Fantástico conceito

4.6 on November 24, 2010

Estive uma noite no 4Rooms e tive o grato prazer de ser o 1º cliente português a usufruir deste sensacional espaço que tem a assinatura do arquitecto Souto Moura. O que mais me agradou, para além da excelência da innkeeper Catarina, foi o conceito. Situado numa zona de charme e muito próximo da Foz, o 4Rooms fez-me sentir como se estivesse na minha 2ª casa, já que depois do chek in, o 4Rooms ficou ... só para mim. Bem sei que nem sempre poderá acontecer, uma vez que o outro quarto pode também estar ocupado, mas o facto de ter a chave exterior e mais ninguém no hotel, me agradou. No serviço nada falha, já que o profissionalismo e simpatia da Catarina se encarregam de nos proporcionar uma estadia sem qualquer tipo de falhas. O jantar no Restaurante Pedro Lemos ( a 30 metros do 4Rooms), que também nos fornece o pequeno almoço, é sempre uma experiência gastronómica inesquecivel. Recomendo vivamente o 4Rooms... eu voltarei. Obrigado Catarina Duarte Nuno Pereira

Catarina is lovely and so is 4Rooms. I spilt my stay in Porto between the historic city and Foz the beautiful, quiet part of Porto. Catarina and her father personally take care of you and the rooms are spotlessly clean and very stylish. The gourmet breakfast is a pleasant surprise. All in all a superb experience and I would definitely go back for more. Priya, Mumbai.

Oasis of Calm

4.0 on October 29, 2010

This little jewel was just the get-away we were looking for. The whole experience was delightful from start to finish. Catarina and her family gave us such a warm welcome it felt like we were visiting friends. They arranged pick up at the airport, a private tour along the Duoro River, reservations at an excellent nearby restaurant, even a candlelit massage after a long day of sight-seeing. The house was quiet and peaceful and I can't wait to return.

Innkeeper Response

Hi Jean Luc. Thank you very much for your comments and for being so patient about web site problems. The best for you and your father. See you next summer!

Excellent Experience!

5 on September 25, 2010

Our stay at 4Rooms in Porto was an excellent experience made possible by the design of the place, the quality of both the place and service, the location and above all the attention of the innkeeper Catarina. 4Rooms is a special place with its breakfast, design and quality and definitely worth a visit. The location in the old town and close to the ocean, while a short taxi, bus or tram ride to the center of town makes it one of the most interesting and prestigious neighborhoods of Porto that allows you to explore the real Porto from a unique perspective.

Innkeeper Response
