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 ;)

We stayed for 2 nights in this guest house. The staff was very nice, the room was clean and the bathroom was great, absolutely new. Location is also good, we felt safe even late at night and it was close to the metro. However, there was some mold in the closet (on the ceiling), which freaked my wife out, as... More

We opted to upgrade to a superior room when we made our booking and were pleased we had as on arrival it appears that the superior rooms are the ones that have recently been re decorated as the rest of the rooms were very dated. The rooms are extremely basic but very clean and were cleaned every day during our... More

First impressions of the guest house were good, everything was very clean and the reception staff were very friendly and helpful but the rooms, room 13 anyway, really let the place down. Although spotlessly clean and with everything working, there is a serious lack of comfort. My room had a bed, a bedside table and a wardrobe but no chair... More

It is a small guest house at a very convenient location to explore Porto. Room was a little bit old fashioned, but the staff were helpful and nice. They recommended us a nice local restaurant near the hotel named Casa de 3, which was really perfect.
