This place was cute, quiet, cosy, and clean. Our trains/buses in Portugal were often delayed, so it was really nice that Ana left our hostel key in a lockbox outside the door and messaged us with the code a few days before our arrival instead of us having to coordinate meeting her at the apartment. Ana checked in to make sure we got to the apartment safe and also touched base on our last day to let us know where to leave the key and see if we needed help arranging a taxi ride to the airport. When we arrived at the apartment, we found that she had left us a treat of wine and cheese which was such a kind gesture! t want a cookie cutter hotel experience, then this is the place for you!

As previously mentioned, the place is in a great neighborhood with lots of life. I would find it challenging to fit more than 2 people in the place. There were no issues with the unit itself - the wifi and the shower all worked great. 2 things I feel we should give other prospective guests a heads up about - the air conditioner is only strong enough to cool the bedroom so the living room can get warm at times. And second, we found the bed uncomfortable it and did not give us the quality rest we hoped for.

The apartment although small, had absolutely everything I needed to enjoy my short stay in Lisbon. It is centrally located and there are a lot of restaurants around the area. It was a bit tough finding the apartment when I first arrived, since there are a lot of streets that you cannot drive on around there. Just remember that the closest open road is right in front of Museu do Faro and you will be fine! Ana was readily available during my stay and I would definitely recommend staying at this apartment!

I believe this AirBnb had it's glory days. However the glory days are well over as there is obvious signs of neglect.. in running it as a business. Prepare to have alarming bad communication. Never have i come across communication whereby the host respond only when they feel like it... That can be more than one hour later .. after placing text messages, voice mails, and AirBnb message. Is not acceptable ! The checking in was also an adventure as the posted info and the description to get to the place is not accurate. The bed I slept in... I thought it should be toss away at least 2 years ago... Is soft and springs are already starting to pinch my back. Because of the bad bed, it created bad back problems for the rest of my trip. The fan is not working in the bathroom and lack of any plugs for plugging any electronics. Lighting is horrible. I have stayed in at least 10 Airbnb places in Europe over the past two years. This for sure is the worst by far ! If you only care for the location and nothing else... perhaps you will like this Airbnb I believe this place can easily be improved to put it back into better state for folks to enjoy... i hope so for the sake of future travellers to this Airbnb

The house itself was very nice. We were there two friends and we liked the location and comfort. It was exactly like in the photos. We had a little problem with the electric kettle which, connected in the kitchen, caused a light cut, that we solved by connecting it in other place. What annoyed us was the lack of real contact with the owner or her representative. Until the main day of the arrival we did not receive the answer to e-mails, sms and calls that someone would welcome us at home. We didn't know the master lock system, so waiting in front of the house, with our luggage we were scared that we could not enter. Before leaving, we also didn't receive the response to the sms and calls about what should we do with the key. We left it at home and closed the door, but we would like to know that it was OK for the owner.

This apartment is fantastic, really spacious for an Alfama apartment, the bathroom is great, really good shower and facilities. Air con in the bedroom worked well. Kitchen was perfect, we cooked most nights. It was nice to be provided with cleaning products for kitchen and washing machine. Very comfortable and clean. TV was perfect as was wifi. Location equally perfect, the heart of Alfama, restaurants, bars, cafes etc all immediately outside the house. Train station and great supermarket ( pingo doce) 5 -10 minutes walk away, no hills to climb! We loved it, thank you.

Great location. A good little place to stay if you will be going out a lot. However... As other reviews have stated, the flat had a bad drain smell, and there was a lot of other people's hair clogging the plug holes in the shower and hand basin. Shower was a bit mouldy and had someone else's razor still in it. Bed is uncomfortable, unstable and incredibly creaky. Also the host did not reply to my message a week before check in to make arrangements, eventually I reached them via (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). After having arranged to meet at 6pm, we waited on the front step until 6.15 when the host told us the key for the flat is inside a masterlock, so we needn't have waited on the step outside. Finally, the kettle was faulty, as when we plugged it in, all of the electricity in the flat switched off and we had to search for the fuse box. So, for our stay we boiled water in a saucepan to make tea. Apartment was quite small however for the price is was fairly reasonable. Had the above not happened, it would be fantastic value.
