    Stunning views

    This is an amazing place to base yourself when visiting Porto/ Gaia. Go for a river view room - stunning view across to Porto and Luis I bridge. Great to people watch from the balcony. We stayed during COVID times so it was quieter than normal. The apartments are above a busy restaurant, but the noise wasn’t bad and it seems like the street musicians have to stop by 10pm. With the windows closed the outside noise was totally blocked. The apartment was really well kept. A small but functional kitchen (2 hobs, a combI-microwave, basic utensils and pans) to make basic meals in. Nice sitting area and spacious bathroom. Comfortable bed. Fatima was very helpful on reception and prepared a list of suggestions of things to do / places to see. A fantastic place to stay.

    Lovely!

    Fantastic rooms and fantastic service. I was able to check into my room early since I arrived several hours before on a flight. Everyone was so nice and gave great recommendations for dinner, etc. I loved the retro style in the rooms and they were kept nice and warm which was amazing for November while it was chilly out! You can't beat the view from this place on the south side of the river, if I were to book it again I would book the river view because it's stunning!

    an ideal base in Porto

    Perfectly positioned high quality apartments in the hub of everything on the Vila Nova de Gaia side of the Douro.Well worth paying the extra to get a river view apartment, the views are spectacular. Lots of classy touches like monogrammed linen and good qualities toiletries. No need for a car, plenty of things are within walking distance and if a wine cellar tour is part of your itinerary, they are all within a few minutes walk of the apartments. The reception staff like Fatima are extremely helpful too. All round good stay.
