    Best first time in Porto
    Excellent location, centrally located. Surprisingly close to the Se and Luis I bridge. We thoroughly enjoyed our time. It was safe. Only complaint is that the bed is quite firm... Could you please put a mattress topper or change the mattress out?

    Great neighborhood and service, awful room.
    Great location. Miserable bed and uncomfortable space.

    Deliciously warm summer nights in fantastic Oporto
    Our visit to Porto was absolutely wonderful. We did have a little trouble finding our building, but this is to be expected in the old part of this amazing city. Once we did get there we were soon greeted and after parking (free) right in front, we were escorted to our apartment. A small but modern two bedroom....perfectly equipped with everything we needed and our host got everything started with a taste of Port! A wonderful way to begin three days of exploring a fantastic place. The people are so nice, the food excellent and the wine superb. The location was next to the hilltop cathedral so it was always easy to find our way back through the maze of alleyways. It was quite warm, so the air conditioning was much appreciated and allowed us to keep out the noise a bit as we were close to the train station which was active in the morning. But it was great to be able to walk a few yards down the street and have a warm pastel de nata for breakfast! I fully recommend this place as a way to enjoy the sights and sounds of a world class city. We were sad to leave, but vowed to come back soon!

    Very Good8.0
    Cute place with excellent service. We got responses within minutes of our emails while there. Place was tidy and clean. Large bathroom. The bed was a little hard but fine. The only complaint was that there are tons of seagulls outside all night making noise. Obviously that's not the hotel's fault but we definitely lost some sleep. However, great location too and a good overall stay.

    Very Good8.0
    convenient, safe, quiet
    This room was at a perfect location. The property will need to be maintained soon (e.g., the bathroom) and the wifi was great except for slightly slow on netflix (which is normal, I think). The owners were incredibly friendly. We had a mixup with the location (they have two locations, and we went to the wrong one), but they were very helpful. They also were great in identifying sights to see and wineries to visit.
