About this listing
Lisbon Love Apartments are located right in the centre of historic Lisbon - in the middle of the main pedestrian street Rua Augusta. The street is very busy during the day, calmer at night but due to the location it is never totally quiet. Considering that this would probably not be the best option for extremely noise-sensitive guests.
We are just around the corner from Baixa-Chiado metro station, a short walk from Rossio square and Tejo river. Located just a few minutes walk away from the lively nightlife of Bairro Alto, the romantic Fado restaurants in Alfama and the shopping districts Chiado and Avenida Liberdade, the Lisbon Love Apartments are truly in the heart of Lisbon.
Our cozy 2-bedroom apartment is situated on the third floor of a renovated typical XIX century building. Typically these houses were built without an elevator so you have 55 steps to climb.
The apartment is fully equipped and is meant to accommodate 4 people in two bedrooms. One comes with a comfortable double bed (160x200cm), the other has two single beds (80x200cm) that can easily be pushed together to make it a double.
In the small lounge area you will find information about the city and the surroundings, events, restaurants and things to do while you are in Lisbon. It is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a glass of port wine after a long day.
The fully-equipped kitchen offers everything you need to prepare a big meal or a quick snack before hitting the town - you can use the microwave, oven, stove, pots, pans, cutlery and all other necessary cooking utensils.
The apartment has a brand new bathroom with a walk-in shower, equipped with a hairdryer.
The entry to the building is controlled by an entry code, keys to the apartment are provided.
Lisbon Love Apartments are air-conditioned, free WIFI can be used throughout the apartments. Towels and beadsheets are provided by us. In case of a stay more than 7 days a change of bedsheets and towels can be arranged.
There are not many rules in Lisbon Love Apartments - we only wish that our guests treat the apartment as they would treat their own home. Please take the garbage out before you leave, wash the dishes and don't leave any garbage in the bedrooms - just leave the apartment like you would leave your home when leaving ;)
Also please note that the apartment is strictly non-smoking. It is also dangerous to smoke on the windows as it is a busy pedestrian street and it could end up being dangerous to others. It is possible to smoke downstairs outside the building.
O apartamento de Marit é muito charmoso e a localização é excelente. Possui uma cozinha bem equipada, um ótimo chuveiro e ar condicionado - item importante no verão lisboeta. Recomendo!
So, the flat is very comfortable and quaint. You immediately feel like you're at home. The kitchen is spacious and the rooms are great. The pictures online do it justice and the flat met my expectations. It is a very cute, comfy and charming apartment no doubt! Now, having said that, when I read that the flat was in the heart of the "old town" I thought it was just a quiet little sector of Lisbon. BEWARE: You're in tourist-trap center!! If you're a lazy tourist that just wants to be in the heart of the tourist trap cliché, then this will suit you just fine. The unit is practically on the main promenade on Rua Augusta and if you wanted a quiet and tranquil place, this is definitely not it. It is loud, with pedestrians, musicians, vendors and entertainers, and all sorts of exciting touristy stuff. There is not a moment of silence. To top it off, many units in building and across the way are under construction. To make it clear, the area is constantly polluted with non stop noise. I had a hard time falling asleep and at 5AM the construction crews across the way were banging and throwing bricks and debris from a 3rd floor into a truck before the restaurants and shops opened at 9AM.
Though it's my first time using AirBnB, I must say, I have been pleasantly surprised. The only thing I have noticed is that in many reviews on here I noticed people saying the property owners or managers greeted them and gave them information... that was not the case for me, nor has it been my experience, which is a little disappointing. My friends used another site and not only did they have the property owner waiting for them at the door, he actually sat with us (I was with them) and went through a very thorough explanation of the city with a map, and gave myriad suggestions for non-touristy bars, restaurants, lounges and cafés. He spent 30 minutes with us and was most welcoming and helpful. Again, so far, that has not been my experience using AirBnB. I have found it to be quite transactional and impersonal, except the occasional emails to get questions answered, which Marit always did and was available over email.
Would I recommend this flat? Absolutely, but beware of the noise and the fact that there's no washer. The flat is exactly as it appeared in photos, or perhaps nicer.
The place is the perfect place to live in Lisbon. You are very near to the metro and all sights you have too see! Marit is a very nice person! Thank you very much that we had the opportunity to stay there and to explore Lisbon!
A wonderful experience in the center of Lisbon. We thoroughly loved staying upstairs from the hustle and bustle of Rua Augusta. The accommodations were perfect, and very comfortable along with Marit, who provided easy to follow directions from the airport and list of popular things to do in and around the city! Thank you!
The apartment is located fantastic. In the middle of the center! Host Marit gave us a warm welcome and the apartment meets all the basics.
This apartment was absolutely perfect! The location was amazing, in the centre of the old town, 3 floors up so you felt right in the middle of the action. Could easily explore lisbon on foot from there with so mamy great restaurants/bars and suggestions from Marit near by. Beautifully decorated and good size apartment, with airconditioning so perfect to relax after a long day of exploring. I can't wait to come back!!
