The guest house is situated in the centre of Porto with all important places in the immediate neighbourhood. On the ground floor is a supermarket which makes that the guest house itself is difficult to find. (The supermarket is also the only negative thing that can be said about the neighbourhood has every morning goods are being delivered which definitely wakes one up verly early). The guest house is an old town house that has been divided in several rooms. It needs sole getting used to at first sight but all rooms are very clean and furnished in a modern and light way. You'll find everything you need.
The breakfast is served at the reception and has a variety of choices. Crepes, fresh bread, french toast, fresh fruit, cheese and ham, yoghurts, hot chocolate, espresso ... All one needs.
During the day water, coffee and tea can be made in the kitchen which you can enjoy with the rest of the cake. There is also a variety of drinks and snacks that can be bought if one desires.
The best side of the hotel however is probably the service of the staff. It's clear it is their pleasure and joy to make their guests feel at home. We were welcomed with a coffee and got an update of everything to see and do in Porto. At breakfast everything was explained in detail and in the evening they went to a lot of trouble to give us detailed information on where to eat and what to eat. This place is truly recommended for exploring old Porto.
