This is a review for BN Apt Ribeira, not Palacio. A few days before we arrived in Porto, we received an email with directions and ways to get from the airport to the apartment. It is quite easy to take the metro from the airport. You do have to change lines once but it is easy to do. It took... More

This was the second time my family stayed in BNApartments. The location is excellent. Every city attraction in a walking distance. The city centre is only 10 minutes away. The rooms are clean and the kitchen is well equipped. TV channels offer many movies and series in English with Portuguese subtitles. High speed Wi-Fi is good but as there is... More

The staffs were welcoming, the apartment was really comfortable and well decorated with a stunning view from the Douro's river. The location was not that good and also was quite hardy to find a place to park close the hotel. Depends on the room you will be, you have a lot of steps to cross with no lift.

Clearly designed by architects. And furnished by Ikea! Don't let the Google map image dissuade you. It was taken in 2009 before the building was renovated. Only complaint is soundproofing. You can here voices, scrapping furniture and smell cigarette smoke from the other apartments.

This is a wonderful block of apartments in a quiet side street near the Palacio park. It is within easy walking distance of two small supermarkets and a few cafes. The town centre with all its bars, cafes, restaurants etc is only a 10 minute walk or so away. Manuel will arrange connection to the modern Porto airport if required.... More

The apartment itself is on a good location and it is clean exept the shower in which you can find mold. Is located in the art district and walking distance from the city centre,bars and restaurant. But despite the fact of the cleanness the ground floor which we're in is like an basement and there is a moisture smell everywhere... More

Very nice and clean apartment with a great location. The location is very quiet with many nearby cafes and restaurants. All interesting places within walking distance. Very kind manager who explained everything about dining, shopping and old places to visit. The kitchen well equipped and the bed very comfy.

Very nice and stylish (Ikea as usual, but still cosy and comfortable) apartment with a great location-within only 7 min walking distance to city center, 5 min to small supermarket and park. Located in a gallery district. Very polite manager met us and gave us city maps and adviced what to visit in the city, where to eat and buy... More

We stayed here for two weeks in January. Great welcome. Had a studio to start with which would be ok for a few nights. We moved to a one bedroom apartment which was fantastic. Apartments are well equipped for self catering. Cleaning service twice a week. Felt very safe and secure.

Great place! We stayed here for 4 nights. We had an appartment with two separate beds in one bedroom, and a sleeping couch (quite comfortable) in the living room. The appartment was fully equiped, including the kitchen, and a comfortable bathroom. After two nights we even got cleaning service. Highly recommended!
