Sergio has been a great host, very helpful by giving us a few precious tips on the city. The apartment was very pleasant, spacious, clean and confortable. The location is a trendy, lively neighborhood, a few minutes away from any facility and not far from the seashore. We had a great stay. Thank you !
We (me and a friend of mine) were teased by the pictures of this obviosly nice apartment. The contact in in forehand was very convenient. The host was extremly helpful!
The apartment absolutely delivers what it promises.
It is direct in the center of a nice district with bars, some good restaurants and stuff like that. I guess when you want to be in the middle of the city to have a spot where to start from your daytrips in the city - this is the place to be. It was very comfortable to have two bedrooms which both where pretty big. The kitchenette delivers everything you need and the livingroom was very nice, too.
I can highly recommend booking this. There's really nothing to claim for us.
Thank you again!

O apartamento do Sergio e muito bom. Bem localizado, num bairro muito movimentado de Lisboa. Ele nos esperou no apartamento e foi muito gentil. A única desvantagem é que não possui ar condicionado nem ventiladores. Estava muito quente, chegou a fazer 39 graus em Lisboa, agora em Junho de 2015, era impossível ficar no apartamento sem sentir muito calor. Durante a noite dormimos com as janelas abertas, aí o barulho atrapalhava o sono.
Olá Vera, obrigado pela recomendação, real mente poderia ser melhor, no entanto a descrição da Airbnb é muito detalhada e não menciona que o apartamento tem AC ou ventilação. Em Lisboa as casas em geral não têm AC e as que têm tem valores de arrendamento mais elevados por causa dos maiores consumos eléctricos e equipamentos.
Mas tomarei em conta sua recomendação para melhorias futuras.
Hi Sergio was there to let us in and show us around & generally was great to deal with. He left us a bottle of wine which sadly we didn't have time to drink! The apartment was perfect - light, bright, great design & really central. Definitely recommend.
Das App. ist genau wie Beschrieben, alles sehr schön und sauber!
Die Lage ist absolut perfekt zentral, nur sollte man auf jeden Fall bedenken, dass es vor allem am Wochenende Abends sehr laut auf den Straßen wird… Schlafen mit offenen Fenstern kann man nicht. Wir hatten trotzdem einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt, Sergio ist ein sehr guter und netter Host!
Our host was great. He stayed and waited for us even though our arrival time was delayed and the trip from the airport took longer than expected. He gave us a tour of the apartment and described how everything worked. He left us clear directions on how to contact him and access the Wifi. He also gave us directions to an exceptional restaurant (Sea Me) and to the grocery store. Very friendly and helpful.
The apartment was just as expected from the website. We have no complaints about the facilities. The beds were comfortable, the shower was great. As mentioned in other reviews, the street noise is quite loud until about 3:00 am as this is a very central location (Baix-Chiado) but if you bring earplugs it is fine. The location is so close to great restaurants, shopping etc. that we found the noise was a fair trade off. The building itself was very quiet. We had no problems getting where we wanted to go on the bus, metro or train. The metro and train station is only two blocks away towards the water.
Our whole experience was wonderful. I would give this 4 1/2 stars ( the only issue being the noise) but the system wouldn't let me give half stars.

About the Host, S.
I and Lisbon, Lisbon and I... to cut a long story short.
Born and raised in Lisbon, (all family after 3 generations, living in city centre), Architect, I work in films as Production designer and Art director, creating ephemeral spaces.
Always living the city life, from day to night and overnight, always travelling, living and working around the world, I have done a little bit of everything you can imagine.
I have designed myself all the places I rent in Airbnb, so, I like to think that, in terms of Airbnb, my spaces will select to stay, people that I will like, as also they will like the work i did in this spaces.
I'm not a person dedicated to tourism or to welcoming and showing Lisbon, I just want to rent my places.
It happened to me to start this, 1st by having some properties in the city center and 2nd by dwelling myself in the BICA neighbourhood, in LISBON, where Lisbon's most photographed street, RUA DA BICA DUARTE BELO, ( a "must see" in the city).
It descends a hill from BAIRRO ALTO to the riverfront, (the urban structure looks like s fish spine), and the streets that cross it form a charming residential neighbourhood known as BICA, in ancient times connected to the river and is economic activities.
That picturesque street is known for it's funicular, the iconic BICA TRAM car, that cooly creaks up and down the hill, as tourists snap photos.
Framing the funicular there are pastel coloured buildings and houses, alongside of the street, with the river in the distance.
At night all this quietness changes into a hip area with the opening of a few nice bars and restaurants, and then, you really want to be there!
A strange vehicle, as if come out of the imagination of the novelist Jules Verne, with an amazing design circulates in the city of Lisbon.
The original vehicle contained reservoirs of water that filled the highest point, and emptied at the lowest point, working in pairs, connected by a cable system, running by the difference of weights, the so called, FUNICULAR system.
Conceived by Portuguese engineer, Raoul Mesnier du Ponsard, the funicular was installed in 1892.
Due to its enormous historical importance, cultural and touristic, the elevator was classified National Heritage in February 2002.
