Small charming town house in walking distance to galleries, restaurants and museums. The Rosa et al team were amazing and made me feel at home. The breakfast menu offers delicious home made food and has an extensive tea list. Their small garden offers a quite place to enjoy the sun almost all day. During the cooking workshops with the owner...

My friends and I recently stayed at Rosa Et Al for a recent trip to Porto. The Rosa Et Al team were amazing even prior to our arrival. They responded to our emails quickly, provided great insight into places of interest, and booked all of our requests. The hotel is perfectly located in the center of the city, walking distance...

We loved this townhouse, and if it wasn't for a few quirks, we would give it top rating. We hope to be able to do that after our next visit, for we will come back! First all the good stuff: The rooms are spacious and welcoming and with great, laid back design. We love it! The radio was set to...

We had a stay of 2 nights at Rosa et al Townhouse. A truly romantic and classy spot in the arty part of Porto. Very clean, very unique, very bohemian. Service always friendly and helpful. Gorgeous breakfast. Unfortunately there was some construction work in the neighbour's house all the time, starting at 9am and continuing till the afternoon. The noise...

Special guesthouse with a mixture of vintage and modern decoration. Great location, closed to the city center. Very kind hospitality. I specially enjoyed the bathroom with the huge bathtub. High quality breakfast and selection of different teas.

We expected a great experience and service with this type of room, it was not the case. You have no services and it is far away from the guesthouse which looks nice. The loft location is not friendly and very noisy, we had better experience in some Airbnb. In general, the service and the welcome have to be improved.

We stayed at Rosa et al for 3 nights, and cannot praise it highly enough as a place to stay in Porto. Amazing hospitality from all the staff, who made us truly welcome. The design ethos of the hotel is a real benefit, but it is the people who make the place. The brunch was delicious, particularly the scrambled eggs,...

Typical of Porto, another hidden gem behind a deceptively simple facade. We were intrigued by this elegant re-purposed guest house and decided to visit for brunch. We stepped into a serene oasis for brunch and were delighted by the sophisticated menu, the lovely setting and warm service. Beyond that, what struck me in particular was the painstaking attention to detail...

A perfect place to stay in Porto. A good location, within easy walking distance of the main sights. Plus if you come by car, the hotel has an arrangement for off street parking very close to the hotel. The hotel itself is charming: it's a large Porto house on a small street that has been beautifully converted into separate suites...
