Clean, quiet, comfortable. Wonderful walking neighborhood. Room # 1 was bright and spacious with a high ceiling. Parking pass provided. Great restaurants and interesting shops nearby. Wifi. Would stay here again!

We booked into the Portland International guesthouse it was an easy booking we reserved room no 5 at the top of the house, surprisingly it was very quite and we hardly even saw any other guests during our stay. The room was nice and clean and the shared bathroom was also good. The breakfast was basic but that is all... More

This place is nice and room is great, we love the place and hope we could visit again. Location is nice since it is so close to a lot of Portland attraction (Nob Hill & Pearl District). Room is clean and spacious, Bathrooms are shared though. Mind you that parking spot could be tight if you park your car on... More

So glad to see more reviews, could not get in last time but referral was nice. This location and guests and management can't be beat for Portland. Everyone respects quiet time, so close to groc., restaurants, bakery, bagels, happy hours, etc. Quick walk from the light rail, trolley, etc. You do NOT need a car.

This is a cross between a sweet B&B and an upscale hostel. The rooms are nicely decorated with comfy beds and beautiful bedding. You share bathrooms but there are 3 of them and I never once met another person. You also share a kitchen where the hosts provide toast, coffee & tea, juices and other items depending on the day....

We just returned from a week long trip to Oregon and I am so glad we chose to stay here for 2 nights on our trip. We originally booked 1 night and loved it so much, we booked the last room for our final night stay in Portland a few days later. The host, Tim, was very friendly and welcoming.... More

On a long, long road trip all the way from New Jersey, my bestie and I found ourselves overwhelmed with the idea of turning back from Seattle to start heading home - so, we decided to take an unexpected detour to Portland. Can I just say... Best. Decision. Ever. In a bind, we ran to Trip Advisor in hopes of... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this room in Portland for two nights. I wanted the usual; clean, safe, inexpensive and well situated. And that's exactly what I found at the Portland International Guesthouse! I could also add; interesting, welcoming, friendly and fun to that list! First though, if you can't do stairs this won't be for... More
