“Gorgeous apartment with superb view of Douro river”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Wonderful 1-bedroom apartment in the historical part of Porto by the Douro River (Miragaia). Superb views of the river and of the opposite river bank where the Port wine caves are located. Flat is decorated with elegance, equipped with a full kitchen including microwave oven and coffee machine. Fast Wi-Fi connection, cable TV, air-conditioning/heat and spacious are standard. The owner Patricia is awesome - she recommended a few restaurants out of the touristic path, they were outstanding - Caraças (walking distance), Valentim (Matosinhos), and so forth. There are quite a few restaurants in this area. There is a small supermarket down the steep street with all the essentials. Porto has one if the nicest subway networks; S.Bento station is within walking distance, around 800m.

“Absolutely spectacular appartments, view and welcome!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed recently in two of the "Top Flats" in Porto and, having arrived back home after touring the North of Portugal, I have to rate our experience there as one of the most memorable of the whole fabulous trip.

The flats themselves are amazing - space, decoration, light, comfort, style and.. VIEWS! Just took our breath away to look over Vila Nova de Gaia illuminated right in front of us, and the gleaming Douro a few minutes walk away. The owner, Patricia, could just not be kinder and more generous with her time, including helping to organise a surprise birthday party for one of us!
It was a truly wonderful experience and we want to go back; Porto is a fantastically beautiful city - staying in Top Flat allowed us to see it at its most stunning. Our warmest thanks to Patricia.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

Not only the view over Porto and River Duero was amazing, the flat itself is just GREAT! Nicely decorated, clean and most important; the beds are very comfortable. The owner, Patricia is very helpful and kind. The flat is within walking distance to the center of Porto and some very good restaurants. We can highly recommend this accommodation.
