“Great.”
Reviewed 28 August 2011

This is a great hotel, large but still friendly. We got it at a very good price, which made it excellent value for money. We were in an 'ordinary room' which was clean, large very comfortable, quiet and with a great bathroom. The swimming pool on the roof was ok for visiting, but not a 'resort' type pool! There is a very nice bar area, with very friendly staff and very reasonably priced and good 'bar food'. The only real problem, is the location. It is obvously a 'developping area', but is not there yet! It is apparently not totally safe to go out in some directions, at night, although, where is it totally safe in the world! We certainly had no problems, and although it is fair way from the center of Porto, there are good transport links. The location was not a problem for us. I would certainly recommend this hotel, if you get a good rate.

HF Ipanema Park is located in a somewhat unsafe area. Cars not parked inside the parking garage or on the hotel properties tend to get broken into. The hotel is on quieter streets though which allows guests to have the windows open during the night. The rooms are good sized and clean. The breakfast buffet is nice but could use some gluten-free items. The roof top terrace is gorgeous and a great gathering place. The lobby/hotel bar area is unfortunately still allowing some smoking in certain parts and does smell of smoke throughout. The air conditioning could be more reliable. Ours didn't work at all during the first night but we were provided with another room for the rest of our stay. Even in this room, however, the air conditioning didn't run reliably throughout the night and it got quite warm. The extra door separating the bedroom area from the bathroom area and closet helps with noise-reduction and is wonderful. The staff is polite and helpful. Overall we would definitely stay at HF Ipanema Park again.

I was looking forward for the weekend so I could get some good night sleep after a friends wedding in Oporto. We went on Friday to get the weekend off and all we got at this hotel was loud music from the pool bar in the top floor until 3 am that could be heard in the 8th floor where I was staying and the terrible noise all night of the water running through the old pipes. Would not recommend anyone looking for a quiet stay!

We arrived a Saturday and was looking for using the swimming pool. But there was a House Party going on, so the pool area was ocxupied. We had ordered a room in the pool floor, but the noise was terrible.

The ladies romm was next to ours and it seemed like the walls were made of paper. I went down to complain and got another room in the same floor. Tjhe music should stop at aboeut 19 in the evening, it stopped at 11, and then the paty continued in the room next to us. So, a new complain to the reception. Luckily we got a room in the 10th floor.

The breakfast was neither what you ecpect from a 5* hotel, you had to pay extra for boiled eggs and the choice for breakfast was not very good.

We really enjoyed our three day stay in Porto and the HF Ipanema Park Hotel.
The hotel is not situated in the city center but the center can easily be reached by bus (200 or 207) or by taxi. When in Porto make sure to visit the port house area on the south bank of the river Douro in the area Vila Nova de Gaia.
Maybe we were lucky but our standard room with an extra bed was very nice although it had not been renovated. The ordinary beds were excellent and the only major minus were the very thin / poorly insulated walls, which made you hear the neighboors.
The breakfast and buffet dinner (thursday-saturday) was also excellent.
The hotel has a small pool with a bar on the roof (which gets crowded), a squash court and a small gym. Indoor parking is 11 euro a night.

Room Tip: The renovated rooms are on the 10th floor and upwards and higher priced.

Located 10 minutes from downtown and 5 min from the Serralves River.

The hotel looks good. With a good sauna and free internet in the lobby. The outdoor swimming pool has a magnificent view, flanked by a small bar and areas to relax. The place is very nice but because it´s small fills quickly, what is an inconvenience.

The rooms are spacious, have a new and nice style. Practical, with TV, fridge, nice bathroom.

Parking is paid, but it´s easy to find parking spaces around the hotel.

The staff is friendly and helpful.

I only tried the breakfast, which is better than what you typically find in such hotels.

Pets allowed with a fee.

Not much night life around hotel, but as it is near downtown it is easy to find places to go out.

If you find a good promotion, it is a great choice.

My wife and I stayed in HF Ipanema Park, but in retrospect we would much rather have stayed in Porto city centre. Our room was a good size but worn. The hotel was fairly clean. The breakfast, however, was awful. The buffet was full of old bread and bad cereals. Not to be recommended. More importantly, the hotel is situated on a busy road and you need to take a taxi to get to the city centre.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
A five star hotel for demanding clients.A hotel that connects comfort, a great service, sympathy and quality to a smart choice!Having been for a long time a reference among the hotels of Oporto, the HF Ipanema Park has reinforced its arguments thanks to a recent remodelling process, which has turned it into an extraordinary example of environmental efficiency that is positively reflected in the comfort of its guests.Sophistication is a common aspect between the atmosphere of the rooms and social areas, with an emphasis on the panoramic Top of the Roof bar with a pool and a unique view over the mouth of the River Douro, and the free Wi-Fi Internet available throughout the entire hotel. In such a welcoming and comfortable hotel, only its proximity to the most sophisticated and charming area of the city will convince you to go out.At the Jardim d'Inverno restaurant, both the Portuguese cuisine and the exotic flavours are dressed with the refinement of Chef Agostinho Teixeira. At the Coffee-Shop near the Twin Trees bar, our light meals will surprise you.At the HF Ipanema Park you always have more than you think, for less that you can imagine. ... more   less
