Very relaxing environment and at the same time really close to everything you want to visit. A stone's throw from the Douro and close to the city centre. The hotel is beautifully designed and decorated, both elegant and comfotable as well as easy on the eye. Coffee and basic condiments available if you want to do a bit of self-catering.... More

We stayed in Douro which has a long balcony overlooking the small garden. Great location, very close to metro/ trains at Sao Bento. alvaro's directions were easy to follow and his warm welcome and recommendations were much... More

This is a wonderful find in Porto- close to all the "must see" places but also a real haven of tranquillity. Alvaro is a superb host and provided really good tips about getting round the city, restaurants, shops and even a great place for breakfast. We stayed for 3 nights mid-September and although the guest house was fully occupied, we... More

There is absolutely nothing negative to write here about the owner Alvaro and Casa dos Guindais. We only stayed 2 nights before our return trip to Toronto, but now wished that we had booked "Casa" for our our first part of our trip also. Charming, perfect blend of old architechture with new and modern outfitting. Best feature of our room... More

Álvaro and his family have lovingly restored this property and yet it retains so many of its fine original features. Our host gave my wife and I a wealth of information on where to go, what to see and, best of all, a comprehensive list of food and drink places. Little did we know when we booked Casa dos Guindais...

If what you are looking for in a city break is the early morning sun gently easing it's way through the patio doors, and the gentle hum of the city coming alive outside and the first cup of your favourite drink sipped on your own little balcony, then like us you have found the best place for all Porto has...

Alvaro welcomes you, with his sophisticated manner of speaking he will warmly offer you a great and accurate advice about Porto spots you must check around. My girlfriend and I stayed for a couple of days in this beautiful house with enchanting rooms. Such a nice combination of the natural beauty of granit and wood! opening windows and hidden shower...

Casa dos Guindais was perfect for our three nights in Porto - its a little gem with a 'secret' garden surprise at the back where you wouldn't know you were in the city. Our studio on top floor with view to garden was just right - you can sip a glass of wine in quiet and privacy after a day... More

I have recently stayed a couple of days at this outstanding and gorgeous guesthouse, celebrating our wedding anniversary. Great design and decor of our studio, complemented with a carafe of "port" made us feel at home in a secular family house as explained in the welcome speech by Álvaro Aguiar, our host and owner, who is definitely a gentleman and...

Rooms were immaculate & beautifully designed. Perfectly located in the old town close to restaurants & river. There is no sign outside the building so be sure you take note of which number it is before you go! Thank you for a fantastic stay in Portugal, we'll be sure to return one day :D
