Charming, self contained apartment in a beautiful area

5 of 5
We really loved staying here for so many reasons! The area in which the flat is in is really charming; old streets and traditionally tiled buildings combined with arty, boutique shops, an amazing gellato shop and a lovely cafe in the courtyard directly outside. It is close to shops, cafes, bars and restaurants (literally within a 5 minute walk) and yet far enough away from the touristy main streets to still feel as if you are staying in the traditional old and quirky part of town and to feel relaxed. The main streets and square are a 10 minute walk away as is the famous castle. Everywhere is easy to get to with the metro, tuktuks and trams 5 mins walk away. Exploring the local area on foot is also a joy as there are so many winding avenues, beautiful buildings and magnificent views so close by. The apartment itself was lovely - immaculately decorated with great Lisbon style, a comfy bed, well equipped with everything you could need and very clean. Cristina the host was so friendly and helpful, she met us literally from the taxi and walked us to the apartment as well as pointing out good restaurants and interesting sights. She also left some lovely treats in the apartment for us. It was all completely delightful and helped to make our stay in Lisbon truly wonderful.

Perfect located appartment, centraal AND quit

5 of 5
The appartment is located on a perfect spot. In a quit street but very close to 'everything' you need. Booking process was smooth and at the location we were received by Patricia (house mgr, speaks english very Well). The appt is as it looks on the pictures. No surprises, beds are very comfortable. The views from the windows are superb, especially at the back of the house. Perfect internet and in the rua condessa their is a nice minimarket (leave the building to the left and walk 100mtr). A friendly portuguese woman will help you, she sells alomvattend everything, including bread. If you have enough of the stairs and steep streets: use the elevator or the moving staircase in Chiado shopping center or the moving staircase in the treinstation. And on wednessday at 1100 am the guards on the square have a nice ceremony when they 'change'. If you need a place to park tour car, try restauradores: prepaid rate of 17,50 euro/24 hours, less then 10 min walk. I would like to thank Vera and Patricia for their help and kindness. I strongly recommend to book this place. Once more, you are very centraal located but the appt is very quit, also during the night....
