Great apartment lovely host Maguel was very helpful showed us round the apartment gave us information about area,Porto is Fab lots to do and see,go on the tour buses the red line takes you to a place called Foz it is on the coast and is stunning.If you are able to walk go round the city you see so much on foot.The only downside to the apartment is the hill it is very steep so need to be very fit to get to the top.
Miguel was delightful! Very considerate and communicative regarding our reservation.
Great location for both sides of the river: walk down the cobblestone street to Gaia and the riverfront and restaurants, walk up a few steps to the teleférico to glide down, or cross the walking bridge to the Porto side then cross the river on the water taxi to come back across! The view of both sides of the river was spectacular from this cozy gem. It has everything you need: clothes washer, furnished kitchen, living room, Netflix, internet access, 2 large comfortable beds, and great views. And a great chalkboard wall to write about your stay!
You really can't go wrong with this apartment. The location and the view are second to none. It is ideal for 4 adults (2 couples as the beds are doubles) The beds are comfortable and there is plenty of wardrobe space. All linen and towels are provided plus a hairdryer (always a plus!) There are two coffee machines for making breakfast coffees, Nespresso, or filter. We used both and they were both good. There is a large fridge and small freezer, although we only had breakfast at the apartment, so did not test the cooker. I can't stress enough how wonderful the view is, and how uplifting it is to see it each morning and evening! You are well located here for all the port caves, the river trips and the metro. We could easily walk to all the sights we wanted to see, and to great restaurants and a couple of supermarkets (including the fabulous El Corte Ingles) We are all totally in love with Porto and this apartment. Miguel, the host, is very welcoming and friendly and responded quickly to all my questions about Porto and the apartment before we arrived.
The apartment was amazing, clean and in a wonderful location. Beds were comfortable and the apartment had lots of things we needed. Convenient to bus/trains and douro river. Miguel was a great host and we cannot wait to go back!
My wife and I stayed here with friends for 3 nights in August and I can honestly say it exceeded all our expectations.
Right form the booking, Miguel was excellent which set the tone for our stay. His response to our inquiry was quick and friendly he included accurate directions with the booking. He was there as promised to greet us at the apartment. What a guy he is too, really friendly and clearly passionate about Porto and music !
The apartment itself has superb views of the river, the town of Porto and the iconic bridge. Don't bother bringing toiletries, there are enough to last a lifetime, teas also. The kitchen is great for breakfast or cooking a meal if you so wished. The bedrooms are large and the beds are very comfortable. The apartment also has the biggest bed settee that we had ever seen, we christened it the BFG after the giant, it's that big.
Even though the cable car runs right overhead, you don't hear it at all, and you always know where you are staying.
You are on a hill, mind you where isn't in Porto ? You will be climbing up to the apartment or down from it. My top tip is that you can use the car park lift which is half way down as a shortcut to remove the worst of the climb.
We all loved Porto and will definitely stay here when we return, if we can get in that is.
