Four Rooms is hard to find... but once you find it you will love it. 4 beautifully modern design rooms, with all amenities present.

Good service, a nice, personal breakfast. The personnel is a bit too humble to my opinion (that's what you get for being Dutch), but friendly and always willing to help you with tips, reservations and the likes.

We had a great stay at this hidden gem. We had a little trouble locating it but once we did our worries were over. Fabiana parked our car and took us to the garden suite which was perfect. She gave us great recommendations for food and sites to see, made us delicious breakfast each morning and there was fresh cake in the afternoon. When you stay here it's like staying with a friend, a friend that knows all the cool stuff to do! We loved it and would definitely return!

For the first time I take the time and effort to write a little review.
We found 4R's on an architecture website and stayed 3 nights with 2 young children (2-4 yrs) in the Sky Loft. The spacious room in the annex was beautifully decorated with attention to every detail.
It was a perfect base away from the crowded area's to explore Porto and very close to the Atlantic Ocean.
Our host Catharina was very kind and helpful, she made the stay even more pleasant. The kids really loved her.
Breakfast was delicious and something to look forward to every morning.
Since we were there over a busy summer weekend 4R's offered to organize a garage in advance.
4 rooms is a little gem which combines hospitality, a perfect service, attention to detail with design and architecture.

We spent 3 wonderful days at 4Rooms. We loved all the details: every day a different breakfast, the daily change of towels, chocolates or cookies in the evening, etc ...
Catarina was the perfect host, it felt like staying at a friends house. Much better than a hotel!

The location is excellent, the 500 bus around the corner takes you right into downtown Porto and the beach is only 5 minutes away from the hotel.

Room Tip: We stayed with our 3 year old son in the DobleS room, lovely design, small but chic and it was just...

I wanted to share our lovely experience at Four Rooms and Porto at the end of June 2013. I travelled there with my wife for a week and chose our accommodation with the help of Tripadvisor. Luckily, all the positive reviews were spot on: Four Rooms is a friendly, quiet, relaxed and spotless place to stay, with quite reasonable fees as well. We stayed in the Double S room, which is the smallest of the four rooms. It was quite small, indeed, but not overly so. We were there for a week and could fit all our summer clothes into the wall closet while our luggage was kindly taken into storage by our hosts.

The location is perfect, just a short walk from the Atlantic ocean. The bus and tram stops to Porto are close by as well, and the trip takes around 15 minutes. If you're feeling lazy and want to splurge on a taxi every now and then, don't hesitate - the taxi trip from the centre of Porto to Four Rooms cost around 6 or 7 euros. However, it's quite easy and handy to use the regional public transportation system with a rechargeable travelcard, if you're not traveling by car.

Catarina is the most friendly and attentive hostess you can imagine. She helped us with restaurant recommendations and reservations, called us taxis and was always ready to help and answer all our questions. She and the rest of the staff prepared a delicious breakfast every morning with a bread selection, müsli, fruit and yoghurt, omelettes, chorizo, salami and freshly squeezed juice, tea and coffee. In addition to all that, once she even went to the small grocery store on my behalf to get some potato chips when I was already almost out the door - for no charge at all. I think that sums up the helpfulness and dedication of her and everybody at Four rooms.

We booked this hotel off the back of the huge number of positive reviews and it did not disappoint. We stayed in the Skyloft which was in its own seperate annex and beautifully furnished. The staff could not have been more helpful and the breakfast was delicious. Superb value.

My boyfriend and I decided to stay at 4Rooms Porto based on the consistently exceptional reviews posted on Trip Advisor. Needless to stay we were not disappointed. Our 2 night stay was seamless and comfortable. Upon our arrival we were greated by Fabiana who showed us around the b&b and immediately offered us some refreshments and a slice of their freshly made scrumptious cake. Our room was neat, organized and modern, much like the rest of the building. White and cream colour walls, furniture and accessories gives the place a spa like feel and is a refreshing take on the emerging modern architecture that had taken Portugal by storm in the past few years. The bed was amazing, so comfortable that it was hard getting up in the morning. The full bathroom was great and the pressure of the shower was perfect; they must have adjusted based on previous reviews. We did not take breakfast at 4 Rooms as we wanted to explore the different pasteleirias in the area. The neighborhood was quiet which was a nice change coming from Lisbon and the Algarve. Fabiana and Catarina took the time to highlight some important points of interest on a map that she provided to us. 4rooms is located near a bus and tram stop that makes it easy getting to the city centre, no more than 20 minutes away by tram. I highly recommend 4rooms to couples looking for a peaceful and romantic retreat. It was by far the most intimate place we stayed at during our 2 week vacation in Portugal; providing a unique alternative to a hotel. We will definitely be back for a longer stay!
