“Enjoy Foz and discover Porto and all the North of Portugal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Catarina, Antonio, Fabiana and the rest of the team are fantastic - Each one helps make the experience at 4Rooms unique in its own way - the rooms are sparkling clean, the breakfast is excellent and each room has its own character - we know what we are talking about as we stayed there for 3 weeks and tried out all 4 rooms!! But the rooms and the breakfast are only part of it - Catarina knows the North of Portugal like no one else and she managed to give us tips of places to see and things to do that were off the beaten track - in others words thanks to Catarina and of course her dad Antonio we discovered Porto and an additional 16 cities and medieval towns through the eyes of people who love this region and are passionate about all the tips they give whether this is a church, a cathedral, a restaurant, a winery and so forth. As a result we took 900 pictures during our 3 week stay - thanks to Antonio, Catarina we lived the holiday before, during and after - thank you Catarina, Antonio and Fabiana for a magical stay at 4Rooms and for treating my parents, my wife, 2 year old boy and me as family - We will never forget this period in your beautiful establishment in Foz right next to the river and ocean as well as all those great restaurants you recommended! As promised I will not give details as I will leave this to the lucky future guests to discover what 4Rooms is about and how special their stay will be as they travel back into the past in this beautiful region of Portugal!

Room Tip: All rooms are great but in my opinion the most charming one is the Garden loft however if you travel...

If you are seeking a wonderful hostess, Katerina is the best. The location in the Foz is perfect for the traveler who wants to be far from the tourist scene but close to the most beautiful part of Porto...the river and the ocean. By far the best bed and breakfast in all of Portugal. They arranged a private drive to the Douro Valley wine country. This part of beautiful Portugal should not be missed...it was our most favorite day. Thank you for a wonderful stay,

Can't say enough about the 4Rooms. Hands down the best place we stayed during our 10 days in Portugal, and quite possible the best place we've ever stayed. Located in Foz, which is a 10 minute bus ride from the overly touristic area of Ribeira. Having been to both areas, Foz is hands down the place to be in Porto. Great restaurants (recommended by 4rooms), beaches, bars, etc. Getting to any other area is quite easy on the 500 bus. Think it costs 1.60 euros.

Staff couldn't be any nicer. We were met with coffee and cake, both excellent. Breakfast was served at our convenience in the garden patio, and the food was absolutely incredible. Asked and received great recommendations on restaurants in the area, help with train travel and schedules. Again, just unparalleled and Incredible service, incredible people, incredible location and accommodations, and I can't recommend the 4rooms enough. We stayed in the room to the right of the staircase (cant remember the name right now), but it was spacious and comfortable, and the tub/whirlpool was awesome and a quite welcome surprise. Very much hope to be back in the not too distant future. Would recommend to anyone.

Comfortable rooms, small hotel, minutes from the beach in the Foz section of old Porto. Good places to eat only a short stroll. Very nice breakfast included with the room. The staff (especially Katerina) were wonderful; friendly and helpful and gave us great recommendations for places to eat and things to do. They even made calls to reserve spots for us at a Port house - as well as some things in the Douro valley. And even arranged a quick doctor's for a medical need.

Room Tip: one room had nice, integrated computer/tv access for slightly higher rate

We stayed at the Four Rooms in Porto in mid-August. Actually this boutique hotel is in Foz, on the ocean, about a ten minute bus ride from the main part of town. Foz is an old fishing village, with beautiful small houses and cobblestone streets, and worth a stroll on its ramparts and beach. It is the perfect place to stay since Porto has lots of tourists and a complicated street grid. The Four Rooms is beautiful and peaceful. Everything smelled so clean and fragrant. Though the rooms are quite small, they are perfectly designed and private. Breakfast was wonderful and different each day. Fabiana, who was the caretaker, was attentive, friendly and helpful--she couldn't have been nicer. An added bonus is that the hotel has a relationship with Pedro Lemos, a fabulous chef restaurant, two blocks away. The meal, the wine and the service blew us away. A definite plus.

Room Tip: The garden apartment, though small, has a tiny living room and its own entrance. Never heard a sound...

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...
