Good choice for young couples

  • 4 of 5

We rented this unit for a 4 night stay without really knowing anything about the area. At first, we were less than crazy about having to wait over an hour for a representative to show with the keys--particularly after having to climb a very steep road (with luggage) and also 3 floors with just as steep stairs flights. Also, keep in mind the closest public parking lot is at least 15 minutes walking and those parking lots get full very quickly--not much fun if you are staying overnight and happen to arrive late when everyone is partying in the old city. Once we settled in everything changed for the good. The unit is well equipped with all the necessary appliances and furniture to make you feel at home. The view from the top floor is beautiful, it shows waht "old Lisbon"is all about, old facades and roof tops, we enjoyed the fact the very same steep street where the apartment sits is adjacent to one of the few elevator service tracks that still operate using those charming Lisbon trams, ...we were probably photographed by a thousand tourists who found our street view very charming. Be aware, nonetheless, this street happens to be a favorite place for locals and tourists to hang out and party after hours,..and they do love their drinks, evidence of this will be a street littered with empty beer cans next morning. Fortunately we did not hear any street noise level once inside the (AC equipped) unit. By the way, if you are visiting Lisbon in the middle of the summer, you definitely want to rent an unit with AC, the city can get very hot and the heat stays until the late hours (9PM). The service people that administer this unit (as well as 20 or so others), while very friendly and serviceable, tend to get very busy, so wait time to get anyone to assist you can take hours...The unit is right in the middle of all the action that takes place in the old Lisbon, there are plenty of restaurants and entertainment. Because of the steep climb and party atmosphere I recommend this apartment for young couples, not so much for the elderly. :)
