The Space

Big, sunny bedroom right in the middle of the heart of Oporto waiting for you to enjoy :)

There are other three rooms on this floor(one single and two other double bedrooms), each with its own key.
All linen and towels are provided.

We have a large common living room & dining room where you can enjoy breakfast and relax in the sofa while listening to our vinyl records.

The kitchen is fully furnished with a fridge, stove, cooking plates, coffee maker, toaster and kettle.
There are two bathrooms in the house, both with shower to shared use.
There is also a quiet terrace with sunbeds for you to relax after the long walks exploring the city

We have two metro stations (Aliados and Bolhão) just two minutes away from the house.

On your doorstep you will find plenty of shops, restaurants, cafés, and some of the best bakeries in town within walking distance.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • A Formosa is a great choice if you want to stay in a cozy, familiar place when in Porto. Clean and sunny, Joao has superb taste, beautiful furniture and good music and magazines all around the house. Really good location. I highly recommend it! :)

  • Bei João in Porto war es fantastisch. Die Wohnung ist sehr stilvoll und die Atmosphäre und das Frühstück sind prima. João ist sehr herzlich und ein interessanter Mensch, der sich viel Zeit für seine Gäste nimmt. Wir hatten tolle Gespräche und er hat uns viel über Porto und das Leben in Portugal mitgegeben.

  • There are two aspects to this review. The first being the greatest.

    Host Joao - he has been the highlight of our trip. From waiting personally for our late arrival to the various chats and experiences shared. We were lucky to have him as a part of our daily routine even though he doesn't reside there.

    Accom - one of the best we've stayed at in terms of location utility hospitality and cleanliness. The people staying there were pleasant at the least.

    Would highly recommend for an unforgettable Porto experience.

  • We spent a great time in the apartment of Joao. He is absolutely a great and very nice host! The apartment is located in the center of Porto, near by the train station, nice restaurants, bars and the shopping area. The rooms are very clean, stylish furnitured so that it gives a warm and cosy atmosphere. We loved to stay there! Whenever going back to Porto, then to Joao.

  • João was really great! And the Aparment as well!

    Its located right in the middle of the center - everything is within walking distance. Just down the street opposite the market is a great bakery (for breakfast and a good alternative to the very touristic majestic cafe).
    The Apartment is very comfortable and big. João had breakfast with us every morning and we just talked for a really long time.. He has great advices for eating (the chicken place..) and made us go to vila nova de milfontes (which is also very beautiful and relaxing for a portugese beach holiday).. thank you!

  • Marvellous place! We loved the location downtown Porto: very central and perfect to discover the city. Everything is at walking distance. We loved the place: very nice apartment, superb (phone number hidden)s furniture, comfortable facilities. And, we appreciated very much the warmth of the welcome we had on arrival. João came every day and cares for his guests. We had nice discussions. We do recommend the place without any hesitation. We may come back sometimes in the future.
