Very nice flat and Arlete was a very pleasant and helpful host. Flat is completely as described. Parking for free in front of the house. Portable Wireless Internet which is very useful for trips around Lisbon.
The appartment was exactly as described, very comfortable and cosy with more space than we expected. Arlete was an excellent host, she was there waiting our arrival and provided all information we needed, she was very generous with a welcoming bottle of wine and a few other extras which was very much appreciated. Arlete offerred to show us around the neighbourhood and recommended places to go.
The location has very good access to buses to explore Lisbon, less than 5 minute walk from the appartment. Train station for travel to Sintra was also convenient, a 10 to 15 minute walk.
We had a problem with the internet which Arlete spent time on the Saturday to try to resolve which was very much appreciated.
Would stay there again and would recommend.
Arlete is very wonderful, helpful person. Her space is very welcoming and clean. We really enjoyed the small cafe's and fresh markets in the neighbourhood. Also lots of places to visit in walking distance or a small taxi ride.
The area is quiet and popular.
It isn't close to from the center town but there are many buses to go there at any time.
We took the keys from Arlete's aunt, who is very sweet and polite.
In the kitchen we found a present from Arlete: a wine bottle and some portuguese cakes.
A very nice detail.
The only problem for us was the internet connection (not so fast), but we managed.
All the rest was perfect.
So, we recommend it.
When my previous booking fell through I had a day to find an apartment for my coworker coming in from China! Arlete took a chance on me when I sent her a message from Amsterdam about a Chinese guy that needed an apartment in Lisboa.
As it turned out Arlete is a wonderfully cheerful and helpful woman who put my mind at ease and provided a beautiful place to stay for my co-worker. I would heartily recommend this amazing apartment to anyone and I will definitely come check it out next time I'm in Lisbon!
This was a really lovely apartment. It is much prettier and spacious than in it seems in the pictures. It had so many great amenities, so there was nothing to worry about, leaving us with plenty of time to relax and enjoy Lisbon! We really felt "at home." We spent a month here and it was a great experience. Arlete was always helpful and accessible to answer any questions or resolve any issues. The metro is also a short trek away, and can get you to all major points in the city. It was a wonderful experience overall!
Arlete's place is a wonderful place to stay at when taking in Lisbon. We were able to park our car out the front no worries and then take the 758 bus into the city center as we felt (only the bravest tourist would drive)... about a 20 minute trip I'd guess.
Arlete's apartment is very clean and provides all the facilities a guest would need. Highly recommended!
Response from Arlete:
Being so used to the Portuguese summer, I'd never thought of that, but it's a great suggestion. Thank you! Best regards, A.
This was the perfect home for my fiance and me. The apartment is super clean, very modern yet very close to its culture, peaceful and very close to major transportation. We were welcomed by a small chalkboard, which said 'welcome home'. We got the feeling we were home right away. Arlete is a terrific host. Her instructions and guidelines were spot on. A must stay for anyone who wants to feel home away from home. If we ever go back to Lisbon, we would definitely go back.
Response from Arlete:
