The apartment is comfortably situated in the Alfama district of Lisbon and affords an opportunity to interact with inhabitants that is simply unavailable if you retreat to a high-rise hotel in downtown Lisbon. Fado music wafts through open windows nightly. Several superb restaurants (The Corkscrew) are readily available and are within walking distance. The public transit system is remarkably efficient and inexpensive. Virtually every corner of the metropolitan area is accessible.
The apartment itself is has modern appliances, and is well-maintained. The manager (Antonio) with his delightfully quirky sense of humor, is an enormous asset. The sole caveat is that steps to access the apartment would represent a formidable challenge for people with disabilities.
We would not hesitate to highly recommend this apartment to family and friends who desire an authentic Portuguese experience.
We had a great stay at this cozy yet spacious apartment in Lisbon. The apartment has wonderful historical touches and antique furnishings, and yet feels comfortably modern at the same time. There was a lot of natural light, and good breezes from the open windows.
The apartment is located in the Alfama neighborhood, which has narrow cobblestone streets, beautiful tiles, and lots of energy. We could hear the sounds of Fado music each night from the apartment, and there were lots of restaurants and cafes right nearby where we could listen to the Fado singers in person.
The owners were very good, friendly hosts, and made sure that we were comfortable and well taken care of.
The only negative was that a lot of construction was taking place in the neighborhood during our stay, so the apartment was a bit noisy during the day.
