I selected this unit for it's location. Wanted to be in the old part and that was certainly the case. Due to the location, there was lots of noise from business below, which played very loud music all day. Due to location you have high traffic being on the river road. The room itself was spartan, pillows need to go in the trash. Mattress, very hard. Bathroom had mold and roaches in the tub. Kitchen and all of the apartment needed a good scrubbing. Did I mention the roaches?
The room and bathroom are very nice and clean. The apartment is in the heart of Amalfa, the place to be when you like fado.
In the kitchen, which you share with a few other people (you hardly notice they're there) is everything you need.
The bed is fine.
We had a lovely time in Lisboa and the apartment!
The location of the apartment was close to the water, nice restaurants and within 10-15 minutes walking distance to the main area of Lisbon. The bedroom space was nice and bright. The room we stayed in was on the street side so there can be a little noise from the traffic if you don't mind it.
Our stay was really perfect. We didn't meet Mercedes but she informed us of everything in advance and was always available by phone.
The apartment is big, clean and really well located. The only thing was that we didn't have any window in the room and in the common spaces. Except for that everything was great!
The apartment is great, located at a central spot that is ideal for exploring the city, nicely decorated and well equipped. The room is bright and big. Mercedes was a great host, very warm and helpful and gave us a lot of helpful advice about her city. I highly recommend!
