Overview

Sao Nicolau Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4, 1 sofa bed

This apartment has 75m2 floor and is composed of a spacious living room divided into 2 areas, the dining area with capacity for up to 6 people and the lounge area, with one sofa bed, a large fully fitted kitchen with all modern conveniences, the bathroom benefits from full modernization and one bedroom (double bed).

One of the best advantages, though, is its location. It’s 5-10 min walk from most of the city´s tourist attractions and sights. Thus, you cross the road and have the tourism information, in front you have two of main monuments of Porto: the São Francisco Church and Palácio da Bolsa (Stock-Exchange Palace). 50 meters away you’ll find the boat tours to do a cruise in the river Douro and 5 min walk you find the cellars of Oporto wine, the main square or the train and metro station. Very closely too, you'll find the congress center (Alfândega)

In short, this is a fantastic apartment with a central location - ideal for sight-seeing, shopping or business traveler.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment gives you the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of old Porto, just one block up from the riverside... you will feel you are really "living in the neighborhood." There is an abundance of light from the many windows overlooking cobble-stoned streets, the park across the street, nearby shops, sidewalk restaurants, views of and across the river, and the Hop-on Hop-off bus just outside, around the corner. From our initial inquiry as to availability right through our departure, everything went just the way we wanted and hoped it would. The owner was most helpful with pre-arrival information; when we arrived the property manager was very detailed in explaining how everything worked; the apartment is modern, (it looks almost new tho the building itself is quite old) it is very well appointed, very clean, the bed comfortable, the shower hot... what more is there to be said. We always measure our level of satisfaction by asking ourselves "Would we do this again?" and here our answer is an unqualified, enthusiastic:"YES"... seven nights was many nights too few! By the way, we highly recommend this location as a prime spot from which to join the celebration of Porto's São Jão Festival in late June - we watched "St. John's Fire" (and the crowds below) from our third story windows... quite spectacular!

Very nice place and very nice apartment!

  • 5 of 5

The place was exactly as described in the announcement. The area close by is lovely part of the historical city center of Porto with very nice restaurants and bars within 3-5 minutes walking distance.

Larger supermarkets are about 10 minutes away, although there should be very small stores closer.

An excellent apartment in a fine location

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful surprise to find an elevator to take us up to the apartment! Then we find a well laid-out space with excellent light and everything we need to make our stay enjoyable. As others have noted, this is in a great location, not far from either the river or the center of the city.

The only notes of caution: the city center is up the hill (which is steep). That is the nature of Porto which cannot be avoided, so be prepared. Then, there is no convenient grocery store other than the small neighborhood market. Fresh fish and vegetables are best obtained at the large market in the city center.

Amazingly great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This a wonderful apartment in perfect location. I was pleasantly surprised by how convenient it was to everything including bus stops, tourist locations, the Ribeira (literally across the street), the bridge easily walked across the river to Villa Nova de Gaia. We walked all over Porto from this location.

The apartment was every bit as nice as it looks on the listing and in no way did feel that it was misrepresented. Exactly as described. Also, we were met at the agreed time to get the keys, etc. and were given instructions on how things worked so that went better than expected. Very nice young man took care of the "check-in" for us and we felt very comfortable about the entire transaction.

This apartment is a very good deal and you won't be disappointed.

Beautiful apartment and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in this lovely apartment. It is very modern with every convenience you would ever want and it is very close to major tourist sites. All details were handled professionally and it was a pleasure doing business with Nuno. I would only make the suggestion of a fan in bedroom so the windows could be closed at night to eliminate traffic noise.
