We flew in to Lisbon Airport and used the metro to travel in to Lisbon - took around 30-40 min. The flat was easy to find (we used the Maps on the iphone) and was a 5 min walk from Avenida metro stop. We were met on arrival and the owner gave us a quick of the flat and some hints and tips about what to do and where to go which was great. The flat is fully equipped including very comfortable beds, dish washer, washing machine, iron, hair drier etc. there was even 'hotel size' shampoo and body wash in the shower. In the kitchen there was salt/pepper/oil etc and dishwasher tablets etc which is a nice touch. The WiFi was great too. After querying we decided to bring some beach towels as I didn't want to take the lovely, fluffy towels supplied to the beach. There are 2-3 local 'Fruiterias within 200 meters of the flat' - small shops with a selection of food but the most wonderful selection of fruit. You can also get fresh bread. We ate out most evenings and visited a few of the restaurants based on Rua Sao Jose on the way down to Rossio metro station. We had great food every time. We used the flat as a base and became experts using the metro system which was really easy to use. We traveled to Sintra, a wonderful town up in the mountains (45 min on train from Rossio station); to a number of beaches - Cascais and Estoril - 2 fairly small and very busy beaches, 30-40 min on train from Cais do Sodre station; but our favorite beach was Costa do Caparica with miles of golden yellow sand facing the Atlantic so the waves were great. To get there we took the boat from Cais do Sodre to Cacilhas (10 min) and bus 135 to Caparica (20 min). We also visited the Oceanarium, located near the Oriente metro stop, which we enjoyed immensely as well as the History of Lisbon center located on Terreiro do Paco, a massive plaza by the port. The history tour is well worth it if you are interested in architecture as it explains why Lisbon is structured the way it is. For an extra euro you get access to the top of the Arc with great views in all direction. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Lisbon, the flat was perfect for our needs and we hope to return again in the future.

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.

It is roomy with bathroom to serve each bedroom, and a well-equipped kitchen. The window shutters are great to keep the noise out when Lisbon is in its revels. Our companions found their double bed a little hard but the two single beds were fine. The locations in Chiado is also good. Not far from many of the Lisbon attractions. There is parking available although the operations of the gates is temperamental. There are also limitations to the access to the road which is closed after 7:00 pm.
