“The Ultimate Experience In Porto”
Reviewed July 11, 2011

As the owner of two rental properties in Paris, I appreciate what it takes to create a truly outstanding B&B -- and without a doubt, Antonio & Caterina have created a flawless guest experience in the stunningly beautiful 4 Rooms, located in the charming Old Foz District of Porto. Their incredible attention to detail, their warm, personal welcome and their love of the city of Porto is what makes their property so special. From the beautiful architecture and hand-selected furnishings to the gourmet breakfasts from the adjacent 5-star Pedro Lemos Restaurant, everything is handled with tremendous care. They happily accommodated our vegetarian dietary requirements, arranged for tours and made sure that our every desire was met. Antonio & Caterina run this business because they truly enjoy sharing their city with others. It's a labor of love, and it shows. Porto is rich with history, art, architecture and of course that delicious Porto wine. Take a day trip to Braga, and another to the Douro Valley (we had a fabulous lunch on the river at Restaurant D.O.C.). Old Foz is fun to explore, and be sure to end your day with a sunset dinner or drink at the Shis beach house, a five minute walk from 4 Rooms.You won't be sorry you stayed here, and you will surely return.

Our stay at 4Rooms exceeded all expectations. The passion, enthusiasm and dedicated service made a most memorable and wonderful stay. The 4Rooms team unlocked Porto's secrets for us in terms of where to visit, what to see and where to dine--then on top of all this the wonderful accommodation where so much thought has gone into every aspect of the design. Breakfast each morning was a delicious treat. The dining recommendations were superb. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit they arranged to the Douro Valley.

We recommend 4Rooms to you--you will not be disappointed!!!

We received a lovely welcome on our arrival from Antonio and Sophia. Catarina served us a wonderful breakfast each morning and gave us lots help in understanding where to visit in Porto. We cannot praise 4 rooms highly enough. Very clean and comfortable and a spendid breakfast to start the day. 4Rooms was ideally located for us, being in the quieter Foz district of Porto close to the seafront & beaches for lovely walks. A trip into Porto city centre is easily achieved by 'old world' electric trams, bus or taxi. We would certainly recommend to others and hope to make a return visit in the future. Thanks to Antonio, Sophia & Catarina.

Why? The design is of an award winning level. The breakfast coming from a nearby quality restaurant makes a perfect start of the day. But most of all the care for every detail, and the relaxed and natural way in which the hosts go completely out of their way to make the stay meet expectations is exceptional. They understand how to keep the perfect balance of maintaining informal contact and respecting privacy and need for quiet holidays.
When the hosts learned some of us were architects, we were personally guided to some of Porto's contemporary architectural highlights (some still under construction) getting very detailled and interesting explantions by the owner of 4rooms.

We found the best place to stay in Porto, for sure. The staff is extremely careful, and always available to give any type of information and advices. All the rooms and the common areas are full of details and really enjoyable. Excellent breakfast. At the end, an unforgattable experience.

Room Tip: Every room is perfect: no noise and nice view.
