One of the highlights of our 2 week Portuguese vacation. As often in Portugal, the hotel does not look special from outside, but is outstanding once you get inside. The neighbourhood looks shabby, but perfectly safe, and has undeniable Porto spirit. It is 15 min walk from downtown Porto. The hotel is small, just several rooms, so it feels warm... More

My husband and I spent two nights at this hotel. The staff, specially Diogo, were very nice and helpful. Our room, that looked like an old attic (Named Lautrec) was well appointed, clean, very luminous and spacious. The only drawback were the two sets of stairs to climb up to reach the room. If you have problems with stairs, this... More

Booked this for two guests of mine. Great location in the nice area of the city, walking distance from everything central, clean, secure, well appointed. Would definitely use again as price represents great value for money/comfort provided against city centre hotels.

It's a good place to stay in Porto, if you don't want to spend lots of money on lodgings, still want to be close to all attractions. No need to use a car getting to historical center and visiting all main attractions, of going to the La Ribeira (yes, you need to walk, but that's the point of visiting new... More

Our unit #3 was a 2 level flat. The first floor had a sofa, TV, table and a mini-kitchen including microwave, dishware, stemware and utensils, sink, and a 2 position counter top range (see photo). Half way up to the bedroom level was a rather spacious bathroom. The upper level had two single beds. There were other units that were... More

Great stay for a group of 4 friends. We stayed on the first floor with 2 beds and 2 roll out beds. The room was adorable, roomy and comfortable. No problems with noise or disturbances. The welcome port wine and and cinnamon crackers were wonderful. The morning breakfasts were amazing with plenty of food. Our first morning we woke up... More

Great ultra modern guesthouse in what appears to be a recently refurbished older building. Friendly and helpful staff. Ultra clean. Everything worked as it should and looked almost new. Arrival was accompanied with a welcoming glass of port and biscuits/cookies and a sit-down conversation with the host on how to get around the city and what to see. Great introduction... More

We arrived very late in the evening from the train stationand were kindly greeted and shown our room. The room was modern, spacious and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and the outdoor seating was very relaxing. We spent both days wandering the city, and felt we were close enough to everything yet far enough away from the tourist things to... More

I usually do not write reviews but this time I feel obliged to do so. This guesthouse is great! We got a hearty welcome when we arrived, including a glass of the famous port wine and a useful input about the city and its attractions by the present staff. The hotel is small with only 9 rooms but as a... More

Fine Arts Guesthouse is a great place to stay while you're in Porto. I absolutely adored how dedicated and attentive the staff were. We arrived ahead of our check in time and were offered Port wine and biscuits while waiting for our room to be ready. They took great care of us and for that I can only recommend them.... More
