“Fantastic Weekend in Top Flat Porto”
Reviewed 18 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is a gorgeous apartment in a beautiful city.
The owner was really helpful and always available and even arranged for a family member to take us to the airport when a sudden taxi strike was called.
Everything is within walking distance but be prepared for lots of steep hills!

“Stylish holiday”
Reviewed 12 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My partner & I stayed in the second floor apartment and were greeted warmly on our late night arrival with stunning views from the balcony and a spotless, stylish apartment. Porto is fantastic! Friendly people, so much to see and do! We recommend walking the length of the river from apartment to coast, taking funicular up the hill, walk over bridge, cable car down to port lodges. If budget stretches, go in helicopter over river and cities(hire on walk to coast). Visit Grahams lodge up the hill for a tour and tasting, book lunch, you'll love it!!!

“A great apartment conveniently situated in the old town with fabulous views over the Douro River.”
Reviewed 5 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

person found this review helpful

The apartment is large, well equipped and scrupulously cleaned / maintained. It is conveniently situated within the old town with all places of interest within walking distance and has fabulous views over the Douro to Gaia. Patricia made the booking and arrival arrangements very easy. These included arranging for a taxi from the airport. On arrival we were met by Monica who gave us a detailed tour of the accommodation and so much information about Porto and the surrounding area that we were spoilt for choice about where to go, what to see and where to eat. They are genuinely interested in you enjoying your time in Porto.

We thoroughly recommend Top Flat to which we would definitely return.

“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 5 February 2016 for a stay in November 2015

people found this review helpful

We stayed in the 1 bed flat on the top floor for a short break in Porto and it was absolutely wonderful. The flat is well laid out, and with two of us, was very spacious with a living/kitchen area facing out on to the river, and a separate double bedroom and adjacent shower room. There is a small balcony area with a table and chairs – ideal for a relaxing drink watching the sun go down over the Douro and the signs coming on at the port lodges on the opposite bank. We brought back lots of goodies one day and enjoyed a sunny lunch sitting there.

Nothing was too much trouble for Patricia and Monica. They were happy to accommodate an early check-in as our flight landed at around 10 in the morning, and arranged a taxi to collect us from the airport and take us straight to the flat, and our return as well. Monica was there to greet us and spent so much time describing the layout of the city and giving us lots of “local” tips for places to visit, restaurants and bars, and how to get around (on foot!). This included the restaurants O Caracas and Traca in Porto; Dom Peixe out on the coast at Matosinhos (used the vintage tram and bus to get there) where we had a great lunch – fresh sardines on the barbecue and red wine; not forgetting Nata for the custard tarts.

At first the road outside seems quite steep but after a day it doesn’t seem so steep. There is a small local bar with outside tables overlooking Virtudes Municipal Gardens just up the street; also nearby the “7 Wonders” on Rua de Taipas and in Largo de Sao Domingos (the square at the bottom of Flores) the Buffete San Domingo serves huge gin and tonics and glasses of wine, for not a lot of money – also great for people watching.

We loved out first time in Porto and would definitely return, and definitely stay at Top Flat too.

“Oporto river view apartment near to Word of Discoveries”

person found this review helpful

Huge, clean an cosy apartment, 5 minutes from the city center. Very helpful hosts. You can find very good restaurants very near to the apartment, like Caracas. The laundry is on the next street, you can buy food in the nearest minimarket. You do not need a rental car. It is 15 minutes by foot to Vila Gaia. The technical Museum and musem Word of Discoveries is very near, maybe 3 minutes by foot. Our children loved it.
