“Close to road and river”
Reviewed 8 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We have just recently returned from Porto and stayed in these apartments.
The apartments are very clean and well equipped. I have to point out that the washing machine did not work though. There are plenty of towels supplied but inadequate bedding as we only had the one sheet all week.
The apartment is in a good spot for the Ribeira, 10 minute walk. If you hire bikes (2 minute walk from apartment) you can ride to the beach which takes about 20 minutes. The night life in the city is about 20 minute walk with lots of different ways to go.
Downside of the apartment is that it is very close to to the road and trams which can be a bit noisy. It took us 3 days to get used to the noise of the traffic.
Miguel is very helpful and will give you a lot of advise on where to eat and visit.
Our favourite restaurant was to the right as you came out of the building. About 5 minutes walk .

Unfortunately, we spend just 2 days/1 night in this apartment which is absolutely perfect for a weekend trip to porto. the owner is very helpful and friendly, the apartment is clean and full refurbished and you can find everything you need (like higiene products, towels, bedlinen and a bottle of wine ;) !). Absolutely recommendable!

“Good location, reasonable price, gerat host”

Booked at the last minute, as our previous arrangement fell apart while we were ready to depart from Chicago!
The experience turned out to mixed.
The host was very nice, came with keys on the short 20 min notice,
gave us all the explanations and instructions.
Location is safe, could park the car right under our windows, but it was a bit tricky
for the very narrow driveway :)
Location is
15 min walking distance from the Supermarket
1 min from the Hop-on-Hop-off bus stop (direction to the center)
10 min walk to the river promenade
All appliances were new except washing machine.
The circuit breakers could not handle all powerful appliances at once (you had to choose which ones you need at the time :) ). Glad I have electrical engineering degree, so when the lights went off, I quickly figured out where the breakers were (not so trivial, as the look different in Europe :) ), and what the problem it was.
The only real inconvenience was the street traffic noise, that was non stop the entire night!
We needed some improvised earplugs to fight the noise.
Otherwise good value for the prize.
And the host is great !

I have to admit that this place and the city amazed me. It's very well located, you have a bus directed to the beach and you can go to ribeira and downtown easily by foot. Supermarkets are nearby. The kitchen is good, with everything and the accomodations are very well preserved. The place is very cozy and the staff is very nice and welcoming. I seriously advise people to think about staying here. You can go in and out all day and that is very handfull.

“Great Oporto experiente, worth every scent!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Its everything you read and more. Perfect Palace to stay if you really want to get to know Porto. It even hás a bus stop to take you directly to the beach. Close enough to down town so you can hang at night. You havê bike rentals close to the apartment and in 10m walking you will be in the caves from Porto wine in Vila Nova de Gaia on the otherside of the tiver. Its a bónus you can get to try great restaurantes at a 10m walking radius. Also, if you love photography you havê such great spots nearby to take amazing photos. The owners are very nice and you get a personalized stay for a couple of Bucks.

Nice apartment, with very good overall conditions, clean, organized with good daylight.
The location is the ideal to become a owner of the Porto's heart city, just over the river.
The staff is excellent.
