                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      I booked The Haven after looking at the details and reading the reviews. I was not disappointed. Arrived after severe flight delays at 02:00 yet Tito was there, smiling and welcoming. He showed us around the apartment, room by room, explaining each element and how rightly proud of how the apartment was presented. Whilst appreciative of the lateness of the arrival. Waking up the next morning after a comfortable night we saw the apartment in all it's luxury, the sun streamed through the front bedroom and lounge. Opening the doors to the sounds of Lisboa, perfect. 3 Bedrooms all spacious with enough storage to house all that you could need. Matching quality furniture in all bedrooms. Hangers, towels, hairdryers, all had their place, neatly and consistently presented in each bedroom. 1 en suite bathroom + 1 family bathroom both with shower, sinks etc + separate toilet in the hall, all fully stocked. Kitchen, everything you could possibly need, it has everything! Coffee machines, kettle, juice maker, toaster, dryer, washing machine. With added touches of coffee and bread to welcome you. Lounge, the balcony is a perfect place to enjoy a fruit filled breakfast in the morning and a glass of Portugal's finest white,green,red wine in the evening - watching the lights. The lounge itself is a luxurious, comfortable relaxation space for conversation, some TV or reading (books provided). TV has cable with channels in Portuguese, Spanish & English. A special mention for the personalised in depth guides produced by Tito - wonderful and incredibly helpful. Please take time to read. Up on floor 15, accessible by lift, it was simple and safe to travel to. 3 mins walk to Oriente train & underground. 5 mins walk to Vasco De Gama shopping centre and Supermecado. So easy. The Oriente is a lovely area, regenerated for the Expo in 1998. Modern, accessible and cultural. Lisbon town is within easy reach on the underground. The Haven was a delight to return to each day and quickly felt like a home not a holiday apartment and that is a tribute to Tito and his staff who put so much time and effort into the presentation and cleanliness. Therefore it is easy to give 5 stars. May i express a thank you to Tito and all who present the Haven for a wonderful stay. From the luxury to those small touches that make a holiday personal. I will definitely stay again. To all those staying in the future, please continue to respect and enjoy The Haven.

We found the Portuguese meals delicious but very generous so it was nice to eat at home some days. There is a small super market round the corner and a lovely bakers just opposite, where we had breakfast most mornings. We came with a car and parking is restricted during work hours but there's a car park 5 mins walk from the apartment costing around 10-15 euros a day. As other people have mentioned, the tram runs past the front of the building and can be a little noisy but it didn't bother us at all. This is a lovely apartment and Ana and Helena were very helpful with the booking.
