Unfortunatly, Manuel wasn't able to receive us at the agreed time (Emergency),
but after a while Manuel en his nice wife Theresa welcomed us.
Manuel and his family live in a beautiful appartment (10th floor) in Vila Nova the Gaia, a 15 min walk from Porto centre.
We've had a "Majestic" Breakfast (5 euro pp), a great bed, a VIP Private bathroom, Manuel gave us good local information, a cityplan to discover the city, Theresa did even our Laundry!
We thank Manuel, Theresa and the 3 boys for their wonderfull service and hospitality.
Manuel is the best host you can imagine. He knows all the history and the places you should visit! He gäbe me a warm welcome and made me feel like visiting friends. If you visit Porto I would recommend to stay at Manuel and his very friendly family!

We realize that we will trust Manuel for our next visit. //Manuel y Teresa son excelentes anfitriones. Hacen todo lo posible porque te sientas cómodo en tu estancia. Además Manuel explica pacientemente muchísimas indicaciones para que tu visita a Porto sea lo más provechosa posible. La habitación es de alta calidad, limpia y con vistas excelentes. Tenemos claro que volveremos a confiar en Manuel para nuestra próxima visita.
Manuel es un anfitrión muy amable y atento. Cuando llegamos a Porto, Manuel nos explicó que había tenido un incidente con los inquilinos anteriores que habían roto algo de la habitación que se suponía debíamos alquilar y, para que estuvieramos cómodos y no tuvieramos ningún contratiempo, nos ofreció la casa de su madre, toda para nosotros, sin ningún coste adicional!!!! Además estuvo disponible en todo momento y, tanto él como su familia nos hicieron sentir como en casa. Lo recomiendo sin ninguna duda, no os arrepentiréis!!
B&B in modern appartementsgebouw. Het is goed te vinden als je weet, dat het behoort tot het complex van hotel Holliday Inn in ht stadsdeel Gaia (nabij warenhuis Cortes Ingles.
Host is behulpzaam. Hij regelt veilige autostalling, draagt bagage (voor ons/senioren), geeft tips over eetgelegenheden in de buurt van B&B en bezoek aan de stad Porto. Slaapkamer met uitstekende bedden.
Dit was onze eerste ervaring met een B&B in Portugal, door landsaard en taal geheel anders dan het Duitse "Zimmer frei".
We boekten zeven nachten, maar zijn helaas na twee nachten vertrokken wegens het zeer slechte weer. Dus een financiele strop.
Verhouding prijs/kwaliteit is uitstekend.
Reviews for this host's other properties
Thank you, Manuel! We enjoyed to be at your apartment and felt like visiting relatives. - In a quiet neighborhood of Porto at the 10th floor of an apartment building, we had an own room which was separated from the rest of the apartment through a corridor. The room is very cozy, clean, including everything that is necessary and next to it was the bathroom. In walking distance, we enjoyed some fantastic Pastel de Natas in a cafe and next to it was a restaurant with delicious authentic Portuguese food. On our whole trip, we haven't found any better Francesinha. Consider not to order too much, as the portions are very large. Walking a bit further downhill will lead you to all the famous port wine cellars. A port wine tour at Taylors is recommendable. We enjoyed being there.
Manule was a great host who informed us about the city. The room was nice, clean and big, the bathrooom was shared. The public transport was far around 5-6min.on foot, recommended a map. This area the price was friendlier -1Euro for a hot chocholate,coffee - and you can find a lot of nice Cafes with local biscuits. If you walk 10-12 Min to the river, you can find the cruise opportunities with wine tasting. If you do not like walking, I recommended the Porto ticket for public transport.
It was a great accomodation for a couple.
