First of all it is hard to find such hospitable, helpful people as Maria and Pedro. Both were gems and we can't thank them enough for their care, especially during our stressful time with the TAP pilot strike. Our room was very large and comfortable with a lovely view. The architecture of the building is interesting. This is not your... More

I would recommend this guesthouse strongly. Good value for money. In the old town with lots of restaurants and sightseeing at your doorstep. Spacious room and bathroom, good breakfast and a lof of useful tips. Tip : Terrace Lounge (Porto Cruz) in Gaia across the river (taxi 5 euro) : have a gin tonic, feel the ambiance and enjoy the...

I emailed the hotel to book and say we were arriving early and needed to leave our luggage, my email was answered immediately to say an early arrival was fine, but did explain our room may not be ready (understandable) On arrival we were a bit shocked by the "decor" (do not let this put you off) but Pedro who...

We were welcomed by Pedro upon arrival and he briefed us about every little thing a tourist needs to know about Porto. We had a lovely superior double room which was like a room in a mansion. Very large and extremely well-furnished. We had a beautiful view and the service was impeccable. Pedro helped us with everything we needed without... More

It was quite a surprise that there was no elevator. Our rooms were on the 2nd and 3rd floors, which, of course, means the 3 and 4 story walkup. It wasn't the walk, it was the luggage. Maria, the Manager, made a bad situation excellent when she had helpers carry up our bags. The rooms are very nice and, as... More

GPS for some reason does not find the address 23/24 but if you punch in 15 you will be almost in front of the guest house. The location is close to everything and is in the mid height range (because this is a hilly city) so you will either have to go down to the river front or up to... More

Rooms are really big. They have rooms overlooking the street and rooms facing a back patio. I recommend rooms with street views. You can see Palacio de la Bolsa, from the terrace. I read breakfast was limited with choices but I was very pleased with the offer. Good variety. The staff was also very nice, and close to the guests.... More

Our stay did not get off to the best start when, having emailed to say we would be arriving at 2pm (check-in routinely starts from 3), there was no one there. You can't get into the guest house without a key so we had to take our luggage with us to have lunch. Not a huge problem but a little... More

We travelled by train from The Algarve to Porto in Northern Portugal. We stayed for two nights in The Cale Guest House. It is perfectly situated within walking distance of all the attractions and our room overlooked the Douro River. The staff were most welcoming, helpful and informative. The bed was comfortable, the water hot and breakfast more than adequate.... More
