This studio worked well for us.
We took a taxi both to and from, which is the only way to do it. The metro is quite a walk, there are many hills, and the cobblestone streets can ruin your luggage wheels. Since we were going to be away from home for 3+ months, we had two suitcases each, plus a small backpack each, so too much luggage for 70-year olds to try to deal with any other way.
We did some cooking in the unit and it was pretty well stocked, although no napkins which usually are provided, and which we use. There were only about 4 paper towels on the roll with no back-up roll, so that could have been better stocked.
I loved the look and size of the bathroom, but I was surprised when I jumped into the shower only to discover no soap of any kind, except a few portions of leftover shampoo in a bottle. I've NEVER rented an apartment, or even a room with a private bath for that matter, that didn't provide bath/shower soap. Fortunately I had stuck a small bar of soap in my luggage just in case. My husband couldn't find it, of course, so I had to wrap up in a towel and walk dripping wet out to the other room to find it. That was not a pleasant memory! The pump bottle of "soap" that was on the bathroom sink was not suitable to use in the shower as it was mainly water with a dab of soap in it. Better products need to be provided to renters. That is not "as a courtesy" but as a necessity and the cost of doing business.
We made the hike to the metro everyday, and the metro was easy to use. One day we rode on the famous cable car, and felt that was a real rip off. Whenever it stopped to change drivers we had to get out, reboard, and pay again. After about 3 times doing that, we finally took the metro back.
The castle above the studio apartment was very interesting and worth a visit. You get to it by heading right when you go out the front door of the apartment. Don't head left or you'll have to go up the hill, around, and then back down. You don't go too far when you turn right to go up the hill a bit to the admission gate.
Wear good walking shoes! Enjoy Lisbon!
Bonne position géographique. Propre. Vania extrêmement gentille.
Au mois d’avril, l’appartement a été très humide, en dépit du désumidificateur .

"It’s a cozy, perfectly clean apartment fully complying with description. The location of the apartment is fantastic (within a few minutes you’ll be able to reach the famous tram 28), almost in the very heart of Alfama and near to Baixa (and when it comes to Baixa - a tip for the future visitor: in order to avoid rather steep street going directly to the square M. Moniz you can go left from the apartment and use the elevator situated next to the large terrace with a great view of Lisbon).
The owner is very kind, friendly and helpful person."

"The apartment is fully consistent with the declared site. Equipped with all necessary traveling. Clean. The area is safe to visit in the evenings. The hostess was very helpful. Showed the routes of the various attractions, shopping, restaurants. The apartment is within walking distance to many of the major sites of memory.
I would recommend this apartment to other travelers.

"The flat is new, well equipped and situated on the top of the city, under the castle St. Jorge. Very easy to get to the Baixa or the Alfama area. The owner is a very kind person and helpful. We recommend this accomodation."
If you are arriving at Lisbon airport you can either take a taxi, the airport bus or the subway. If you are driving yourself be aware that there is limited free parking space near the castelo and roads can be narrow and steep, but with luck we can arrange a good and free spot. A taxi from the airport costs between € 8-10 depending on day or night tariff. By bus from the airport - Take the AEROBUS to Av. de Libertade, from there on either a Taxi to Costa do Castelo or find your way to Martim Moniz and take the tram No 12 to the direction Castelo. Get off after 2 stops and walk up to Costa do Castelo. If you have to carry luggage or you are with kids its always recommended to take a taxi. By subway/tram - Take the subway until Rossio station or Martim Moniz, from there on by tram No. 12 or No. 28 way up to Castelo. This Studio is located at the main floor and it's easier for guests with disabilities.
