“Nothing too memorable...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2009

This hotel was ok. Miles better than the hotel duro. The internet in my room didn't go but at least it was free in the hotel so I had to sit in the hallway... But on the plus side my room was right at the end of the building and was really quite and had magnificent views. One of the nights they made the bed with the sheet widthwise not lengthwise so there was about a 2 foot gap at the bottom of the bed where there was no sheet! You just don't expect this from a 4 start hotel. Of course it was quick to rip the seets off and remake the bed which we did, but you just don't expect this from a 4 start hotel. Likewise they didn't refil hand soap in the bathroom's etc until we left a note one night and then the next day it was filled. Likely we just got a maid that was rushing through her cleaning... Anyway the front desk service was just sort of ok. The breakfast wasn't inspiring either. Not a bad choice but nothing you will really remember thinking that was a great hotel... Ohh they didn't have a fitness center either... But there was one not to far away which I went too for 6 euros a pop so it wasn't too bad.

This is a good 4 star hotel, all renewed, the rooms have a good dimension and there is nice breakfast. The only negative point is the service. The check-out is until 12am, but the room service decided to block the room, with my bags inside, before 11.45 am.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2009

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights from Dec 29th to Jan 1st. We got a good deal on booking.com, with a double room with breakfast included at 59euros.
The rooms were nice and clean (there are smoker and non-smoker rooms), ours had a nice view to the river. The bathrooms had toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, soap, etc), courtesy of the hotel, and a hair dryer. The TV was good, it had plenty of international channels as well as all the portuguese ones. However, it was a bit hard to figure out how the air conditioning worked.
There is a bus stop that will take you to town but taxis there are cheap so if you are travelling in 3s or 4s it might compensate to take taxis instead of buses.
Breakfast was very good, and the hotel staff was friendly and always ready to help.
Overall we had a pleasant stay at Ipanema Porto Hotel, Porto is a great town.

The hotel is around 20 minutes drive from the Porto Airport. It is in outskirt of Porto city. It is not convenient for tourist as it is quite far away and you need to take a ride to the city centre. Having said that, there is bus stop opposite to the hotel and it costs EUR 1.45 per adults per trip. It takes around 15 minutes to get to the city centre. Since there will be less bus running after 8:00 pm, so the location is not that convenient.

The room is clean but not large. During my stay, one of the sockets in the room does not function.

The breakfast is acceptable for a 4-star hotel. The variety is not much but sufficient.

The staff at reception is friendly and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay here. I traveled with my 30 yr. old daughter. The room was comfortable, great lighting in the main area of the room, clean, nicely decorated. Windows opened. The staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good and included in the price of the room. Large and spacious lobby.

Good local restaurant across the street, other restaurants just around the corner and up the street as is the supermarket. Ask at the front desk for directions. Parking available 9 euro/day.

Downside was the shower ran hot/cold, tub was small, beds were too soft, pillows uncomfortable, poor lighting by the mirror, only electric outlet not near the mirror (not counting the one in the bathroom that only works a shaver).

"Hotel Ipanema Porto is a very nice hotel with pretty friendly staff. We were there in february 2008 and it was a lovely 4 day minivacation. Rooms are very clean, the marble bathroom is big enough and with everything you need inside. They clean the room and change the towels everyday. The breakfast room is a bit too serious, but I think it's because as we saw, the hotel is mainly visited by business people. Breakfast is very tasty!!! The centre of town is a bit far, but the bus station is close and the bus comes often.We prefered to see the town by foot...we only took one bus : the sightseeing tour bus, and I really recommend it ! It's only 10 euros and you can see the best sights from Porto. The ticket is valid for 2 days. Taxi is also an option, it's not expensive. The Cristal Palace Gardens are a 5 min walk from the hotel and don't miss it because it's a great view over Porto from there(from behind the Palace).Oh, let's don't forget the great shopping sessions you can make in Porto...
Enjoy your stay!

We stayed at the Ipanema Porto hotel during March 2003. The rooms were plush featuring nice fittings, a large TV, lovely armchairs and the bed was very comfortable. The marble bathroom included great toilettries such as a toothbrush pack. The staff were professional but not overly friendly and the restaurant had a sombre atmosphere. However, the breakfast buffet was fantastic. The location of this hotel is not great- situated in the commercial district of boavista- the modern part of Porto, it is a 15 minute walk into ?liados, the old quarter of the city but the Cristal Palace gardens are a 5 minute walk from the Hotel and afford a fantastic view of Porto.
