The room is very nice and cozy with the old interior. The view to the square (Praca Riberia)and the Duro river from the balcony is very nice. The apartment is also very well equipped for self catering. The service from the owner and personal was very good. They were very supportive and the response was very fast in case we... More

A very beautiful full-equipped appartment located right in the center with awesome views to the river. If you want to travel and feel like home (but better), don't even doubt it. There's no better place. It's a renovated building with a very very beautiful and clean appartment on each floor and all the facilities and furniture you need to enjoy... More

This appartment is in an excellent location to enjoy Porto. It is extremely well equipped and is immaculately clean and well maintained. The service provided by the owners was first class. We loved sitting out on the balcony watching all the people and the boats we wouldn't hesitate recommending this property and would certainly stay here again when we return... More

Spacious, stylish apartment w/ all the comforts of home, including washer and refrigerator. Located a stone's throw from Douro River & steps away from view of Dom Louis I bridge, port cellars across the river, and restaurants and shops below. Management went above and beyond in helping us w/ our particular requests. Excellent wifi.

Excellent location and beautiful apartments. Instead of going home on the other side of town, decided to after going out in Baixa to just sleep over on one of these fantastic apartments on a very picturesque part of town - Ribeira. All amenities in place, nice TV, excellent bed and kitchenette, etc. The only little setback is the noise in... More

We had the top floor and it was roomy for two but could I be for 3-4people. Lovely decor and has all the things you need. Note bathroom might be... More

The windows open right up to full-scale living with the action of the streets. It is great walking distance to the square as well as the other side of... More

This has to be the nicest apartment I've stayed in. Perched atop a tower right in the middle of the Ribeira district, it has wonderful views of the river from the balcony and is situated within range of a great selection of restaurants, bars and cafes. Because it is on a busy square, it can be quite noisy first thing... More
