Good experience in Porto

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was as described and in an excellent location. We were able to walk everywhere and enjoyed being so close to the pedestrian street of Santa Caterina. Unfortunately we were unable to use the balcony much because it was cool and rainy most of the time. The apartment was clean with comfortable beds. All we really needed for our stay in Porto.

Gute Lage, angenehmes Appartement, freundlicher Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu zweit für vier Tage in Porto zu Gast. Mit unserem Vermieter, Henrique, hatten wir nach der Landung kurzfristig per SMS abgestimmt, wann wir vor Ort sein werden, und er hatte uns noch mitgeteilt, mit welcher S-Bahn wir zu ihm kommen können. Von der S-Bahn-Station bis zum Appartement sind es 5-10 Min. zu laufen. Henrique begrüßte uns freundlich und gab uns Tipps für die Erkundung Portos.

Das Appartement ist für zwei Personen bestens geeignet, sauber, die Küche hinreichend ausgestattet und die Dusche groß genug. Der Balkon geht auf einen Parkplatz hinaus, auf dem aber nur wenige Autos stehen, es ist also sehr ruhig nach hinten hinaus.

Geografisch ist das Haus, in dem sich die Wohnung befindet, an einer typisch anmutenden Verkehrsstraße Portos gelegen. Vom Verkehr hört man allerdings wenig, weil das Appartement im hinteren Teil des Gebäudes liegt. In etwa 20-25 Minuten gelangt man von hier aus zur Ponte Dom Louis, das ist die wunderbare zweigeschossige Eisenbrücke, die ein Schüler und Mitarbeiter Gustave Eiffels entworfen hat - Théophile Seyrig.

Kurz & gut: Für uns war es ein ideales Quartier mit einem immer ansprechbaren, freundlichen Eigentümer.

Bonne situation géographique

  • 4 of 5

Appartement pour 2 en RDC, très bien situé. Propre et bien agencé. A 3 mm à pieds de la station Bolhao. Propriétaire sympathique.

Attention si vous venez en hiver, demander à Henerique où se trouve le disjoncteur.

Vous pourriez avoir des surprises, si vous branchez trop d’appareils en même temps
