We had a great stay here and were impressed the thought put into the details: a bottle of Port and two bottles of water waiting for us; a photo slideshow of the best sights in Porto; maps and tips on where to eat, shop, and sightsee. The recommended Confeitaria de Bolhao is just around the corner for a nice breakfast or lunch, and two sizeable grocery stores are on the other side of the market (basically one street over). Jose was great - responsive even on a Saturday night when we emailed him to book us a last minute taxi for the next morning.
Appartamento bellissimo,curato in tutti i particolari,pulitissimo.
Posizione centrale,comoda per visitare la città.
Josè è stato gentilissimo dandoci tutte le spiegazioni per visitare al meglio la città.
Veramente da consigliare!
The apartments is cozy, modern, clean and very comfortable. The location is convenient for walking around the historical center, and it's just right near the metro station. José is a very hospitable and kind host, and it's good to feel that he really likes what he does. The restoraunt he had recommended served really delicious veal, don't miss it!
We really enjoyed our stay at José's apartment! It is spacious, perfectly equipped, very stylish and in a very good location! José is very friendly and super helpful - he gave us tips where to go (especially he recommended a bakery round the corner which is just awesome!). Really recommendable!
El apartamento perfecto, José María, también. Todos los sitios que nos dijo para comer fueron buenos y a buen precio. Muy bien situado en un barrio muy vivo y con todo a la mano. Muy bien. Repetiría
