“Great Location!”
Reviewed 30 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Swift replies and very accommodating with early check-in. The apartment is right in the middle of the city centre, with Alfama and Bairro Alto only a few minutes walk. Loved the wee balcony and the castle view. Very clean and spacious for two people.

“Lovely little central apartment”
Reviewed 17 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

Great location and the Owner emailed us when we first made the booking - which was the start of excellent and friendly service. He was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We have given him feedback for some minor points -which I think he will take notice and make the changes. We have asked him to keep us informed if he has other apartments available with less stairs or a lift, then we would certainly return, as we see others have mentioned the 80 odd stairs are challenging. On the whole, a well located small apartment with a comfortable bed!

“Clean and central, but very small for 4 persons, no closet, unpleasant smell from outside and overpriced”
Reviewed 9 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The apartment is nicely furnished and clean. It is well situated and close to a lot of attractions.

However, we were disappointed with our stay. The apartment felt much smaller than it appeared on the pictures. Apparently it is for up to 4 guests, but we felt that there was hardly any space to move around. Still you pay extra for the third and fourth person. There is no closet and there are only four coat-hooks and very few coat-hangers. So expect all your luggage to lie around and therefore even less space.

Don't expect any kind of extra service unless you pay for it. Since we arrived in the morning, we asked for a place to leave our luggage. We were told that we could leave our bags in the apartment for an extra charge of 20 €! We had to find out for ourselves that there are several lockers nearby where you can storage your luggage for a few hours. An early check-in would only be free, if we took the suggested private transport at an extra cost of 25 €. We were told that a taxi would cost 15 € (around 16,60 € with luggage), but actually it was only 9 € (11 € with luggage).

A few days before our arrival, we were informed that no toiletries are supplied. So bring or buy your own toilet paper etc. We were told that a toiletries pack would be provided for an additional cost starting at 13 €.

The apartment is humid. And with 4 people staying there it was hard to get the humidity out of there. The towels wouldn't dry within 24 hours. Towel racks might improve the situation, but in the bathroom there were only a few hooks available. When you open the windows for fresh air, you have the feeling that only worse air gets in - a mixture of a greasy and unpleasant smell from all the restaurants underneath - even in the morning. During our stay there was renovation work in the house next door. This made opening the windows on workdays even worse, considering the very loud construction noise. You would expect some kind of compensation, but no such thing was offered.

We didn’t get to meet the owner and we were asked to pick up the keys ourselves at the restaurant underneath.

Sadly, we felt that this apartment was just about moneymaking rather than a welcoming home. Nevertheless the owner asked for 5/5 rating.

All in all, we felt that the apartment was overpriced.

“great location, great independence”
Reviewed 20 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Good impressions I had, met by chance Olivier's (the owner) web site, has been confirmed! To tell the truth, we were looking for a destination for a short trip and it happened before I found the website which showcases his apartment and then we chose to go to Lisbon!
Absolutely great location, both for getting around the city, to get to the airport, to travel by train! It 's very close to Figueira Square, where you can find most useful links, and just as close to Rossio Station! Stumble another neighborhood, very pleasant, with the oldest pastry shop in Lisbon (really just a few meters from the apartment). It 's a pleasure to come down and have breakfast wrapped in a special way to start the day!
The owner was very kind and considerate; before our stay he posted very detailed and valuable information about the apartment and the city, any emergency numbers and pharmacies / hospitals, together with some personal suggestions regarding restaurants, supermarkets, etc. I found it very useful that on the website you can directly chat with Olivier and ask availablity, without waiting to write or email, the contact and the response is immediate! Absolutely also timely in responding to email with any questions or concerns or else!
The setting's lovely and clean, the decor relaxing and harmonious, simple but tasteful. Quiet despite a vibrant street, thanks to the double glazing. We didn't get to use the kitchen because always have our lunch or dinner outside, but it's equipped with everything!
Not only do the maximum score for one thing: the flights of stairs on foot. For us it was not a problem, but perhaps for those with special needs or mobility limitations could be a detail to consider. Another piece of advice I can give is to prefer the Metro to get to the apartment if you have a doubt between Metro and Airbus, because with Airbus, as a lot of traffic congestion, is likely to be a very slow way. Even for transfers airport-apartment owner offers a list of choices depending on your needs! Really efficient! Last thing, importantly, excellent price/quality ratio! I would definitely go back! :)
Enjoy!

“THE MOST LOVELY WAY TO STAY IN LISBON”
Reviewed 24 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Staying in Lisbon has been so lovely thanks to the central position and, at the same time, quiet location of this beautiful apartment. It has been wonderful to sleep in a" white cloud"... nice and friendly, with a lot of space both to cook and to receive friends, both to sleep and to watch TV or to have a rest. It's very confortable (very well equipped, air-conditioning included) and the absence of the elevator is not a problem: the tourist visiting Lisbon usually use the stairway once or twice a day. The position of the apartment is the best to reach in a few minutes all the main attractions in Lisbon. We felt so lucky when we sow the picturesque streets from the apartment balcony and when we could eat something typical just out of the building. The organization and kindness of the owner made the rest of it!

“Perfect location”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed at this apartment at the start of our 3 week vacation. The apartment was perfect and helped us feel like we were part of Lisbon. Beware of the six ling flight of stairs - but it helped us get in shape
