My daughter was attending a piano festival with classes held at the Conservatory. This apartment is just a five minute walk away. It is also very convenient to Casa da Musica. This is not the touristy part of Porto, but even that can be just a pleasant 25-30 minute walk though wonderful backstreets full of great local restaurants. Would definitely stay here again. The apartment has everything - stove, oven (that also doubles as a microwave, refrigerator, freezer, and dishwasher. It is well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and utensils. There is an electric kettle to boil water in and a toaster. There's a medium size grocery store about a 5-minute walk away that has pretty much every supply you would need. And every corner, it seems, has at least one small café/bakery where you can pick up pastries. The front desk staff speaks good English, is there 24 hours a day, and is very helpful. There is a great taxi kiosk in the lobby where you can just press a screen to call a taxi that will arrive in 5 minutes or less. The shower in the apartment is also nice, with god water pressure. About my only small complaint is that the light in the bathroom could be brighter and there could be one or two more convenient electric plugs around the apartment. We stayed in an apartment with a bed and a couch that converted into a bed. The bed was comfortable and the sofa bed more comfortable than expected. The apartment had two balconies. The roof area with chairs and coffee machine is great!
