We really enjoyed our stay here. We had a large room at the front with a great city view. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was just OK. Choice was what you would expect in such an establishment. However we did not like the bread and croissant products which were cooked on-site. Several reviewers have obviously enjoyed this.... More

Our room had a private tiny high walled(3 storey) courtyard. Very nice for a glass of wine. The property is an ancient structure that has been done over recently in a contemporary style. Cookies, cake, tea and coffee are always available, at no extra charge. Very able staff that are happy to help.

This is a designer guesthouse with a streamlined modern artistic taste, so definitely no doilies to be found here! The atmosphere is super friendly, with helpful and informative staff who can help with all your tourist information needs. There are all day tea and biscuits on the landing, a fully stocked bar where you can sample port in the afternoon... More

We loved this guest house. The staff were amazing. Friendly, helpful, passionate about their jobs. They made a great breakfast every day. Our room was at the top of the house. Fabulous windows with an incredible view in 3 directions. Lots of stairs, but worth it. The perfect neighborhood. Beautiful staircase and skylight, cute little courtyard, views from the windows.

Fabulous location, fabulous room and exceptional service! Pedro greeted us on arrival, with a welcome glass of Port on the patio. Pedro's passion for the guest house was inspiring. The room was fabulous, breakfast exceptionally and fresh, the service we received exceeded some of the 5 star hotels we have stayed in. I would highly recommend to all. Pedro made... More

Excellent location, Pedro and Naida received us like family. The breakfast delicious and very tasty and fresh. Pedro helped us a lot and all his recommendations became incredible experiences. The parking was a little bit far and expensive but the rented car really worth that

Great location and friendly staff give advice about everything to see and do in Porto before even getting to your room. Wifi worked perfectly. Plenty of plugs in the room for recharging devices. Very decent breakfast for such a small place. Cookies left out for guests after reception closes, which is a nice touch. The only drawback here is if... More

The Cale Guest House was highly recommended to me by an architect/designer colleague who has great taste - so I knew it would be a sure bet. Even though it's located right in the heart of the city it is a lovely quiet retreat. The people are very gracious and helpful - and the breakfast is delicious with fresh and... More

Interesting place that was cozy and well situated. I stayed in the room with the garden which was lovely, however, since it doesn't receive any sun and the plants get watered often, it's quite damp even in the room. The room was simple but comfortable, aircon efficient, bathroom clean. Since I was leaving to begin my Camino early in the... More
