Location is crucial when visiting a city like Porto and our flat couldn't be more central than this. Metro and Train stations at 200 meters.

Clerigos Tower, Lello Bookstore, Bolsa Palace and many other are all at less than 500m. Visit the wine cellars of Porto simply walking across D. Luís Bridge and get the chance to do a Douro Cruise.

A lovely spacious apartment.

  • 5 of 5

Perfect position. We could walk to everything. The apartment was lovely and it was pleasant to sit in the love seats with a glass of wine and watch the people walk by. Follow the recommendations from your hosts and you will have a magnificent time.

Perfect location in the heart of old Porto area for a 3 night stay.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed watching the busy pedestrianised street and listening to the music, from the little window seats. The appartment was perfect size for 2 people, clean, simple and felt very safe in a busy inner city area. One small criticism would be the state of crockery. The cups were very small for a cup of tea (guess for coffee really), and one had a chip out of it which had been glued back in! Overall though a lovely stay, the owner met us on arrival and was very helpful. Would definitely stay again.

Location... location... location..

  • 5 of 5

Our two week stay in Porto went exceptionally well, in large part due to our choice of Cristina's & John's Rua das Flores apartment. It had everything we needed to make this our home away from home while in Porto. The location cannot be beat. We arrived by bus and walked to the apartment where Cristina met us. A very personable hostess, she provided an overview of the apartment and a very informative overview of things we might do during our visit. Even closer than the bus terminal (a 12 minute walk) are the São Bento train and metro stations. We highly recommend this apartment.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is comfortable and in an excellent location on a lively street. Although the street entertainment continues until late closing the apartment windows keeps out excess noise at night. Getting around Porto was very easy with the Metro at the end of the road and the Douro a short walk in the other direction. Although cooking at the apartment wasn't worthwhile due to the need to buy all the basics there are plenty of good eating places. We particularly recommend Casa da Musica for dinner, an easy journey on the Metro, and the buffet lunch at Serralves, the Modern Art museum - a longer journey but worth it.

We enjoyed our stay in Porto

  • 4 of 5

We arrived the day after the city wide holiday of St John. The street was still in a festive mood late into the night. The location of the apartment was convenient to everything in the city. We walked everywhere. Our host, John and Christina couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. The apartment was clean and nicely furnished. It was fun sitting in the window seats watching a constant parade of people walking by.

The downside was the noise. When it was time for bed we closed the widows and shutters. This ended the noise and light but it made the apartment very warm. We found a small fan but it hardly made a difference. The bed was hard and that might have been alright had the pillows not been even harder. Neither of us got a good night sleep during our four night stay. Air conditioning, soft pillows or 2 larger fans that moved would have made a difference. We stilled enjoyed our stay because that's the chance you take when you don't go the hotel route.

great place in lively city

  • 5 of 5

we loved our 4 day holiday in Porto. the flat is well situated in the lively part of town in a pedestrian zone. You can reach all the well known sightseeing spots per foot or if you want per metro/tram.

the place is clean and provides all the necessity one needs for a short break for two.

We would come again.
