Location can't be better!
We were all over Porto, and this apartment has to be the best location. Close to everything. Right on the square with 3 or 4 historical sights and around the corner from the main riverfront area. Large apartment. Good size for my wife and daughter. Views from 2 sides (4 balconies) were incredible! The entire process with Marc was great.
The apartment is in a great location in historic Porto near many sites. For the most part, the apartment is lovely. However, it's advertised as sleeping 6 and there really is no pull out couch. There is a sectional that my daughter slept on but there were no pillow cases and I found the sheets in a cupboard myself because the woman who let us in the apartment didn't know where the extra bedding was. Also she was over half an hour late to let us into the apartment. There were a few things like the towel bar in the upstairs bedroom and the shower that were repaired with duct tape. We barely were in the apartment so didn't really do anything in it other than sleep.
The location and views are spectacular.
The views from the upstairs balcony are some of the best in the city. It was very hot in Porto and the A/C worked great both upstairs and on the main floor. Very comfortable and spacious apartment. The location is perfect 1 block to the river front, parking lot across the street under the park, a little expensive but pretty convenient. Great restaurants everywhere. We walked to everything except when we took the water taxi across the river to visit the Port lodges.
The location was perfect. Close to everything. The view was amazing.
Overall our stay in the unit was good. The unit lacked some basic amenities, for example no soap, no shampoo, part rolls of toilet paper and one bath / one hand towels per person for 4 days, These simple additions would have made our stay a little more comfortable.
Thanks for your comments.
We do provide basic amenities, towels can be exchanged by request, just a matter of communication. We will improve next time.
Location is fantastic
The location of this property is wonderful. We've never been to Porto before so we weren't sure on where to stay. Once we arrived at this apartment we realized we made a great choice. It is on a busy street, but cafe's and just about everything you need are minutes away. The river is either out the door to your left (3 min) or to your right and right (3 min), which offers many options for entertainment.
About the property itself:
Pros: as mentioned the location. It is very clean and is almost exactly like the pictures show. Nice living room area and kitchen. Both bedrooms were very spacious w/their private bathrooms. All the rooms have a small balcony to step outside and watch the bustle of Porto or the park across the street. Upstairs bedroom has a large terrace. Both bedrooms have air conditioning. It was 88 in early May, so it was much needed as opening the windows makes it very noisy with the busy street. Building is very quiet but stairs and entry very nicely kept clean.
Cons: there are about 30 steps from street level up to the elevator. Elevator holds 2 ppl with luggage. Upstairs bedroom does not have a door to the beautiful staircase so privacy could be an issue.
Marc was very responsive and very accommodating when our bus had issues and was delayed several hours. Overall a wonderful place to enjoy while resting your tired feet from exploring all day and night. I would highly recommend.
Excellent location and facilities
You are located in the historical center of the city of Oporto, near the Ribeira Area, with fantastic view of the River Douro, Dom Luis Brigde and the whole city historical center of Oporto. You are nearby the Palacio da Bolsa, the Sao Francisco Church and in front you have the Infante Dom Henrique Square.
