Central location with good all round amenities. Our studio flat offered a nice balcony for breakfast and evening drinks, was clean and well equipped. Alvaro, the owner, and Ana, the housekeeper, were very helpful with arranging parking as well as providing suggestions for places to visit and eat.

Room tip: For the best view and quietness choose the Douro studio flat

We stayed three nights at Casa dos Guindais in Porto during New Year's 2019/20 and highly recommend it. The location is fantastic, a few minutes walk from the bridge to Gaia and close to great local pastelarias, restaurants, and other attractions. Álvaro was very nice and allowed us to cancel the last night we had booked, as I had to be back in Lisbon for a business meeting. The house and the rooms are stunning, a wonderful mix of old stone masonry and modern decoration. The courtesy port wine upon arrival is a great welcome, and Ana provided all the information we could need about where to go for great food, drinks, and to discover the city. Beds were very comfortable, the room was sparkling clean, all amenities were provided, and we had a fantastic view of Gaia from our balcony (Douro room). We were in Portugal for two weeks and visited 5 different cities - Casa dos Guindais was by far the best accommodation we booked.

Room tip: The Douro room has a fantastic balcony with great view of Vila nova de Gaia, across the Douro River.

Excellent location for wine tasting across the river and going to town. A very nice cafe for breakfast just 1 min up the street. The place was very clean and efficient, and host very gracious and helpful. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed in the Douro room which has a view of the monastery and on the garden side. It was very quiet at night and the shutters keep all the light out when you sleep. It was well located for getting across the river as well as into the centre of Porto. Although we didn't cook, it looked like there were good facilities if we wanted to.
Alvaro was very good at communicating with us beforehand to arrange check in times and getting to the house.

Room tip: We really liked our stay in Douro room. Quiet, nice view and has a balcony to sit outside

Thank you for your post.
Great to know it all went well for you. We are a self catering facility.. I’m guessing you didn’t realize there was no breakfast service... but .. as you say , there a few good places as short as 150 meters from our house .
All the best
Kind regards
