“A dream city break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

A little gem right in the centre of Porto. Don't let the entrance to B The Guest worry you for as soon as you go in the warm welcome, fabulous décor an tranquillity of the place is a joy to experience. The bedroom, bathroom, breakfast room and sitting room are all top notch and are exceptional value on all aspects of what you would look for in accommodation. The only downside for some visitors might be the lack of a lift but if you are fit enough to walk around Porto then that would not be a problem climbing the beautifully polished wooden stairs.
We were given lots of excellent advice on eateries and places to visit by Elizabete who was extremely helpful and informative.
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for first class and great value accommodation. Hopefully we will get back again sometime.

Room Tip: A back room on the first floor was fab and the waft of the cakes from the bakery underneath in the m...

What a gem in the center of Porto. A perfect spacious room with a kitchenette, a little sitting area and a good size bathroom. Although the breakfastbuffet is small, it had everything we needed and it all tasted delicious. The staff is kind and helpful. Last but certainly not least: everything is very clean and tidy. A big fat A+ for this b&b!!!

Although unloading our luggage in front of the B&B was a bit nerve racking due to traffic, we relaxed quickly when we were warmly welcomed the minute we entered the building. When we came back from the parking garage which is very close by and costs EUR 12.00 for 24 hours, our luggage was already in our room. Thanks again for that. This place is very well designed with lots of artwork, preserved historical details as well as new furniture...great combination. We loved in particular in the lounge area (great job!) which unfortunately was closed late evenings. Staff was super friendly all the time (thanks again for recommending a great dental clinic). Our room was facing the back and more quiet part of the building with two large sized windows that let in plenty of daylight. Nicely sized room with plenty of space for personal belongings. Bathroom was a bit on the dark side but made up for it with great size and a rain shower. Breakfast was served in a separate modern room and was quite delicious with cakes, cheese, ham, jams, yogurt, fresh cut fruits etc , we might have added more diversity to the bread though. Location was fantastic, close to shopping and subway plus not far from all major parts of the city. Overall a great experience and a very positive surprise.

Room Tip: Our room was located on the second floor which was fine for us (less steps to the breakfast room and...

I am fully aware of my own lack of style, but can appreciate that other people have it. :) This place would go into that category. It is an old building renovated to a very high standard and with style to boot. It didn't feel overbearing or cold and pretentious, though, ( as I sometimes find "stylish" places to be) and that was very nice. We have stayed in some better and a whole lot of worse places and this would deserve a mention on the "good" list of places we would definitely recommend. The location is great, although better if you are not driving, as driving/parking in central Porto is not the most relaxing affair. They offer 24h parking for €12 at a nearby public parking for which you can get a ticket at the reception at check-in.

The young co-owner was really helpful and knowledgeable about what to see and do in Porto, and recommended a couple of good places to eat. Both were spot-on. Thanks for a pleasant stay.
