IDÉALEMENT situé pour visiter Lisbonne, l'appartement de Ricky est confortable, décoré avec goût et dispose de tout ce dont vous avez besoin (lave vaisselle, lave linge). L'accueil est parfait (transfert possible depuis l'aéroport sur demande), le contact avec Ricky est facile, notre hôte prend soin de nous! Bref je vous conseille ce lieu, vous vous y sentirai comme chez vous.
Ricky and Diana were so helpful and patient despite the arrival delays on our end. Excellent hosts. The apartment is beautiful, spacious, and comfortable. The location can't be beat! Alfama is the ideal base in Lisbon, with a lovely neighborhood feel but easy access to transportation and other popular spots. I honestly wish I could have stayed forever.
The apartment was lucent really modern and tastefully decorated. It was really light and airy. Ricky was very helpful with local information which meant we experienced some great local hangouts. Would definitely recommend
We did not meet ricky but he was very helpful in all his emails. His partner Marina was really welcoming, organising our travel from the airport and making sure we were settled in their beautiful flat. The flat was really clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower was fabulous! We were worried about the lack of air con as the weather was super hot, but the flat actually stayed comfortably cool, especially with the windows open at night. The flat was in the perfect location, just a walk away from everything we could want. What a wonderful week!
This was my first trip to Lisboa and my boyfriend and me couldn't have had a better host than Ricky. Ricky is absolutely reliable in communication, before the journey, he has provided us with plenty of useful information about Lisboa as well as moving around the city, and he even offered us help with organising transfer from/to the airport. The apartment is exactly as depicted, very beautiful and clean. The location is very central (Alfama), so it is a perfect starting point for exploring the city, even on foot. At the same time, the street the apartment is located in is very calm, without any traffic at all, so we could sleep like babies every night. For my boyfriend and me, Ricky's apartment was a perfect "home" for the days we spent in Lisboa and we will definitely recommend it to our friends. Besides the apartment itself, we were really happy with Ricky as host - he wants his guests to feel comfortable at all times and gives them suggestions and recommendations to enjoy the "real" (and not very touristic) Lisboa.
We never met Ricky in person but we were taken care of by Marina and Mr Mario.
The apartment is spacious, super stylish and well furnished and equipped (also the kitchen is well equipped). We really had a wow effect when arriving and enjoyed our 4 nights.
Mr Mario latter picked us up from the airport (20€). Ricky allowed us to store the luggage at another apartment while ours was prepared- thanks for that!
A hidden treasure, in the center of the charming neighourhood Alfama, provided with a lot of Lisbon tips and tricks. Worth discovering!!!
