Lisbon has been the capital of Portugal since the 12th century. It has a long history that can be experienced in the old neighborhoods, which may be visited by foot or tram. The Atlantic climate offers wonderful conditions to travel all year round. The main feature of Pena is that it is a plateau, from which two main slopes descend, facing Martin Moniz and Avenida da Liberdade. It begins at the north-east of Rossio and extends to Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, commonly known by Campo de Santana. The streets on the two slopes are twisting and irregular, leading to many beautiful alleys and side streets.
Being one of the oldest districts in Lisbon, one is overwhelmed by the diversity of its buildings, constructed in accordance with the successive types of architecture through centuries. Wrought iron balconies from the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries can be seen everywhere. In constant dialogue with the wrought iron are the glazed tiles of the façades - a style reportedly brought from Brazil after the 16th century.
It is very close to the famous Bairro Alto, a nightlife area, which can be reached after walking down Rossio or by taking the Elevador do Lavra, the oldest funicular in Lisbon. This 120 year old elevator goes every 15 minutes down to Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, the location of many excellent fish restaurants as recommended by many city guides.

Great flat right in the middle of a busy area very good for nightlife, and easy access to all the sights of Lisbon.
My friend and me absolutely loved the apartment. Both bathrooms and bedrooms were nice and spacy and equipped with all you need to feel comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, too, dishwasher and even a washing machine included. Just around the corner was a crocery shop that - although small - had everything from bread, fresh fruit/vegetables and other necessities. The apartment is only a 10 minute walk from the city center, metro station etc. Checkin and checkout worked very timely and smoothly, very nice person who met us at the apartment and booked us a taxi on our checkout day to get to the airport. So we were absolutely satisfied and did not see one thing to complain about. We would definitely book this apartment again on our next trip to Lisbon. Thank you very much - dear hosts.
Everything worked out great. The apartment was clean and nice and it is located in a quiet side street. Unfortunately, the terrace is surrounded by a high wall and therefore not very inviting but all in all, agrees the value for money.
The accommodation was basic (in decoration, etc.) but sufficient for us. Central location, enough beds, wifi, tv, 2 bathrooms. As advertised. (we missed a toaster and a coffee machine)
Communications with the host was good. But the handover of the key was a bit unlucky. We arrived in the evening 9 pm, and while on the phone everything was ok, the guy who brought the key was late. So we had to wait up to 30 minutes outside. Not a deal breaker, but a point for attention (don't let a family with kids wait 30 minutes in a, for them, completely unknown location:) ... I will deduct 1 full point for this.
So, I was going to give a 7/10 (8 for the basic, but as advertised, accommodation and 1 minus point for the key-handover) but I will give 1 full point extra because the people at the office really took good care of us the last day ...
... we had an evening flight (10 pm), but had to check out at 11 am (normal procedure). The people in the office offered the following solution for our luggage. We could store the luggage at their office until 7 pm, so we could enjoy another, near full, day in Lisbon. At 7 pm we picked up our luggage, and the office called a taxi for us. Top marks for that!
So, all in all, a great stay!
A well deserved 8/10
Lisbon city to see and experience ..affascinante to explore every corner to go back!
Apartment really fantastic; nice clean functional with everything you need; attic with exposed beams with a small terrace on the square; convenient to the tram and metro to reach the center of Lisbon.
Time of delivery, information, timely and accurate.
Very recommended for a stay in Lisbon.
Thanks Philipp for answering our 1000 questions about Lisbon, showing us the Appartment in detail. Very nice stay at a quiet but central place....
PS: just paid 12 euro for the TAXI to the airport ......very good recommendation and very good service from you ...we come again !
We loved to stay here!
Really beautiful, clean with everything you might need in a quiet little street but still in the centre. Perfect for us- we would love to come back :)
Host was very friendly and showed us how to go in Lissabon. Towels and equipment was present, even the heater was on when we came. Perfect.
The appartement was situated walkingdistance from center.
It was a pleasure to stay at Margaridas apartment. The apartment is fully equipped with everything I needed for my stay. The area the apartment is located at is one of my favorites. It's close to the jardim do principe real, to bairo alto as well as to the avenida liberdade. You can reach everything walking.
It was really easy and uncomplicated to arrange the check in and I was warmly welcomed by Filipe. He explained me the apartment and gave me a lot of recommendations to fully enjoy my stay. I couldn't have wished a better first meeting with a local. Thank you Filipe and Margarida!
The Appartement lies very central in barrio alto. Nice to Start going around in Lisboa. The service was good. Quick we got help with our technical problems.
The beds are comfortable.
One negativ suggestion is the bad smell in the Appartement.
