It was a unique experience to stay at Poets Inn. Decoration is very innovative, very interesting and unique, for example in brakfast room you'll find different old radio receivers, murals, and even a birdcage with an origami crane in. :) A writer's name is given to every room; we stayed at "Anais room" with a picture of Anais Nin on...

We arrived in Porto quite late at night but were able to call Sabine from the reception to provide us support with our access card to the room. Super nice and welcoming staff! Recommended! The design, decoration and room temperature were really cozy. This really made our trip!! Many thanks to the poet inn guys.

We had booked a room for 3 nights and moved to another place after two. The main problem we had was that the pictures they show when booking a room online aren't pictures of the actual rooms on offer..though they are so proud of the individual interior of their rooms. To us the room did matter since we went in... More

Hello Fellow traveler, The pictures we show ARE the rooms we have on offer. When booking online you can only chose the type of room you wish (private room ensuite, private room shared bathroom, low cost room, etc), a picture of a room of that type is displayed as an example. If you wish to book a specific room that... More

This was the perfect lodging for Porto. We stayed in a private double, with a balcony overlooking the narrow, not-touristy neighborhood street. It's a quick walk to the ribeira and other good areas for endless strolling. Quiet, affordable, simply and thoughtfully furnished, comfortable common rooms, very friendly and kind staff. Excellent views of the city from various floors, windows. I... More

Stayed at the Poets Inn in October. We rented a 1 1/2 bedroom apartment. It was equipped with living room, dining room, kitchen, washer and dryer. Everything was within walking distance to tour buses, restaurants, train station and more. Highly recommend.

Perfect location, great staff, nice rooms. Just a great, clean, cheap place to stay. You can walk everywhere and the next Metro-station is about 5-10 minutes away. A small minus for the room with not much daylight and a bit dank. But it's a hostel and not a hotel!

Where to start... The place is in a cute refurbished house in the city center, very close to everything (just walking) and with plenty of public transport possibilities if u need to go to other places near Porto. For 50 euro a night, me and my couple had a splendid double room with private bathroom with an amazing view over... More

Chose this hotel to begin the Portuguese Camino. The route goes virtually right by the front door. The Poet's Inn is in a lively but quaint part of Porto, very close to the city center. The hotel is located in an area of families, restaurants, churches and small stores - very safe and friendly. The rooms are reasonably priced and... More

Spent the 2010-2011 New Year. Great location in the very centre of Porto. Loved the clean rooms and the vibe. Great NY's eve party organized by owner. Was surprised to see Mayakovsky as one of the room names.

I stayed 4 nights in the inn, it's close to the train station and I can walk to every attraction in the old town center. The hotel staff is nice and helpful, if you do not mind they will not clean your room except for request. There are plenty of clean showers and toilets. The soundproofing is not good, you... More
