We stayed in Raquel's apartment (two level) during our first visit to Lisbon in March. We had 2 families--4 adults and 4 elementary aged children. The flat is in a great location. Many of the activities we wanted to do were just steps away (of course, up or down a few staircases...it is Lisbon!) and others were easily accessed by foot or metro. Lots of great restaurants and ice cream shops in the area too. The flat itself works well for a group with a dining room table and serviceable kitchen.
We had a nice week in a beautiful flat with plenty room for two families (4 children and 4 adults) in the middle of Chiado with a lot of possibilities for shopping (supermarcets and everything else), a lot of restaurants and bars, in the near of bus-, tram- and metro-stations and only 10 minutes to the trainstation. Raquel is a perfect and well organized and organizing hostess. She gave us some very good tips and always answered soon.
Well positioned apartment which makes you feel you are living amongst Lisbon citizens. Great views from the terrace.
