This appartment is in an excellent location to enjoy Porto. It is extremely well equipped and is immaculately clean and well maintained. The service provided by the owners was first class. We loved sitting out on the balcony watching all the people and the boats we wouldn't hesitate recommending this property and would certainly stay here again when we return...

Spacious, stylish apartment w/ all the comforts of home, including washer and refrigerator. Located a stone's throw from Douro River & steps away from view of Dom Louis I bridge, port cellars across the river, and restaurants and shops below. Management went above and beyond in helping us w/ our particular requests. Excellent wifi.

All amenities in place, nice TV, excellent bed and kitchenette, etc. The only little setback is the noise in...

If you want a sense of being part of the atmosphere of Porto, choose this apartment. The room was spacious and clean with quaint charm of the building and the surroundings. The windows open right up to full-scale living with the action of the streets. It is great walking distance to the square as well as the other side of...

This has to be the nicest apartment I've stayed in. Perched atop a tower right in the middle of the Ribeira district, it has wonderful views of the river from the balcony and is situated within range of a great selection of restaurants, bars and cafes. Because it is on a busy square, it can be quite noisy first thing...

We stayed at Portosense apartments for 7 nights and had a great time. The views from the top floor are amazing. The apartment block is situated right in the middle of the Praça de Ribeira and very close to restaurants, bars and historic sights. The port cellars are just a stroll across the bridge. The staff couldn't have been more...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
PortoSense apartments are ideal for a romantic getaway, family holiday, group of friends or simply a work trip.We offer privacy, space and comfort with the added-value of feeling as if you were in your own home.In Praça da Ribeira, a stone-throw away from the River Douro, you can feel the History: in the fourteenth Century the naval construction filled this port and these narrow streets with movement. It is one of the most visited places by tourists.The recently renovated PortoSense building is easily recognized by the magnificent fountain from the eighteenth century which stands outside it, built in the 1780’s and decorated with Portugal’s Coat of Arms. Cook your own meals in an intimate and relaxed environment, or go out and enjoy the huge variety of restaurants, bars, tapas and typical taverns which you will find nearby by walking through the Cais da Ribeira, up to the Mercado das Flores, Infante, in the direction of the city centre, into Avenida dos Aliados, Praça S. Domingos, Rua Galerias de Paris, where you can be surprised with live music and a very fun nightlife. ... more   less
