We had a wonderful week-long trip to Portugal, and Cristina's apartment was the perfect place--both in size and location--for us. We really enjoyed the hustle and bustle and energy of the neighborhood, which continued late into the night. That said, we never had a problem with noise, and we were able to get in many good long nights of sleep, critical after long days of sightseeing.
Cristina was very responsive to our questions, and we were particularly pleased when both Cristina and her friend Ana accommodated us with an issue we had with our flights on arriving from the US.
We very much enjoyed our trip to Portugal, and we highly recommend this property.
If you are a tourist wanting to experience the flavor of old town, this is the place. On the main street Rue de Augusta, which is closed to vehicle traffic, you can enjoy the views, the artists, singers, mimes, vendors and tourists from the balcony. Close the balcony doors and it's quiet and peaceful. The bed is very comfortable. The kitchen was small, but all we needed. The apt was immaculately clean. The TV had plenty of English speaking channels. It was close to good restaurants, fun shopping, a grocery store, and plenty of tourist sites. The hop on, hop off bus stop was two blocks away. If we had one complaint, the family room sofas were worn out, but the host indicated the apt was to be remodeled. The host, Leonel, was very responsive and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.
