Reviews of this property
It has been a pleasuse to be at Toc toc estudio because Hugo helped us to feel at home. I recommend you to know Oporto with this wonderful host.
The studio was really great. It is in the old town, very close to everything that a visitor wants to see. And it its quiet at night and in the afternoon the sun comes into the room :-).
In the studio was everything we needed, from Portwine to tablet - fully equipped. And Hugo gave us a complete introduction about Porto. Next time we come to Porto we will contact Hugo again.
Reviews for this host's other properties
Pros: The studio is very well located, ery central, easy to acccess, very modern and well equipped, the owner was very thoughtfull and attentive, all was good there.
Cons: The studio is very small, and not comfortable for 4 people, 2 guests would be very comfortable, but no more, once the sofa is open the space is tight.
The shower is faulty, badly finished, we were unable to shower, we only were only able to use the tap; that needs fixing asap
We had a great time in Hugos Apartment. It is realy central and there is everything you need. Hugo has also given us some some good tips for the town.
Hugo is a great host! He waited for us to arrive in the middle of the night. The apartment is beautiful and in a perfect location. We inmediaty felt at home and will definitely book this apartment again the next time we will visit Porto.
I would recommand this apartment to everyone! :)
Hemos pasado unos dias increibles en Oporto, el apartamento es super moderno, acogedor, no le falta detalle, la ubicacion es inmejorable, y cuenta con un parking en los bajos del edificio que es fundamental para todos los que llegamos en coche.Hugo ha sido el mejor anfitrion, facilito la entrega de llaves, nos recomendo los sitios turisticos, donde comer, los mejores dulces.....nos sentimos como en casa en todo momento.
Sin duda lo recomiendo a todo aquel que este pensando visitar Oporto.
Een aanrader op elk gebied: locatie, inrichting, host!
Sehr gepflegte Wohnung, sehr zentral. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Von hier aus konnte man sehr gut die Stadt erlaufen und die Umgebung von
Porto erkunden. Hugo hat uns sehr freundlich begrüßt und uns gute Tipps gegeben. Auch im Vorfeld gute Kommunikation: So hat er uns ein Taxi organisiert, das uns am Flughafen abgeholt hat.
Absolut saubere Unterkunft! Gute Ausrüstung. Kommunikation mit Gastgeber unkompliziert und klar, zuvorkommend, schnell. Lage: super central und trotzdem sehr ruhig.
