We enjoyed our stay very much.

Location, location, location. The apartment provides an excellent place from which to explore Porto. There are stairs before one reaches the elevator and there are limited amenities provided but the the unit is very comfortable for two couples.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This place was in a great location to all of the sites, dining and transportation. It was really in an ideal spot. We were on the 5th floor, so thankful for the elevator. The apartment was clean.

We were not aware of the $200 cash deposit, but it really was not a big deal. Just noting here for future renters.

This apartment was wonderful with an awesome terrace to enjoy your wine or lunch with a terrific view! Prime location right near the river and the stock exchange; spacious, plenty of closet space and drawers. Our only issue was the shower upstairs could be improved but that can be overlooked with all the other amenities this apartment has to offer. Would definitely recommend this apartment to friends and family! Thanks, Marc

Stunning appartment in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this spacious and clean apartment. The location of the apartment couldn't be better. It is right in the centre of the old, picturesque part of town and within two minutes walk of the river. Marc and Katya were also very friendly and helpful.

Thank you x
