Why Glenn Cooper chose Lisbon Old Town
Ideally located in the heart of Principe Real, one of the most central and sought-after place of old Lisbon. Easy access to everything: restaurants, cafes, late-night bars, shops, and all the sites to visit. The street and the apartment complex are very quiet and peaceful. Perfect for a stay in Lisbon.

Very small apartment in a nice quiet neighborhood.
Overall it was fine if you were gone all day and just needed a really good bed to sleep.
Nice and quiet.
I wish I could give this 4+ stars in the rating. The apartment was as advertised- clean and comfortable. You will sleep well in this quiet space with a comfortable bed. It isn’t much bigger than a hotel room and the shower is small. As with all European apartments the stairs are treacherous. The apartment is in a good neighborhood and much better than other areas of the Bario Alto with the bars and eateries. Glenn was great to work with and helpful from booking to check out. We’d book here again. Lisboa is a joy! Bom viagem!
Absolutely to our liking
This has been our second visit to the Secret Garden 1. We absolutely love the apartment; well appointed, in a charming neighbourhood and with great hosts. Both visits we have felt that we were close enough to the action, but far enough away for a good night’s sleep.
Can’t say enough about the attentiveness of Glenn and Shana.
We will be back.
Great central location, and quiet!
Great neighborhood, everything one needs is nearby and quiet at night. Small but well laid out with good quality appointments, especially the mattress and shower. No trouble meeting up with Shana, who speaks enough English to explain the neighborhood. We would stay here again next time in Lisboa.
An Enchanting Garden
We were very, very pleased with our experience in the Secret Garden apartment. Glenn, Guillaume and Shana are exceptional hosts---attentive and responsive, yet unobtrusive. It was easy to arrange a booking, payment and communication with Glenn. The apartment was well maintained, very clean and had lovely decorative touches. The bed was comfortable, large and well-lit for reading. There was plenty of storage space in the bedroom closet. We really enjoyed the shower---plenty of warm water and pressure, a most adjustable shower head and sprayer, and quite spacious. The bathroom was small, but was clean and functional. The terrace attached to the bedroom was charming and had plenty of clothesline for hanging stuff. The Internet connection was fast and efficient. The guidebook was very interesting and helpful. The kitchen, though small, was well supplied with dishware, cutlery and utensils. The fridge was spacious. The entire apartment has very modern windows, which open, close and lock nicely. We really enjoyed listening to the sounds of the charming small street outside our kitchen window. The laundry facility was conveniently located around the corner---it had both washing machines and dryers (which were most appreciated) as were the bathroom and comfortable couch in the waiting area. There are so many great places to eat within short walking distance of the apartment that you wouldn’t need to wander far, unless you wished to. Lisbon itself is a gem of a city---friendly people, wonderful architecture, great public transportation, and a terrific range of shopping and dining. One very small thing we would have liked--- more substantial, fluffier pillows on our bed! When we return to Lisbon, which we unquestionably will, Glenn will be our “go-to-guy” for accommodation. Thanks so much!
This apartment was perfect for our needs. My wife and I stayed here for 21 days on our holiday in Lisbon and this apartment set the stage for our trip. The apartment is well equipped with everything we need for day to day living. A grocery store is within a 5 min walk and local transit is steps away. We really enjoyed our trip and would pick this apartment if and when we chose to come back to Lisbon.
My apartment complex is located in a small and peaceful street, in the heart of Principe Real, next to Praca das Flores. This is one of the most sought-after districts of old Lisbon.
