The sleeper couch was not very comfortable - perhaps a more comfortable version could replace it? Location was perfect for all our sightseeing needs and transport links were good. Local supermarket for basic supplies was adequate and conveniently located. Local eateries all easily located and not too far but fabulous! We had some great meals out, specifically at Gato Prado and Atiro te o Rio at Cacilhas. We had a great stay. Thank you very much. Kind regards, Sonya

We were met by Carlos who let us in to the apartment and shared some great tips for our long weekend. The location of the apartment was perfect, within easy walking distance of the supermarket, great restaurants, the Castelo and Alfalma. Commerce Square and the Rossio Train station were only a 10 minute walk, providing transport connections to pretty much everywhere that you need to get to in and around Lisbon. We had a party of three but the apartment could easily cater for double the amount of people. Thanks Heart & Soul Lisbon for a great trip!
