Was booked here using a wowcher deal and was pleasantly surprised. Loved the small size of the guest house; being on the first floor, we were steps from the inviting terrace which was a cute little area to unwind with a glass of wine after a day of site seeing . Our room was quaint, slightly outdated but cosy and... More

Hotel is in a good location. 10 minute walk to the historic town. Everything is easily accessible on foot. Staff was super, everyone provided excellent and friendly service. Rooms are small, but that is to be expected. Decent continental breakfast.

Modest and not expensive accommodation. Very friendly, helpful staff. Room is not spacious, just big enough for the bed. Shower is pleasant and clean. Nice balcony overlooking the main street. The WiFi is free but has a very low range. The availability on the second floor was very poor. I normally choose more luxurious hotels but for the price the... More

Boavista Guest House was a good surprise. Good value for money and super-central, with Porto's major attractions at walkable distance. The staff is friendly, the rooms sunny and clean. I would recommend to stay on the new refurbished ones (with a more minimal decoration and more spacious). One remark only: the Wi-Fi needs to be improved on all rooms.

The rooms are always clean. Some of them have a nice balcony. Everytime I came to Porto I stay here. The staff is very friendly. If you want to save some money don't by the breakfast and go to the cafe across the street

Hi. I was in Boavista Guest House just one night, but everything is nice, since the employes til the service. I recommend that place for a Oporto visiting. Very good price/quality ratio too. As i was there to run in the Marathon of Oporto, i don't take breakfast, but think that 5 euros for one breakfast, is too much, but... More

I stayed there on a 5 day visit to Porto with my daughter. Our first bedroom looked out onto a very noisy road so the receptionist arranged for us to move to another bedroom the following morning which was quieter. The bedroom was cleaned daily. The breakfast was very basic and would benefit from more choice. My daughter and I... More

We stayed in a superior room which was a good choice since it was completely renovated.Downside is that it was small with uncomfortable beds.Room and small bathroom were clean.Breakfast is very basic,it could be improved.But taking into account price,it has a very good price / quality ratio.

I have stayed in boavista recently for 2 nights with group of friends. Hotel is easy to reach & clean,with a lovely sun terrace. But the highlight of the place is staff working there. Our receptionist Andres couldnt be more helpful and accomodating, always welcoming us with a smile and good tips about Porto ;)
