Patio was great. There was mildew in one bathroom. Comfortable beds. TV service was down when we stayed. Lots of space and location was awesome. Owner friendly and helpful.
Extremely large space-perfect for groups. Owners were extremely helpful when we had some unforeseen complications with the arrival of some guests. Very responsive.
The apartment is located within walking distance of all the major attractions in Porto. It is also just a short walk to the metro station. We were even able to walk to the bus station for our departure.
The apartment is very spacious. We were a party of 8, and could spread out and not feel cramped. The terrace in the back of the apartment makes bedrooms in that part of the apartment feel extra spacious. There is an extra toilet accessible from the terrace that is a huge bonus for a large group.
Mario and his wife Maria were very generous hosts. They met us shortly after our arrival and explained all the essentials. Mario met all our needs / requests during our stay. For example, when we needed an iron, he had the staff drop off an iron and an ironing board the next day. When we needed suggestions about a beach outing, he suggested a beach, best way to get there, and best places to eat in that neighborhood.
I would highly recommend Mario's B&B Porto Downtown, especially for a large group/family.
