2023 Travellers' Choice Best of the Best
The Dukes Corner Guest House is located in an emblematic building from the beginning of the 20th century (1908) which was renovated maintaining its original architectural traces. Ideally situated in an old and noble residence, surrounded by trees and calm, it is just a 10 minutes' walk to the Oporto city centre and 5 minutes' to the nearest Metro Station. In the city centre it is possible to visit many touristic sites, such as "Torre dos Clérigos", "Palácio da Bolsa", "Sé Catedral", the Town Hall, S. Bento Station, the Churches of "Misericórdia", "Carmo" and "Carmelitas" as well as the Rectory of the University. Still within the perimeter of the city centre, the walking route through the "Rua das Flores" is a "must see" leading the visitors to one of the oldest parts of the city, with particular emphasis to the "Ribeira" area along the Douro River. In the Dukes Corner we are very proud to offer a warm welcome to indulge our guests' wishes and be certain that they will come back again. There are 7 bedrooms available (one of them is a Suite) individually furnished and distinctive in style and adapted to the modern demands of comfort. All rooms have en-suite bathroom with free WIFI access, Cable TV and Air Conditioning. Our guests can still benefit from our breakfast room, a lounge where they can rest, read or socialize and still relax in our heartwarming outside area while feasting with our diverse and delicious menu accompanied by an excellent wine. We look forward to seeing you.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a surprise! After many years of both short and long stays in Portugal, and staying in a variety of different types of places – everything from rented apartments to five-star hotels – my expectations were perhaps not too high when I booked Dukes Corner Guesthouse for an extended stay. But oh how wrong you could be... Dukes Corner is the best place I've stayed in Portugal in all the more than thirty years I've visited the country! A somewhat anonymous and unassuming building, with a beautiful exterior for sure, which may not impress in the purely technical details. But in all the other details – from the reception on the first day to the departure on the last day – there was one thing that impressed me the most. And it was that in every given event, it was always the guest's best interest that guided the actions. Everything was done to make your stay as comfortable and carefree as possible. And always with a smile and a good mood that warms the heart. Through their actions, the staff makes you and all other guests feel comfortable, have fun and feel good. And all the staff, not least Fatima, become almost like family members in your own house. The staff and level of service at Dukes Corner beats any five star hotel I have visited around the world. With a shorter description: Simply the best….

Myself and a friend stayed at Dukes for 5 nights 14th -19th October and had a great stay, We stayed in a twin room with balcony and garden view. Great location to the city. We found the beds and linen so comfortable and great pressure to the shower, the room cleaned to a high standard daily, and the Breakfast room was really cosy with a great variety to choose from. Finally the staff they went above and beyond to help in any way and were very friendly throughout our stay, Would stay again in a Heartbeat and would recommend to anyone visiting Porto Thanks to all at Dukes Sandra & Cynthia

We stayed in the room with an enclosed patio and private garden terrace. It was the perfect place during our stay. Fatima and the rest of our hosts were most accommodating and one of the best part of this place. The breakfast dining room and selection of food to choose from was delicious. Delicious pastries, breads, sliced deli meat, different cheeses, fruit and fresh squeezed orange juice. A perfect stopover in Porto during our visit to Portugal. Close to everything you could ever want when visiting this amazing city.

Excellent position in a quiet neighboughood. Everyting in the house was tidy and clean. The breakfast includes good coffee and quite a selection of healthy and local food. The staff was very friendly and helped me out with briging their own tips for trips around the city. Also the internet connection was pretty fast. I can quite recommend for both business and vacation.

A great long weekend visiting Porto and staying at Dukes Corner Guest House, a lovely quirky guest house, we were made to feel at home straight away thanks to the wonderful Fatima. Once checked in Fatima produced a map showing us the quickest routes to the sights which proved a great help during our stay. The walk into the old town is easy enough with the river Douro coming into view, but a bit hilly coming back though. We just about saw all we wanted over the weekend, although there is always room for one more church or glass of port! The Guest House was very comfortable with a fine breakfast to start the day, lovely rolls and fresh pastries. We had an early start on our last day, but Fatima came in early to cook us scrambled eggs and pancakes, nothing was too much trouble, This typifies Fatima and the staff, always going above and beyond. Thank you Porto, and thank you Fatima, you made our holiday!!

We really had a very good time. Personnel was very kind and we had a very good customer experience. Rooms were perfectly made every day (thanks Fatima and the rest of the team). We even felt a bit ashamed of leaving the room untidy before leaving every morning. Distance from city centre is OK on foot with children (>8yo) and the room was OK for big families (we were 5 and we all fitted perfect). The house reminds me old Brasileira family houses. Very charming. I strongly recommend the place ☺️

Dear Fatima & team, We would all like to thank you for making us feel so welcome whilst staying at your gorgeous guest house. It really is stunning, in a fabulous location. And breakfast was brilliant. We were a group of 8 so took up 4 rooms. All different in size & style but each unique in their own way. The beds were so comfy & each room was beautiful. Fatima had loads of of local knowledge from directions, restaurants and even booking a local Fado show for us. Each & every one of you were so friendly and we will hopefully be back. Thank you!

Everything about our experience at Dukes Corner Guest House was perfect. What really made it was Fatima who was very friendly and helpful with any questions. Fatima welcomed us on arrival and insisted on carrying my heavy suitcase up the stairs to our room. Teabags and milk were supplied on request. The room was a good size and kept lovely and clean each day. There is a short walk to the metro station but it is also close enough to walk to the tourist areas in Porto. Fresh coffee and orange juice was available at breakfast as well as pastel de Natas. I highly recommended a visit here. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Fatima for making our stay so enjoyable.

We were looked after very well by Fatima and the team at Dukes Corner. Our bedroom was spotless. There was plenty of choice at breakfast and the fresh orange juice was delicious. The guest house is in an excellent location for walking, metro and train stations. The local cafes were very reasonable and a good choice of restaurants and bars too. Thank you for our anniversary treats Fatima and opening the breakfast room early on our last day.

Received a warm & friendly welcome from Fatima. Throughout our week the attention and help received from all the team was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Fatima gave us a map & highlighted areas of interest & talked about certain things regarding their history. Breakfast was a good variety of foods to suit all tastes and a time to find out about the local area. Our room was clean & comfortable. We will remember our stay as being the place where we felt immediately at home. Porto was interesting & we really enjoyed our visit, but what stands out in our memory and we will always remember is the excellent way we were treated by Fatima and her team at Dukes Corner. They are worth their weight in gold with the way they engaged with & helped all their guests. We would have no hesitation in recommending Dukes Corner to our friends as an excellent place to stay in Porto.
