A Great place to stay
We have been to the Porto area five or six times now, and this is the best place we have found to stay. The location is excellent with plenty of transport choices in easy walking distance. We got very good value from our three-day tourist passes - and found that the train station at General Torres (in walking distance of the apartment) was the easiest place to buy them. With these passes we explored much of the area covered by the bus and metro system but also used the CP trains to go further afield. Food shopping was very easy. There are bakers and patisseries almost on the doorstep and the nearest supermarket is just across the road. We enjoyed walking down to the Corte Inglés for a wider choice - although the department store there is a bit too tempting. Eating out offered multiple choices locally as well as across the river in central Porto. We very much enjoyed the Carpa restaurant, just a couple of minutes away on foot, across the main road. The apartment is very comfortable and has all that you need for a relaxing stay. We cooked and ate in the apartment every other day and lacked for nothing. The internet connection was, for us, amazing. As country dwellers we have only very slow Internet and we were astonished to see something fifteen times faster! I used an HDMI cable to attach my laptop to the giant tv and had the full range of tv and movies immediately available. As others have commented the beds are very comfortable - my bad back was much improved after just one night. My only regret is that a week was too short a stay! Next time it must be two. And next time I might take a car - not to get around, as the public transport is good and inexpensive, but to fill with cases of excellent Douro wines. As a final note, Marcos was an excellent host making us feel welcome and comfortable.

Thanks Tom. Your comments are really nice. I look forward to welcome you again. Marcos Loureiro
New, modern, well decorated, basically in white and black, multiplying well the daylight to make a wonderful atmosphere. The beds are extremely comfortable, as well as the "chaise long" in the leaving room where we fought to relax. LOL Free Internet WIFI and English TV channels made the difference. Very well located. There are a supermarket in front and many bus stops and a MTR station as well. We took usually 10 minutes by MTR or Bus to arrive at the Centre of Porto. There are also a bus stop for the city tour (hop on, hop off). Very convenient place to discover Porto and the North. We did appreciate our stay in this apartment and we recommend it.
Excellent apartment, located at the heart of the city in the main avenue, at very small distance from the historic centre and touristic area. Easely rechable by a few bus lines and MTR, Porto downtown at 5 minutes by MTR, supermarket just in front, in the other side of the avenue. The apartment is new, modern decorated and match the photos shown in the Web site. The beds are really confortable. Very clean, very well maintained, and the light in all the apartment is very good as it's facing South and West. Despite the weather that was windy and rainy, our stay was excellent. Thanks Marcos for the warm welcome.
