“Porto Hospitality At Its Finest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

A wonderful renovated old house with an absolute sweetheart (Mariana) as your host. We were warmly welcomed with a glass of Port wine after a long train ride from Lisbon. The room was large and spotlessly clean with a huge bathroom and plenty of closet space. There is no TV in the room, but after a long day of exploring Porto you really won't miss it. An amazing breakfast really got each day off to a good start. It featured fresh squeezed orange juice, local jelly, scrambled eggs, meats, cheese, yogurt and plenty of breads and croissants. And Mariana's restaurant suggestions were spot on! Local places that were very affordable and delicious. She also provided us with tons of information on Porto. The location is perfect as it's on a quiet street just a few blocks from the center of town. We had a very early flight so Mariana packed us some goodies and arranged for a really nice taxi driver to take us to the airport. She was probably the most gracious host we've ever had while traveling Europe for many years. Can't recommend 6Only enough!

You'd never know it from the outside, but the 6Only is large and quite spacious on the inside. As with most places in Portugal, be prepared to walk up a few stairs. It's clean, efficiently run, and perfectly located. I had thought that the location would be a bit out-of-the-way, but it was only about a five-minute walk from where we wanted to be.

Mariana was friendly and helpful, answered all of our questions and gave us recommendations. Our room was clean and comfortable, if a tiny bit cramped (we had the only twin room, and knew that it would be a bit small, but it wasn't nearly as small as other reviews have made it out to be). There was even a small patio so we could step outside for air.

Breakfast was simple, but plentiful and delicious. Checking in and out was smooth, and Mariana helped us deal with parking. I would definitely stay here again, and recommend it for any trip to Porto on a budget.

Run by fantastic, Mariana, who could not be more helpful. It is an old stone house converted to provide comfortable, contemporary-style, accommodation in the interior. Mariana provides a great breakfast and is an endless source of information. The surrounding area itself is not interesting, but it is only a short downhill walk to the Sao Bento railway station and the centre. The B& B represents excellent value and is a good place to stay in Porto for any holiday break.

This is an absolutely fabulous place to stay in a central but not touristy part of Porto. The house is a beautifully renovated old Porto house, with absolutely beautiful buildings opposite. Inside the house many of the original features have been retained eg large wooden staircases, granite lintels, but it has been modernised to make it comfortable - very light and airy inside. Architects were involved in the renovation, and that is obvious. It looks like design standard.
The breakfasts are fantastic - freshly squeezed orange juice, and interesting pastries. On one day Mariana baked the guests an orange zest cake. She was also very good at suggesting local restaurants to eat in, some of which are completely off the tourist track. It was a wonderful experience, and I have already recommended it to others.

Room Tip: I was in room 5, a twin room with a balcony looking over the back patio.

We had an amazing stay at the guesthouse. Arrived real early, and after being offered coffee and a place to rest, our room was ready for us. All the staff was incredibly friendly and helpfull and went out of their way to help is. All this said, everything ws so relaxed and we just had a really good stay.

The guesthouse is within 5 minutes walk of the old town, and easily accesible with local transport.

If you are going to Porto, do not think twice of booking a room here.

"6 Only Guesthouse" is the perfect place to stay in Porto. Marianna, who is the owner, of this fabulous guesthouse is located in a historical building in the middle of Porto. The rooms are spotless and have everything you need in a room (no TV). My husband and two grown children stayed here for 3 days and had a wonderful experience. Marianna is hard working and does everything to make your stay pleasant. Our luggage never arrived from Rome and she did not stop calling the airline until the luggage finally arrived. Breakfast is very tasty and the atmosphere is very hospitality. We will definitely be returning to 6 Only Guesthouse. A great city and a great place to stay. www.6only.pt

Room Tip: Room #1 is the best
