The booking process was easy and friendly. I booked for about 2 months and am so glad I chose this apartment. The owners/managers are a delight, as is Teresa and the cleaning lady. The location is superb, the flat very light, sunny in the morning nd the view from the living room windows is over the Tejo river: beautiful. Walking up 2 flight of stairs is making me fit...it would be great to have a way to open the building door to visitors from the apratment and not have to walk down, but hey...that is the only point I could mention to be improved! Superb!
We had an amazing few days in Lisbon and the apartment was perfect for us (2 adults and child team aged 9 and 5). The apartment is within walking distance of many of the sights and with good transport links (trams to get around the city and the train from Cais se Sodre to get to the coast).
The apartment had everything we needed and was a great place to relax after a day's sightseeing. The kids loved being able to look out of the window onto the square below and out across the river. There was very little traffic noise despite the central location.
Filipa was extremely helpful and responsive with any queries we had and made us feel really welcome.
This apartment is in an excellent location for site seeing and access to public transport. With very effective double glazing plus air conditioning this central location in the historic centre was all positive.
The apartment was very clean, bright and well appointed with modern styling.
We tend to stay in apartments when abroad and we rated this one very highly.
This apartment exceeded our expectations! The living/dining room was very bright, spacious, and open, with nice views from four windows. The kitchen was well stocked with everything needed to cook, even though we did not use it much. The bathroom was clean and large, and had a washer. There was another bedroom in addition to the master. The bus and tram stops were a few steps outside the building. We found a convenient grocery store around the corner. I have already recommended this rental to friends and neighbors.
Beautiful apartment in a centrally located area. Convenient to most areas around Lisbon. Bright & airy with plenty of space.
We loved this apartment. Full of light and very comfortable. Everything works. The shower is good, the washing machine, easy and instinctive to use and the kitchen is well equipped. The beds are comfy (though we needed a lighter weight duvet in Master Bed for April, even with A/Cl) and towels are the right size( not those postage stamp towels they call 'bath' towels you get in hotels!) They were thoughtful enough to leave liquid soap in the bathroom and those condiments you always need in the kitchen like olive oil, salt, pepper, Balsamic ,herbs, some coffee pods for the Nespresso machine and tea etc.
Geographically, the flat is well placed. In easy walking distance from the river with all its restaurants and bars, as well as Cais do Sodre, the main station for trains and underground. Trams and buses are also very near.
We had 3 days on the beach, at Carcavelos, which is an easy 15-20 min train journey from Cais do Sodre, and we recommend you buy tickets for train the day before to avoid lengthy queues. A fab beach, approx 800m walk from station, with beach bars, restaurants etc and a lovely wide, sandy beach. Also, do the cycle (hire is literally downstairs) to Belem and get the ferry over to Trafaria (second stop) on other side of river, and cycle to the Costa da Caparica, where there is a stunning beach. We had amazing fresh fish at Kontiki, which is under new ownership and the food was divine. Another stunning beach and well worth the effort of getting there.
Go to Pavo on Pink Street for Portuguese tapas or titbits, as they call it. Lovely food and wine, but the star of the show is the Favista/Favisto singing in the evenings.
We loved our stay in Lisbon and particularly this super apartment. The staff are very welcoming and really go the extra mile to help you with all the info you need to have an unforgettable stay.
We would LOVE to return!
