We stayed there for 3 nights. It's excellent value for money in the center of Porto. Room was clean, of a good size. The bed was a bit soft to our liking. The owners are really welcoming and nice. They gave us directions and places to visit in Porto. The street is paved so it's a bit noisy.

Hi! Thank you very much for your comment! We really strive to provide a pleasant and comfortable stay to our guests. In regards to the noise of the street, we can't change the road pavement but we are installing step by step double windows as well as insulation inside the rooms that face the street.

This is not a fancy hotel, but if you are after a nice traditional stay in an old guest house, this is for you. The rooms are old and in some corners it shows, but they are very clean and the family/staff provide everything to make your stay memorable. The breakfast is very basic but nice with home made jams... More

I stayed two times (05/14 & 08/14) for 2-3 days each in this nice guest house on the outskirts of Porto's city center. The garden area is really nice and the wine tastings they offer are highly recommended! The city center is a 10-20min walk away, next metro about 5min. Personell is very nice and can give you many good... More

The Guest House was difficult to find. We don't speak Portuguese and it became something of a nightmare looking for the place. The room we stayed in was very small WITHOUT A WINDOW. The only light came from the adjacent bathroom. When I asked for a brighter room I was told that one vacant at the front would be very... More

We truly enjoyed our stay in Alvares Cabral Guest House. Raul and his Dad are amazing! Wine tasting evening was a pure gem: Raul's Dad is one of the most kind, intelligent and nice people we've ever met. Thank you! It was our pleasure to spend that evening with you. Rooms are nicely decorated. There is a cool backyard where... More

Staying at the Cabral guest house is like staying with really good friends. The rooms and property are in great condition. The thing I really like about the property is the great backyard where you can go outside and enjoy the sun. It is a bit of a walk to get there from the main train station but not too... More

If you are planning a visit to Porto then I recommend this guest house. As soon as you arrive at the front door you are made to feel welcome. Finding the guest house is made easy due to directions being provided in advance. It is within walking distance to the major city sites and river, as well as the metro... More

Not sure why I booked the 'economy room'. Must be cos it was the only one left then. Room (sleeps 3) was in basement facing the road. It was almost as tho you were sleeping next to the car tires on a very busy road. Hence noisy. Luckily people and cars in Porto wake up late (& sleep late too),... More

Our room faces the back garden on the second floor and we love it because it is quiet. I love the tall ceilings that gives great ventilation from the window that opens to the backyard. The room has charming touches such as the framed tiles and stamps and very clean. Most importantly, the host is so knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating... More
