Serviced Apartments Boavista Palace

Reviewed August 18, 2012

We stayed for three weeks in these apartments and we can strongly recommend them. The accommodation is excellent and the fittings and appliances to a high standard. The apartments are serviced except Sundays. They are situated a 2 minute walk from the Metro and it is just 2 stops to the city centre, the nearest supermarket is next door to the Metro. Tablets for the washing machine and dishwasher can be bought in small quantities from reception. We found the staff helpful and friendly.

Nothing much to add to what was said beforehand, except for the fact that it was very gratifying for me to discover that no expense was spared in order to make one's stay pleasurable. Very good quality kitchenware and attention to every detail, perfect cleanliness (and I mean perfect) and reception staff who are polite and discrete. Congrats!

It's a very nice apartment and the service at the reception is also good. Booking or make a reservation online went smoothly also the checking in and out.
It's near the metro station Carolina Michaëlis and by foot 20min to the center of Porto. It's perfect locations between the city and the sea. The quality and price is very good, it's a nice apartment and every day they come to clean, empty the trashcans and make the bed. You've everything you need in the apartment. Perfect to stay with friends, family, alone,..

The apartments are big, new, clean and has everything you need and more. The beds are very comfortable and are daily made. There is even a gym, but Porto can give you all the exercise you need.
A big recommandation!

These apartments are fantastic! We stayed for a whole week and there was nothing that wasn't provided. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious, comfortable and clean. The maid service should have been every 3 days, but we had bedding and towels changed daily. The Reception staff were very helpful on our first day, providing us with a map and advice on travel.

We did have some people partying in the room above one night, but as soon as we contacted Reception, they acted immediately.

This is the first holiday we've done all our washing and ironing whilst there! Could have gone with half the stuff we packed!!

Would definitely recommend.

I still can't get over how brilliant and how much of a bargain this place was!

The apartment had everything we could possibly need. Oven, microwave, dish washer, washing machine, all the cooking utensils imaginable, 2 TVs, a safe & plenty of storage!

Every day the beds were made and the house keeping staff were very friendly, they don't touch the kitchen/living room/dining room areas so it's up to you to keep clean but for 1 Euro you can buy 2 dishwasher and 2 washing machine tablets from the front desk so it's pretty cheap and easy to keep the place tidy!

If you're planning on getting a taxi to the apartments you might want to bare in mind they are on a newly built road so not all taxi drivers know where they are. Our taxi driver's Sat Nav couldn't find the road and we ended up driving around in circles for about 20 minutes. The best way to get there is the metro, the E Line runs from the airport to Carolina Michaelis which is less than a 3 minute walk from the apartments and will cost 1 Euro 80 (keep the metro card as you can reload it for other journeys and getting a new card each time is an extra 50 cents)

We walked to the city centre most days and it took about 20 minutes but you can also get the metro which will take about 3 minutes to get you into the centre of Porto.

There is a small super market about 5 minutes walk from the apartments which sold most things but we found it was quite limited, there is another outside Trindade station which is much bigger so I would recommend going there for food.

Overall my boyfriend and I really enjoyed our time in Porto and were especially pleased with the accommodation! Would definitely go back!

This apartments are equipped to the best hypermodern standards. This means too that they give a rather cool impression. The sleepcomfort is excellent. You can rent a parking place, but this is not really necessary, because there is in general a free parking place in the street. The meaning of 'serviced apartment' becomes clear when you come in. Not very convenient is that they dont give you new towels every day. We didnt like this detail.
