The appartment was exactly as the pictures. Ana and her sister were very helpful. Definetely a recommendation for a couple who wants to stay in the centre.
A Ana é uma excelente anfitriã, muito pontual, bastante receptiva e com uma energia muito positiva. Quanto à acomodação não podia ter esperado melhor, devidamente equipada, otima para uma noite como foi o caso ou mesmo para uma semana de ferias. Localizada no coração da grande invita, aconselho vivamente a casais, amigos ou singulares que desejam visitar e sentir a vibração do grande Porto!! Foi uma otima experiência, e planeio voltar certamente :)
The apartment is recently renovated and is very nice and cozy. The neighborhood is very nice and there is a bakery and the market just steps away - to enjoy a good breakfast with some fresh croissants.
We enjoyed staying at this apartment. It is cute and tidy as the pictures show. The communication with Ana before arriving was flawless, she and her sister are very kind and helpful hosts.
One thing, not very disturbing but may be good to know - the terrace is facing an air vent, which is turned on during day time. It did not bother us since there is so much to see in Porto!
The hosts were absolutely lovely. The flat was very clean, modern and comfortable. There were little touches here and there that made us feel well-looked after. It was a shame that we couldn't stay longer! Would definitely stay again in a heartbeat.
Muy buena zona, el apartameno perfecto, cuidado, muy limpio, luminoso, la cama super comoda. No falta detalle. Cuando volvamos a Porto repetiremos.
Fue una estancia muy satisfactoria y Ana estuvo siempre muy atenta.
