We stayed here for five days. The rooms are small, and there are few extras, but the rooms are clean with new fixtures and a good bed (which can be hard to find in some places in Portugal). The bathroom is simple, but efficient. Be careful in the shower!! It can be slippery!!

The staff is terrific; especially the young lady in the evening and Stephano who is there in the early mornings. We got all kinds of interesting information from these guys. They were funny, polite and very personable. Delightful. They made our stay very nice.

Breakfast is a simple affair and costs 6 euros. The bread is made "on site" and you can make fresh orange juice from the oranges that they provide. (juice machine available). They also have the best coffee in Porto. I had at least two/three cups every breakfast. We checked our email during breakfast - it's free in the lobby area.

All in all we had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. Kudos, especially, to the lovely staff.

What I like about Ibis hotels is the price and the fact that I know what to expect. Ibis Porto Centro has an excellent location on Rua da Alegria. It is walking distance from Sao Bento train station, all the attractions in the center; it is even possible to walk to the Ribeira. This Ibis hotel was fully renovated and it looked very modern. Our room was adequate and clean; bathroom size was on the small side. The staff was friendly and helpful. When you go request a room that is not on the street side since it could be noisy. The only challenge we had was that the room did not have air conditioning and it could get warm especially during the day. Breakfast did not have as many options as in other Ibis hotels in other countries (e.g. France, Germany) but it was cheaper: 6 euros per person vs. 10 euros per person in Paris and Frankfurt.

Room Tip: When you go request a room that is not on the street side since it could be noisy.

Good value and excellent service very friendly staff - parking is next door in an adjacent car park - its narrow but accessible. General appearance of hotel once you are in is its a spick and span place - as is usual for ibis the food is more snack based but its fine for business late arrivals and to keep you going , as always ibis provides good value and absolutely ok service.

Pros:
- The staff is very, very kind! The best hotel staff I´ve ever met!
- Nice location and easy access to the subway.
- Very clean rooms.

Cons:
- They could invest a few euros in better pillows...
- 822 room (in which we stayed for a single day) has a noisy (and misterious) water system that is activated some times during the night

If you expect sauna, spa, gim, giaqnt lobby, this is not your hotel. If you just want a nice place to rest after a busy tourism day, it is. Great price (55 € night+ 6 per person breakfast), wide rooms, new furniture, clean. Good breakfast. 5 minutes walking for metro station and Plaza de los Aliados (Porto town hall).
