Superlatives only, you can expect the best qualityPosted Jun 29, 2014
Pros: Brightness and spaciousness of the apartment; breakfast in the room, Michelin-star chef Pedro Lemos (dinner at his restaurant is well-worth it!)
Cons: If me saying "nothing at all" make you suspicious read on; if not - skip this line as I forced it! Larger bathrobes for not-so-skinny-people haha
Location: *Pedro Lemos*! 5min to the beach, lovely neighbourhood away from any noise at all! an inexpensive ride (in an antique tram!) away from the city-centre
We've never been to Porto and used Expedia to research places to stay (as usual). We couldn't make a decision so chose to stay at a couple of places during one short visit to see where we would want to go back to in the future since a weekend stay wouldn't give us enough time for exploring the area anyway. Our major thoughts and comments after a night in 4Rooms ("Skyloft"): We will never stay anywhere else rather than there when we decide to come to Porto again and neither will we allow any of our friends or family go to Porto without staying there! We were left speechless from the time of personalised email after making a booking, warm welcome (allow the check-in process to surprise you), the first sight of our "room" which in reality was a self-contained ground-floor apartment with a skylight (window) i.e. not a loft! Higher quality than vast majority of 5-star hotels and you can easily see designer touches to it. "What time is our breakfast?" we asked. "What time do you want it to be?" was the answer :) Can it get any better? Yes it can, but to not to ruin anyone's unique experience - pamper yourself but beware - staying there dangerously raises the bar of standards for every place you will be staying in from then on!

Excellent Staff and Lovely AccommodationsPosted Apr 12, 2014
Pros: I loved the attentive staff and personal service. This was a chic and romantic hotel, yet it was comfortable for my daughter too.
Location: A large mini-golf near the water, pedestrian walk near the Atlantic, small restaurants, chic shopping.
For our family (2 adults and a child), walking along the Atlantic coast (just a 5-minute walk from the hotel) in the evening after a day touring in Porto was perfect. Transportation into Porto was never a problem, for we had a choice of the trolley (stops nearby beginning at 9:30 a.m.), the local bus #500 (every 15 minutes), the hop-on-hop-off system, and taxi (7-8 euro into town). 4Rooms is located in a quiet, quaint neighborhood in the Foz do Douro district. The hotel staff is attentive, knowledgable, and accommodating. Before we arrived, we received an email from the staff anticipating and confirming our arrival and offering any assistance in planning. The exterior of the hotel is inconspicuous having no indication it is a hotel as it blends into the neighborhood; upon entering it feels lovely, warm, and chic. Our room, the sky loft, was large and immaculate with comfortable linens and towels, and it was across the tiny street from the main part of the hotel. It includes a small kitchenette which is invaluable if traveling with children (Foz restaurants open at 8 p.m. for dinner). Breakfast--substantial and lovely--was a time where we could ask our hostess questions about travel; 4Rooms even reserved a free Port wine tour for us. Overall, the staff was excellent, the room exceptionally well cared for, and the Foz District a terrific area to unwind. For couples without children, it would be a very romantic stop.

Perfect choice for our stay in Porto!Posted Feb 23, 2014
Pros: Staying at the 4Rooms was like being welcomed into the home of a good friend. We were made to feel like special guests. Breakfast was great!
Cons: Nothing! Everything was perfect.
Location: Short ride into city, very close to the ocean, great restaurants within walking distance.
4Rooms is a great representation of the city of Porto - warm and welcoming! We were originally concerned about choosing 4Rooms because it is outside of the city center. Our concerns were quickly eased by the short walk to transportation and the joy of taking the two block walk to the ocean before breakfast each morning. It was also a pleasure to return from a busy day of touring to a clean, cozy and very comfortable room. Catarina and Fabiana attended to all of our needs, answered all of our questions, gave great information and directions and made excellent recommendations for dinner. We can recommend 4Rooms without hesitation!

Nice changePosted Jan 19, 2014 on Hotels.com
If you want a change from your regular hotel stays then this is the place to stay. Great interior. Fantastic attention to detail. A little small but if you like the attention then this is definitely the place to stay.

Wonderful little hotelPosted Nov 2, 2013
Beautiful intimate hotel, well located on a quiet street in Foz. Close to great restaurants and easy walk to transportation and attractions. Service was warm and friendly, responsive but quietly in the background. Overall a great experience.

FabulousPosted Mar 26, 2012
Pros: staff, location, cool rooms.
Location: excellently placed for a relaxing stay.
Great attention to detail and lovely staff made this a very, very pleasant place to stay. It's a great location too - an interesting bus or tram ride away from the town and in Foz, a lovely little suburb by the sea.

personal service in a stylish settingPosted Oct 25, 2011
If you like modern designer architecture in a small guest house this is a great place to stay in Porto. Pretty much 1 to 1 service and they offer to book you table, book and pay ahead for your bike tour, wine tour etc and genuinely no payback. They even put candles and chilled bubbly in the room when i emailed ahead to say it was our anniversary and could they organise some champers. Really memorable trip and an interesting part of town with good local restaurants and amenities with easy ride into historic centre of PORTO. Bravo, real customer service.
