GREAT APARTMENT - PERFECT LOCATION

5 of 5
What you see is what's you get - the description given matches the apartment. The apartment is in a great location, clean and well equipped with everything you need within walking distance or a short journey on public transport . Paulo (the owner) took time to answer any questions and to let us know where to visit and places to eat and drink, things to see and do and responds to messages promptly. We would definitely rent this property again on a return visit to Lisbon and would highly recommend it to anybody visiting Lisbon . We really enjoyed our 4 days in Lisbon. Thank you Paulo for making our stay comfortable and relaxing. We very much appreciated everything and the airport runs 😄
