“Excellent apartment for a very comfortable stay in Porto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Very nice apartment, were you can relax after a long day in Porto.
A good equipped kitchen for preparing breakfast or dinner. Especially if you stay longer in Porto and you don’t want to eta out every day.
Apartment is clean, good beds, free wifi.
Near shops, metro station around the corner. And so are a few bakeries, cafes and the Mercado Bom Sucesso. With metro only 25 minutes to airport.

Apartment divided in 3 areas (dinning+kitchen, room, bathroom). Dinning room was separated with a small wall to the kitchen. Two terraces (room and dinning room) were available. Perfect internect connection. Two big TVs (room and dinning room).

Bed was confortable and enormous and the lockers were huge as well.

Curtains were perfect as they could stop all light if needed. Bathroom had amenities. Kitchen was equiped (except oil, vinegar or stuff to clean). The fridge was big.

Iron and washing machine provided. Daily cleaning.

No real reception, as it's the security staff who checks you in and out and gives you the key. They can also provide you a map and some information.

The apartments are not in the center and they're a bit difficult to find. It's in a very quiet place and only 100 m far from the metro station. Metro is only 2 stations away from the center and 30 minutes away from the airport.

The apartments is adjacent to a restaurant with special prices for the clients, but we did not use it and we can't give any opinion.

Elevators were not big, but that's not a major deal. Supermarket far from the apartment. There's a shopping center (named Brasilia) close to the apartment, and it claims to be the oldest in Europe, but it's in fact a maze with no soul inside.

We had 4 of these apartments amongst our group of 8, and this was a particularly good way to travel with such a group - we could hop from lounge to lounge for sundowners or breakfast, and everyone was enamoured with the chic apartments and the super helpful staff. We'd expected something much more spartan/bare-bones but it was super.

With the sliding doors open, these city apartments will let in some noise but the apartments have excellent aircon, so no need.

They are not immediately in the center but this was never a problem. A metro nearby sorts everything.

Our family recently had a lovely stay here , it was my brothers wedding locally and we booked a few rooms. The quality of the accommodation is excellent I could find no fault. The location is near the metro station and a nice 45 min walk to the river.The reception staff were very professional and helpful and the cleaning staff kept the place spotless. Overall I would highly recommend these Apartments. It would have been nice to use the roof terrace but it was closed since the end of August.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

The apartment looked really new and it was clean. Equipped with two bathrooms (one with shower).
It was an apartment with one bedroom a living room and a studio. Since we are a family of 5 we used the pull-out-couch in the living room and the studio-couch.
It was fully equipped (microwave, fridge, washing machine, two TV sets, wifi, coffee machine ...) just like somebody was living in it.
Convenient parking in the basement (5Euro/day only).
The Metro station is at 2min walking distance and you can be downtown in a few minutes.
