Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Apartment was large, roomy, and well designed. A "must" for us is the wi-fi which was fast and reliable. Another "must" is transportation. 2 metro stops were within 15 minute walk. Trolley and bus stop was less than 10 minutes.

Bedroom was large. The queen bed was very comfortable. Shutters on windows kept out noise as well as sun light.

The kitchen was well appointed and the appliances were high quality.

We highly recommend this apartment.

Excellent,spacious apartment

  • 5 of 5

It was easy to get to the apartment by taxi and we were met by Manuel who gave us a map and holiday travel ideas.He gave us his contact details for any problems. The apartment was clean and airy. It was bigger than we thought from the photos and brighter. There was a good view from the balcony of the River Tagus and the famous bridge. It was a quiet location and easy to walk to the main area of town down some steep steps or alternately you could turn left out of the apartment and use the elevator. There was a good supermarket at the base of the elevator,so easy to buy supplies for self catering.The apartment was near the castle but it was also easy to walk to Rossio and the other train stations. We travelled by train to Cascais, Sintra, Belem ( all recommended on fine days. We also went to the aquarium. ( good for a wet or miserable day!) We would have no hesitation in recommending this property to friends or family travelling to Lisbon providing they are reasonably fit.

Great Apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

We got to the apartment early on Saturday morning - a short cab ride from the airport it, is right up beside the Castle. Lots of the streets around the apartment are heavy with graffiti but don't be put off by this as most of Lisbon is, the whole area feels very safe and welcoming. We never felt anything but part of the scenery.

We were met by Diogo who gave us the warmest and brilliant welcome. Explained the local area in detail to us and gave us tips on getting around and where to eat etc. He chatted to us for ages making sure he helped us in anyway we could, asked us what we wanted form the trip and tried to give us all the information he could. Miguel also popped by immediately to make sure we were ok.

The apartment is much larger than we imagined and in superb condition - great shower and great kitchen kitted out with everything you could want - we are both keen on cooking and found everything we needed there. Very clean and well looked after.

The location of the apartment seemed well out of the centre of town but this was a blessing as we were close to many "local" restaurants and bars which allowed you to get a sample of real Lisbon life as opposed to the tourist-heavy main streets in the city centre.

( getting to and from the centre of town was made much easier by use of the two nearby Elevadors which take you right from the centre to Rua de Castelo. )

In short a great place to stay when is Lisbon, we will be back in the city next year and will look to Miguel as a first port of call to sort us out then too.

Ruhige Lage kaum zu schlagen

  • 5 of 5

Dieses Appartment wird man demnächst lange vorbuchen müssen. Die Lage ist so ruhig, in Lissabon dürfte es nicht viele vergleichbare Orte gegen. Das liegt ganz sicher an der Sackgasse. Die Räume sind sehr freundlich und hochwertig ausgestattet. Die Abendsonne bringt die Stimmung hinein. Die kleinen französischen Balkone zur Westseite mit Blick auf den Tejo und die Stadt, sind kaum zu überbieten. Die Wohnung liegt in einem modernisierten Mehrfamilienhaus am unteren Ende des Castells. Ein Tipp: gutes Schuhwerk mitnehmen und die nur 100 Meter links gelegenen Fahrstühle nutzen. Einer liegt ganz in der Nähe am Ende der Mauer der links beginnenden Mauer. Dort gelangt man direkt in einen Supermarkt. Geht man dort hinaus, überquert man den Zebrastreifen und landet im nächsten Aufzug (der aber Spätabends geschlossen ist). Dann ist man quasi auf Meeresspiegelhöhe im Herzen der Stadt. Das Taxi vom Flughafen sollte nicht mehr als 12 Euro kosten. Da werden schon mal 18 Euro aufgerufen. Zwanzig Minuten dauert die Taxifahrt. Miguel erwartet dann schon seine Gäste und führt sie durch die Wohnung. Er hatte nur vergessen, mir die Heizung zu erklären. Tipp: am Boiler in der Küche die Taste auf Winterbetrieb stellen, steht meist auf „Sommer“, das ist im April abends schon reichlich ambitioniert. Ansonsten: Buchen!

Top appartement

  • 4 of 5

Goed ingericht appartement en letterlijk op een top locatie gelegen. Prima bereikbaar via de lift en ook via diverse straatjes. Goede begeleiding vooraf en tijdens het verblijf. Lissabon is een prachtige stad, ga gerust dwalen en wijk af van de gebaande paden. Dit appartement is hiervoor een uitstekende uitvalsbasis.
