Wir wurden leider sehr enttäuscht. Ein persönlicher Empfang erfolgte nicht, was nicht weiter schlimm war. Doch auch auf unseren persönlichen Wunsch eines Treffens erschien Laura, unsere Kontaktperson, nicht. Wir wollten uns mit ihr treffen, um den Zustand der Wohnung mit ihr zu klären, die Wohnung fanden wir leider sehr unsauber vor. Vor allem das Bad war sehr dreckig und durch einen penetranten Uringeruch nicht benutzbar. Auch der hochgeprisene Balkon konnte unserer Meinung nach der Beschreibung nicht gerecht werden. Die im Inserat angegebene Waschmaschine und Trockner suchten wir vergeblich. Zum Glück half uns das AirBnB Team aus dieser Misere heraus.
Appartement propre, en plein centre , proche des magasins, restaurants, bus. Belle vue sur la mer.
Le logement est conforme à la description et nous avons vraiment passé une belle semaine avec nos deux enfants. L'appartement est situé dans une rue calme et proche du centre et avec un peu de marche et d'escalade, il est possible d'atteindre de jolies criques pour nager avec les poissons. Les enfants ont adorés.
Le seul petit souci fut l'absence de réponse avec Joana/Laura via l'application Airbnb pour préparer notre arrivée quelques jours avant. Mais nous avons pu quand même récupérer les clés de l'appartement avec l'aide des voisins.
Place was very well located in Hvar. Was left in a clean condition although we were left with no toilet paper which was about annoying. Also the light in the bathroom tripped the power and never turned on again. Communication could of been better in this regard as we were stuck in the dark in the bathroom for the whole of our stay. Overall good place to stay.
The apartment was centrally located, and a quick walk to the beach. Some of the best restaurants in Lagos were just down the street. Comfortable bed, and just as pictured. The AC came in handy during the hot summer afternoons. Tip if you're coming from the bus station: take the route that goes along the water, and then approach from the main square. It's a lot easier than lugging luggage through the back streets (which was Google map's first recommendation).
Nice appartment, decorated with love. The location is very central but still not as loud as being in high street. You are just 5 minutes walk to all restaurants, promenade etc. The view from the balcony to the sea and beach is nice while you are having breakfast.
The appartement has everything you need but is a little bit old/shabby in some points ( kitchen, doors, windows) but the matrace/bed is good.
So if you are focusing on nice decoration, view and central location and not needing a very modern and renovated place than this is a good place to stay at Lagos.
One thing we found very weird.... Laura told us she probably wont be at the flat when we will arrive but will show up later. We should ring the bell at a neighbour and find the keys at the doormat.... Unfortunately no neighbour was there or willing to open so we stood there some minutes before someone came and let us in (after we explained who we are and what we want). We found the keys and started our vacation but we didn't see any host - neither Laura nor anybody else - for the complete 8 days.... Nobody showing up and asking if everything is Ok or if we need anything or anything else. Some might like it that anonymous but I think you also choose Airbnb to get in contact with locals to get some hints, tips, advices.... So a host not being seen within the whole timeframe of 8 days is kind of strange....
But the restaurant which was recommended beforehand by e-mail was very good!
All in all a nice place to stay.
Joanna and Laura were very communicative and helpful prior to my arrival in Lagos, Portugal. They gave me very concise and clear directions (plus a map!) which proved beneficial. The place itself is in a suberb location right at the peak of the old historic district. It can be a bit of a trek to make it there since its very hilly and cobbled terrain, but its worth it just for the view from the terrace. The apartment is spacious, with a living room and two bedrooms (one of which is the Masters and the secondary is for children). A great wrap-around terrace had 270 degree views of the city and the water. Warm during the day but very breezy at night (we went June) Very close to restaurants, bars, banks and cafes, and about a 10 minute walk to the Marina!
