- Horário de silêncio das 22 h às 09h
Joaquim and his wife were excellent hosts. They really took their time to explain everything about their apartment and location and brought us gifts of bread and oranges. Even encouraged us to have lunch after a long journey before checking in and patiently waited for us to return some two hours later. Then spent more time with us making sure the car was secure in the underground garage and we were ok with everything. Had a question later about the hob (my error) and Joaquim offered to come straight away. Said it would be his pleasure and he meant it. This was on Saturday evening. Thankfully it wasn’t necessary but the desire to please and help was impressive. The location was perfect for us. Outside of the main “tourist hell’ of downtown Porto and for us, the lovely stroll into the centre was more about the walk than the destination - takes less than an hour - probably around 6k to centre. The tram will get you to the centre I believe in less than 20 minutes. Great supermarket close by (El Corte Inglés) - 500m. Swimming pool close by too. The building has a night porter and set back from the main road so nice and quiet. All in all a good stopover for us before heading back to Lisbon.
