Rua 31 de Janeiro, Porto

Date of Stay 03 May 2016

Jaime met us when we arrived and were very helpful with local attractions, shops, restaurants and historical features. The studio is walking distance to everything - Cais da Ribeira, Sao Bento Station, the D. Luis bridge, Historical buildings. Easy bus trip out to Matosinhos - a must visit for the fish restaurants. Perfect location! More than big enough for the 4 guests that we need to accommodate. Jaime also left us a bottle of wine and a bowl a fruit ... Nice touch !!!

L'endroit parfait / Perfect place

L'appartement est conforta à la description et est situé très idéalement dans la ville: la plupart des endroits intéressant sont à moins de 20 minutes à pieds et la gare ferrovière est à 5 minutes, rendant également accessible la plupart des villes touristiques dans les 100km Autour of Porto. The proprietaire est à l'image des Portugais: gentile, serviable, charmant, et une source d'informations idéales pour optimiser son séjour. Nous avions tout ce qu'il fallait pour un merveilleux séjour en famille (2 enfants) The apartment is perfectly situated in downtown: most of things to visit are less than 20 minutes walking and train station is at 5 minute walking, Allowing to reach easily all other touristic cities in 100km area from Porto. Apartment owner is like Portugese people: kind, charming and available for an endless source of information in order to get the perfect city tour. We had everything for marvelous holidays with family (2 kids)

A wonderful stay in Porto

Date of Stay - 02 April 2016

We thoroughly loved our time in Porto. The apartment is comfortable, bright, welcoming and very spacious for a studio. We walked to most of the sights and the amenities are a few steps away. Jaime, a charming gentleman, cheerfully greeted us and gave us an excellent overview of Porto. We would certainly recommend this property to friends.

The owner was very pleasant, helpful, and no problems checking in / out. He had the baby crib and high chair all set up. The Apt was spacious and in a nice location. It worked well for us.

Just as we hoped for our first trip to Portugal

Perfect for us .comfortable and very central. Lots of information give. Public transport great.

Lovely place

Brilliant location- airport is 20 mins away on the metro then a 5 min walk to the apartment. It has everything you need- I stayed in studio 3 and had a hairdryer, clean towels, dishwasher etc. All clean on arrival. There is air with too- it does get hot in the upstairs loft but if I uleave the aircon with wondows closed it is fine. Location- 3 mins walk to the center whrere you can catch the 500 bus to the beach which is a longer, but more scenic route than others. It costs 2. 30 euros return and is c. 40 mins. Overall 10/10 though!

Downtown Downtown Studio I

We recently stayed for five nights in Jaime's Studio I in downtown Porto. The studio has a great view of street life but it is high enough off the street to be quiet in the evening. It is an amazing central location for touring Porto is one block from Sao Bento train and metro stations. Jaime met us at the studio and gave us great advice on touring Porto, traveling by rail, arranging Taxi's etc. Everything in the studio was perfect and Jaime was even insistent on replacing a light bulb that was out. It was very comfortable for the two of us, clean and neat.


Date of Stay - 24 September 2014

According to the description, nous reviendrons dans cet appartement if the occasion is present. Fonctionnel, charmant, très bien situé, proche du center, il nous à laissé un extrêmement bon souvenir. Propriétaire vraiment charmant aussi. Strongly recommander.

L'appartement est très bien situé, en plein center ville de Porto, ce qui permet de profiter à fond de la ville. Le propriétaire réserve un accueil chaleureux aux locataires, et donne pleins d'idees de sorties et de visites à faire!

Jaime is a great host. Met us on arrival and gave a very good rundown on places to visit, eat, and buy groceries. Studio is very nicely laid out with all the necessities. And is well located to the waterfront, train station and walking plazas. Loved our stay.
