Os outros é que me (d)escrevem.
Victor was a great host and his apartment was wonderful. THe apartment was open with lots of space in the living room, and very close to a lot of great attractions and restaurants. We were easily able to get around the city from its location, and easily able to find the apartment when first arriving to Porto. Victor was very helpful giving us directions on how to get to the apartment from the airport and providing literature about the city to find all the spots we needed to go. Even after we had checked in, if we needed help, Victor quickly would respond to any questions or concerns we had. Would easily stay here again in the future. Great apartment in a great city.
Check in process smooth and was conducted by one of Victor's colleagues, apartment was clean and as per the listing however we were surprised that the bed had not been made, as per previous reviews you are up four flights of uneven stairs (it didn't affect our stay but it may affect others'), wifi connection was great, we had an issue with a leaking pipe and Victor promptly organised (from Lisbon) to have it seen to, location is a good area although the apartment is a 10-15 minute walk uphill, please be aware that the bathroom is very small and the shower leaks into the tiles around the shower itself.
Great location (I mean great) in the old district Ribeira (UNESCO listed). Close to the train station and many restaurants. The apartment is big for 2 people, internet access was spotless.
On the negatives - the bathroom is rather small and uncomforable and it was quite cold at night (in spite of the heating turned on.
We had a great time staying in this apartment. It was exactly what we were looking for. The location was perfect, the kitchen was fully equipped, the internet worked well, and there was plenty of space. Eliana let us in, and she was incredibly friendly and gave us quite a few recommendations. The only downside was that it did get a little chilly at night, but there was a heater in the living room, and plenty of blankets.
We have a great time in Victor's place, the place was very clean and well iluminated.
O apartamento é extremamente bem localizado. Perto dos principais pontos de interesse, em particular a área da Ribeira. Está perto também da estação do Metro; ponto de táxi e de ônibus na porta. O apartamento está bem equipado e não senti falta de nenhum utensílio. Ideal para quem quer passar de uma a duas noites. Entretanto, para quem vai ficar mais tempo que isso, como no meu caso que fiquei 7 noites, os defeitos do apartamento tornam a experiência negativa. O apartamento não estava adequadamente limpo. Tinha poeira em armários, cheiro de mofo no sofá, cheiro de esgoto vindo da pia do banheiro e da cozinha. O banheiro é ridículo e exige malabarismo para entrar e sair dele. A posição do chuveiro (box) é inusitada e algo mais burro que já vi na vida! No quarto, há excesso de armários e falta de espaço para um mínimo de conforto para duas pessoas dormirem na cama de casal. A escada que leva ao apartamento pode ser também um inconveniente para pessoas mais idosas. Recomendo o apartamento apenas para uma ou duas noites; para viajante sozinho ou para casal de jovens. Desaconselho fortemente para quem busca um lugar para uma estadia maior. A menos que seja feita uma reforma no banheiro e no quarto. E haja mais atenção com a limpeza do imóvel.
Apartment is conveniently located in the centre, near the river.
It's an old house with a lot of stairs.
Apartment itself is cosy and has all mod cons.
Communication with Victor was very good, and instructions provided were clear.
Tivemos uma agradavel recepçao e estadia no apartamento do Victor. Obrigada!
Victor was really really kind! Because our flight was so late, we arranged to meet at midnight. Unfortunately the flight was delayed so that we arrived at two o clock in the morning. A friend of Victor was waiting for us and nevertheless has been really nice. Thanks so much and sorry again!
The flat is in a very good area and very cosy. We would definetely come back!
Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis, une très bonne première impression donc.
L'appartement contient tout ce qui est nécessaire et on s'y sent comme chez soi! Nous en avons d'autant plus profité que nos 5 cinq jours à Porto ont été salués par la pluie et les orages...
L'emplacement est parfait pour qui souhaite loger dans la vieille ville, à proximité du Douro.
