A week in Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

Joanna was a great host. The apartment was exactly as advertised , clean, extremely handy to the Tram 28 line and very spacious . The owner was very gracious about check in and check out time.

We were there early October and the weather was quite hot while the building does not have air con. the walls are quite thick and there are numerous fans.

Beautiful apartment in a convenient spot

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I absolutely loved Joana's apartment. It was clean, bright and spacious with interesting art everywhere, and located on the 28 tram line, so just a short ride to the city centre. The Yamaha C2 grand piano was in good condition, making this is a perfect spot for pianists to vacation. The kitchen was well equipped and there is a multitude of interesting little restaurants nearby. There was some noise from the street, but this was much diminished by closing the internal shutters, and it didn't prevent us from sleeping. Joana and Miguel could not have been more accommodating. Thanks to both for a really good week in Lisbon. I feel sure we'll be back.

Grand old Charmer

  • 4 of 5

We spent 6 days in Lisbon with our 1 year old. The flat is ideal as it has lots of crawling space. The lift is exellent too. We loved the high ceilings, the lay out, the decor and we loved that Joana offered up some Fresh toys for our boy to play with. The piano is amazing. I couldn't get the drum kit and guitars to work properly but I wasn't that bothered. The location is great for getting about on foot. Joana was on hand if needed and is lovely.

The negatives are (but didn't bother us much) it gets hot throughout the days and you need the shutters closed but this isn't a problem if your out all day. The 28 tram can be noisy if you decide to sleep with the doors open. Basics like salt and pepper mill olive oil tea and coffee would be nice. That's about it though.

Would Recommend

Week in Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was nice overall. The location was great with the Tran 28 line being right outside the building. The apartment is a little dated compared to the pictures and the furniture situation is not quite as described. We were three adults and could only have had one more person with a bed (shared). The other bed and futon were for children. Having two bathrooms was great as the one was pretty tight (with a very small tub), so the other one could be used for makeup, etc. Since not much time was spent in the apartment, it was fine for our visit to Lisbon. Would recommend due to the location.

A chance to stay in a real neighbourhood in a classical old building with modern conveniences

  • 5 of 5

Joana's apartment is a real bit of old Lisbon, high ceilings, huge doors, even a narrow balcony running the length of dining room, lounge, and 2 bedrooms. Really well equipped for eating in, but who wants to in Lisbon? Historic No.28 tram leaves from just down the road and drops you outside the front door coming back, approx 15-minute ride. I had my wallet stolen on this tram so beware and keep your hands on your valuables. Better still, don't take too much with you, especially credit cards. It's a busy road 3 floors down, but double-glazed doors block most of it out. Would we go again? Yes please. Joana us a very helpful host.
