“Nice and comfortable flat”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2013

We stayed for one week in September 2013 and used this flat for a city-trip and at the same time for just a couple of days off with several books. It's very nice and comfortable furnished and has a short distance to all interesting points in Lisbon. Seeing Lisbon and reading books on days with rain was perfect here. Paulo was a very service minded host. Thanks :-)
