The hotel is really well located nearby the touristic spots in Porto.

Friendly staff,, clean rooms and good services.

Definitively the best choice to explore Porto without pay more than you need.

We stayed at the Ibis Porto Centro for a weekend break in October. The location was very good, on the edge of the city centre. It was at the top of a hill as others have mentioned, but Porto has a lot of ups and downs and pretty much everything is 'at the top of a hill!' There are several places nearby to find a good meal for not a lot of money (definitely try the local fare, francesinhas are great!), and if you want to be even more budget-conscious, there is a supermarket called Pindo Doce literally steps from the hotel door.
Our room was cleaned daily and you can choose whether or not you require your linens to be changed everyday, which is good environmentally. Most people probably don't change their sheets at home on a daily basis, so why at a hotel?
The hotel does a continental breakfast buffet for €6 per person. We preferred to grab something from the Pindo Doce, but the selection on offer was quite extensive. The breakfast is offered all morning from 6-12.
The rooms do not have wifi, but there are a couple of computers set up next to reception where you can go online for free. Checkout was at noon, which was quite good as our fight was at 2 so we could go out in the morning and then head out.
Overall, it's a good choice for the location and price. It's not fancy, but it's in Ibis, it's not trying to be.
One thing I wanted to mention about the location. On the Ibis website, they say that they are opposite the Bolhao metro stop. It is not. It is about a 5 minute walk from there. I've seen comments about how it shows on Google maps, and I can tell you they are spot on. (The streetview is rubbish though as there is a dumptruck in the way!). The hotel is right next to the Invictus Commercial Centre.

Ibis Porto Centro is located in Porto downtown, next to Porto Colosseum. Near to the hotel there is a metro station (Bolhão) acessible from the train station Campanhã or even from aeroport. The hotel staff are helpful. The rooms are nice and very clean. For a 2 stars hotel I was very impressed.
