We stayed one week in beautiful Porto. The apartment is on the east side of Bolaho market, right next to the Metro station with a direct line from the airport. We arrived a bit early and called Ana. Ana is a very nice host! The apartment is on the first floor towards the back of the building. It disposes of everything people would need, including a big balcony. We also had sufficient towels. Wonderful! The bed is very comfortable and when it becomes hot the apartment stays pretty cool. For breakfast and snacks we recommend the Bolaho Cafe right across the street which we visited daily. Upon our arrival at the airport we had bought 3 Day Andante tickets for public transportation. We used the busses no. 502 and 202 from Trinade station (5 minute walk) to go thru town to the Praia. There we caught bus 500 going from Matishinos all along the beach via the Rebeira up to Sao Bento or Aliados. The Douro ribeira is a 20 minutes walk downhill from the apartment. When returning in the evening we could use busses no. 901 and 906 bringing us back to Bolaho market with a two minute walk to the apartment. On the other side of Bolaho market there are two small supermarkets. We can really recommend the apartment in this central ideal location.
We had a great time in Ana's apartment. It's super cosy and clean. Ana is a lovely host. She gave us tips what to do in town n we would have loved to stay a little longer.
We had a wonderful time in Porto. The flat is so nice and very comfortable. We were in the middle of the city. Nearby is everything you need. We had a very warm welcome and we would like to come back again :)
Lot of Greetings from Germany from Monika and Michael
We've spent 5 days in Porto. The appartement is perfectly located in the city center of Porto (just next to the market and metro station). We've contacted the host (Ana) by phone since we arrived approx. 20min. before the advised time. She arrived straight away and handed over the key...everything all in all we absolutely can recommend the place:).
The flat is in perfect conditions, clean and located in a quite street and near to the centre of Porto. Moreover Ana is super kind and helpful... she enjoyed our brief staying and is a perfect host! Five-stars review :)
We stayed for 3 nights in the apartment. We had a very pleasant stay in Porto and the apartment. It is very well located and well equipped. Ana give us a very friendly welcome in the nice apartment. Restaurants and places for breakfast are nearby. As well as the shopping area and Metro. Because it is in the middle of the lively centre it was noisy at night.
Ana and her Sister, María, are really kindly, the worry about us a lot, her apartment is like a five stars hotel, really nice, quiet and well situated. I will recomend it to all my friends. Thanks a lot
Ana's a sweetie, and her flat is spotless. Had to come back to help us oldies figure out how to work the ultra-mod hotplates! Great location, close to stores and buses.
The apartment in the rua do alexander braga is a really nice piece of old Portugal restored up to a modern level of expectations. Ana was really friendly with us despite the fact that we let her wait for us 2 hours more than announced. Thank you for the hospitality. We will definitely come again.
There were two in this apartment, which is located in a beautifully renovated old building and really well furnished. The kitchen is well equipped.
The windows of the apartment are to the back yard, so it was also very quiet at night.
Unfortunately, there is no elevator (3rd floor), but the there are in this wonderful old buildings, unfortunately, rare.
We felt at home here incredible.
Great location - about 20 minute walk to the Douro and 5 minutes to the train station (from here runs the Metro, for example, to / from the airport).
Ana is a great host / host - super nice and very helpful. She was very flexible with respect. On arrival, which really helped us.
Ana - Thank you for everything, we had such a great time in Porto !!! We would love to come again ...
Wir waren zu zweit in diesem Apartment, welches in einem wunderschön sanierten Altbau liegt und wirklich toll eingerichtet ist. Die Küche ist sehr hochwertig ausgestattet.
Die Fenster der Wohnung liegen zum Hinterhof, es war also auch nachts sehr ruhig.
Leider gibt es keinen Aufzug (3. Stock), aber den gibt es in diesen tollen Altbauten ja leider selten.
Wir haben uns hier unglaublich wohl gefühlt.
Tolle Lage - ca. 20 Minuten zu Fuß zum Douro und nur 5 Minuten zum Bahnhof (ab hier fährt die Metro z.B. vom/zum Flughafen).
Ana ist ein toller Gastgeber/Host - super nett und sehr hilfsbereit. Sie war ausgesprochen flexibel bzgl. der Schlüsselübergabe, was uns echt geholfen hat.
Ana - Thank you for everything, we had such a great time in Porto!!! We would love to come again...
