Property is centrally located, with clean and comfortable room, had a very good breakfast, but above all, the staff was great ! We were impressed with their friendliness, and willingness to help. Vera and Pedro were great ! The only downsides are the lack of elevator, if you need to carry heavy luggage upstairs, and the lack of parking, but...

Excellent location in the old part of Porto, with friendly helpful staff who provided great recommendations. We had a room at the back, so it was very quiet at night and we had easy access to the back terrace. They're very busy, so we're glad we booked early. Lots of things to do and see, and places to eat, close...

We booked a superior double room for a five night stay in Porto. The hotel was everything that we were looking for - great location, friendly and helpful staff, large clean room with comfortable king size bed and tasty, fresh breakfast. The main tourist area of Porto is quite compact but as you discover once visiting Porto, most sights are...

We had a wonderful stay in the Cale Guest House. Centrally located, also on walking distance of bus, metro and train. We had a tasteful, clean and spacious room on the top floor (just a little bit noisy because of traffic and partying people on the streets (carnaval?), so check if there is a room on the back side available)....
