Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 November 2013

Me and my husband stayed in this hotel in October for two nights.When we first saw the street actually it looked like a dangerous place with full of old houses nothing special around _you can't even see the name of the hotel . But when you entered the hotel you think wow! It's like a hidden treasure! Very nice modern decorated room (Namorados)very clean -everything new- a welcoming present (porto wine) and a great view with a nice balcony.After that we realized we are in the very center.Highly recomended!!

My husband and I stayed in the room Cartolina and loved it. The room, and the apartment building as a whole, were modern and very tastefully renovated. And the view was incredible...It was nice to look at the view with the changing light at different times of the day. I loved the neighborhood, which is very centrally located. The area is going through modernization, but at this time, it still retains the traditional feeling of the Porto Baixa. Highly recommended!

Truly amazing views over the whole city with the cathedral as the back-drop. Try sipping your port (it comes as a welcome gift) on the little terrace. Very comfortable room with small but well equipped kitchen - everything for a short stay in beautiful Oporto.
Delightful owner and staff - could not be more helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view and a balcony if one is free.

A cosy, modern, sparklingly clean studio apartment with comfy bed, balcony and simple kitchen. They had thought of everything - washing up liquid, complementary water in the fridge, and a welcome glass of port. The shower was immediately hot and tastefully designed. There is fast internet available and it is right at the heart of the city centre, not far from the main square, 5 mins walk from the train station and close to the area 5 mins up the hill where fine drinking establishments could be found. Make sure that you have the number to call the lady manager or owner on arrival, and have confirmed arrival times before you get to Porto, as the door to the apartments is not clearly marked as Casa dos caldeireiros; in fact it just looks like any other door!

There are great restaurants in the local area, however the river is only a 15 min walk away, and if you don't fancy the walk back up the hill afterwards, catch the funicular for 2 Euros each before midnight and then walk 5 mins back to enjoy the view with a glass of wine and a few Portuguese tidbits. The views are right across to the cathedral and you can also see the other side of the river; the signs for all the port companies stand tall in the distance. A local portuguese 'delicacy' is the 'Francesinha' - a heart attack of a dish, but oh so tasty!

This was the perfect base for our 4-night trip to Porto. The apartment itself is lovely: cosy, clean, very well equipped for self-catering. The location is ideal for exploring the old town as well as the more lively bars and restaurants if so desired. The owner was extremely welcoming and very helpful with restaurant recommendations and any questions we had - we felt very well looked after, and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Highly recommended - we'd love to go back!

What a hidden treasure! Nicely situated in lovely Porto, the appartment was a perfect place for relaxation after a busy day in the city. The owner is very friendly and helpful. His suggestions for restaurants in the vicinity were super. The appartment is well equipped and has a nice, modern atmosphere. When visiting Port, a recommended place to stay.
