Our flight got delayed and we only reached the flat around 10pm. Despite our late arrival, Rodrigo was waiting for us and showed us around. The flat is well located about 10min from the centre and 20 from the castle. It was clean and had all amenities as described and more (shower gel, breakfast, wine, pantry items...). The only 2 points that have to be mentioned; flat is on the 4th floor without elevator (unfit soul stay away... :-), but that we knew before hand. Also the flat is in a very small street that taxis have a difficulty to find, however getting off at the cathedral is easier and close to home. Now cherry on the cake, one of my friends forgot her phone in the flat. Francisco went over and above his host's duty and was quick to arrange express delivery. The phone was received the day after we left. I will definitely return to this flat next time in Lisbon! Recommended 100% Thanks Michele, Francisco and Rodrigo.

                                                                                                  4 of 5

More than adequate storage in the bedroom & a very comfortable bed. The kitchen was unusually well stocked with provisions & cleaning products including those for the dishwasher & washing machine. The view from the second floor window in the living room was across the local area including Rossio Square & Santa Justa elevadore. Very beautiful by day & at sunset. Only negative issue was the less than pristine bathroom cleanliness & the temperamental shower which would only deliver hot water if the kitchen hot water tap was open! Ideal location for exploration on foot or using local transport. A great city full of interest & surprises. We hope to make a second visit soon.

He picked us up from the airport and took us back when we were leaving. This apartment is beautiful, charming, and although small it was perfect for two people. We loved the location and found Lisbon to be one of the most beautiful cities we have visited. The Portuguese people are friendly and courteous. Access to the apartment is via a typically steep staircase so may not be suitable for people with mobility problems. Thank you Paulo.
