Quaint place in Porto
Very nice hosts in an older classic building... more of a B&B feel with a private bathroom. Hosts were super helpful. Note that the area not prime, however, walkable to all major attractions in Porto. Keep in mind that taxis are cheap and easy to catch if a stroll is not in your plans.

Ouahbi, us3 night family trip
Álvares Cabral Guest House, Porto
2 nights for a family of 4
Positives: The hosts were really, really nice and friendly. The property and room had a comfortable ambiance, and the beds were soft. The rooms were large, and there were separate twin beds for our 2 kids. The bathroom had a vent. Parking was convenient with spaces across the street that were free for a few hours during the night and also a garage a short distance down the street with a reasonable rate. Negatives: The bathroom had a lot of areas of mold/mildew around the toilet, including the lid, and also around the shower. In general, the entire bathroom needed a deep cleaning and makeover. It was also very cold in the room without central heat, only a portable radiator. There were no elevators for 3 flights of stairs so I would not recommend this hotel for anyone with trouble walking or who get short of breath easily.
