A great location - some improvements warranted
As all of the reviews note, the apt is in a terrific location in Porto. Only the upper bedroom with its terrace has lovely views of the Dom Luis I bridge and the River Douro. The balance of the views from the apt are of the Infante Dom Henrique Park.
The listing notes air conditioning, however, it is limited to the two bedrooms. The Living room, dining room and kitchen are not air conditioned and while the large windows open to the street and park, we found that flies and mosquitoes came into the apt when these windows were open.
Kitchen was modestly equipped but adequate.
Like many apt rentals, some of the furniture is too large for the space. This was true for the dining room table (little room to pull back a chair) and the bed in the upper bedroom. The bed faces the windowed terrace and there is a steel post beam that leaves only about 12" to get by to move around the bed from the closets. Upper bathroom had enough shelf space for two toiletry bags. Good water pressure.
For more elderly tenants or those with heavy suitcases, note that there is a long staircase from the ground level to the elevator, that could present a challenge.
Thanks for the comments. In fact as you describe it is the best location in Porto! Close to everything and unique views!
We will take into consideration some comments in order to improve even more the experience of our customers in my apartment.
Elegant apartment on two levels
We stayed here before in 2015. We booked the apartment again because we liked it so much. From the 5th floor, you can look out at the Jardin, and all the tour buses coming and going. From the 6th floor Master Suite you can sit on the balcony with a view of the River. Terrific!
Thanks and to see you again soon
We stayed at this property for 3 nights with our daughter and her friend. The apartment was great; very large and well appointed with an absolutely great location a short walk to Riberia and the river.
Would highly recommend.
Well located property in beautiful Porto
The apartment is in a very central part of Porto close to the river and many restaurants. While the river front restaurants have a great outlook we found that the better food was up the hill. Was very pleasant to have an evening pre dinner drink sitting up on the balcony overlooking the river. Parking at the Saba car park opposite is very convenient but expensive - cost us 84 euros for 2.5 days!
Wonderful space and location!
We stayed here for the first 3 nights of our honeymoon. This wonderful 2-level apartment is so well located in Porto. It's located in a fantastic area very close to the river with great views and is an easy walk to the river, bridge and Villa de Nova Gaia as well as into the heart of Porto. We walked everywhere in the city and loved every minute of it.
The apartment is nicely decorated, clean and very comfortable and we received quick responses from the owner when communicating with him in advance of our stay and when we had a few questions.
The person who met us to let us in the apartment helped carry our luggage up the steps to the elevator and showed us where everything was. He even gave a few restaurant recommendations.
Our stay was perfect and I definitely recommend staying here...but stay for at least 4 nights if you're taking a day in the Douro Valley (which you should) so you really have time to explore everything!
Location can't be better!
We were all over Porto, and this apartment has to be the best location. Close to everything. Right on the square with 3 or 4 historical sights and around the corner from the main riverfront area. Large apartment. Good size for my wife and daughter. Views from 2 sides (4 balconies) were incredible! The entire process with Marc was great.
Hope to see you again soon
You are located in the historical center of the city of Oporto, near the Ribeira Area, with fantastic view of the River Douro, Dom Luis Brigde and the whole city historical center of Oporto. You are nearby the Palacio da Bolsa, the Sao Francisco Church and in front you have the Infante Dom Henrique Square.
