Centrally located to all major sights and attractions, five minute walk to the metro and train stations. Very clean accomodations, good simple breakfast, good service from staff. Their recommendations were appreciated and useful. Would stay again.

I found this B&B to be lovely overall. The place is very clean, well equipped and prettily decorated, with common spaces both inside and outside. I had booked a budget room and it had a balcony with a view on the Clerigos tower. There is fruit and cake at breakfast, among other things. Location is very central, and close to... More

Had a nice time here, the place is immaculate and in a great location. We were greeted nicely on our arrival, given a map of the city. There wasn't any community vibe like you might find at lower-end hostels. It is certainly an upper-end guest house. At the end of our stay we got some poor advice from a staff... More

I was hiking the Camino Portuguese starting in Porto and needed lodging for the night that I arrived from the States that was convenient, affordable, and comfortable. The Poets Inn excelled in fulfilling ALL of these needs. It is located exactly on the Camino, a short distance from the Porto Cathedral, and was kiddy-corner across the street from the last... More

Very well remodeled and decorated, The Poets Inn is funky, fun, social (or private), friendly and accommodating. Our room had a balcony over looking the street and was clean and beautiful - I wanted to move in! The communal areas are off the main entrance so if you're tired you don't have to worry about walking through a party. Excellent... More

I stayed at Poets Inn for 2 nights to see Porto. The staff were super friendly and helpful especially Rita who was just new. Rooms I stayed in were clean and beautifully decorated with lovely fresh linen. One bed was a bit too firm for Me but that could be fine for others. Central location within walking distance of all...

My husband and I spent 4 nights here this past August. Our room was on the 3rd floor so I imagine not everyone would be happy climbing those stairs. It was pretty quiet but with the windows always open you often get people unintentionally slamming doors because of the wind. The room we stayed in was very quaint and inviting.... More
