Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I spent a very nice journey staying by Joao's place.
    Joao and her friend welcomed me very nicely.
    I recommend Porto and their apartment.The flat was about 5 min walk to the very center, and just a block from the Metro. The room was large and great view, cool common area to hang out and work, and good kitchen for cooking. Definitely I will come back here again next time!!

  • I second everything that has been said about this listing. Wonderful downtown apartment, close to everything. Joao keeps everything neat and is extremely helpful and kind. I wouold certainly return in his apartment whenever I return to Porto.

  • My stay at Formosa was really nice. The flat is comfortable and clean, the rooms quiet and private, the kitchen and bathrooms, spotless.

    The location is great, too. close to the center so you can walk everywhere, in a nice, safe neighborhood with cafes and markets around the corner. And as everyone has said, Joao was a great host.

    All in all a very good experience. If i return to Porto, I will stay at Formosa again.

  • I can really confirm all the good ratings and warmly recommend a stay in the CASA FORMOSA (clean, light, spacious, furnished in the best of taste). Good surrounding (all you need is just around the corner: shops, cafés and the historical site you can reach by walk), a fantastic host (very helpful, giving recommendation, caring for you feeling comfortable in his house an in his town). I really cannot find any reason not to go there!

  • João´s flat was my very first favourised apparment shortly after I signed up on Airbnb and you can say, I only went to Porto to stay at his place. So, after more than 2 years I finally managed to visit Porto and I got not disappointed by staying with him. He is the perfect host and I had a very warm welcome since he takes very good care of his guests. He provides fresh fruits and daily breakfast and gives good advices on places to go so that I felt immediately super homey in Porto. The single room is beautiful, absolutley clean, stylish and cosy like the hole flat itself which is situated just perfectly in the middle of Porto. I highly recommend staying at Joãos places, you will have a wonderful time in Porto!

  • I miss Casa Formosa!!! Yes, it's really so!
    I travel a lot for work and I visit a lot of places but this, in particular, is a place that remains in the heart. Is a beautiful house, very clean and tastefully decorated, the breakfast is great, but it's not all: is the atmosphere that makes the difference. It's comfortable and familiar because it's not just a place for visitors but because is inhabited with love by Joao and his nice friend. They are lovely people in the soul, attentive to you, listening to, and also funny and full of irony...an extraordinary human quality that gives you wish to stay. In fact I'm going back there very soon...;-)

  • I spent two days at Casa Formosa in August and I have to say it was a very pleasant experience. The apartment in general is very clean, my room was tastefully decorated and impeccably clean as well. It is very centrally situated with metro and buses very close. There is a very warm ambiance and the people staying there at the same time seemed to enjoy it immensely as well. Joao is an exceptional host who really goes out of his way to help, advise and make sure that our stay is as perfect as possible. He is an absolute star and I would recommend Casa Formosa without any hesitation whatsoever and if and when I go back to Porto I would certainly consider returning there. Thank you Joao and keep up the good work!

  • João was a really nice host. The apartment had a very friendly atmosphere and is located central. The apartment is clean and very well taken care of. He provides some delicious basics for breakfast, so you can enjoy it on the terrace. João was also very helpful with recommendations about restaurants and also places for good surfing, as we went surfing after our stay. We would definitely come back.
