We had a wonderful three nights at the Guest House. As noted by others, Carmen and Joao are lovely, helpful hosts and their tips and ideas will let you get the most out of a short break. Delicious fruity breakfast, and a nice glass of port in the evening. We were in pricier, smaller room but it has that fantastic... More

Guest House Douro is at the top of my list of places to stay. My wife and I have stayed in many accommodations all over Europe and this is perhaps the very best. Warm attentive service, a comfortable room with ensuite, a sumptuous breakfast. Carmen and Joao and their staff make you feel immediately welcome. They are helpful with arranging... More

We stayed there for two nights. The best thing about Guest House Douro is their service. We took their suggestions for two restaurants and a winery tour, all turned out to be perfect experience for us. The breakfast they served was the best we've ever had at any hotel! The room was quite small (they are located in a section... More

I most that I can do is echo the praise of the previous travelers who have stayed at this splendid place. I have never felt more welcome or more valued as a guest anywhere in the world that I have stayed. From the welcoming from Carmen and the wonderful port for which we were so grateful after a difficult self-drive... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Douro Guest House! The location is superb– right in the historic old town, fronting the boardwalk and river. The Guest House has been thoroughly updated and very tastefully decorated. The best part however, is the hosts. Carmen and Joao were an absolute delight! From the moment we walked into their lovely guest home,... More

We were treated like long-time close friends in this hotel -- which is the approach taken for all guests. The rooms are decorated with care and attention. Our room faced the alley, which was fine, particularly since we were out and about most of the day. The breakfasts are exceptional -- beautiful fruit plate that is filled with an amazing... More

Carmen and Joao are the consummate hosts. They made our stay in Porto a special event with their warmth and helpfulness. After getting up at 4 AM and going to the airport we find our flight had been cancelled. Called Joao and asked if they had an extra room for the night. His response was "we will have a room... More
