For my husband and I, this was our first visit to Portugal and it couldn't have been better. Our stay at the Alvares Cabral Guest House was everything we could have asked for. We stayed in a double room, with a private bathroom. The house was very clean and so was our room. The hosts were also very helpful and... More

We stayed with you for 3 nights in Porto - we really liked the room, the style of the interior design, the useful information you shared with us. The location was also quite good. We particulary liked the attitude and friendly approach of George - one of the intendants. The only down side was the wifi quality in the rooms.... More

I stayed here during my trip to Porto beginning of September. On the plus side, the location is really good and the prices are excellent. However, I wouldn't recommend this for a solo traveler. The "solo room" is very small and very dark. The bed is tiny, about 1.65m long. I am short and I could fit in, but barely.... More

Alvares Cabral was everything what I saw on photos and read about. I stayed in single room with bathroom. Room was clean, wi-fi was working perfectly, flat TV with plenty of channels, location is close to downtown... what more do you need?

We stopped for a night in the magical town of Porto as a part of a siblings trip. We had the good fortune of staying at this beautiful guest house while we were there. Every year around the end of June, this town springs to life with the Sao Jorge festival. Staying here made this experience doubly special. Mr. Lopez,... More

Located in a lovely old building, and situated on quite a busy (one way) road, the hotel is quiet and calm. It is about 10 minutes downhill to the Trinidade metro station, but 15 minutes in the other direction. Although not in the centre of Porto it is possible to walk to the old city and the lively riverside. The... More

A beautiful traditional renovated house nearby metro and the lovely city of Porto. Good advise from the owner for attractions and restaurants. House with garden to relax or enjoy your breakfast. Shops for food just around the corner. Ask for a room at the gardenside !

We stayed for 4 nights in a nice room at the front of the building. It was spotlessly clean with a very comfortable bed and plenty of hanging space. The window has been sound-proofed and if all fully shut, blocks out almost all of the noise from the street outside and there is certainly nothing from the outside to disturb... More

Average guest house. The location is good as it's only 15 min walking from the city centre. The rooms are kept in an 'old style' but they are not very practical. Our room didn't have any window, which is very strange... only the bathroom did. The staff is friendly but the internet is absolutely unusable. None of our laptops/phones could... More

We picked this guest house originally for the price, but we found it to be more charming that we expected. It's a little outside of downtown, but really not by much. The staff was very helpful and personable, and are eager to learn about you as the traveler - where you're from, your impressions Portugal, etc. We stayed in a... More
