Enjoy a quality stay in this holiday apartment in Porto, located in its historic center classified World Heritage by UNESCO, 1 minute walking to Douro river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay in Portugal and the slightly complicated arrival in Porto is part of the joys of holidays abroad. We started in your apartment, great location in this lovely and typical district of Ribeira. Isabelle is very charming and welcomed us warmly on your behalf. Her small race kits for the ambulance were very funny! The bottle of Port was excellent and very nice for us to welcome, thank you very much. The only downside of the apartment is that it feels some moisture but despite this, we have enjoyed so it is well located and is also very functional. A brief note of almost perfect stay in every way! Thank you very much again and when I return to Porto, be sure that I'll let you know.

Perfectly located for exploration of the city

  • 3 of 5

The location of the flat is perfect to explore the city, nightlife, shopping, sights are very close or only 10 minutes walk.

The response time for questions is very fast.

The lady who gave us the keys if very friendly and extremly helpful.

The flat is clean and there are enough pots and pans to cook with.

The internet connection is very good.

Personally I had a problem with the dampness of the flat, tried to ventilate the flat by opening windows when at home but the air was always extremely humid

Nice and verry close to the centre and riverside

  • 3 of 5

It was an small but convenient and well designed and well equiped appartment. It is very close to the centre and the Waterfront which is very comfortable . The only disavantage is that it is at the rear of the building with windows facing a very small patio that give just a little bit of daylight and makes the appartment a bit moisty. It is comfortable for a a stay for a couple of days.

Perfect location, all necessities, poor light

  • 3 of 5

The apartment has everything you need and the location could not be better, a block away from the water and walking distance to most major sights and plenty of restaurants. However, the photo in the ad indicated a view of the street with the river in the background, but no such windows exist in this apartment - all of them come out into an interior shaft. You certainly don't see any Porto until you leave the building.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your comments and are happy that you enjoyed the location and amenities of our apartment. The photos in the property ad should not be deceiving and the one showing a view to the river is named "Street view to Douro river". In the property description you can read "The apartment is on the 2nd floor rear of a well maintained historic building, which makes it very silent even in the most animated part of the city."

Porto is famous for its Port wine. Visit one of Porto's most traditional establishments, for a tour and tasting. Porto is so picturesque: with the old wine boats plying the river in front of you, and traditional port lodges behind, the medieval old-town clinging to the opposite bank and the skyline punctured by the Cathedral and numerous churches.
