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.

The apartment was fantastic, clean, great shower. Best of all, the location was ideal. Close to many bars & restaurants, and a short walk from many tourist sites. I would love to go back and explore Lisbon some more.

                                                                                                      4 of 5
                                                                                                      The apartment is in a great location at the top of hill above Bairro Alto (and it's many bars). There is a fantastic viewing point approximately 100 yards walk away. You can walk down to the sea front and main square within 15 minutes. The apartment was clean and light. There is not a balcony as such but there is a railing so you can open the doors and enjoy the sun/ views of the street. The bedrooms are ample sized, as is the kitchen and the living room. The owner, Sofia was there to meet us when we arrived and was very helpful. The only downside to this apartment is the en suite bathroom with shower as it is very small but there is another toilet so it is only showering which is not ideal. Overall, I would recommend this apartment.
