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.

"Excellent apartment to visit Lisbon"
We are a family with two young children and the apartment offer all facilities we need, the owners gave us a lot of information and indications to visit the city and surroundings in the best way.
The location is wonderful, enable visit almost all the city center walking, also there are supermarkets and the elevators very close which is very helpful.
We went to Lisbon by car and to park it in the streets around the castle has been very easy and free.
Definitively, to rent this apartment has been a success.
