Perfect location to explore Porto. When arriving from the Sao Bento Metro stop - exit via the double set of stairs not the main exit... this will. Ring you out at the top of the hill looking down on the metro station but right by the cathedral. The accommodation is located down the main steps of the cathedral on the right hand side. Ideally situated to cross the river, and head into Porto central. Accommodation was clean and had everything we needed - coffee machine, dishwasher, mobile phone to take out and about pre-loaded with maps and top tips were welcome extras. We booked the Sanderman’s free walking tour for our first morning which was excellent. Have brunch at Do Norte - you will not be disappointed. Poke bowls at Viva Creative Kitchen were incredible. Finally lunch at Voltatia for authentic Portuguese eats. Great shops, good bars and good plenty to see. No matter what we had seen or eaten we always navigated ourselves back to Manteigaria for the best Pastas de nata - to die for!!!
