We've spent four nights at the Escadas room in Casa dos Guindais. The house is a quiet, lovely place, very well renovated. The room itself is spacious and provides all necessities for a comfortable stay. On our arrival, we received a warm welcome from Alvaro, who gave us a lot of information about the house and things to do. The... More

Casa dos Guindais is located in peaceful place. On the same time it is strategically nearby centre and Dom Luis Bridge.

This is a superbly renovated property with rooms to suit most requirements. They retain their original charm, with some nice modern features. We travelled to Porto as a family of 3 and booked 'Escades', which is situated at the front of the house on the first floor and afforded a great view of the Pont Luis I. The room provided... More

Just returned from a 5 night stay at Casa dos Guindais in Porto and wish I was still there. I absolutely agree with all of the other reviewers when I say that this accommodation and Porto are something special. Upon arrival my partner and I were wowed with the amazing entrance hall with the beautiful, old stone contrasted with the... More

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...
