We stayed at the Hidden Hills apartment during our 5day stay at Lisbon in July. Joaquim was an excellent host, picking us up from the airport and delivering us to the apartment even though his wife had just brought his new baby home. The poor man even got a flat tire in doing so. Joaquim explained where all the sights are, how to get tickets for the trains/trams etc and good places to eat.
The apartment had everything we needed. The location is not far from most sights in Lisbon, the city centre was about 15 minutes walk however there are some steep hills all around (be prepared). Joaquim even arranged a taxi to collect us early in the morning so we could make our next flights, my Portuguese was not good enough.
On the down side we had a family of elephants move into the apartment above us thankfully they only stayed a couple of nights.
Perfect host, perfect location. We stay here every year. Beautifully decorated and fully furnished. Easy access to the E28 tram and the lovely Graca district. Grocery near the apartment. Thieves Market only 100 meters away.
Great apartment in the center of Alfama -the oldest district of Lisbon! 25 minutes on foot to city center and 15 minutes to Jorge Castle. Alfama itself is on "must see" list of every guest of Lisbon. Apartment has absolutely everything you need to relax after a day in the city. Staying there was such a great break for us in our Spain-Portugal journey after series of hotels. Joaquim - the owner - gave us all necessary information to get around in Lisbon. I would definitely stay there again!
