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!

Fantastic location

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was true to the photos and is nicely decorated with plenty of room, good internet service, and big windows. I enjoyed my time there very much. The location is perfect for touring the Ribeira/tourist area of Porto and is convenient to the metro and local train station. Everything worked fine and was well maintained. Marc was very accommodating about schedule for check-in and check-out and the deposit was fully returned at checkout.

If you are only there for a few days, it is a great place. But if you plan to stay longer (I was there nine nights) and want to cook, the kitchen is small but serviceable, with only two small paring knives and one bread knife, minimal selection of glasses with no real wine glasses (tiny sort-of stemmed glasses, all the same size), and a large and very nice Bosch refrigerator, but with no freezer (no ice).

For a longer stay, be aware that amenities are only provided to "get you through the first few days" since it is not a hotel. This is fine, but be prepared. There is no soap, shampoo, or conditioner in the showers ( a runny liquid soap is at the bathroom sink), no extra trash bags, only 2 dishwashing tablets (Marc did kindly provide extras for me when I requested them). Bring your own and you will be fine.

There are many wonderful restaurants within five minutes walk of the apartment, plenty of shopping, and easy access to all the major tourist attractions. Don't bring a car since there is no parking and on-street parking is really, really hard and expensive. Also, there is only one set of keys for the apartment, so if you are with a group that wants to do different things, you will need to coordinate among yourselves.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. We provide a full service ( including cleaning, shampoo, soap, ... for longer stays as often as you wish). This service is optional and you have chosen not to have this service! Concerning the set of keys, we provide as many set of keys as you wish, this is probably a misunderstanding!

Beautiful flat, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2 teen boys and I stayed in this lovely flat while exploring the historic centre of Porto. The flat is walking distance to all restaurants and sites, and very close to the metro. It is clean, tastefully decorated, very roomy, comfortable and equipped with everything one would need during their stay.

Both Marc and Nancy were reachable and accommodating. They answered all of our questions and recommended great restaurants and sites to see. I highly recommend this flat to everyone without hesitation.

Thank you Marc and Nancy for your hospitality!

Kind regards,

Maria
