Very nice apartment ! We were during New Years holiday there and had almost the whole apartment for us. Only a few minutes to Metro Station, supermarket, shops and a very cozy and good bakery. Marta and Luis are very friendly, helpful, gave us some insider tips. Everything went smooth and uncomplicated .. in the last night we had a short but very worthy time chatting with Luis. Thanks also for the port wine invitation Luis..
Marta and Luis were wonderful hosts despite juggling busy schedules and a sick child and they found the time to give great advice on finding my way around the neighbourhood. The apartment is brilliantly located away from the tourist madness in Lisbon and literally across the road from the Roma Areeiro train station which connects to the main Lisboa Oriente station for trains going north. The Sintra train also passes through. The Roma met station is just up the road. The circa 1950's apartment is big, light and airy and simply furnished with the fascinating addition of Marta's artwork and the publications of her arts organisation. It has a really nice calm atmosphere, super fast wifi and I loved the soundtrack of trains coming and going outside. Thank you Marta and Luis and I very much look forward to staying with you again!
We stayed more than 2 weeks at Marta's appartement and really liked it. The flat is very spacious and bright, clean enough and has all the kitchen equipment you need for basic meals. Although we didn't get any advice regarding activities/shops nearby/metro, there was a good variety of maps and brochures provided about Lisbon in different languages, which helped.
The place lies a bit further out from the city centre, quite close from the airport if you go by taxi (beware - the metro takes ways longer!) and you walk about 7 minutes to the next metro station. The flat lies between a train station and a school what makes it a little noisy, but not too bad. Also: don't attempt to find any nearby diner/takeway that is open after 24/1h.
I stayed in Marta's apartment with my friend for a whole week and we enjoyed our staying there, very relax. There is kitchen and living room and dining table for use as well, very convenient. In addition, Marta was very patient with us as we had couples if changes in the last moment and she was really kind to help us to arrange taxi as well!
Our visit to Lisboa was a real pleasure. We did not spent much time in our accommodation, but everything there was great. The rooms have been clean and we enjoyed to have not only one room, but the whole apartment to use. The sleeping room has a window to the back side gardens, so nobody can look into the window from the outside. There wasn´t much traffic in the office, so most of the time we had the apartment for our own. Of course you cannot expect 5-star luxury for the price and the apartment looks nicer from the inside than the house itself looks like from the outside. However, the accommodation is quite price worthy. Moreover it is directly in front of a train station (but as the sleeping room is in the back of the house, you do not hear the Trains anyway) and only a view steps walking to the next Metro station.
Finally, I can say that Marta is a quite friendly, helpful and reliable person. Her response times have been excellent and we really enjoyed our stay.
Nossa estadia no seu apartamento foi muito agradável. O apartamento está muito bem localizado, embora nao esteja no centro histórico, fica numa zona muito calma e perto dos transporte públicos.
L'appartement est très agréable. Marta a été très sympathique, nous a donné toutes les explications nécessaires et prêter de la crème solaire en voyant nos mines tout rougies par le soleil du printemps. Nous avons été très tranquilles dans la maison.
L'appartement est propre, et bien situé à proximité du métro Roma même si c'est un peu éloigné du centre ville.
Amazing!! I love the place and location is really good! We rented a car and they gave us a parking space! Totally recommended!!! :D
El departamento es lindisimo, amplio y muy cómodo. Me encanto quedarme allí y Marta , aunque nunca la vi personalmente fue muy amable. Muy recomendable!
I agree with the other comments - a lovely flat in a convenient location. Great to have the space. Some mornings we just stayed in the flat. The office (one room of the flat) was only used briefly on a couple of occasions. Wireless internet was very useful. 15 minutes Metro ride to Rossio. Plenty of shops and friendly cafes around.
Marta and Luis were very welcoming and helpful.
Marta is a truly lovely guest and any host would be happy to have her stay. I very much hope she stays with me again!
I have known Marta for a long time as a colleague and friend. I have stayed at her place in Lisbon a number of times and I can honestly say that she has made each trip extremely enjoyable. Marta is one of the most hospitable, friendly and reliable people I know and she will go out of her way to make you comfortable and help you find the best spots to visit in Lisbon.
