Good location

  • 3 of 5

Small apartment as advertised but no windows, only a front door . A bit damp and the bathroom was mouldy. Typical old street in Alafama with mostly locals as neighbours which we loved. Good little cafe a few doors away and shopping and tram 28 all within a short walk.

Alfama: Low Cost in Old Town!

  • 1 of 5

The kitchen was lovely and well stocked. The bathroom was small, but usable. The problem was with the smell of the unit, towels and linens. They smelled like a dirty wet dog. The bed was a bit rumpled when we got there, but we thought it was because it was in a hard spot to make tidy. However, the morning we left we pulled the bedding up and found a ladies hair clip in the bed! Yuck! I don't think they changed the sheets! Also, it is very difficult to find. They offer a personal pick up from the airport, but at three times the cost of a taxi ride....even the taxi driver could not read the directions in his own language. They requested an added 25 Euro fee to check in on Sunday but crossed it off when I challenged the extra charge. We weren't impressed for the cost.

Owner's Response: Dear guest, Your review was really disturbing for us. We are sorry that you felt uncomfortable.During your stay did you report anything to us about the bedding? Maybe we could had the chance to correct that situation. We don't believe our maid did not change the sheets, it is the first time we hear that the sheets weren't changed, but our operation department is already in charge of the situation to verify what happen. The pick up from the airport is completely optional. We work with a external transfer partner that is reliable and we deeply trust their work and their prices, that's why we continue to work with them and propose this service to our clients, but once more, its completely optional. Maybe you were lucky with your taxi driver, but sometimes they charge you even more than our transfer partner. About the weekend fee, all this information is really explicit on the VRBO website, at the apartment's page. Not charging it was a commercial gesture, not a matter of being challenged. We are really sorry about your disappointment, we will take action so this kind of reviews don't happen again. Even so, we hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in Lisbon and provide you with a better experience. Best regards, Lúcia Alves - TravelingToLisbon Team

Not impressed!

  • 1 of 5

This little apartment was below standards considering the cost. The kitchenette was nice and well stocked and the bathroom was small but useable. Our issue was the smell! The bed linens And bath towels smelled like a stale dirty dog! The bed was sloppy but we thought it was because it is in a small space and hard to make. But The morning we checked out we found a girls hair clip in the sheets! Yuck!! Also, they were going to charge an extra 25 euros to check in on Sunday, but crossed it out when we challenged it. The location is difficult to find and they offer airport transport for three times the cost of a regular taxi ride! Not impressed.

Bien situé

  • 3 of 5

En plein cœur du quartier de l'Alfama, assez difficile a trouver car situé dans un des multiples rues piétonnes, cette appartement a un certain charme. Il est bien équipé tout en long pour 2 adultes et un enfant c'est bien, avec une seule ouverture de la porte d'entrée. Quelque odeur d'humidité (difficulté à aérer) mais pour moi rien de trop gênant... Cuisine fonctionnelle, table pour 3/4 assez petite, salle de bain assez réduite mais fonctionnelle. Bon c'est pas le Pérou, mais on est très vite sur la ligne 28 du tram ou à quelques centaine de mètres (en pente) du centre bas et c'est je trouve fort appréciable. Pas loin non plus du château Saint Georges. Quelques bars a proximité directe pour le petit déjeuné. Bonne accueil le premier jour et départ simplifié.
