I should have written this review a long time ago, but the stay was so amazing, that I can remember everything about it. Perfect location, great hosts, amazing breakfasts. I can't say enough about how perfect my trip was to Porto because of the Guest House. I love this place and want to return soon, just to stay here! They... More

Everything written on TA about this small hotel is true- it is perfection! We had room 202 overlooking the water-full moon for our stay was an added bonus. The hotel has been cleverly renovated with nothing left to chance- a small but adequate lift to transport suitcases on arrival beautifully furnished room with a comfortable bed, great pillows( so often...

We loved everything about our stay at Guest House Douro.....the house is compact and well designed and the location couldn't be better. Carmen and Joao are warm and gracious hosts who gave us excellent tips for touring Porto and great restaurant recommendations. Breakfast with Joao was a real treat - he makes a wonderful cappuccino!

Everything that all the recent guests have said on TA is true. This really is the VERY best. So we want to add some other things about the immense characters that are Joao and Carmen the owners, Sonia the wonderful "assistant/receptionist" and the amazing cleaner Fatima (don't think we have ever been anywhere so clean). So, they can arrange most... More

This has to be the best BnB we've ever stayed in. Carmen and Joao made us feel like family! We had room 202 (with the big balcony doors overlooking the river) for two nights. Porto was our first stop in Portugal, but Carmen and Joao made sure that we always had something amazing to do, a great place to eat... More

This is one of the best accommodation experiences ever. Despite the close confines it is beautifully presented and the location and attention to every detail more than make up for this. When you arrive expect to be spoilt and this is prof that providing helpful service is the Portuguese way.

My husband and I followed the Rick Steves tour of Portugal. We should have spent at least 2 nights in Porto, we only had one. We stayed at Guest House Douro, we ranked the bed as tied for first place for comfort, it was so cozy. The view was amazing, the bed so comfortable and the breakfast a treat for... More

The rooms are spectacular and the view in room 202 of the Douro River and waterfront activity is to be savored. Everyone at the Guest House is so helpful and friendly, they were like meeting old friends. The port, coffee, and breakfast were wonderful. The presentation fabulous.....loved, loved, it. Thank you Sonia, Joao, and Carmen! Susan S
