Arrived to a secure car park. Nice greeting. Room clean and tidy. This hotel very good for access to Porto old town, as metro line outside and runs straight to the old town. As a resident I found the hotel bar extremely expensive so purchased my drinks elsewhere. I did not try breakfast as had to leave at 3:30am

On the contrary, when the initially assigned room proved to have some problems, they promptly changed it immediately without any fuss. So, smooth experience there. The staff was friendly, the rooms are very clean, their size good, the bathroom normal and well equipped. Breakfast buffet good, open from... More

Everything you expect for an ibis hotel. It's clean, bar+snack, open 24h/24, air con. Nice staff. Area is a bit outside the city but the subway makes it closer. Area is noisy (OK if you close the window). Not romantic and not charming. It's okay to book a room. And looks perfect if you are on business.
