Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4, 1 sofa bed

This apartment has 75m2 floor and is composed of a spacious living room divided into 2 areas, the dining area with capacity for up to 6 people and the lounge area, with one sofa bed, a large fully fitted kitchen with all modern conveniences, the bathroom benefits from full modernization and one bedroom (double bed).

One of the best advantages, though, is its location. It’s 5-10 min walk from most of the city´s tourist attractions and sights. Thus, you cross the road and have the tourism information, in front you have two of main monuments of Porto: the São Francisco Church and Palácio da Bolsa (Stock-Exchange Palace). 50 meters away you’ll find the boat tours to do a cruise in the river Douro and 5 min walk you find the cellars of Oporto wine, the main square or the train and metro station. Very closely too, you'll find the congress center (Alfândega)

In short, this is a fantastic apartment with a central location - ideal for sight-seeing, shopping or business traveler.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This apartment gives you the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of old Porto, just one block up from the riverside... you will feel you are really "living in the neighborhood." There is an abundance of light from the many windows overlooking cobble-stoned streets, the park across the street, nearby shops, sidewalk restaurants, views of and across the river, and the Hop-on Hop-off bus just outside, around the corner. From our initial inquiry as to availability right through our departure, everything went just the way we wanted and hoped it would. The owner was most helpful with pre-arrival information; when we arrived the property manager was very detailed in explaining how everything worked; the apartment is modern, (it looks almost new tho the building itself is quite old) it is very well appointed, very clean, the bed comfortable, the shower hot... what more is there to be said. We always measure our level of satisfaction by asking ourselves "Would we do this again?" and here our answer is an unqualified, enthusiastic:"YES"... seven nights was many nights too few! By the way, we highly recommend this location as a prime spot from which to join the celebration of Porto's São Jão Festival in late June - we watched "St. John's Fire" (and the crowds below) from our third story windows... quite spectacular!

Ideal location close to the river

  • 4 of 5

Spent 3 nights in this pleasant & clean apartment. It is well located within easy walking distance of all the main attractions.

Also as it is close to river and the bridge it is convenient for walking across to Gaia and the Port Houses.

My husband and I fell in love with the location of this cozy apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The location of this Porto apartment was just perfect for the active kind of vacation experience we enjoy. Historic Porto is so walkable (if you are ok with hills!). We felt safe walking around at night, never had a problem finding good places to eat, and enjoyed supporting local shops. Liked that there was an elevator in the apartment building as we had heavy luggage with us. The only drawback to the apartment was the lack of cooking staples (i.e. not stocked with sugar or cooking oil, seasonings, etc.) so we cooked only breakfast there, no dinners.

Delightful, modern apartment in the heart of Porto

  • 5 of 5

This apartment made us wish we had longer to spend in Porto- a week was simply not enough! Everything was true to pictures, and the flat is a generous sized one bedroom. We were walking distance from everything, and the view was stunning. Absolutely recommend!

We loved the spacious apartment and the amazing location!

  • 4 of 5

I didn't give it five stars because it needs a new mattress, a couch that isn't so uncomfortable and a coffeemachine that works.
