Great location, property needs a bit of maintenance.
Great location as a base to explore the city. Our children enjoyed the small play area next to the flat. Joao was helpful and accommodating. Unfortunately, the bedrooms had some patches of damp and rotting skirting boards which were in need of maintenance.
Great place to stay in Lisbon.
Easy access to the Metro, great views of the Castle, easy access to restaurants and groceries. Not for those that have difficulty with stairs or hills. Lovely views of the park out back.
A Complete Disregard for Customer Service & Abdication of Responsibility
I have spent a few days making up my mind on whether to write the following critique. I decided to go ahead for two reasons: 1)The person “Joao” who was acting for the owner “Erland” blamed me for the fiasco, which I think is completely unfair and, 2) The owner “Erland” in his response, stated that he had delegated all responsibility and offered no apology.
On Sept19th, I contacted the owner “Erland” about renting his apartment. I indicated that I was a bit nervous and wanted to sort out the details (apartment location and access) well in advance. I also said I would be arriving by bus. On Sept 22th, Erland sent me an email giving me apt address and that a person called Ana would meet me at the apartment. He also said he would “remain at my disposal should I need any additional information or help”. On September 23rd I got an email from someone called “Joao” who operated something called “Lisbon Smart Stay”. I thought the email was probably a scam because: 1)Erland had not mentioned him in his email to me; and, 2)Joao gave me advice on getting from the airport when I had indicated that I was traveling by bus.
I therefore did not immediately respond as I could not risk having my computer compromised. I sent an email both Ana and Erland asking whether they knew Joao. Neither responded to my question. This, to my mind confirmed my suspicion that Joao was to be avoided. Sept. 28th I sent two emails to Erland and Ana regarding my arrival time at the apartment. September 30th the following all happened:
I sent an email to Eland asking where Ana was as she was not at the apartment; My wife and I were now at the apartment sitting outside with our luggage. I tried to phone Erland at least 2-3 times but the number he had given did not work. I got another email from Joao asking where I was. As I was using my phone, I decided to respond and I asked where Ana was. His response was: "Like i informed you on my first message to you i'm the one welcoming you. You should have told me before arriving to the house. I'm going to meet you now". I responded by saying: "We have been waiting since 2:00 pm". His response His response was: "On the 22nd of septembre i've send you an email to which i had no answer." My wife and I had now been sitting on the sidewalk for 2 1/2 hours. When I finally got ahold of Erland, there was no apology. He had delegated all responsibilty. In my world that attitude does not cut it. There's more details but I have had to truncate the tale
Excellent, clean and spacious apartment situated in an excellent location. Completely as described. Joao was a charming, friendly host. We would stay there again.
The 3 story climb to Erland and Ana's apartment was well worth the climb and yes, one needs to be in good physical condition. Nicely furnished and well equipped with a lovely balcony affording a great view it's a perfect home away from home. Erland is extremely responsive and the check in with Joao who offered good recommendations (as did Ana in her notes), was pleasant.. All in all a great place. Thank you Erland and Ana.
Tout était parfait
Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Joao qui nous a donné des conseils et avec lequel nous avons fait le tour de l'appartement. L'appartement est en tout point conforme aux photos et à la description. Il est suffisamment grand pour 4 personnes et très confortable. La terrasse est très agréable, elle permet de prendre le petit déjeuner au soleil. Le jardin de Graça est un plus aussi, notre garçon en a profité tous les jours. La vue de l'appartement est superbe: Graça, le château...L'appartement est bien situé pour visiter Lisbonne. Il est proche du tram 28 et du métro Martim Moniz.
Un week-end dépaysant.
