When he picked us upfront the airport he took us to the flat and pointed out many useful bits of information which greatly helped us to make the most of our short stay in Lisbon.

It was conveniently located in a very busy and atmospheric section of Lisbon. For those interested in immersing themselves into the history and living culture of Lisbon I would highly recommend this rental. The apartment is perfect for 1 person or a couple. The kitchen is adequate to cook in (we ate dinner out once) and the washing machine is a real plus for people staying more than a few days. It was very easy to get to the metro (Appolonia), the market and the historic sites. This is easy walking distance to Biaxa and Chiado, which are the two areas of the city to the West. If you stay here you will very much be in the middle of things.
