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,

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

In a word .... FANTASTIC!

  • 5 of 5

Henrique....thank you so much for all your help and care during our stay in Lisbon. The apartment was perfect for us ... very spacious and bright with an unbelievable location. As many have mentioned it was quiet for sleeping with all the benefits of living in the Bairo Alto. Grocery shops, the lovely Antonios downstairs, coffee in the Placa and restaurants everywhere. We highly recommend the tiny Do Bem Ester across the street .... typical delicious fish and family run! And I must say that the kind attention Henrique gave us when my husbands back was giving him problems ... above and beyond! We highly recommend this lovely apartment for your home away from home as you explore this gorgeous, friendly and beautiful city. Wish we could find such an apartment in other world class cities. Your Canadian fans!

Fantastic apartment in Lisbon

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this fantastic apartment for 3 nights during a recent stopover in Lisbon (Oct 2016). The location was perfect for seeing all the highlights in Lisbon as well as enjoying the nightlife (Jazz and Fado) In Bairro Alto and Chiado. This is a large apartment that has lots of historic charm and was comfortable for our group of 6. We really enjoyed the living space at the front of the apartment, which had floor to ceiling french doors which let in a lot light and fresh air. The owners have paid a lot of attention to the details that we look for when choosing vacation accommodations: very comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, nice bathrooms, linens and towels were plentiful and new, and the entire apartment was very clean.

Spacious, inviting and well located in prime area.

  • 5 of 5

Henrique was an amazing host for our family of five, to include 3 adult children. He was punctual, very helpful ahead of time and when a member left a credit card, informed us and offered to get it back to us.

The layout was spacious and rooms were apart to provide privacy. The shuttered balcony windows opened onto a small but popular street at night, giving us a neighborhood feeling. Highly recommend and can't say enough good things about our experience!

A lovely apartment that is within walking to many of the main attractions.

  • 5 of 5

We were travelling with another couple in Portugal recently and found this to be a lovely place to spend 4 days touring about Lisbon. It is a charming large apartment with plenty of room for two couples (with an extra small bedroom if needed). It was clean and well supplied with linens, and a fully equipped kitchen. The layout was spread out but we enjoyed the privacy this allowed when travelling with others. We had a minor glitch getting access to the apartment as the code on the door had been changed but Henrique was quick to respond and I would suggest making sure you have his number with you before you get there.

I would recommend this apartment highly to others and am sure they will love the elegant spacious feel of this apartment and its close walking proximity to excellent restaurants, groceries and the old historic area of Lisbon. Also loved our Port experience at Antonio's next door!

Fabulous Location & Ambience

  • 4 of 5

We (two couples in our early 60's) recently spent 6 nights in this great apartment. The location is wonderful. The Metro and famous 28 tram are close by and it is a short walk to Rossio train station and also down to Placa do Comercio on the river. There are numerous bars and restaurants close by and there is a genuinely local feeling about the whole Bairro Alto area. It is noisy at night but that isn't a problem in the apartment. The beds are really comfortable, it was very clean and the kitchen well-equipped. The apartment is obviously very old, has lots of passage ways and an unusual layout but we found it charming. If you don't like steeps hills and want to stay somewhere modern and streamlined this probably isn't for you. But if you want to experience a little of the old Lisbon and some of its local characters this a great choice! We loved it and would happily stay there again.
