Wonderful owners. Beautiful apartment with everything you could need. Washing machine, fully equipped kitchen, gorgeous decor, lift (elevator), safe, etc. Really loved this place and wish we could have stayed longer! I can't recommend this place enough. Best apartment!

Beautiful location. Great kitchen. But for the price airco should be included. Now windows have to be open. That means noise untill 2 am ( public) and from 6 am (cleaning the Praca). If you do not mind the noise, this is a top location.

It's difficult to overstate how nice our stay was at PortoSense. We arranged with the staff for a taxi from the airport. The transfer was painless. The location of the apartment is perfect, and the apartment itself was beautiful. Communication was prompt and helpful. I fully recommend PortoSense for a stay that makes you feel like you are one of... More

We stayed here on Thursday and Friday night and were bowled over by how fantastic this place was. The building is not staffed at all times which we felt gave us a great amount of independence and privacy and when we needed help we were able to reach a member of staff easily by email and get a swift reply....

Husband, son and I arrived Easter Sunday and were greeted by the owners who went out of their way to assure we had a wonderful stay in Porto. Cristina responded to my emails promptly, arranged nicest taxi driver to meet us at airport and was so helpful with restaurant suggestions (loved Jimao). Our time in Porto could not have been...

A couple stayed here for one night in the middle of a trip across Portugal. The location is ideal. It cannot be better in this city. It is a rented apartment, which differs from all others I saw before in one aspect: design. It is stylish, indeed. Not only all details in room and bath were taken into account -... More

Spacious and comfortable. The building that houses PortoSense is right on the river square. Only the top floor faces the river but you can get a view looking sideways out the big windows that open wide. Our stay was very quiet except for a Saturday night that was a big festival night. It's possibly this area gets noisier in summer?... More

We were greeted warmly at the door by wonderful staff. The room was very well organized, well equipped, and charming. Very impressive and well thought out. Don't hesitate to stay here when visiting Porto!
