Cleanliness, location, comfort, view, and availability and responsiveness of staff.
Disliked: The fact that we had to prepare the Breakfast on a daily basis. We thought a few items were missing such as sugar, salt and paper, honey and milk. Other than that, it was a great stay and experience.
Almost too good to share
Wonderful stay in Porto. The apartment was not only visually stunning - perfectly renovated in a historic building and appointed with taste and discretion - but it was well-located and spotlessly clean. The manager, Alida, was a perfect host. The refrigerator and pantry were well stocked with organic, healthy staples. Fresh bread was delivered in the morning. Alida provided recommendations for restaurants and port cellars, which we followed and were delighted with. Especially enjoyed Viva Kitchen (a few doors down) and Croft cellars.
We fell in love with Porto, in large part due to our stay at B28 and Alida’s warm hospitality.
Great view. Excellent daily servicing of the apartment. Wonderful touch of bread, milk, eggs, fruit and yoghurt for us each day!
Just advise other renters to be aware there is no lift in the building.
Nous avons adoré
La beauté, la grandeur du studio.
La proximité 150 m du centre
Disliked: Éclairage public très puissant éclairant toute le nuit la chambre malgré les tentures
Alida is the best host. She met us and helped get our bags up 4 flights of stairs. Food was provided in the fridge for breakfast. Great views over Porto. Great location near the river. The bed was more comfortable than my own. Alida was available online for requests and recommendations.
Gorgeous open and light room close to everything but in a quieter street.
Excellent appartment, spacious with a personal touch in a newly renovated traditional building in a perfect location. Fine interior design, very polite and friendly hosts who care to provide a memorable stay in Porto. Much preferable choice than an impersonal hotel.
Absolutely everything! Alida is incredible and made us feel home, accommodating all my needs from the first moment. I'm travelling with a toddler and she immediately arranged me all I needed for my daughter, even cute little books for her to play. The place itself is beautiful, amazingly well kept and clean and the location for those visiting the city couldn't be better. Quite frankly one of the best places I've been throughout the world, I highly recommend it and don't have one single bad thing to point it out. Oh! And they always make sure to leave you little treats on the fridge such as fresh fruit, youghurts, coffee, tea... From now on my place to stay everytime I come back to town.
This property is truly a gem. My husband and I had a great experience with our 3day/2night stay.
The place was nice and clean. It’s a great size bed, a good size area for dining, and a couch to lounge on. It had a kitchen so we were able to cook quick breakfast before leaving for our everyday walks around Porto. In the pantry, there is a bag of coffee, tea, cinammon, nuts, etc... and fresh breads and pastries in a bag by the door greets us in the morning. In the fridge, there is a box of eggs, fruits, yogurt (all organic). The bathroom is well kept. The aroma of the hair and body wash is fab. I normally bring my own hairdryer during trips because of my hair’s thickness, but they have a good one that worked perfectly. I should mention, I got spoiled by their 4-ply bathroom tissue.
The location was near to 90% of the places we wanted to see. So, its a perfect spot for travelers and vacation seekers.
In the morning, it was an easy area to try nearby coffeeshops but since we had great food already in the property, we saved the trip of breakfast hurdles.
At night, the property is a great spot because you can go to the restaurants nearby which is literally a minute of walking and yet you don’t get bogged down of the noises.
When we searched for Google photos of the facade, it still showed the old property. In actuality, it’s a beautiful big green door which is twice the size of a regular house door that leads to 3-4 flights of stairs. We stayed at the second floor. And it was lovely.
Zeer mooi appartement! Heerlijk ruim! Leuke locatie!
Extremely cosy place with perfect location. All the history is 15-20 minutes available. The view from the 5th floor is astonishing, you have a chance to observe the river, church and roofs of the neighboring buildings. Flat is furnished with brand new furniture, kitchen has all necessary and is also new. Host is very helpful and fast to reach in case of need. The best place to stay in Porto. I am totally in love.
View from apartment light and airy.
Posizione perfetta, in pieno centro. 10 minuti a piedi dalla fermata della metropolitana per aeroporto.
Tutto il centro raggiungibile a piedi.
Pulito e curato.
Le confort, les conseils touristiques et l’emplacement.
Disliked: Peut-être un peu de bruit venant de l’extérieur (mouettes le matin)
The location and beautifull appartment.
Grosszügiger, modern eingerichtetes Zimmer. Es fehlt an gar nichts und auch das Frühstück ist vielseitig - Früchte, Joghurt, Cereals, Kaffee, Tee, frische Brötchen. Nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin. Zentrale Lage.
Disliked: Etwas Strassenlärm, nachts ruhig
Great location superb bed and a beautiful studio. Lovely welcome and great hospitality.
