This studio is located in a really central zone, classified by UNESCO in 1996 as World Heritage, this is the zone with most wonderful views of the city, the true views “from Porto to Porto”.
By the window you will see the “Clérigos” church and tower, the beautiful and urban “Cordoaria garden”, the brand new “Lisboa square” and really near the Portuguese Centre of Photography and the Lello Bookshop, a special bookshop known for being the third greatest bookshop in the world (classified by “Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2011” as a “art nouveau gem”) . And yes, you can see all this over the apartment balcony in a perfectly walkable distance.
In about 200 meters you can see the best sightseeing points in the city. You have “Passeio das Virtudes” in the end of the street, you can go to the top of Clérigos tower, or you can find a really wonderful and forgotten place known as “Miradouro da Vitória” (Vitória Viewpoint), that is for me the best view from Porto.
This apartment is really near the “art zone” were you can find galleries of art, tea rooms, second hand cloth-shops, alternative cloth-shops and lots of fun at night and during day.
If you want to walk near the river and to the “Ribeira” zone, it will take less than 5 minutes. There you will find great restaurants, bars, and some great monuments.
I’m sure you will love Porto in this sunny apartment…
Waiting for you in one of these days…

The apartment is very nice, clean and well equipped. The location is handy, next to Sao Bento train and metro station. Sofia was very kind to us and she gave us many tips we followed right away, above all regarding food. The neighborhood is quiet and there are several interesting restaurants. Highly recommended!

The apartment is nice and well furnished, clean and perfectly located! I recommend it!

We really enjoyed our stay in Porto! The location of the Apartment is perfect for going to the old city or the river and its not far from the night spot. We were four girls and had enough space in the Apartment. The bed and also the sofa were very comfortable! :) The city is very beautiful and all of us felt save walking through the city alone, also at night because the Apartment is so well located. When we arrived everything was clean and we received good tips where to go and what we have to see :)

Great experience and useful explanations to all the secret spots in Porto ! We highly recommend Cafe Santiago, so worth the 30 minute wait. The apartment was clean and in a perfect spot!

Sofia who met us at the apartment made us feel very welcome right away. The property is beautiful and we had the opportunity to stay at two of them (the first for 2 nights, and one floor up for the last night). The second property had a wonderful terrace which we could access from the room. The location is great - very close to the train station and a nice short walk from the riverside. Everyone we communicated with was very friendly. Overall, great experience - definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting!

The location is amazing, in a cute neighborhood within walking distance to everything and some great restaurants right across the street with a perfect pastry and coffee shop next door. I adored the big open windows but beware leaving them open at night it is very noisy, I am not a light sleeper so was fine and with earplugs wouldn't be a problem. My only complaint is that because this is run by an agency and not someone's personal home there are some small homy things that make me choose airbnb versus a hotel missing. For instance, there was no water or anything in the fridge which I always think makes it feel like someone lives there. The bathroom compared to the apartment is a disappointment...clean and nice but feels a bit like a hotel and bare minimum. The final thing is that they charge if you check in after 8 which I don't love. Again I prefer airbnb because I feel like I am sharing in someones home and not renting from an agency. Overall I would definitely stay here as the room is nice and location is great.

This space was awesome! Welcome and check in was friendly and easy and the place was super clean. Can’t say enough good things about the neighborhood, which was close to everything but still felt calm and relaxed. Right on the block there were three or four amazing restaurants, from the Portuguese-with-a-global-twist small plates place Vira Lata, to the traditional Portuguese neighborhood joint with pork and codfish Taverna Santo Antonio, to the adorable place whose name we forgot (but look for the tree growing inside the restaurant), serving amazing organic salads (which you need and want after a few weeks in Portugal!) and run by an adorable Portuguese husband-Italian wife couple—if they are serving Tiramisu, it’s her family’s secret recipe, replacing the Italian cookies with Portuguese ones, and you don’t want to miss it. To the left there was a beautiful public garden and down the street to the right there was a great small public park overlooking the river. A short walk down to the Douro to stroll, close access to museums and a cornucopia of amazing restaurants, bars, and cute little stores. Café right downstairs for your morning espresso or cappuccino. Porto at your fingertips and, with the windows closed, it was quiet at night.
