Picked this for its affordability, but liked it more than expected. Rooms are very clean, staff very helpful and only a 10 min walk from centre. It can get a bit noisy from restaurant next door at night, but either bring earplugs or just stay out like the Portugese!

I found Boavista Guest House to be a great place to stay for a weekend in Porto. My room was newly redone and very clean, and the hotel was very quiet at night. The service at the front desk was helpful with my questions about the city, and the guest house was only a five-minute walk from the Carolina Michaelis... More

The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and comfortable. A simple breakfast is included and the rates are really affordable. There is also a very beautiful kind of patio - So, all you need for a short (or maybe longer) stay in this nice city. The hostel is located near a metro station. My wife and... More

The hotel is well situated near the tram stop. People from the hotel are very kind and will take time to help you finding your way. They won't hesitate to call for information for you. Room is cleaned, enough space and there is a big balcony to enjoy the street view. I recommend it to anybody

It was nice enough for my purposes, but there was nothing fancy. I couldn't connect to the wireless internet while I was there, which was disappointing. The staff were nice. It was within walking distance of some of the popular attractions. In general, you can get around Porto by walking pretty easily.

Firstly the hotel was not clearly marked as 'Cesar Residencial' but 'Boavista hotel'. Residencial was written on the front step only. We took ages trying to find it. We paid for the room with the breakfast brought up in the morning (Romantic package) but realised the room was too small for this. I was very disappointed with the room -... More
