Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this apartment for a week in September and would definitely recommend it.

It is very central and we combined the city attractions and beach.... which could be reached very easily by train. Something to bear in mind is that the main Cais do Sodre train Station gets very busy and you could quite easily queue for a ticket for over 40 minutes. However we walked from the apartment to the next station (about 10 minutes) and enjoyed no queues!

The apartment was very spacious and you immediately felt at home with its quirky charm and friendly neighbourhood.

The owner wasn’t there when we arrived but she had already arranged for us to pick up the key from the Café/small shop 2 doors away. David and his parents were extremely helpful and friendly… and made us feel so welcome.

We look forward to returning to Lisbon again and would definitely look to return to this apartment.

Gorgeous central location

  • 5 of 5

Stopped for 3 nights with another couple. Location within the Barrio Alta easy to get around Lisbon and handy for metro and railway station if you want to visit Cacais and Sintra. Be warned if you have difficulty with steep climbs both Lisbon and the apartment which you entered via a very steep staircase. So maybe not appropriate for families with toddlers and difficult mobility. However the apartment was clean, had all the facilities required. The managers Mr Victor and his wife were extremely helpful and allowed us to leave our luggage with them on the last day as were not flying out till the evening. I would certainly use this apartment again and return to Lisbon a friendly and welcoming city.

Definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers stayed in the appartment for a few days and are quite pleased with the choice. There is plenty of space- two bedrooms, dining room+ kitchen and TV room. Its furnished and equipped well yet not at a price of loosing charm or authenticity. A big plus is that apartment stays cool notwithstanding a regular sunshine in July!

In terms of location the apparment is located in Santa Catarina, which is on tourist itineraries yet is a real Lisbon neighbourhood and is quite atmospheric. Its within 10-15 mins from more famous Alto Bara and Chiado quarters. The Praca Nacional (downtown Lisbon) is 20-30 min walk or you can pay 5 Euro (!!!) for a taxi and be there in 10..

In terms of things to keep in mind- stairs into the appartment are quiet steep and it does get rather lively on the street in the evening till late night with sounds of neighbourhood (kids playing and adults socializing). None of this was an issue for us, but if its important for you, worth keeping this in mind.

I stayed at this apartment for a week from June 1st 2013 and i would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a very central, clean and quirky apartment for a stay in Lisbon.

Although the owner was not in Lisbon during my stay, she did forward me contact details of where I could pick up the keys to the apartment which was a cafe 3 doors down from the apartment. The caretakers where i got the keys were very professional and extremely helpful advising me where to go for sightseeing / restaurants & bars etc. On the particular street whee the apartment was located a street party was organised for the 12th day of each month during the summer period and they asked me to join them for the party which was very useful as I got more tips on where to go / see from others at the street party.

The apartment itself was very well laid out and had all the requirements neede to make the holiday perfect. The rooms were spacious and were very well maintained. The patio area was a welcom sight after a hard days sightseeing where you could sit and have a glass of wine before heading off for an evening meal.

If you did not fance going out for an evening meal then the kitchen was well equipped such that you could prepare a meal there. Supermarkets were very near and stocked everthing you would require.

All in all this is an amazing apartment and was very central to all Lisbon had to offer. I will definitely return to this apartment.

Great apartment for your visit in Lissabon

  • 5 of 5

We were six adults (three couples) who stayed four nights in this apartment. There are two bedrooms with double beds and one room with a couch and a mattress that you could put on the floor to make room for all six persons. The apartment was very spacious, nice and tidy. We really liked the terrace and spent a lot of mornings and evenings there. The kitchen is well-equiped, you got everything you need there. The bathroom was nice and clean as well.

When we arrived we didn't meet with the owner of the apartment, we picked up the keys in a store that is next to the apartment, and the owner of the store, mr Vitor, was very helpfull and helped us with everything we needed during our stay. Everything went very smoothly, both when we arrived to the apartment and when we left.

The location of the apartment was very nice and we walked most of the time. It is close to Bairro Alto and the shopping district. If you want to go to the castle or the Alfama area I would recomend taxi, we tried to catch the cable car but it was full all the time and didn't even stop at the station. But the taxi was pretty cheap so it wasn't a problem.

At night it could be pretty hot in the rooms, since we could only find one fan. Therefor it was nice to have the balcony door open even if it could be pretty loud on the street at night. The noise didn't bother us that much but if you're easily disturbed, it could be an issue.

To sum it all up I can denfinately recommend a stay in this apartment for your Lissabon vacation.
