This apartment on the second floor has 4 bedrooms and one of them is this small and cozy room . It is plenty of light and ventilation - it has a big double-glass window. I like the curtains, the high ceiling and an old family closet. Under the single bed there is a spare one .

The space

It has taken me 2 years of hard work to remodel the flat and my aim is to make you feel at home, not to be a guest but someone that comes back to a friend’s place.
There are two single beds in each room, a living - dinning room, kitchen, 2 bathrooms, a WC, and a balcony where you can drink or smoke. On a centenary building, this vintage apartment, with art-deco details, is my choice to live in Oporto and host friends.
Rooms are not shared if someone is alone and they are perfect for travellers and families with children older than four…

Guest access

Do what you want without disturbing the others, make you own meals or enjoy our free breakfast (from 7 to 9:00 am) or have the "pequeno almoço" in an excellent bakery at the corner, wash your clothes if you need or just rest after a day of discoveries in the city. Watch TV or surf on the internet (wifi covers the whole flat) . There is also a quiet living room in the attic with a bookcase and a snug sofa. Feel at Home !!

Interaction with guests

I like to share experiences and socialize with guests although I also respect when they just want to rest and have some privacy. The fact is that I am always disposable to help them during their stay – I live on the place. There are maps available in the living room and I like to give tips about places to eat or buy at local shops.
I would like to make your stay in Oporto a pleasant trip :)
Please feel free to contact me for any additional info.

Other things to note

Old buildings in town seldom have lifts and this is not an exception - there are stairs to reach the second floor. Nevertheless I will be here to help with your luggage.
There are fans in the rooms in Summer and on cold days electric heating is available.

My friend and I had a great stay at Jose's place! It was just as described, comfy and homey, and a great location. Walking distance to town and all the main attractions. Jose was very helpful giving us great directions to his place when we first arrived and giving us tips for around Porto. Highly recommend a stay at Jose's place!

José welcomed me so warmly, arming me with a list of recommendations of places to see and even taking me for lunch at his local cafe just after I arrived. The homemade jams and freshly brewed coffee started me well for each day of exploring Porto and José's beautiful home was a fantastic base, located in a quiet and safe neighbourhood within walking distance of the city centre and the major sights. I would definitely recommend this place.

This was my first time I used Airbnb and also my first time in Portugal. This first experience was absolutely perfect thanks to the lovely and hospitable Jose and his nice apartment. Jose is a superb host and made me feel welcomed from the second I arrived until I left. He is a great source of information regarding Porto and things to see away from the main tourist spots and thanks to his invaluable tips he made me fall in love with Porto. Jose, for the six days I stayed at his place, was always on hand for any questions I had. The decor and furnishing of his flat are very tasteful, colourful and quirky and make the place very cozy and atmospheric. The flat itself is exactly how it is described on the website and was in immaculate condition at all times. The location couldn't be better; very central. I loved my room and I slept very well because the mattress was very comfortable. Jose is very genuine and caring person and I would love to stay with him again. Thank you Jose for a great stay and a fabulous time I had in Porto !

Having just returned to England (to grey skies and rain!) I already miss the warmth of Porto and the even warmer welcome I received from José, my incredibly kind and caring host. My late flight meant I didn't get to the flat until the evening, but José had waited up for me and greeted me with smiles and kindness and the unexpected offer of supper. I really appreciated being shown around the flat and the brief explanation of where to find anything I needed, what to expect in the morning (a hearty breakfast of fresh bread, home made jams, cheese, fruit and great coffee awaited me!) and the important details that would help make my stay in the flat as easy and pleasant as possible. Having this information as soon as I arrived just put me at ease and meant that the next day I could start my holiday with no complications and make the best use of my time in the city. José's apartment is perfectly located (if you follow his very helpful directions, it's about two minutes walk from Lapa metro station, which is on a direct line from the Airport). I took the pleasant 15 minute walk every day to arrive with ease in downtown Porto, and, once I'd worked out how to avoid the bigger hills, really enjoyed the walk home in the evening, into a neighbourhood that felt very safe. Very close by are supermarkets, cafés, banks, boutiques (hairdresser!). Everything you could ever need, but just a little away from the main tourist area, so it felt very relaxed. The flat itself is beautifully cared for, tastefully decorated, practical, well organised, neat and clean and has everything you could need (including two excellent showers!). I felt as though, if I'd thought of anything else, which wasn't immediately apparent, that José would have done his best to provide it. He has achieved the great balance of making his home feel as welcoming and comfortable to his guests (his friends, as he likes to think of all his visitors) as possible, whilst his personality still shows through. This was so nice to see. I like to settle into anywhere I stay, even if it's for only a few days, and at José's I really felt at ease to make myself at home. Being able to put my toothbrush into the mug by the bathroom and hang my clothes up in the wardrobe in my room were just a few of the ways in which I felt I had really 'lived' in Porto, rather than merely passing through! I can't say enough good words about my time spent in José's lovely flat, or all the wonderful experiences I had exploring Porto, and I could say even more about my new friend José. If you want to feel truly welcomed, safe, comfortable and cared for, then visit José and you will not be disappointed.

My dear friend, do you know what ? You brought sun light to my place and to Oporto ! Thanks for your nice words and from my heart I say that " minha casa é tua casa " (my home is your home). Good bless you, Liz !

It's a really nice place with a Portuguese feel to it. Great location with walkable distance to all the Porto attractions, but also easy transport to the airport or train stations. Jose was a great host, he welcomed me with some traditional port, explained to me what's good about Porto and showed me where all the good places are on the map. We always had breakfast together talking about travels, which I really enjoyed. If you're looking for something quieter yet close to the centre, it's a great place to stay!

Thanks, Aga, for your nice comment. It is really important to me ! I hope you have had a nice time in Lisbon, in spite of the weather that changed a lot these last days. Have a good return to London and began work full of energy ! If you come back, be sure that you will be more than welcomed here !

José made us feel very welcome by offering us a glass of port as soon as he arrived. The room were clean and very nice, sheets and towels were provided and smelled very nice. His English is very very good which makes such a difference!! He was very keen on telling us about the good and popular restaurants around his house, as well as cool places to visit. The house is located very close (15 min) to the city center, which is really cool. Would definitely come back again, and absolutely recommands José's house if you plan on staying a couple days in Porto.
