Douro River Studios

When i found the building, where today "Douro River Studios" are located, this was in really bad shape, old and abandoned.So, when i imagined it's renovation, always thought that would be an ideal place for who wanted to visit, live and feel Porto city and it's beautiful Douro River.My intention was to create two spacious apartments, both full of ligth reflected by the river, confortables and moderns.I truly hope those could be the starting point of the discovery of this amazing and singular city!...Welcome to Douro River Studios!


Air conditioning

Free parking

Daily housekeeping



A large, spacious apartment with an incredible view of the river. Very cozy and with a special charm. Comfortable bed. A large sofa where you can spend a magical evening watching a movie, because there is a Netflix subscription available. The kitchen is equipped with everything necessary for cooking. There is a coffee maker, kettle, microwave, oven, dishwasher and kitchen equipment. The apartment is equipped with air conditioning, which simultaneously works as a heater. Easy check in and even easier check out. The owner Susana was very kind and gave great recommendations. We were able to park our car nearby for free and visit some good restaurants. There is a supermarket and a public transport stop not far from the apartment. Definitely recommend!


The location is fantastic with great views of the Douro. Despite the, in waves, traffic and the authentic tram that passes in front, you hear little about this due to the good insulation of the house. The apartment itself is fantastic beautiful, large and very practical. You could live there permanently, and that wouldn't be a punishment. Susana has done everything she can to please her guests. We have had 5 wonderful days and nights and without any doubt recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to visit Porto. Susana is also an excellent host who will contact you during your stay to make sure everything is right and if you have any questions. Totally TOP! Annex photo is taken from the apartment and shows how great the view is.


Susana's apartment was even prettier than the photos, as was the view from the gorgeous windows. It was cosy and warm on the couple of rainy days we had during our stay and we threw open the windows in the sunshine to enjoy the fresh breezes off the Douro. The apartment has so much to offer including a full length mirror (I find lots of Airbnb hosts neglect that important amenity). We really liked the neighbourhood - catch the 500 or 403 bus right out front to be in the heart of downtown in ten minutes. Or take the tram. Or walk (it took us about 40 minutes to walk home from downtown. Going uphill might take a bit longer). We felt close to everywhere yet had quiet, privacy and great restaurants at our doorstep that were not too busy. O'Rio Seafood is right below and we ate there three times in ten days. Don't miss the Michelin recommended Semea in the same block. Communication was excellent. Our only minor issue was solved immediately. Highly recommend.


Once again, everything was perfect. The view and location are amazing and the host is super reactive whenever you need something. Highly recommend!
