Great location, better servce
Everything was perfect - location, amenities, etc. But the service was above and beyond - my daughter checked in first, very late at night and Ermalinda was still there waiting for her with cake and tea. I hope we get to stay here again!!
Thank you Linda and your beautiful daughter.
Spectacular View & Great Location
You couldn't ask for a more scenic, convenient location, and Ermelinda was extremely nice and accommodating. We stayed in the top apartment. The common space is on the small side and the kitchen is pretty minimal, but who wants to stay in and cook when there's so much amazing food in Porto to be sampled and sights to be explored. We visited in April, before the summer crush of tourists. Two bedrooms face the rather busy street and one overlooks the water and the popular walkway. The windows are solid and closing them and the shutters blocked out a lot of the noise, which wasn't very loud to begin with. There was also a bit of an unpleasant smell in one of the bathrooms and bedroom on the street side, which fortunately we didn't need to use. We encountered this odor in another apartment as well. Apparently running the water may have helped, particularly if there's a bidet involved that's not used a lot, or the bathroom itself isn't used a lot. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Porto and felt lucky to have a comfortable, clean, scenic apartment to call home during our stay.
The building is in front the river and has a little smell.
Thank you Sarah
Wonderful apartment, amazing location and great host!
Ermalinda's apartment was beautifully decorated and located in a perfect spot overlooking the river. Walking distance from the port wine cellars and the bridge, with an amazing view of Porto. Ermalinda left us a cake and a bottle of wine - a very nice touch! She also arranged for a taxi to pick is up at the airport. Lots of restaurants within walking distance. We had a wonderful stay in Porto! Thank you Ermalinda!
Thank you Jennifer and your beautiful family for staying with me.
Awesome View and even better host!
We recently stayed in this apartment for three nights in October. Let me start off by saying that Ermelinda is an awesome host. She is super nice and attentive, she left us a homemade cake and some Port Wine and she was just extremely welcoming and accessible during our stay. The apartment itself is in an awesome location right across the iconic bridge you see in all the pictures. Tons of restaurants and a super short walk to the heart of Porto. In less than 5 minutes you are in the Riviera district of Porto. But there are tons of restaurants on the same street as the apartment and you have all the Port houses there as well. In the interest of helping out a fellow traveler I will say that there is no parking directly on the property but there is a garage pretty much next door where you can leave the car. It is very reasonable only 7 Euros a day. I don't know how it would be in busy season but the garage has 8 floors and tons of available spots. As far as the apartment our only pet peeves were that even though we had three bathrooms, realistically only one person could shower at a time if you wanted to have hot water. We found out the hard way that when one person is showering if someone goes to shower in the other bathroom you take the hot water and someone is left with pretty cold water. So we had to let each other know when we were going to shower so we would be able to have hot water since it was pretty chilly. It was a bit of an inconvenience especially with a large group of people. Other than that it was a very pleasant stay and Ermelinda is a fantastic host.
Thank you Helen
Qualcosa di speciale / Something special
Ermelinda è la migliore host che io abbia incontrato. Oltre ad essere simpatica è accogliente, gentile e disponibile. L'appartamento è pulito e fornito di tutto il necessario, spazioso e comodo. Certo la vista è la parte migliore. Vedere la Ribeira di Porto appena svegliati, al tramonto, di notte è qualcosa che aggiunge valore ad un viaggio in questa splendida città. Noi eravamo 6 cugine e ci siamo trovate veramente bene. Tutte ora vogliamo tornare con la nostra famiglia o con i nostri amici.
Un'altro pregio è la comodità di spostarsi sempre a piedi e visitare sia Porto sia Vila Nova de Gaia con le sue cantine e l'affascinante lungo fiume.
I think that Ermelinda is one of the best hosts I've ever met. She is so friendly, kind and helpful! The apartment was clean and with all you need, it is wide and comfortable.
The best thing is absolutely the view! You can see Porto Ribeira in every moment of the day. I think this view makes your trip unforgettable!
Another plus is the possibility to visit Porto and Vila Nova de Gaia on foot.
We were six cousins and now everyone would go back with their families or their friends.
Thank you Giannina and friends.
