Our host made us feel very welcome! He provided us with easy instructions on how to arrive at his apartment, and he was waiting there when we arrived. He spent some time with us giving us great recommendations, maps, and Lisbon guide books and made sure that we were comfortable with how everything worked in his apartment. The location was great (minus the 4 flights of stairs we had to walk up but that just allowed us to drink more wine and eat more!), and the apartment fit our needs -- and the views were nice! All in all, a great experience.
