We stayed here as a group of friends and it was decent enough. The location is about 15 minutes walk from the old town so there arent really any great places nearby to eat or drink but its just around the corner from the metro station which made getting to/from the airport and train stations easy. The staff were very... More

- The location is quite good and you can reach the center 30 min by foot or 12 min by metro. The guest house seems to focus on new design (IKEA) i.e. smart bathroom fittings and room furniture. The room is very clean and bright! The staff is very helpful and excellent! Air conditioner is excellent! Two things annoyed us... More

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 Our room was quaint, slightly outdated but cosy and...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.
