Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with our stay in this apartment. It is very convenient to all types of public transportation. Although very close to lots of bars and restaurants, because the bedroom is at the back, it was quiet for sleeping. So many restaurants nearby you couldn't decide which one to go to. The apartment itself was clean and spacious. Just be aware that 1st floor in Lisbon still means 1 set of stairs...

Perfect location, wonderful host, great apartment!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Carla is a wonderful host. She was courteous, efficient and very friendly. She answered all of our questions and gave us great tips on restaurants.

The apartment is lovely - perfect for a few days city break, dead centre of Lisbon, near numerous bars, restaurants, cafes, shops and the metro. We stayed here for five days and I spent less than 80EUR a day - because of the location, you don't need to use the metro, you're close to reasonably priced bars, and we saved money cooking in Carla's well-fitted and clean kitchen. The apartment was clean and equipped with everything you can need.

I would highly recommend Carla's place for anyone staying in Lisbon for a short break. I hope to stay again!

Apartment in Bairro Alto

  • 4 of 5

Very good apartment with excellent location, but the waterheating system could be much better.

Owner's Response: Dear guest M., You didn't mentioned any problem with the water heating when we did the check out, I'm really sorry... Concerning the water heating system, this is the system used in almost all portuguese homes, that is really diferent from other heating systems in other countries, mostly from northen countries where there is central heating systems for the entire home. But I'm really happy you had a nice time around, it was nice meeting you! Hope to meet you again in Lisboa soon!

Ideal location, great host!!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has absolutely everything you need for a very comfortable stay! The location is ideal, with tours leaving from the Luis de Camoes square just steps away, and the old town of Lisbon all around. Carla was delightful to deal with, and accommodated a split stay, where we spent 4 days on arrival in Portugal, and another 6 days at the end. She also welcomed us with several of the scrumptious 'Natas' (custard tarts that Lisbon is so famous for). Arguably the best Natas shop in Lisbon is just steps away from the apartment as well, so you too can become addicted to this delightful treat :-). The amenities and decor of this lovely suite make it a comfortable 'home away from home'. If you're sensitive to noise, the weekends can be a bit noisy, as this is an extremely popular area; and the double glazed windows and shutters are welcomed. Overall, the location overrides this minor consideration for us... we would love to return to Carla's apartment on our next visit to Lisbon!!

Great apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

Carla's apartment was perfect for our family. Even though it's in a busy area, the bedrooms are set back so we all slept well. Having the metro, tram, supermarket, cafes so close was very convenient with small children. The apartment is in great condition and Carla made sure we had everything we needed.

Carla "A pure delight"

  • 5 of 5

Carla, Obrigado tanto...... After a long flight from Australia Carla made everything so easy for me, she is a delight to deal with nothing is too much trouble. The apartment is fantastic, the best location you could hope for, although rowdy area bedrooms are quiet when sleep is needed, closer to everything you could not wish for..... I hope to see you again next year lovely Carla. Sorry I could reply to your text on the cruise as I wanted to come back for another week and appreciate you trying for me.... My fav accommodation in Lisbon to date.............. :-) Clarice/Australia

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting Clarice and having her around. So nice to receive her directly from the other side of the planet (Australia is just on the opposite side of Portugal). Hope to meet her next year, she is the perfect guest everyone like to have.
