“"Perfection in Porto"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

We have just spent the most amazing 5 days in Porto at the Ribeira Apartments. The apartments are perfect as is the location, right in the "heat and soul" of Porto with restaurants and port wine lodges in abundance! The attention to detail from Anabella, the owner and Joana who met us when we arrived was exceptional. There is absolutely no question if we go back to Porto we would stay at the Ribeira Apartments.

Great location, very good service, clean and well-furnished accommodation and all at a great price. We can't say enough good things about our apartment, were we stayed for three nights. If we travel back to Porto, we'll stay here again.

The apartment where we stayed was small but perfectly
furnished, class-designed and comfortable.
The living room window overlooking the river and has a gorgeous
view.
When we arrived we found a bottle of Porto wine on the table, toast, butter, jam, coffee and tea for the breakfast as a gift.
Location is great, and there's plenty of
restaurants, bars and market.
I higly recommend staying here.

From the moment that we arrived at the apartment we felt welcome. Patricia and Anabela (the owner) are such amazing people and were very helpful. We have no problem with the stairs as they helped us with our luggage. The apartment is in the center of the lively Ribeira with lost of little restaurants everywhere. The view from the balcony is beautiful. The decor of the apartment and the cleanliness is excellent. I will certainly stay here again for our next visit to Porto.

Taking a few days in Porto to explore the city, Ribeira apartment IV provided us with a fantastic location, close to all that we wanted to see. The apartment combined modern comfortable furnishings in a traditional and characterful building. The great service that we received from Anabela made everything from booking to convenient transfer run very smoothly, and her insightful local advice was a big help too. Highly recommended as a base in Porto.

“There's nothing more Portuguese than saudade. The word doesn’t even have a direct translation into English.Saudade it's when you miss something. But it’s much deeper than that. It's the unattainable, the untouchable. Or just the feeling of nostalgia of past moments and happy days...Saudade is what Iam feeling for Ribeira Apartments and its view to the river,for the beauty of Porto and the sweetheart that's called Anabela (the owner).

Extraordinary location = the best you can get in Porto. View on the river
and the bridge. Super enthousiastic and friendly host (thank you Anabela).
You will find all you need for you first (2) breakfasts in the apartment at
your arrival. And a complimentary bottle of port wine. The apartment itself
is modern and luxurious. We stayed at many places but this is top!"
