    The location was very good. In the city center, near to everything at walking distance. The wifi connection was very bad.

    Nice new apartment. Did not like that there were no elevators to 3rd floor and that second bedroom was in a small loft area with very low ceiling

    Perfect for families!

    We couldn’t recommend staying here more. We were treated like family and Lia was so accommodating. She was essentially a travel agent for us as well and went through lots of detail on suggested itineraries and even booked a tour for us. The place itself is close to a train station, shopping and restaurants, but set far enough out that is was very quiet for our 3 and 1 year olds. Our apartment was spotless and beautiful.

    Love it! Would definitely return!

    Amazing amazing experience staying at Insitu!!! Our check in was a bit later than we were told but despite check in issue, room was amazing compared to other rooms at this rate in Europe, it was super clean, front desk was friendly and we could leave out luggage there until check in time. Beautiful room with kitchen , very close to bolhao market and catalina street. Just 20min walk to the riverside and luis bridge. Would stay here again when I go back to Porto
