I was well armed with a lot of positive Trip Advisor and Hostel Bookers reviews before booking and they were spot on! Paula is an incredible host and she made our stay in Lisbon the success it was. Her rooms are decorated very kitsch and pretty and I was lucky enough to stay in the pink room which even my boyfriend thought was lovely!
Her breakfasts are divine and she makes better crepes than I ever could. It seems weird at first eating cake for breakfast but now I'm back in London I really miss a good spread first thing in the morning!
The house is very old and so there is no elevator/lift in the property so please think carefully whether 3 flights of stairs are ok for you. The rooms are decorated very well despite being an old property and the attention to detail is just lovely. I've never seen garden gnomes in a kitchen but that's part of the fun!
Paula will give you great advice for your stay, letting you know when monuments are closed or how to save money on public transport. She's also great fun to talk to when you fancy a wind down after a long day.
Funnily enough I booked to visit Lisbon in Feb for valentines day and my birthday next year because I had such a great time. :) Lisbon is lovely, everyone should visit at least once.
