This House is very well located giving easy access to both the transport links and the centre of town . The hosts take their time to show you the major sites on the map and how to reach them and take pride in the good customer service they provide .

The most expensive accomodation during our 2,5 week portugal, and nothing special. Maybe Porto is just expensive, for whatever what reason ( for Porto was nothing special for us too).
We had the triple room with own bathroom and gardendoors (not to be opened). The bathroom was tiny, we looked out at a blind wall, and the reception was friendly, but not more than that.
Pro: checq in possible during the night, 8 min. Walk to metro, 10 min walk to beginning city center,
a nice calm room, and a nice calm garden to rest in.
Suitable for young people, less for older.
Easy, good and cheap breakfast just 1 min. Walking up the road, at the square (cafe).
You have to pay for the water offered next to your bed.....curious.
Don't ask for a beer, they have, they don't know the price, and let you pay when you leave 7,50 for a half liter bottle....

Room Tip: Triple room with own bathroom is ok if you don't need a vieuw

Guest house is near center, easy parking if you come with car (with charge). Owners are great, very helpfull and extremly nice, speaking lots of languages. Rooms are clean and nice decorated, allthough ours had window through bathroom. But as it is old building that is renovated (with lot of care and style), they probably did not have another option. But it was very nice, would recommend everyone who plan to go to Porto.

Charming remodeled house 15 minutes walking distance to the center/riverside. Excellent location. Our room faced the delightful patio and it was very quiet. The rooms were ample and had mosquito nets in the windows.
The owners Raul and Roi were amazing. They treat their guests to appetizers and barbeque dinners twice a week. They gave us really good ideas about what to do in Portot, much better than in the tourist office. I recommend this guest house to anyone coming to Porto for an authentic experience and to taste the real Portuguese hospitality.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the inner patio.

We visited Porto in Aug 2013, spent 3 nights in Alvares Cabral Guest House. The staff are very nice and friendly, they give us quick overview of Porto, suggest 2days tour that were very helpfull. Reception is open 24h and have WiFi in every room.
Room was big and clean and we can recommend it to everyone.
