Ricardo and Carla's house is absolutely fantastic. It's even better than pictures. It's perfectly located in Barrio Alto, near all the main attractions of Lisboa.
House was clean and ready for our arrival, which waw before the check in time. Ricardo and Carla provided us a lot of useful information prior our trip, and answered all our questions fast and in a complete way.
Ricardo met us in the house and took us for lunch to tell us more about Lisboa. He even offered to pick us from airport as there was a metro strike.
The house is very well equipped, with all the necessary stuff for our stay. Bed was so confortable!
I strongly recommend this appartment, and would deffinitely return to Lisboa and to Ricardo and Carlas house. Thanks for all!!!
We felt very welcomed by Ricardo who explained the apartment and gave good tips for things to do. Bairro Alto is a great place to hang out. Everything is on the doorstep of the flat.
Estamos muy contentos con nuestra estadía en Lisboa. Ricardo nos ayudo en encontrar sitios para comer y visitar. Además nos recibió con un vino de bienvenida. El departamento está ubicado en una zona perfecta y tiene todos los elementos necesarios. Sin duda volvería . Gracias Ricardo.
The apartment of Ricardo and Carla is located at "bario alto" which is the hot spot in lissabon. What ever you like to do it s only a few minutes away. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. The bathroom is clean and the bed is comfy.
Ricardo is really kind and helped us in every situation and gave us great recommendations.
All in all we had an amazing stay! Thank you very much.
Had a great stay at Carla & Ricardo's as the end to our week in Portugal! Carla gave us great directions which made meeting her at the apartment easy. She also gave us some great recommendations for a few restaurants in the area. The apartment is really cute, lots of light and in a fun neighborhood that comes alive at night. We enjoyed drinking wine on the balcony and watching the people pass below between the bars and restaurants, once you close the doors though it is really quiet...we had no trouble with noise or sleeping. The kitchen is stocked with all you need to make a simple meal, cup of tea or coffee...we felt very at home and loved taking breakfast on the balcony. The bathroom is small but it worked fine for us, the shower was nice and hot with good pressure. The location was perfect for us to explore Lisbon...and then fall into a cozy bed after we'd worn ourselves out!!
We had an amazing time staying at Ricardo and Carla's beautiful apartment. Carla gave us a lovely warm welcome and some good tips on where to eat! They were also flexible with our check out time as there was no one checking in on the day that we left.
Fantastic location, lovely balcony - we would recommend it to anyone looking at staying in Lisbon. We're hoping to come back soon and we'll definitely be staying here again!
