Guestbook comments from the owner
We had a wonderful stay in Portugal and the slightly complicated arrival in Porto is part of the joys of holidays abroad. We started in your apartment, great location in this lovely and typical district of Ribeira. Isabelle is very charming and welcomed us warmly on your behalf. Her small race kits for the ambulance were very funny! The bottle of Port was excellent and very nice for us to welcome, thank you very much. The only downside of the apartment is that it feels some moisture but despite this, we have enjoyed so it is well located and is also very functional. A brief note of almost perfect stay in every way! Thank you very much again and when I return to Porto, be sure that I'll let you know.

PERFECT LOCATION, ALL NECESSITIES, POOR LIGHT

  • 3 of 5
The apartment has everything you need and the location could not be better, a block away from the water and walking distance to most major sights and plenty of restaurants. However, the photo in the ad indicated a view of the street with the river in the background, but no such windows exist in this apartment - all of them come out into an interior shaft. You certainly don't see any Porto until you leave the building.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments and are happy that you enjoyed the location and amenities of our apartment. The photos in the property ad should not be deceiving and the one showing a view to the river is named "Street view to Douro river". In the property description you can read "The apartment is on the 2nd floor rear of a well maintained historic building, which makes it very silent even in the most animated part of the city."

NON HA TITOLO

  • 1 of 5
E' una catacomba non una casa.
Siamo arrivati di sera ,quindi il buoi alle 2 "finestre " era normale ,ma la mattina era la stessa cosa .
Il cattivo odore di chiuso anzi di muffa non era normale .
Tutto umido ,per non dire bagnato ,I muri piangevano ( ho le foto dell'appartamento).Il bagno con la finestra, sulla scala della palazzina ,sigillata.
Non siamo potuti andare via ,perché la signora aveva voluto tutti i soldi per i giorni ,più la cauzione.
Ecco l'affascinante confortevole appartamento .
L'unica cosa vera è la posizione ,il bellissimo centro storico di Porto.

Owner's Response: I appreciate your feedback and wish you had contacted me during your stay. We would have found a solution, such as refunding and helping you find another lodging.
My apartment is located in the rear of a very, very old building, classified as UNESCO world heritage. The stone walls of the building need renovation. Sometimes when it rains a lot, the internal walls get a bit wet, but they usually dry fast, overnight.
I have recently repaint the apartment and installed a system to renew the air and clear the smell of moisture. I will pursue other improvements that guarantee my guests have a comfortable stay.
I am very sorry you did not have a good experience in my apartment and it comforts me that you keep at least a good souvenir of the city. Thank you.
