  • The apartment is perfectly located and the view from the window is totally incredible. The sleeping room may seem a bit small but I would recommend this place to my friends anyway. Pity that we didn't meet with Mario in person but he was always ready to help via mail.
    Thank you Mario, we loved Lisbon!

  • The best thing about the apartment is its location!
    First, the apartment looks not exactly like the photos. The rooms are small, decorated with rustic stuff, the kitchen is badly equipped but the view out of the windows is romantic. Unfortunately, the apartment was pretty dirty as we arrived: hair all over the floor, dirty table and tablecloth, smudgy mirror, smelly fridge. As we didn’t meet Mario in person we didn’t request the improvement. This has been a mistake.
    In total: small and old apartment in central location.

  • the appartment is really
    cool, lots of paintings and art on the walls, but it is small.
    Doesn't matter of you sleep there and spend the rest of the day in the city. It's located in the center of lisboa, the funny old trams are very close. the view is truly amazing, especially during sunset. mario is very helpful, a friendly and funny guy, he wrote us a million of tipps for parks, restaurants, concerts and so on. the only two things which were not so great: the wlan is very slow and sometimes doesn't work. and: the appartment was pretty dirty when we arrived, hair all over the floor, the water did not drain off in the shower and the kitchen was not as clean as you can espect. but mario immediately offered go clean once again, so it was not so bad. In total: a nice, but small appartment in good location, nice owner, but a
    little dirty/old.

  • We rented Mario's apartment for two weeks (2 of us, a couple). It was comfortable, clean, and the view from the bedroom (and tiny bedroom balcony) is perfect: framing the castle above Lisbon and the cities' beautiful hills. It's on a narrow road at the top of a set of stairs, so there's little traffic noise, but you have to be willing to climb. It's an interesting part of the center, about 15 minute walk from the downtown sites. We loved the location.

    The bedroom is pretty much just the bed, and the living room is small. We had all our breakfasts at the kitchen table or on a little ledge Mario made on the balcony.

    Mario was also helpful in giving us suggestions for places to see and go out, etc., and quick and kind in his email correspondence!

  • Mario was very friendly. He gaves a lot of advices about places to visit. He also answered all the quastions very quickly. Thanks a lot for these wonderful days and thanks Fede for waiting ;) and of course, it's a nice quiet place to stay and the location is just perfect!

  • El apartamento está cerca del centro, por lo que se puede ir a pié a la mayoría de sitios. Creo que esto es su punto fuerte. Y en caso de tener que coger algún transporte está el metro/bus/eléctrico a dos (website hidden) al aeropuerto es súper fácil y rápido.

    La habitación tiene bonitas vistas y un balconcito también (que creo que no se ve en las imágenes). La cama nos resultó cómoda y descansamos muy bien las tres noches, porque además no había nada de ruido.

    La comunicación con Mario fue rápida y muy fácil. Para la bienvenida, como él no estaba nos dió las llaves y nos explicó todo su pareja.

    Un punto menos bueno fue el WIFI, la velocidad muy mejorable, había ratos que ni funcionó.

    En general recomendamos la casa de Mario, es cómoda y céntrica.

  • Joli appartement, très calme. Sans doute dans l'un des quartiers les plus pittoresques de Lisbonne où les touristes ne vont pas.
    à 2 pas du métro, et à 5-10mn à pieds de Baixa, Chiado.

About
Hola soy Mario, artista, creativo y gestor cultural. Después de tener un espacio de arte y varios festivales en Madrid me vine a Lisboa por que adoraba la magia de esta ciudad, su luz, su color, su gente. Esa decadencia, esa tranquilidad, esa mezcla de étnias, de comidas, músicas, olores. Necesitaba buen tiempo y tener el mar cerca. Quizás Lisboa es esa vieja poesía que tanto gustamos recordar, esa SAUDADE, como ellos dicen. La casa que comparto con vosotros es una casa hecha con amor, con años de recopilar cosas bonitas en viajes por el mundo. Así como hecha a mano, muchos de los muebles de diseño en los que os sentaréis o comeréis están hecho por amigos o por un servidor. Intento cuidar los detalles, y como adoro el arte, hay obras en las paredes, no sólo láminas. Espero que estéis en ella como si fuera vuestra. Cuidarla y os cuidará. Para cualquiér duda o sugerencia, no dudéis en escribirme. Gracias y buena estancia. +++++++++ Hello I´m Mario, artist, creative and cultural manager.

This decadence, this calm, this mixture of etnics, foods, musics, smells. I need good weather and the sea near. Lisbon is a all poetry, is this SAUDADE, like they said. The house that I would share with you, is make with love. With years of buying the most beautiful things all around the world. And hand made, many furniture are made by friends or also me. And in the wall there are autentic art, not only copies. I hope that you feel like you are in your house. Take care, and she that care of you. Any question or sugestion please write me. Thank and good hollydays.
