I will sell my house and live here
Awesome! That’s the word to describe the experience at Boavista Palace Serviced Apartments. And I could just leave it like that, but let me tell you a bit more about it.
This is not your typical hotel or apart-hotel in town. These are luxury apartments that were built to be sold but, meanwhile, where adapted to be rented for short or long stays in Porto. And this makes all the different when it comes to design, comfort and brickwork quality.
The apartments are big and comfortable and come with different configurations, from 1 to 3 bedrooms, with very nice bathrooms, dining and living area, a full (an I mean FULL) equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washing and dryer machine, ironing table with iron, lots of storage for your clothes and luggage, a wonderful working space with free Wi-Fi internet, cable TV, blackouts, etc… all the things you would have at your own place!
The apartments are serviced every day. This means that a light housekeeping work will be made, like your bed and some small cleaning. Every 4 or 5 days a deeper cleaning will take place.
I think this lodging concept can be ideal for business persons who will spend a few days or weeks in town, but also for a small family that are just visiting for tourism and like to have more space and independence that they get in a hotel. For the solo freelance traveler that needs to get some job done between tours and trips, this is definitely also an excellent choice. Anyway, they also have people actually living there!
The location is very nice, in the Boavista neighborhood, where I have lived for about 30 years. OK, it’s not downtown, two steps from Ribeira and some tourist attractions, but it’s a 5 minutes walk to Casa da Música and you have a Metro station just a few steps away from the your door, that can take you everywhere in town. Plus, you will have that non-tourist feeling of living in a more “local living” district.
And the rates? Check Boavista Palace Serviced Apartments on Booking and I bet you’ll be surprised! Just like I did… ;)
