Guest House Douro, and Carmen and Joao, are the perfect combination to create an extraordinary experience. The Guest House is perfectly located and impeccably updated and maintained.

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

If you are expecting a big, fancy place with a bar, restaurant, and all the trappings, this is not the place for you. But if you want impeccably clean rooms, nice fluffy towels and bathrobes, a fabulous breakfast with every kind of fruit you can imagine, and incredibly friendly and helpful hosts, this is the place.

We made a mistake staying at Guest House Douro. We stayed two days and really should have stayed at least seven. Carmen, Joao and Sonia were absolutely fabulous innkeepers as well as very helpful hosts. If there was anything more they could have done to make our visit more pleasurable, I don't know what it would be. Always friendly, helpful... More

We had planned to stay three nights at the Guest House Douro but due to airline rescheduling we ended up having only a day and a half at this wonderful place. That was far too short. The location is perfect for seeing the historical side of Porto, and the room, while small, was cleverly designed and executed to provide all... More

My wife and I recently stayed in Porto at this wonderful B&B. The location and position is simply perfect. From our windows we had the perfect view of the Douro river and across to the port houses on the other side. Gorgeous views during the day and magical at night. The owners Carmen and John are the best hosts. Their... More
