Look at Me - Studios & Lofts
Ranked #32 of 262 Speciality Lodging in Porto
Reviewed 15 July 2014

Look At Me - Loft & Studios is situated 100m next to Trindade metro station which is directly connected between the airport and downtown Porto. Parking lots in the street are either public, which is free on weekends or sheltered and guarded (opposite for €14/day, cash). You will find a good bakery (closed on Sundays) and a big supermarket with ATM around the corners at Rua da Trindade in less than 2 minutes walking distance. The old house (hard to find, no signs) was completely refurbished/rebuild in the last years and offers several spacious and bright studios with a blue and white décor. The living area has a big flat-screen cable TV, a sofa bed (for 3rd and 4th person) and an equipped kitchenette. The kitchenette, the shower and the toilette makes a square block unit in the middle of the room. There is free WiFi and you have to pay the informative and friendly owner/renter in cash (€). The Douro River is a 20 minutes walk or you can take the metro. The area is central but quite and safe and the house is charming. The only bad thing was the bed, which was really cheap and, for me, was impossible to sleep in. A good mattress on good wood slats would make a big different. Overall, for the prize it was still very good.

Room Tip: As it is an old house, there is no elevator. Choose the studio according your luagage weight...

Clean Apartments centrally located in Porto. Staff extremely friendly. Apartments have modern furniture, but kind of basic. Kitchen equipped with Fridge,dishwashers, stove and microwave. No Clothes washer or dryer, only at a laundry room but was under renovation. Generally had a good experience, BUT it has no elevator, so we had to climb with 5 large luggage 3 floors up...

I'll start by saying my few days here were a positive experience, the apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped.
A kettle, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, fridge...better than I have at home.
The bed was firm, but comfortable. The shower,a quaint cupboard space, was hot and decent pressure.
I loved the way the kitchen could be hidden behind doors.
Wifi worked a treat.
A few down points though, to make it an honest review.
It took me ages to find, due to directions I got off the net...I walked the whole of porto it felt like, for a road that was essentially just across the road from metro.
It's not very well advertised,a small card on the door...I tried several people on the road to find out where it was, and even the guy in so next door said he didn't know!!!
Having an electronic key for main door and apartment for didn't feel safe to me...would everyone's key open my door? A bolt on inside of door would have been appreciated.
I was kept awake all second night by fridge going into overdrive (too tired to have sense to turn down, as could not find off plug). Not fun when right next to your head.
Being sorted now.
Great location though, direct metro from airport, supermarket around the corner...twenty min walk to river, wine cellars etc etc.

Great place and good location. Josè Marìa was a very nice host. We took some time to explain the basics of Porto, transportation, places to eat, visit, etc. The apartment is very nice. big and luminous. It has all the basic things you might need for a few-day stay. We would definitely go there again.

We arrived late at night and that wasn't a problem to our host. We went with our twin babies and without us asking he even got hold of a baby cot for us, very nice gesture. The apartment is small but has all that you may need while on holidays. Very modern with wireless ( a must while abroad) and we were made very confortable and at ease by the Host. Towels,hair drier and sheets provided as well as all the cutlery and cooking equipment. The location couldn't be better as you get the metro from the airport and it's literally 2min from the station where you're supposed to exit. It's located near the town hall and all bars are within walking distance although you can't hear any noise. There is a back garden with fruit trees and you're very welcomed to eat the fruit if you feel like it! We loved our stay there and most likely will stay there again at a next opportunity as we visit Porto every year. Lovely city as well, well worth a visit
