“Beautiful apartment and a wonderful place to stay!”
What a great apartment! Everything was exactly as advertised. Nicely remodeled and in a great location. Very close to the best view of Lisbon (Portas do Sol) and many interesting places. Excellent restaurants within a block, and just a few steps from the stop of the famous Trams 28 and 12. Felipa and Bruno were very nice, attentive, and helpful. The only way to enjoy our time in the apartment more, would have been to stay even longer than the 12 days we were there.
Response from the owner Thank you so much. I am glad you enjoyed. Filipa
“Amazing location and apartment”
Right from the start we were welcomed by someone who gave us a lot of helpful advice about the apartment and the city. What a relief after the journey! This apartment is located in alfama, one of the most vibrant neighbourhoods of Lisbon. You can see the shore of the river from the back window, there are lovely shops and restaurants everywhere, and downtown is 10 minutes walking, 15 if you walk slowly. I recommend this apartment highly! You can always get back by tram, but since I love walking I burned off all the great food I are by climbing back to alfama every night. The owner is also very helpful and friendly, anything you need or questions you may have she will respond to quickly.
Response from the owner Dear Aysha. Many thanks for the nice words. We strive for guests to have good experiences. We'll always have vacancy for you and for the remaining family members ;) best wishes!
“Lovely little flat in a great location.”
We had a wonderful stay in Lisbon and the quality of this apartment and the helpfulness of its owner, Filipa, was very much a part of that. It is located on the edge of Alfama, close to a beautiful viewpoint over the city and harbour. It is not in the centre of Alfama, which is a good thing, as it is a bit quieter, although if you are sensitive to noise it could be a problem, as Lisbon is a night city and there will always be some street noise in this area. Closing the window helps a great deal to mitigate this. The apartment is perfectly clean and well maintained, with everything you need for a nice stay provided, along with a welcoming bottle of wine and candies, which was a lovely touch. Filipa is delightful and a great source of info about the city and surroundings. We would certainly stay here again.
Response from the owner Thank you very much. It was a pleasure to meet you and hope to see you again! :) Best regards, Filipa
“Good, spacious apartment. Great situation, really convenient for”
The owners waited patiently for our late arrival and were really helpful, particularly in booking our early-morning taxi for the flight home. It's a very well renovated apartment with lots of space and everything provided. There are many miradors (viewing points) and little park areas near the apartment, which make up for the apartment not having its own balcony, but that's the only downside of a generous flat. There's a large, by Lisbon standards, supermarket about a mile away on Graca's main street.Don't forget to visit the Sao Vicente de Fora, just up the hill, which has an amazing collection of 38 tiled representations of the fables of La Fontaine from 18th century. On the same theme do go to the tile museum,Museo Nacional azalejo, a short bus-ride away.
Response from the owner Thanks Janet. It was very nice from you. We think you and Andy were the perfect guests. Wish you all the best.
“Where else can you stay in a 1000 year old neighborhood”
Our hosts Filipa and Bruno, a young Lisbon couple, were very attentive to our every needs. They are always a phone call or e-mail away and come in person to assist you with your needs and advice. The apartment was totally remodeled with new bathroom and kitchen., We loved the location because, almost at our front door, we were a short tram ride on 12 or 28 to downtown Lisbon. We loved the restaurant right next door with great Portuguese food, friendly service and very reasonably priced. This is a good location with wonderful views nearby, providing a wonderful sense of the "old" Portugal with modern amenities. We also discovered an elevator near the Castle that brings you to a modern supermarket an then to downtown Lisbon. Where else can you stay in a 1000 year old neighborhood!
Response from the owner Thank you very much. we are glad you enjoyed staying in our apartment. It was a pleasure. Regards, Filipa
Because we are from america, our first reaction to the address was whoa! Are we going to be safe? Alfima is very old but we learned,don't judge a book by it's cover. It's very safe and convenient. Trolley across the street takes you to the town square and access to many new sights and sounds. Bruno met us at the apartment and it was cute as could be and very modern and comfortable. Bruno spent over an hour with us, answering our questions. We would definately return!
Response from the owner Yes, the location is safe :) It was a pleasure to welcome you and we are glad we could help you with all informations you needed. Bruno
“Lovely, well-located apartment with a friendly, personal service”
Can only give positive feedback for the Experience Lisboa apartment. Before arrival Filipa and Bruno were very helpful over email, even detailing activities we might like to explore on our trip. On arrival we were met by Filipa and Bruno who gave us the keys and a quick once over of the apartment, which was clean, nicely furnished and well equipped with everything you might need in the kitchen (pots, pans, cutlery, kettle, toaster...) and living areas (Cable TV, Wireless internet stereo). The apartment is well located in the alfama district of Lisbon. The Castle is just a couple of minutes walk away as are a handful of cafés and restaurants with views overlooking the river. The centre of the city is just a short walk (15 min) down the hill or a few Euro in a cab (for the way back up the hill!) If you're looking to spend some time in Lisbon I'd say you'll be hard-pressed to beat Experience Lisboa.
Response from the owner We are very glag you enjoyed your stay in Lisbon. Thank you very much! Filipa and Bruno
“Warm ambient in a cozy apartment in the heart of Lisbon”
First of all, we had a warm reception from the owners of the apartment, which included a lot of interesting tips of the city. Note that the taxi could reach the apartment with no problem, which is perfect to pick up the bags (in alfama neighborhood it is not easy to find street where the taxi could reach!). The house is clean, with some light (not perfect but ok) and with a very nice and warm ambient. It has all the confort and during winter, it is always at a perfect temperature. But the best of this apartment is that it is really central, where you can walk to the main attractions (alfama, baixa) or you can take the tram for the other ones. It is close to Portas do Sol, a nice spot to visit and to relax in the evening. Perfect place to visit Lisbon!
Response from the owner It was a pleasure to welcome you, your wife and your two wonderful babies. We are everything was ok. Thank you.
“Great experience in Lisboa”
Our hosts - Filipa and Bruno - were very nice, helpful, quick to answer and provide advices. The flat was clean, in line with the description provided and is well located. Check in and check out were also very easy.
Response from the owner We try to make everything comfortable, clean and easy! :) We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Thank you. Filipa
“Great find in the alfama!”
We recently spent three nights in Lisbon and found this apartment to be a perfect choice. The owners, Bruno and Felipa, were a pleasure to work with and made everything easy, meeting us at the apartment and helping us get acquainted with the city (they speak excellent english). The apartment is located in a great part of the city, the charming alfama district, and is convenient to the castle, cathedral, and other sites. It was fun to jump on the #28 trolley just a minute's walk from the apartment. Even though the apartment is in a older part of town, it has been recently renovated and is in excellent condition and very new and clean. We found this apartment to be a great find and would not hesitate to stay here again!
Response from the owner Thank you so much. We are are glad you enjoyed the apartment and that everything went ok. It was a pleasure to meet you and we wish you all the best. Regards, Filipa and Bruno
