Overview

About the property

In the town centre, fully renovated 53 sq.m apartment with 10 sq.m terrace

The apartment is located right above the Alfama, in front of the Miradouro de Graça and the Castelo Sao Jorge, in an authentic and bustling area on the heights of the Alfama hill. It was renovated in 2013 and is now fully equipped. There are two bedrooms, a bathroom, a kitchen a dining room, and a furnished terrace.

- Bedroom 1: queen size bed (160 cm), two windows (one of which has a balcony and offers a view of the town and the 25 de Abril Bridge)

- Bedroom 2: bunk beds (90 cm) + extra bed

- Bathroom with a bathtub

- Dining room with view of the convent of Graça

- Comfortable sofa bed (Rapido system) for 2

- Fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher, oven, microwave oven, espresso machine, washing machine, refrigerator, and induction hobs

- Terrace with barbecue/plancha, table for 4 to 6 people

The apartment is not overlooked on the side of the terrace. The building faces the Graça Park. It is located in a very quiet area and offers an exceptional view of the Old Town (with the convent of Graça, the Alfama hills, the Castelo Sao Jorge), the Tage and the 25 de Abril Bridge.

Wi-Fi, television, DVD player, iPhone/iPad dock

The apartment is ideally located in the heart of the Graça district, 100 m away from the terminus of the famous Tramway 28. The area offers plenty of restaurants and shops (5 bakeries and cake shops, 2 fishmongers’, 3 butcher's shops, 1 supermarket...) as well as many services (launderette, cybercafé, gas station, banks, newspapers...).

The apartment is fully equipped with dishes, towels, and sheets.

It is located on the third floor of an historic building (typical façade covered with azulejos) which was entirely restored in 2013.

You only need 10 minutes to get to the airport. There is a large taxi station 100 m away and the metro is within walking distance or you can take the Tramway 28 to get to it. If you have a car, you can easily park at the foot of the building, which is quite unusual in Lisbon.

About Erland

We are three couples of friends and we bought the apartment in order to enjoy some family time.

Erland purchased this apartment in 2013

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with it for its spectacular view, its high quality structure, and its perfect location. We hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Great place to stay in Lisbon.

  • 4 of 5

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

  • 1 of 5

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

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great apartment, great city

  • 5 of 5

We've just enjoyed a lovely 6 days in Lisbon, on our first family holiday with our 6 month old son. As a city, Lisbon was an excellent place to get out and explore (if you're ready for the hills!), public transport was easy to use and child friendly (a mixture of using a sling and buggy depending on the mode of transport) and people were very helpful when they saw we had a baby with us, giving up seats, letting us go to the front of a line or just generally having a friendly chat.

This apartment was an excellent base for exploring from, with a lot within walking distance (again, be prepared for the hills!). We felt very welcomed by Rita, who provided us with all we needed to know about the apartment, Lisbon and made herself available should we need any further help. The apartment was just as described and very comfortable, and we were provided with a travel cot for our son. The views from the balcony were lovely and the park that it overlooked was great!

As said before, be prepared for hill walking (or using a taxi!) and that the apartment is on the third floor. This was never a problem but it did mean a lot of stairs at the end of the day! Excellent exercise to counteract the many pastries consumed during our holiday however!

Thanks Erland, Ana and Rita for providing a lovely place to stay!
