Accueil parfait malgré le retard de notre avion, l'appart est magnifique et idéalement placé ! A partager !
Le petit plus, l'APP bolhao dispo sur les stores et dispo hors connexion.
Wir haben 3 Nächte im By Oporto Appartment (By Bolhao), welches sich im Zentrum von Porto verbracht und es hat uns sehr gefallen. Das Zimmer war sehr gross und verfügte über eine Küche, ein Badezimmer und einem kleinen Wohnzimmer. Die Vermieter waren sehr hilfsbereit und gastfreundlich und es wurde von ihnen sogar ein App mit Routen zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten und Restauranttipps zu Verfügung gestellt. Wir würden dort sofort wieder übernachten.
Que de bons mots pour ce sublime appartement au cœur de Porto. Accueil extraordinaire. La ville nous a été très bien expliqué. Notre avion aterissait tôt le matin, ils ont gentiment gardé nos bagages le temps que l'appartement soit prêt. Bref, à recommander sans retenue. Que du positif
Good situation, clean, well equiped, recently renovated, all the shops around the apartment. Parfait pour un sejour a Porto.
Teresa was friendly and helpful.
We came early that day and Maria was very kind and let us leave our luggage at the place. Maria also suggested a few restaurants and points of interest for us.
The room is very cozy and clean. The location is excellent with the subway station just few minutes away.
Overall this place deserves a five-star rating.
The apartment is beautiful, spatious and situated in a very convenient and central location.
Teresa was very welcoming and easy to communicate with, also very accomodating concerning the arrival time.
The only thing that slightly disturbed our night there was the noise from the street - a lot of buses stop there and they cause quite a lot of noise so we advise future guests with lighter sleep to bring earplugs.
Apart from that, impeccable and amazing value!
