Lovely, better than the photos display

  • 5 of 5

The flat was very comfortable with tons of natural light. The windows also included a black out feature to allow heat and sleep control. The location is fantastical located to a small grocery, all the city center amenities, and shopping. Nancy was fantastic with the check in and check out process, very smooth.

Superbe appartement

  • 4 of 5

Cet appartement récent offre tout le confort souhaité pour un séjour réussi! La clim dans le séjour et dans les chambres, les puits de lumière qui offrent un éclairage naturel dans toutes les pièces, l'ascenseur qui fonctionne très bien et le joli balcon ou prendre un verre de vin portugais! Enfin, la vue sur les toits de la ville est magnifique!

Il faut savoir qu'il n'y a pas de produits ni de linges pour le nettoyage, peu de serviettes et aucun produit de base, à l'exception de sachets de sucre et de sel. Cela nous a un peu étonnés, car un peu partout on trouve au moins une bouteille d'eau fraîche à l'arrivée... On peut toutefois se procurer le nécessaire à proximité. Les lits sont confortables. Celui de la seconde chambre est moins grand que celui de la chambre principale qui est "king size'.

Cet appartement est bien situé, près de Ribeira et de la rua Florès, une jolie rue piétonne.

Enfin, de la chambre principale, nous avons souvent entendu ce bruit ressemblant à la vibration d'un mobile, dont parle Helette C. dans son commentaire.

Un endroit idéal pour passer quelques jours à Porto!

Beautiful flat, views, but a few notes

  • 4 of 5

We (a young couple) had a lovely stay at this flat. The photos are 100% accurate and the apartment has been very well taken care of. Aside from being a gorgeous property, the property is IDEALLY located, within walking distance of major attractions and convenient proximity to 1) grocery 2) banks 3) incredible restaurants and eateries. It's also very quiet and well-equipped. Claudia who helped us check-in was a delight - very accommodating with lots of suggestions. I would highly recommend this unit for your upcoming trip to Porto.

There are only a few items to note:

The main bedroom mattress is not comfortable (soft, spongy)

We were awoken and disturbed each night by an unexplained noise which continued intermittently and sounded like a mobile phone vibrating (I imagine this was a one-off experience, but am including this in case other renters experienced this as well)

The bathrooms hold a damp smell

Quartier parfait central et au milieu de tout Grand appartement agréable

  • 3 of 5

chambre double petite et sombre peu chaleureuse

Tout est presque parfait, il suffirait pourtant de quelques petits plus qui feraient toute la différence

Pas d'endroit pour pendre sa. Serviette de toilette pour qu'elle sèche et nous n'étions que 2!

Pas de linge de toilette suffisant

Pas d'oreiller supplémentaire ou couverture, peu de vaisselle , pas de verres agréables pour boire du vin, peu de plats, le 2ème lit pas fait et draps non disponibles, et si on a envie de faire chambre à part? Et si l'un est malade? Pourquoi louer un grand appartement si tout n'est pas disponible?

Rien a notre arrivée, si, un sachet de tisane pour 2... Les autres propriétaires ont toujours un petit cadeau de bienvenue symbolique ce qui est agréable

Pour résumer les petits plus de confort n'y sont pas, un peu radin peut être le propriétaire?.....

Owner's Response: Merci pour vos commentaires et nous tiendrons compte des conseils pour les prochaines locations. Il est à noter que certains points sont clairement expliqués dans l'annonce de location comme le linge de toilette ( un set par personne est fourni, si le client souhaite d'autres sets ces derniers pourront être fournis en payant un supplément - non inclus dans le prix de la location).

Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment! The location is excellent and is an easy walk to most of the great sites in Porto. The apartment was clean and spacious and the view is phenomenal. The second bedroom is definitely a bit small as others have indicated, but still very usable. The only drawback we experienced were the towels. We stay in apartment rentals everywhere we travel, so we understand they aren't hotels, but do expect more than one towel per person. We stayed for a week and just 1 towel per person was left (if you're a lady you usually need two!). We searched in the neighborhood for a laundromat and couldn't find one so we contacted the owner to request more towels. He gave us the location of a laundromat, but they were closed on the day we went there. This wasn't a huge deal, but if you're staying for longer than a weekend, be sure to request extra towels so you aren't wasting away precious holiday time searching for a place to wash the ones issued!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments. As described in the website, a set of towels is provided for your stay. A exchange of towels during your stay is possible anytime for our customers paying an extra charge. I believe this is a fair solution as we are renting an apartment and we are not a hotel. Best Regards
