We had a great time staying in Cesar's Porto apartment!
The apartment is clean, really well located, peaceful, secure and has all the things we needed for our stay. As a bonus it's also located just above Cesar's wonderful restaurant which I'd also thoroughly recommend - try the tasting plate with a glass of local wine.
Cesar himself was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed, including some information about the local area. He's a pleasure to deal with.
I'd recommend Porto for a place to visit (it was my 2nd time there and I'll be back again), and I'd recommend Cesar's apartment as a place to stay.
SPACE: This apartment belies the official airbnb photographs. Its a beautifully large and immaculate space with a romantically historical view. Very comfortable, with subtle style and a personal touch.
HOST: Very close by and on hand if we needed but unobtrusive. Exactly how we like a host to be.
LOCATION: You cannot get better. Right near the heart of the historic centre…not too close so that you don't feel too claustrophobic. All of the major sights including the fabulous churches, museums and the river are within walking distance.
We'll never forget our sweet home in Porto. Everything was unbelievably perfect. Cesar is very kind and helpful. The view from the window is amazing. Very silent street - only seagulls meowing and fairy enchanting chime from the chapel. We'll be back to this charming place.
Excellent location and charming bedroom. Didn't use the sofa bed. Cosy and nice Porto "feel" to it. It has been repainted (walls are off withe rather than green) and feels very breezy. Everything worked fine. César was welcoming and relaxed. I had to wait a bit on arrival day as previous guests had given César and cleaning lady a hard time. I was happily compensated with a late check-out on departure as next guests were not expected until the day after. Do not hesitate. Porto is great and with this flat you can make the most our of it!
Cesar was a fantastic host, he was extremely helpful. He made us feel very welcome, and paid meticulous attention to detail. The flat is great and much more spacious than you could imagine, simple and tastefully decorated. It is in the best area in Porto- with all the best restaurants seconds away.
Cesar is on hand to help as owns restaurant downstairs - we ate there I be last night and the food and wine were fantastic! They produce their own wine in the restaurant, and the bottle of white we had was delicious!
Really nice and friendly host. The apartment is central located. Everything was perfect. Thank you
Great location, great apartment, great host, and a great city. We were very comfortable here for our stay in Porto. The place has lots of space, a great view, a good kitchen, and is in the middle of everything; we found Lello & Irmão by accident when we went out for breakfast and the river is a quick walk down the hill. Cesar was very helpful and accommodating, everything was easy; will for sure try to stay here again.
Very charming apartment extremely centrally located. César responded very quickly to messages and despite our late arrival, key pick up and drop off went very smoothly. The apartment is just as pictured, beautiful and basic with all of the amenities one needs to enjoy the magic of Porto while being a stone's throw away from beautiful views, gardens and local night life. I strongly recommend this apartment.
Excellent apartment. Clean and bright with a well equipped kitchen and laundry. César was a great host. No complaints and no problems. We would stay here again.
As other guests already said, César's appartment is a great place to stay in Porto and also very well located to discover the city. Indeed a place to feel at home. Cèsar is a great host, we also arrived late, but he waited for us to explain everything. I can only agree to recommend the appartment. And you should definitely check out César's bistro.
It was a pleasure to welcome Cesar in Berlin. He was friendly, reliable and left the apartment in perfect condition. We hope to be his hosts again soon.
O César e o grupo que o acompanhou foram impecáveis.
Independentemente da minha falha de comunicação, devido ao numero de telefone errado, penso que a experiencia correu lindamente e deixaram a Casa do Retiro como a encontraram.
Teremos todo o prazer em voltar a receber o grupo.
César and his family are very Nice , polite , tidy and easygoing
It was a pleasure to meet them
O César e os seus amigos, foram extremamente correctos e simpatiquíssimos.
Cumpriram com tudo o que foi acordado e cuidaram da melhor forma do apartamento que deixaram perfeitamente limpo e arrumado
A very close and sweet friend, totally trustworthy and always willing to help you finding the brightest side of things! Also, he's a great host on any ocasion and he probably knows much more about interesting spots in the city than all the fancy guides put together! I know his house and I would reccomend it any time: central location in the oldest and more beautifull part of the city, in an old and very charming building!
Gracias Cesar por todo, por solucionarnos todos los problemas y recibirnos tan bien, asi uno se siente como en casa. Un fin de semana increible en Porto
César is a person who loves to travel! Methodical, organized, friendly, helpful ... It is certainly an excellent host!
The house is very beautiful and has a great location and price. It is right in the heart of the city. Undoubtedly, a excelent option for those who want to make good use of the time to visit one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the world!
A great guest makes a great host! César and I met as fellow weekend guests hosted by a common friend in the north of Portugal. He is extremely friendly and thoughtful, and as excited to get out and explore new places as he is comfortable with sitting down with a glass of local wine and talking to new and old friends. As a Porto native, he's sure to have great advice on seeing the city while avoiding the tourists, and he can also tell you about other beautiful places to visit in the north of Portugal. Also, rumour has it that César knows a little bit about Douro wines - so make sure to ask!
O apartamento é excelente e bem localizado, superou minhas expectativas. Recomendo.
