Instructions were very clear and the flat was just like on the pictures. Very close to the station. The elevator did not work properly, which was a bit annoying as the flat is on the 6th (last) floor. It was also pretty cold in the flat. Apart from that, I would recommend it!
The apartment is very cosy and it is fully equipped. There is a supermarket just below which is very useful. Maria send one of her staff members to open us the door , they were really nice. We did not have any problem during our stay, everything went well.
To get everywhere we walked, Porto is not that big and it is easy to get anywhere walking but in case you are more of a fan of public transportation the metro is 5 minutes from the apartment.
A notre arrivée a Porto, nous avons été reçus par Georges, le mari de Maria ! Accueil très chaleureux, il nous a donner les principales choses a voir a Porto et d'autres informations comme les bonnes adresses de caves ou de restaurants !
L'appartement est très bien situé, a 200m de la station de métro principale. Il est propre et moderne.
I was very happy with my stay at Maria's apartment.
As per the photos, the apartment is clean, spacious, and has a pleasant minimalist interior. Being close to the main metro station (Trindade, a 5-minutes walk away) and the historic centre of Porto (10-15 minute walk), the location is ideal. There is a grocery store just below the apartment, which is also very convenient.
Two minor negatives: the beds were a bit hard and low down for my liking, and the apartment is near to a bus parking lot, which was sometimes a source of noise at night. However, these were only minor issues.
Maria was very helpful and accommodating.
Overall - a great experience and I'll definitely recommend her apartment to friends who might visit Porto!
Maria is a very responsible and cheerful person. Must be noticed, she is fluent in English, which makes communications a piece of cake.
Apartment is very well located -- close to tourist attractions but at the same time in native area, so you can feel like a real Porto citizen. Besides apartment is very clean and stylish, you can find anything a traveller would need: coffee pot, dishes, iron, kitchen clothes. Of course, standard set of hosting gear is there as well -- towels, soap, shampoo, washing machine, even dish washer (for those who are planning on big parties). If you lack anything, Maria will do her best to help you.
Convenient food shop and a few caffés are literally next door. People are friendly and helpful.
I would recommend this apartment for a few days stay in Porto.
A really nice appartment and perfectly located to visit the city center and the surroundings...
Very nice appartment. Well designed. Really cloe to Trinidade metro station that makes good connection to other parts of the Porto. 10 minutes to the Clerigos Tower, 20 minutes to Ribeira by foot. Quite noisy due to bus station below the windows but thats the only con I found. Grosery the next door.
We had a perfect time in Porto thanks to Maria's and George's hospitality! The apartment is exactly as described, very functional and perfect for a short stay. It is located next to the city center, so everything can be seen by foot. There is a small supermarket with everything you need just downstairs in the house. Our hosts gave us great insider tipps for our visit - and especially delicious figs from George's family in the country side! We for sure hope to come back! Thanks!
Appartement très propre, fonctionnel et lumineux. A 5 min à pieds de la station Trindade où toutes les lignes passent et situé à 10 min du centre (toujours à pieds). Très bon rapport qualité/prix. Maria nous a fait un très bon accueil, et elle vient d'ouvrir un petit supermarché juste en bas de l'immeuble (donc toujours à proximité si besoin).
Maria was wonderful host, willing to help about everything, from recommendation where to go and what to see to some issues with studio (when we need something she bring that in 15min). Apartment is very well located, close to everything (Trinidade metro station is less then 10min walk). Kitchen was functionally, beds were very comfortable, location was great, Maria was host with full meaning of that word.
Highly recommendation for flat and host, too.
This couple was a pleasure to host. Great peopIe. Funny, friendly, open-minded and a heart at the right place. I´d love to welcome them again, any time.
