Centrally located & beautiful apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was amazing in a great location. Come prepared you need a €200 damage deposit, I wasn't aware but I am certain it must have outlined somewhere. Be sure to grab toilet paper there was very little and no back up. Showers drain very slowly most likely because it's a heritage building.Biggest criticism linens and towels could have been fresher, they were a bit musky. With all that said would stay here again tomorrow.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments! We will try to improve next time! Better and easier would be to contact me and we would certainly explain where to find ( in the case of toilet paper... there was back up) and exchange if needed ( in the case of the linens and towels). Please be sure that we make everything you can feel you are at home or better!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Apartment is very well situated, and easy to get around to sites, restaurants, shopping etc. The pictures are very representative of the apartment. The kitchen is quite small...a hallway really, and so can be difficult if more than one person is trying to do something there. There is little storage space for kitchen items that you may bring in with you, or for non refrigerated groceries. It is a very comfortable space overall, and the owner was very responsive when we had a small issue at check in. Porto is tough with a car, which we had, so just plan to be prepared for that.

Location location location; Great location to visit Porto

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this recently renovated building in this historic building situated in the historic part of Porto (the Ribeira)_.Everything is at walking distance including crossing the Dom Luis bridge to Vila Nova de Gaia (Porto caves)

Marc is very reliable, He is quick to return emails and gives good information. Everything went according to planned concerning check in and check out (safety deposit in cash returned at check out). He showed us the apartment and explained how the apartment was refurbished.

The apartment has two full very modern and clean bathrooms. One is joined to the big master bedroom, and the other is in the hallway which serves the two other bedrooms. These bedrooms are less private because one is on a mezzanine and the other has a window opening on the hallway. This window has shutters for more privacy but you will have less natural light. This layout worked perfectly for us since we were a family travelling with our kids.

Past reviews complained about the lack of towels and dishes.

• As for the towels: 1 set of towels per person is the standard(we stayed in other apartments elsewhere in Portugal and it is all the same)

• As for the dishes, we were 6 and had 1set of dishes each!

However we did eat in very often so this did not bother us. Which reminds me there is a great pastry shop just down stairs which is great for coffee and morning pastries. I must add that we had the misadventure to leave our pastries on the kitchen counter which made a lot of small ants come out. Since this is an old building, I guess it would be best to leave all food in the fridge!!

All in all, I would highly recommend this apartment !! ;-)

Beautiful Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment blends modern amenities with a classic building in a great location. The elevator is a rare treat, most appreciated when lugging bags for six adults upstairs at check in and check out time. Water pressure in the showers was unexpectedly strong for an older building. The addition of the loft bedroom above an enclosed modern bath takes nothing away from the classic beauty and spaciousness of the main living area, which is bright and comfortable. We were short a few pieces of linen on the first day, but the owner was quick to respond and we were taken care of right away. The young woman we interacted with was kind and friendly. The location is great: just a few minutes walk to the train station, port tastings, and waterfront restaurants. We would be glad to stay here again if we return to Porto!
