Our staying at the Cale Guest House was wonderful. The most friendly staff I had ever encountered. The location is simply the best. The rooms are spacious and lovely. The building is renovated and nice, but for restoration reasons has no elevator. If you have any heavy luggage or have health issues - ask for one of the lower levels.... More

Fantastic location in old town, great service and many value-add extras. Staff really helpful with tips for tourist visits and tailored to your requirements or interests. Beautifully renovated building (no lift) with large well-appointed rooms. Parking close by if you have a car.

Fantastic guesthouse with large stunning rooms with fantastic views of the city. Architecturally designed and probably the most spacious room I have stayed in. You cannot be disappointed staying here. On a small note, coffee in the room instead of "new age" tea twigs would of been appreciated. Breakfast Is downstairs in reception so the atmosphere was a little stilted... More

We spent 3 nights at the Cale Guest House and were blown away by the friendly staff, beautiful room and superb location. Pedro greeted us with a warm welcome and was more then accommodating. He provided us a map when we checked-in and spent time going through what to see and where to eat. He was friendly, knowledgeable and wanted... More

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
