The house was decorated with a lot of taste and the owner was very kind and ready to help when needed. The proximity of the Casa to the historic centre and to Cais do Sodre metro and train station was very convenient. However, if you need more privacy it could be difficult to be obtained as the whole house has open space conception, with a door at the bathroom only. The house is situated in very communicative area and it was a little bit noisy during the nights unless the windows were kept closed. As a whole we had very positive impression both from the place and the owner and would recommend Casa da Bica to other travellers.

The apartment is really lovely, stylish and well equipped, the location is superb and within easy walking distance of lots of Lisbon's key sights, transport (famous number 28 tram) and many eateries - we particularly enjoyed the Time Out Market. We would definitely book the apartment again .

We loved the apartment, which was well furnished and equipped, quiet, and very comfortable. And the views in either direction were amazing - the pictures on the website do not do it justice! And such a good area for bars and restaurants - the highlights for us were the 'Pavilhão Chinês' (Chinese Pavillion) bar across the road from the apartment, and 'Terra' vegetarian restaurant only 5 minutes walk away. Good bus route right outside to Cais do Sodré. Excellent Brio supermarket a short walk away, near the bus route.
