Location in centre of lively area of Lisbon, all within walking distance to restaurants, bars, metro, shops, parks, everything! Quiet, very clean comfortable and Ana, the owner, was very helpful, and the places we visited, on her recommendations, were all great excellent. We hope to return!
We enjoyed two full weeks at the appartment with one kid of two and a half years. The appartment is in excellent condition and very stylish. It is very good for a stay with one or two children, greatly equipped with everything you need (including a chicco buggy, baby bed, even sun umbrellas, if you want to go to the beach); if you need anything, the owner will take care of it. Still, one needs to take into account that it's located on the 4th floor — and the stairs are very high. Also, you need to be aware of the general location, i.e. it's on the hill of Barrio Alto. The district itself has a great romantic flair, you literally fall into plenty of restaurants, pastellerias, bars, squares with those cool Portugese kiosks and what have you. Looking out of the appartment's window, you already have a marvelous view over Barrio Alto towards the Castell St. Jorge. As regards hospitality, we have rarely experienced such a considerate and caring person as Ana, a five stars host.
Very comfortable and well equipped apartment with all the central sights of Lisbon within easy walking distance. Also very near to Rossio rail station for day trip to Sintra. Would definitely stay again when in Lisbon.
Excellent rental, fantastic position - close to many sites and great for our group which included a toddler.
Booked in a few nights at this beautiful apartment in Lisbon. Upon requesting the booking, Ana got in touch very promptly and was most helpful in setting up plans for arrival. She also was kind enough to make a restaurant reservation, and print out airplane boarding passes, for me and my colleague. On arrival, Ana and Paulo greeted us at the specified time (short walk from Rossio, but about 200 stairs to climb up the hill to the apartment's location - note that one can avoid the stairs from Rossio, but that takes an extra 5 min or so [not a big deal]) and carefully (but efficiently) explained all aspects of the apartment. They also were generous in providing a small snack as a welcome gift. The views from this 4th floor apartment were superb (great views of the Castle) and the neighborhood, as others have noted, were quiet. Apartment was clean and comfortable. Definitely would book this again if I ever were to return to Lisbon. Thanks to the hosts!!
This apartment is wonderful! It is perfectly located on a quiet street right in the heart of Chiado. There are many restaurants, cafes, shops and sights within easy walking distance. It is very close to Largo do Carmo, a lovely square with the ruins of Convento do Carmo on one side and many lovely restaurants and cafes.
The apartment is modern, nicely appointed and has a spectacular view of Castelo de Sao Jorge. It is in an old building but has been recently remodeled. It is on the 4th floor (5th to an American) so be prepared to climb stairs but the view makes it all worthwhile.
The service provided is excellent. We were warmly welcomed, the apartment was clean and we were given a great tour of the apartment and demo of all appliances. There is an excellent notebook with all of the details for your reference and a whole host of recommended restaurants, cafes, shops, etc. We found many wonderful places from the notebook that we would not likely have discovered otherwise.
Definitely would return!

Most importantly, Ana, our hostess, was extremely nice to us. She was quick to respond to all my emails prior to our travel and was very helpful once the four of us arrived. She had promised some "treats" for us, and she had some very nice beverages and custards for us when we arrived. Secondly, the apartment actually is as stated!!! The pots and pans are actually top of the line, and there truly was everything you need in a kitchen. Most vacation rentals promise a fully equipped kitchen but rarely deliver. In this apartment, the kitchen ware and dishes were very very nice. And there were literally more plush, top of the line bath linens than I have in my home. The closets were really nice, the air-conditioning units were in perfect working condition. From the lamps on the nightstands, to the clean curtains, to the wall decorations, this apartment was very nicely appointed. The bathroom was even very nice. We have stayed in many vacation homes all over and this was really a very very nice place. Evenings were serene and there was no bothersome street noise when we slept with the windows open. AND THE VIEW OF THE CASTLE IN THE EVENING! That was spectacular. I am grateful to Ana for making sure my family had a wonderful stay. Thanks so much Ana!
