Wonderful flat in Old Porto

  • 5 of 5

We had a difficult time finding the flat, but Sofia was wonderful in helping us and staying with us until we were settled. Ask for directions before coming. Do not rely on GPS or you might find yourself stuck on one way, one track hilly roads;) Once we were settled the flat was perfect for 5 people. It is well located for exploring the city and very comfortable. We felt at home during our stay. Wonderful host. Fabulous Flat. Thank you! We can't wait to return!

Perfect location. Clean & right in the heart of Porto

  • 5 of 5

Sophia met us at the apartment and showed us around. She took care to review map of Porto showing us locations of grocery stores, favorite restaurants and must see sights. She reviewed rules of the house and some idiosyncrasies to make us feel at home. It was a wonderful place for us —- 3 bedrooms & 2 baths — perfect for 3 women traveling together. The location was perfect We walked everywhere. The kitchen was very well appointed and she even had some ruby port there as a welcome. We all agreed we’d go back in a heartbeat.

modern apartment in old town area, near to main features

  • 3 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay here, the owner was most helpful with very useful ideas and tips to experience Porto, it's sights and restaurants. She was also responsive when domestic issues needed attention. Beds were comfortable and the area fairly quiet except for Saturday night.

The terrace that appears attractive in the promo might be that in mid Summer but is situated at ground level with 3 levels of building on all sides. So it was cold, dark and damp with no sun at all by early October, despite Porto still being quite warm. We didn't use the area all week despite temperatures in the mid 20s (C).

The apartment had a few annoying features that the owner should address, some due to poor build /workmanship and others, design, that you'd not expect in this price bracket.

We could not lock either bathroom/toilet door, they tended to slide open so we ended up resorting to wedges for privacy.

Lighting in the kitchen / meals area is very restricted. There is no lighting along one main wall and the opposite wall only has down lights making any kitchen activity difficult. Better lighting should be installed.

The only window in this area opens out directly on the street so passers-by tend to look straight in if opened for ventilation. This window is shuttered but these are broken and difficult to close, as one must do for security.

None of these is insurmountable so hopefully fixing will make this an even more enjoyable place to stay.

Best house to rent in Porto !!!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons trouvé la maison idéale à Porto pour notre séjour… Emplacement idéal, tout est à proximité !!! Propreté A-1, Literie très douillet, décoré avec goût et simplicité. Cour intérieur offrant un cachet impressionnant, c’est un coup de cœur ! La grande fenêtre de cuisine qui donne sur la rue, a un petit quelque chose de typique et amusant !!

Accueil très chaleureux de Sofia… Elle est super gentille et un brin timide… avec de très bons conseils

Merci pour ce séjour mémorable !

We Have found the perfect home in Porto for our stay ... perfect location, everything is nearby!!! Cleanliness A-1, very cozy bedding, decorated with taste and simplicity. One of the many highlights: The Inside court!!! The large kitchen window who faces the street is so typical and fun!!

Very warm welcome from Sofia ... She is super nice and a bit shy ... With great advices!!!

Thank you for this memorable stay!
