“Fabulous apartment, fabulous city”

Had an excellent week long stay here. Apartment is a great size for two with lovely terrace overlooking the river to enjoy the sunshine. The apartment is quiet as just outside the heart of Ribeira and bedroom is situated at the back of the building so no disturbance from the roadside.

Mario was brilliant - he picked us up from the airport and was on hand during the week when we needed to get in touch with him.

We're planning on going back to Porto and would definitely stay here again.

“A lovely apartment in an excellent location”
Reviewed June 20, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This apartment is perfectly located close to the Riberia District,with lots of restaurants,and also the Red Hop on-Hop off Bus that goes past the door.
Mario R is the perfect host,he picked us up from the airport even though it was after 8PM,gave us lots of info and booked a Taxi for our return.
The apartment is well furnished, comfortable and has the added bonus of the outside balcony with views over the river,the only downside are the 68 steps leading up to the apartment on the 4th floor.
We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this apartment.

“superb location”
Reviewed June 14, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Weekend stay, ideal for accessing old town and riverside amenities. Excellent facilities and three well rated restaurants within 5 ins. walk by river. Need to be healthy to manage uphill walk into heart of old town but well worth it! Mario a great host and very generously picked us up from the airport early evening.

“Great location”
Reviewed May 18, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We stayed here in February 2016. We have two small children and everyone was very comfortable. The location of the apartment is great and easy to get to from key places that we wanted to see in Porto. The weather for our trip was completely terrible, so it was nice to have an apartment that we could "come home to" when we were soaked from our travels.

A straightforward apartment, of modern style and comfortable, Ikea-type furnishings. Because it's high up (lots of stairs) and on the river frontage there are really good views from the small sunny terrace. Mario was helpful in letting us leave luggage until a late flight.
Although shown as for up to 4 size really makes it only ok for 2.

“Great location, fantastic view!”

Our 5 nights started with Mario offering to pick us up at the airport, a very welcome offer and a time saver. If he is not available, it is a 20 minute, 20 euro taxi ride, or a much longer metro and bus/taxi/or walk.

The beds were very comfortable, the linens and towels were of a good quality. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, utensils and cookware. There was not a toaster or microwave oven, but we managed reheating a few things in the convection oven. The TV only had Portuguese stations, which Mario hopes to expand soon.

The apartment is a 15-20 minute walk in one direction to the grocery store, and the same distance to the main tourist area. You can also take either the trolley or a bus to either as they run right in front of the apartment. There are a couple of very good restaurants 5 minutes in either direction.

The stairwell to the apartment is well lit and very clean. The only downside is that the apartment is on the fourth floor, 68 stairs up. We are 70 years old and in very good condition, so this was not a problem for us. Just a bit of a surprise. It's a great apartment once you make the climb.
