  • A M A Z I N G ! João is amazing person, very helpful and he really made us feel like we are in our home! The apartment is located in the center and you are able to reach everything on foot. It is clean and for breakfast you can have almost everything. I wish to have more days to stay in Porto. When I' ll be back for sure I will visit him again!

  • Gorgeous bedroom on a vintage decorated stylish flat. Just wish I had more time to enjoy my short stay. Definitely will return. Joao as a host was truly helpful, friendly and super flexible with all our needs. 5 f*****stars!

  • Nice & clean room, perfectly situated in the heart of Porto AND no problem with parking possibilities.
    We enjoyed our stay in Porto a lot! Such an interesting, varied city with great bakeries, bars, cafés etc. Joao is a super great host, very obliging and attentive! Thanks to him and his advice we have found the best traditional Portuguese fresh fish restaurant in Portugal :)
    Thanks a lot!

  • Great place to stay. Highly recommend! Joao is a great host and brings fresh bread every morning! Make sure to ask him where the best gelato place is and the pork rolls!! If you have a hearty appetite, ask him where to find the best tasting little french girl...or francescina. Best location!

  • Enjoyed our stay at Casa Formosa very much. Joao was helpful and informative, enthusiastic and creative about Porto and Portugal, which added to our enjoyment of the city and it surroundings. We were guided to family restaurants, informal fado, and markets. The room was comfortable and clean and the shared bathrooms kept spotless. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful. All in all a very good experience. Even the noisy gulls and the odd lorry or machine in the night became just part of the rich mix. Thank you, Joao.

  • João was a really nice host! We were just for one night in this apartment. But he made cake for us and helped us with a taxi in the night to the airport. Further, the house was very nice and the location could not be better, in the middle of the city. There was also lots of food we could use. We felt very welcome!

  • This place is the best Airbnb experience we have had so far!!! Great room, exceptional host, nice breakfast, and an incredible value. The location is a little away from the river, but it is great for getting a taste of the local cuisine and culture! Overall great experience!

  • If you are looking for a true B&B experience and not just a room, this is a perfect solution. We only met Sara briefly but Joao turned up every morning with fresh bread or something else from the bakery for breakfast. The ktichen is fitted out well and the breakfast provisions provided make this exceptionally good value. The room is exactly as pictured. It is full of light, very large and comfortable. The linens were good quality and the bed exceptionally comfortable - very nice to sleep in. The house which was nicely decorated in retro style, is kept very clean every day. Joao had many excellent suggestions for things to do and places to eat- especially those places that, as a tourist, you would never find. In addition to that, he was just a really interesting person to get to know.
    We enjoyed are stay immensely and highly recommend it.
