The photos show exactly how the unit looks and feels. Very often photos look like one thing , the accomodation another. Ditto for the breakfast and loft. These are accurate. . Ariana was great. On messages she gets back to you timeously, and as a person she is lovely and ready to help with advice , taxis and places to go. The location is quiet with some neighbourhood noise such as the occasional dog. Nights were very quiet. The bed was particularly great (Very important with back issues). It’s medium firm I would say and very comfy. Great location if you want to be near the river and away from the noise of the city (easy bus literally 50 meters walk which will take you right into the city or up the coast to the main beach).. lots of good restaurants nearby too. If I’m back in Porto (which is just beautiful) I would use again for sure.
10 days and 4 guest houses; Garden of Camellias by far our favorite; we learned of the Foz de Douro after sailing by it and decided to check it out when back in the city. Love this area, though definitely more pricey. Ariana was an excellent host, the guest house we stayed in was ultra modern within an old building but everything about it was first class, comfortable mattress and no street noise. We enjoyed being slightly removed from the madding crowds city center and having lovely walks by the ocean.I want it to be our best kept secret. Will definitely return here again. Thank you for such a pleasure able stay.
