Lovely home, both spacious and clean! Sandra was very helpful and I would highly recommend they're apartment!
Appartement en dernier étage très bien agencé, très agréable à vivre et lumineux dans un quartier central de Lisbonne mais à l'écart de la rumeur. Parfaitement équipé, moderne et décoré avec gout par notre hôte, nous y avons été chaleureusement accueilli par Sandra et y avons passé un excellent séjour avec vue sur les toits ! Nous recommandons l'appartement Boutique de Château-Vue en toutes saisons !!
Appartement très bien situé, à la fois au calme et proche de toutes les commodités.
We enjoyed a lot our stay in this very nice and well located apartment! Gonçalo and Sandra made us feel as we were home. They provided a lot of tips on Lisbon and gave us a warm welcome. Thank you so much from all of us!
Tout était parfait: joli appartement très bien décoré, fonctionnel, le charme de l'ancien en plus (jolie vue sur les toits de la ville). Parfaitement situé dans l'hyper centre de Lisbonne, idéal pour visiter Lisbonne en un week-end et toutes les commodités au pied de l'immeuble (super marché, métro, tramway, restaurants, bars, etc...). Accueil très chaleureux de la part de la propriétaire. A recommander sans aucune réserve.
Fantastic centrally located apartment (the pictures are accurate). We could not have asked for a better host. Goncalo & Sandra provided an excellent guide book to nearby restaurants and sites. We met Sandra when we checked in and she was very helpful in getting our vacation started with a quick overview of the surrounding area. Very much enjoyed our stay and the "welcome" bottle of wine.
Lage, Ausstattung, Einrichtung... alles war super und für ein lange, gemütliches Wochenende in Lissabon genau richtig. Wir waren zu viert und haben uns richtig wohl gefühlt. Der Blick auf die Burg ist sehr schön, weitere Highlights gemütlich zu Fuß zu erreichen und die Gastgeberin Sandra erklärt und erzählt alles was man wissen möchte und sollte. Zudem reserviert sie bei Bedarf Restaurants oder das Taxi zum Flughafen. Kurzum: perfekt! Alles Gute und viele Dank!!
A very lovely equiped and nicly located appartment with an amazing view on the castle. The perfect place for a long weekend in Lisbon. Downtown is a few steps away, supermarket and restaurants around the corner and even though its quite central, the place is quite and calm. We really enjoyed it and - important to mention - the hospitable host Sandra who provided us with many useful information and reservations! Thats how airbnb should always be :)
Many thanks and all the best, muito obrigada e os melhores cumprimentos!!
