The apartment is small but well-equipped, with one bedroom, bathroom with shower, living area and a kitchen. Ana met us when we arrived and greeted us with some port and choccies as well as bread/milk/cheese etc in the fridge. She was very welcoming and also sorted our taxi to get to the hire car when we left. The apartment is cosy and had plenty of space for my husband, 15 month old and I for our 3 days in Lisbon. The castle is literally on the doorstep and we could here the peacocks from our balcony! We ambitiously decided to take the metro and walk up to the apartment, in hindsight we should've got a taxi (lots of bags/pram etc) as it is a very steep uphill walk along cobbled streets. It's on the first floor, quite a narrow set of stairs so we carried the pram up and down which wasn't too much hassle. We'd definitely recommend staying here!
This second floor apartment was clean with comfy beds and attractive furnishings. We especially enjoyed the coffee, bread and yogurt provided by our hosts. The location is very good for exploring Alfama and there are plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby. The only downsides were a bit of noise coming from an upstairs apartment and there isn't anywhere to sit other than the beds. Neither were major problems just minor inconveniences. A very good value overall.
It was a perfect stay and Ana made us feel very welcomed and helped with the taxi bookings, directions and the best places to go/eat. We even had a welcome Port on the arrival and fridge with some food for breakfast. The location is perfect and you can explore all the city by walking or by taking the famous tram 28, which stops just down the hill from the apartment.
I was very impressed with Lisbon and the apartment. I would definitely return and book it again.
I would definitely recommend this place.
This is a truly charming, albeit very tiny, apartment. It is spotlessly clean and has everything needed. The location is amazing and Ana and Pierre (owners) are wonderful hosts.
