Reviews of this property
Apartamento que cubrió mis expectativas. Pequeño pero equipado. Sólo falta un pequeño armario para guardar la ropa correctamente. Tranquilo, silencioso y en el mismo corazón de Alfama, un barrio lleno de encanto.
En un principio alquilamos este apartamento, pero hubo problemas con unos "pequeños animales" según ellos los definieron y fuimos cambiados a otro (apartamento 109) con teóricamente mejores condiciones. Hasta ahí bien, son cosas q pueden pasar.
El día de la llegada, estuvimos cerca de media hora en la puerta, después d un largo viaje, sin saber nada de si quien tenía que recibirnos venía o no, a pesar de que les habíamos llamado avisando de que ya estábamos cerca, como ellos habían pedido; y sin escribirnos ellos al menos avisando de que llegaban tarde. Como cosa positiva diré que hay un regalo de bienvenida de una botella de vino rosado.
El problema real ocurre al entrar en el piso: no había sábanas para el sofá cama. Éramos 3 personas y por lógica el sofá cama iba a ser usado, pero sólo encontramos dos edredones nórdicos (en pleno julio), uno de ellos sin funda siquiera. Y ya qué decir de la limpieza, que es quizás el aspecto más básico en un negocio como éste. La alfombra y el sofá estaban grises del polvo, con manchas que no habían sido ni lavadas. Encontré cabellos negros largos que no pertenecían a ninguno de nosotros, pero el momento apoteósico fue al encontrar 2 cucarachas en la zona de la cocina a mitad de nuestra estancia en el piso, tras escribirles un email, ni siquiera recibimos respuesta....

This flat is ideal in every respect. Located on a pedestrian street, above pastry shops and restaurants, it's in a busy part of town but it's quiet enough, since the bustle of the city subsides around 10:00 pm. The flat is easily reached by stairs or a small lift, and the building opens onto the pedestrian street. We were dropped off by taxi only a block away. The location is ideal in the centre of the Baixa district of Lisbon, the flat part in the centre of the city, with easy access to two railway stations, the Metro, trams and buses. Outside the front door is every convenience: a restaurant across the street, a convenience store almost next door run by a helpful and friendly family, and two pastry/coffee shops at the corner for your morning dose of caffeine. A large grocery store is two blocks away, an even larger one near the Rossio train station only a few blocks further. As to the flat itself, it's two bedrooms are well separated, each with its own bathroom, and the living room/dining room combination is spacious, with a nice TV with hundreds of channels in various languages. The kitchen is well equipped (even with a clothes washer and drying stand) and has everything one needs. We found it excellent for two adult couples, and it would serve a fairly large family with additional accommodation in the living room. The managers were excellent, on time and responsive, and we could not have hoped for a better flat, in a better location, for a perfect visit to a wonderful city. We are recommending it highly.
Bueno, inicialmente, el apartamento seleccionado, no fue el que elegimos, eso si, debo recalcar que tuvieron la gentileza de ponerse en contacto conmigo y mostrarme otro apartamento, de iguales características, muy cerca al centro histórico, que fue el
Apartamento 37 , muy bien ubicado, cerca a los lugares de interés y con una amplia oferta culinaria.
En líneas generales, cumplió las expectativas de alojamiento previstas.
La persona que nos recibió, muy amable, el apartamento muy limpio, con las cosas básicas.
El wifi excelente .
Tal vez habría que renovar el TV , modelo muy antiguo y con pocos canales.
Das Apartment 265 in Principe Real hat mir sehr gut gefallen - es ist geräumig, sehr gut gelegen und mit allem ausgestattet, was man für einen bequemen Aufenthalt benötigt. Der Service (Kontaktaufnahme, Check-in & Check-Out, Einweisung) hat perfekt funktioniert. Ich werde dieses Apartment gern wieder besuchen.
We met Thelma at the apartment, she gave us lots of information about the apartment and the local area. Although the apartment seemed smaller than we imagined by the photos it was really lovely. Both beds (normal double sized) were very comfortable. The kitchen area is fine and has all you need, we didn't eat at the kitchen table as we were out on the lovely sunny balcony most of the time we were in the apartment. The living area with TV is also comfortable and a nice addition when too warm outside. There is no air con in the apartment but we had the doors open most of the time and the curtains closed in the daytime and it kept the heat down. There are 2 outdoor areas but the balcony with lovely river views is the best. The bathroom with shower is great. As this apartment is on the fourth floor you will have lots of stairs to contend with, keeps you fit though! There is a little noise from the street below in the early hours as the gardeners in the park start early and also on Flea Market days but all in all not that bad. Would recommend this apartment for 2 to 3 people, maybe more and it may be too crowded. Lovely area in old Alfama with cobbled streets and hole in the wall bars, best area to stay from what we saw of Lisbon.
Very nice stay
Der Schlagzeile ist eigentlich nichts hinzu zufügen. Man muss aber erst mal 220 Stufen, in mehreren Etappen, von der nächsten METRO-Station erklimmen.
Der Blick ist wirklich fantastisch. Die Wohnung selbst bietet alles was man braucht. Man hat einen seperaten kleine Platz unter einem Zitronenbaum, wo man sitzen und essen kann. Darüber ein Hühnerstall, mit einem Hahn, der pünklich weckt. Aber uns hat es nicht gestört. Alles gut, gern mal wieder.
Buenos días : Lo mejor de la estancia: Thiago , nos recomendó sitios que ver, comery relajarse. El barrio muy típico y la casa rehabilitada con gusto , te encuentras bien en el pequeño pero coqueto apartamento. . Para la perfección mejorar pequeños detalles como el jabonero oxidado del lavabo o apenas papel higiénico en el servicio. La escalera del inmueble estuvo sin limpiar toda la estancia.
De todo ello me quedo con la simpatía de Thiago y la tranquilidad y la magia del barrio. Saludos
It's a great appartement at a great locaties. It is in the middle of the centrum And just a minute away from metro station rossio. The airco, bathrooms And bedrooms are great. Although one of the beds Isn't that comfortable, which is unfortunately the bed in the room with Airco. They might switch the beds around? So the place And appartement Its self is great, But the service.. We arrived And were told a wrong house number. After we arrived we got no instructions about the appartement. Apparently the Airco is leaking so you have to empty Some buckets which are standing underneath a van outside of the appartement otherwhise people at a restaurant get a little bit wet. We weren't told anything about that. They didn't Explain How the warm water was regulated And that was a little uncomfy, Because sometimes you have to be Hans klok to fix warm water. The most frustrating thing however was that we weren't told about a houskeeper. One day she just tried to walk in in the early Morning while we just came out the shower. I had put the door on lock otherwhise she would just have been looking at me who just came out of the shower... she started to call someone And left without saying a word. The organisation didn't call us for an apology And to Tell that she would come back later, Because she did that without us knowing that. Don't get me wrong it is great that the appartement is cleaned, but leave in mind we didn't get the chance to hide our valuables. There were a lot of things which are very valuable Laying in our appartement And it is not a very relaxed feeling that someone might walk in without you knowing it.
