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.
