“Just as good the second time”
Reviewed October 23, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We returned to Birds Apartment for a second October visit to Lisbon as we enjoyed ourselves very much the previous time and we were not disappointed. The apartment is a comfortable size for two and is located in a quieter area but within easy walking distance of the central tourist sites, stations for Cascais and Sintra, and it has some nice restaurants nearby. Pedro was again very helpful and welcoming. Thoroughly recommended.

“A place to settle in for a bit”

Not my first visit to Lisbon, I specifically looked for a place in the Principe Real district. Pedro's comfortable one-bedroom flat fulfilled all my needs. A quiet street, close to parks and restaurants, public transportation only a few blocks walk - and away from the mega crowds that have become central Lisbon. The flat itself is painted in the cheerful yellow of the historic trams and the walls are decorated with pictures of birds and flowers - rather the theme of the apartment. The king bed is comfortable and made up with lovely white linens embroidered with the words, Birds and Flowers. One flight up in an ancient building, it is not difficult to access. The kitchen and bathroom are modern and well equipped. The place is very clean. Pedro is an excellent host, welcoming guests with Lisbon's traditional pasteis, and was happy to help with arranging taxis when needed at odd hours of the day or night. He was always available via email. One note: the flat is not air conditioned. There is a fan that circulates the air quite well, but it can get warm if the shutters are not closed against the sun. Personally, I would recommend this flat for single travelers or couples. And it works very well for a longer stay. Also, the wi-fi worked!

“A reaonable place o stay”
Reviewed August 31, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

This apartment is conveniently located and provides value for the money.

It's outstanding feature is Pedro, the apartment manager. My wife fell ill while on holiday. Pedro got us to an excellent hospital and stayed with me Sunday afternoon while we learned her fate - which turned out positive.

“A cosy apartment in a charming old street near city center”
Reviewed May 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a nice and comfortable stay in Pedro's apartment in the lovely Principe Real neighborhood. Everything was as advertised and Pedro was a discreet and relaxed but very available host. The market and pharmacy near by came in handy and the cosy Pão de Canela restaurant/breakfast place located only half a minute walk from the apartment was exactly what we wanted.

Liked best: The bed was really amazing (matress and pillows).
Liked least: Steep stairs when coming in the building, but that's old buildings.

“Perfect for two adults”

The apartment itself is old but charming. It was clean and in good decorative order and had all the facilities we needed. And they all worked.

On arrival, we were met at the apartment and given a very warm welcome and some hints and tips on where to visit in Lisbon (which was most of it in fact).

It's ideally located down from the Principe Real area close to the Praca Das Flores which seems to be up and coming with several restaurants and a craft beer bar with many beers.

We found it easy to walk to all the areas of southern Lisbon from it (but we are keen walkers). It was also easy to pick a taxi from the square (Praca Das Flores).

If there are just two of you looking for a pied a terre in Lisbon this place is perfect.

“Simple living in lovely Lisbon”

The accomodations were simple, anachronistic, but perfect. A very quiet area with local charm, close to the metro, historical sites, and museums as well as shopping districts in an amazing city. Pedro was a perfect host and after the airline lost our luggage covered the delivery back to our apartment for us so we could still go out and enjoy Lisbon and the local culinary treats. During the week we spent in Lisbon we didn't have an average meal - the food was amazing, especially the mussel place Oui. Overall the weather was perfect and the apartment was very well situated by a local park with many restaurants, grocery stores and wine shops. The only potential downside is that there is no air-conditioning so you have stay here at the right time of the year and the stairs are very steep at the entrance. We definitely intend to go back.

Super little apartment that met all our needs for a four night break in the city.

As previously mentioned by other reviews, we were welcomed by the owner who couldn't have been more helpful. She provided us with information and advice on how to best enjoy our visit, which was much appreciated.

Great little bistro on corner of street which we visited on several occasions and were impressed with quality and price!

Would certainly choose to stay there again.
