Value Score Great Value!
Good For Business
Very good 4 star hotel.
Vila Gale is a real nice 4 star hotel with most facilities you would want as a tourist or when you are in Porto on business.
It´s very nicely decorated with a movie theme and the staff is very nice and non snobbish.
The restaurant at the hotel is good and the rooms really nice.
It´s located in central Porto just 5 minutes walk from Batalha square and that makes it a good place if you are in Porto as a tourist.
The hotel has free wifi in the reception area, but you will need to pay 5 euros per day for it if you want to have it in the room.
Having been to a few 4 star hotels in Porto as a tour guide, i can say that this is for sure one of the better 4 star hotels in town.
Unique Quality: Nice relaxed atmosphere and good facilities.
Directions: 5 minutes walk from Praca da Balalha.
Reasonable Value but Hard to Find
The rooms were comfortable and being high up had tremendous views over the city. The hotel itself is reasonable value, but a long walk from the down town area, and with no real attractions in the immediate vicinity. If coming by car, get clear directions, as the hotel is not clearly signposted, especially if you are coming in from the north - we drove past it twice without seeing it and had a frustrating half an hour driving around the area until we got out of the car for a walk and were able to see the sign on the tall building. Once we were there the staff were helpful enough, but it has a very "big hotel" feel. Nothing special.
Directions: If coming from the north, at the bottom of Ave Fernao de Magalhaes just before the big square there is a poorly marked signpost for the Hotel Parking (does not say which hotel) on your right. You will not see the hotel from the road. Drive slowly!
I spend only 3 nights in this hotel, but is was lovely. The staff is very nice and the breakfast and dinner is 4 star. If you like to eat for dinner buffet: the price is actually about 20 €.
Unique Quality: The hotel is located direct in the City, close to Metro Station 24 Augusto. To Rua Santa Caterina, the best place for shopping, is only 2 stations by Metro away.
