We recently visited Porto for 3 days and couldn't have been happier with our visit. Porto is an absolutely magical place that is hard to believe exists. We chose to stay at the Guest House Douro due to a recommendation from a close friend as well as the stellar reviews. We couldn't have been happier with the place. The rooms... More

First, the owners -- Carmen and Joao -- could not have been better hosts for our visit to Porto. They were so friendly and helpful it felt like they were old friends who we've known for years. And the house was so tastefully appointed in our guest room and the public spaces. Their breakfasts (and Joao's special coffee) were not... More

Our visit at Guest House Douro was magical...from a warm welcome...delightful room...fabulous breakfast...great map orientation to Porto...to perfect dinner recommendations. Carmen and Joao are the best. The Guest House set the bar high...will be hard for other places, in other countries, to measure up.

The reviews of the Guest House Duoro are right on. Carmen and Joao made our stay in Porto so comfortable. The location is perfectly situated in Porto and the views from the river side are beautiful. We felt welcome from the moment we rang the doorbell. The rooms were very comfortable and well appointed with all of the necessities, plus... More

I echo the glowing reviews of previous guests both as to the facilities, the location, and the hosts, Carmen and Joao, who made our Porto stay all the more special. So too for the ample, tasty and beautifully presented breakfast. We made last minute reservations and thus did not get a Duoro River view but never mind, the room was... More

OK, I am ruined for other guest houses. Thanks a lot, Carmen and Joao! Yes, as others have mentioned, the rooms are fantastic, albeit a bit small, but they have everything you could want plus some lovely touches like fresh flowers and charming but not overdone decor. Joao and Carmen have wonderful senses of humor and they treat you like... More

We read all the great reviews on Trip Advisor and saw it recommended in the Rick Steve's book as well. All the fabulous reviews are true. The bed is comfortable the linens are high quality, a bathrobe to snuggle in, great shower, wonderful view of the Douro River that even in the rain was delightful. We had great touring advice...

It just does not get any better. Joao and Carmen are the perfect hosts. Our stay at Guest House Douro was wonderful, but now every time my wife come homes she wants a glass of port, which really is a pretty good idea., stay and you'll see what I mean. The location is great, literally just steps away from wonderful... More

A small group of us went to Porto on a wine tasting trip. Carmen, Sonia, and Joao were great hosts. They treat you more like family than paying guests. They know a lot of great restaurants that have great food, service, and not crowded with tourists. For first timer Port guests, they know all the great places you need to... More

We fell madly in love with Porto... (I didn't know what to expect really, even the pictures I'd seen didn't quite capture all of its charms) One of the main reasons for the love affair was that we chose to stay at Guest House Douro. Everyone here was wonderful, including Sonia who welcomed us to town so warmly on a... More
