Manuela and Afonso are excellent hosts. I was in their loft for about a month and I had a pleasant stay. I was able to cook my food at times as well as work remotely due to the fast Internet. There are a lot of personal touches in this apartment yet it is not full of clutter, so it almost feels like your own space. Manuela was also very accommodating as she let me into the space early so I could drop off my bags. I would suggest bringing ear plugs if you are noise sensitive (I always travel with them) as the street noise will sometimes get loud at night. Other than that, I fully recommend this Airvnb for short or for long stays.

The flat is located in the perfect area with really great local bars & shops. Highly recommend this flat as your base to exploring the fantastic Porto. We will be back. Thank you

All perfect! Alfonso and his mother were very nice and kind. Manuela even explained us in French and Portugues where to find the good places in Porto. The street is quiet, the apartment itself clean and cozy. Go there!

Alfonso's flat is in the perfect location for exploring Porto. There are many traditional Portuguese cafes and bars if you fancy not just sticking to tourist venues. Alfonso's mother Manuele was super helpful suggesting places to visit and all over very kind during our visit. Thank you!

Our stay at Alfonsos place was great. His mother actually waited for us downstairs when we arrived. She is a really nice person and helped with the surroundings as well as some tips on what to do in porto. The appartment looks really great, u can immediately feel that its an architects work :) Located pretty much in the center of porto, we walked everywhere and you can even save the money for local transport. Access from the airport is also very convenient, take the direct train for just under 2€ and walk another 500 meters- thats it :) Perfect Host!

My name is Afonso and I'm 28 years old. I've been an Airbnb host for 2 years now and I love it!

I've lived in Porto for most of my life and every day this city continues to amaze me. In the last couple of years Porto has been growing radically, specially when it comes to tourism, and it has been a pleasure to be part of it. Fortunately, this growth didn't affect the city's truly unique charm. It only turned it more dynamic!

I'm really passionate about traveling and I've already visited more than 30 countries (and counting). But when I am not traveling what I really enjoy is welcoming people from around the world.

I really appreciate getting feedback from all guests. This will help me continue to improve my hosting skills.

Hope you enjoy Porto. See you soon!
