A friend and I, travelling on a student budget, stayed here for 3 nights. The staff was very friendly, and gave us a great map detailing routes to go in the city with restaurant and site recommendations. It was easy to get to from the airport and easy to get to the city centre from here. Comfortable rooms and a... More

Stayed for four nights, sampling two different rooms. Spotless and very comfortable with superb hospitality. 30 minutes from airport (euro 2.35) on Metro, get off at Lapa, 10 minute walk - about two blocks. Easy walk to most sights, simple bus ride to beach. Rooms higher up are lighter, rooms at the back are quieter. But you will not be... More

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.

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

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
