Perfect little place
We loved our stay in Porto and felt the apartment was in the perfect spot. Quiet neighborhood with a nice walk to the city center and a short ride to the beach. Irene was a fantastic hostess and we appreciated all the nice touches.
Thanks for the great comments! Irene your host
Super clean and nice apartment a little bit away from centre of the city
A quite small but amazingly cozy and clean Appartement - perfect for two people. It is a little bit of a walk to the centre of the city but in turn you have a more quite environment.
Thanks Elena for the kind comment.
The area is friendly and you can find every you need .... the busy city centre is not too far but far enough ....Welcome anytime. Regards Irene
Beautiful apartment felt like home
I stayed in the Luis 1 for most of the month of October 2018. It's a lovely modern apartment with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Kitchen is fully outfitted; comfortable bed; the whole place was very clean. Wish I had used the terrace more, but it was almost always hot and sunny up there (not that I'm complaining about the beautiful weather). The neighborhood is a nice mix of residences and small shops, convenient to downtown and other neighborhoods which are fun to explore. The best resource of this property is its manager, Irene. She was always available and helpful, very gracious and good humored. I had an excellent stay.
Many thanks for the kind words. Welcome anytime. Regards Irene
Great apartment in a very nice city
We stayed at this lovely apartment for a week last week. We found that everything we needed was provided, and our host/manager Irene (who is terrific) even went out to buy us a corkscrew when it was noticed that there wasn't one on the premises. The location of the apartment is a bit away from the heart of the city, and expect to do some walking,busing or "Ubering", but not a problem. There is a supermarket a short distance away, and several fantastic bakeries very close by. The terrace is wonderful for watching the city wake up or go to sleep, and perfect for hanging out after a day of exploring charming Porto. Thank you Irene for being such a good host!
Thank you Kevin and Peggy! You were amazing Guests!
Nice Appartement but unfortunately located at a busy street. Hence quite loud.
Very friendly reception by Irene. She was very helpfull and gave us some usefull tips. As mentioned above, only the location of the appartment was a minus.
Thank you Frank for the nice comments. Welcome anytime. Irene
Lovely place, little confused about the billing.
The apartment was beautiful and very clean. The rooftop deck was fabulous Irene was very welcoming and helpful, the location was a little farther from the center than I thought, about 20+ mins walk, The bed was hard but some people like that. Everything was fine until checkout when we were asked for more money for taxes in cash! We should have been informed before hand not at check out, as we had already paid beforehand for the apartment through Vrbo . She was still texting is for more money even after we left. Too bad
Antes demais, quero atribuir a quota parte de culpa à Homeaway pelo incidente desagradável que não soube resolver até hoje, e que vou aqui expor. Foi difícil tomar a decisão de usar do nosso direito à resposta ao comentário dos hospedes, que em tudo foi influenciado por uma interpretação errada do facto de os ter contactado após o check out, só assim é compreensível a mudança radical de opinião que se deu entre o momento da saída e o dia seguinte.
Então passo a contar: um dia depois dos hóspedes saírem recebemos da Homeaway a informação do montante de pagamento da estadia, e logo aí descobri que a segunda tranche de pagamento da estadia (65%) que supostamente deveria ser paga 4 dias antes da estadia, afinal não tinha sido paga! E não houve sequer, como habitualmente, um qualquer mail da Homeaway a informar que deveríamos ser nós a solicitar o pagamento no check in ou durante a estadia.
Os hospedes provavelmente baseados na convicção que forneceram a informação para pagamento com o seu cartão de crédito nunca se deram ao trabalho de verificar esta situação.
Já durante o check out, a questão da taxa turística causou algum desconforto nos hospedes quando os informei que só tinham pago a estadia à Homeaway e que teriam de as pagar directamente ao alojamento, mas com alguma calma lá consegui acalmar a desconfiança criada. Despedi-me dos hospedes que seguiam para outro ponto do país com a sensação que deixamos a melhor das impressões a todos os níveis.
...Assim que constato a falta de pagamento começo a enviar a primeira mensagem, e a partir daí todos os contactos por escrito foram ignorados e deram origem ao que eu considero uma péssima avaliação aqui, para quem escreveu e demonstrou, ainda na casa ter gostado imenso da estadia. Ainda assim fiquei descansada pela boa impressão que tinha, pareciam pessoas serias e honradas e achei que o assunto iria resolver-se rapidamente, julgava eu, até porque a Homeaway esclareceria o assunto com os hóspedes. Não suspeitava eu que desde aí nada disso aconteceu. Até hoje, desde o dia 10/set/18 nunca mais conseguimos cobrar os 156,00€ em débito. Consegui que a Homeaway solicitasse uma única vez o pagamento ao cliente que indicou que após o regresso de férias trataria do assunto, e nunca o fez até hoje. Lamento que este casal me tenha deixado ficar mal perante a Urban Views, exigiria no mínimo o pagamento e um pedido de desculpas.
Respeitosamente, Irene Veiga on behalf of Urban Views AL Oporto. Porto, 17 de Outubro de 2018.
The location is ideal for visitors with the subway and bus station just a short walk away. Lots of traditional retail shops and a beautiful public garden. Visit Lapa church attached to a romantic XIX cemetery. Go to the Castle of the Cheese beach by bus or car in 15-18 minutes. The historic city center is not to far as you can think, the walk of 18 minutes easy to go ... difficult to come - use bus 901 or 906 and change to 600 on TRINDADE STATION to go just at your door!
