Good location, spacious apartment
Submitted: November 2, 2011

This is good apartment in a quiet residential neighbourhood. It's an old building, in an area of architectural interest. The apartment itself is stylish, and spacious. It is quiet, and away from the city but travel in is very easy and cheap - we tended to use the bus. We didn't meet the owner, and didn't manage to get a problem with a door knob (couldn't shut one bedroom door) and a light sorted out - we were there for more than a week - but otherwise everything was fine. You'll be advised to get there by cab from the airport which costs about 15€. The owner will give you a good map for finding the building.
There is a small local cafe just down the road which is great for breakfast, and plenty of supermarkets for food. Local restaurants are cheaper than the city centre, we recommend the Paladar Zen - vegetarian buffet but very good even if you're not a veggie. And relatively new on the scene, the 'we hate tourism' tours are wonderful - we did the all day trip to Sintra. The Gulbenkian is close-by, and a great place to chill-out on a hot day.
This is an excellent apartment for a family, for a city-break or for a longer stay as a base to explore Lisbon and its vicinity.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review Sue, I really appreciate the time you took to write it. I'm happy that in general you seem to have enjoyed your time in Lisbon and your stay at my flat. I take all customer comments extremely seriously. Therefore, I'm very sorry to hear of any kind of problem during your stay. The efficient and expedient resolution of any type of problem is very important to me. The reason why I was unable to meet you is because I was away in London at the time of your stay. I have spoken to the company that managed your booking on my behalf whilst I was away and there seems to have been a misunderstanding between you and them. Nevertheless I have stressed to them that any type of misunderstanding is not acceptable and therefore, I do apologise for any inconvenience to you. Hope we can meet on your next visit! Warm regards, Pedro
