Atmosphere had an Indian flair and was cosy. Here is the but.... There is a disco just up from the guest house and from our room we were disturbed several times a night with the noise.... More

I was a bit concerned, having read several reviews but having stayed in riads, in Marrakech, I knew what to expect and was not surprised. Its everything the brochure said it was. My room was clean and spacious and the bed made daily. I had a private bathroom separated by a few steps and a key for sole use.One small... More

Before I start, let me first say that I've been travelling for 2 months and have stayed in over 15 places in 3 countries. This is so you know that I do have some experience in rating a guesthouse. We were first very happy that the bus let us off right in front of the building than a young man... More

A Very cool a laid back guest house to stay, very nice people. Very clean and cosy. Breakfast is basic but enough and we have a very nice pateo to aet it in! The location is also very good, quite near to the town center. And fairly close to the subway station of Marques.

I was there with my boyfriend in July, very shortly and we would not come back there again.Not even for one night. Main reason is due to lack of cleanliness. Not only that on the bedsheets were hair, it was on the floor and the bathroom too. Not to mention dust. The cover on the bed looked also dirty and... More

A good surprise from the beginning: I had booked a bed in a 6 bed dormroom and I got a single bedroom for the same price, and the room was really nice. They also offered me to have breakfast on my arrival even though I was a bit past the end time. I really liked the Arabic atmosphere with tapestries... More

I spent 2 nights at Porto Riad Guesthose and I could not wait to leave. Very nice oriental decorations and stuff, but dirty.

Porto riad is a very nice guesthouse. Staff was very friendly and the breakfast was very nice. The outdoor area was very cosy. The guesthouse is very close to downtown. Would definitely stay there again.

I chosed this guest house for a relaxing weekend in Porto with my partner, mainly for the nice location (10mins by feet from city center in a quiet zone with a lot of parking spots) and for the theme of the place (north african style). And I was amazed when I arrived: the staff was very kind, talkative and warm.... More
