Great stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was great - very comfortable and centrally located. The photos are accurate. Antonio was great - met us at the airport and told us about the city, where to go and what are the good places like the restaurants, fado music places etc worth visiting. He has a folder in the apartment with all the important information. He was also so friendly and welcoming! There as a bottle of wine to welcome us which was a lovely touch...

He arranged for our luggage to be taken care of by a local vegetable seller on the day we were leaving (our flight was late afternoon and the apartment had to be vacated in the morning) so we could enjoy our last day in Lisbon.

I would recommend this apartment to anyone who is looking for a central location with a friendly and knowledgeable landlord.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had a six day break in Lisbon and would certainly recommend this property. We were met at the airport and brought to the flat by Antonio who was very kind and informative and gave us lots of information to help us make the most of our time in this wonderful city. The flat is just as described and whilst small has everything you need, and more besides! It was clean, well decorated and the location was perfect. We will certainly stay here again if returning to Lisbon.

Cozy apartment and very welcoming host

  • 5 of 5

António, the host, was waiting for us in the apartment. Explained all local restaurants and how apartment works. We felt at ease and welcomed immediately.

Apartment is in Alfama, an old town, so a lot of narrow paths and a lot to see. Two nicely decorated bedrooms and living room combined kitchen. All what you need, very clean and everything working.

Really recommend this place for your trip to Lisbon.

Excellent time in Lisboa

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time from arrival at the airport. We asked Antonio to collect us from the airport due to night time arrival. Antonio was a super host and he was able to give us ideas on where to visit, eat, tourist tips etc. The apartment was small but comfortable. It is in the best location. We were able to walk to a lot of attractions, although the city in general is very hilly. I would recommend to eat where the locals eat - authentic Portugese service and food.

We would have no problems in returning to Lisbon and Antonio's apartment.

Happy casa

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is situated in a characterful neighbourhood near the castle with nearby tram stops (great fun on the tram 12). There is a little local provisions shop just around the corner and several cheap and cheerful cafes nearby. The apartment is on the first floor of an old building with stairs but has been modernised inside with a great new kitchen complete with everything you could ever need. The sitting area and shower room are compact, spotlessly clean and the big beds so comfortable. It is on a side street so mostly quiet. Midnight rubbish collections a bit of a shock until we realised this has to to happen everywhere in the area at night due to the narrow streets - not a problem. Antonio the host is such a kind gentleman, he really went over and above to ensure we had everything we needed. He left us good wine and coffee, advised us what to see and eat, returned to help us settle in and to sort our cluelessness even opening the wine when the cork got stuck! We enjoyed the lively area amongst friendly local people, so much to see and do,wished we could have stayed longer. Obrigada Antonio it was a pleasure to meet you.
