“An apartment situated in a prime position with a great host!”
Reviewed 10 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We might have only stayed for four nights but because of a fantastic host we were able to take full advantage of the time we had. Cristina picked us up from the airport gave us a brief overview of Porto and then took the time, back at the apartment, to give us great advice on where to go, what to eat and how to get around. The apartment is situated with an excellent view of the river and was in walking distance of many of the sights. (It is very hilly so be prepared with good shoes!!) We tried some typical Portuguese food based on Cristina's recommendation and we also visited places outside Porto which were well worth a visit. The apartment was comfortable and had everything you needed in it. We had a fantastic time. A big thank you to Cristina for being a great host!!

“Comfortable apartment with river views and excellent host”
Reviewed 1 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Cristina made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. She sat down with us and went over the map giving us suggestions of what to do and see and places to eat. She booked us a table at the Postigo do Carvao restaurant for our first night which we really appreciated as we were tired after travelling and didn't want to go far.. Although the restaurant was busy we found the staff friendly, good service, nice food & wine and excellent value so we even went back on our last night. We found the apartment bright, ,spacious and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and it was quiet during our stay. Although the bed is very low we found the mattress and pillows comfortable. There is a large TV with lots of channels in various languages including English. We did find there was only enough hot for one shower before letting it heat again but this did not cause us a problem. Bus & tram stops and only a few steps away or you can enjoy walking the many hilly streets that Porto has to offer. Thank you again Cristina for providing a lovely apartment and for all your help & advise.

“Excellent stay in Porto”
Reviewed 16 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

An excellent apartment with views over the river. The owners description is completely justified. In fact the photos of the apartment do not do it justice as it is both bigger and lighter than the photos suggest. The owner is extremely helpful and gave us a lot of good advice on where to go and what to do. Having a large car park directly opposite the apartment was extremely useful as car parking space can be a problem.

Access to the restaurants and the various riverside facilities are only a 5 minute walk away.

One word of caution! The apartment is on the second floor and the stairs are very steep. This is only to be expected with an old house but anybody with mobility problems could have difficulties. The owner was very helpful in transferring our luggage from our rental car in the car park and helping to carry it up the stairs.

“At home in Porto”
Reviewed 10 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We had a wonderful few days in the centre of Porto. It was our first time in Portugal, and it was an ideal introduction!
Hotels are great for business trips, but much more enjoyable to stay in someone's place - a clean, quiet, (except for Saturday night!) and cool apartment in an excellent town centre location. We felt at home as soon as Cristina met us at the airport and gave us her views on what to see, where to eat and how to get around the city.
Porto has it all - city life, markets, river, boats, beaches, historic buildings, art and music... not to mention the excellent fish cuisine and Portuguese wines.
We will definitely return to Portugal and see some more.

Liked least: The maps of Porto were indicative rather than accurate! Needed some interpreting....

If you want to see Porto and it's surroundings without need of a car, this is the place. It is a short walk away from Sao Francisco and the Bolsa as well as the Ribeira waterfront. View the the port cellars of Vila Nova de Gaia from your window. Bus and tram stops are steps away as are Douro River tour docks. Great restaurants abound nearby as do grocery shops for stocking the apartment. The apartment itself is clean and well appointed. Cristina, the owner, was very attentive and responsive to our needs. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Porto and Cristina and her apartment were a major factor in that.
