Marvelous Charming Apartment (D)
|Address||Rua Antero de Quental, 4050-056 Porto, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
Our apartment is located in the heart of the city, in the Lapa area, just 1,5km away from Aliados square, 1,7km from Boavista area and 2,5km from the riverside.That means you can easily move to the old district of the city (Baixa) or the new and commercial area. You will be staying in the middle of both.
The building has more than 100 years old and was recently renewed and decorated for tourism purposes. All of them have a totally equipped kitchen, a resting area with sofa, TV (and cable), dining table, equipped bathroom, natural light and free WI-FI around the apartment.
The apartment has heating and refrigeration system but no air- conditioning. Please be aware that the building has 3 floors and no elevator (due to construction limitations). Children are also welcome and we have cribs and baby chairs available (under request and free of charge). The apartment on the 1st floor is also suitable for persons with walking disabilities (there are no stairs or steps to the apartment).
Within a few steps you have all the commodities you might need: a local supermarket, bakeries, cafes, a pharmacy, a bus and a metro stop (among others). Porto is usually a safe city but like anywhere else you should take some precautions with your belongings. Prices: the price includes renting, welcome staff, equipped house (including linens, towels and kitchen amenities), cable TV, energy costs (gas, water, electricity), bathroom amenities and Wi-Fi. We can provide private transfers from the airport with a local taxi (according to availability).
Pets are not allowed.

The apartment was very nicely furnished (quasi-one suite to the double room price) It is in a prime location but by the day, unfortunately, with corresponding traffic noise (was not like a vacation in the countryside). People who want to cook in the apartment should rent something with a larger kitchen. Cooking is but in Porto no sense, since there is already lunch menus for € 5. Best of all was taken care of by Daniela (an employee of Joao) organized us a taxi transfer and everything worth knowing declared in the best English.
Die Wohnung war sehr ansprechend eingerichtet ( quasi eine Suite zum Doppelzimmerpreis) Sie ist in bester Lage aber dadurch tagsüber auch leider mit entsprechenden Verkehrsgeräuschen (war ja auch kein Urlaub auf dem Land). Menschen, die in der Wohnung kochen möchten sollten sich etwas mit größerer Küche anmieten. Kochen macht aber in Porto keinen Sinn, da es schon Mittagsmenüs für ca. 5 € gibt. Am besten war die Betreuung durch Daniela (eine Mitarbeiterin von Joao), die uns den Taxitransfer organisierte und alles wissenswerte in besten Englisch erklärte.
We enjoyed our stay very much; Ribeira surrounding the situation and equipment in the apartment are very suitable for getting around town. We are very pleased with our visit to Porto
Hemos disfrutado mucho de la estancia; la situación cercana a la Ribeira y el equipamiento del apartamento son muy adecuados para moverse por la ciudad. Estamos muy satisfechos de nuestra visita a Porto
Very nice apartment, ideally located in the heart of the city. Just a few minutes walk from the river. Joao was a very pleasant Gastegeber and has provided us with lots of information and best care of us.
All in all a great stay.
Sehr schönes Appartment, optimal mitten in der Stadt gelegen. Nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß vom Fluß entfernt. Joao war ein sehr angenehmer Gastegeber und hat uns mit vielen Informationen versorgt und sich bestens um uns gekümmert.
Alles in allem ein gelungener Aufenthalt.

Joao is a great host! He answered all our questions and was always available if we needed help. The apartment is very nice and well situated, near all the attractions. I would go back without a doubt!!!
Impressive flat, one large room that is easily enough for four (non-snoring :-) ) people, 4m high ceilings in a restored old city building. Two bathrooms, one outside in a small courtyard. The flat is on the back side of the building, so no view but the interior is very beautiful with interesting new design elements. 5 min walk to the river and the old town near the Douro bridge; ask Joao for good restaurants, he knows some very good places with honest prices and excellent food. Joao, you have made our stay in Porto an unforgettable experience, you have been a wonderful host.
A very friendly and enthusiastic about his start host helped us with many tips. The apartment was very well equipped and ideally located to explore Porto.
Ein sehr freundlicher und von seiner Start begeisterter Gastgeber half uns mit vielen Tipps. Die Wohnung war sehr gut ausgestattet und ideal gelegen, um Porto zu erkunden.
