                                                                                                      Located on a side street just off the iconic number 28 tram route. You can therefore comfortably walk to all the major attractions in the Alfama district. The property is in the loft and is accessed via a steep stair case which could be troublesome if you aren't traveling light. Apartment has everything you could need for a short stay in Lisbon. Small living area with books and TV with speedy internet access. There is a DVD player and access to a plethora of channels. You can even watch Netflix should you choose. Kitchen has everything you need and is well stocked with dishes, cutlery pans etc plus basics like salt and pepper and washing up liquid. Bedroom and bathroom are located in a more slanted area of the apartment so beware anyone over 6"4'. Again fully equipped with towels and even soap, shower gel and toilet paper so no need to go out and find the basics when you arrive. There is even a washing machine if you need to do laundry and again there is washing powder provided. The small balcony has views over the river plus you'll see the trams coming and going. Apartment was very warm in summer but you could sleep with a window open. There are also heaters for cold days. Please be aware there is some nearby construction work going on which could be irksome if you are spending much of the daytime inside. However if you will be out exploring Lisbon I highly recommend this apartment and you will have a wonderful time exploring Alfama from your ideally located home away

The apartment is clean, beds are comfortable (I recommend an extra blanket for each bed.), showers worked well, and kitchen was well equipped. We didn't make any meals (just coffee, toast, and heated up soup.). It is spacious and from the veranda you see the part of the castle and the sea! It is walking distance to a supermarket and cafes. Communication with Heart Soul Lisbon crew was always pleasant in their emails and gave quick responses. We were welcomed by Francisco, who was friendly, helpful, and nice. He even helped us with our luggage, which you do have to walk a bit to get to the building (up hill). That was the only difficult part was dragging our suitcases up a cobblestone street. We drove our car to Lisbon, but if you come by taxi you can get dropped off right at the door of the apartment building. Only residences' cars, taxis, and tuktuks are allowed in the area. So we parked in the closest parking garage. It was about 14€ a day. Being from the NY area we thought is wasn't too bad. The location is quiet overall, but remember their are lots of hills. I would recommend this apartment! I felt safe, comfortable, and enjoyed it's views. Sincerely, Rosa
