“Catarina We Love You!!!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Our hostess astounded us with her helpfulness and because of her we ate amazing food, tasted some of the best port in Porto, and saw all the best places. We felt like rock stars in the mornings with our gourmet breakfasts and were super impressed with our modern room. Thanks again!!

Room Tip: Stay here!

Inspired through several positive comments on tripadvisor we went to 4rooms ourselves to experience this place. We have had a wonderful stay and enjoyed our trip to Porto very much. The astonishing comments on tripadvisor about 4rooms can only be reconfirmed from our side as well. The Garden Loft was stylishly arranged with the necessary love for details. The colours of the interior design merge with the elements of the garden area creating a harmonic atmosphere that gets you just into the right mood when coming back home from a long long walk around Porto. The attentiveness of the service was extraordinary. The breakfast served again with much love for details and a fine taste for delicious food. The staff at 4rooms know how to do it. 4Rooms and its team has contributed to a great experience in Porto and we'd like to express our gratitude for that. Definitely our place to stay when we get back to Porto the next time.

Again with the superlatives- there just aren't enough. Catarina is like a personal travel agent, friend, and miracle worker all in one. From arranging a car to pick us up from the airport (we had a late arrival) and drop us at the train station, planning and arranging our train trip to Lisboa, making restaurant reservations, and everything in between, Catarina made us feel like family and somehow also like royalty. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to the loft room, which was perfect. If Porto wasn't such a wonderful city, we would have never left the room. It was so comfortable and clean. The bath products were dreamy. Having a computer in-room with all sorts of music was great. The garden where we ate breakfast was so beautiful. I recommend wandering around the neighborhood of Foz do Douro- it was one of our favorite places in Portugal- it felt very local and mellow. I just can't say enough about how great our stay was. I think this is THE place to stay in Porto.

Room Tip: I'm sure all the rooms are incredible, but the Sky Loft is perfection. So private and beautiful.

My husband and I stayed at 4Rooms in the "loft" arriving to a super clean, nicely laid out, bright apartment despite no windows (there was a huge skylight which let in a lot of natural light). It had all amenities anyone should need no matter how long the stay. The host's attentiveness and the daily service were impeccable. Reservations were made, recommendations were offered and Catarina was readily available to assist in anything a person required. She offered practical suggestions for getting around the city which worked out splendidly. They even surprised us with champagne and port truffles for my husband's birthday. We felt very comfortable in both our "loft" and when we visited the main house for breakfast. The location is ideal being a very short walk to many restaurants and shops and the beautiful sandy beach. We would definitely recommend this B&B.

We stayed in a lovely apartment whose design was excellent. Catrina couldn't have been more helpful and we felt looked after. Catrina's help on what to see was appreciated.
Dinner recommendations were great & breakfast fabulous. We liked the quiet, being able to play our music & the walks along the ocean. Catrina organised a car to pick us up from the train station which worked out really well. Each time we needed a taxi she also gave the driver details on where we wanted to go. Due to train strikes in Lisbon we needed to come to Porto a day earlier than planned - our reservation was extended with no trouble at all. Porto was our favourite place in our first visit to Portugal and 4Rooms was the best place we stayed and the value for money was amazing. Catrina even organised to take our laundry to the laundry for us so we didn't spend our holiday time there, the cost was what we would have paid for self service laundry.

Usually I do not write the second review for the same property but 4Rooms deserves it!
Booked my second visit to this property to celebrate my Birthday. I guess there is enough said on how beautiful property is but beside that I think service they offer for the guest goes beyond expectations! I had a wonderful time during my stay. All was arranged to the smallest details from airport pickup to restaurant reservations! The guys running this place gives you perfect tips on places to visit, restaurants etc. No matter how many times you will return to Porto they will always have tips for you to make every visit to Porto feel special!
Thank you again for a great care while in Porto!
