“How rare...it was just like the photos!”
Reviewed October 18, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

From well before we arrived in Porto, when still at planning stage, we began corresponding with owner Jaime. So when we arrived at Downtown Studio it felt as if we were reconnecting with a friend. Jaime spent a long time orienting us not only to the apartment and its workings, but also great tips on best places to see (and those to avoid) when you only have 7 days. Location was ideal. We loved being right in the midst of Porto life. We loved being able to walk everywhere and on the two days we headed to the coast and inland respectively found such easy access to Sao Bento station a bonus. We want to return!!

All you need for a relaxing stay in beautiful Porto, is in this apartment.
Jaimie met us on arrival, giving us clear instructions for the apartment, and suggestions for restaurants, transport and shops. Everything is close at hand, and if you don't like walking the hilly streets, there are buses, trams and trains close by.
Our only problem was that we should have stayed longer! What a beautiful place!

The apartment was very bright in the old area near the main shopping area. Jamie our host was very gracious and took the time to explain everything about the apartment and good tips on Porto as well even a bottle of red and fresh fruit! Gracias Jamie!

“Perfect home in Porto”

What a charming beautiful place in the centre of Porto.
Cannot say enough about this place, in our 3 months of travel this was THE BEST.
Looks exactly as pictured, wonderful helpful owner who took the time with a map to tell us where to go, what to see, and most importantly- where to eat! :)
Complimentary wine and fruit were a lovely surprise!
Don't know why we ever stayed in hotels, when you can get a place like this cheaper and so much better!
Thank you and i very much hope we come back and stay there again, highly recommended
