Very good apartment in ideal location

  • 4 of 5

For our first time in Porto it was great to stay somewhere with a lovely view over the river (from the bedroom) and within walking distance of sights. Weather was chilly so good to be able to have heating on. Apartment was comfortable and modern with plenty of storage. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated being able to check out later than normal due to late flight home.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. The two negatives were that there was no clothes washing machine and seagulls were noisy at night. We would return on our next visit. Fantastic view and great location.

Awesome apartment, well maintained, clean and in a great neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Porto and really loved the apartment amenities and location. The two restaurants across the street were excellent for dinner and drinks. Shopping is so close with great prices. Ana is so very nice and our transition into and out of Porto was seamless. Highly recommend this property.
