We were the lucky persons to be the first guests in this apartment. And this will be my first review at tripadvisor!
We went here with 7 friends,age 32-38 a weekend with the girls. The area is really a great place to stay for people who like to go out. Very nice restaurants and bars in the area. I'd suggest to go have some dinner at Maio for some traditional Portuguese food. Nice price and good food, but nothing fancy though. But a 2 min walk from the apartment and many nice bars in the neighborhood.
The apartment has many amenities as a dishwasher and washer. The beds can be a bit hard for some one's liking. For me it was fine though. The apartment has a great atmosphere, you will feel right at home. It's very clean and the owner is very friendly :)
There are 2 bars very near the apartment which you might hear some noise. It's just around the corner the street downwards. Cause the people like to enjoy themselves outside the bars. I'd suggest you join them :) as we did!
We had an amazing time and the apartment really had a great deal to do with it! Thanks Joao for the great apartment! I'm planning to come again soon!
