"A great apartment, photos are accurate and Raul is a thoughtful host who gave us an excellent orientation to Porto!"
Almost right in the middle but not quite - that means its a really great place to stay with parks, river views, museums and fantastic range of eateries from tapas bars to posh restaurants. The long balcony is not high enough to see the river but the sun shines on it most of the afternoon and well into the evening making for a great place to relax before or after dinner. All the usual stuff is provided including a small rear balcony which can be used for drying clothes straight from the washing machine. The two double bedrooms are internal (therefore quiet) and a tad tight but have enough space for clothes hanging and tucking away baggage. The furniture is eclectic in style but newish and in good nick and does the business for 4 people. We really enjoyed staying in the apartment and to cap it all Raul was very helpful and attentive.
We had a really great time at Raul's place. The location was fantastic & Raul was very informative about places to visit. The communication was great too. We definitely hope to go back next time we are in Porto. Highly recommend
Thank you Raul, we had a great time there and the apartment was awesome. Very complete and in a quite well location.
The appartment is very well located, 5 minutes walking from Ribeira's area. The appartement is comfy and very clean. Raul is a nice host, he will recommend you nice places in Porto. I recommend it.
Great stay at Raul's very central apartment. He shared a lot of tips for sightseeing and eating out when we first arrived, which really helped us orient ourselves. The apartment is comfortable and the two bedrooms are quiet. If you have guests sleeping on the sofa bed, you should expect some noise from the street- a lot when there is a party at the downstairs restaurant, less when the restaurant is closed. Raul provided heaters which made for comfortable stay. The only thing that would have made the stay better for us would be an elevator, but we knew we'd have to tackle the stairs with the stroller before we booked. We loved Porto and hope to return to Raul's place!
My wife and I stayed at Raul's place with our two kids (4 & 7) for six nights. Even before arriving we had a good experience as Raul noticed that I'd accidentally made the booking for six people instead of four and he refunded the additional amount. Check-in was smooth despite our flight being an hour late. The apartment was perfect for our needs with everything within walking distance. Nice big windows let in plenty of light during the day but with shutters to keep the light out if you're sleeping in. Kitchen was sufficient for cooking a couple of basic meals and we were regulars at the bakery directly across the street. We would highly recommend.
