First class apartment in an excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 days in Porto staying in Rui's apartment.

Firstly I must say what a friendly, helpful guy Rui is. Full of good advice for our stay and only too pleased to help should we have any problems. He lives in the same apartment block, so is easy to contact if needed.

We arrived early in Porto and Rui was happy for us to leave the bags at the apartment in the morning before it was cleaned and serviced, and we checked in proper later in the day. This was a real help.

The location was perfect for us. Around 150m from the Boavista Rotunda, where buses are frquent to all parts of Porto and the coast (15-20 minutes straight west down Av. da Boavista). Only another 200m to Casa da Musica metro station, for transport to and from the airport (20 minutes direct - no line change) and cheap travel all around Porto and surrounding areas. Buy an Andante card at the airport tourist office. 72 hours unlimited travel on metro, buses and local trains, for 15 euros. It takes all the hassle out of using public transport.

Although the apartment is close to major transport links and the busy rotunda, the apartment is on a quieter road and is well sound-proofed. The area feels very safe.

The apartment itself does not disappoint. It is on the fifth floor and reached by a lift. Simply and stylishly furnished and very well equipped. We wanted for nothing. The photographs show it how it is, and spotlessly clean.

The fruit, biscuits, juice and water waiting for us on arrival were a lovely touch and very much appreciated.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Rui's apartment and sincerely hope to return in the near future.

Muito obrigado,

Michael and Angela

Appartement à recommander !!

  • 5 of 5

Correspond parfaitement à la description (idéal pour 2 adultes et 2 enfants); est à 5 mn du centre historique de Porto par métro tout proche ; arrivant en voiture, Rui Rouxinol nous a mis à disposition un garage en sous-sol ; il a été très attentif et nous a donné plein de conseils ; Porto nous a charmé ; nous recommandons donc vivement !

Très bonne location à PORTO

  • 5 of 5

Appartement agréable, propre, bien équipé et situé à proximité d'une station de métro. Le logement est à quelques minutes du centre historique. La place de parking souterrain est très pratique.

Monsieur ROUXINOL est particulièrement accueillant et disponible, il a pris le temps de nous conseiller de manière judicieuse les sites à visiter, nous le remercions encore.

Ótima estadia!

  • 5 of 5

Posso dizer que eu e meu marido tivemos uma excelente estadia! Possui tudo que é necessário para um curto período, inclusive secador e ferro para roupas, que nos foi muito útil pois ficamos por um período relativamente grande. Senhor Rui é uma excelente pessoa, muito prestativo, nos ajudou em todos os momentos e nos deixou muito a vontade em seu imóvel! Super recomendo!
