The apartment its self was perfectly advertised, it was clean, tidy, presentable, cosy and has everything that we needed for the short stay we had their. The owner, Filipa, was polite and extreamly helpful. The added bonus of there being a pleasent and reasonably priced restaurant - bar, Frei Papinhas, next door was an added bonus.

La cocina está muy bien equipada, el baño es fantástico, muy luminoso y con ventana al exterior con una amplia ducha y las toallas siempre calientes. El apartamento está muy bien comunicado, la estación de Santa Apolonia (y el metro) está a cinco minutos caminando, al igual que el mítico tranvia 28 en su parada en Santa Luzía. Paulo siempre estuvo atento durante la reserva y ya estando en Lisboa nos ayudó mucho en nuestras dudas de restaurantes, transportes etc. Nos obsequió con un vino que estaba muy bueno cuando entramos en el apartamento. Enfrente de la casa hay una tienda de comestibles de Doña Manuela que tiene productos muy buenos y ella es encantadora. Aunque los días que estuvimos en Lisboa llovió pudimos recorrer practicamente todo el centro de Lisboa. Volveremos seguramente en primavera y por supuesto iremos al apartamento de Paulo que es nuestra segunda Casa. Gracias Paulo por todo. Paloma y Jose.
