Porto is a beautiful city. We had an amazing view directly on the river. This is an old historic building do not expect a luxury hotel and you will be just fine. You can not beat the price for the view and location. Apartment was clean and met our needs. Luis was very accommodating. He met us at Sao Bento station and walked us to the apartment. A true gentlemen born and raised in Porto.

We stayed over a long weekend at Luis place . He really was most helpful with all details regarding transfer and use of apartment . The flat is in an amazing area . Choose this place if you want a place with character that has spectacular views with really touristy area underneath you . Near all attractions and amenities . The inside is as described not modernised and basic , quite a small apartment but it was more than adequate for us and the vow and location certainly compensate for this . Bakery around corner for breakfast and a vast array of restaurants at reasonable prices to eat in . There was some noise at night due to the location , bars nearby and seagulls from early morning but I would highly recommend this apartment .

Luis apartment is perfectly located directly in front of the river! The view is amazing!! Though it is in the middle of everything it is quite. We could sleep very well. The apartment is small but cosy and has everything what is needed. We could highly recommend staying at Luis place. On top, Luis is an amazing host, he cared a lot and explained everything extremly clear. The communication was brilliant! Thanks a lot, dear Luis!

We had a fantastic three night stay at Luis's apartment. We are two friends travelling together. Luis had excellent communication throughout and met us at the Metro station to take us to the apartment. We found that the heater was broken during our stay and Luis replaced it straight away. The location is perfect, with amazing views of the river and the bridge. There are great bars and restaurants nearby as well as some of the sights and good public transport links. The heritage tram goes from near the apartment to the coast, which has lovely beaches and beach bars. The bed was very comfortable with great wifi and tv. We would recommend Luis's apartment and it would be perfect for a couple.
