The flat is four stories up so be prepared to climb a few stairs. Owner was very helpful and e really enjoyed our stay.

Apartment was large enough for 6 people to stay very comfortably. Bakeries, supermarket and other amenities were within a 2-4 minutes walking distance. I would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in exploring Lisbon and being within a 15 minute walking from most major attractions. Thanks Henrique!
