The interior of the flat is very nice, the patio is very useful when it is hot and sunny and the two rooms with the attached bathrooms are ideal for two couples.
And the district is pleasant.
We liked it very much. Read more
Thank you so much for your review of our apartment 243 in Principe Real. We are very happy that we have this apartment in our porfolio. Principe Real is a great district to be in when in Lisbon, with its garden, beautiful houses trendy cafés and popular restaurants and the apartment fits in beautifully with its surrounding, as cool as the neighborhood. Glad you appreciated it.
Chez soi, à Lisbonne.

Appartement pratique. Pour deux couple c'est l'idéal. Les deux chambres sont aux deux opposés du logement, et les aires communes sont au centre; salon, cuisine, salle à dîner. La terrasse est chouette pour les petits déjeuners. Très apprécié d'avoir une laveuse à linge, lorsqu'on arrive d'une semaine de voyage (comme c'était le cas pour deux d'entre nous), il est très bien de pouvoir faire une petite machine!...
Il est certain que nous avons été chanceux de ne pas avoir des grosses chaleurs (nous y étions du 9 au 13 juillet 2013 pour 5 nuits) car pas de climatisation, cela aurait pu être étouffant. Lorsqu'on arrivait en fin de journée, on ouvrait bien les portes et fenêtres partout pour aérer, et en 30 minutes la température ambiante des pièces était correcte; mais les nuits étaient fraîches ce qui aidait beaucoup...
L'emplacement de cet appartement est franchement bien choisi. On a beaucoup marché (on pouvait en 10 ou 15 minutes arriver dans le centre du Barrio alto, et même de l'Alfama avec un autre 10 ou 15 minutes supplémentaires...), on était près du centre ou de la station de métro et des autobus facilement.
Bref, nous avons apprécié énormément.

Charming apartment and ideal location

We loved our visit to Lisbon and the charming apartment on Principe Real. We were greeted by a representative and we were given a terrific briefing. The apartment is well equipped and because of the split 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom layout it was ideal for us (a couple travelling with our 20 year old daughter). The location is ideal for exploring this wonderful city. Public transit was easy to manage and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance. Read more
Thanks for this fabulous and informative review, I'm sure this will help future guests and travelers greatly.
We are thrilled that you enjoyed your time in the apartment, it's location and check in service.
Hope to welcome you back again in Lisbon.

Amazing apartment in a great location!

This apartment was great and came with recommendations of local surroundings - all of which we tried and were delighted with!
It is also within walking distance to many of the tourist sites and the nightlife in Bairro alto but at the same time away from the noise if you're not into the party life that Lisbon is renowned for!
The apartment itself has two bedrooms at opposite ends of the apartment, one with an ensuite the other with the main bathroom next to it. And there are real double beds(not two single beds pushed together!)which are super comfortable.
It also has everything else you need for an enjoyable and relaxing stay (i.e. fully equipped). :)
I would highly recommend staying at this apartment and we also received a very warm welcome upon arrival. Read more
