Location of Ibis Porto Sao Joao is great. There is a small shopping center below, a rail station close by (easy access to the city center) and it is close to University of Porto Faculty of Engineering.

When my husband first booked this hotel for our recent stay in Porto I was extremely wary. He paid less than $50 a night WITH breakfast. When we arrived at the hotel I was extremely surprised. The hotel was rather austere from the outside but inside was very nice. The rooms were small but cozy, with a decent size bathroom... More

It's also located in a Campus (there are a lot of campus in Porto so make sure its the correct one)... More

The room smelt bad. The quality is adequate to the number of stars (2), but you could clean it better. Close to the metro. There's wifi and shipping center under the hotel. Next time I will choose something different

Very clean and friendly. Only bad thing I could say about this place is that there's no kettle in the room and service is slow as one person covering bar and reception which was very frustrating BUT clean and functional plus just next to train that takes you to centre!!!
