                                Modern app. in nice old neighborhood

                                4 of 5
                                We stayed 3 days in this apartment, with 4 grown ups. Renovated to perfection. Modern luxury, everything you need is there. Tasteful interior. One bedroom is behind curtain (no wall). Can give some noise problem with others staying (late) in the living room. Other bedroom is quiet, so can be solved. We had some problem with the lock on the front door downstairs. we slammed the door to close, can be problem for other people. can be fixed easily, if so, maybe is just us being clumsy. Vera, the host, is very friendly and a great help. Neighborhood, really old center, yet quit at night, (except for garbage-collectors). Nice affordable restaurant 3 houses up the street. All in all, an 8.5. Thanks Sylvain. Wam Groot, Holland

                                The perfect Lisbon

                                5 of 5
                                Pedro was terrific. He made sure we were informed and remained attentive throughout our stay. The apartment is Very high end with everything you might want. The views are as good as it gets! King size beds in all 3 bedrooms. Close to everything. Walk a mile and your at plaza Comercio, the castle, Mercado Ribeira etc. we will return and stay with Pedro again. Perfection.

                                Beautiful Place

                                5 of 5
                                Five stars doesn't begin to describe how pleased we were in staying at this wonderful place. If I could give twenty stars i would. Everything was perfect, as were the wonderful people we met on this trip. The property owners were so nice and helpful, their property so clean and well cared for, that i cannot imagine staying anywhere else should i return. I highly recommend anyone going to Lisbon to stay here. Absolutely beautiful.
