  • Hello, we stayed at Goncalo's place for 2 nights in April. Absolutley perfect location and the apartment is clean and very nicely decorated. We loved the shower and the top floor views.
    Would definitely stay again if I ever go back to Lisbon.
    Do the no 28 Tram from the bottom of the street. Its a must!
    Have fun like we did.

  • We had a very nice stay at Castle-Views appartment for the 2 days we were in Lisbon. The apartment has really nice views on the castle and Lisbon, it is well-equipped with everything we needed, even for a family I think if that is your case (just be aware it is on the fourth floor with no elevator but clearly not a problem for us). It is also nicely located in between Alfama (historic and romantic neighbourhood) and Bairro Alto (dynamic and living neighboorhood with lots of restaurants, shops, bars and pedestrian streets), at a walking distance.

    Sarah was there to welcome us right away when we arrived and was really helpful to guide us in the apartment. You can find maps and travel guides which we happily used. Finally, we were able to leave our luggage after check out and come back to get it at 3pm.

    So for sure I will recommend this place.

  • This apartment is perfect - gorgeous place, lovely views and incredibly comfy environment! It's right in the centre of the old town, really near wonderful restaurants and cafes, as well as all the major sights (and some useful things like supermarkets and pharmacies).

    Sandra and Goncalo were lovely hosts: they let us in on time with no hassle, the place was spotless and they even gave us a bottle of wine.

    I want to go back!

  • We were in Goncalo apartment the first week of March. We were in 4 me wife & 2 kids. The apartment itself is really close to the center & to the Castle. It's bright & clean & has all you could need for your stay. There is no elevator so you have to climb 4 floors to get in, but it was not a big deal even for our kids. Sandra Who was there to give us the jet & show us around is very helpful & kind, she even booked us the taxi for the day We were leaving! I would recommend Goncalo place to all Who wants to stay in a quiet street close to everything!
    Siamo stati a Lisbona la prima settimana di marzo. L'appartamento di Goncalo e' molto bello, pulito e fornito di tutto, esattamente come nell'annuncio. È centrale rispetto alla città e a due minuti dal castello, raggiungibile tramite un ascensore. L'unica cosa da sapere e' l'assenza di un ascensore e quindi la necessità di fare 4 piani a piedi..a Lisbona ad attenderci c'era Sandra che ci ha mostrato l'appartamento ed è' stata molto disponibile anche nei giorni (website hidden) ha addirittura prenotato il taxi per il giorno della partenza. Host consigliato!

  • The three of us arrived into Lisbon from Lagos using Gonçalo's excellent instructions and found his place with no problem. We also found street parking very close by. The apartment was very well equipped and immaculately clean.

    Spending two nights in Lisbon was fantastic and staying at Gonçalo's made it even more special. His recommendation of restaurant and nearby facilities were also spot on.

    Highly recommended.

  • Wir waren zu viert in der Wohnung in Lissabon. Die Lage ist sehr gut, ein Supermarkt war in 5min zu erreichen. Mit dem Aufzug kam man ohne große Anstrengungen zu der Rua Augusta. Dort findet man alle gängigen Modeketten und kann ausgiebig Shoppen gehen.
    Weiterhin ist der Tejo schnell zu Fuss zu erreichen und man kann viele Sehenswürdigkeiten in Lissabon erlaufen.
    Es war ausreichend Platz, besonders das Bad hat uns gut gefallen. Die Küche war sehr gut ausgestattet mit allem was man für den Urlaub benötigt.
    Weiterhin gab es im Wohnzimmer viele Prospekte über die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Stadt.
    Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder hierher zurück.

  • Me and my girlfriend Vicki Spent a wonderful 3 nights in Goncalo's apartment. On arrival we were welcomed by the friendly and helpful Tiago and another nice man. Both showed us the apartment and were very friendly, thorough and professional. Later in the trip Tiago even text us to inform us of a strike on the metro and offered alternative transport methods.

    The apartment itself is quite high up. The stairs aren't a problem and the views are worth it once your there. There are nice views from all windows. I'd recommend dimming the lights and enjoying the view towards the castle at night.

    The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need to use, having cooked ourselves most nights. The shower is great and the bathrooms nice too. The bedrooms are a nice size just be careful you don't hit your head where the ceiling slopes near the double bed. The beds was comfy and lots of extra blankets were available if needed, along with lots of towels too.

    There are two heaters in the apartment, a gas one and an electric one. They keep the apartment nice and warm in the evening.

    We really enjoyed our stay here and didn't have any problems at all. The location is perfect and if i stayed in Lisbon again I would always choose this location. The old town is great to explore, especially on the route up to the castle where there are lots of great view points. It is close by to the trams and town centre aswell as a shop around the corner. Thank you very much
