Perfect apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was ideal for the two of us, and the front balcony was a real treat since we were extremely lucky with the weather. It was lovely to relax outside in the sun and watch the activity of the boats on the river. Easy walking distance to the restaurants along the river, and to the places of interest in the city, although as previous reviewers have commented, it is very hilly as you walk away from the river into the heart of the city.

A good sized supermarket is a 10 minute walk away along the river (so no climbs). The tram stops pretty much outside the apartment and takes you to the coast, although the tram was busy and we had to catch it at the start of the line.

The port house tours across the river are well worth a visit, and an easy walk across the bridge. We did Taylor's, and spent a very interesting couple of hours on their tour followed over course by the sampling.

Finally, Mario is a great host who really went out of his way to make us very welcome. We can definitely recommend his apartment and wouldn't hesitate to use it again if we return to Porto.

Great Location with Accommodating Host

  • 5 of 5

Apt is small but efficient and comfortable with lovely deck to relax upon. You do have to be fit to get to apt since is on 4th flr of walk up building. Location just along river, with morning view that is postcard perfect. Easy walk to explore city but remember Porto is very hilly but that's part of its charm. We stay here again.

Beautiful views of Douro, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Close to town center, walking distance to all sights. Tram, bus 500 right in front of house. Modern interior. The front and rear terraces are great to sit and enjoy coffee/breakfast in the morning and port in the evening.

Mario was a good host, picking us up at the train station and bringing us home.

Apt is at the 4th floor but it's ok. I am 60 and would stay here again.

It was perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. As noted in the other review, Mario was great--picked us up from the train station and brought us directly to the apartment--when the driveway in front was blocked, he proceeded to give a tour of the city--down to the beaches and back! He also arranged for us to store our bike rentals, which was really nice. Porto is wonderful, so historical and full of beautiful surprises at every turn. The apartment was close to everything, the view morning and night was beautiful, and the apartment lovely and very accommodating. No complaints. We really had fun renting bikes for two days and riding to the beach on the Porto side and then crossing on the little boat/ferry and riding to and swimming at the beautiful beaches on the Villa Nova De Gaia side. The six bridges boat tour was also quite nice. Great food, great people and a great time. We would stay here again, if every the opportunity arose.

Super Aufenthalt

  • 4 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentrumsnah und bietet für 2 Personen tolle Möglichkeiten, die Stadt zu erkunden. Die Aussicht vom Balkon ist toll. Direkt vor der Haustür fahren zentrale Buslinien. Vorne ist abends während der Rush Hour viel Verkehr; danach wird es ruhig. Das Schlafzimmer geht nach hinten raus und ist sehr ruhig. Einen eigenen Parkplatz konnten wir sehr gut direkt auf der anderen Straßenseite finden. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung ist angemessen und wie beschrieben. Der Vermieter war sehr hilfreich und zuverlässig!

Un apartamento agradable en una ubicación perfecta

  • 4 of 5

El apartamento esta muy bien ubicado y es muy agradable, la zona es muy tranquila, las vistas al rio duero se agradecen.

Cosas para mejorar:

-los utensilios de cocina son un poco escasos, no hay tostador,exprimidor....

-la potencia de luz es demasiado baja pues enseguida salta el automatico.

-el mueble de debajo del lavabo esta muy roñoso.

De todas formas volvería a ese apartamento.
