Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Henrique,

We made it home! Long, long flight with the connection to Porto. Thanks for arranging the cab for us, it worked out fine.

Thank you for letting us stay at your apartment, we enjoyed each day! If it wasn't for the hills we would have gained 20 lbs while there. The food was amazing and we were pleasantly surprised to find the costs very reasonable.

I'm certainly going to recommend your apartment to our friends.

Again, thank you for all your help,

Great apartment in the middle of Bairro Alto

  • 5 of 5

Property was very well kept and in great condition. Apartment was large enough for 6 people to stay very comfortably. Bakeries, supermarket and other amenities were within a 2-4 minutes walking distance. I would highly recommend this property to anyone interested in exploring Lisbon and being within a 15 minute walking from most major attractions. Thanks Henrique!

Great apartment in the middle of the action!

  • 4 of 5

We were 3 couples staying in this spacious apartment. It was ideally located within walking distance to numerous restaurants, bars and shopping. Henrique stopped in upon our arrival to ensure that we had everything we needed and he responded quickly to emails during out stay. Although other reviews indicated that outside noise was a problem, we did not experience this. The apartment was well appointed with everything we needed. The only issue we had was with the heat. There is no air conditioning and Lisbon was very hot the 4 days we were there. This made sleeping quite difficult despite the use of fans. In spite of this, we had a great stay and would recommend this apartment!

family visit to Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apt in the heart of Bairro Alto! Very spacious with many amenities including full kitchen, washer/dryer, WiFi; location is perfect for exploring the neighborhood, walking down to the main plaza and river, and easily catching taxis/tuk tuks to get anywhere else. Henrique was a fantastic host and offered a baby crib and stroller for our < 2 year old. Would def stay again.

Great Apartment in Excellent Location

  • 4 of 5

My two sisters and I spent a couple of days in this apartment in Lisbon. We commented numerous times about how we loved the location in the Barrio Alto. We walked 10 miles during our first day in Lisbon-there is so much to see and do there. The apartment is roomy and nicely furnished. While the neighborhood is loud, you do not really hear the street noise from the back bedrooms (I used a sound machine app on my phone in the front bedroom). You can, however, hear the tenants above walking around loudly and having guests, but that is part of city living. Staying in this apartment made us feel like we really did live in the city. Henrique is a gracious host, arranging an early morning taxi for us to the airport.

Terrific flat in a wonderful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for several nights in late March and had a wonderful time. The flat is large and accommodated this family of 5 easily. The living area is comfortable and feels very bright and airy. It was a little chilly the days we were there but the portable heaters were very effective. The location is perfect for exploring Lisbon on foot and access to the Metro and Tram 28. A bit by accident, we ate every dinner in a restaurant on the street. I highly recommend Blend and Antonio's. Both meals were delicious with lovely staff. The street can be a little noisy late at night so I'd recommend putting the lightest sleeper in the back bedroom. Enjoy!

Brilliant spot to stay

  • 4 of 5

We were a family of six adults staying at this apartment,it's in a brilliant spot , convenient for transport links, walking anywhere, shopping, restaurants , bars, clubs etc etc

It's spacious, quirky corridors, but you soon get used to them...comfortable beds, linen and plenty of towels.

The newest bathroom is spacious and an amazing shower, the second bathroom is a bit small and poky ,but plenty of hot water always.

Kitchen has dishwasher, washing machine ...it could do with a bit of upgrading, one door had the veneer peeling off it, and distinct lack of wine glasses...though to be fair, plenty of other glasses, cups, mugs, dishes , plates and cookery utensils.we did purchase two wine glasses, as one got broken .

The area outside the kitchen , described as a patio...wasn't very pleasant during our stay as the people up above us kept throwing cigarette butts out of the window,also someone must have been doing internal repairs as masonry had crashed onto the patio.

The internet is fast and no problem connecting.

If you are looking to be in the hub of things, this apartment will be perfect for you, we found it really easy to get around everywhere from there.we stayed in Cais Sodre last year , two minutes away from Time Out Food market....which is a MUSt....just down the hill, and the ribiera food market is amazing, alongside time out...so much fresh meat, fish vegetables all at reasonable costs.

Lisbon is a wonderful city, so many great place to visit ...we shall be back

Owner's Response: Hello, thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed the apartment and location and I'm sorry about the hassle with the inner patio. I have spoken to my upstair neighbors and they said the maintenance people were there and they must have been responsible for littering the patio. I have asked them not to do this again. Many thanks - H
