Style Notes

Vintage chic. The 100-year-old building was sympathetically renovated in August 2016, keeping many of the original features, such as the wooden floors, elegant windows and high-wall skirting boards. Much of the furniture is handmade and adds a vintage feel, contrasted by sleek modern touches. Portuguese designed and handmade furniture such as the mustard yellow sofa and the vintage armchair lend this place a cozy vintage charm, while furnishings like moulded chairs and modern Portuguese designer illustrations provide contemporary counterpoints.

The apartment is in a fantastic location in the historic old town, just up from the river and close to many shops and restaurants. It’s very busy and noisy outside, but the windows shut out so much noise and it felt quiet indoors. Our host met us on arrival to show us around and was super helpful. They left a box of toys out for our two boys which they loved! And there was loads of space for a family of 4. There’s a proper kitchen so we could do snacks or breakfast easily too. Our kids loved taking the cable car ride on the other side of the river, and the museum of discoveries.

We were warmly welcomed by Raquel. The place is fantastically situated and decorated, well kept, on a very well refurbished old-time building. The apartment is spacious, well-lit and equipped with quality items. Had a minor setback with the toilet that was quickly solved (in less than 2 hours!). Everything went very well and I wouldn’t have second thoughts on recommending it.

Awesome travel experience at Old Stone Flat. The flat is so cute, the design and style is really modern, simple decoration and really comfortable. The location is terrific, at the heart of the city center, close to everything: river, historical buildings, shops, restaurants, tram, ... we parked the car and enjoyed walking around the city. Gabriela was an incredible host, she is really thoughtful and we could check she loves to carefully manage every aspect of the flat. She made the most of our staying in Porto. Kids didn´t want to leave the flat. Gabriela is also a great "turist guide" she gave us lot of tips and recommendations about the city; we enjoyed following them!. The only drawback of the flat is one of the bedroom doesn't have a window for ventilation but was still quite comfortable for a short staying. Highly recommended!

Hola! Estamos felices y encantados con nuestra primera experiencia en Kid&Coe El apartamento era precioso y estaba muy muy bien ubicado, en pleno corazón de Oporto y muy cerca de todas las atracciones de la ciudad. De un lado, cafeterías, tiendas y restaurantes y del otro, el acceso a la ribera del río. Queremos agradecer a Gabriela y especialmente a Teresa, por su cálida bienvenida y por los detalles a nuestra llegada. Hemos estado como en casa. El apartamento es realmente bonito y cuidado y teníamos todo lo necesario para hacer de nuestra estancia en Oporto algo inolvidable.

This apartment is very well located in the city's historical center, and provides good security from the busy street with an exterior door and elevator access. The rooms are bright, clean and simply decorated; the rear bedroom doesn't have a window for ventilation but was still quite comfortable. A bin of toys kept our small kids entertained during down time. For adults, this location is terrific and there are restaurants, a small market, and a bakery immediately at hand. There is also a pleasant playground a few blocks away, and the riverfront and historic sites provide lots of family entertainment. The cobbled streets of the historic city are hilly and bumpy, which makes using a stroller a challenge, but we found we didn't need one to enjoy the neighborhood. The host, Gabriela, is very well organized, and provided many recommendations for restaurants, activities, and services. She responded almost immediately to all our questions and was extremely helpful in organizing car transfers. We felt safe, comfortable and cared for as guests here.

We had a fantastic time at the Old Stone Flat! Great location, design/layout of the house. Gabriela has been an amazing host. She gave us great tips on what to do with kids in Porto and her guide was all we used during our 4 day stay. The flat was very comfortable for our family and loved the big windows, the open plan kitchen and the beautiful furniture designed by Gabriela. We would definitely stay at the Old Stone Flats again. Thank you Gabriela for the time you spent on giving us all the wonderful tips on your city!
