About

Part of World Heritage Site, the house is classified as a national monument. The only bed and breakfast on waterfront Ribeira, Porto's most interesting neighbourhood. Stunning waterfront views to River Douro and emblematic bridge as well as one of Ribeira's most ancient streets. Arqueological excavations during renovations revealed Roman beaches under the house. Attention to healthy solutions such as choice of air conditioning (water and not air), wood floors, cotton sheets, etc. Personalized service, attention to detail. Located only steps away from the most interesting monuments and boat tours.

Perfect

Highest marks to Carmen and Joao. Everything everyone says about the friendliness, the cleanliness, the owners' knowledge of the town, the views, the marvelous breakfasts included in the price, is still true (we visited there in October, 2013). Even more, I knew nothing about touring the Douro or the town of Porto. However, by emailing Carmen in advance, I received her excellent suggestion to reserve with Douro Exclusive, a wonderful husband and wife tour team that showed us the Douro River and its port history, all in a comfortable van drive and river excursion. Carmen also arranged for tables at two fantastic restaurants packed with locals, both just steps away from the Guest House. Our room was small, but Carmen had kindly warned us about its size before we booked. During our stay, we certainly didn't mind the smallness of what turned out daily to be our sparkling, fresh-flower-enhanced room, overlooking the Douro, with a bed more comfortable than ours at home, and a shower with more hot water than we ever enjoyed in Paris. Highly recommended. Edie and Robert De Avila, California

Guest House Douro is first rate. My wife and I had a great stay there last August. Carmen and Joao accommodated our every want and need, went above and beyond. We were pleased with every aspect of our visit, from the elegant yet comfortable room, to the delicious, varied breakfast, to the accurate directions and useful local tips and information. Fantastic bed and breakfast; we recommend it most highly.


Delightful

We recently stayed at Guest House Douro. Porto is a great city and Guest House Douro is perfectly located overlooking the Douro River. The owners, Carmen and Joao, were a great help in choosing places to dine and shop. Immaculate rooms, very comfortable beds, and delightful breakfasts (made even more delightful by Joao). We will definitely return


Best place to stay in Portugal

We recently had our second visit to Guest House Douro. We had previously stayed there two years ago when visiting Porto on our honeymoon. We enjoyed Porto and Guest House Douro so much the first time that we wanted to visit it again and explore other parts of Portugal, including the Douro Valley and Lisbon. While we enjoyed the other parts of the country, our tour convinced us that Guest House Douro and the city of Porto are our favorites. Just like the first visit, the accomodations were immaculate, with no detail overlooked. The breakfast (included in the reasonably priced room rates) is phenomenal and showcases amazing fruits, cheeses, meats and breads of Portugal. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and had great insights into things to see, where to dine, shop and visit in the city. We had an amazing time and will certainly be back to Guest House Douro again.
