A most enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described. It was clean and well equipped. We received a warm and friendly reception and were given recommendations for sight seeing and restaurants. Patricia was extremely helpful and was only a phone call away.

The only thing I would improve upon, as we had a late arrival at 10.30 p.m, would be a small welcome box as we were unable to get to a supermarket until the next morning. If we'd had an earlier arrival the welcome box would be unnecessary as the supermarket is just around the corner.

The apartment is very well situated for sightseeing in Porto and we were able to walk to most of the attractions. The metro and busses are close by if you wish to travel further.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just right for my husband and I. Restaurants for dinner are just a short block or two from the apartment. Sarah welcomed us and provides great recommendations for dinner and how to get around the city. The apartment was very clean and had a balcony. Too bad we didn't get to use it.

I love this charming apartment!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 3 nights in the charming apartment and I would do so again. I like the location and the place is just wonderful and the outdoor terrace is beautiful. Everything worked and the WiFi signal was great. Add plus for so much art on the walls. And Sara, the woman who gave us an orientation, is a gem. She gave us some good tips for restaurants and other things to do and see in Porto.

Amazing apartment with little garden and patio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and love the little apartment that is almost an art gallery with all the pictures on the wall, it is close to everything and easy walking to most of the interesting places and the river. Marta is also a special person as she spent some time with us showing us where to go on the maps and what to do and where to eat . Thanks Marta. Highly recommended

Excellent location, well kept and clean property, comfortable with all facilities.

  • 4 of 5

The welcome we recieved was good and Marta was very informative.The location was what we were looking for easy access from the airport on the metro and much of what we wanted to see in Porto in walking distance. Also a good range of restaurants and bars in the local vacinity.

The apartment was much as we expected and was well maintained.The bed was comfortable which was good and it was nice having an outdoor area for sitting out in.

The only downside was that the upstairs neighbours walked around a lot and the floor insulation did not seem to be that good, but as we were only there for a week and out a lot of the time it was not a real problem.

Overall we enjoyed our stay in Porto and the apartment. I would recommend it.
