Stayed here for two nights in September 2015 and chose it for the location more than anything else. The hotel is very small and the room we had was like a top bunk double. Perhaps not ideal for some, but for our short stay it was fine. Excellent view over the river and the staff, especially Andrea were really helpful... More

This hotel is fine if you are on a short trip. It's small but friendly. The location is excellent and the breakfast plentiful. I was in room 2 which is street side and can hear what's going on in the street. There is only provision to hang a couple of things. There are no drawers to unpack into

This is the smallest place in width I have ever stayed,about seven feet wide. Small reception and small breakfast room. Not a vast breakfast choice but more than enough choice for a few days. Had a twin room that was very clean as was the en-suite bathroom. Good sized shower. As I was not sharing room was fine but a... More

The Homey has an ideal location near the river and just off Praca Ribeira. Rooms are small and well-appointed with quirky details. Staff are welcoming and efficient with freshly cooked breakfasts on offer. There is very little storage space for clothes or belongings in the rooms, making stays of more than one or two nights a little frustrating.

The property is superbly located for almost everything: the facilities and amenities are modern, décor is smart, staff are excellent, and breakfast is exceptional. But plan your stay. Firstly, if arriving by car ignore the GPS and go directly to the recommended car-park. The way to Rua Fonte Taurina is actually non-navigable because of restaurant tables and pedestrian traffic, and... More

We got so lucky finding this place. It is in the most absolute perfect place in Porto. They gave us the top floor room with the river view and it was breathtaking. It had a little, tiny balcony that we put these two chairs and had wine and people watched. They don't have have a lift but they do have... More

Pros: very stylish, helpful manager, great breakfast. Location, good wifi. Cons: no lift, noise coming from the various restaurants surrounding it and seagull calls can make for sleepless nights. It definitely needs to sort out its soundproofing.

I have mixed feelings about this guest house which is why I have rated it as average. Pros... Location is fantastic. You're right on the river in Riberia, surrounded by great restaurants, a short walk to the hop on hop off bus stop, close to parking (although much cheaper on the Gaia side of the river), the staff are pleasant...

We arrived in Porto quite frazzled after a long day. Andreia was great. She greeted us warmly and offered us help in settling in. We loved the decoration of the guesthouse, and its position. It was just moments from the departure point of cruises and the hop on hop off buses. There was also a multitude of eating possibilities just... More

My husband and I spent our one-year anniversary at the Homey Guest House. It was a great buy! After the misunderstanding with the room, it turned out really well. Very helpful staff and right on the river for beautiful views. Just make sure to have your window shut at night from the noise of the people below. Besides that, loved... More
