Four of us went to Porto first time in April and stayed at Ibis Porto Gaia. Location is on the south bank of the river and is only Euro 7 taxi ride to all famous port cellars and restaurants, and about Euro 10 to 12 taxi ride from airport. So don't bother slaving over taking metro. Continental breakfast is Euro 7 and has plenty to offer, well worth it to have a good start in the morning. You can also sit outside to enjoy the breakfast. Front desk staff friendly and helpful. Design is modern with good WIFI speed. Room and property very clean. Shower has good water pressure. Love Porto and definitely will return. It's a gem of excellent value and comfort.

A party of 4, we had 3 rooms for 3 nights. Good location - easy to find from airport in a hire car (free parking onsite - shared with Ibis Budget and Novotel) and only 10 euros into Porto in a taxi. Staff very friendly and helpful. Had a pizza and toastie on first night as we didn't arrive until 9pm. Food was microwaved but was OK. Usual cold buffet breakfast which was fine. Would have given 5 stars except that the a/c in on one of the rooms wasn't working and wasn't fixed

Someone has said it is not very convenient for tourist areas, I disagree, busses leave every fifteen minutes for the centre. We ate in the restaurant, and it was chilled food, not made all that warmer with a couple of minutes in a microwave. It is a quiet hotel in a backwater away from activity.

Room Tip: All are identical and quiet

We enjoyed our stay there! Really nice atmosphere in a colorful hotel with super friendly and helpful staff (highlighting José who was great). Comfortable bed and pillow, excellent shower, modern room with a smart design (but a bit small with not enough space for suitcases). Very good continental breakfast. Just the location can be considered a negative point as it's not really easy to get to the city center. You can take the water taxi plus the historic tram for a leisure and scenic trip to the city. However, a taxi is still the easiest and quickest way to get there.
I totally recommend this hotel!
