Don't expect your security deposit back

  • 1 of 5

The apartment is located about 20 minutes walking downhill to Lisbon center (Rossio). Pretty well equipped - cable TV, WiFi internet, Washing/Drying machine. There is no A/C or heating - 2 portable heaters are used for heating, one of them does not work well. It could be noisy at times when people returning from restaurants at 2-3am.

Overall, I would give it 4 stars if not the dishonesty of the owner. After I asked for security deposit refund I was told that we made damages and left the apartment "extremely dirty". In fact, we've even cleaned it before leaving and made pictures to prove it. I also believe, the damages, if they even really existed, were not made by us.

Owner's Response: .I think I need not say that this comment is not fair! After so long receiving guests who were extremely satisfied and consider us friends, surely the problem is not in our conduct. The damage existed and were made during the stay. No one takes pictures for later use them as evidence !!!!! And they were taken at check in or out? For us it ends here. All other reviews are satisfied customers. We have just received a comment that says (among other things) "La proprietaria è stata con noi molto disponibile e cortese, una vera signora". In english = The owner was very helpful and polite with us, a real lady"

Comfortable apartment close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in this comfortable apartment in the Principe Real neighborhood. Everything you need is close by: restaurants, bakeries, small grocery stores, even a mini-supermarket. The fully equipped kitchen makes cooking some meals easy.

This is a great neighborhood if you like to walk but also close to public transportation so the rest of Lisbon is easily reached. We slept well but also had a nice place to catch up on email and reading on the one day it rained.

Appartement agréable et bien situe

  • 4 of 5

Accueil et appartement sympa. Bien situé donc un peu bruyant mais cela ne nous a pas dérangé.

Manque des ustensiles de cuisine.

En tout cas très bon service !

grazioso, ben attrezzato e in una buona posizione

  • 4 of 5

L'appartamento è grazioso, completamente accessoriato e comodo. Si trova in una bella zona di Lisbona, a meno di 10 minuti dalla metropolitana e a circa 15/20 minuti a piedi dal centro, nelle vicinanze si trovano un supermercato e diversi ristoranti. La proprietaria è stata con noi molto disponibile e cortese, una vera signora. Consiglieremo sicuramente questo appartamento ai nostri amici che dovessero venire in questa splendida città.

Apartamento para 4 personas bien equipado con todo lo necesario para hacerte pasar una estancia muy confortable. Muy céntrico, se puede visitar la mayoría de Lisboa andando. Gracias por todo Luisa hemos pasado unos días muy agradables, gracias también por recomendarlos los mejores " Pastelinhos de nata" de Manteigaria en la plaza de Luis Camoes. Si volvemos a Lisboa repetiremos en el apartamento. Gracias otra vez y un saludo.
