Absolutely stunning and modern apartment with excellent views of the Ouro River and overlooking Praca da Ribeira. Can't be more central than this location. Very private and modern apartment. Just beautiful. Highly recommend this accommodation. Very helpful staff arranged transport to and from airport ( thanks Claudia)

We wanted to be right on the Unesco World Heritage site of the Rebeira looking at the Douro River while drinking a glass of port wine in the comfort of our own place. Porto Sense was perfect. The studio was much larger than a hotel room because of the extra kitchen space. The building is historic and a landmark in... More

My wife and I spent two nights at Portosense in June 2015 while on an extended visit to Spain and Portugal. We could not have been more pleased with the apartment - we were in the penthouse overlooking Plaza Ribera - and the location. The apartment is modern, bright and beautifully equipped. Plaza Ribera is right on the river and... More

The apartment is right next to a busy square which gets a lot of tourists during the day and into the evening. If location is what you are looking for, you cannot go wrong with this. If you are someone who battles to sleep through noise, you may wish to consider as there is a lot of traffic (and horn... More

We stayed 3 nights here in the apartment on 2 stores right in the heart of busy Praca de ribeira and a stones throw from the river. It is noisy until late be we were tired and slept well. It was great to have a modern little apartment with kitchen and washing machine. Well appointed and great location so we... More

A friend and I stayed in the PortoSense Apartments' "Sao Joao" duplex for two nights in April, 2015, and were absolutely delighted with this choice. The "Sao Joao" is a top-floor, duplex apartment (accessible by elevator), in a centuries-old building located right on "Praça da Ribeira," the heart of Porto's lively and scenic riverfront district. This spacious, tastefully designed and... More

It was a perfect experience in Porto. The apartment was very centrally located and close to all the restaurants.It was Nicely decorated and very functional. There was a nice view and the access to the building was easy and the internet access was fast. All the necessary bits and pieces were included in this apartment.

We stayed two nights in two different apartments at PortoSense. Both apartments had balconies with amazing views of the Douro River. The location could not be better for exploring Porto. Both apartments were beautifully and tastefully decorated, and had everything you could possibly need. We were extremely pleased and would return with no hesitation and recommend to everyone. Loved this... More
