Best AirBnB experience we have ever had. The place, spotless, the communication, responsive and thoughtful, the value unbelievable. We loved that Alexandria's friend Carolina spent at least 30 minutes showing us all her recommendations on a map of Porto. The restaurant she suggested, adega s nicola, reminded us of restaurants in Portofino, fresh fish, great wines and Ports, and delightful service. All the people of Porto were so welcoming. We definitely plan to come back!

I fell in love with Alexandra's flat and I wished I had stayed longer! It's a small apartment but the space is very cleverly used and it's all decorated with lots of taste. It's well located and has shops and restaurants at short walking distance. We didn't meet Alexandra but were welcomed by Francisco who was very welcoming and took the time to share tips and addresses with us. Definitely a great Airbnb address that we will re-use if we visit Porto again in the future!

A truly delightful apartment. Well designed, finished, equipped and located ... and all immaculately clean. I was met by the host's friend, Carolina, who provided a brilliant crash-course in the touristic and culinary highlights of Porto - the purchased guide book was immediately redundant. I already want to go back ...

Very well equipped apartment and perfect for 2 people. High quality beds, which is always a plus. Within walking distance of the metro and the centre of Porto. We had a great stay there and recommend Alexandra’s place highly.

You would be hard pushed to find a better Airbnb in any city, not just Porto. The flat is a perfect little spot in a cool yet comfortable neighbourhood. Alexandra’s communication from out first contact through to her welcome on arrival was above and beyond and she made us feel very welcome. Would stay here again if I returned.

Hello!

I am an architect and independent curator based in Porto. I have studied and lived in Berlin, Zurich and Paris, and it is always a pleasure to welcome guests from all over the world and share with them what I know about Porto!
Hopefully, this city will be one of those places you will not forget!
