Glenn, Guillaume and Shana are exceptional hosts---attentive and responsive, yet unobtrusive. It was easy to arrange a booking, payment and communication with Glenn. The apartment was well maintained, very clean and had lovely decorative touches. The bed was comfortable, large and well-lit for reading. There was plenty of storage space in the bedroom closet. We really enjoyed the shower---plenty of warm water and pressure, a most adjustable shower head and sprayer, and quite spacious. The bathroom was small, but was clean and functional. The terrace attached to the bedroom was charming and had plenty of clothesline for hanging stuff. The Internet connection was fast and efficient. The guidebook was very interesting and helpful. The kitchen, though small, was well supplied with dishware, cutlery and utensils. The fridge was spacious. The entire apartment has very modern windows, which open, close and lock nicely. We really enjoyed listening to the sounds of the charming small street outside our kitchen window. The laundry facility was conveniently located around the corner---it had both washing machines and dryers (which were most appreciated) as were the bathroom and comfortable couch in the waiting area. There are so many great places to eat within short walking distance of the apartment that you wouldn’t need to wander far, unless you wished to. Lisbon itself is a gem of a city---friendly people, wonderful architecture, great public transportation, and a terrific range of shopping and dining. One very small thing we would have liked--- more substantial, fluffier pillows on our bed! When we return to Lisbon, which we unquestionably will, Glenn will be our “go-to-guy” for accommodation. Thanks so much!
