4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

Good choice if you want to stay outside of Porto but still be close. Reasonable price, clean good-sized rooms, quiet location; friendly staff, free parking adjacent to the building.

Breakfast is pretty much standard and no other meals are available (but you can go next door to the Novotel hotel for dinner).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We are a French couple from Montreal Canada, we did a trip of one month in Portugal this last October 2013 and we stayed in 17 hotels. We stayed at this Ibis 3 nights October 15th-17th 2013. We went to 4 Ibis hotels and we all appreciated them. For sure, this is not real “Portugal” life but for people from America, sometime it is good to have “western” comfort. Price: 39 Euros without breakfast. The breakfast is 6 Euros each person and is good. Pros: room well organized with a large table to work on, comfortable bed, quiet (you hear nothing from the other rooms), Cable TV with a lot of channels (English or French, etc.), free Internet Wi-Fi in the room, free parking available, bathroom with a counter to put your bathroom supply. Cons: very small room, far from downtown but you can take the bus closed to the hotel. We highly recommend that hotel

We arrived later in the afternoon than expected, the reception staff were pleasant and welcoming and very helpful. We were given lots of useful information regarding sight seeing and they arranged a taxi into the port for us to catch the last trip around one of the port wine houses as well as arranging a river trip for us the next day. As a result we stayed 2 instead of 1 night as planned. The rooms were clean, linen was spotless and the beds were really comfortable. Breakfast was a cold buffet with a great selection. Couldn't fault the experience and the staff were excellent. Will use this hotel again no problem.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

We stayed just one night on our way to France from Lisbon. The hotel was easy to get to from the main road into Porto (although the exit from last roundabout was a little confusing). It is clustered in an area near the bridge to Porto, as are several other large hotels. Outdoor parking is plentiful.

The reception staff were friendly and helpful - one spoke particularly good English, the others were OK with the basics. They made check-in/out simple and quick.

Our room was a good size and spotlessly clean. The bed was large and very comfortable. There was no road noise (with the window shut) and we got a very good night's sleep.

A bonus was the excellent local restaurant on the waterfront about 2 minutes drive from the hotel.

Very happy to return to this hotel and to recommend it to others wanting a reasonably priced stopover.
