Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this delightful apartment. It is perfectly situated, within walking distance of all the main districts in the city center. It is directly over the road from the Bolhao market which is great for fresh fruit, vegetables, seafood, meat, nata(custard tarts) and wine, There are several supermarkets and traditional bakery/grocery stores nearby for anything else you might need. There are numerous cheap restaurants serving basic wholesome Portugese food in the area and if you want to go fine dining there is that as well. If all else fails or you've misjudged the opening and closing time of restaurants the Leitao(suckling pig) shop under the apartment is always open and the Leitao sandes are pretty good.

The apartment itself is newly renovated and well stocked with all the appliances necessary for a short or in our case longer stay. We dealt mostly with the owners daughter Lidia who was very nice and always asked if we needed anything. We didn't annoy her too much and she didn't annoy us which is how we like it. There is a bus stop on the road outside but the double glazing kept the noise down to a minimum. There is a metro 50 meters away with direct connections to the airport, train station and Casa da Musica bus station.

Porto is a beautiful, vibrant, safe and friendly city and we can highly recommend Joao's apartment

Well equiped apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this well equipped apartment which contained everything we needed for our stay. It is in a great location right near Bolhao metro station and is within walking distance of most of the city's attractions. Communication with the owner was always timely and checking in was a breeze with Lidia showing us around. I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone staying in Porto.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this well-appointed and immaculately clean apartment April 6-11. João's daughter, Lidia, met us upon arrival, thoughtfully showed us how to work the washer, dryer and dishwasher (not always as obvious as one might think) and pointed out where everything was, including tourist info on Porto and the area. She welcomed us with a lovely bottle of port. The flat is bright and fresh, with big windows and hardwood floors. When the windows are closed, there is almost no sound from the street. The kitchen is well-equipped --even has an oven. Top notch bathroom, too. The bedroom is separated from the living area by wall dividers on two sides. The division works well to maintain the spaciousness of the whole room yet allow for a more private sleeping area. The bed has a firm and comfortable mattress, as does the sofa bed. We slept well. The location couldn't be better. Seconds from Bolhão metro, 6 min walk from the city bus to the airport, so much to see all around. This flat was luxurious for two people, and it would also suit a family of four comfortably. I highly recommend this flat.

Wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect! The use of the space within the apartment was extremely functional and the kitchen was well equipped. The location is wonderful, we especially enjoyed being so near the market and some wonderful restaurants. We walked all over the city from the apartment. We highly recommend this location.

Lovely Modern Apartment located outside the tourist areas.

  • 5 of 5

Very nice clean modern apartment with bottle of port! All facilities including coffee making, washer, dryer. Good loafing area.

Good location only a few minutes walk from the centre of Porto including the Estação de São Bento, Lello & Irmão bookshop and the other main tourist attractions. The port lodges are a must although Taylors is a fairly tough walk but well worth the effort. Across the road from the Market and the subway giving direct access to the Airport and Porto - Campanha station with trains to Lisbon.

The local cafés are plentyful and good value. Although you could make coffee in the apartment with 60cents for a coffee hardly worth the effort. The Pastries are good and plentiful and make a pleasant breakfast.

We found a good restaurant on our first night, just round the corner 'Restaurante Abadia do Porto' the service was impeckable and the place filled up quickly with couples and groups.

We would recommend this apartment and would like to return.
