First off, the owner Alvaro sets the tone. He is gracious, urbane and very proud of his property. Our emails always received prompt attention and his personal greeting upon arrival was flawless. We stayed 8 days in Cristal, a tiny apartment with a balcony over the garden. Big enough for two. The frig and cooking space are minimal but well... More

Alvaro, the house owner, was extremely helpful and had really good tips about everything. The house is located in a quiet area minutes walking from everything you need and we... More

We stayed at this amazing property for 3 nights, including New Year's eve with my sister and her husband. We were welcomed by Alvaro, the owner/manager who is the perfect host. As mentioned previously, he is so friendly, helpful and enthusiastic about his home and Porto. And rightly so, the place is a credit to him. The rooms are huge... More

We were greeted at this beautiful property by the very friendly and enthusiastic owner/manager Alvaro. The house is gorgeous and perfectly located next to the river (down the steps) and a pretty short walk to town. We stayed in the Tunel (downstairs) for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon, and it was very nice. It has a small kitchenette... More

I spent 3 nights with my mother in Casa dos Guindais for a weekend trip to Porto. It's a beautyfull restored house with 4 rooms. You'll get your own key so it's very flexible. Alvaro gives great tips on restaurants. A perfect place to stay!

We spent 3 nights in this charming old house, which is well-equipped, including a nice garden. The location is very good, all the interesting things in Porto are in a short walking distance. The price is fair and the host is welcoming and helpful.

As other reviews mention, Alvaro's effusive welcome is one of many great personal touches staying in Case dos Guindais. We stayed in the Douro room for 3 nights in late October, with a small balcony overlooking the well-kept garden below and the Ponta Luiz. The room was clean and well-appointed, with a fantastic wet room shower overlooking the bridge. The... More
