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!
Fantastic host & fantastic apartment. Pedro was welcoming, very helpful and a very nice guy. He took the time to tell us Lisbon's secrets and it made the perfect start to the trip. The apartment was incredible, well equipped, and of course the terrace and view over Lisbon was breathtaking. It was clean, central, quiet and I could quite easily have spent a few more days drinking cava on the terrace looking over the city. We'll be back for sure.
The reservation was canceled 110 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
A great place to stay in lisbon with fantastic views of rooftops and the bridge... Great sunset and sunrise scenes. The 5th floor with no lift could be a challenge if you are traveling heavy (we were) but otherwise a most pleasant stay and a great welcome from Fernando
