“Friendly host and worthy of 5 star review!”
Reviewed 3 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I had already spent a week in Ericeira in a villa but wanted to spend some time in Lisbon seeing as it was the first time I had visited Portugal. I had booked this apartment quite a while ago, but Rita & Miguel would reply to any queries leading up to my visit speedily and were very helpful.

We arrived in Lisbon earlier than expected but Rita greeted us and allowed us to leave our suitcases in the room while it was cleaned. We ended up being 'upgraded' the their second property (on the second floor) and it was brilliant. The property has been kept in excellent condition and, although it may seem like it is in a "dodgy" area it was not the case at all - simply in the older area of Lisbon and walk 100m down the road you will find Gucci/Michael Kors (not that I was shopping there but was right in the centre of Lisbon so was perfect).

The apartment was spacious and all amenities were thought of, even a GIGANTIC book of suggestions of where to eat and where to go during our stay. We really felt like everything was thought of and were very impressed by the whole stay.

If I went back to Lisbon I would definitely consider this apartment over any hotel etc. and I have been raving about the apartment since being home!

Thank you Rita & Miguel for making the stay in Lisbon a great way to end our holiday.

Liked best: Location was important, but the little things like the guide book - and the aircon was VERY nice too!
Liked least: The stairs to get up were pretty steep - couldn't be helped and definitely wouldn't deter me from visiting again

“Excellent flat, great location, just be aware of the stairs”

My husband and I stayed in this studio apartment for a week in September. As others have said, it is very small and compact, although the owners have taken care to maximise the potential of every available inch. As such, the only area which does actually feel a little too cramped is the kitchen, as the workspace is at a premium - difficult to make food if you are draining dishes at the same time, but of course this is not a problem if you usually eat out and just use the kitchen for snacks and drinks. Perhaps surprisingly in such a small area the bed is kingsize but it is very comfortable to sleep on - definetly a big plus, and the extra width still leaves enough room on either side of the bed to move around. The settee was a bit low for us so we tended to sit\lie on the bed instead. The television reception was very good and there was a really good selection of English channels to choose from. Wifi was excellent the whole time. Everything is bright, airy and modern and very clean indeed. Two large bath and two hand towels were provided, all nice and soft. There was also one tea towel, although to be honest we could really have done with a second. The location of the apartment can't be faulted, being just one street off the main thoroughfare of Lisbon and close to attractions and public transport - as Rita advised, we chose to buy daily transport cards for 6 euros each rather than invest in a Lisbon card, which only really makes sense if you intend visiting a lot of musuems. Being in the centre means of course that the road outside is really very noisy with the windows open, fortunately the windows and shutters were excellent at minimising this noise and we we found we could keep them closed at night if we left the air conditioning on. We found the local businesses to be priced very reasonably and the owners friendly, although with varying degrees of spoken English. The only real negative about the flat, which of course the owners can't do anything about, is the narrow, steep wooden staircase (11 steps) to reach it. Whilst we got used to this over the course of the week, it was very difficult to get two heavy suitcases up them at the start and again back down at the end. As such, whilst we would generally heartily recommend the studio, we wouldn't do so for anyone with a mobility problem.

I have never meet with such a perfect hospitality! We got gifts (wine,cd), guidelines about the city,foods, attractions. The room is compact, clean, nice, equiped from ikea. The bed is perfect to sleep. Wifi was working also perfectly.

“Little masterpiece in the center of Lisbon”
Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

The apartment is a real masterpiece in the center of Lisbon! It has not just everything you need - everything you could think of! - and it's amazing how it all fits into a small studio. It is also very beautiful, modern and stylish - Rita you truly are a designer!
The location is perfect - it's just a couple of minutes from the Avenida station and also lots of attractions, resturants and stores are at walking distance.
Rita and Miguel are wonderful hosts, they answered very quickly, sent the directions, offered us to order a taxi to the airport and any other help we needed. Rita gave us a hearty welcome and treated us to some local liquor which tasted great. She also prepared a personal greeting letter for us which was very touching!
There is also a handmade guide book in the apartment so if you haven't prepared a list of sights to see don't worry, it's all there!
All in all - this place is perfect, I'd love to come back again!
