Location, Location, Location! View, view, view!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was wonderful with an awesome terrace to enjoy your wine or lunch with a terrific view! Prime location right near the river and the stock exchange; spacious, plenty of closet space and drawers. Our only issue was the shower upstairs could be improved but that can be overlooked with all the other amenities this apartment has to offer. Would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family! Thanks, Marc

Stunning appartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this spacious and clean apartment. The location of the apartment couldn't be better. It is right in the centre of the old, picturesque part of town and within two minutes walk of the river. Marc and Katya were also very friendly and helpful.

Thank you x

Great apartment! Great views!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in an ideal location with plenty of space and nicely furnished. Historic sights and restaurants are within a few steps from the front door. We'd reserve this place again when we come back to Porto!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean and comfortable and wonderfully situated for sightseeing.

It was a short walk for groceries and there are many restaurants to choose from.

Would definitely return.

Beautiful view of the river from the master bedroom. Pull up a chair and have a glass of wine

  • 3 of 5

Close to everything, the apartment is nice and comfy with great views of the city. The master bedroom upstairs is great and quite at nite with a great view of the river and the bridges and has air conditioning, the second bedroom on the street side downstairs is loud so you have to close the windows to sleep but then it gets to warm so you can't be a light sleeper.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments. Just to clarify the situation of the second bedroom, in fact it is located on the street side ( almost no car circulation during the night), and you are on the 5th floor! It is usually very quite but in fact during your stay there was a typical festival (which is one to 2 times per year mainly during summer) in the city center making slightly more noise than usual. Please do not forget you are in the very heart of the historical city! In any case we will install a air conditioning in the downstairs bedroom so this potential issue will definitely be closed.
