We enjoyed our stay in the lovely and very centrally located apartment a lot! Really cosy and soo nicely decorated to feel immediately at home! Muito obrigada :-)
L'appartement est très bien dans son ensemble, car spacieux et très lumineux. Idéalement situé dans le centre ville à proximité de tous les lieux d'intérêts, il permet de profiter au maximum de son séjour. Par ailleurs, Ana a été très gentille, accueillante et ponctuelle. Je le recommande sans hésitations.
Appartement très agréable, propre et de qualité, très bien placé (métro, bus et commerces).
Très calme la nuit. Dans la journée, entre 8h et 20h, fort bruit de soufflerie dans la cour. Contacts avec notre hôtesse très faciles.
Très bon séjour.
The apartment was very clean in an excellent location. Two delicious pastries and water were waiting for us on arrival - a nice touch. Lots of closet space, very new and nicely decorated.
Ana was zeer vriendelijk. Ze reed met ons tot de beste parkeergarage in de buurt. Aangezien de gasten voor ons laat hadden uitgecheckt moest het appartement nog gepoetst worden. Dat was helemaal geen probleem. In tegendeel we kregen een kraaknet appartement. Het is zeer centraal gelegen in porto. Aan te bevelen!
Tout simplement parfait! Un beau studio impeccable, décoré avec goût et avantageusement situé dans un quartier animé le jour et calme la nuit.
Nous recommandons vivement cet endroit. Et que dire de Porto, la magnifique....
I can't say anything else than that this apartment is amazing.The apartment is on a great location. Ana is an excellent host.
