Virtudes was unknown to me when we booked it, but it was in the right area so l good the chance. What a fantastic find. We spent 3 nights here after our first 3 nights at a different neighborhood. The room was perfect. It had everything you could ask for and more. A little balcony with a table where you could have coffee, a very efficient air conditioner. The room was big and the bathroom, even though a bit small, was perfectly appointed. Designer touches everywhere and it had all the amenities. It was spotless (fridge, coffee, hair dryer etc). I couldn't recommend it more highly. The location in the Baixa neighborhood was also great. You could walk to Ribeira and Cedofeita in minutes and there was a great restaurant attached to it (make sure to book in advance for dinner). If and when we visit Porto, we will surely stay here again. The only thing you need to be aware of is that if you have mobility problems, you want to ask for a room on the first 2 floors. We were on the highest floor. There are a whole lot of gorgeous hardwood steps to get up to it and there is no elevator..so keep that in mind.
We thought the apartment was lovely, spotless, and had everything you'd need for a short city break.
It was quiet but also close to great bars/restaurants, a great location
The owner was always prompt and helpful with advice etc I really couldn't fault it at all.
I would definitely recommend staying here in this brilliant city
