“Chic contemporary design and beyond 5* service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

4Rooms was recommended to us by a Portuguese friend and we were extremely satisfied with our experience there. The chic interior design was completely unexpected from the modest and unassuming exterior facade. Although the rooms were small, we expected this and had packed light so it was not a problem. 4Rooms is located in Foz, 10-15 minutes by bus out from the centre of the city and the commute was not a problem: I usually like to be in the city centre but here the location was perfect as the bus journey was short and scenic, and we were minutes away from the beach and some great restaurants. What impressed us the most was Fabiana's and Catarina's level of service: both went out of their way to ensure we felt at home to the extent that when we lost something in an unknown taxi one evening, they miraculously managed to track it down and arrange delivery the next morning... We would definitely stay again and recommended 4Rooms to anyone looking for a relaxing short break in Porto. Thank you so much for being so hospitable, friendly and welcoming!

Room Tip: We stayed for one night in the Double N room and in the Garden Loft room on our second night. I pref...

Stayed at 4Rooms for 2 nights with my partner in August 2013. The hotel arranged for a swift pickup at the airport, and our driver was very nice and gave us a lot of advice and tips. We were then greeted by Fabiana, and she kindly directed us to the Sky Loft, an amazing place to stay, which is in a separate house across the main building. The spacious room exudes calm simplicity and sophistication. We really enjoyed the architecture, the overhead window, the elevated door...every inch of the hotel has been minutely fine tuned for guests' comfort. The bathroom was wonderful, and the kitchenette was a nice addition to the room. Included breakfast at hotel was a great start of our days.
Everyone at 4Rooms was amazing and always listening to comments and requests. A special thanks to Catarina and António for helping organise the stay and Fabiana for such a wonderful welcome, amazing smile and impeccable service.
Since we wanted to stay a third night but there weren't any availabilities, Catarina kindly suggested to hop on a superb Feel Douro Yacht, tour Porto on the Douro, have dinner and sleep on board. This was a great plus to our trip, we loved every moment of being on board.
Again I wish to thank everyone involved in making this a blissful trip. We will come again and recommend all our friends and family to come and stay!

Four Rooms is hard to find... but once you find it you will love it. 4 beautifully modern design rooms, with all amenities present.

Good service, a nice, personal breakfast. The personnel is a bit too humble to my opinion (that's what you get for being Dutch), but friendly and always willing to help you with tips, reservations and the likes.

We had a great stay at this hidden gem. We had a little trouble locating it but once we did our worries were over. Fabiana parked our car and took us to the garden suite which was perfect. She gave us great recommendations for food and sites to see, made us delicious breakfast each morning and there was fresh cake in the afternoon. When you stay here it's like staying with a friend, a friend that knows all the cool stuff to do! We loved it and would definitely return!

For the first time I take the time and effort to write a little review.
We found 4R's on an architecture website and stayed 3 nights with 2 young children (2-4 yrs) in the Sky Loft. The spacious room in the annex was beautifully decorated with attention to every detail.
It was a perfect base away from the crowded area's to explore Porto and very close to the Atlantic Ocean.
Our host Catharina was very kind and helpful, she made the stay even more pleasant. The kids really loved her.
Breakfast was delicious and something to look forward to every morning.
Since we were there over a busy summer weekend 4R's offered to organize a garage in advance.
4 rooms is a little gem which combines hospitality, a perfect service, attention to detail with design and architecture.

We spent 3 wonderful days at 4Rooms. We loved all the details: every day a different breakfast, the daily change of towels, chocolates or cookies in the evening, etc ...
Catarina was the perfect host, it felt like staying at a friends house. Much better than a hotel!

The location is excellent, the 500 bus around the corner takes you right into downtown Porto and the beach is only 5 minutes away from the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed with our 3 year old son in the DobleS room, lovely design, small but chic and it was just...

I wanted to share our lovely experience at Four Rooms and Porto at the end of June 2013. I travelled there with my wife for a week and chose our accommodation with the help of Tripadvisor. Luckily, all the positive reviews were spot on: Four Rooms is a friendly, quiet, relaxed and spotless place to stay, with quite reasonable fees as well. We stayed in the Double S room, which is the smallest of the four rooms. It was quite small, indeed, but not overly so. We were there for a week and could fit all our summer clothes into the wall closet while our luggage was kindly taken into storage by our hosts.

The location is perfect, just a short walk from the Atlantic ocean. The bus and tram stops to Porto are close by as well, and the trip takes around 15 minutes. If you're feeling lazy and want to splurge on a taxi every now and then, don't hesitate - the taxi trip from the centre of Porto to Four Rooms cost around 6 or 7 euros. However, it's quite easy and handy to use the regional public transportation system with a rechargeable travelcard, if you're not traveling by car.

Catarina is the most friendly and attentive hostess you can imagine. She helped us with restaurant recommendations and reservations, called us taxis and was always ready to help and answer all our questions. She and the rest of the staff prepared a delicious breakfast every morning with a bread selection, müsli, fruit and yoghurt, omelettes, chorizo, salami and freshly squeezed juice, tea and coffee. In addition to all that, once she even went to the small grocery store on my behalf to get some potato chips when I was already almost out the door - for no charge at all. I think that sums up the helpfulness and dedication of her and everybody at Four rooms.
