“Very nice and big rooms”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2014

The Hotel was really nice in comparison to the charged price, 79 € including breakefast for a 5 stars Hotel in Porto i believe is really good.
I suggest rooms with Ocean view and higher floors All the rooms are big enough and clean , the only problem for me was the gym, they cannot open only at 07:00 am !!! at that time most of people should already take a shower after exercising. The should open 06:00 am!!!

Room Tip: Opening time of the Gym at least from 06:00 AM

Renovated some three years ago, Ipanema Park is a solid four star hotel. The public areas are spacious and well appointed. The check in is easy and quick. All the staff seemed to be very polite, attentive and always willing to help. The rooms are standard size (I mean of a good size for a 4 star city hotel) and very clean, as usual in Portugal.
Breakfast has everything you can expect to find in a hotel of this category, but all very fresh and well presented.
You can find a bus stop just in front of the hotel of the touristic yellow bus, which is very convenient.
I did not experience the spa, but people that knows it they all referred very psoitively to it.
The only drawback is that at any hour of the day or of the night you will find one or two people begging for monney (it seems that they rotate). They won't do you any harm, but it is annoying, and the hotel should avoid it.

Room Tip: Do not choose the top floors, because they have a bar in the terrace (top floor) where there can be...

I spent 3 nights in this hotel and had very little to complain about. On the 8th floor my room was both clean and modern.
Meeting rooms downstairs are abut dated, but work out ok. Staff was very helpful getting seats and tables in position or setting up the beamer.
Lunch buffet was ok, changing a bit every day. After 3 days I am looking forward to a "proper meal".
Weather was lousy, so no swimming in the pool. A pity, as it looks great!

Very badly located, far from any tourist attraction. To make things worse there are very annoying beggers in front of the hotel so going outside for a walk in not advicable.
The rooms are not big but OK and the stuff is friendly.
Breakfast is OK like in any fine hotel.
There is a mighty water pressure in the shower making the bath a very pleasant expirience.
Low price, good for conventions and groups, not recomended for couples and families.

I spent 6 nights at the Ipanema Park hotel due to work. It is a little out of the main town but very well situated to get a taxi or travel by car to Gaia, Mostinhinos and the old town of Porto. Service and quality of food,especially the breakfast buffet was great. Also a great service they offer is airport shuttle for 6 Euro's.

Room Tip: The executive rooms on floors 11-14 are great especially if you get one on side facing the sea and t...

When I booked this hotel I knew the location wasn't great but as it was just for an overnight stay at the end of a week in Porto and Guimaraes that wasn't an issue. I was with my nine year old son who was done with sightseeing and we were looking for a comfortable hotel with a pool and restaurant where we could spend our last afternoon relaxing.

The hotel was OK, but not quite what I was expecting. The rooms were dated and the pool so much smaller than it looked in the pictures. It was also unheated so far too cold for a swim in April even though it had been a hot week.

We had planned to have dinner at the hotel, which was just as well as there literally doesn't seem to be anything around. Food was OK and prices weren't bad for a hotel restaurant. Breakfast was pretty good.

The staff were friendly, but overall I found the hotel a little tired and impersonal. It's definitely not the kind of place I'd usually stay in on a holiday, but as we were there for less than 24 hours it suited our needs.

I stayed at HF Ipanema Park for six nights on a business trip. We had hired the conference facilities as well as staying as guests. The hotel was very spacious and had a very classy look about it and when I arrived I was greeted with a smile and great service. My room was a classic, so the cheaper end of the scale available, but it was amazing. Loads of space, a bed that could fit four people in let alone just me and cleanliness that I would expect. The food was definitely five star and kept us going through long eight hour meetings during the day. The staff were very helpful and polite.
Porto itself is beautiful and the town and beach is a short distance away so this hotel works whether business or pleasure. As far as I am concerned this hotel earned every one of it's five stars and I would highly recommend it.

Room Tip: I was on the second floor and had no noise at all.

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
