There were many issues with this appartment.

  • 2 of 5

This appartment definitely had a "water issue". Water didn't want to leave the sink in the kitchen and kept threatening to flow over. The shower was very awkward to use and the hot water there was very difficult to tame. But maybe the most disturbing thing was that we were partly accused by the owner of flooding the appartment in the lower floor immediately after arriving (it was not clear who is causing the problem). We were required to take extra care not to wet the bathroom floor and were shown the only correct way of taking a shower. We needed two days to turn off the disturbing automatic lights in the main room. Sometimes the automatic lights turned off automatically while taking a shower. We noticed mould in dry branches that are used as a decoration. Plastic flowers and plastic fruit on display were also not nice. Actually the appartment was like a miniature Porto: great on picture, but when you look closer, you keep noticing new flaws. Besides, the appartment is situated on Santo Ildefonso, a particularly neglected, dirty, run-down street. And make sure to park your car in the private garage, since a private company takes cars that are not parked properly and you need to pay one hundred Euros to get it back (it's a lucrative industry in this overrated city!).

Owner's Response: Hello Borut, I am completly surprised by your comments about my apartment. It is the first time that I know that you had problems in the apartment, during the course of your stay. I never received any contact from you about any kind of problems you might be having. I always take care that the guests feel comfortable and safe. If they have any kind of problems, I always ask to contact me to solve them. After all problems can happen in any home, it is not true? It is true that there was a water infiltration problem in the building, not in the apartment, but the comfort, convenience and safety of guests has never been called into question.Problem was detected in the building's sewer tube and it was immediately repaired by responsible technicians. After the guests do the check-out, I do a general check to the apartment to clean and repair some problem. When I’ve done that after your check-out I do not detected any malfunction. The water in the kitchen sink was and is flowing well and did not detect any problems in the shower. For convenience and comfort the lights are automatic and are regulated through various visible switches placed on the walls. I do not understand how could you have problems. The apartment is located in an historical town area of Oporto, in a typical street and full of magic and magnetism of the city. If you want to visit a city with ultra-modern buildings probably Oporto will not be the best option. About parking, Portugal is a organized country with rules to be complied. As in any country of the world. Around the apartment there are many places where you can park without problems, free of charges on the public street, or not expensive in private garages. But there are also parking signs that must be respected. I'm sorry that your stay has not gone as you expected, and that you have not taken the best view of our beautiful city. I am sure that your opinion will be differente in a next visit, and of course with another spirit. All the best for you and your family. My very best regards Maria Azevedo

Appartement très confortable, très calme et agence avec goût.

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très agréable séjour à Porto, où nous avons été accueillis par Maria qui est très sensible au bien être de ses hôtes. L'appartement est très bien situé au cœur de la vieille ville tout en étant très calme. A proximité : bus, métro, mais pouvons tout à fait faire la ville a pieds.
