Lisbon has been the capital of Portugal since the 12th century. It has a long history that can be experienced in the old neighborhoods, which may be visited by foot or tram. The Atlantic climate offers wonderful conditions to travel all year round. The main feature of Pena is that it is a plateau, from which two main slopes descend, facing Martin Moniz and Avenida da Liberdade. It begins at the north-east of Rossio and extends to Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, commonly known by Campo de Santana. The streets on the two slopes are twisting and irregular, leading to many beautiful alleys and side streets.
Being one of the oldest districts in Lisbon, one is overwhelmed by the diversity of its buildings, constructed in accordance with the successive types of architecture through centuries. Wrought iron balconies from the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries can be seen everywhere. In constant dialogue with the wrought iron are the glazed tiles of the façades - a style reportedly brought from Brazil after the 16th century.
It is very close to the famous Bairro Alto, a nightlife area, which can be reached after walking down Rossio or by taking the Elevador do Lavra, the oldest funicular in Lisbon. This 120 year old elevator goes every 15 minutes down to Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, the location of many excellent fish restaurants as recommended by many city guides.

Very nice apartment in a prime location! Have stayed there with 4 people. Everything was available: towels, linens, hair dryer, coffee maker, kettle ... even spices. A supermarket and a very good restaurant is right next door. What more do you want?
Sehr schönes Apartment in bester Lage! Haben dort mit 4 Personen übernachtet. Alles war vorhanden: Handtücher, Bettwäsche, Fön, Kaffeezubereiter, Wasserkocher... sogar Gewürze. Ein Supermarkt und ein sehr gutes Restaurant sind direkt nebenan. Was will man mehr?
We hebben ons heerlijk vermaakt door lopend de kronkelige straatjes, steegjes en trappen van Alfama te verkennen.Met op ieder hoekje een terrasje of restaurantje die we, vanwege de uitzonderlijk hoge temperaturen van + 30 graden, regelmatig bezocht hebben, was de ligging van het appartement aan de Beco de Bugio ideaal. Als je niet lopend dit gedeelte van Lissabon wilt ontdekken kun je er ook voor kiezen gebruik te maken van het bekende gele trammetje 28. De ontvangst in het appartement was vriendelijk en hulpvaardig. De bedden waren van goede kwaliteit en er was voldoende plek voor 4 personen. Het enige nadeel in dit appartement is de toegang via de slaapkamer naar de badkamer. Lissabon heeft ons aangenaam verrast en we komen er zeker nog een keer terug.
Large apartment. Ample living space. The outside looks like a balcony and is not very big. The outdoor area is surrounded by white walls. These white walls provide a bright apartment.
Apartment located on the edge of downtown so everything is easily accessible. Perfect apartment for a city visit.
Groot appartement. Voldoende leefruimte. De buitenruimte lijkt op een balkon en is niet erg groot. De buitenruimte wordt omgeven door witte muren. Deze witte muren zorgen voor een licht appartement.
Appartement ligt aan de rand van het centrum zodat alles gemakkelijk bereikbaar is. Prima appartement voor een stadsbezoek.
We were very pleased with our accommodation in Lisbon. The apartment has all the facilities, is clean and neatly furnished. The location is really good, the connection through the bus 712 to the public transport optimally. The balcony invites you to breakfast and evening Sundowner.
Our host was extremely friendly and helpful, we would not hesitate to re-book this apartment.
Wir waren mit unserer Unterkunft in Lissabon sehr zufrieden. Die Wohnung bietet alle Möglichkeiten, ist sauber und ordentlich eingerichtet. Die Lage ist wirklich gut, die Anbindung durch den Bus 712 an den öffentlichen Nahverkehr optimal. Der Balkon lädt zum Frühstück und abendlichen Sundowner ein.
Unser Gastgeber war außerordentlich freundlich und hilfsbereit, wir würden jederzeit wieder diese Wohnung buchen.
The location of the apartment in Alfama, close to the Se cathedral and city center is perfect. All Lisbon regions (Alfama,Baixa, Bairro alto and Chiado) are at walking distance. In case you want to go there by public transportation you'll find tram (28E and others) and bus stop just around the corner and the metro station Terreira do Paco is at a 5 minutes walk. There's a supermarket "Pingo Doce" at approx. 10 minutes walking distance.
The sober decorated apartment has a kitchen, 2 small bedrooms, a very small living room and a bathroom.
We had to clean part of the kitchen and do the dishes before use.The kitchen gear is very basic and partly incomplete. When we arrived we found only 3 glasses (this was resolved after a call to the host). There's no electric coffee machine. Besides a dustpan with a short broom, there are no other (floor) cleaning tools like a vacuum cleaner, normal sized broom etc. So it's hard to keep it clean when you're there for more than 2 days.
