Great location in Porto. Only 15 minutes walk to the Ribeira and the area the apartment is located in is great with loads of bars and restaurants only a few minutes away. the apartment is very clean and has all the commodities needed and Manuala was very accommodating and helpful on arrival with lots of tips with things to do. There was a few record shops really close, which was great for me, and the selection of vintage, antiques and boutique stores were great. It felt like the perfect location to be based in for our trip to porto. Un loft muy bonito y bien equipado con todo lo que se puede necesitar, incluso mapas. Dejamos el coche en el garaje de Manuela todo el fin de semana a buen precio. Muy recomendable.

Manuela (mother of Alfonso) was a great host! We had some delays prior our arrival time and she was incredible flexible and understanding. The flat is in a very convenient area, you can walk to the city centre within minutes.

Nice apartment, very spacious with a lot of light. It is located in a great neighbourhood with a lot of restaurants and bars (zenith and aduela were our favourites) near by. Manuela is a very kind host. Due to the central location it might be a bit noisy at night. We enjoyed our stay very much.

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.

I am a 65 years mother of four and also a grandmother! Born in Porto, where I always lived (I love this city) I love to travel, learn about other cultures ( I visited more then 50 countries and there are a few in my list for the next years...) When the children left and I retired I decided to use my time hosting those who want to know Porto, help them discover my City and treat them as if they were part of the family. And I am enjoying a lot doing that !! Welcome to Porto.
