The Cale Guest House was a convenient location a few blocks down hill to the river. We had a king size room which was very spacious and had a nice view. It was very modern and reminded me of an IKEA look! The staff were friendly and spoke English. Breakfast was simple but good. It was a short walk down... More

The hotel has a great position in the historical center of Porto, we were warmly welcomed and taken care of, the personnel speak fluently English and French and were always extremely helpful. The room we had (on the small court with a little terasse) was clean and cosy. The small details such as freshly pressed juice and home-made jams every... More

I spent a night at Cale Guest House in November, I paid 79 euro for a twin room and the room was much bigger than I expected. It was more like a suite, with two twin beds put together in the centre and a lounging area near a row of large windows. Open the windows you would be looking directly... More

The only thing we wish we could change from this visit is to have another night to stay here. The host was extremely friendly and accommodating and spoke fluent English. He answered every question we had, made a great recommendation for dinner, and made sure we were comfortable both with the city and the hotel. The place was easy walking... More

Initial impression was not favourable because the outside looks unattractive and the lobby decor was grim. The staff made up for it with a charming welcome and help on the area. It is very well positioned. The room was well equipped if a little stark.

They don´t serve fresh food for breakfast... literally... I don´t like throwing away food, but this is too much. I refuse eating bad food. Watermelon slices which looked half rotten day after day... geting even more rotten. Kiwi fruit that you can tell is rotten just by the way they look... white soft cheese... yellow on the outside. The room... More

I stayed in this small guest house with my partner for three nights in the end of August. The room was spacious and clean and the A/C was powerful enough to cool down the room in few minutes when needed. We had a room at the front side of the building with a nice view. The location of the guest... More

In a great location close to the river and the old market this is a small establishment which is in a very brilliantly renovated typical porto House. The rooms are well thought out and large, the breakfast freshly prepared and the staff both friendly, informative and helpful. There is no doubt that this is the place we will stay when... More

My room was on the last floor (... More
