“Excellent, central location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012

Spent 3 July-nights at LivingLisboa just recently and can definately recommend for the central location close to everything. Minutes from airport bus stop "Rossio", metro 3 minutes, street car 2 minutes. Arrival by car a bit tricky as entrance is in a pedestrian street. However parking for a few minutes on the sidewalk of main street is ok. Entrance is easily overlooked, do not expect a large hotel sign here. Rather look for nr Rua da Vitoria 42. Make sure you have a contact phone number with you. Location is excellent for exploration by foot or public transport, abundance of restaurants and shops around the corner. Baker and small convenience store very close by - convenient for own breakfast arrangements. We booked the suite (502) on top floor giving striking view of rooftops around. For family of 4 definately recommend the suite vs. standard apartment. Simply more open and sitting space. Apartment is light, modern (Ikea kitchen), with TV (limited selection - but who goes to Lisbon for that?), and aircondition in both living and bedroom. Modern bath with only small problems that can be overlooked. Note that concierge is working only part of day (Natasha does speak fluent English, but Joakim does not) and that during night time staff is "on-call". So you have to be self-suffifient. This is a modern, central place for those that are independant and do not have hotel service expectations. As mentioned by others some noise to be expected but do not let that deter you - you are in a city.
There are plenty of young men offering you "drugs" on the street but ignore with a smile and they likely leave you alone the next time you walk by again. Clean and comfortabel beds, kitchen with basic appliances, doors with key card. A word of caution: this property does not have sprinklers or smoke detectors, no fire extinguisher in the apartment or in the hallways. There is only one staircase as a way out. For those concerned and used to such safety requirements you should be aware before booking.
Of course more people asking questions about these measure may have owner quickly reconsider, right?

Room Tip: Book the suite for view and enough space for 2 or even 4

We booked 2 nights the place is very nice and clean. The apartment is big enough to feel at home.

The bed is comfy and the pillow were brand new.
The bathroom, looks brand new too.

Could be noisy on the street downstairs by night but if you visited all day long Lisboa, you won't have to be worry to have a good night sleep even a rest during the day.
The concierge is only talking portuguese but you can understand him well with the international sign language ;)

The place for the price is very good, I would def if the price are the same go back there for few days.

The automated check in was really easy and we received a text before we arrived in the country with specific instructions.
Really good facilities and a few yards from the baixa metro station (invaluable) restaurants, shops, santa justa elevador and the waterfront all within walking distance ( flat roads unlike the bairro alto!)
The rooms were clean and spacious. The wifi did work for us and the tv has 2 english channels (news). There is a lift in the building and the power shower was really nice!
The only downsides were that the double bed were 2 singles pushed together and the noise outside at night can be annoying but using ear plugs fixed that! Overall we really enjoyed our stay and found it good value for money.

THey did not have a room for me. It was prebooked 3 months in advance. I arrived with a booking reference on SUnday night and they told me they were full and this was a mistake of my agent. I booked with lastminute. Lastminute told me that the booking was cancelled on the same day I travelled. THey did not charge but no compensation to being on the street till 2am in a busy town to eventually find an overpriced bed to sleep.
If you do not mind that, go ahead.

We arrived at the apartments at about 9pm and found the automated check in really quick and easy. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the apartments with some really nice touches which make all the difference. The location is perfect for exploring Lisbon. There is a little bit of noise (until about midnight) from the street cafes below but we thought that this added to the atmosphere of being in the centre of things!

There policy when booking or inquiring about pricing states no charge if you cancel within 24hrs. but they charged my credit card. I canceled the same day I made a reservation 2 weeks before my check-in date. They ignored my emails when I tried to cancel my reservation.
Solyame Real Estate finally responded to my cancellation but never refunded my money.
There website/booking site looks professional and there apartments also look nice but they are scammers.
