Wij zijn erg tevreden over ons verblijf in Ana's apartement. De locatie was zeer goed, het apartment mooi en schoon en Ana was erg vriendelijk.
ana est très prévenante, souriante.
l'appartement est extrêmement bien situé, proche des bus/métro (100m) qui vont de l'aéroport jusqu'au la plage, et en face d'un magnifique marché.
il faut simplement savoir que pour cette proximité il y a beaucoup de bruit et qu'actuellement la ville de porto est en travaux à tous les coins de rues.
Super appartement pour 2 ou 3 personnes.
Ana was really quick in her response and the apartment was absolutely perfect, even more beautiful than in the photos. She gave us a small welcome bottle of port and lots of information about Porto.
Localização perfeita e apartamento muito limpo e agradável. A comunicação com a Ana e a Maria foi muito boa. Tudo fantástico!
Lovely apartment in a great location. Free port and water was a nice touch. Communication was great and we were able to store our bags before we checked in which was much appreciated.
We had a great stay at Ana's! The apartment is beautiful and the location is great. It's a little loud but that wasn't a bother for us at all. It's within walking distance to practically everything. The only disappointment was that we couldn't stay longer!
This is a really unique, beautiful and clean apartment. The kitchen is quite large and well-stocked, so it's easy to make meals at home. It's located in a very convenient part of town. It's just a block to the metro and a few blocks to the train station, but you can walk almost anywhere in the old (website hidden) neighbors are very quiet. However, the apartment is on a very busy street and there is quite a bit of traffic noise. Ana was a great host. She was very prompt in responding to my inquiries. We'd definitely stay here again.
