Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a fantastic time in Lisbon staying at Francisco's apartment. The flat had everything me and my friends needed for a comfortable stay in Lisbon. It was well furnished and homely.

    The best aspect was the location. It's in walking distance from all the best parts of Lisbon. Baixa and Alfama were on our doorstep, and Bario Alto was 5 minutes away walking. There were some fantastic bars and restaurants close by, and lots of sights to see.

    There was also a supermarket just up the road which was very convenient. A large parking lot also came in handy when we couldn't find any street parking.

    It was a very enjoyable stay, and the comfort of Francisco's apartment made Lisbon very welcoming.

  • This lovely apartment on madalena was just perfect for our weekend in Lisbon! The apartment was very spacious and extremely close to the city center and the water--all walking distance. Francisco was a great host and provided maps and suggestions for restaurants in the apartment which were all very useful for our stay! I would definitely stay here again!

  • Our family, including children and granma, had a wonderful stay. We highly recommend this appartment, given its cleanliness, great location, modern amenities and charm. We will return again whenever in Lisbon. Francisco was very responsive and helpful.

  • Great place and perfect location. Everything went really well and Francisco is a very nice host.

    November 2013
  • We had a wonderful stay at Francisco's in a clean and very comfortable appartment right in the centre of Lisbon, close to the main sights and public transports. Francisco was very helpful in helping us find our way around and making our stay as easy as possible. He offered to book a taxi for us at a very affordable rate (and for 9 people!) to to pick us up at the airport and drive us directly to the apartment. Definitely recommended!

  • The apartment is really central and great for exploring Lisbon. It was clean and beautifully furnished and Francisco was very helpful. The only drawbacks were that two of the bedrooms were internal rooms without windows, so a little claustrophobic and a further bedroom was really small. In addition only one of the two bathrooms had a toilet, which was a challenge with 8 of us staying there. It may be helpful if future guests are aware of this, but all in all we had a great stay.

    June 2013
  • Francisco was very helpful and available if we needed any assistance. He was on time for both our check-in and check-out from the apartment, and made sure that we had all the information we needed for a great stay.

  • This truly is a charming little apartment! We were 7 people staying at the apartment and we all enjoyed being here. It is as nicely decorated as the photos depict, clean, and well-equipped! It is also in a really convenient location in the downtown area. Francisco is an excellent host - he is very responsive and welcoming. Definitely recommend this apartment.

  • The apartment was beautiful -- we are traveling for a year, camping and renting apartments along the way. This was one of the most nicest apartments we have stayed in. It seemed like an interior designer had spent some time -- there were handmade touches -- like a sardine-shaped lamp, poems tastefully stenciled on the walls in Portuguese. We're a family of 7, and the apartment was a good size.

    Just inside the front door were shelves and hooks to store jackets, shoes, etc. One large bedroom with 3 single beds. 3 other bedrooms -- 2 were small and one was larger with a double or queen-sized bed. The sheets were clean and new -- I'm a little OCD, but I was very comfortable on them. We didn't use it, but there were tons of TV channels. (There was a good selection of child-appropriate pay TV movies.) There was a Keurig-style coffee maker that made great coffee (but they charged for it, but that didn't seem like a big deal to us).

    The location was excellent -- it was very close to the castle and pedestrian walkways / shopping. There was a large grocery store about a 4 minute walk away. There was usually parking available near the grocery store -- although we had a hard time finding parking when we first arrived.

    We totally enjoyed ourselves, and we'd go back in a heartbeat.

  • Our stay at Madalena was absolutely great! The apartment is absolutely amazing, and has all necessary commodities. Francisco was really helpful in recommending us place to visit in Lisbon. We'll definitely be back there on our next trip to this city!
