  • Très bel appartement, et situation parfaite ! Nous avons passé un très bon séjour chez Barbara ! Nous sommes tombés pendant les fêtes de Saint Antoine et l'ambiance dans l'Alfama était géniale ! Une très bonne adresse à recommander !

  • Barbara was a fantastic host! She met us near the Museu do Fado (which is right beside the apartment) and showed us the space etc. Everything in the apartment was great... The view, is the best! Also very convenient to have a washing machine inside the place. We were lucky to stay during part of the national holidays so were able to be right inside Alfama during the street parties. Perfect location!

  • Appartement bien situé dans le beau quartier de l'Alfama. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Laura, une amie de Barbara. L'appartement correspondait bien au descriptif mais les photos donnent l'impression que c'est un peu plus grand.
    Au niveau de la propreté, il y aurait un effort à faire au niveau de la cuisine.

  • We stayed in Barbara's flat with three other friends. Really enjoyed our time in Lisbon. The apartment is tiny but comfortable and very good located.

  • Everything we needed for a short stay in Lisbon. Appartment is in a great location, very authentic - restaurants & cafés nearby - easy access to metro & train station for Oceanaria. We liked this area the best. Barbara has been a great host - v accommodating with the check in & even searched for a lost bag at the police station for us with no hesitation - v impressed. Many thanks. We wouldn't hesitate to come back.

  • Well, we have met with Barbara in a Museum close to the apartment at 18:00 o´clock, we prefer meet at (phone number hidden) h. but she only could meet at noon or at 6 (there are some mails with the conv), I gave her 2 mobile number phone where she could find us if there were any changes.
    At 18:00h there were nobody at the museum, we were waiting for her around 40 minutes and finally we decided to call her.
    She said that she was in the apartment while we have met in other place without any new about the changes, she new that
    we have been all the day driving from the north of Spain, we were very very tired and when we arrived to the apartment she were doing the laundry after having a shower, internet didn´t work during all of the days, there weren´t a bed and other things that there are in the website... We just wanted to let her know that the situation wasn´t correct and everything was strange she wasnt doing well the things and we were disapointed, it there wasn´t that we have been contracted. We were really sorprised with her and with the situacion.
    First of all, insted of apologized, she gave us the option to give us the money back and we look for another place to sleep, something
    impossible and unbelievable for us. Finally we accept the conditions cos we only wanted to have a good days in lisboa and in that moment, after all the day driving we hadn´t another option.
    Leaving aside all of this, we have had a very nice days in Lisboa and in the apartment .And I think that our actitud was normal in that situation. The apartament was very nice, comfortable and well located and we would rent it again knowing before the real conditions. Just was the lack of information and the little interest the negative part.

    Response from Bárbara:

    I've never had such a rude guest complaining about so many things, that for me as a very experienced host, never encountered before. Who would complain about a host having a shower before the meeting??? About the laundry, I was just making sure that they would have enough linen so they would be more confortable. I don't understand this complaint too. About the internet she was right, I did my best to solve it and to find means for compensating for the trouble. This things happen to any host. In the house rules is explicite that when she would arrive to museu do fado, she would have to contact me, and she didn't. So it's normal I didn't come to the museu before she called. Lack of communication I suppose.
    Having a guest as rude as that, I didn't what to rent my apartment because I felt very very unconfortable, and I only did because I knew they had no where else to go and they were very tired form the road trip. In the end, she left the apartment nice and clean, but I hope I will not have to go trough an experience like this ever more!

Hi! I'm a marketeer working for a sustainable world. I love to travel and learn with people and cultures. I've been traveling for 6 months around 20 countries between Israel and Cambodja informally studying sustainable marketing. Apart from all this, I'm really interested about all branding issues, and sustainable marketing and management processes and models that can add value not only for the business in question but also for the society itself!
