Overview

About the property

The apartment is located in the historic center of Lisbon, in the neighborhood of Sao Cristovao and São Lourenço. The apartment is on the 1st floor of an eighteenth century building which was built after the earthquake of Lisbon in 1755 and was recently renovated (2011). These works were carried out as part of an architecture.

The apartment has a good light and comfort. It has wireless Internet available, and even cable TV. Here you can take a Nespresso coffee or enjoy a good bottle of Portuguese wine.

This area is very close to the São Jorge Castle (10 minutes walk) and the same distance the river and the Bairro Alto. It's very central as it is in the heart of the city. It is very near Rossio Square and Figueira Square. It is 1 minute from Rossio subway station and a car park. It has many means of transport available right next door (metro, bus, tram and taxi) and the different trade, including a mini-market.

It is a very quiet area and the building is situated in a typical pedestrian stairway to the castle of San Jorge.

About André Fonseca

I was born in Lisbon. This is where I grew up, studied, worked, dated and married. Working in shifts, I decided to leave the city center of Lisbon, be established in a quiet place to rest. I love to travel and see the world around me. I like being with friends, organize dinners with wine tasting. I love photography, music and a good movie for me stir feelings. I am a friend of my friend and I appreciate sincerity.

André Fonseca purchased this apartment in 2012

Why André Fonseca chose Lisbon City

The apartment was bought for my daughter to have a place to stay in admission to the University. I am preparing her future but she is only 12 years old and until it is available shouldnt be used because the closed building, unused for several years, it will be more easily degraded.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has a quiet environment. The building where it is located, has only two tenants (one upstairs and one downstairs), which helps no noise and be friendly. The location is good because it is within the city center. And while you are at the beginning of the hill, a staircase where there are no cars and giving access to the Castle of San Jorge. Magnificent.

Andre and his darling apRtment deserve a 10 rating.

  • 5 of 5

We travel often and Andre is the most helpful, detailed oriented host we have ever encountered! He made our travel to Lisbon so easy providing maps and bus schedules. Be sure to try the restaurants he recommends! His small apartment has everything plus a person could ask for. Do not let the graffiti concern you; Lisbon has a graffiti problem but the crime rate is minuscule, the people are so kind; we never encountered any problem day or night. Thank you dear Andre for providing a wonderful experience in Lis on! 😘 Pete and Karolin USA

In the heart of the city

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very well situated. Three to five minutes walk from the Rossio square and at the bottom of the hill there are steps and a small road that lead you through meandering alleys to the St George castle. Along this way you will happen upon small cafés, restaurants and the normal life style of the Lisboites in this area.

The apartment is situated in the multi ethnic part of the city. It is nothing new and has been such for a long time. It is a wonderful and happy atmoshpere to be in and the people are very welcoming as are the majority of the Portugese!

The apartment is very clean and well equiped for all that one needs. A small mercado, market, store is within two minutes walk as well as several good restaurants.

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

My partner ad I had a lovely time in Lisbon. The apartment was truly in a great central location. Grocery store, wine store, restaurants etc all convenient. Andre met us in a convenient location and we walked to the apartment. We were guided through some cobbled side streets (laneways) then up a set of cobbled stairs (Lisbon is very hilly) to our apartment. At first sight, narrow lane, graffiti everywhere, garbage cans and very tiny and steep stairway to get to our second floor apartment I was a bit worried but the apartment inside was very clean and bright. Andre, our host, provided excellent information about the area, what trams to take to get to the sights, as well as places to eat. We did not get to the seafood restaurant he suggested but we ate twice at the little restaurant just down the lane called Ze dos Corvos (servings were large you may want to consider sharing!). I was worried that the street noise might keep us awake but once you closed the windows and shutters it was very quiet and dark (good for sleeping). The apartment was small but efficient and I really appreciated the Nesspresso machine for morning coffee. The bed was firm and smaller the we expected. Bathroom was bright and clean. We were able to do some laundry and it was great when we figured out how to use the hanging drying rack on the balcony (the rack was stored beside the kitchen counter with clothes pegs under the sink). The temperature during our stay (May 15-19) was warm during the day and cool at night...the lack of air-condition could be problematic in the summer. All in all a good enough place to stay when visiting Lisbon.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Alex and Ken. To avoid any confusion for future tenants, I have to make a correction: the apartment is situated on the first floor and not on the second floor. Best regards,

Размещение в центре - главное достоинство апартаментов. Остальное - с замечаниями.

