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 chez Ricardo appartement très bien situé spacieux et confortable : vous disposez d'une grande cuisine pour faire vos repas. Vous êtes situés en plein centre de porto et très central. Ricardo est souriant et à l écoute de ses hôtes. Je recommande vivement.
We had a wonderful stay at Ricardo's place. He was kind enough to wait for us to arrive at 12:30am! And then kindly showed us all of the key attractions in Porto on a map, including some local restaurant suggestions which we tried and loved. Ricardo was not living in the house and his other room was being leased to other airbnb guests. This was not a problem but worth knowing when booking. The room was big and clean, as was the bathroom. The location is very convenient; within 10 minutes walk to the river and sao bento station. Ricardo kindly allowed us a late check out on request as well which was helpful given our late train ride leaving Porto. Overall, we would recommend this listing.
Ricardo is a brilliant host, passionate about meeting people. The place was nice, clean, and quiet. Very exclusive location in the city! Ricardo gave us recommendations, we loved all we tried. Thanks again!
Ricardo is the best host I have ever met. He not only picked us up from the train station, but also gave us lots of travel suggestions. The room itself is clean and spacious. The apartment is well-equipped, but the hot water in bathroom is not so adequate. The location of the apartment is great, from which we can walk to anywhere in the city centre. But With luggage, it's a bit difficult to walk to the metro or bus station.
Ricardo nous a accueilli lui-même le jour de notre arrivée et nous a donné des tas de conseils de visites et d'atuces sur Porto. Ainsi, les valises à peine posées, nous nous sommes rendus dans un petit café qui ne paye pas de mine où avait lieu un concert privé de fado, donné pas des gens comme vous et moi. Super expérience, merci 1000 fois pour ce conseil.
L'appartement est très bien situé, dans un quartier assez sympa, très proche du Douro. Les nuits de week-end, prévoir les boules Quiès si vous voulez dormir en paix. Autrement, relativement et étonnament calme. L'appartement est bien équipé, il est très propre, la chambre que nous avons occupée disposait de cintres, d'un fauteuil, d'une table et d'une chaise.
En fait, il s'agit de trois chambres qui sont louées, Ricardo habitant ailleurs.
Ricardo est très sympa, il était toujours joignable et s'est donné beaucoup de mal pour nous permettre de passer un bon séjour et pour déposer nos bagages le dernier jour. Merci beaucoup pour tout!
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 !

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...
