About ORM - Oporto Rental Management

Oporto Rental Management was created in 2015 by the wishes of four young friends: Rosa, Tania, Igor and Nuno. The ORM was born of the combination of the main passions of its founders: the city of Porto and its cultural characteristics; the architecture and decoration; the gastronomy and photography and, above all, the contact with different cultures.

The project is based on the support and guidance of property owners located in the center of the city who want to direct their homes to the tourism market.

It also involves the design and decoration of these same spaces, giving them a unique identity that translates into the extremely positive reaction of our guests.

Our project culminates in the total management of the property, which includes the organization and preparation of these spaces for the tourist rental.

So with our dedication and daily work we have been able to please our guests who show the highest intention of repeating their experiences with our team.

In addition, besides the management, we are responsible for the constant guests' contact and that we privelege the personalized accompaniment - what distinguishes us and allows us a greater proximity to the diverse cultures.

Alex was very helpful in showing us where the best restaurants, markets, and sites were located. His local knowledge steered us into lovely places that were fun to explore. The apartment had all the amenities one could ask for and was easy to get to and close to everything.

Apartamento estupendo, se nota reformado y limpio, bien distribuido y acogedor con todo lo necesario. Como pega...las ventanas entra mucho ruido (se oyen muchas gaviotas por las noches), las toallas son muy pequeñas (A las chicas, o nos tapan por arriba o por abajo) y la calle en la que está es tranquila pero cuando llegas...hay gente rara, da un poco de cosilla.

La situación es genial, junto a la catedral y parte de arriba del Puente Luis I. Y a 15' de la plaza de los Aliados. Hay que tener en cuenta que la ciudad tiene muchísimas cuestas...que en el plano no se ven 😉?.

Lo importante, volvería a repetir en este apartamento. El coche pudimos dejarlo en la calle todo el fin de semana, por las noches hay mucho sitio debajo, y si vienes en tren, la estación San Bento esta al lado y la de autobús también.

La persona que nos atendió al llegar, muy amable, con consejos de visita y restaurantes muy aprovechables.

Owner's Response: Muchas gracias Noel! Para su buen comentario y por estar con nosotros! En el apartamento, ofrecemos un conjunto de 2 toallas para cada huésped, una toalla corporal (1,40x0,70) y una toalla de cabeza. En el cuarto de baño hay disponible un pies y una toalla de mano. Además, ofrecemos también un conjunto de comodidades para cada huésped (champú y ducha de gel). Las gaviotas son una característica de una ciudad con río y mar. Hemos mejorado nuestro apartamento con ventanas de doble cristal, por lo que los huéspedes podrían tener una buena noche de sueño. La calle del edificio de apartamento es tranquila y con poco tráfico. El apartamento está situado cerca de un hostel, que es común cruzar cerca de algunos jóvenes y jovencitas. ¡Eres bienvenido en cualquier momento! Todo lo mejor ... El equipo ORM.

Located in a residential area, the 140m (1 minute walk) from the grand Porto Cathedral and the famous bridge D. Louis where you can enjoy a breathtaking and unforgettable view of the historic Ribeira Porto and modern Cais de Gaia, divided by the imposing River Douro. You can also visit on foot the main sights of the city, as well as the area where are the cafes, bars and entertainment venues.

Points of interest:

- Porto Cathedral (140m / 1 min walk)

- Luis I Bridge (350m / 3min walk)

- Rua de Santa Catarina - Majestic Café (550m / 6min walk)

- Avenida dos Aliados (400m / 5 min walk)

- Ribeira (650m / 7 min walk)

- Church of St. Francisco (750m / 8 min walk)

- Bolhão Market (1km / 15min walk / 5 min metro)

- Clérigos Tower - Lello Bookshop (650m / 7 min walk)

- Church of Our Lady of the Carmelites (900m / 12 min walk)

Just 150m lies the Funicular Guindais that more than a simple means of transport is an excellent opportunity to make a tour between two monumental areas of the city, the battle and the Ribeira, while enjoying a superb view of the river Douro and Luis I Bridge

For those who want to know the most distant places of the city or the country, or simply for those who prefer to use public transport, metro station and train St. Benedict is only 250 meters (3 minutes walk). Both stations are connected to the most important points of the city and the country.
