Reviews of this property
The apartment is consistent with the photographs presented on the ad. Tastefully renovated, located in a quiet neighborhood in the heart of Lisbon, the apartment would be ideal. However, few details are tainting the overall assessment. The sofa bed which lacks 5 battens (much less comfortable to sleep), the sink drains and clogged shower, the washing machine HS, and addicts screens, wifi and a TV that does not work! All this is not very serious, you say, but when a benefit, we reported the problem to the owner, as it promises to pass in the day to replace the bed slat and you pay nobody gives you a sign of life, you go necessarily unhappy or angry! Finally, the flashy, it's tempting, but comfortable essential for a relaxing holiday!
L'appartement est conforme aux photos présentées sur l'annonce. Rénové avec goût, situé dans un quartier calme en plein coeur de Lisbonne, l'appartement pourrait être idéal. Cependant, quelques détails viennent entâcher l'appréciation globale. Le canapé lit auquel il manque 5 lattes (beaucoup moins confortable pour y dormir), les canalisations du lavabo et de la douche bouchées, le lave-linge HS, et pour les accros des écrans, une wifi et un téléviseur qui ne fonctionnent pas! Tout cela n'est pas très grave me direz-vous,mais lorsque l'on paie une prestation, que l'on signale le problème au propriétaire, que celui-ci vous promet de passer dans la journée pour remplacer les lattes du sommier et que personne ne vous donne signe de vie, vous partez forcément mécontent, voire fâché! Conclusion, le tape à l'oeil, c'est alléchant, mais le confortable indispensable pour passer des vacances reposantes!
Reviews for this host's other properties
First of all, the staff was very kind and polite! Alex managed a cab and helped us out for our emergency flight.
The place looked proper and big. The bathrooms were ok and clean.
The rooms and beds also ok
The main reason we won't stay here anymore was the extreme noise of the club below us. We stayed from Thursday till Sunday and the nuisance was enormous!
We also disliked the fourth floor without elevator but that felt like peanuts compared our sleep during the nights.
In case of emergency, like fire, there was no escape possible. Except for jumping outside the window from 10 mtr high.
For us we liked the location during the day but we recommend another place as well.
The apartment looked really nice and it's location is great, even though it's hard to find a parking spot for free.
However it lacked in kitchen suppies e.g. coffee mashine or bowls.
First of all the pictures again detract from the real situation. The apartment was not clean, long black hair could be found everywhere on the stove to admit, I find this very onsmakelijk.Op the microwave was a layer of dust which once again emphasizes the app. was not cleaned while we are told on arrival that we had no access yet because it had not been cleaned. Around the stove everywhere was the trim? The shower curtain was not too tightly. There was a chair whose legs were all removed, not all the lights did. The apartment at the rear which was apparently caused inhabited by 4 young ladies for much noise late into the night, 3:30 pm !!!! The apartment is through the narrow spiral staircase hard to achieve especially with koffers.Dit app. a tegenvaller.Jammer was there for us the previous times we have achieved this was always neatly trimmed through Wimdu.
Allereerst doen de foto`s wederom afbreuk aan de werkelijke situatie. Het appartement was niet schoon , lange zwarte haren waren overal te vinden tot op het fornuis aan toe,ik vind dit erg onsmakelijk.Op de magnetron lag een laagje stof wat maar eens benadrukt dat het app. niet was gereinigd terwijl ons word verteld bij aankomst dat wij nog geen toegang hadden omdat het nog niet was schoongemaakt. Rond het fornuis zat overal de bekleding los? Het douche gordijn zat niet al te vast. Er was een stoel waarvan alle poten waren verwijderd , niet alle lampen deden het. Het appartement aan de achterzijde dat schijnbaar werd bewoond door 4 jonge dames zorgde voor veel geluidsoverlast tot in de late nacht , 03.30 uur!!!! Het appartement is door de smalle wenteltrap moeilijk te bereiken met name met koffers.Dit app. was voor ons een tegenvaller.Jammer daar de vorige keren dat wij via Wimdu hebben geboekt dit altijd keurig in orde was.
A very nice apartment in a convenient location. When occupied by the windowless rooms are a bit difficult. Beautiful view of the city. From there, the city is easy to explore on foot. Key handover and acceptance have worked smoothly.
Ein sehr schönes Appartement in günstiger Lage. Bei voller Belegung sind die fensterlosen Zimmer etwas schwierig. Schöner Ausblick auf die Stadt. Von da ist ist die Stadt gut zu Fuß zu erkunden. Schlüsselübergabe und -abnahme haben reibungslos geklappt.
Wonderful apartment! Perfect location and sufficiently equipped interior! We did not miss anything, this was our trip of life and do not want to live in another place. It gives 10!
Cudowne mieszkanie ! Perfekcyjna lokacja i wystarczająco wyposażone wnętrze ! Nie brakowało nam niczego, to był nasz wyjazd życia i nie chcielibyśmy mieszkać w inny miejscu. Daje 10 !
The apartment is located in a pleasant neighborhood and is in an old house. The interior is full of Ikea. And it was quite cold; the apartment was very difficult to heat. The patio doors were broken causing a lot of heat was lost.
The bathroom was not clean as there were hairs in the bathtub from the previous guests. We also had no dishcloths and towels in the bathroom. Also lacked a garbage can in the kitchen.
The power was still out when we wanted to cook and that made it very difficult to prepare a meal. The coffeemaker flowed always about if we wanted coffee, the can did not fit with the device. The plus was that the beds were good. but that was really the only thing we are going to complain to the landlord. and who has adapted a number of things, including lamps replaced because it did not. and we got two tea towels.
The welcome was friendly, but we are sorry that the owner there is only out to make money and not want to give any service to the customers.
Het appartement ligt in een prettige buurt en is in een oud huis. De inrichting is volledig van Ikea. En het was er nogal koud; het appartement was erg moeilijk te verwarmen. de terrasdeuren waren stuk waardoor er veel warmte verloren ging.
De badkamer was niet schoon zo lagen er haren in het bad van de vorige gasten. We hadden ook geen theedoeken en handdoeken in de badkamer. Ook ontbrak er een vuilnisbak in de keuken.
De stroom viel steeds uit als we wilden koken en dat maakte het erg ingewikkeld om een maaltijd te bereiden. Het koffiezet-apparaat stroomde steeds over als we koffie wilde zetten, de kan bleek niet bij het apparaat te passen. Het pluspunt was dat de bedden goed waren. maar dat was ook echt het enige, we zijn gaan klagen bij de verhuurder. en die heeft wel een aantal dingen aangepast, onder andere lampen vervangen omdat die het niet deden. en we hebben 2 theedoeken gekregen.
De ontvangst was vriendelijk, maar wij vinden het jammer dat de eigenaar er alleen op uit is om geld te verdienen en geen enkele service aan de klanten wil geven.
Great apartment in good location! Very spacious and well maintained.
People suburb are also incredibly nice and accommodating.
At any time gladly again.
Super Apartment in gute Lage! Sehr geräumig und bestens gepflegt.
Die Leute Vorort sind zudem wahnsinnig nett und zuvorkommend.
Jeder Zeit gern wieder.
