“Pampered in Porto”
Reviewed 3 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

My husband and I recently returned from a two week trip to Portugal. During our trip, we spent three nights at this lovely, spacious Top Flat apartment. It does indeed have an amazing river view. It is in a very old but nicely renovated building. It has beautiful hardwood floors, a nicely decorated bedroom and living room area, and the kitchen and bathroom is very much up to date. It is comfortable and located in a great area. It is only a short (but very steep) walk down to the Riverwalk or up to the town center.

The two leasing agents we dealt with were terrific. Monica, the agent we dealt with while we were in Porto was very helpful. We had texted her prior to our arrival, asking for her help in procuring tickets to a football (soccer) game that was held the night of our arrival. Monica actually went to a store to purchase the tickets for us the day prior to our arrival and had them waiting for us when we arrived. Monica also arranged taxi service for us to and from the train stations since we did not have cell phone service available while we were there and phoned a laundry for us to check the hours that the laundry was open.

We loved our stay at this Top Flat apartment and would definitely stay there again!

“What a Gem”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Top flats is nothing short of awesome! Right in the middle of old town Oporto, this beautifully renovated building has everything you could ask for and more.
We had the top floor apartment, well worth the stairs to reach it. It was modern, spacious, spotlessly clean and the view of the river whilst sitting on the terrace was spectacular!
Patricia, is a class act indeed, and arranged a private taxi transfer for us from the airport and was very helpful with places to visit during our short but sweet 4 days in Oporto!
We has no hesitation is recommending Top Flat to any independent travellers out there, who want to get a feel for the old town but then sit and relax after a few to many ports in one of Patricias wonderful apartments!

“Style+Comfort+Quiet+View+Location=Perfect!”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

Impressive from the moment you enter Patricia’s building – she’s retained some interesting historic elements of the building and created modern stylish apartments within. We had a 1 bedroom for 3 nights, the apartment was lovely, comfortable, quiet and had a terrific view too! Just like the pictures.

The living space had a big table for the laptops, big LCD TV, and kitchenette with bar seating. We didn’t do much cooking, but the espresso machine and the cooktop came in handy. Very comfortable king size bed (2 twins together), big bathroom with plenty of space to put your things. Even a washer, which we didn’t use. Two quiet air conditioning units, it was a pleasant temperature in Porto when we were there the end of May, but rained off and on one day and we used the air conditioning to bring the temp and humidity down. Enjoyed the view up and down the Douro from the 2 windows. The bedroom was on the opposite end from the view, over Rua Francisco da Rocha Soares, but this street does not have any traffic and we slept great here.

Great location, 10 minutes walk to everywhere! Patricia was very helpful, tips on places to eat plus arranged a taxi to the airport for our Saturday morning departure, which arrived right on time. Loved the apartment, a great place to explore Porto from and come home to. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

“Gorgeous apartment with superb view of Douro river”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Wonderful 1-bedroom apartment in the historical part of Porto by the Douro River (Miragaia). Superb views of the river and of the opposite river bank where the Port wine caves are located. Flat is decorated with elegance, equipped with a full kitchen including microwave oven and coffee machine. Fast Wi-Fi connection, cable TV, air-conditioning/heat and spacious are standard. The owner Patricia is awesome - she recommended a few restaurants out of the touristic path, they were outstanding - Caraças (walking distance), Valentim (Matosinhos), and so forth. There are quite a few restaurants in this area. There is a small supermarket down the steep street with all the essentials. Porto has one if the nicest subway networks; S.Bento station is within walking distance, around 800m.

“Absolutely spectacular appartments, view and welcome!”
Reviewed 27 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We stayed recently in two of the "Top Flats" in Porto and, having arrived back home after touring the North of Portugal, I have to rate our experience there as one of the most memorable of the whole fabulous trip.

The flats themselves are amazing - space, decoration, light, comfort, style and.. VIEWS! Just took our breath away to look over Vila Nova de Gaia illuminated right in front of us, and the gleaming Douro a few minutes walk away. The owner, Patricia, could just not be kinder and more generous with her time, including helping to organise a surprise birthday party for one of us!
It was a truly wonderful experience and we want to go back; Porto is a fantastically beautiful city - staying in Top Flat allowed us to see it at its most stunning. Our warmest thanks to Patricia.
