Fantastic flat in a wonderful location. We recommend Henrique’s flat completely.
Henrique was a pleasure to deal with. His communication was detailed and he was quick to respond to any of our questions. We loved his flat. It’s perfect for a couple. We highly recommend booking with Henrique.
Great location but very uncomfortable.
Great location but very uncomfortable. My husband and I found the location of this apartment great but that’s pretty much Where it stops. There was absolutely no comfortable place to sit. The small sofa/bed was so low to the floor and so uncomfortable it was hard to enjoy it during our eight day stay. The table only had stools. Chairs would have been nice as would a footstool or higher comfortable sofa. there was absolutely no place to set your drink as there was not a single side table or coffee table. There were no lamps except for one small one in the bedroom. So if you wanted anything other than overhead lighting you were in the dark. The balcony was strictly an overlook and a place to get fresh air don’t plan to sit there and enjoy your morning coffee or a glass of wine. It does look directly at the parking lot. The pots and pans were minimal and of not good quality. Glasses were all miss matched and not very inviting. There also is not an oven only a microwave. The frypan was Teflon and all scratched and would not be something you would want to cook in. The owner had left eggs from the previous guest in the refrigerator and who knows how Long they had been there. The hot water tank had been unplugged so when we got ready to take showers in the morning we had no hot water after our long travel. Also a bucket of dirty water had been left in the hot water room area. The bathroom had no place to put anything. There was no place to put your shampoo or soap or anything in the shower. There is also only one very hard bed pillow for each bed. For a one or two night stay it would probably be OK but for an extended stay We would not recommend. The owner was very nice and sympathetic but it didn’t change anything. It could be a wonderful little spot if some attention was paid to creature comforts and nice kitchen items. It could have been a romantic place to stay but instead we kind of dreaded coming back at the end of the day.
The apartment was perfect for our stay in Porto. The location was great for sight seeing, shopping and dining Henrique was a gracious host and the space was clean and comfortable - we would definitely stay there again!
Thank you very much for your stay
adequate. Close to downtown
Balcony overlooked a parking lot. Would have been nice if a parking spot was available. Beds and pillows hard. Shower head kept falling off .
Bathroom ceiling leaked. No comfortable place to sit.
Kitchen amenities old, not desirable for cooking. No clean cloth or sponge for washing up. Terrible coffee pot. A few small improvements would have made a huge difference.
A felt what was described in the add wasn't quite what I had expected.
Parking was expensive . A car is not a good idea.
When you take bad options and you are against, everything it seems and becomes disgusting.
A small apartment in great location
All communications with Henrique were great and Sandra was very welcoming on our arrival.The apartment is very clean and light,close to the Metro and restaurants but is very quiet.We didn’t use the balcony because of the of the heat ,perhaps a fan would be helpful in the future and the window in the bedroom took two of us to open.We always like something reasonable to seat on after a long day and the couch there isn’t.The tap in the kitchen and the shower bracket were loose but I guess that will be rectified shortly and didn’t effect the function.its a good apartment for a short stay.
Lovely apartment in a central location. Good value for money and a great base to explore beautiful Porto!
Thank you for your stay and for your sympathie
