Nice apartment, well located

4 of 5
The apartment was bright and clean. The white décor with touches of blue tones gave a pleasant fresh feeling. The beds were comfortable, and the shower gave lots of hot water. While it is on the 3rd floor we did not find this an issue (we are both retired but in reasonable shape) - especially because there is a handy grocer just beside the apartment which sold a good range of beer/wine/water at a good price so you didn't have to carry it far. Indeed you could live out of that grocer - it did a bit of everything inc fresh milk (and indeed fresh guavas which I had not tried before - but will again!) and was open till late and very friendly. It's the one immediately to the right as you come out of the front door. There are other shops in the vicinity - including butchers which looked good but we didn't have the time to try them. There is as cafeteria/pasteleria 'Coppelia' just opposite. This did good coffee and cake - I recommend their Pao de Deus - at very low price - 2 coffees and 2 cakes about 3.5 Euros. Also friendly if you make a little bit of effort with your dodgy Portuguese. If you want a bigger shop there is a Pingo supermarket about 5 mins on foot up the street and bear to the right (Its rear entrance is in Largo Mastro). A short walk down the hill takes you to the Martim Moniz metro stop. However, Lisbon is really quite small, so if you are prepared for the hills, you can quite easily walk everywhere and see what you see on the way. We didn't try the nearby restaurants as we ate out during the day and at the apartment in the evening. There was enough cooking equipment for us 2 - though you would get through the cutlery quickly if the apartment was at capacity - ie there were about 6 eating knives/forks/spoons. We were there in late Feb when the temperature was between about 8 and 14 C. While the 2 air con units - one in the main living area and one in the main bedroom - have a 'heat' setting, this relies on extracting heat from outside-temperature air so is limited. We managed a tepid trickle at best. This was just about enough to not actually be cold. If the outside was any colder we would have struggled - so a couple of extra electric heaters would be good in the colder months. My other suggestion for improvement would be more light in the main living area - say a reasonably powerful uplighter. We borrowed one of the bedside lights which made a big difference. Would be happy to stay again - but would need more heat if any colder.

Superb, fully equipped flat in central location - perfect for a family city break to Lisbon

5 of 5
We stayed 10 days in the flat and could not be happier. 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.
