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

It was great to have a modern little apartment with kitchen and washing machine. Well appointed and great location so we... More

Just back from a great week end in Porto, made all the better by staying in PortoSense Apartments. Lovely room with great view and close to all amenities. Free WiFi and Kitchen facilities, very clean and decor to a high standard. Will definitely be back.

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

When you reserve a studio you are presented with pictures from the duplex apartment on the 4th floor, which has a nice view of the river, but the view from the studios is towards the neighbouring buildings in a narrow street. Ugly! I felt cheated. It is true that the studio was well furnished and nice, and the location is... More

The apartment is in an excellent location which is just beside the Douro. Everything in Porto is within walking distance. There are a lot of restaurant nearby and we've been to Jimao (just opposite to the apartment door) and Chez Lapin (3 minutes walk) which are all very nice. We had the S.Clara room on the 1st floor. The apartment... More
