The apartment is ideally situated for visiting Lisbon. We left our car in the next-door carpark for the duration of our stay and visited the city on foot and by taxi. The building is old but the flat has been beautifully modernised. It is on the second floor without a lift but the stairs are not difficult. The sitting room is large with two big, comfortable settees, ideal for relaxing after a tiring day. Beds, bathrooms and kitchen Equipment are all excellent. There is a supermarket nearby, but also good restaurants if you don't feel like cooking. We hope to take the apartment again in the future.
We spent 5 nights in this gorgeous apartment at Rua Almirante Pessanha, 1. The décor is lovely (MUCH more beautiful in person than in the pictures), and the apartment spacious (especially the marvelous living area). The beds are comfortable. And the LOCATION IS OUT OF THIS WORLD—at once close to the sights and blessedly quiet. All the lovely restaurants of Chiado are mere moments away on foot. So are the interesting food spots in the Bario Alto. This place is just around the corner from a beautiful square bordering the ruined Carmo Convent. A few steps further and you are at the top of the Santa Justa Elevator with all the gorgeous views.
So YES the apartment itself is exceptional. BUT EVEN MORE EXCEPTIONAL was the care and kindness of shown by our hosts! From first communication to taking care of ordering a taxi for our run to the airport on our last morning, Pedro could not possible have been nicer or more helpful. He greeted us with warm custard tarts, port, and with an encyclopedic knowledge of Lisbon, all set down in a very complete guest notebook which he walked us through. Pedro was available by text when we had questions, and reached out to check on us on his own initiative when we didn’t. Seriously, I would recommend ANY of the apartments run by CourtesyMorning Apartments based on our experience with this one. We are frequent vacation-apartment renters (going back more than a decade) and we know special when we experience it—this one is special!
As a seasoned traveler or stay at Ana V's
Apartment was among the top 2 of all time!
First of all Ana was so patient and spent time with me talking about Lisbon, arranged for airport pickup and return, nicely stocked with basic amenities and provided a list of current concerts and dining areas in the neighborhood. A true concierge service!
Then the apartment! Photos do not do it justice! Gorgeous, immaculate, comfortable
And although the entry door is very unassuming next to a garage, it is fabulous inside. In the best location! Total cuteness, quaintness just a block from Santa Justa lookout tower.
I have run out of superlatives and exclamations. Thank you Ana! We will return.
Perfect location, beautiful, elegant, clean, and big apartment, true to the pictures, nice comfortable beds... great owners, very well organized...next time, I am staying here again...
The apartment is excellently situated in the historic centre of the city. It is very well, and tastefully, furnished and well equipped. A lovely comfortable and convenient place to stay.
Anna, the owner is exceedingly welcoming and helpful,
One point is that the area is popular at night and although the windows are double glazed, if you are sensitive to noise, it may be a good move to have earplugs. I had some and slept well in the comfortable bed!
Our family of three stayed here for 8 nights over Christmas and it was perfect in every way - location, space, amenities and decor, not to mention the extremely polite, responsive and caring owner Ana. It was close to everything we needed and very quiet during the day and at night thanks for dual-paned windows. It was cozy and comfortable and we would recommend it to anyone and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
