                                                                                                      4 of 5

The newest bathroom is spacious and an amazing shower, the second bathroom is a bit small and poky ,but plenty of hot water always. Kitchen has dishwasher, washing machine ...it could do with a bit of upgrading, one door had the veneer peeling off it, and distinct lack of wine glasses...though to be fair, plenty of other glasses, cups, mugs, dishes , plates and cookery utensils.we did purchase two wine glasses, as one got broken . The area outside the kitchen , described as a patio...wasn't very pleasant during our stay as the people up above us kept throwing cigarette butts out of the window,also someone must have been doing internal repairs as masonry had crashed onto the patio. The internet is fast and no problem connecting. If you are looking to be in the hub of things, this apartment will be perfect for you, we found it really easy to get around everywhere from there.we stayed in Cais Sodre last year , two minutes away from Time Out Food market....which is a MUSt....just down the hill, and the ribiera food market is amazing, alongside time out...so much fresh meat, fish vegetables all at reasonable costs. Lisbon is a wonderful city, so many great place to visit ...we shall be back

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.
