Great location

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly host responds quickly to emails. Taxi to center of Rossi Square is about 10 euros. I don't recommend for the elderly or children because of steps and stairs inside apartment. Very clean ..enjoyed stay.

A whiff of real house in the hearth of Lisbon

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of three people and we stayed at Casa da Bica for 5 nights in the beginning of April.

The house was decorated with a lot of taste and the owner was very kind and ready to help when needed. The proximity of the Casa to the historic centre and to Cais do Sodre metro and train station was very convenient. However, if you need more privacy it could be difficult to be obtained as the whole house has open space conception, with a door at the bathroom only. The house is situated in very communicative area and it was a little bit noisy during the nights unless the windows were kept closed.

As a whole we had very positive impression both from the place and the owner and would recommend Casa da Bica to other travellers.

Fabulous accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

Paulo's apartment is first rate. We loved the sunny aspect and charming decor. Great bed, bed linens and shower. We walked everywhere from this location and discovered wonderful eating options nearby. Thank you Paulo for all your tourist suggestions and for arranging our taxi to the airport. Having a wonderful apartment to return to after a busy day of touring really made our trip to your beautiful city very special.

Cozy and Charming

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at this lovely, well-appointed duplex, which overlooked a hilly street and had a terrific coffee shop a stone’s throw away. The loft was comfortable and the place was nice, clean and quiet. The location is ideal, walking distance to the middle of a district loaded with interesting shops, bars and restaurants. Our accommodations provided everything we needed, just like being at home. I would highly recommend this gem of a find! Almost forgot, our host was a perfect gentleman who greeted us warmly and made us feel like we were visiting family. Thank you Paulo. We will be back!

Delightful house in ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We much enjoyed our two weeks at Casa Bica, a tastefully and comfortably furnished little house, equipped to the most modern standards, e.g. with a dishwasher and washing machine. It is ideally located for a stay in Lisbon: up the hill to the Chiado or the the view point with bar overlooking the Tagus, down the hill to the railway line to the seaside, to the dining and shopping at Mercado da Ribeira, or walking back by the sea into the city centre. The landlord, Paulo Brito, is well organised and very helpful. We are keen to return some day.

We loved our stay at Casa Bica and highly recommend it to anyone planning a visit to Lisbon Historic Center. The location is ideal, close to everything yet in a quiet neighborhood. It's easy to walk to, also easy to access the local transportation, very easy walk to the river. The house itself is a gem - obviously decorated and renovated recently - very clean. The house has everything you need - a kitchen with microwave, coffee maker, dishwasher. 2 very cute bedrooms and a very nice bathroom. There is Wifi, a TV and an iPod doc. Paulo is an excellent host and was very helpful to us. He gave us good recommendations for sight seeing and was accessible if we had a question or problem. If you come to Casa Bica you won't be disappointed.
