Other Things to Note
BICYCLES - For those who like to cycle, close by there is a bicycle rental shop - Bike Iberia. You can cycle from Cais do Sodré to Belém. A great circuit by the river. And all flat, something rare in Lisboa.
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.

This is the second time I have stayed here (first time in 2012), and this visit was just as wonderful. I think it's the hosts' attention to detail that sets it apart...a bottle of wine, a bowl of fruit, exceptional bed linen, lots of reading matter, guidebooks galore, I could go on...it means they are thinking of their guests' enjoyment and comfort in a way that is so warm and welcoming. It's not just a place to stay but a place to call home while in Lisbon. There are so many great reviews for good reason - a lovely apartment in a great location with tonnes of 'special touches'. My recommendation is to book - now!
Ines and Antonio did everything possible to make us feel welcomed and at home. We were travelling with a baby and they had a cot bed and stair safety gate ready. We had everything we needed and more - there was even a lovely bottle of local wine. The apartment itself is perfectly located and stylishly furnished - exactly as in the pictures. The stairs are quite a climb and there is no air conditioning so it was quite hot, but we went in the middle of summer. There are two fans which helped a bit. I would recommend this place to all who can climb a few flights of stairs.
Schon die schriftlliche Begrüßung bei der Buchung war außerordentlich umfangreich, warm, freundlich und informativ. Inês und António haben an buchstäblich ALLES gedacht, sogar an nette Kleinigkeiten, die wir nicht erwartet hatten.
Wir bekamen einen großartigen Empfang in dieser geschmackvoll eingerichteten und wunderbar ausgestatteten Wohnung. Es gibt nichts, was wir vermisst hätten.
Schon der Eingang und das Treppenhaus sind ein Erlebnis der besonderen Art. Fantastisch!
Alles war blitzsauber. Zur Begrüßung hatten Inês und António uns einen Imbiss und Getränke bereit gestellt.
Es gibt viele schöne Bücher und auch Reiseführer. Eine tolle Idee ist die Challenge Box.
Extrem aufmerksam war auch das kleine Memoboard, auf dem wir uns Nachrichten ausgetauscht hatten.
Vielen lieben Dank noch einmal für alles. Schade, dass wir uns nur einmal kurz getroffen haben. Vielleicht dürfen wir ja wiederkommen...
Liebe Grüße von Mara und Kathrin
Beautiful apartment, close to everything you need; river, metro, train station, shops, restaurants, bars. Antonio and Ines were great hosts who answered any questions we had very speedily. Everything about the apartment functioned well - great shower, fans if hot, lots of lamps to read, even a dishwasher and useful basics for cooking like oil, herbs and spices. Coffee machine a plus and lots of interesting books and guides. Altogether a lovely space and lovely people. Would thoroughly recommend. Thank you Antonio and Ines!
This is perhaps one of the nicest apartments I have seen, in a great location. Anyone who doesn't mind walking to the 4th floor (we didn't) would find a lovely apartment with a great view. Here is where I want to stay, if possible l, next time I visit Lisbon.
This apartment was so lovely and perfect. Ines and Antonio were wonderful hosts. We traveled with our three-year-old and she loved this apartment. The location is perfect and the apartment is exactly as described.
Great apartment! Super easy key pickup, tons of tips about what to do in Lisbon, and very good communication with hosts. Also the snack provided when we arrived was awesome. Apartment was in a great area, super close to everything you'd want to see as a tourist in Lisbon. Definitely recommend and would stay here again!
About the Host, Inês & António
We are a couple, from Lisbon. We love this city and we know it by heart. We also love to travel and know what we expect when travelling.
We are lucky to manage a beautiful renovated historical apartment in the center of Lisbon. All was planned in maximum detail, ready to welcome you to Lisbon.
The apartment was supposed to be used only by family and friends, but one of those friends told us about Airbnb. We went and checked it, 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.
Feel free to drop a word, and ask any question. We will be glad to answer all we can.
