L'appartement était bien
Nous avons passer un agréable séjour
Nice stay at rui's place. The appartment is well located : bars and restaurants are two minute far from the flat by foot. Rui is a perfect host : feel free to join him whenever you re blocked outside the flat without the keys ! Thanks for everthing !
Our stay at Rui’s was perfect: the position is incredible (right in between Bairro Alto and Chiado, 5 minutes walk from the river and from many cafes at night and shops during the day), the flat was clean and tidy and Rui was very kind. Communication with him was clear and the description on the site was very accurate. We had a great time - Strongly recommended!!
Bon accueil, appartement bien situé, propre, un service au top !
Je recommande fortement !
The location of this apartment is very good, just a few minutes either direction to Cais de Sodre station and Praca Comercio. Lots of restaurants and bars close by including the great Time Out Mercado. Unfortunately the location is right on the side of a very busy street and the noise from the trams, buses and cars was very loud. It felt like sleeping beside an airport runway at times. The apartment itself was a bit old and grubby. It felt like it could do with a good clean - couches and mats were stained in places while the bathroom is tiny. Overall it's a trade off between good (but noisy) location but an average apartment.
Rui's friend Ivo meet us at the airport with the keys and gave us advice on how to get to the apartment using the aerobus which was a lot cheaper than a taxi. We loved the apartment. it is decorated nicely and it really felt like home. It was very nice to come back to after a full day of sightseeing in Lisbon. The neighborhood is great because as a tourist you are right in the center of all the places you want to visit. Also the neighborhood has many great cafe restaurants. You don't need to look for a highly rated one as it seemed like everywhere we ate was great. The people in Lisbon were also very friendly and helpful. The apartment has a very comfortable bed and a great bathtub shower. It looks exactly like the pictures. I would highly recommend Rui's place. Getting around is very easy. You can get a bus pass or if you take the yellow hop on hop off tours you can get free use of the metro, busses and trams plus your tour which gives you an overview of the city. Down the street toward the cais de sodre train station there is a mercado with a great food court with a chef's row. We ate at the mercado twice it was so good! We also took the train to Sintra which is a great way to spend a day. The whole area by the apartment takes several days to explore. We went to the Oceanario and that is a great way to spend an afternoon if you like aquariums. It has sea animals from all the oceans.
Gostamos muito do apartamento. É bem localizado, espaçoso, equipado e confortável.
Tivemos um problema no check in. Chegamos às 10 horas, mas como não haviamos informado o Horário antecipadamente, o Rui nos comunicou que só poderíamos entrar no apartamento às 15:30h. Entretanto, o apartamento começou a ser limpo e ainda estava com os pertences dos antigos hospedes por volta das 16h. Entramos apenas às 17h. Ficamos com as malas em um restaurante perto por todo esse tempo.
Assim , sugiro aos próximos hóspedes acertar com antecedência o check-in.
