2 ⭐️ ⭐️. definitely not a 4 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Reviewed 31 october, 2021

They only reason that I give more than one star is because the staff is very friendly and helpful. The hotel is not worth a 4 stars. I give it with lots of effort 2,5 stars. The hotel could use a complete renovation but also the bathroom could have something better than only one big bottle of soap, no shampoo, no conditioner nothing... A swimming pool but not bathrobe, no slippers. Only a small bottle of water the first day….The management could do much better. The reception couldn’t follow and didn’t pick up the phone, bartender needed to be called by the receptionist I don’t think we would ever come back to the chain Vila Galé.

Had booked this hotel for 5 nights. Arrived early and was offered a room immediately but with a change after the first night. I opted to wait till later that afternoon to avoid the change. Luggage storage available. My room was prepaid half board. At check in I needed to pay the city tax immediately and all the extra's at check out. Did not make much sense to me but ok. Very friendly reception staff. Was given 1513 with nice view over city and sea. Not all floors are served by each lift. Not confusing because well explained. The room was a bit run down, low beds and old furniture. Nevertheless very clean. Bed did not look comfortable but I slept very well. Bathroom is fine. Daily fresh towels, soap, shampoo etc provided. Spotless clean. Breakfast good and dinner buffet with good choise. The food for dinner could be a bit warmer. Busy hotel with TAP airline staff and tour groups. Hotel was fully booked but that did not bother us at all. Will stay again if needed.

Patricia best massage therapist

Reviewed 16 october, 2019

One of the best massages I ever had. Patricia is an excellent massage therapist. I have been in different spas and taken massages in different countries France, Sweden, India and Sri Lanka. If you get the chance get a massage at the spa at the Hotel Vila Gale in Porto, Portugal and ask for Patricia.

Stayed here for two nights. Hotel was very dated, best part about the room was the bathroom. The couple we were with had to change rooms because the room was just cleaned and had a very strong odor from the cleaning chemicals. The carpet was stained and spotted both in the room and in the hallway. The view from our room shows that this hotel is not in a good area. The breakfast was good. I can not recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Porto.

This is a great hotel. It's all the things you would expect. The only downside is the food but Porto is a great city to eat out in so no great shakes there. All you need do is ask of this hotel and they will do their best to deliver.
