The Muxima apartment is spacious and bright, as one can see on the pictures. It is located on the 2nd floor and accessible by a large staircase. The position in the heart of Porto is great and allows reaching lots of attractions on foot. Unfortunately it comes with a lot of street noise: e.g. we could hear seagulls and cars driving below on the cobblestones at night. Light sleepers – equip yourselves with good earplugs. On the positive side, we enjoyed the large, very comfortable bed.
There was no port wine on arrival but we were greeted with a delicious chocolate cake, milk, tea, coffee, bottled water, jam and pack of Melba toasts. This was probably a better option as we arrived around 22:40, too late to go out and look for places to eat.
There are various books on Porto / Portugal in the apartment. The property is equipped almost as described but there was no kettle. We used a hob to boil some water for our tea. The coffee maker is a nice addition.
There was also no shampoo or body lotion. It is not the reason why we booked the apartment and we were able to purchase the items in the supermarket (pingo doce) 2 doors down. I thought it is best to mention this, so the next guests can check with Ana.
The internet connection and variety of TV stations are great for staying in touch with home news.
Porto is well worth visiting and we have had a lovely time. We recommend a trip to Braga. We took a train from São Bento station. Trains run every hour. The journey is 1h 10 min. Return ticket was €6.80.
The Apartment was wonderful ,clean, spacious and well equipped , very center location right on the edge of the historic center and downtown. Ana was so helpful and we couldn't ask for anything more. We will recommend this place to all our friends and family. Thank you again!
