A lovely place in the heart of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Gisela’s place is a lovely apartment right in the center of Lisbon. She and her husband were wonderful hosts and great communicators. They left very nice touches, including a nice bottle of wine and made us feel at home. It is in walking distance to almost everything that you’ll need, and if you have a car, parking is relatively easy especially for a big city. Do keep in mind that it is on the fourth floor of a walk up building, which for us provided a good form of exercise. Also, through no fault of Gisela’s, it was very hot when we were there and many apartments in the city do not have air conditioning. She was very accommodating and provided us fans when we asked. My family wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again the next time we are in Lisbon.

A+ Everything we expected and more

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is just wonderful. Has a layout that allows for a nice cross-breeze with windows/small balcony out front, and a few windows towards the back. It is an apartment generous in size, with lots of light, but if you need darkness, the blinds shut tight to keep the light out, specially helpful in the morning. We didnt experience any noise, so i would say it seems to generally be quiet. It is located near a few wonderful/cute places to eat- like cafe aberto (great for breakfast), a sushi place called Giro Sabores do Mundo and also Cafe De Calcada. The apartment is a few steps away from a nice supermarket where you can get whatever you need. A beautiful mirador is right nearby- just about a 3 min walk.

Yes- it is a three floor walk up. Yes, the apartment/neighborhood is on top of a up-hill (with majestic views) but we absolutely had no problem with the stairs or the walk back home from downtown. Our 4 year old daughter walked all the way home, and up the stairs without a problem. Never complained. It's not a hike- while walking in lisbon, we stopped often to admire the architecture, Super Bock or the Pan de Deus, so we never really got tired.

And the owners was extremely responsive and helped with the airport to apartment transfers.

Highly recommended- and when we come back to Lisbon, we will stay here again if available.

We had a great 3 day stay at this apartment. Very clean and in an excellent location. Rosa met us at the apartment and gave us recommendations on what to see and how to get there. Gisela was away but kept in touch via email to see how we were doing. Thank you Gisela and Rosa!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I really enjoyed our stay in Graca near the summit of the hill. The views from the Miradouro are spectacular. Gisela was a great host, providing pastries and sightseeing advice.

Clean, bright and conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4 with 2 teenagers) enjoyed our stay at this clean and bright apartment. Although it was small, the 3 bedrooms meant that there was enough space for everyone. The apartment is very well located. It is a short walk from the Alfama district, and it is close to public transit as well. There were plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. It was also very quiet at night.

Our hostess Gisela was wonderful. She was very accommodating of our morning arrival on an overseas flight - she let us store our luggage until the apartment was ready. She was always just a text-message away and was very helpful and responsive. We stayed for just over a week, and Gisela changed the sheets and towels mid-way through our stay, which was much appreciated. We also enjoyed the welcome gift of traditional local pastries - they were delicious!

The apartment is on the third floor of a building with no elevator - those with mobility issues should take this into account. But if stairs are not an issue, this is a great place to stay.
