There is 24 hour security on the front desk. Everyone there was friendly and helpful - language, advice, taxis, luggage storage. There's not much around - this is not a tourist area - though Mercado Bom Successo has great food and bars, Continente is a modern supermarket, and Casa Agricola and good bar and restaurant. But it is a 7 minute, 5 euro taxi ride to anywhere central, and very much cheaper than staying central. There is a taxi terminal in the lobby; we never waited more than 5 minutes. Apartments are cleaned 6 days pw and are spacious and comfortable with aircon. No smart tv; we had a Roku which worked fine. A great choice.
My family ( 3 adults and one child) stayed in the apartment for one week. The building is about 10 years old and is well maintained. There is 24 hours reception. The receptionists are always polite and helpful, actually they are the security of the building. The apartment has a living room, a study room and a king size bedroom, separable by 2 sliding doors. There is a bathroom and toilet in the bedroom, and another toilet in the living room. The kitchen is fully equipped, including washing machine. There is a big balcony at living room and another smaller one in the bedroom. We open the doors of balcony and enjoy the cool breeze and Sunlight of Portugal. Please close the door by evening as there are mosquitoes. The surrounding is extremely quiet , safe and quite clean. The Shushi restaurant on the ground floor has closed due to pandemic. There are only small café nearby. The underground car park has lift going directly to the apartment. We drive our car to the supermarket(Froiz) and McDonald , Pizza Hut ( 3 minutes drive, just exit the roundabout). There are enough parking space in the downtown. …
Due to COVID-19 our travel plans were quashed. Antonio was very helpful with our booking and arranged for no cancellation fees to be charged. Much appreciated. This is more than we can say for other establishments where accommodation was booked.
This was easily our best value in lodging during our two weeks in Portugal. You get an approximately 900 square foot modern apartment with two bedrooms, 2 baths, two TVs, WiFi, a kitchen and even a washer/dryer. For less than 100 euros. Parking is in an underground garage for a modest charge. The location is close to the Metro (5 minutes) and a grocery store is also close by (also 5 minutes).
If you can get this apartment in Porto when your planning your trip then DO IT. Literally 5 mins walk from the metro station which will take you anywhere in Porto and 10-20 mins walk from some of the most beautiful Porto sights. When we go to Porto we stay here. In my opinion this is fantastic value and location. The reception staff are also so helpful. They spent 20 minutes with us explaining the maps and about how to navigate the city properly. The parking was also a major bonus if your traveling around Portugal in a car and is very secure underground.
