Cesar's apartment was a great location from which to explore Porto. Spacious and comfortable.
Cesar welcomed us and was very helpful. He was very gracious when it became apparent that I had made a mistake with my booking where I assumed (wrongly) we had booked an additional night. Fortunately we found alternative accommodation nearby.
Absolutely recommendable. Location and interior design great. Cesar is very friendly and helpful. He runs a nice restaurant with local products right next door. You should try the taste of Porto/Douro! Hope to come back soon!
Idéalement situé pour visiter Porto a pied
César est un hôte très accueillant
N'hésitez pas à aller déguster vin et mets qu'ils produisent au petit Resto situé au bas de l'immeuble. Les vendanges tardives sont un délice.
The perfect place to stay in Porto.
A spacious, clean, well equipped retro apartment with great views of the old city. It's right in the centre of town and walking distance to most attractions. Plenty of transport, restaurants, cafes, shops all very close by.
César was a great host with clear communication and flexibility around check in / check out times.
Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'appartement de César. Il est très joli, confortable, très bien équipé et décoré. La vue est également très belle depuis l'appartement. Et surtout, il est extrêmement bien situé : sites touristiques et monuments à proximité, tout comme gare, restaurants, métro... Et en cas de soucis (mais il n'y en a eu aucun !), César est juste en bas dans son restaurant.
A estadia foi perfeita. O Cesar nos recebeu de bracos abertos. A estadia, apesar de longa, foi formidavel. A localizaçao excelente. Sem barulhos e muito confortavel. Estamos morrendo de saudades. Me senti em casa.
Muitissimo obrigado Cesar
