We were a family of 3 staying at Joao's place for a week in March. The apartment is centrally located so there's no need to take the subway to go around the city (unless of course you want to reach more remote areas like Belem or the parque of Nações). The place itself is ideal for 3 (our daughter slept in the sofa bed in the living-room/kitchen) and fully equipped. Joao is a caring host so we recommend his apartment!
Joao's apartment is in a good location. It is close to all the major transportation systems in Lisbon. As described in the posting, it is clean & comfortable with everything one would need on vacation. The apartment is close to a major historical attraction which is within walking distance. There are many reasonably priced restaurants in the area if you need.
Joao is a very personable individual to work with. There was an issue with the apartment & he promptly came & resolved it. I would recommend his apartment to anyone who wants to enjoy the city of Lisbon from a central location.
O apartamento é muito bem localizado para quem quer passear pelos locais históricos de Lisboa, ao lado do castelo de São Jorge e da Alfama. O João nos recebeu muito bem, vale a pena para quem quiser visitar Portugal.
We stayed in Joao place for a week and it was an interesting experience for living a Portuguese home. The flat is located about 12-15 minute walk to downtown, to Sant Jorge castle and to the harbor and about 8 minute to metro station. However, tram number 12 and 28 are stopping almost by the flat.
The place was clean and home accommodations such as oven, washing machine, fridge and iron were in place. There are groceries very close to the place as well. Joao mentioned he will fix the internet connection as internet didn't work smoothly and two cannot use it at the same time.
This is a great apartment where was convenient living for three adults. It is very well located, I thought that any point of my route is within walking distance! In the old town! You go out on the balcony and you realize that this is LISBON! The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable life. Household appliances, internet, heaters, kitchen utensils, (website hidden)ão is very friendly and helpful! Always willing to help)
We had a great time in Portugal!
Thank you very much!
İts a very good location in old town. İts easy to go around. House is a little bit small comparing to the photos. İts not appropriate for three people but its okey for two persons. Beacuse the sofa in livingroom is not comfortable enough. House is clean and newly decorated but the entrance of the apartman smells weird. The equipment of the kithcen are not quality, especially pans. But there are good restaurants around.wifi keeps disconnect. Joao is a nice person, he answers the messages quickly. You can ask him anything.
Nice little flat near the Castello in a scenic neighbourhood.The tram 28 is just around the corner that goes through the whole city. Joao replied to every email within less than 30 minutes and was very courteous.
The flat is perfect for a couple but the couch isn't sutable for 2 more adults.(Children should be fine).
All in all a nice little get-away!
João's apartment is truly greatly located, it's literally 5 minutes walk up to the Castelo de São Jorge and 15-20 (depending on your pace) to almost any hood worth seeing in the city center, such as Chiado, Bairo Alto, Rossio (website hidden)ão has been a very punctual and friendly host, he waited for us at the apartment till late to hand over the keys and even left us some welcome treats. The apartment is located in the oldest neighborhood in the city and just walking around is very enjoyable, there're a lot of typical little eateries where you can get a real full Portuguese meal for only 6-7 euro (drinks and coffee or dessert included!!!) just around the corner. The place is perfect for a couple and there's definitely enough room for 3 or 4 people to stay. It's definitely a great value for money.
This flat is really very well situated in Lisbon, you can reach every spot very easily by taking the tram which is very close by, really very very practical. Joao is very friendly and we felt really welcome.
Just notice that the sofa bed is not comfortable for 2 adults, it was actually broken but joao has told us about it. And there is a weird smell when taking the stairs to go up to the flat.
Otherwise i advise you to try the artisanal ice creams at the shop right next to the appartment, this is the most delicious i have ever tried =).
From the first Contact on Joao was very friendly and nice and we felt very welcome when we arrived to Lisbon. The apartement is very good situated, you can find shops and coffees all around. To Graca, the Castelo and the Alfama its just a small walk and even to the centre its not far. The rooms are all clean and the apartment has everything you need for your stay. We enjoyed our stay very much and hope we come back :) Thank you Joao!
