Very comfortable apartment in perfect location

5 of 5
We stayed here 3 nights in May. Joao arranged taxi pick up and drop off for a good price, which was great. The place is located in a really nice neighborhood with good restaurants and very near some nice touristic stops (lookout points, cathedrals, and the castle are all a short walk away). Joao greeted us very warmly at the apartment and the place was very clean and tidy with nice, simple decoration and even a Nespresso machine with pods! Nice grocery store steps away. We enjoyed our stay and can highly recommend.

Quaint apartment

4 of 5
This is a quaint and quirky apartment in a beautiful, traditional tiled Portuguese building. As stated in the description it is quite small but was perfectly adequate for 3 of us. The location is ideal, with fabulous local restaurants, bakeries (for those yummy pasteis de natas), shops and transport. It is a great place to be based as you are away from the typical "touristy" areas but a 15 minute walk from the city centre. Allyson was a very helpful and accommodating owner. Lisbon is a fantastic city with a great (and very reasonably priced ) public transport system. I would recommend the Zapping card which can be used on trains, buses and the metro.
