“Good Location, excellent host, cosy but bit small”

We - 2 adults + 2 kids (11 y.o. + 1,5 y.o.) stayed in Jaime's place for a week. Jaime is a great host, despite trouble with our flight he agreed to pick us up at 1 a.m. and has been very paitient, even when we locked outself out :).

The flat is well equipped and in perfect location (close to stores, restaurants and cafes - everything you might need during your stay). However it is a bit small if you need to spend some time in it and all four want to be at one floor.

The apartment is located at 3rd floor so bare it in mind if you don't feel like climbing the stairs all the time (but honestly than you should aviod Porto as such)

“great location, apartment, host and city”
Reviewed 4 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

rented this apartment to meet up with my daughter and her almost 2 year old, so they had the top floor for his afternoon sleeps. Great location: up the Hill to some sights, and down the hill to train station and the water. View over the RW station which delighted the 23 month old, as did the number 22 tram outside the door. Well located for eating and visiting and walking, and Jaime very helpful with information and tips. His restaurant recommendation superb and we were lucky to be there over St Joao Day/evening, plus the win by Portugal in Euro soccer, plus boats, fireworks and fun with plastic hammers! highly recommended. And Jaime answered my many questions with patience, and rang to check we were on the way as my daughter's plane from Canada was very very late.

“Excellent apartment, great value”
Reviewed 14 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed in this apartment for 3 nights. It was perfect - spacious, very clean, bright and airy with fantastic view over the Cathedral. Fantastic location, 5-10 minutes walk down to the river/Ribeira, and around the corner from the main Sao Bento train station and the main shopping street Rua Santa Catarina with great cafes and bakeries.

Jaime was a fantastic host and provided great suggestions on what to see, do and what to eat and where to go out.

Thank you!
