It is a very typical Portuguese flat , with wood floors, white and blue tiles on the kitchen walls and some traditional attic windows.
Entering this wonderful and cute apartment, you will find the hall/living area, with a TV and two comfortable single sofa beds. The bedroom has a double bed where you are going to have very relaxing nights, a wardrobe and a reading area with two wicker chairs where you can relax and read the Lisbon guide before explore the city.
The kitchen is fully equipped with all the things you need to prepare your meals, making your stay easier and perfect and the bathroom has a glass shower cabin.
Situated in the most interesting and rich part of the city, close to the Mirador of Santa Catarina in Chiado.
From this place you can see almost all the city by foot , but if you prefer, you have at the door of the flat, tram and buses stops or metro , to take you to the Castle São Jorge or to the district of Belém.
Enjoy your stay in this wonderful city! Hope to see you soon!

My experience with Richard was satisfactory in the sense that he responded to all my questions and the keys were where he said they would be. The apartment is in an AMAZING location and is not without charm, and in this sense we are very satisfied. HOWEVER, it is in an advanced state of disrepair, everything is old, marked, deteriorated, uncared for, musty, even a bit gross. It is obvious that he does not put any care or special interest in keeping it up and it is QUITE dirty (toilet, kitchen, floors, dust). I think the linen was clean, but it was so old, spotted, unpressed, and musty that it felt dirty. Everything in the kitchen was quite dirty, even disgusting (we took photos). This apartment needs a good, deep clean, fresh paint, new linens, and some renewed decoration. Just some TLC!
A nice, clean apartment on the fourth (fifth?) floor. No elevator since it is located in an old neighbourhood. No light in the hallway so you have to climb the stairs in darkness or use your cell phone as a flashlight. The neighbourhood is in an old district so the streets are not well lit. It could be a problem for a single person, however, my friend and I did not have any problems.
The host was nice. I would likely recommend the apartment to others although no light on the stairs was annoying. Location is good - about 10-15 min. walk to to the touristy area.
It is a nice flat close to many beautiful places of lisboa. it was clean in the flat, kitchen and bathroom were well equipped. from the flat we had a nice overview to the surroundings. no lights in the corridor of the house. the space of the flat was a bit limited, the bed wasnt very comfortable.
the owner was very friendly and helpful.
My boyfriend and me had a very very very great time in this very cosy and full equipped apartment. It's very central for those who want to spent time in the scene clubs / and bars of lisabon. Bars,supermarkets, bus/train stations are very close by foot. Richard is a very smart and nice host.
Thank you again.
We spent a few days visiting Lisbon. The apartment well located to avoid having to move the car. We had trouble finding the apartment but Richard helped us by phone. The apartment is a 4th floor without elevator and the stairs do not have electricity so at night you see nothing. The apartment has a flashlight to fix it. That would be something to consider. Otherwise the right apartment. They should talk to other neighbors and put a light on each floor ... Generally well equipped the apartment with everything you need. Thanks Richard
Pasamos unos días visitando Lisboa. El apartamento bien ubicado para no tener que mover el coche. Tuvimos problema de encontrar el apartamento pero Richard nos ayudo por teléfono. El apartamento es un 4º piso sin ascensor y las escaleras no tienen luz por lo que en la noche no se ve nada. En el apartamento hay una linterna para solucionarlo. Eso seria algo a tener en cuenta. Por lo demás el apartamento correcto. Deberian hablar con los demás vecinos y poner una luz en cada piso... En general bien equipado el apartamento con todo lo necesario. Gracias Richard
Perfect location to explore the old town. Well equiped, comfortable.
I would say the only downside to this appartement was the squeaking bed.
It's definitely nice place to stay!
Richard is a particularly welcoming and host, speaking French was very good advice. The apartment is furnished with taste and well located in Lisbon. There are 4 floors up. We should just think about changing bedding (mattress creaking at the slightest movement).
Richard est un hôte particulièrement accueillant et disponible, parlant français il a été de très bon conseil. L'appartement est aménagé avec beaucoup de goût et bien situé dans Lisbonne. Il y a 4 étages à monter. Il faudrait juste penser à changer la literie ( sommier qui grince au moindre mouvement ).
I have really enjoyed the days i spent in lisbon and one of the reasons is the place i rented... from the flat you can go walking to a lot of places and you have everything you need there... i didnt met richard but he answeed all my questions very fast using this web... if i ever travel back to lisbon and im sure i will i would try to stay in the same place... so thank you richard for being a part of my trip and thank you for beong so nice with me
We spend 4 comfortable nights at Richards appartment. Although we never met him, communication was fast and easy.