  • 4 of 5

Проживали в этих апартаментах мы неделю, с 12 по 19 января 2017 года. Погода на улице была +13 днем, +5 ночью (перед отъездом сначала стало +18, а затем ночью температура опустилась до -1).

Батарей в квартире нет (актуально для зимы), поэтому единственный обогреватель мы не выключали (накрутили, наверное, электричества!), зато хоть как-то смогли поддерживать баланс в +20 в комнатах.

Квартира со своими особенностями. Всё-таки 5 баллов по моей критической оценке она не заслуживает. ДА, аутентична, и относится к категории старых особняков района Алфама, но необходимо учитывать и современные требования постояльцев!...

По-порядку.

Ванная. Нет вентиляции. Весь пар идет в спальню (она проходная), из-за чего запах сырости не покидает это помещение. В ванной комнате не достаточно полочек. Верхний душ протекает, нижний не регулируется.

Электричество. Максимальная нагрузка примерно 5 кВт. Т.е. при работающем обогревателе (1,5 кВт), котле с горячей водой и одной конфорке плиты включение чайника вырубало весь свет.

Котла с водой хватает помыться 1,5 человеку, т.е. я моюсь без головы, и жене хватает только на минут 5. Потом холодная. Нагревается за час.

Кровать вроде бы 140 см шириной, но сделана выпуклой, т.е. в центре выше, чем по краям. Комфортная ширина, чтобы не упасть, где-то метр (на двоих).

Кухня. Не было мусорных пакетов. Нет крышек на сковородки - чтобы пожарить рыбу, накрывал тарелкой. Посуды и ложек вилок много разных. Все ножи - с зазубринками, специально в чемодане вожу точилку, так даже не смог их наточить!

Площадь квартиры реально маленькая, на фотках как-то больше выглядит.

Хозяин замечательный, забрал с аэропорта на машине, а потом мы минут 40 стояли в пробках (6 километров ехать до дома, мы прилетели в 8 утра).

Очень удобное размещение! До двух основных станций метро (Rossio и Restauradores) пешком минут 5. От них и нужно отталкиваться при осмотре.

Проезной Zapping - прекрасная штука, Daily Ticket не стоит даже брать

Постоянно солнце светит в январе, даже если на улице +5, всё равно чистое небо! Сплошной позитив!

Город - шикарен. Только за неделю и можно осмотреть 30 основных достопримечательностей! Сравним с Барселоной!

Cute flat in Center of Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Andre's flat for a couple of days before heading off to San Sebastian. Andre is a great host and he was able to give us very helpful information about the area and maximizing our time while in Lisbon. The flat is very close to the Rossio Metro station (~4min walk) and about a 8 min walk to the Rossio Train Station. The flat is centrally located and it was easy to get the castle (15 min walk up hill) and to the other neighborhoods in Lisbon (Alfama, Barrio Alta etc). The flat was very clean and had a good wifi connection. I hope to return to Lisbon soon.

The apartment is located in the neighborhood of San Cristovão and San Lorenço in the historic center of Lisbon. The apartment is on the first floor of a building of the century. XVIII that might be after the Lisbon earthquake in 1755 and was recently renovated (2011).

Between the Beco dos Surradores and the Poço do Borratém Street has a staircase that goes to the castle. It is one of those buildings (it is the yellow one).
