Guest reviews for Vila Galé Porto

Family (1)
3 out of 5
You are required to use caps in the swimming pool (if you don't have one - you can buy one at the hotel). The pool is small and crowded. The rooms have very old decor and carpets. Lots of dust and smell like cigarette smoke. The area around hotel has a lot of construction and unfinished or run down houses. You can walk to the city center easy - but most of the time you pass by hookers, homeless, drugs and thugs. Some hotel staff could not give good directions for subway cost or suggestions where to go. We chose half board - food was ok. One night when big buses came - food was better than other nights.
