The space

A big and bright bedroom right in the middle of the heart of Oporto waiting for you to enjoy :)

A spacious double bedroom.

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.

I loved the location and spending time talking with Joao. I liked the large room and that the bnb was very clean. Joao is a great host as well. My only comment to Joao was that shower did not drain well.
