The crumbling old part of Porto is, in my opinion, the most beautiful area of the city. Miss’opo is a fashionable, boutique place to stay tucked away in the heart of the charming cobbled streets. It is a multi-use space that includes a small gallery, lively restaurant and seven flats.
When the restaurant is shut it is easy to miss this trendy venue. Inside, the ground floor the brushed concrete walls provide a modern backdrop for works of art. Behind an unsuspecting door is a quieter staircase which leads to the two and three bedroom apartments.
The rooms are minimalist and modern with a few design focussed features in each room. The walls are pristine white and simple bulb lighting illuminates the room. Furniture is varied, in our flat I loved the vintage desk and chair which added a touch of character to the spacious room.
Our bathroom was a wetroom with shower, toilet and sink. Though basic, it was all we needed for a short stay in the city, though I can imagine if you were staying longer you may want something a little more luxe.
A small kitchenette gives guests the freedom to prepare food at their leisure, complete with microwave and sink. This would be particularly ideal for visitors on longer stays who wish to dine in the flat to save money. When we arrived the fridge was filled with fresh milk, butter and fruit and there was coffee and tea in stock too.
Each morning a basket of pastries and bread is delivered for breakfast. We enjoyed our simple morning meal with the shutters wide open listening to local music from the street below. It was an idyllic way to wake up for our first day in Porto.
