Guest House Douro, in beautiful Porto, is one of the loveliest places we’ve stayed. The delightful hosts, Carmen and Joao, welcomed us warmly treating us like old friends. Perfectly located close to all the sights, our gorgeous room came complete with a dreamy bed, beautiful white linen, cosy bathrobes and thick white towels. As outstanding, was the five-star breakfast prepared... More

Joao and Carmen run a superb Guest House. It succeeds on every level. The accommodation is extremely comfortable. My room (2a) was, as Carmen communicated very honestly, small. It had however, been designed ingeniously. The room’s doors open onto a balcony, and it comes equipped with a fold out chair to enjoy the view without taking up space. There is... More

Discerning travellers, take note: this is the place for you. Guest House Douro ticks all the boxes for a perfect break. Location - perched on the banks of a peaceful river, overlooking the port houses (which you must visit - book a tour on arrival!); nestled amongst family-run restaurants and bars; walking distance to the must-visit Porto sites. Comfort -... More

The highlight of our trip to Portugal was our time in Porto…and it was because of our stay at Guest House Douro. Carmen and Joao took such good care of us as guests in the inn and tourists in the city they know and love. The Guest House is so perfectly situated just off the river and provided a great... More

This is the only place you should stay in Porto. Unless you're travelling with 10 people. Or want a big business / conference hotel. What Carmen and João have done is special. This hotel has incredible location on the waterfront in the old historical region. It's an old building that got gutted and the interior is fresh and modern. These... More

Our family of 4 arrived at Guest House Douro on a rainy afternoon the day after Christmas and we could not have received a warmer welcome from Carmen and Joao. They are the best -- they instantly made us feel at home and like we had known them for years -- they are charming, fun to talk with, and have... More

We had a fantastic time at the Guest house Douro. The welcome was so warm, Carmen gave us a lot of advice on what to see in Porto and was so friendly, witty and full of life. Joao prepared an amazing breakfast and was also super friendly and personable. The room was small but beautiful with great attention to details.... More

Amazing stay at Guest House Douro. As hosts, Carmen and Joao are everything one could wish for: warm, welcoming and knowledgeable. We felt like we were staying with really good friends -- friends who also happened to have great recommendations for restaurants and places to see in Porto! Attention to detail can be seen everywhere, from the little sachet of... More

I just cannot say enough about what a joy it always was to come back to our welcoming hosts (Carmen and Joao) after spending the day and/or evening touring the magical region of the Douro! Carmen and Joan take enormous pride in the level of service that they provide and they never disappointed! Everything from the welcoming smile and conversations... More

Carmen and Joao were the warmest and most welcoming hosts we have ever encountered. Both were eager to chat and offer suggestions for sightseeing or dining and listen to our daily experiences in their charming city. Breakfast was a work of art. When we arrived back at the guest house after walking an entire day in the chilly rain, Carmen... More
