Great location, excellent apartment

  • 5 of 5

We met with Filipa at the apartment early . She allowed us to change, leave our luggage and get ready to head out the into the day. She welcomed us and showed how to operate everything. When we returned, the apartment was cleaned and ready for our stay. The location was in the Alfama and easy to go to any of the sites. Lots of coffee and morning goodies right around the corner.

Fantastic location and apartment

  • 5 of 5

Communication with the owner, Filipa was excellent. We arrived at the apartment later in the evening and that wasn't a problem at all. We just loved this apartment for its location (Alfama area) and it was very comfortable with all the amenities required. Lisbon is a wonderful city to explore. We highly recommend staying at this apartment.

Short but enjoyable

  • 4 of 5

With this being our first trip to Lisbon, we found the city to be to our liking. The apartment its self was perfectly advertised, it was clean, tidy, presentable, cosy and has everything that we needed for the short stay we had their. The owner, Filipa, was polite and extreamly helpful. The added bonus of there being a pleasent and reasonably priced restaurant - bar, Frei Papinhas, next door was an added bonus.

Central location, clean and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this apartment. The owner was busy when we arrived early but had a friend meet us to keep our luggage while it was clean. All sorts of tourist information available. The tram stop is right in front. You could tram to the metro but we chose the walk. Lots of streets to explore and restaurants were great. Views are tremendous just a block away at a large public square. There is a washing machine in this apartment which was appreciated. It was a perfect home away from home for us

Place was in a great location, on ground level, roomy and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

Filipa was a welcoming and accommodating host. Although I never met her (due to a family emergency), she made sure a friend greeted us and that we were set up and informed. Her place is in a great neighborhood (close to Castelo de Sao Jorge), with restaurants, shops and bars nearby, as well as transit options. I highly recommend staying here!!!
