Great location, good place to stay
This apartment is in an excellent location. It’s very conveniently located but a bit out of the noise and bustle of the centre. For us, the balcony made the difference between a good holiday and a fantastic one. Mario was very responsive and he picked us up from the airport which was a real bonus as we arrived in the evening. All in all we would recommend this apartment.
Very considerate host, very comfortable, good location
Thank you John for your kind review.
I´m so glad you´ve enjoyed your staying.
Great views of the Douro River and excellent location
We spent 2 weeks in this apartment and very much enjoyed our stay. It's location was perfect for us, slightly outside the maddening throng but a pleasant 10 minute walk to the characteristic centre of Porto and the Louis 1 bridge which accesses the Port wine houses. For those not wanting the walk or travelling further, the tram and bus both stop very close by. The apartment is set I a lovely area with many local bars and resturants that are a few minutes walk away and worth visiting. Màrio kindy picked us up from the airport and gave us some info on the area we we found very useful, especially where to find freshly cooked fish.
The views of the river from the balcony were superb and we spent many an evening there enjoying the view. The stairs may be a bit of an issue for those less able but Porto is built on a hill so walking and climbing becomes second nature
All in all a very enjoyable stay and we would not hesitate to recommend
Perfect apartment, perfect location
The apartment was ideal for the two of us, and the front balcony was a real treat since we were extremely lucky with the weather. It was lovely to relax outside in the sun and watch the activity of the boats on the river. Easy walking distance to the restaurants along the river, and to the places of interest in the city, although as previous reviewers have commented, it is very hilly as you walk away from the river into the heart of the city.
A good sized supermarket is a 10 minute walk away along the river (so no climbs). The tram stops pretty much outside the apartment and takes you to the coast, although the tram was busy and we had to catch it at the start of the line.
The port house tours across the river are well worth a visit, and an easy walk across the bridge. We did Taylor's, and spent a very interesting couple of hours on their tour followed over course by the sampling.
Finally, Mario is a great host who really went out of his way to make us very welcome. We can definitely recommend his apartment and wouldn't hesitate to use it again if we return to Porto.
Great Location with Accommodating Host
Apt is small but efficient and comfortable with lovely deck to relax upon. You do have to be fit to get to apt since is on 4th flr of walk up building. Location just along river, with morning view that is postcard perfect. Easy walk to explore city but remember Porto is very hilly but that's part of its charm. We stay here again.
I´m glad you´ve enjoyed your staying.
Thank you for your kind comment.
Hope there might be a next time.
Beautiful views of Douro, great location.
Close to town center, walking distance to all sights. Tram, bus 500 right in front of house. Modern interior. The front and rear terraces are great to sit and enjoy coffee/breakfast in the morning and port in the evening.
Mario was a good host, picking us up at the train station and bringing us home.
Apt is at the 4th floor but it's ok. I am 60 and would stay here again.
Apartment located opposite the River Douro, in the historic area a few meters from typical area of Ribeira and its restaurants. Accessibility walk to all the monuments, museums and other sights of the city. Also across the river the famous cellars of Porto wine does not exempt a visit.
