A fine stay in Porta

  • 4 of 5

This lovely 3 bedroom apartment on the 9th floor in Porto suited us perfectly. Very spacious living/dining room, well-equipped kitchen, small but interesting balcony and airiness was much appreciated. The location, steps from the Casa da Musica metro stop and with easy access to bus lines, grocery and other shopping, and with an interesting local "scene" (don't miss the cemetery, the Casa, and the Bom Successo market) was great. And the quiet was also much enjoyed. The only downsides were that the clothes washer was not functioning, and there is quite a bit of evidence of former tenants: a bit of paint and some minor repairs would help. But we would recommend this spot as a great stopover in Porto.

A Comfortable Stay

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is large and spacious as shown, with a nice view of the city lights at night. Our group of six was met at the apartment by Paulo's wife who let us in, exlained details, got us logged into the internet and even drove us to a grocery store and back since the close one was closed that day for some reason. What a gracious beginning which we really appreviated!

Being Americans, we were surprised there were no topsheets on the beds, that the comforter covers act as the top sheet. We think that is a European style. With only one couch in the living room, four of us would sit at the dining room table, and 2 on the couch. The kitchen was nice and big too, but the 2 cup coffeemaker was undersized for a group our size. Overall, it was a good location and a very good value. Thank you, Paulo!

A wonderful retreat in Porto

  • 5 of 5

We stayed four nights at Casa da Música in March 2016. Meeting up with Paulo and getting situated was easy and effortless. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and quiet. It has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a balcony, a fully-functional kitchen, and large living room. The bed was comfortable and there were no problems with Wifi. From the balcony, you can see a good part of the city, as well as the Atlantic. The apartment is away from the hub of tourist activity, but the Metro is within walking distance and it is easy to find a taxi. Some of the major sites (like Casa da Música and the Contemporary Art Museum) are also within walking distance. The neighborhood has ample grocery stores, restaurants, and shops. We would definitely stay here again.

Big warm apartment

  • 5 of 5

We visited Portugal in late winter and it was was cold and wet most of the time.

So we appreciated this warm big apartment.

There is a very nice small grocery store on the ground floor of this building - not at all expensive compared to the big supermarket prices - and there's a really helpful kind young woman, who speaks excellent English, who was a great help to us.
