The apartment beat our expectations, we were traveling with 2 other couples 6, and we were all extremely happy with apartment and location. Hugo was extremely helpful with local information, drove us to lunch picked us up and took us to nearby market for water and snacks. The view from the apartment was beautiful, great place to enjoy coffee in the morning and wine in the evening. We were in walking distance from the Wharf which had several restaurants and entertainment. Evening walks back to the apartment were welcomed and pleasant as we strolled under several bridges including the Eiffel Bridge. Ubers were close by, as well as the train. Thank you Hugo for everything, we really enjoyed our stay.
The apartment is beautiful and well equipped. We had two couples and were very comfortable. There are three bedrooms so the apartment could easily accomodate three couples. There is a nice balcony with a great view of the Douro river just 2km east of the wharf area of Oporto. The walk is very pleasant taking you past the bridges including the famous Eiffel bridge finished in 1887. The only problem is that this road is currently blocked to auto traffic due to construction. Therefore to drive or Uber to town requires a trip around the city which made an Uber ride about 12 Euros.
None the less this is a very comfortable place to center your Oporto area visit.
Wow. What can I say! We travelled as a group of 3 couples and chose this apartment as on paper it looked perfect for us - and it was! It was clean, modern, big, bright... need I go on?! Hugo was fantastic and we arranged our airport transfers with him. The apartment itself is amazingly well equipped and the beds are comfortable: The showers were great - big monsoon shower heads. The view from the balcony seems too good to be true because it’s so beautiful. The walk to the main part of Porto is a leisurely 40 minutes along the river. Thank you for having us Hugo.. we’ll be back, 5 stars is not enough for this apartment, we give it 10!!!
Excellent, spacious, well equipped , tastefully decorated and modern apartment. Hugo, the owner, made us very welcome and he kindly picked us up from the airport , took us to the supermarket and took us back to the airport at the end of our stay. Overall a great 4 days and we will return to Porto again in the near future.

Needed to book a couple of nights in Porto following a disaster with our own property. The Douro Catwalk was available and provided us with the touch of luxury we needed following the disaster with our existing accommodation. Booking process was easy and Hugo the owner was very responsive, welcoming us at the property at exactly the time we said we would arrive. The property offers everything needed for a luxury stay in a superb location with stunning views. Book with confidence.
A bright, modern apartment where you can relax and enjoy your visit to Porto. The apartment owner, Hugo S picked us up at the airport and brought us to the apartment pointing out some points of interest along the way. The 6th floor has good elevator service so don't worry about having to walk up stairs as you do in the older part of the city.
The view from the patio was exceptional, overlooking the river and the many boats and wildlife that traveled the river each day. The weather was warm in the day and cool in the evening, the apartment was very comfortable temperature throughout the day and night..
The apartment had everything we needed for our week long stay. The 3 bedrooms were spacious , bright and clean, and comfortable beds, with 3 bathrooms and only 4 of us getting ready in the morning for the day ahead was a breeze. The living space and kitchen were just as shown on the Trip Adviser site, bright, clean, modern and spacious. A beautiful and comfortable apartment at great value. We cooked a few meals and had everything we needed to enjoy some time at home including a dishwasher.
Hugo checked in with us after a day or so to see if there was anything we needed and recommended some of his favorite restaurants and places to visit. We tried some of his recommendation and were very happy we did.
Our walk to the city center took about 20 minutes along the beautiful river or about 5 minutes by taxi. So you are close to the heart of all the action without being in the middle of it 24/7.
Our week came to an end much too fast, we really enjoyed Porto and the great accommodations. We would definitely stay there on our next visit.
