We kindly request our guests to act responsibly and respect other residents and local legislation at all times. Please do not forget that you are sharing a building with other guests and neighbours. We will not hesitate to call the police in event of excessively disruptive behaviour. We trust that you will respect the peace and quiet of this traditional residential area.
Overall we had a great time in lisbon, however the apartment did lack those finishing touches that you expect with the price you pay. For example, travel guides and hand wash.
I must mention that you cannot reach the door of the apartment by taxi. You have to walk through alleyways to get to it. Initially we were a bit anxious about safety, didn't help that once the taxi had dropped us off from the airport he warned us about drugs and how the area was dangerous at night. Cheers for that taxi man! We spent the first two days feeling like we needed to be home before dark. When leaving the apartment, always go left. The route to the right is dodgy and always has at least two or three intimidating people, sometimes in groups. It did however only take three/four minutes walking to be right in the thick of all the action. Which was great. We did also feel instantly safe once within the apartment, and it is really secluded because it's the top floor, very private.
The apartment itself is lovely, kitchen well equipped, shower is powerful. The roof terrace is amazing and catches the sun all day long. Air con is great and the bed is super comfy.
When visiting lisbon make sure to visit Cascais and go to an amazing Indian resturant, Masala. Out of this world curries. Cheers
Begrüßung war nett. Wohnung ist wie beschrieben zentral gelegen (martim moniz) und mit allem notwendigen ausgestattet.
We enjoyed our stay in the appartment, the contact was very easy, the appartment managers Mauro and John were very friendly and helpful, John explained us everything in detail and gave us some advice about the city.
The appartment is very cosy and the round-shaped bed is quite a fun:) The terrace is nice, however, it does not correspond to the photos, because in reality there are high barriers on the terrace. We have the impression that some photos of the appartment do not correspond (for example photo 6 or 36, as well as all the photos of the terrace seem to be taken in another appartment).
The great plus was the air-conditionning, our stay was in February, so it was quite cold outside and AC was very helpful.
The apprtment is on the third floor without elevator, which can be tricky if you have heavy luggage or if you are travelling with children, but John helped us to take our luggage upstairs.
On the overall, you have everything you need for the short stay (even if the appartment is not spotless clean for perfectionnists, but it is correct), which is very practical, so we would reccomend you to stay in Roger's appartment, especially because it is close to everything and you have very nice views.
Thanks for your review - I'm glad you enjoyed your stay!
I can understand your confusion about the photos - they are definitely from this apartment, but they were taken BEFORE the bedroom terrace was built. To avoid any confusion in the future, I have deleted those two photos, so thanks for bringing that to our attention.
We did indeed install some white bars as a security measure - as you know, you still get a wonderful view of the city, but it is now much safer, especially if there are any children in the family.
best wishes, Roger.
Tout a été très bien organisé, nous avons reçu les infos dans les temps envoyés par Hugo et avons été très bien accueillis par Marco. L'appartement est dans une toute petite rue très proche de la place Martim Moniz, donc à proximité immédiate de tout le centre de la ville !
Il est confortable, avec une cuisine bien équipée et, particulièrement appréciable, la climatisation pour dormir au frais ! Enfin la petite terrasse est tout à fait charmante, avec une vue très large sur la ville (on aperçoit même le Christ de l'autre coté du Tage !). Le quartier, lui, est pittoresque, avec en comité d'accueil la mamie lisboète à sa fenêtre qui a suivi notre arrivée dans la rue... Quant à Lisbonne, comme d'habitude, c'est du bonheur 3
We really enjoyed the apartment. The location is good, not too far from Rossio square.
The best feature is certainly the terrace with a great view of the city.
You need to walk-up a few stairs to get there, so we recommend a stay in this apartment to anyone that is not afraid to climb a bit to get there. We would go back for sure.
