Perfect place to stay in Guimarāes!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at Casa Maria II. The location was perfect and the apartment was very light, spacious, clean and well equipped. We loved the balconies overlooking the square where you could watch the world go by, and everything we needed was in easy walking distance. It's hard to fault the apartment which was so comfortable in every way but some constructive suggestions for improvements would include a shelf for soap etc in the shower, a mirror in the bedrooms and more surfaces or places to put or hang things in the bedrooms. Vitório was very attentive and helpful both before and during our stay and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa Maria II as a wonderful place to stay if you are fortunate enough to be visiting Guimarāes.

Beautiful modern unit with everything you could ask for

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the larger 2 bedroom, 2 bath upstairs unit. It was very clean and stocked with everything you could ask for including a full size refrigerator. The owner is very organized and took care of getting our car approved to park in the historic part of the city. Getting the key was easy. Beds were very comfortable and linens were immaculate. The castle and other sites are within walking distance, as are restaurants and stores.

Two words of caution, the floor of showers and the bathrooms are new but extremely slippery. A rubber shower mat would have been welcome. We visited in July and summers in this part of Portugal are HOT! There was no AC, probably because of the building is in the historic center where such units would not be approved. Visit and enjoy this lovely place when temperatures are cooler.

Wonderful location, modern apartment in ancient city center

  • 5 of 5

There is a lot to like about Casa Da Maria, starting with its location inside the old walls. Most sights are in walking distance. A large plaza with numerous cafes and restaurants is 2 minutes away. The apartment is HUGE and modern--maybe too modern with a glass shower but no soap shelf!) The second bedroom is one flight up within the apartment. And remember that this unit is two flights up from the street. TV gets a good selection of channels, you can use the phone for local calls, wi fi works well and the kitchen is reasonably equipped if you plan to bring in food. The tough part for us was parking, which is very restricted and hard to access behind the walls. The owner told me he is working on a solution. If you go--with a car--be sure to get exact directions on what to do with your car.

Muy bien

  • 5 of 5

Excelente ubicación, limpia, moderna y bien decorada. La relación con el anfitrión ha sido fácil y fluída.

Para mi gusto, el único fallo es que no hay jabón en los baños ni ningún tipo de servilleta o papel de cocina.
