“Excellent Budget Hotel”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

It was my first time in an Ibis Hotel. Very convenient budget hotel located in downtown Porto. Room charge was 45 euros per night on accor.com
From airport, you can take the subway (3 euros). It will take you directly downtown Porto next to Ibis Hotel.
Once again, very convenient budget hotel, clean bathroom and comfortable bed, no safe in the room, no minibar… But free wifi, and breakfast at 6 euros!!!

Good hotel and good value for money. Ity was located near to the centre of Porto, easy walking distances. Also near to the metro which arrives from the airport. breakfast is available and seems to be good value. Would stay at the hotel if I visited Porto again. Staff friendly and helpful.

A very nice Ibis in centre of Porto. Location is very good and prices per room are affordable. It is only 45€ per room. Breakfast is not included, but there are many bars around so that shouldn't be a problem.

Wifi is working, but you get coupons for 30 minutes, which is rather a bad idea, but better than nothing :)

We stayed for four nights at the hotel and were very impressed with the quality of the rooms and the friendliness of the staff. They spoke perfect English and were helpful in recommending restaurants as well as finding out costs and times for trains to the Optimus Alive festival in Lisbon.

The hotel is within easy walking distance to the rest of the town, with some good bars and restaurants clue by. We would recommend Zsa Zsa bar close by for a drink. Very friendly bar staff and owners.

Two small issues were that the note only has double rooms and the road it's on is a little un kept but neither of these hindered our time there.

Overall, highly recommended, especially given low cost.

We had been in Portugal for almost 3 weeks when we stayed here for 3 nights. This was the nicest room we had so far. It is a bit of a hike into the main part of the city, but we did it every day for 3 days with no issues.
The room was clean and quiet; it was a little small but not uncomfortably so. There was a small couch to sit on for one person. The bathroom was large & modern.

Parking is in an indoor parkade next door and is partially subsidized by the hotel. However, at the tourist bureau, the lady was on the phone with the Ibis hotel she was quoted
€4.50 per night. When we arrived, it was €6.00 per night. No matter, it was convenient.
The room had AC
There is free WiFi in the lobby as well as a free terminal.
Outstanding front counter staff; friendly, chatty & helpful.
Breakfast was an additional €6.00. We chose to go around the corner to a local pastry shop for pastry and coffee. It usually cost between €5 and €6 for both of us.

When we checked into our room, there were no hand towels. only large shower towels. We found a housekeeping lady and tried to communicate with her that we needed hand towels. Finally we got through to her (our fault for not speaking her language) & we received one hand towel. The next day after we got back from sight seeing and wine tasting, we had clean shower towels (unnecessary after one night but appreciated) but no hand towels. We gave up and used our shower towels.

Nice place; great value for the price.

Only stayed in the Ibis Porto Centro for one night. The staff in evening and morning were really genuinely friendly and very helpful. Check-in was effortless and the room was the standard Ibis afair, but slightly more modern than some. Room was quiet and the hotel within walking distance of most places of interest in downtown Porto. The €6 breakfast is very reasonabley priced and was well attended to, ensuring that all options were available. Overall unbeatable value.
