We are two couples staying at these marvellous apartments right now. I absolutely endorse all previous comments about the immaculate presentation, decor, comfortable beds and fabulous location. Every single detail has been thought of and these apartments should be the benchmarks for all others!
My only suggestion would be that the directions for arriving by car were not quite clear enough and it was pretty stressful being lost in the medieval back alleys! The TomTom got confused. In retrospect, we would have parked the car in the carpark, and got a taxi with the luggage to the apartments.

Room Tip: I am sure there is no difference in the quality. The lift is very efficient.

Everything was absolutely perfect: ultra-confortable place, wonderful view, attention and style for each single detail (they even left chocolate for our twins!) and extreme cleanliness. A pleasure for all senses...

The PortoSense apartments are in a terrific location looking down on the central Ribeiro Square and across the Douro river in the old part of town. They are in a lovely old building, stylishly decorated, spotlessly clean, with fantastic facilities: cable TV, well equipped kitchen with stove, dishwasher, and washing machine, lovely bathrooms with everything you could need, a lift to carry luggage upstairs, and great beds and linen. The owners are welcoming and extremely helpful. This is one of the nicest places you could hope to stay in Portugal, with lots of good restaurants close by, interesting and picturesque little back alleys to explore, and close to all the main sights. I highly recommend these apartments.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are great, but the higher up, the better the views.

Truly had a wonderful weekend in Porto and great accomadtions at the PortoSense! The apartment was more than I expected with spectacular views of the river, bridge and all the port houses across. A great location to explore all aspects of the city and easy access on the tram out to the beaches and ocean. From the moment I booked the staff was very responsive and was able to accomadate our early arrival along with airport transporation.

Room Tip: If you are staying during the colder months I recommend bringing a pair of nice wool socks to wear when lounging around the apartment as older homes do not have central heating the portable heaters can only do so much and always nice to have when sitting enjoying the views from the small but quaint balacony!!

The hotel was very centrally located and close to all the restaurants.. Nicely decorated and very functional. There was a nice view and the access to the building was easy and the internet access one of the fastest I have found. There was a small cafe across the street with a good selection of breakfast items and snacks. The staff also provided easy airport Taxi pickup and drop off for 21 euros each way.