The double bed in one of the bedrooms measures only 184 x 128, which is not a normal double sized bed and doesn't fit taller people. This should be mentioned on the website.
The absence of a shelf with bed light at one side of the bed in both rooms, which were there in the past according to the holes in the wall (and pictures on the website) indicate a lack of maintenance as did the broken dustbin, not functioning lock on the bathroom door, no light in the refrigerator etc.
I would not recommend this apartment for more than 4 persons.
Overall, we did enjoyed our stay and the host was very friendly, but based on the reviews, I got a slightly different impression of the apartment. With this review I want to compensate for that. I think it's quite easy to make it a more attractive apartment with only minor investments. Please do.
We got to Lisbon after staying in Porto for a few days.
We had a great time despite the terrible weather but we won't be back soon.
Filipe met us at the apartment and showed us around. He told us where we could find a super market and a few grocery stores, then he recommended a nice bar to hang out in the evening, which we enjoyed alot and won't give away it's name online. It's an amazing bar and until now free of drooling drunk tourists unlike so many other places.. lol
He didn't want to go through "the map" and give tons of recommendations and instead offered to be "available" around the clock for us to write/call him if we were interested in a place and wouldn't know if and how we should go there.
We were fine with that and he answered on our first request pretty quickly, not so much when we contacted him on the second day (for a restaurant-recommendation) and didn't receive any answer for the rest of our stay in Lisbon.. In that case, we'd prefer a map with some marks of recommendations instead of empty words.
The apartment's location is absolutely perfect, few minutes of walking to Bairro Alto (bars and restaurants, nightlife-hotspot) and still pretty calm at night. The apartment looks great at first glance, lots of space and great ambiance.
We only gave 4 stars, because it was dirty!
We had to clean some of the kitchen before we found it save to use any of it and also had to do the dishes before using them - however, we didn't clean out the cupboards which would've taken forever and definitely needs to be done asap.
The floor was sticky so that we couldn't bare walking around in socks (only bringing in more dirt I guess) and the bedsheets had some ugly stains on them.
The bathroom was okay, but the toilet paper sits on the floor and the toilet brush is standing in a deep puddle of god-knows-how-old toilet water (I didn't dare to clean that one!).
The shower head is leaky and spills water all around and it's holder sits loosely on the wall..
this might not be much reason to criticize for many as I know lots of people who live in such "conditions" and seem perfectly fine with that.
For me it's just unacceptable to not get a place cleaned up before offering it to someone.
A part la porte d'entrée qui est un non-sens d'isolation phonique, thermique et sécuritaire, vous donnant l'impression que chaque entrant dans l'immeuble pénètre également dans votre studio (surtout à 2h du matin),le charme "Ikea de bon goût" et la situation de cet appart sont très appréciables. De petits détails pratiques sont à disposer comme des porte-savons dans la salle de bain, un balai ou encore l'entretien des plaques de cuisson avec un produit adapté.
Apartment suitable for 5 persons, good location (but steep descent), a lot of small / very low cost / easy / good quality restaurants nearby, as a small supermarket. Apartment was well equipped, with coffee maker and teapot facilities could be improved. Key handover went smoothly, friendly welcome with some tips to Lisbon. Small drawback: Not all rooms were cleaned perfectly. But overall: Highly recommended!
Wohnung gut geeignet für 5 Personen, gute Lage (allerdings steiler Abstieg), viele kleine/sehr preiswerte/einfache/qualitativ gute Restaurants in unmittelbarer Nähe, ebenso kleiner Supermarkt. Wohnung war gut ausgestattet, durch Kaffemaschine und Teekanne könnte Ausstattung noch verbessert werden. Schlüsselübergabe klappte problemlos, freundlicher Empfang mit einigen Tipps zu Lissabon. Kleines Manko: Nicht alle Räume waren perfekt gereinigt. Doch insgesamt: Sehr empfehlenswert!
The accommodation was the perfect accommodation while staying in Lisbon for our family of 5. It is centrally located and yet very quiet. In a few minutes on foot to Rossio, the place with stops by Metro, various bus lines and the Aerobus. Just around the corner there is a small shop that sells everything for your daily needs. The apartment is well furnished and clean. We can recommend this apartment highly.
Die Unterkunft war für unsere 5-köpfige Familie die ideale Unterkunft während dem Aufenthalt in Lissabon. Sie ist zentral gelegen und dennoch sehr ruhig. In wenigen Minuten erreicht man zu fuss Rossio, den Platz mit Haltestellen von Metro, verschiedenen Busslinien und des Aerobus. Gleich um die Ecke gibt es einen kleinen Laden, der alles für den täglichen Bedarf verkauft. Die Wohnung ist gut eingerichtet und sauber. Wir können diese Wohnung sehr empfehlen.
