João nous a accueillis à l'appartement et a pris le temps de nous conseiller sur la ville.
L'appartement est conforme aux photos et description, nous nous y sommes très bien sentis !
On est très bien situé dans Porto, proche de tout à pied (commerces, monuments, transports).
La communication s'est faite très facilement pour convenir du check-in.
Everything was allright, thanks.
Appartement parfait et très bien placé. Les propriétaires sont au petit soin pour leurs hôtes. Service de bagagerie super pratique.
The best Bnb we stayed in . Theresa and Jose were very friendly and patient . They allowed us to keep our luggage before we checked in. This is not really an ABNB but a apartment hotel
José and Teresa were very welcoming, and were ready and waiting for us at the apartments. The apartment itself was absolutely fantastic! It's modern, very clean, and very well-equipped (the coffee machine with pods was a welcome site). Teresa in particular was incredibly helpful with hints and tips on what to do in Porto. We loved our stay and will definitely be back.
Tanto José María como Teresa fueron excelentes anfitriones, mantuvimos el contacto antes, durante y después de nuestra estancia. Teresa nos recibió amablemente en el apartamento, nos dejó información sobre la ciudad, mapas, sitios donde desayunar y cenar (llegamos bastante tarde a Oporto y había pocos locales abiertos) y nos explicó que habían desarrollado una App totalmente gratis con la que moverse por la ciudad. Asimismo, nos solucionaron varias dudas sobre cómo viajar en Portugal por autopistas con Vía Verde. Muchas gracias!
El apartamento estaba muy bien decorado y súper limpio. Pudimos degustar una botella de Oporto a nuestra llegada como detalle de bienvenida y también nos dejaron café y té para el desayuno. El apartamento está cerca del mercado, la calle Sta. Catarina y Avenida Dos Aliados. Sin duda, volveríamos a repetir. Muito obrigado!
We did spend a great time in Porto and also in the appartment. It's very nice and has everything you need for a city trip. The Location is great to explore the city and the Nightlife. We received a few recommendations but as we were visiting a friend who knows Porto very well, we did not need them. I would really recommend this Place, it is also very quiet as we did have an appartment with view to the courtyard, not sure how it would be to the other side.
Thanks for everything!