Gorgeous. Central. All around excellent
Location. Design. Breakfast. Service. All excellent. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous. The renovation meticulous. It’s so great to stay in such a lovingly restored building. Also make sure the breakfast is included in your booking. We had fresh bread and fruit delivered to our room in the morning when we did as well as local organic eggs, yogurt, and cheese.
Buen lugar para estancia 3-4 días
La ubicación inmejorable. La cama buenísima, utensilios de cocina y escasez de ruidos.
Cuidado con el parking porque es todo de pago. 2.40€ por 2horas.
Disliked: El desayuno no nos parece suficiente. Tuvimos que comprar leche, y desayuno para cada día. Luego derepente nos subían pan a la puerta de la habitación, pero aún así el pan solo no es suficiente.
No hay television (no nos importó pero puede que a otros si).
I have a travel business so I travel about 60% of the year. B28 has been by far the best place I have stayed in years, for many reasons. On a scale of 1 to 10, it is a 20. The manager helped with quite a few personal problems I had (a doctor was arranged), and she was incredibly helpful in selecting the best restaurants. The apartment is very, very new: an old building renovated beautifully. The most comfortable bed I’ve slept on in years. Beautiful linens. Perfect location. Great price... it really is where you should stay in Porto.
Disliked: I didn’t like leaving!!
Comfortable gracious and spacious
Warm hospitality. Spacious and beautifully fitted out. A heritage building restored retaining it's original aesthetic. Great attention to detail. Delicious, consciously sourced bits for breakfast. Great position. It was a treat to stay in such an historic building. For the discerning traveller.
The beatiful and (very!) clean appartement is located in the best area of Porto, you can reach everything by foot. We got fresh fruits, cheese, coffee and some portuguese snacks for breakfast. The hosts are very nice and helpful. Our stay was truely a great experience!
Beautiful apartment, organic breakfast left each morning by our lovely host Alida was a real treat.
Old Porto at its best
Welcomed into a stunning spacious renovated old apartment in the old city but on a quiet street. Tony terrace with local views. Accommodating host. Delicious cake left for us in the modern kitchen complete with dishwasher and stylish crockery and appliances. Best apartment on our Portugal trip. A walk to all the sites.
Fantástica estancia en Oporto
Tuvieron el detalle de dejarnos estar más rato porque nuestro vuelo no salía hasta la noche y nos dejaron quedar en una habitación.
Disliked: Si hubiese tenido ascensor.
A beautiful home in Porto
Beautiful renovation, decorated in a comfortably chic style. Great bed, full of light, and in a great location. Our host, Alida, took great care in attending to all the details. The fridge was stocked with yogurt, berries, and fresh orange juice; there was fresh bread left on our door in the morning; and the building even smelled lovely. We felt cared for and at home during our week in Porto.
Tutto perfetto: appartamento nuovissimo e pulitissimo. In zona centrale su una via interna molto carina e vicina a bar, ristoranti e principali attrazioni. Grandi finestre con balconcino per chi desidera fumare.
Pulizia quotidiana e colazione in appartamento con prodotti freschi. La proprietaria Alida è gentilissima e molto disponibile. Ci ritornerò sicuramente.
Consigliato a tutti: coppie, famiglie o single.
Prezzo onestissimo e disponibilità anche solo per brevi soggiorni. Top!
We enjoyed a week in a very special piece of paradise!
Our host Alida was amazingly warm, and went out of her way to ensure our stay was all it could be. Perfect!!
A cidade do Porto é um lugar Da localização, modernidade do apartamento e da atendente.
Disliked: De ter que ir embora. Perfect!!
2 nights in Porto
18th century building with amazing renovation. Flat was fantastic.
Everything was perfect!
Soo nice apartment. Loved it. Beautifully renovated with a fabulous view. Very nice bed linen.
A pearl in Porto
I enjoyed the beautifully renovated appartment, which is shining from cleanness and style. Due to its location - best fresh pastries, local market, tasty restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance + breathtaking views from the top appartment to the city - one of the best accommodation experiences. Also children loved to stay in this old and mysterious building, which they thought was magical - playing hide-and-seek and inventing stories kept them busy, while observing the birds on the rooftops. First timewithin our tours in European cities, we preferred staying in the accommodation, instead of staying out and exploring the city. The appartment itself is a sightseeing.
Finally, we were spoiled by our host who provided us with carefully picked breakfast items (one of my kids loved pasteis de nata’s) and warm welcome.
Suurepärane kogemus - soovitan soojalt!
Everything was perfect.
The building is gorgeous. The owner is so passionate about its preservation. It has an amazing history and a great atmosphere. The room was very tastefully decorated. You have a lot of privacy here. The location is excellent.
Disliked: Check-in was a little difficult because it was a public holiday and there isn't someone who is permanently at the property. So we texted back and forth quite a bit. Breakfast was very basic. I wish the room had some more ventilation.
