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

My husband and I enjoyed two lovely nights in the Cristal room. The area was quiet and the walk was short to the riverside cafés and exceptional views. There is a tram service to river-level if you wish to avoid steps. I highly recommend this guesthouse and would not hesitate to stay again.

Stayed here for two nights. Alvaro the owner was extremely welcoming giving us a family history of the place and recommending his favourite restaurants. The house itself is lovely (300 years old) and very well adapted. Our room (Cristal) was bright, modern and very comfortable, the exposed old stone walls and beamed ceiling has a real charm. There is a... More

We are just back from the North of Portugal, having spent the last three days of our holiday, at a studio in Casa dos Guindais! It was a great place to start our discovery of Porto. We received a warm welcome from Álvaro and some great tips about eating out and about what to see in the city. Our studio... More

My boyfriend and I loved this guest house in Porto! It was an excellently located home base with an incredibly beautiful interior. The owners updated a house that had been in the wife's family for many generations and kept the original stone and beams, adding in some eye-catching industrial style updates. The owners had great recommendations for things to do... More

We stayed at this accommodation for three nights during our two week tour of Portugal. Casa dos Guindais is clean, peaceful and perfectly located base for exploring Porto and its surroundings. Moreover, more than very hospitable and knowledgeable owner/host Alvaro will make sure you are equipped with all needed information on where do go, what do and/or where to dine.... More

We very lucky to find the accomodation and loved staying at Alvaro's place. The other comments are just true, there's nothing to add. Moreover Casa dos Guindais was worth every cent! Thank you also for the recommendations finding places to eat and discover.
