An apartment for 2 or more people on the top floor of a high-rise with a terrace view of Porto and the Douro hills. 15 minutes walk from the city center and 4 minutes from the nearest metro station.
The main feature is the large terrace which has a great view of porto and good sun. Inside there is ONE main inside space of 3 by 4 meters squared which contains a double bed from IKEA shown in the photos. There are two single mattresses, and we also have two more spare mattresses to accommodate sleeping arrangements other than that of a couple. I.e. we can accommodate for friends that don't necessarily want to sleep in the same bed joined together.
We also provide towels and pure cotton sheets. There is a small kitchen and bathroom attacked to the main bedroom.

Outras coisas a ter em conta
The airport has a connection to the city center via metro so DON'T BOOK A SHUTTLE SERVICE, unless you are arriving very late at night. The last metro is normally around 00.30am depending on the day of the week.
Here are the instruction of how to reach the apartment via metro:
When buying the ticket at the airport at the ticket machine, select the option to buy the card (€0.60) along with the journey, which is 'z4' (4 zones) and it will cost another €1.80, (so €2.40 per person in total). This will suffice for the whole journey. Get on the train and stay on until you reach Trinidade station. I think it takes around 30 minutes. Then from Trindade get on the yellow line (D) in the direction of Hospital Saõ João and leave at the next station which is Faria Guimarães. Move from Rua de Faria Guimarães across to Rua de Camões via Rua do Paraíso. Once on Rua de Camões, go up the hill and the apartment is on the left hand side of the street. Number 777, 5th floor, right hand side (direito).
15 minutes walk up from the center esplanada dos aliados, it has good access to both sides of Porto. Rua Santa Catarina on the one side, which great for traditional shops, as well as cafés and bars, and Cedofeita on the other, great for contemporary art galleries, with museums and parks also close by. The historical part Ribeira is a 20-25 minute walk straight down by the Douro river.
Faria Guimarães metro station is 4 minuted walk down the hill (yellow line) and Trindade, the central station, is 10 minutes walk down the hill.
- No noise after 10pm. Report all damages to me.
