Simple and tidy inner city budget accommodation close to the center of Porto, with everything in easy walking distance. Stylish character rooms and friendly staff. Perfect for a couple of nights stay in this exquisite city with your lover.

I was looking for an inexpensive place to spend a few nights and Alvares Cabral Guest House was perfect. I got a shared bathroom, but if you're looking for something nicer they have it. The family that owns it are lovely, interesting people and have some great recommendations. Porto is great and I'd stay here again for sure.

We enjoyed our stay and the excellent WiFi. The host is welcoming and gave us good ideas for our first venture into the city with a discount/glass of wine in specific restaurants. The Guest House is well situated for easy walking access to the centre and the transport system (Trinidade metro). The house is a fine old town house with... More

It is a nice place, but we stayed in two guest houses as a part of our trip. And in terms of price and quality this one was not the best one. Location isn't good , and unfortunately , our room smelled slightly as basement. And highlight of the trip - our washroom didn't have a door which you can... More

Me and my girlfriend spent three nights in this guest house and we were very satisfied. It´s situated about 10 minutes walk from the centre and metro/bus. The room was nice and clean, bed was comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is also garden and small kitchen, where breakfast is served. We had a very nice stay here... More

Excellent place to stay for the value. Good location despite the fact it is at the top of the city. It takes 30min to get to Luis Bridge. Our room was very warm and cozy and the bed was very comfortable. Staff is very helpful, kind and friendly. They planned our visit and they even put a heater in our... More

For my husband and I, this was our first visit to Portugal and it couldn't have been better. Our stay at the Alvares Cabral Guest House was everything we could have asked for. We stayed in a double room, with a private bathroom. The house was very clean and so was our room. The hosts were also very helpful and... More

We stayed with you for 3 nights in Porto - we really liked the room, the style of the interior design, the useful information you shared with us. The location was also quite good. We particulary liked the attitude and friendly approach of George - one of the intendants. The only down side was the wifi quality in the rooms.... More

I stayed here during my trip to Porto beginning of September. On the plus side, the location is really good and the prices are excellent. However, I wouldn't recommend this for a solo traveler. The "solo room" is very small and very dark. The bed is tiny, about 1.65m long. I am short and I could fit in, but barely.... More

Alvares Cabral was everything what I saw on photos and read about. I stayed in single room with bathroom. Room was clean, wi-fi was working perfectly, flat TV with plenty of channels, location is close to downtown... what more do you need?
