A Home Away From Home

5 sur juillet 16, 2017

We spent 8 nights at the wonderful Guest House Douro (GHD) in mid May 2017. We chose GHD for our stay based on its outstanding reviews and we weren't disappointed. Our experience was that it more than lived up to its excellent reviews. Carmen was very helpful and responsive when we made our booking. She was helpful again with tips on the best way for us to reach GHD when travelling from Lisbon to Porto by train. A room with a view was only available for part of our stay, though both rooms we stayed in were excellent and the view was spectacular. The breakfasts provided by Joao were great too. During our stay my wife became quite ill with a bad cold and Carmen organised a visit to the doctor, then acted as translator over the phone while the doctor (who didn't speak English) examined my wife. Joao then organised a special meal that the doctor recommended. In the evenings, after we returned from dinner, we particularly enjoyed our chats with Carmen and Joao, and appreciated all the sightseeing tips they gave us. GHD is well situated right on the bank of the Douro and within walking distance to most of the tourist sites in Porto and its historic building has been beautifully renovated. We thoroughly recommend staying at this lovely guest house when visiting Porto.


Best place to stay in Porto

Guest House Douro is easily our favorite place to stay. Accomodations are immaculate, with no detail overlooked. The breakfast (included in the reasonably priced room rates) is phenomenal and includes 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.


Perfect

5 sur novembre 06, 2013

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

A most EXCELENT stay!

5 sur octobre 31, 2012

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

5 sur avril 30, 2012

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.


What a trip!

4,8 sur juillet 06, 2011

My boyfriend and I, stayed at this guest house for two days, and we really wish we could have stayed longer. Though the rooms were small, Carmen and Joao made us feel at home and welcome. They were able to provide us with places to see in Porto, as well as show us the best places to eat. I cannot wait to return.


Details, Details, Details

5 sur avril 16, 2011

Guest House Douro is terrific. Carmen and Joao see to every detail. The maps they provide are hand marked IN ADVANCE with a variety of special places to visit; because they aren't preoccupied with marking maps on the spot, they are able to focus on guests' interests and tastes and then individualize their recommendations. By the time we reached Porto, we were ready to hire a private guide for a day, but found no need after several consultations with Carmen, Joao and their assistant. Cleanliness is sacrosanct. Best of all: when Carmen or Joao made dinner reservations on our behalf, we snagged the best table in the house! May the Guest House Douro never change.


The Best B&B I Have Ever Stayed At

4,8 sur avril 16, 2011

While the rooms are small, this is more then made up for by the location, the service, the cleanliness and the outstanding breakfast. The owners and the staff go out of their way to make your stay as if you were at home and knew the answers to everything. Ask and they will help you have a wonderful experience.
