This was probably my favorite apartment I've stayed in with airbnb. The moment we arrived, Sandra equipped us with amazing information about the city, the attractions, restaurants etc. She even provided us a complimentary bottle of wine! She was also very communicative and made sure we were comfortable throughout the trip. The location of the apartment was a minute away from the metro, grocery store, and is practically in the heart of lisbon. Thanks so much for the hospitality Sandra and Gonçalo!
Beautiful flat, beautiful position. Goncalo sent me all the informations about how to arrive, what to see in town, where to eat.
Sandra is the kindest housekeeper.
We had a lovely stay at Goncalo's flat! We had been to Lisbon before so we were extremely eager to go back and to get to know the city better. Goncalo was very helpful and patient with us :)
Great apartment in an excellent location. We were walking distance to most sights. We travelled with our 3 month old baby and our hosts were very accommodating, providing a cot and baby bath. They also provided many useful tips and advice on things to do and see.
Unfortunately, our flight was slightly delayed, but this was no problem for Sandra, who greeted us with a bottle of wine and a smile for our 5-day stay in Lisbon. She explained everything to us and provided a huge amount of information on the city and its sights, as well as places and things to avoid.
The apartment was clean, modern and extremely comfortable, and we immediately felt at home in the city.
We can't speak highly enough of our experience with the apartment, Lisbon and Airbnb.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time in Rossio Square Boutique Apartment. Sandra was very welcomming and gave us nice tips on things to do and see - and very good restaurants to visit. The apartment was exactly as expected (the pictures are very true!), and it was very nice and clean. The location was perfect since we could walk to more or less everything - and it is hidden from the crowded streets, which means there is no noice during night time. We would recommend this apartment for everyone who wants to explore the lovely city of Lisbon.
An AirBNB win!!
Where to begin?
The location – walking distance to many awesome spots, including all the major touristy stuff you’ll want to see if you’re in Lisbon for the first time, and many other cool places the hosts can tell you about!
The space – impeccably clean, thoughtfully designed, and well equipped.
And the welcome – just above and beyond. The stress of travelling melted away as we walked into the apartment to find a smiling Sandra, a bottle of wine, chocolates on the pillow, a welcome note on the fridge, a cot all set up for our baby, and a very detailed manual containing every morsel of information we might ever need.
Thank you so much, Sandra and Gonçalo. You are AirBNB champions!
