The apartment was exactly as stated - a cozy loft in a wonderful location! The pictures are a true representation of this lovely rental - very clean, tastefully decorated, and with a gorgeous view.
Check-in was very easy, the owners live in the same building so any issues can be swiftly dealt with (although we had no issues at all). We only got to meet Andre, but he was an excellent host and gave us some great tips and information not only about the apartment, but about what to see, do, and eat in Porto. We tried all of his food/restaurant suggestions and they did not disappoint!
The location is great! Not only close to a metro station, but also a very popular shopping street. There is a supermarket within minutes and the area is abundant with restaurants and cafes.
The apartment itself was quiet and cozy. The wifi is great (very fast) and there are plenty of things to entertain such as cable tv, magazines, and films. All of these things came in handy since we put our 1-year old to bed early and were unable to go out in the evenings. If we return to Porto in the future we will definitely try and stay there again!
Cosy and very well equipped (internet, TV, kitchen, bathroom...) loft ! Nice location between tourist areas and night spots. It's perfect for a couple.
André was very welcoming. He shows us various places to go (restaurants, bars, tourist spots...)
Small detail for people sensitive to cold like me and used to warming comfort like in french houses : apparently in Porto in general, flats aren't equipped with heating. In André and Olivia loft there is a small heating. So it's cool but night can be cold in winter.
We fall in love with Porto and we recommend this loft !
A very nice Appartment in the center of Porto. Andre was very welcoming and gave us loads of advice on where to go and what to do. Thumbs up!
Olívia and André were such welcoming hosts, spending time with us on arrival to give us detailed directions and great recommendations with which to explore Porto. The apartment itself was perfectly clean, comfortable and an easy walk to Porto's major sites and nightlife. Thanks again Olívia and André, we had such a great stay in Porto - looking forward to returning soon!
Nice location, and nice kitchen! My mom like it very much! There is also big supermarket nearby. They also suggest us some nice vegetarian restaurant for us which is very helpful.
However, it's a little be cold if you didn't wear more cloth in night. But i believe if they were in town, they will solve the problem immediately.
Olivia and Andre were both very welcoming, very nice people and flexible hosts. The apartment was clean and tidy and very central. All in all recommended. The only negative we experienced was being woken one morning by heavy drilling coming from the building next door which is being renovated. We only had this one morning but be aware when booking you may experience similar.
Hello Stuart! We're really glad you enjoyed your stay! About the building next door noise you refer, we're sorry but it is something we can't control. Gladly, this is temporary and the renovations are finishing very soon.
Porto is in a renovation process so this is a common situation all over the city.
When I entered this apartment I thought: "Wow, it is the first time the apartment looks better than in the photos."
Leading up to our early arrival, Olívia and André were so helpful to guide us through a few decisions on where we will go in Portugal and the logistics of that: a rental car, train, etc. Before arriving, I felt welcome. And then when we got there we were way too early for the check in and someone was occupying the apartment. Our hosts were so accommodating to let us leave our things at their private home! That is when they started giving so many ideas on what we can do for breakfast, some sights, some tips on customs, etc. We left with a breadth of valuable information, saving us hours of trying to discover on our own.
The apartment has a nice view of the city, and it has a lovely atmosphere inside. Though we did not spend a lot of time in the apartment, when we returned we were quite comfortable.
*Definitely the highlight is how kind and helpful these two are for guests. 5 star experience!
lovely place right in the centre of Porto, cozy and clean!
Olivia and Andre were very nice with us and helped with anything we needed! I highly recommend to stay in this lovely apartment! Thank you very much for everything! :)
El piso está en una excelente ubicación, muy limpio y con todo lo necesario para pasar una buena estadía. Los anfitriones han sido muy amables y nos han ayudado en todo lo necesario en nuestra visita en Portugal. Muy recomendable! Seguro que repetiremos!
Really a lovely place. Location was good, very near the shopping area and the main square. The house was nicely furnished and they even had a few movies prepared for us. Olivia and Andre were especially nice. Spent about half an hour talking to them, going through the places to eat and sightsee and just getting to know each other better. A really lovely couple.
