Beautiful apartment in a good location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Carla's place for a week in September and loved it. It is in an old and charming building right in the hustle and bustle of Lisbon. It is equipped with everything you need for a pleasurable stay. The metro from the airport was very convenient, I do not recommend a car. Use public transportation-it is extremely efficient and inexpensive.Many shops, restaurants, mini-mercado, and a butcher are all within walking distance. I highly recommend staying here.

Excellent Location and Lisbon charm. Carla is WONDERFUL to work with

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated in a great location! Right in front of the square Praca Luis de Camões, walking distance to the Baixa/Chiado metro stop, close to Bairro Alto, and the famous yellow Tram 28 has a stop right at the square. Carla is so wonderful to work with! Carla made booking from the USA easy and answered all of our questions. She is responsive while we were booking and helpful while we were in Lisbon (she gave recommendations for food, Fado places, and checked in with us to make sure we had everything we needed). She takes pride in her apartment and it shows. It has charm and warmth with nice decorative touches reflecting the culture of Lisbon. The apartment is clean and spacious. It’s an added bonus that we only had one flight of stairs to climb after sightseeing around Lisbon. It was so nice to have Portuguese tarts (pastel de nata) waiting for us upon arrival - thanks to Carla. The night life and restaurants are all right there which make it convenient walking home late at night. If you are concerned with noise from area restaurants/bars...don’t be, because the bedroom is in the back. The large window shutter doors also keep the noise out. There’s a well stocked kitchen...although truth be told, I hardly used it as we ate out at the many amazing restaurants nearby. If you want excellent location plus Lisbon apartment charm and great price you won’t be disappointed!

The place is centrally located, has all the amenities. We explored the city mostly on foot. Many restaurants and stores are around. Carla is very nice host. Showed up in time and clearly communicated all the rules. Keep in mind that there is a bar next door that might be very popular - it is getting noisy in the evening. But the bedroom is facing the other side so it is quiet at night.

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!
