Lovely apartment made even better by the friendly welcome. Definitely would reccommend!
Ana was a great host: we arrived too early and the cleaning lady was in progress but we were allowed to leave the luggage there. We had several questions some month before and during the stay (upgrade the number of guests, where to go out for dinner, reservation in the restaurant, where to park, where to bring the litter,...) which I asked Ana via tge airbnb app and she answered literally after few minutes and very kindly every single time. The flat is just perfect - we were 4 persons to stay there. It is modern, stylish, spacious and best located. Across the street there is a market where you can get cheap and very tasty food. A short walk away there are great restaurants, shopping areas or the historical sightseeings. We had dinner in some extraordinary restaurants which offer traditional receipes in a modern slow food way: you HAVE to visit flor dos congredados (Ana reserved a table for us there some weeks before - thanks for this!) and tasca caseira! All things considered, we had an almost perfect stay. Thank you, Ana, we hope to come back one day
Fantastic apartment with a sweet view of the city! This is a seriously beautiful place and is located conveniently next to many great restaurants and shops. The host was very helpful and super nice!! The only downside is there is no air conditioning.. So the nights could get a little hot. I would highly recommend this place!
This is a comfortabel appartment in the city center of porto. A modern accomodation in a historic building.
Ana's apartment is stunning and in a fantastic location to explore Porto. Its opposite the market and right next door to a supermarket. Its in a very central location with excellent access to everywhere including the Douro and the train and bus stations. We had a great time in Porto and Ana's place was the perfect base for us. Ana was a great host - always quick to respond to questions before the visit and on hand if necessary during our stay.
Bel appartement, très bien situé. L'hôte est très serviable.
Idèal pour un séjour de deux personnes.
