We took the owner up on her offer to meet us at the airport (+€20) as it was late and we never would have found it on our own. She also gave us lots of good local information a b out the area. The apartment is on the 3rd floor, but just consider that as conditioning for everwhere else you go in Lisbon. Actually by the end of our 5th day we were both in much better shape. There are lots of local eateries and most offer Fado music and local dishes to select from. In the morning there are a few different café to choose from or buy some coffee and make your own with the coffee maker provided. One of my favorite things about the apartment's location is the bakery just up the street. Great fresh bread and rolls every day to make sandwiches. Anyways, we highly recommend this apartment for a cozy Lisbon getaway. K & R
