“Very good hotel, staff and food.”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Honestly It's the first time I pay a so cheap price for an Hotel as this one.

The room is clean, quite, the swimming pool at the top, it' s the best to place to have a rest after a working day.

The food is nice and the staff very gentle and always with an answer.

Very recommended place where to stay in Porto

More bad than good sides of staying in the hotel. The same food every day, No proper cleaning in a room ( we must have asked about the toilet paper! ) Poor service . The roof pool is just more a view than useful due to its small size. Its just a hotel for one business night and no more.

A nice modern hotel up on the hill with large rooms nice and helpful staff staff though at peak hours a bit understaffed. Breakfast and lunch were excellent with a variety of local dishes, fish fruits and cakes. The beighbourhood is a bit rundown though not on first sight. Beware to use the hotel parking!!! our car by a near by alley, was broken into on our first night.

Every half a year I travel to Porto for business and every time I test different hotels. The HF Ipanema Park Hotel looks a little bit chaotic and they haven`t found their style until yet. I`m really surprised, that the hotel has so many stars as it doesn`t look and feel like it. So many things don`t fit: Old Sofa in the lobby stinks like hell I think it was 3. or 4th hand.....the lobby anyway is very, very old fashioned like my room. It was spacious, but looked like out of the 80ties. Anyway the bed was good. The pool on the roof top is hip and nice, with a beautiful view, but definetly too small for such a big hotel. If the hotel would look like the pool, it would be a very nice hotel. The rate I paid wasn`t high, so I think for this price the hotel is okay. I don`t like it very much, if a hotel has refurnished, stylish rooms, which they use for their advertising, but indeed has more old rooms....

Stayed at HF Ipanema Park for 9 nights in July 2013 with my wife. We have stayed at several hotels around Europe but the staff at the reception at Ipanema Park was the best so far. They were very professional, helpful and friendly and spoke good English too. The pool and the bar at the roof was very nice in the afternoons when we got back to the hotel after a sweaty day downtown. The breakfast wasn't anything special, standard hotel breakfast. The service in the restaurant is the only reason why we won't give this hotel 5 stars. The location of the hotel is ok, about 4 km from the city center but there was always taxis waiting outside the hotel so no problem. You can also take the bus from a bus stop 50 m from the hotel.

For me the hotel gets a 7/10.
I went with 3 mates for a 30th during the Optimus Primevera festival.
The rooms are a decent size, comfy beds, good bathroom facilities, nice shower and the staff on the desk were good.
Our only gripe was the bar for food. The staff are shocking and in a world of their own.
Whenever we ordered food, it would take an age to arrive. We ordered 4 cokes and said they would be brought over, 20 minutes later - nothing. When we asked where they were, we were told they were busy. There were only 6 other people in the bar!!!
It is a short taxi ride into the main city centre.
The best part is the rooftop pool and bar. The pool is freezing though so it was rarely used.

The hotel is a twenty minutes walk from the center, but there is a busline which stops in front of the hotel. In a ten minutes walk there is a good pizzeria with a view over the Douro; Restaurante Casa D'Ouro on the first stage. Unfortunatelly their menu is not translated in English, so your order is a guess.
The hotel itself is a good startpoint to discover Porto, a great cutural city! But the beds are quit hard, so I automatically woke up at 6.30 am, my roommate had the same.
The breakfast is great. A shame that the swimpool wasn't heated, so it was too cold to swim in May.

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
