Room with a view!

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples staying in this beautiful apartment. Even after a late arrival, we were met with a smile and not to worry, no extra charge, unlike other properties we have been to. The apartment was in an old building with a bright modern interior, spotlessly clean and plenty of room for the 4 of us. In particular, we liked the separation of the 2 sets of rooms, 1 upstairs with it's own bathroom and the other downstairs with an en-suite. The views both front and back were stunning and the small balcony was ideal for a wee aperatif before dinner.

Porto itself was a wonderful place to visit, good restaurants and shops and plenty to keep us occupied for a week. We found the locals very friendly and willing to help a few tourists when needed and obviously very proud of their lovely city.

Although this apartment is quite expensive, it was certainly worth paying for, as they say, 'you get what you pay for'

Great Location + Wonderful Views

  • 5 of 5

This recently renovated property is conveniently located to most everything in Porto. Yet, it is located on a higher floor (accessible by elevator) so you you can escape the sometimes chaotic tourist environment at the street level. The furniture, fixtures and bedding were all at a high standard. We enjoyed staying at this property and would do so again.

Well appointed apartment in a great location!

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is very nicely updated in a perfect location for exploring Porto. The view particularly at night is unique and it is an easy walk to both the Sao Bento train station and the other side of the river to the port caves. The apartment is in a busy section of town but with the windows closed you hear very little. It was cool while we were there so it was not a problem keeping them closed at night, but the air conditioning is only in the upstairs bedroom so not sure how noisy it might be in the summer. We were very comfortable as a party of four, and the kitchen worked well for us as we cooked every night. There is an elevator in the building, however it is up a double flight of stairs from the front door. Communication was complicated because we were not given Katia's direct number, everything had to go through Marc. Because of this we waited half an hour when we arrived without hearing from anyone. We parked in the lot right across the street, very convenient but also very expensive so we quickly turned the car back. You do not need a car here as the public transportation is excellent and will get you anywhere you want to go. For our first visit to Porto we found this location and this apartment to fit our needs well, and we would return.

Very good apartment in ideal location

  • 4 of 5

For our first time in Porto it was great to stay somewhere with a lovely view over the river (from the bedroom) and within walking distance of sights. Weather was chilly so good to be able to have heating on. Apartment was comfortable and modern with plenty of storage. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated being able to check out later than normal due to late flight home.
