CARS - It is easy to park a car near the apartment. As you are in the center of the city, all the cars pay a fee to park, like in almost all the other big cities in the world. But there are some tricks that we will explain you for cheaper or sometimes free places.
Anyway, you will probably not need a car to visit the city.

ATTENTION: do not forget that it is a 4th floor without lift, and therefore not suitable for persons with mobility problems.

We are really interested that you come to love and enjoy Lisbon as we do, and that the apartment helps you to achieve that purpose very comfortably.

Any questions you have do please feel free to ask. We will be very glad to help in any way we can.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Dear Ines dear Antonio, we just came back from our wonderful trip to Lisabon,
    the City is wonderful but our place to stay was incredible beautiful.
    Thank you so much for everything. Unforgetable! Astrid&Randolf

  • We really enjoyed our stay here. The flat is very well located for seeing Lisbon and many sights are within walking distance. It is comfortable and charming, spotless.
    Although we didnt meet the hosts, it is clear from the attention to detail such as milk, rolls and fruit awaiting us when we arrived, water and wine in the fridge and especially the fresh flowers everywhere that they are a warm giving couple.
    I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to anyone. Great first time experience of Lisbon.

    April 2014
  • This place was incredible, even nicer than anticipated. Easy access from the Lisbon airport via aerobus, and the concierge of the building is so sweet and helpful. Great light and super cozy upstairs, had everything we needed (even though we didn't spend a whole lot of time there!) There are some great guide/reference materials to help plan your days. Busy street during the day, but you're so high up you can barely hear any city noise. Shower has great water pressure. Very clean and lovely all around.

  • The apartment was really great, clean and very cozy, Inez and Antonio have done their best to make the place a home. The apartment is closely located to nice neighborhoods and a relaxing place to relax after a day in the city. Breakfast was arranged at arrival and Inez was available for support if needed! All in all a place I can recommend!

  • I can only confirm the amazing ratings and comments below: It is a pleasure to stay in the flat of Inês and António. Maybe some notes that have not been mentioned yet: No need to worry about the fourth floor - the stairs are reasonably high and easy to climb. Parking was way easier than expected: Either on the street at Cais do Sodre (around Portugalia restaurant, free after 1900 and on weekends park) or in the garage at Calcada do Combro 74 for (guarded, 13€/24hrs, if you need something throughout the day). António even researched some more options and then drove me there to check it out myself - just one example of the excellent hospitality! Other examples: They gave us dedicated hints on where to go with children, they let us in early because or flight arrived in the morning, they put fresh flowers in every room and they welcomed us with a breakfast. When they invite you to come by, just do it - very very friendly people :-) The price seemed a bit high for us at the first sight, but then it was very worth every penny (other people already highlighted cleanliness, speedy internet, warm water without any hazzle, good public transport etc.). Regarding noisyness at Cais do Sodre: The bedroom with the window to the front was quite noisy on Saturday night - all other days were fine. The bedroom with the windows to the back were all quiet.
    Summarizing: We loved it :-)

  • In maart hebben wij 4 nachten in het appartement van Ines en Antonio gelogeerd. Het is een aangenaam appartement en van alle gemakken voorzien. Ligt heel centraal in Lissabon. Vlakbij de Taag waar het op de boulevard heerlijk toeven is. Er is een leuk cafe met heerlijke lounge stoelen en prima restaurant (wel reserveren) aan de Taag. Het was een heerlijk, zonnig verblijf. Een aanrader dus.

  • Perfect ! It is probably the best word to describe our stay in Ines and Antonio apartment.
    Great and convenient location, charming interior where we immediately feel "at home", and a wonderful attention from our host.
    From delicacies for breakfast to fresh drink, from very useful information for arrival to good advices about Lisbon... everything was ready for us to enjoy our stay.
    Even if we didn't have the chance to met our hosts, we feel like having old friends nearby, always ready to help and discreet.
    Hopefully being back soon and stay again in your apartment.

  • Besides the fact that Lisbon truely is a stunning city, our fantastic experience of Lisbon was greatly influenced by this awsome apartment. During our stay it was like a second home to us, providing everything we needed and could possibly think of. Lovely interior design, great location and ideal in every way.
    We really spent some quality-time in Lisbon and enjoyed every second. Even though the weather was superb, it wasn't always easy to leave the apartment - there really is a very special vibe and ambience to this place. And although we didn't meet our hosts in person, we always felt very well looked-after.
    Highly recommendable - after all, it's always the details that count...

    March 2014
  • We just loved it! Very cozy, very comfortable, extremely clean and beautiful! It is very well adapted for a couple with kids!
    The location is wonderful. It is at a walking distance from many of Lisbon attractions and it is next door to the metro and train stations.
    It is good example of a old Lisbon type building that was very well reconstructed and furnished. We especially enjoy to see some old Portuguese objects together with for example the design Vista Alegre Porcelain coffee cups!
    It has a beautiful view to the sky of Lisbon (with all the wonderful light) and to the shinning Tagus river.
    The notebooks seems to be very useful tools for the foreigners and were very amusing for us!
    We hope to come back!

    March 2014

We are a couple with kids, from Lisbon. We love this city and know it very well. We've lived here all our life. We love to travel and have been in 4 continents, still missing Australia. We are lucky to have a beautiful historical apartment in the center of Lisbon that we just renovated. All was planned in maximum detail, and we've managed to make it as we imagined. The apartment was supposed to be used only by our family and friends, but one of those friends told us about Airbnb. We went to check it out, and we have decided to try it. When free, we are opening up the apartment for short rentals. We love the spirit of the site of getting people together, making travel so much more interesting. You know what? We are loving it, mostly because we have been very lucky with our guests. We are new here since August 2011 (very old in Aibnb time), but it looks like we have been doing this for a long time:) Feel free to drop a word, and ask any question. We will be glad to answer all we can.
