel easily if eating/drinking in central Porto.

The rooms are clean and modern and we had no issues at all apart from the plug sockets were slightly faulty in our room. One our adapter got stuck in and the others wouldn't stay plugged in.

We had room 707 which was next to the lift and a little noisy at times but not too bad.

Breakfast is continental and has a good spread.

we had a great time and thought the hotel was great value and a great location.

We were given a room on the 10th (highest) floor - nice to have a view over Vila Nova de Gaia (even though you can't see the old town, it's cool to be up high!). We had a balcony with sun loungers - nothing fancy but nice to relax in the afternoon sun.
Reception staff friendly and helpful. No tea/coffee facilities in the room but you can help yourself to tea, bottles of water, juice and fruit at reception whenever you like. Breakfast was continental and there was a good variety of choice (boiled eggs, ham and cheese, pastries - including natas one day [DELICIOUS], fresh and canned fruit, yoghurt, cereals, toast, fresh orange juice among the drink options...I was happy! ). No problems with in-room facilities, good Wifi, TV worked with lots of channels to choose from, room and towels were very clean.
The lift is small (we could only fit the two of us with backpacks and it was a squeeze with our luggage!) but that's not really a problem, just something to note.
The location was great for us as it meant that we could walk over the bridge to the old town every day and get that stunning vista on the way. It takes about 20 minutes to get from the hotel to the bridge if you walk - much quicker if you decide to get the tram, which stops practically outside the hotel. You are also right next to El Corte Ingles - a huge department store - for your shopping needs! If you are booking on to the Yellow bus tour, it happens to stop at El Corte Ingles so that was really handy for us after a day's sightseeing!
