About This Listing
Double room in a shared apartment with great solar exposure for rent in a fantastic zone of Porto, 5 minutes walk from the River side (Ribeira), 5 minutes walk from bars and night-life zone, 10 minutes walk to main square and metro station. Has several small markets around, and windows of apartment are facing a small square with an old and very beautiful church. Very typical surrounding, ideal for small stays of Vacation with Porto's real feel. The room has all furniture, linen and towels that you need, and you can use everything in common areas as a flatmate (that includes some basic cooking ingredients)! All house is fully equipped and furnished. WiFi internet available also.
The house has in total 3 rooms, and generally I live here in one of them, but at the moment I'm staying in another place nearby and renting my room here also.
Anyway I really like meeting people and going out for some sightseeing, dinner, drinks and even party if the mood goes that way, so if I'm free from work, you can always count on that! But if in the other hand you are looking for some quite, private and relaxing time, that is also perfect for me. :) Any of the ways, an introduction to the best spots in Porto will happen for sure, even if only on the map. :)
There are no real rules here, except the ones of common sence, like clean after you use, and leave things as you found! We have some basic cooking things that we can share (oil, butter, salt, spices, etc.) but you should buy things that you want to cook, or we can share costs of meals together! Is a non smoking house, so smoking only at the entrance of the building.
Super séjour à Porto ! L'appartement est extrêmement bien situé, l'accueil par Ricardo s'est fait comme chez un ami. Ricardo nous a donner de très bons conseils qui nous ont permis de passer un très bon séjour ! Nous recommandons !
Um grande obrigado. Ricardo is a very welcoming host. He is full of enthusiasm and his recommendations for places to visit and eat were great. The apartment is very comfortable and in a great location. I would definitely visit again and recommend Ricardo's hospitality
Ricardo is super helpful and kind. He took his time to explain to us on a map places to check out. His restaurant recommendations were awesome. The apartment is conveniently located for visiting the lodges, is well-equipped and clean.
Positive aspects: The flat is located perfectly in the heart of the city and Ricardo was a good host. We only saw him twice during our stay (3 nights), because he is not living in the flat (anymore), but when, he was always smiling and kind.
Only but serious negative aspect: The window wall was all black, full of humidity, the same in the kitchen and in the bathroom (which has no window) even worse. Although the flat was very clean, we felt disguisted. Can´t be healthy to stay there for a longer time.
Ricardo was a very gracious and friendly host. Went out of his way to accommodate us and was very communicative. He is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to Oporto so you are getting a tour guide as well as a host.
Malheureusement nous n'avons pas rencontré Ricardo qui a cependant fait le nécessaire en demandant à une de ses amies de nous accueillir. Le séjour était très agréable, l'appartement de Ricardo est conforme aux descriptions et bien situé.
Merci pour tout à Ricardo !

About the Host, Ricardo
If I would have to make the exercise of defining myself in one word, I would for sure choose "passionate"! I put passion in everything I do, even in the smallest day life things!
But in other hand if I would have to define myself in a more specific and concrete way, I would say I am a kind of a music man... I live for it and from it... My life does not have any meaning without it... I work as a sound engineer in a Concert Hall called "Casa da Musica", in my home city Porto, I'm singing on the "Casa da Musica" professional chamber choir (wish is giving me a huge joy and happiness), and I try very hard to make my own music as I play some keyboards and use a lot of sequencing and electronics (unfortunately the time as made this impossible). More about me, I love meeting new people, love to talk, to learn things, go out dancing and partying (I know a lot of the nightlife here in Porto, especially on the weekdays because of my work schedule and can show you some nice spots), well enjoy life in all that it has to offer... I like to taste good food, drink a good wine (we have some great ones here), smell the fresh air, see a nice view over a river, or a mountain, but the best thing is to share space, time and knowledge with people... That is the best...
