Reviews of this property
Hosts Elisa and Luis own a treasure here.
Wide authentic wooden stairs lead up to a high ceilinged, modern, light and comfortable apartment. Wooden shutters and windows open up to a small balcony. One can pull a chair over and observe evening life as the church accross stands in floodlight; city dwelling at its' best. Not to worry about noisy traffice, Elisa provides air plugs that work wonders.
Apartment sits over the family bakery, who provide lovely breakfasts. 2 Supermarkets at walking distance for home cooking. Kitchen well equiped. Many nice places to eat out in the vicinity.
Slight problems with wifi-code which owner was more than willing and able to sort out, even during our short stay. Then again, who needs cell phones, when the river and the rowing boats can be watched, interesting guided city tours be taken, push bikes be rented for a good paddle along the river and ocean shore to nearby Espinho.
Well thought out night entrance, separate from bakery ensures full accessibility to apartment 24/7.
When we needed a sewing kit, we found one! when next we needed first aid kit and band aids, they were there!
Die Wohnung ist sehr schön und gut eingerichtet. Die Lage ist sehr zentral und die wichtigsten Orte von Porto sind gut zu Fuss erreichbar. Gute Restaurants befinden sich in nächster Nähe. Der Kellner beim Frühstück war sehr freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit. Angenehme Gastgeber.
Schade, dass die Fenster undicht (nicht schallisoliert) sind. Draussen herrscht ein ständiger Lärmpegel: Strassenbahn, Busse, Autos und lärmende Studenten bis tief in die Nacht.
Reviews for this host's other properties
My mom and I stayed at the apartment for 5 days and we really enjoyed it. The apartment was spacious and clean and there was a cosy balcony. The host was really nice and welcoming. The locations is perfect and there are lots of nice restaurants and other things to do in the neighborhood. Even though the surroundings are a bit noisy (we used earplugs some nights), I would definitely recommend this apartment!
Great flat and the hosts were excellent!
We travelled with a 1.5-year-old and everything was very family friendly.
Would recommend it for both singles, couples and families.
Next time we are in Porto we will definately stay here again.
For us it was a pleasant surprise to find this apartment. It is in very good condition, almost new and very well located. It is a family business with service cafeteria, bakery, and soon, also restaurant. As owners, we were treated very well and with great kindness. We would definitely return. Thank you very much for everything Luis and Elisa.
El resumen es TODO PERFECTO.
Desde la llegada que nos atendió perfectamene, e incluso nos trajo más mantas porque al final vinimos con nuestra hija (y no la habíamos avisado). Elisa nos recomendó sitios para visitar Oporto y donde comer etc..
El desayuno es en la misma pastelería Primar que hay a pie de calle. Y todo buenísimo.
Sin duda volvería otra vez al mismo apartamento, porque es tal como se ve en las fotografías: limpio, espacioso, todo bien cuidado, de película.
Y además está a 5 minutos del centro, que puedes ir andando, o coger el tramvia, pero lo mejor es andar y descubrir Oporto.
Gracias Elisa por todo!
Wir waren sehr zufrieden. Sehr gute, schnelle, freundliche Kommunikation, ruhige Lage im Innehof, sauber, geschmackvoll, moderne Ausstattung der Wohnung. Die Umgebung bietet sehr viel: Restaurants, Bäcker im Haus, Lebensmittelmarkt ect.. Strassenbahn Station und Bushaltestelle liegen direkt vor dem Haus. Die Kirche ist gegenüber. Lage der Wohnung innerhalb der Stadt bestens.
