Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment's description is absolutely accurate; Jose's balcony overlooking the Douro is incredible- perfect place to start the day with a cup of coffee and finish with a good glass of Port. In addition to the apartment itself being clean and well-furnished, the location is top-notch- walking distance to great restaurants, cafes, the waterfront, and the historic city center of Porto. Upon arriving at the apartment, Jose met us and did an awesome job showing us around and making us feel at home, to include having a decanter of Port and some fresh fruit waiting for us!

Before booking this apartment, I read previous reviews, and I'm glad I knew about the location of the apartment. As Porto is a very hilly city on the banks of the Douro river, you must either descend or ascend a long set of stairs to get to Jose's place. When you arrive with your bags, I recommend the short walk from the Porto-Sao Bento train station, which allows you to walk down the steps with bags in hand instead of up from the river.

All in all, we had a great experience, and I highly recommend Jose's Porto apartment!

Beautiful location and view

  • 3 of 5

While the location was excellent, and the view from the balcony as beautiful as promised. The apartment was spotlessly clean. It wad not clear to us that to get to the apartment, you either had to go up about 175 steps, or down 135. That is challenging with luggage. Also the floor with the living space had an air conditioner, the bedrooms did not . It was very hot, and in the smaller bedroom if you left the window open, there were people walking up and down the stairs and making noise until very late. There was no coffee maker in the kitchen, so we couldn't even have breakfast, one of the reasons for staying in an apartment. All information that would have been helpful.
