Apartment was lovely, a few niggles which needed attention (light fitting in hall, plug on bedside not working), but overall, really good apartment with great facilities, (very comfy bed, complementary coffee and wine was very good quality, large bathroom with good power shower over the bath, fantastic views from the seating at the front of the apartment.)
What sets the place apart the best is the host. Pedro was nothing short of perfect, very polite, gave us a perfect tourist route with the least amount of hills possible with still being able to see everything the beautiful city has to offer.
As a massive football fan, I was trying desperately to get tickets for the final game of the season between Boavista and Benfica, looking online I couldn't find anything anywhere, so I asked Pedro for help, not only did he get us tickets, he got us fantastic seats with a good view of the pitch and the atmosphere was amazing (my girlfriends first football game, and she's now said not her last, result!)
All in all, the man deserves a 5*, our first trip together one to never forget, mainly in thanks to him.
Being this was our first time in Porto we were a little nervous not knowing where to go or stay, especially traveling with 2 toddlers. We couldn't have found a better spot or owner. Pedro was so friendly and helpful and his place is amazing! Perfect location, incredible views, walking distance to many places including Porto's famous Ribeira district. There is also reserved parking across the street which is convenient, considering the parking situation in Porto is limited. We can't wait to come back!
Walking distance to all the major attractions in the old town area. There is a little bit of walking in hilly areas but nothing too extrenuous. The house is quite spacious and has antique furnitures. The view from the living room windows across the river was very nice. I will recommend this apartment without any hesitation.
We arranged with Pedro to pick us up at airport. He was there on time and full of helpful advise. On arrival at the apartment Pedro spent time marking places of interest on a map for us and describing things to see in Porto. The apartment was clean and spacious, With a fabulous terrace overlooking the river and Porto. It was stunning. We had a fabulous long weekend in Porto wandering the winding cobbled streets with plenty of refreshments, the 7bridgrs boat trip, cable car, port lodge tour with tasting, tram to the beach etc. A fabulous city which we intend to return to later this year. The apartment was 5 mins walk down to the river the just another 5 mins across the bridge to old Porto. Loved it.
Pedro was spot on in meeting our needs as we needed to stay one night at the start of the week and another at the end. The apartment is in a prime location with a superb view, easy access to restaurants and the city centre. Pedro is a wealth of knowledge on making the most out of the stay. I highly recommend his place, very reasonably priced and has everything you could want from a stay. We were travelling with two children too, and they loved it also.
