M Republic 2 is the perfect example of how all the houses should be. Every time we think of something to be improved in a house for Erasmus Students we test it at this house. This house is located at the city center. 7minutes walking to the main Metro Station and 10 minutes walking, to the main Avenue of Porto. So we can really say without any doubt, that this house, is in fact, very well located
Then this house is equipped with some very special features:
-Fire Alarm: we have a fire alarm system with smoke detectors through all the house ( only detect smoke from real fire...it is prepaired to not trigger with small smoke, as cigarrettes smoke ).
-Fire Extinguishers: In case of a worst scenario every floor of the house is prepaired for us to extinguish a fire before it gets worst.
- Fire Hose: Just in case the thing would get complicated you dont have to be just waiting for the fireman...you can be the fireman ( well....lets hope we will never have to use it, of course.
- Theft Alarm System: Our house is protected with an alarm that is directly connected to the Alarm company for 24 hours per day, which will connect directly to the police in case the alarm is activated.
- Door Surveillance: In case something happens we have video surveillance at the door and we can always identify a stranger who enters in our building;
As you can see in this building we have been testing really good ttechnology, to provide you a house with all the possible safety we can provide. Even if everything would fail by any reason, we have an insurance that covers all the damage that you could have in case of having fire or that the house would be stolen. But we dont even worry with that, because it would have to be James Bond trying to get inside without being seen, and still we think he would fail ;)
This house has amazing common areas. It is a 4 floor building, very traditional portuguese building, with an entrance made of portuguese tiles having natural sun ilumination through all the house.
These is the house that made us proud because it is here that we provide all these features that we always defended that a host should provide.
