We are a retired Australian couple on a driving holiday from Barcelona to Madrid, via Portugal. We found and booked this apartment on TripAdvisor. It would be fair to say that it easily surpassed our expectations.
It is located within easy walking distance of old town Porto, but came with excellent off-street parking for our hire car. On arrival, we were warmly greeted by Carlos and Maria, and given a great introduction to the apartment and the local area, as well as a wonderful bottle of port and a traditional Portuguese cheese. Wow!
The apartment itself is spacious, light and airy. It felt as if it had been set up as somebody’s own home, rather than just a rental. It was generously equipped with everything we could possibly need or want. Our local supermarket was only a five minute walk away.
And of course, it had location, location, location! We fell in love with Porto – there is just so much to do and see. We could have spent much more time there and still wish we could stay longer!
Would highly recommend this wonderful apartment!
Updated lovely apartment within walking of Sao Bento train station(15 min)and many stores and pedestrian streets. Everything in the apartment works well, and you have all the utensils and cooking items you need. Lots of information provided by the owner . Bed is comfortable and shower has plenty of hot water. Lots of little extras provided by the owner. One night had some rowdy people in the park, but overall was fairly quiet. We would go back!
Very comfortable , quiet apartments, good location, nice owner. Everything you need you will find here. We liked this stay very much.
The apartment is beautiful, spotless and located close to everything.
We loved everything about the apartment- the big and spacious living with a very comfy and big sofa, the kitchen ( we did not used it too much but it is very well equipped) and the comfortable bed.
Carlos is a wonderful host and he took his time to give us an idea about the city highlights (he also brought chocolate and wine which melted my heart!...)
I would definitely stay here again.
This apartment is away from the noise, hustle and bustle but is within walking distance of some of the main attractions of Porto. Even more brilliant is the secure car parking space on site included. The apartment is large, airy, spotlessly clean, well furnished and has many household items provided. Great music provided as well.
Close by is a delightful small restaurant with friendly English speaking hosts, their food is good as well and very inexpensive. The son of the owner Miguel met us and was most helpful recommending places to go. We would highly recommend this apartment.
