We stayed here for a long weekend in Porto. Great location to explore the city. Apartment is located above a port shop and is high above the street. We found it very comfortable for two couples and the facilities were generally good. There is a lovely patio area but its overgrown with weeds (some poisonous) and needs improvement. Long climb up the stairs to get to the flat and so not recommend for less able. Access is through the shop and so you have to raise and lower shutters to get in and out. Doors and door knobs caused some problems in the flat. You need to be strong to open and close them and doing this quietly is very difficult. TV shows all the channels you don't want to watch and no subscription channels (usual problem). WIFI was good. So, great location and only small things detract from an otherwise great rental.
We all really felt at home in this house. It was beautiful, comfortable and super clean. Not everything was perfect, some doors were really jammed and did not close properly and there were a lot of steps ( I mean really A LOT!!!!), but these details did not make our stay less enjoyable. Dona Isabel ( the owner) was super nice and gave us good advises and we really felt like we were in my Moms house.
Things to be aware: you came in and out of the house through a port wire bar and then you have to climb 2 set of stairs to come in the house. If these things bother you you this house is not for you, otherwise I totally recommend this house. And the location couldn't be better. Historic Rua das Flores, close to everything.
We enjoyed our stay in this touristy street, the house was quiet, spacious, lots of stairs to climb to the apartment, but no-one else in the building (apart from port bar on ground floor). It could do with a kettle, and iron, and a few finishing touches, but we found it comfortable and relaxing. The port shop on ground floor were lovely too, and helpful. Supermarket round the corner, river five mins down hill, station five mins along the street, very handy for everything. Lots of restaurants on same street. The back yard is quiet and sunny most of the day, but a bit overgrown. Very Porto.
Apartment very pretty, in accordance with the description, ideal location.
We had no inconvenience during our stay
The owner, Isabel and the bar staff were very friendly and helpful.
Obrigado para eles e para a degustação de vinho do Porto.
