About Manuel Pedro

Hi, I grew up in Lisbon and lived there until I was 18. After that I have studied and worked in Switzerland, Germany and China and settled finally down in Geneva, Switzerland, since many years. Lisbon remains the beloved city of my childhood, and I visit it as often as I can.

Manuel Pedro purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Manuel Pedro chose Lisbon City

I fell in love with this apartment, due to its very central location, close to all points of interest in Lisbon. From here, one can walk everywhere in the city centre and has all means of transportation at the footsteps of the flat. The view over Rossio Square and the city convinced me to buy this flat for my short stays in Lisbon.

What makes this apartment unique

So central and at the same time so quiet! The ideal combination for a bustling capital city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"The position of the apartment is excellent near the centre and near to stations of the public transport.

The appartment is very beautiful and you hear nothing of the streets. But the house itself is clairaudient, means you can hear for example the closing of the doors in the other apartments in the house.

The Caretaker of the appartment was very helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our stay in Lissbon very much.

Conveniently located

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is very centrally located with easy access to almost everything- train station, grocery store, transportation. The apartment was clean. Manuel was very prompt in responding. The bedroom is tiny. We visited in July and it is hot. The apartment has no air conditioning and it is very hot. We asked for an extra fan and it was delivered promptly! Manuel suggested keeping the door and window closed during the day to keep the place cool...but then that felt like sitting in the dark.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Very sorry for the inconvenience caused. Lisbon's weather is mild all year round and nights are usually cool in summer, between 15-20 •C . However, during your stay we faced an unusual week of hot temperatures. In my advert, it is not mentioned that it has Air Conditioning! Next time I suggest that you book a flat with such amenity if you are used to it. Thank you and sorry again. All the best.

Charming & Clean

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed our 4 day stay. The apartment is very centrally located and overlooks Rossio Square. Easy walking distance to all points of the city, may not be suitable for people who cannot handle stairs. The apartment is nicely appointed and spotless! Quite comfortable for 2 people, and the greeter explained many points of interest that were fantastic! I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again, we had a great experience!

Zentral, sympathisch, fantastische Aussicht

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten eine herrliche Woche in dieser sehr zentral und trotzdem ruhig gelegenenen Ferienwohnung.

Der Empfang durch Juan war sehr freundlich und informativ. Er gab uns eine Einführung in die Wohnung und viele nützliche Tipps für Besichtigungen,

Lebensmitteleinkauf, Restaurants und Fado Lokale. Die Ferienwohnung war sehr gepflegt und sauber.

Alles war in sehr gutem Zustand und funktionierte einwandfrei.

Ganz besonders gut gefiel uns die herrliche Aussicht auf den Rossio, einen von Lissabons berühmten Plätzen.

Vielen Dank an den Besitzer Manuel und an Juan für seine guten Tipps.

Nice Apartment

  • 4 of 5

Thank you very much for having us in your wonderful apartment in Lisbon. We spent a fantastic week, my wife and I, and it was just an ideal place to explore Lisbon from. It is a very clean, brand new apartment in the middle of everything really. A few steps away from one of the greatest squares in Europe, Rossio. The apartment is quite and has everything one would need. There is a small flat TV, maybe it could be replace by a larger one. Nearby there are lots of good resturants and coffee shops. The bus from and to the airport is sops a few meters away. the only thing that might be a bit tiring to people over 50 is that you have to climb about 20 steps to get to the building and again another 10 steps or so to reach the apartment itself on the second floor. But we did not think much about this little problem and enjoyed our stay in Lisbon.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review. I'm happy that you enjoyed your stay in my city center apartment in Lisbon. I took good note of all your comments. The stairs may be a bit tiring, however there is another way to reach Rossio by Calçada de Santana and Calçada do Garcia, without stairs - that's a bit longer but less tiring. Hope to welcome you back sometine in the future. All the best. Manuel

Would highly recommend!

  • 4 of 5

I spent 3 weeks in this apartment, one of those weeks, I was alone. It was clean, safe and well located. I loved staying here and felt like I was actually a part of a Lisbon neighborhood as you are surrounded by locals. The apartment is located on a hill so you either need to climb through the streets or up the stairs in the front of the apartment. There are two levels of rather narrow stairs, steep stairs to get to the apartment. For me, this was not a problem and I only mention it in case someone is limited in their mobility. The internet worked great. It is within walking distance to many of Lisbon sights and restaurants. The landlord was most helpful with answering my questions before I arrived to Lisbon and the greeter was very pleasant and helpful once I arrived. I only hesitate to give this review 5 stars as there were a couple of times that music from the nearby apartments were played extremely loud and I found it bothersome. That said, when asked to turn the music down, it was done in a friendly and apologetic nature. I would definitely stay here again, should I return to Lisbon.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review on my Rossio City Center apartment. I am happy to learn that you enjoyed the central location and the amenities of the flat, such as the free WIFI access. Sorry for the loud music sound coming from the flat of one of the neighbours. I have experienced it myself, but only during day time or early evening. I will talk to him again to ask for his cooperation. Would love to welcome you back any time.

Great location with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Rossio! We spent 4 nights in the apartment as part of our honeymoon. The apartment was clean and well-equipped, and the view from the living room was lovely.

Lisbon was a very beautiful & friendly city, and we hope to be back one day. Thanks again Manuel for your kind service!
