Great little apartment in the centre of things
Very convenient to the river, train stations, night market, old Lisbon areas, and tons of shopping and restaurants. Rather than go straight up the street go out the door and along the street to the funicular and down the steps, it makes it easier to go up and down that way. The funicular is only a few steps away to take you up the hill into the shopping area. Trams and buses outside. Electric bikes for hire and tuk tuks at the night market, which is a great place to eat, and also shop for meat, fish and veggies in the mornings. There is a small supermarket on the street below, and another in the train station area. A great modern open glass fronted breakfast place on the street below sells duck pies and seafood empanadas from 7am. There are a couple of small cafes right beside the funicular on the steps down which are good, one in particular serves a mean white sangria in a coupe glass which is excellent on a hot day.
The apartment is lovely, very modern with a/c and the windows open to let in fresh air too. Good bathroom with plenty of hot water, and equipped kitchen (although we didn't cook as we were on holiday). Nespresso coffee machine which you can buy pods for at the supermarket. The bed was a little hard and I would have preferred real pillows but that is just personal choice. The outdoor table and chairs are shared with another apartment so is not private. The building is 3 apartments with an older Portuguese couple at the front who are really friendly. The other apartment opposite is a vacation rental and the people renting it while we were there were also very friendly. We met so many friendly people in Lisbon, chatting to others at communal tables, on the funicular, etc. Even a Portuguese couple who showed us how to crack open crab claws in a local restaurant....lol.
Big shout out to George, who we organised a return airport transfer through. Plus Pedro, who made the booking so easy, and was so helpful responding to my emails with info about our stay.
We enjoyed our stay in Lisbon immensley and would definitely recommend this little apartment as a base for a holiday.
We would also recommend taking an electric bike tour around the city, visiting Sintra, and taking a kayak tour on the coast, plus renting electric bikes to go to Belem for natas.
Me ha gustado mucho. Sobre todo por su ubicación
Confortable y muy bien equipada.
Thank you so much for your review!
