Carmen and Joao run a spectacular place with extraordinary warmth and generosity. They helped plan two wonderful days for us in Porto and even arranged a last minute fishing expedition by getting a rod/reel from a neighbor for us to use. Breakfast is beyond words, especially if you enjoy fruit.

I read the review here written by someone who felt that while Guest House Douro was immaculately clean, offered a perfect location and had two, lovely hosts, they got the impression that they were expected to be the perfect guests and that the hosts were only accommodating so long as certain rules were followed. I, too, had a similar experience;... More

Our party of four stopped in Porto for one night en route from Spain to Lisbon. Wish we had stayed longer! We loved Porto, and Guest House Douro. Carmen and Joao are wonderful hosts. Carmen answered my many questions via email. Joao greeted us when we arrived by overnight train and showed us spots on the map despite the early... More

I was touring Porto on my own, and consider myself so lucky to have stayed with Carmen & Joao at Guest House Douro. The rooms are immaculate and extremely comfortable, and the B&B is located right in the heart of the historic district. Carmen and Joao made sure that I had reservations for dinner each night (good thing since lots... More

Guest House Duoro may have a somewhat deceptive name. In some parts of the world, a guest house suggests a low end lodging. But, Guest House Duoro is a fantastic, elegant find right in the medieval part of Porto, overlooking the river and the active quay. Carmen and Joao, the hosts and owners, are truly lovely people. I welcomed their... More

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
