My stay in Lisbon was very pleasant as we arrived at night and the father of Helena was waiting for us to checkin and show the apartment.
The apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos, as a sort of well structured attic, perhaps with a sharp clarity, especially on waking in the morning.
Before arriving, Helena had sent a very good guide as a PDF file which has helped me as a tourist, and so I took printed to help me.
The area is great and is all that really needs to close. Of course there is a small ramp to get in the building and also 4 flights of stairs to climb to the apartment, however, warns Helena that here on the site to reach this flat is in this way, and it does not alter the welfare and comfort and practicality from tasty apartment. The bed is underneath the roof slope and has a comfortable sofa bed which was very useful to us, a bathroom and to our great satisfaction and a fully equipped kitchen and practice, including a washing machine.
I recommend, since the person already prepared for this reality check, by the way, is very worthwhile also for the good price offered.
Thank you Mr. Orlando, thank you Helen, good luck! If thinking about visiting Brazil in search.
A minha estadia em Lisboa foi muito agradável, pois chegamos à noite e o pai da Helena estava nos aguardando para o checkin e mostrar como funcionava o apartamento.
O apartamento é exatamente como o que aparece nas fotos, por ser uma espécie de sótão bem estruturado, talvez com uma claridade muito acentuada, principalmente ao acordar na parte da manhã.
Antes de chegar, Helena havia mandado um guia muito bom em arquivo PDF que muito me ajudou como turista, e o mesmo eu levei impresso para me ajudar.
A região é ótima e se encontra tudo que realmente precisa por perto. É claro que existe uma pequena rampa de acesso para se chegar no prédio e também 4 andares de escada para se subir até o apartamento, contudo, Helena avisa aqui no site que para chegar a esse apartamento é desta forma, e isso não altera nada o bem estar e conforto e praticidade desde gostoso apartamento. A cama fica embaixo da inclinação do telhado e possui um confortável sofá-cama que muito nos foi útil, um banheiro bem ao nosso contento e uma ótima cozinha toda equipada e prática, inclusive com máquina de lavar (website hidden) recomendo, desde que a pessoa já vá preparada para esta realidade, que por sinal, vale muito a pena também pelo bom preço proposto.
Obrigado Sr. Orlando, obrigado Helena, boa sorte! Caso pensem em visitar o Brasil, nos procure.
Helena was really helpful from the start. Her flat is in a central location and just perfect for a stay in Lisbon. We did get ripped off by the taxi man from the airport so prob best to ask the price before you start as he charged us €35 when it should have been €10 from what we gathered. The metro is really easy and cheap though so as long as you get good directions to the apartment, do this. It could be tricky to find without a map until you know the area. The actual apartment is clean, modern and light. It's also fully equipped with everything you need to cook, even extras that previous guests have left like herbs and spices, pasta and margarine. Always nice to see that the hosts don't strip everything out each time. Loved lisbon and the old town. Fully recommend the flat and the city.
We spent 5 nights in the apartment and I highly recommended that it's the best choice I made.
Our flight to Lisbon is around 9 pm and when Helena's father Orlando also wait for us to check in. At the same time, he did a lot of recommendation about the sight-seeing places and food and we enjoy them very much.
The room is clean and big and it contains all facilities you need. Location is great and you can go to all popular spots within 10-15 mins walking distance and less than 5 mins walk to subway.
Will definitely stay in this apartment again when travelling to Lisbon next time.
We enjoyed a pleasant stay at Helena's apartment. Everything was as described or better. The only exception was that the presence (email hidden) nearby produced some noise (particularly from a boisterous regular). But since we have a baby and tried to adjust to his schedule we went to bed early. Noise dies around 11pm so should not disturb ordinary guests at this wonderful apartment.
Before arrival, Helena provided us with a very useful file to get our bearings in Lisbon and she was altogether a great host. Highly recommended.
We stayed at Helena's "Lovely Loft" for a whole week during last April. Over all that was really nice experience - the apartment is exquisitely well-equipped, very clean and functional; the flat's location is central and pretty convinient. Helena is responsible, kind and responsive host - hot water pressure issue was resolved the very next morning after we complained, all our questions and enquiries were always answered promptly.
Although there are a few nuances about this accommodation:
1. High floor with many-many narrow steps to climb - was not a problem for us, but should be taken into consideration if you are not in good shape :)
2. The sloping beams of the ceiling are pretty low in some places - watch your head!
3. Literally door to door with entrance to appartment's stairwell is located some little snack bar, which is extremely popular place of hanging out for local guys (and girls).
So every night some of these "revelers" were crowding around restaurant's porch, producing fair amount of noice (not horrible, but notable even on our 4th floor ) right until late after-midnight hours.
My boyfriend and I stayed in this loft for 3 days in April. It's a beautiful, newly decorated and very clean flat. It was fully equipped and it had everything we could possibly need. Shame we were not staying longer! We felt very comfortable and at home. We were greeted and given keys by Helena's lovely mum. Before we arrived, we had also been emailed a booklet with very useful information. The flat is in the centre of Lisbon, close to shops, metro, buses, trams. We would definitely go back!
Helena is an incredible host and her flat is absolutely perfect and in Lisbon's best neighborhood. Prior to our trip Helena sent over a plethora of wonderful information regarding local restaurants, snack shops and nightlife spots and also had great communication planning our arrival. Our 5 day stay in Lisbon was truly lovely and Helena's flat was the perfect accommodation for us. Can't wait to go back!
Apto muy acogedor y bien ubicado
Très bel appartement refait à neuf situé au 4 ème étage, cuisine équipée, bel déco, très bien situé proche de la station de métro Avenida.
Le bar en bas de la rue apporte son lot d'animation et il ne faudra pas oublier d'apporter de quoi s'isoler !
L'accueil est impeccable et courtois, l’hôte est très arrangeant.
Enjoyed our stay.
Lovely family. Good communication. Left the place spotless. Highly recommend.
