porto airbnb review
April 25 – May 5, 2023
We love, love, love this flat. It feels huge, though it’s probably about 1,500 sq. ft. It’s just laid out really well, with plenty of seating options on the main floor, giving us different areas to eat, work, relax and watch TV (which is plenty big).
It has two bedrooms on the top floor — we used one for sleeping and the other for organizing our things. Our bed was very comfortable, as was our room. While the flat comes with air conditioning, we just opened the upstairs window at night, which cooled it off plenty. There’s a ton of storage space for hanging clothes. And they left us extra towels and blankets.
The rest of the house was also comfortable without air conditioning — we just closed the blinds when we left during the day and opened the windows when we got home.
The kitchen is good-sized and well-stocked, with equipment, cooking supplies and matching plates, silverware and glassware. Even Tupperware, which we don’t see very often in Airbnbs.
It’s also super central. It seems like just about every place we wanted to go was a 15-minute walk, except for restaurants and groceries, which were even closer. The street is also very quiet, even with the windows open. As a bonus, there’s some fun street art outside the dining room window!
We recommend this place without reservation and would live here if Portugal (and the hosts) would let us.
