The apartment is very nice and cosy. Someone had done her/his best to make it comfortable and personal. It is well equipped, everything you need.
The apartment is situated in an old area of Porto, not where all the tourists are :O) It takes approximately 10 - 15 minutes to walk to the center of Porto. You can also use the metro which is within two minutes walk.
Pedro is a very nice landlord. He waited for us though we were more than two hours delayed from Lisbon. Met us at the metro station.
Pedro has a shop right across the street where the metro station is. There you can buy fruit, wine, shampoo, and a lot of other things. He didn't tell us about his shop, because he wouldn't´t put pressure on his guest to buy there.
We bought ticket from the blu bus (22 €) for two days. The tickets included bus trips, a cruise on the Duoro river and a visit to the Burmester wine cellar. Unfortunately we were a bit disappointed about the bus because it didn't´t show up once. We hade to wait for more than one hour while the red and the yellow bus passed us. We contacted the blue bus company and were offered a prolonged ticket. The visit to the wine cellar and the cruise (one hour) was okay, although we hade to wait for more than one hour for the cruise as they hade decided to have lunch in the middle of the day regardless of the timetable. Well.....
We also made a day trip to Pinhao with Living tours. It was a really nice trip and our driver and guide Ricardo was very nice an told us a lot about Portugal´s history and other things. We had a very nice lunch in Lamego. Actually one of the few good meals we had in Porto. Sorry to way that, but the food wasn't´t very good. You get a very big portion, but it doesn't´t taste very much. Wish you a better luck with restaurant! But the coffee Wow!! and the Pastel de nata! So good! I liked Porto very much! An exciting, interesting and beautiful city!
A very nice 2 bedroom apartment in a great location. It is within walking district of the old area of Porto. It is in a non tourist area and has small stores in the streets nearby … Metro is about a 3 minute walk and is very good.
The apartment is spacious, well furnished and comfortable . It has all the amenities of a home. The owner Pedro was more than helpful on many occasions.
We stayed 3 weeks and hope to return.
Definitely recommend this apartment for a vacation.
Just a very nice simple appartment with everything you need for holydays. Nice balcony with a interessting courtyard, good kitchen with enough equipment. Cosy furnitures to chill after a long day in the city. 10 min walk to the center and the owner is also very uncomplicated and friendly... what else you need!?
Pedro was a welcoming and attentive host, very quick to respond when we needed something.
The apartment is worth every penny. Funky layout, safe neighbourhood, everything you need in the kitchen, comfortable sofas, sweet little terrace, plenty of space for your clothes.
It's incredibly close to a metro station - maybe a 2 minute walk. Easy downhill walk into the centre of the old town.
Highly recommended bargain place to stay.
Our stay at this apartment felt like home. It's well-equipped with all the household bits and pieces, kept clean and the bed's really comfortable. We received a complimentary bottle of porto - a nice gesture from our fantastic host. The apartment is in a great location - it's away from the hustle and bustle of the strict centre but getting to the main attractions of the city is not a problem and takes about 10 minutes by metro. Metro station's almost on the doorstep. I strongly recommend. Thanks Pedro!
