My husband and I started our honeymoon in Pedro's beautiful apartment in Lisbon. Pedro was an incredibly welcoming host - he not only gave us recommendations for local restaurants, but also walked us through the history of the city, key places to visit/neighborhoods, and even suggested places to stop on our drive to the Algarve a few days later. The apartment is even better than the pictures, especially the view, and the neighborhood ended up being our favorite part of the city, great restaurants, bars and boutiques. We would definitely stay here again!
Pedro was an outstanding host. The apartment is absolutely fantastic. It is just as it is shown in the pictures, but better and the views have to be appreciated in person. They are spectacular. The location is also perfect in a very nice part of town. I cannot recommend Lisbon or the apartment highly enough. Our original flight was cancelled due to a pilot's strike and Pedro went out of his way to help us to find alternatives and to use his contacts to keep us fully updated on the situation. This exceeded expectations. Pedro's friend, Francisco, welcomed us to the apartment and gave us a lot of information and recommendations for restaurants (focussing on seafood as we had mentioned that we loved this) which all turned out to be fantastic. This was much appreciated as there is so much choice in Lisbon that choosing a restaurant could be daunting. We would love to go back and truly feel like we stayed in the best apartment in Lisbon!
This place does not disappoint! Incredible apartment with top of the line everything. Beautiful views, great neighborhood and fast, reliable wifi. This was one of the best AirBnB's I've stayed in. Pedro was an amazing host with lots of recommendations and easily accessible if I needed to ask any questions. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.
This was our first experience using Airbnb and it has been extremely positive. Pedro's apartment was a delight to stay in and very true to the listing. The views were amazing and the apartment very well equipped. The local neighbourhood was peppered with interesting places, lots of lovely cafes and restaurants and well located so there was easy access to the rest of the city. The welcome was genuine and whole-hearted with personal touches adding to the experience. We would definitely recommend a stay here!
Merci Pedro et Francisco pour votre disponibilité et votre accueil ! Pedro a répondu à toutes nos questions même si la description du logement est déjà très complètes. Et Francisco nous a tellement bien accueilli : bouteille de vin et super conseils sur le quartier et la ville !
simple, chaleureux, accueillant, appart au top et superbe vue !
je recommande à 100%
bises à tous les 2
Pedro's top floor apartment is a real gem. The view from up there is great and the place has got a good feel to it. They layout of the apartment is convenient and the little balcony a real plus. Furthermore there was no noise from the streets whatsoever. Pedro's friend Francisco handed me the keys and all went as planned. Also he was so kind to indicate a bunch of restaurants which turned out to be really good. I looking forward to staying at this apartment again. Only people who have trouble climbing three flights of stairs should reconsider.
This apartment is even better than the photos! You just can't capture how amazing the view is in person. On our first day we didn't even want to leave the apartment because of how beautiful it was! It's the perfect place to stay in Lisbon. Close to shops and restaurants and all the nightlife in Bairro Alto. This is a truly special place, anyone would love to stay here!
