We really enjoyed the Sao Gens apartment. It's a great studio - compact and has enough room for two people. A fifth floor walk-up, you can see the river from the deck; we enjoyed popping out to see whether the morning fog had lifted. Everything was very clean, with a lovely modern design. The bed was especially comfortable.
The true highlight was Gisela and Rui - they picked us up AND dropped us off at the airport and made us feel most welcome (the bottle of Sao Gens Apartments wine helped!). I had asked whether any Christmas markets might be open, and Gisela went out of her way to research and find one that had already started (most were starting after we left).
Location wise, this is a quiet street. It's a bit of a walk to the high energy districts, and that walk through the charming neighborhoods is worth it ... be prepared for the steep hills.
All in all, a definite recommend.
