Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 July 2014

The reception is very good, the place is well located for the center, very good price.
The only big problem is that the house is badly soundproofed! The street is very noisy at passing cars and interior view of the cottage is very sound.

I just wanted to explain that everything was clarified with the kind guest through an exchange of private emails. I undesrtood that his disappointment was due to an unpleasent event occurred in the guesthouse ( noisy and talkative guests were hosted in the same night and he couldn't rest well). Perhaps it was my carelessness not to warn properly these people that they were not the only guests hosted.
Than, the street is a bit noisy and it is not a mistery. We are in the center!
But thank you, dear guest, for giving suggestions to avoid this inconvenience in the future.
I work with a lot of passion and even only one unsatisfied guest in a 1000 is reason of regret for me but also a way to improve the service.
Thanks Yannick. It's good to learn from guests and from my own mistakes

Nice, clean and confortable B&B. Beds are clean, rooms are very well decorated (as you can see in the photos), bathrooms are unblemished, breakfast is adequate and satisfying and the price/quality ratio is outstanding! Ah, and of course, Ariane is a fantastic host, always friendly and helpful!

I stayed here for three nights, all of them good. Steps away from the Metro, minutes away from grand boulevards. Shared space with plenty of privacy. I hardly knew anyone else was there. Fresh breakfast punctual at 8:30 each morning. Simple and comfortable, nothing missing, nothing fancy.

Enjoyed the visit with my wife and children. Arianne is extremely friendly and helpful and even though we were two hours late arriving (because of absolute incompetency by Interrent car rental), she was more worried than annoyed. Continental breakfast and nice quirky interior design makes this a highly recommended stay. Thank you Arianne.

This is a lovely little guest house in a decent part of town. There are several good places to eat nearby which are frequented by locals - but if you want to get to the more touristy stuff it's a pleasant walk down to the centre. Also make sure you try the number 28 tram to Alfama which is beautiful. Arianna is a charming host and will be able to give you lots of tips on the best places to see and also which restaurants to check out for some speciality dishes!

I have travelled a lot and never had such great conditions for that price, extra friendly atmosphere, amazing attitude of the landlady and that great personal touch in interior design, which makes all the rooms very cosy, comfortable and provides a nice space for rest, work, writing etc.
Definitely recommending it to those travelling in Lisbon and would love to stay here again!
