“Stylish, modern apartment within the castle walls”
Reviewed 3 weeks ago for a stay in May 2018

person found this review helpful

We found this apartment a great choice, as it was slightly out of town and within the walls of the St. George's Castle, Lisbon. Consequently, the neighbourhood was very quiet at night and by day the hustle and bustle of the tourists queuing for tickets to enter the castle, right beneath the bedroom window was not audible, due to excellent double glazed windows.

We stayed for one week and found it suited us perfectly. The furniture and beds were comfortable, the apartment was spotlessly clean on arrival and sheets and towels in good condition. Fadoflats provided us with fresh coffee and filters for the coffee machine and coffee pods for the espresso machine. Kitchen was well-appointed although we only had breakfast there and never actually cooked anything. My only one negative point was that the kitchen was only supplied with a bread knife and no other kitchen knives (i.e. smaller vegetable knives) to cut fruit etc.).

Shampoo and shower gel were provided and the shower had an excellent pressure. TV and cable channels are provided as well as a strong Wi-Fi signal. There are a handful of restaurants outside the apartment entrance which is busy by day and a nice cafe round to the right for breakfast or coffee if you need it. Top tip - walk sharp right once you exit the castle arches and head down hill taking the next right. Further on downhill is a restaurant called Chapito, with an excellent view. Great location for lunch.

On arrival, we contacted Fadoflats once we had cleared the airport customs, then took the metro to Rossio, then a bus no. 737 up to the castle. Bus stop was right outside Rossio metro station in Praca de Figueira. The bus drops you outside the castle arches and you need to walk uphill to reach the castle ticketing office where our representative punctually met us. The service was seamless and left us feeling impressed.

Great apartment and we would definitely return the next time we are in Lisbon. Note - it is unsuitable for anyone with walking difficulties as the location in Lisbon is reached by steep cobbled streets, and many steps. Inside the front door is a sharp flight of stairs. The bus service from Rossio stops at 21:30.

“Perfect Apt in Perfect Location”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

people found this review helpful

Apt is beautiful - exactly as advertised (see picture). It is an old building but the apt has been completely renovated. It is located in the Alfama area of Lisbon, the oldest part of the city. More specifically it is inside the walls of the Sao Jorge castle- the best tourist attraction.
All main tourist attractions are in walking distance. But bring a good pair of walking shoes.
Be aware that the whole Alfama is very hilly, with a lot of narrow cobblestone streets/ alleys and steep steps: very romantic but not advised for older persons or people with knee problems.

We stayed at this place for three weeks! We had a wonderful time. The apartment had everything we needed and was very spacious. We were traveling with our 3 year old daughter and there was plenty of room for us and our things. Everything is exactly as shown in the pictures and the area is quiet and safe. We loved having Nata Café so close. Mario was very helpful.

Probably there is no better review than acknowledging the fact that the flat is just like the photos and the description and that the experience was great.
Thanks a lot and see you soon again hopefully
