Reviewed 10 September 2013

This is a 4star hotel in the city center. It's locations is one of the best things and the surrondings are quite nice too, because you have great gardens close to it with some of the best views of Porto.
The rooms are clean and very comfortable, especially the beds, really nice, thye breakfast is great but free parking is hard to find or you're very lucky.
Nice option in Porto to stay in. The city is just beautiful and full of magic.

Room Tip: Room 625 is a good choice!

very comfortable hotel, good location, close to the center of the city, good breakfast. Internet connection is good in the room, clean and comfortable.
The stuff is polite and willing to help. I will recommend this hotel as valid to consider for your trip.

We had a big suprise when we got to the hotel. We were ready to jump in the pool and have sushi at the restaurant for dinner BUT when my husband made reservation on the site He was sure ! He reserved for the Ipanama Park, picture of the pool onfirmed and all. We get there and they told us no pool no sushi ! Why ? because you are not at the Ipanama PARK but at the Ipanama Porto !! The site automatically switch the reservation on the order hotel instead of a 5 stars you get a 4 stars without any information. The personnel doesn't care, the front desk told us that : " it happened ..". Meaning OFTEN ? no apology, no discount ...By the way I took a coffee in the evening I had no change ... I had to talk to 4 different persons to be able to pay for it ! Yes I know what you're thinking... I'm just too honest... I'm amazed with the poor service. The bedroom was nice and spacious. But sorry for a 4 stars it's really bad. Make sure they don't switch you to one of the hotel of the group !

Room Tip: Don't book somewhere else !

The hotel is beautiful, new, staff is very friendly and helpful, rooms are nice, breakfast very good, free wifi.
The only downside is that it is a little bit far from downtown, it's 30 min walk otherwise there is the bus which is just 5 min drive.

This hotel is some little distance from old town centre, though bus or taxi (about €8) can be got into the old town, or walking would take around 40 minutes. The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet, with Air Conditioning, good bathroom and facilites. Staff were helpful and courteous and a spacious reception area. Buffet breakfast was very good and plenty of seating space.
We enjoyed our stay here, though only one lift was working at the time of our visit, which meant long waits or use the stairs!
Would stay here again, though the hotel location maybe a bit too far from the centre for some visitors.

Stayed at HF Ipanema Porto for a week and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Rooms are spacious and well-decorated, staff are extremely helpful and friendly and the restaurant serves very good food at moderate prices. The buffet is a different story but acceptable nonetheless.

We also made use of their events facilities and that was arranged exactly as we needed as well.

An excellent experience overall.

The services: The staff are the real plus here, every one of them helpful and friendly: the sign of a well-managed hotel. Reception provided maps and information very patiently. Bar and breakfast staff were helpful (though we weren't best pleased to be offered Omega 3 when we asked for unsalted butter; in fact the quality of the breakfast wasn't top - reconstituted juices, coffee drips in the tea, self-service but no trays available...). One thing we really appreciated was the tea and coffee provided in reception before a 4.30 am shuttle to the airport. Nice touch, thanks!

The room: Daily cleaning is efficient and checked on, the room was a nice size and the bed was lovely and comfy. But the bathroom, although clean, really needed refurbishment (blackened grouting/sealant, badly-placed loo-roll holder, shower curtain rather than screen...).

For business: It must be a business hotel as there are conference facilities. But the WiFi on the second floor was quite simply unacceptable, even outside of the conference hours. And the room safe in a business hotel really has to be laptop-sized.

For tourism: It is a long way to the centre, and a fair walk to the nearest metro. Still, there are buses literally outside (get a 24-hour ticket for all of Porto's public transport from Casa de Musica), some nice restaurants within metres, and a big local shopping centre. So it isn't necessarily a problem for those spending the whole day away from the hotel. I doubt that it's a very suitable base for families with young children, though.
