Spotless fabulous apartment in the heart of the seafood capital of Europe!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was absolutely spotless, spacious and modern with excellent WiFi, separate shower and bathrooms, and fabulous views from every window. It's a very short walk from Matosinhos' glorious beaches, and right in the middle of the best street for seafood in Portugal. There are 2 fast lifts, 1 of which opens right next to the apartment door. It couldn't have been better and is so much more comfortable than a standard hotel family room I wondered why I ever bothered with hotels in the first place. The owner, Mr Valentin runs the best restaurants on the street and Celso the agent got the WiFi fixed within the day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone, but I feel I need to just say that the aircon is not working in the 3rd floor flat and doesn't look as though it's going to get fixed any time soon. The owner provided a tower fan and northern Portugal isn't much hotter than a good UK summer anyway, so it didn't bother us. Matosinhos is a fascinating place that's on the 'up' as they say and once you get the hang of how to spend less than £150 in the glorious restaurants every night, you'll love it. You could save a fortune by eating lunch in one of the many friendly patisseries. The local small custard tarts are a must with a coffee. Everyone is friendly and most places are incredibly good value. The small local museums are well worth dropping into if you go for culture, but, aside from the food and the haunting ruined tile fronted villas threaded through the old town, the sea is the main draw. Factor 50 all over on day 1 guys!! Note: the working docks can be seen over the rooftops of the charming old fish wholesalers opposite the flat. If you can't bear any hint of economic activity around you on your holidays Matosinhos may not be for you. It's a working harbour.

Excellent choice and good value

  • 5 of 5

The property looks even better in person than the pictures. We were three adults and one older teenager. Two adults shared the bedroom with the en suite bath. The other adult took the double room while the teen had the alcove in the living room, both sharing the second bathroom. There was a living room / dining room plus kitchen. The apartment was spacious, airy, and very clean. There is also a washer / dryer in unit for use. For Americans not familiar with this type of machine that washes and dries in the same tub it is very easy to use. For most common washing, set preset dial to #13 and push green auto start button. A few hours later your clothes washed and dried.

Since we were visiting relatives, the location in Matsohinos was very good for us. It is truly in the fish market area close to the ocean (visible from thoughout the unit). The smell of grilled fish from the many nearby restaurants was prevalent which we did not mind at all but some may. The number 500 bus is on the corner (about 3€) into downtown Porto. We used Uber a lot and it was 10-15€ each way. If using Uber or taxi, get a business card from the restaurant downstairs and use as pick up and drop off point. It is a much more recognizable address than the apartment address on the side street. The airport is 20 minutes no traffic and costs about 10€ bu Uber or cab. The train station is about 30 minutes with moderate traffic and about 10-15€ by Uber or cab.

The supermarket on the corner is well stocked and very reasonably priced. Their cafe in the market can get you a cup of coffee and pastry from less than 2€ total. There is a very nice bakery Charme four blocks up the street you are on that serves nice omelettes, fresh squeezed on order orange juice, and sandwiches. There are plenty of excellent fish restaurants in the area including the one downstairs which happens to also be run by the owner of the apartment.

There is good wifi and cable tv.

The manager of the unit and owner (downstairs) could not be more pleasant and helpful.

The only thing that may be a drawback for some is even though it is a good kitchen there are not a lot of items to help in the preparation and serving of a full meal. This was not an issue for us as restaurants were in big supply and we bought in the supermarket sandwich material, cheese, fruit, and beverages to supplement in between meals.

We would definitely come back and stay here again.

Buen apartamento y dueño encantador

  • 4 of 5

El apartamento está muy bien, equipado y cómodo, lo peor el sofá cama del salón que es más pequeño que el que aparece en La foto, pero el resto está muy bien, ampli, con buenos armarios, perchas,...Esta muy bien ubicado, a 3 minutos andando del metro y de la playa, pero al encontrarse en el puerto las vistas son feas y sobre todo es muy ruidoso por la mañana por la actividad de la zona y por las gaviotas.

Nosotros hemos estado muy bien a pesar de eso, pero creo importante reseñarlo

Buena situación en Matosinhos

  • 3 of 5

Apartamento en edificio bien construido: cocina, baños, dormitorios y armarios impecables. Lavadora y lavavajillas. Al lado de una calle con los mejores restaurantes de pescado y marisco. Cerca de un supermercado muy bien provisto. Playa excelente a 300 mts. Buenas vistas.

Las fotos de internet no se correspondían con la realidad, principalmente en la sala de estar, lo que resultó algo decepcionante. Comunicamos nuestras observaciones al propietario, quien fue en todo momento muy amable y tomó nota para solventar las deficiencias. En conjunto pasamos una semana muy agradable.
