This place is a gem. 60's furniture with modern paintings and collages on the wall (for sale), toiletries from Claus Porto, breakfast big enough to feed two families ( and delicious too, brought to us every morning in a beautiful basket), the cake, fruit bowl and port wine glass upon arrival,the great beds, sheets, towels... The building has style, with the old lift and the beautiful staircase. Above all you could feel the care and attention to detail that make you feel welcome and at home.
Almirante Reis, where the flat is located, is becoming hip, one of my favourite shops (a vida portuguesa) is opening a big shop in August 2013, mainly with decorative objects and all the traditional, revived portuguese crafts).
For those travelling with small children, there is a small park in the two squares closest to the appartment.
Very well located with a close by metro station (alameda)
The only downside is the noise: you can hear the metro (but you get used to it) and you can hear noise from other flats (but we only had noisy neighbours one night).
Looking forward to get to know the other flats in their portfolio...! (Porto and soon Tomar)
