Overview

About the property

1 bedroom, 1 full bathroom, sleeps 4, 1 sofa bed

This apartment has 75m2 floor and is composed of a spacious living room divided into 2 areas, the dining area with capacity for up to 6 people and the lounge area, with one sofa bed, a large fully fitted kitchen with all modern conveniences, the bathroom benefits from full modernization and one bedroom (double bed).

One of the best advantages, though, is its location. It’s 5-10 min walk from most of the city´s tourist attractions and sights. Thus, you cross the road and have the tourism information, in front you have two of main monuments of Porto: the São Francisco Church and Palácio da Bolsa (Stock-Exchange Palace). 50 meters away you’ll find the boat tours to do a cruise in the river Douro and 5 min walk you find the cellars of Oporto wine, the main square or the train and metro station. Very closely too, you'll find the congress center (Alfândega)

In short, this is a fantastic apartment with a central location - ideal for sight-seeing, shopping or business traveler.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This apartment gives you the opportunity to soak up the atmosphere of old Porto, just one block up from the riverside... you will feel you are really "living in the neighborhood." There is an abundance of light from the many windows overlooking cobble-stoned streets, the park across the street, nearby shops, sidewalk restaurants, views of and across the river, and the Hop-on Hop-off bus just outside, around the corner. From our initial inquiry as to availability right through our departure, everything went just the way we wanted and hoped it would. The owner was most helpful with pre-arrival information; when we arrived the property manager was very detailed in explaining how everything worked; the apartment is modern, (it looks almost new tho the building itself is quite old) it is very well appointed, very clean, the bed comfortable, the shower hot... what more is there to be said. We always measure our level of satisfaction by asking ourselves "Would we do this again?" and here our answer is an unqualified, enthusiastic:"YES"... seven nights was many nights too few! By the way, we highly recommend this location as a prime spot from which to join the celebration of Porto's São Jão Festival in late June - we watched "St. John's Fire" (and the crowds below) from our third story windows... quite spectacular!

Great apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was on the top floor with an elevator. Daniella was great to deal with, met us on time and answered texts quickly. We had everything we needed in the apartment for our short stay. We were close to grocery stores, many great resuraunts and walking distance to much of Porto. We hope to be back next again.

OVERALL GREAT CHOICE ON OUR PART

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed Porto and this Douro River apartment in the historic district was for us perfectly located. Large, well equipped one bedroom with two walls of windows overlooking this part of the city as well as the Douro River. Miguel was very helpful and even prebooked our taxi to the train station. Many thanks for the wine Miguel. Would not hesitate to recommend it to others.

Stunning Apartment in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this fabulous apartment in Porto was absolutely faultless! Above and beyond our expectations, nothing more that we could have asked for! The apartment presented beautifully with windows all around and fabulous views down over the square and out to the river. Everything was well cared for and clean, plenty of hot water in the shower, the kitchen was well equipped and the bed was perfectly comfortable. We will definitely choose to stay here again when we next visit Porto!! Thank you so much!

Ideal location close to the river

  • 4 of 5

Spent 3 nights in this pleasant & clean apartment. It is well located within easy walking distance of all the main attractions.

Also as it is close to river and the bridge it is convenient for walking across to Gaia and the Port Houses.

My husband and I fell in love with the location of this cozy apartment.

  • 4 of 5

The location of this Porto apartment was just perfect for the active kind of vacation experience we enjoy. Historic Porto is so walkable (if you are ok with hills!). We felt safe walking around at night, never had a problem finding good places to eat, and enjoyed supporting local shops. Liked that there was an elevator in the apartment building as we had heavy luggage with us. The only drawback to the apartment was the lack of cooking staples (i.e. not stocked with sugar or cooking oil, seasonings, etc.) so we cooked only breakfast there, no dinners.
