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!

Grand confort, superbe vue, près de tout

  • 5 of 5

C'est un vaste appartement, bien pourvu de toutes les commodités possibles. Comme il donne sur un parc et fait le coin de la bâtisse, on y a une vue superbe. Le site est idéal, près du Douro, des quais, du pont, des restaurants, de la gare. Tout peut se faire à pied.

Les services de l'agence qui s'en occupe sont parfaits.

Il faut peut-être prévoir de bons bouchons pour les oreilles si vous souhaitez dormir les fenêtres ouvertes, à cause de la circulation automobile. Mais c'est un petit détail, car on ne peut qu'être très heureux dans un pareil endroit.

Bref, on vous le recommande vivement.

Super location!

  • 5 of 5

3rd floor unit, with lift, feels bigger then the 75m 2. Spacious kitchen & dining area is not reflected in the living area (1 chair and very uncomfortable sleeper sofa) bedroom and bath size are very good. Lots of light with 5 windows in the kitchen/living space. Best location and views with everything within walking distance in the old town. 1 block to a good market, many restaurants and shops and transportation at your doorstep...but walkability is the best...hilly, but easy.

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived very late following a flight cancellation and lost luggage. After travelling for 40 hours we were relieved to be greeted warmly at the apartment. A hot shower and into a comfortable bed for a great night's sleep. All reviews accurately convey the ammenities and location of the apartment. It was warm which when you travel in winter is very important. The staff were incredibly kind and willing to help during our 5 day stay as we struggled to locate our luggage. Would I recommend this apartment? Absolutely. Would I stay here again? Without hesitation.

Amazing views, wonderful apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights just before Christmas in this beautiful apartment, which is well-equipped and comfortable. It has gorgeous windows with views of the plaza and the river (which is a block away), and is close to great restaurants and sites. We were late arriving and our host kindly waited for us, and helped us receive our suitcase the next day, which the airline had lost. We had cafe com leite each morning sitting outside in the sun at the nearby Buffete San Domingos (Largo San Domingos 59). We also enjoyed meals at Caldeireros (tapas), Brasao Cervejaria, and Cantinho do Avillez. This is a great apartment and we wished we could have stayed longer.
