"Nice place, great location, incredibly helpful owners"
The apartment is a nice clean modern place inside the walls of the Castello. Perfect for couples or a couple of friends. The locals are very friendly and welcoming and there are loads of great restaurants within 10 minutes walk. Rui and Sonia, the owners, are really friendly and helpful, and went a long way out of their way to help us. I highly recommend this place.

"Perfect location & fantastically helpful and welcoming owners"
This was our first trip to Lisbon and have to say the experience was made all the better by the location of this apartment and the warm welcome of Lui and Sonia. The apartment is situated on the ground floor of a house in a narrow street within castle walls. A 10-15 minute walk (downhill) brings you to the City Centre or the fantastic Praça do Comércio right on the river. And, if you fancy, there are two elevators to ease the journey back up. Would very highly recommend the Casa do Castelo to friends and family as a perfect base for 2-3 people to enjoy all that Lisbon has to offer.

"Casa do Sao Jorge is the closest you'll get to staying inside the landmark Castelo itself!"
It's in the picturesque Castelo district, with little shops and restaurants nearby. A short walk takes you to an "elevador"which will carry you to and from Pingo Doce supermarket and everything you'll need for a simple meal in your little kitchen. The bathroom is tiny but every thing works well. A comfortable double bed and a small sofa bed were ok for us two. Cheerfully decorated, it's one long, narrow room, divided by curtains. Excellent WiFi, tv and a great welcome from owners Rui and Sonia, who did all they could to make our stay in Lisbon interesting and enjoyable.

"Another amazing stay"
This is our second stay following our first back in February 2013 and it did not disappoint! The flat was absolutely perfect and Rui made us feel very much at home. Everything was just as good as it was then - if not slightly better with a new cable box with lots of channels! As I've mentioned on a previous review the flat is great and is a perfect base for a holiday in Lisbon with excellent transport Links. The city centre is very easy to get to - you can be in central Baixa walking in 15 minutes via the use of two lifts - one at the nearby Pingo Doce supermarket and a new lift that is just opposite called Elevedor Do Baixa. Alternatively you can get the bus 737 (€1,25 with a Zapping card) or go the scenic way with the 12E/28E old style trams. You are right in the midst of the castle and the suburbs of Graça and Alfama are close by. All in all very recommended!!

The best location ever! Very close to St George's castle, from there you can get to every single part of Lisbon either by public transport or by foot. Also i should mention amazing view and kindness of Sonia and Rui. I can recommend this apartment as a very best place to stay!

"Perfect location to explore Lisbon"
This apartment within the castle walls was the perfect base for our new year's stay in Lisbon. The apartment was in a great location and provided everything we needed. Rui and Sonia were very helpful and a range of information on the city was provided upon our arrival. Overall a great holiday!

"Best Vacation Rental Ever!"
This is one of those places that I hate to recommend, because I'm afraid everyone will fall in love with it as much as I did, and I'll never be able to book it again! It was bright, warm, fully furnished, close to grocery stores, and extremely comfortable. Most importantly I felt very very safe here. This flat immediately felt like home, and there were days that I had to force myself to stay out exploring and seeing new sites when I really just wanted to come back to this cozy place! That said, it really was the perfect location to base explorations of Lisbon from (right next to Castelo Sao Jorge!), and even though it's in the middle of the tourist area, I still felt like I was separated from too many tourists and like I was living amongst the locals. Sonia was incredibly helpful and sweet. She met me as soon as I arrived, and was immediately protective of me as a solo female traveler. She sat with me in the apartment after showing me everything I could possibly need to have in order to be comfortable during my stay (they thought of everything!) and then she sat and looked and listened to me intently while I blabbered on about random things. She was always just a phone call, text, or email away, and even was able to drop me at the airport on my last day for a very convenient price of 20 Euros. I can't imagine staying anywhere else when I return to Lisbon. If you're considering it, stop wasting your time right now, and just book it :)

Petit appartement agréable très bien placé tout près du château de castello et du quartier alfama. On descend très vite au centre de lisbonne par les ascenseurs gratuits. Les propriétaires sont adorables et on peut les appeler pour le moindre problème, ou question. La salle d'eau est très petite mais pour quelques nuits , ça va. Il pourrait y avoir un peu plus d'étagères pour ranger les affaires et ce serait parfait!

"Geat apartment, great location, fantastic owner"
My girlfriend and I stayed at the apartment for 2 nights over a busy weekend. The owners, Rui and Sonia, were incredibly helpful, spending lots of useful information in advance, meeting us on arrival and allowing us a flexible departure time. The apartment itself is in a great location, comfortable and very well priced. Having travelled extensively around the world, it was refreshing to be greeted by such a helpful and friendly face. Would certainly recommend and stay again.
