Good host. Great location, simple house, good room, not noisy (which is rare in those busy neighborhoods). Don't expect much from the washroom, its clean but small. Kitchen is ok too could use a little more kitchen tools. Great for a few days in Lisbon.
Très bien accueilli à l'heure prévue, le logement est très bien situé dans Bairro Alto, en revanche la plage reste assez loin tout de même. Je conseillerai volontiers cet appartement à des jeunes entre 18 et 25 ans
We found the apartment to be exactly as we expected. It is simple and small (no surprise based on the photos) and extremely well located, on a quiet block just footsteps from great food and nightlife. It served us really well as our home-base for a few fun days exploring the lovely Lisbon. Our host was kind, met us at the expected time, and gave us some great local dinner recommendations to set us on our way. If you're looking for luxury this isn't for you, but if you want something clean and functional at a great price, go for it.
We had a great time staying here. The location is really awesome, particularly for people who want to make the most of the vibrant nightlife in Bairro Alto.
The flat itself is just like the photos, equipped with everything necessary for a pleasant stay. It isn't massive but we found it to be great value for money.
The hosts were very helpful and always quick to answer by message or over the phone.
We had a nice stay, quite small but we warrant so often in the apartment because of the perfect weather and brilliant location. Enough to see and do just around the corner!
Very nice apartment right in the center of Bairo Alto. Still very quiet. Looks exactly like on the pictures!
Thanks for having us!
The apartment was as described and is a good central location. The only negatives for us were that there were no wardrobes to hang clothes (and no iron) and, whilst I found it fine, my boyfriend found the shower small and difficult to use. Otherwise, all else was fine: our greeting upon arrival was prompt, welcoming, friendly and helpful.
However, we did experience one problem when the electrics went off on Saturday morning around 8am. Unfortunately Short Stay Flats do not open until 11.30am on Saturdays so there was no way of fixing this (they do not have an out-of-hours emergency contact number). We had not been notified of any 'office hours', but had been given 3 contact numbers. As it turned out, we called the various numbers 18 times before 11am, with no answer. They never called us back - even after they were open - and we had to go in search of a wifi spot so we could email them. Unable to find a wifi spot we had to use our roaming data (this was at expense to ourselves, not just in monetary terms but also wasted holiday time). We eventually got an email back which advised they would send someone round at 1pm and that we did not have to be in as they had keys. We returned to the apartment at 5pm to find the electrics problem had not been rectified. We contact them again and luckily got an answer and someone was able to come over and sort it out.
We feel this is an important point to raise as there should be 24-hour service for this kind of thing, otherwise it can have quite a detrimental impact on your holiday and is obviously not something you would have to worry about in a hotel or hostel.
Since coming home, we have drawn their attention to the problem -- hopefully this is a point that the hosts will take on board. We have contacted them for compensation and are yet to hear back.
