First of all this would be an "average" 3.5 star hotel, but this is, by no means a 5 star hotel. 5 star hotels characterize by extra staff and extra service (and extra luxury). NONE of them applies to this place
A hotel where the bellboy puts your bagage in a trolley and then disappears, or where you have to serve your own coffee in the breakfast room, where your breakfast table is hardly cleaned or where from the 5 guys sitting at the reception desk, just 1 of them looks bored at you and eventually listens to you is not a 5 stars hotel.
A special chapter deserves the restaurant, if you like cardboard pizzas (like the ones you can buy frozen for a couple Euros at the supermarket) or ridiculously small and tasteless steaks, then the hotel restaurant is the place to be. If not, I strongly recommend one of the restaurats at the river side or some great place in Matosinhos.
On the bright side of the story. The breakfast choice was more than reasonable, nothing spectacular, but certainly worth of a good 4 star hotel, and the pool & bar on the 15th floor were great. Fantastic view & very friendly staff. A shame that on Sunday they closed at 8 PM, but ok there wasn't really anybody else but us.
The rooms were ok, a bit worn down but decent size, good noise isolation for the windows and a quite clean bathroom.
So, all in all a mixed feeling about this place
- 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
