We really loved our short stay in Porto and if we could of changed our vacation plans we would of definitely stayed longer at the Casa dos Loios. The boutique hotel was really wonderful and the staff were awesome! They were very welcoming and made us feel special (which after having some trouble in France - we adored all the attention). The staff arranged a morning tour which was perfect as we only had a day and we were able to at least get a feeling for Porto. Must go back! The location was perfect walking distance to the river, metro (train) and many sites. We got there by taxi in the dark and weren't too sure, as there was only a tall door amongst buildings on a narrow street - but once in, we saw how perfect it all was. The Shiadu Boutique Guesthouses are very professionally run (we also stayed at the Monte Belvedere in Lisbon) - it was great staying at both.
