Apartamento que cubrió mis expectativas. Pequeño pero equipado. Sólo falta un pequeño armario para guardar la ropa correctamente. Tranquilo, silencioso y en el mismo corazón de Alfama, un barrio lleno de encanto.
En un principio alquilamos este apartamento, pero hubo problemas con unos "pequeños animales" según ellos los definieron y fuimos cambiados a otro (apartamento 109) con teóricamente mejores condiciones. Hasta ahí bien, son cosas q pueden pasar.
El día de la llegada, estuvimos cerca de media hora en la puerta, después d un largo viaje, sin saber nada de si quien tenía que recibirnos venía o no, a pesar de que les habíamos llamado avisando de que ya estábamos cerca, como ellos habían pedido; y sin escribirnos ellos al menos avisando de que llegaban tarde. Como cosa positiva diré que hay un regalo de bienvenida de una botella de vino rosado.
El problema real ocurre al entrar en el piso: no había sábanas para el sofá cama. Éramos 3 personas y por lógica el sofá cama iba a ser usado, pero sólo encontramos dos edredones nórdicos (en pleno julio), uno de ellos sin funda siquiera. Y ya qué decir de la limpieza, que es quizás el aspecto más básico en un negocio como éste. La alfombra y el sofá estaban grises del polvo, con manchas que no habían sido ni lavadas. Encontré cabellos negros largos que no pertenecían a ninguno de nosotros, pero el momento apoteósico fue al encontrar 2 cucarachas en la zona de la cocina a mitad de nuestra estancia en el piso, tras escribirles un email, ni siquiera recibimos respuesta....
We had a very nice stay in an amazing apartment in an amazing city. Very good contact with the host before and during the travel.
10/10 would book again.
Although it has been some time, I remember very well that it was a great experience to stay at this appartment for some days. We even stayed longer than intended and that was no problem at all. Beautiful view when sitting on the rooftop at night or day. The slanted walls throughout the whole appartment give it a funky feeling, but is a bit inconvenient for very tall people. Would recommend this place to anyone wanting a Lisboa city experience, as it is very central and close to most sights.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
The apartment corresponds to the Wimdu description.
Few remarks : as required we called 30 minutes prior our arrival, and we had to wait the key holder 20min. in front of the building, as their office is stayed 10min. far from the building. Very unpleasant. During the stay, we had to manage the drying of some sheets and towels from one previous occupiers. Handles of some pans were nearly broken, very dangerous with boiling water.
The 3-level stairs are significantly steep. Coul be added in the description.
However, the stay was pleasant and conveniently situated.
Absolutely wrong described Apartment: not quiet !!! otherwise very stylish, but very non-functional. Loud, hot, not really be ventilated because of the noise ...; Floors and great mattress great, but bed too narrow. No shelf next to it ..
Absolut falsch beschriebene Wohnung : NICHT ruhig!!! ansonsten sehr stylish, aber sehr unfunktional. Laut, heiß, nicht wirklich lüftbar wegen dem Lärm...; Fußböden toll und Matratze toll, aber Bett zu schmal. Keine Abstellfläche daneben..
Upsides - Absolutely amazing location. Beautiful apartment. Friendly staff. Bottle of wine on arrival. Couldn't ask for a better place to stay.
Downsides - hot water service would heat up once, then shutdown and had to be reset 2 hours prior to every shower. Pillows were really flat and little. Tried to charge extra 30 euros/night when I requested a 3rd bed to be made up. Left waiting for an hour after arranging the arrival time by email and had to make an extra phone call. No hand towels in bathrooms. Had to buy more toilet paper. A partial roll in each bathroom is not sufficient for a 4 days stay for 3 people!
Very welcome. Many explanations on life ã Lisbon, good restaurants. The good addresses ...
No problem. The apartment is perfect ã all points of view.
We were very satisfied.
Très bon accueil . Beaucoup d'explications sur la vie ã Lisbonne , les bons restaurants. Les bonnes adresses ...
Aucun problème . L'appartement est parfait ã tous les points de vue .
Nous avons été très satisfaits .
Perfect location of strategic sightseeing. Apartment with every comfort with some small defect ... a drain in the bathroom not working, motor outside the air conditioner if lit does not collect water with rain falling in the tables in the restaurant below, lack of soap and detergents. Solved these minor inconveniences I would say that the accommodation is absolutely perfect. Comfortable living room with access to all the TV except the Italian. Silent on the 4th floor. What remain perplexed is the commission of Wimdu that seems exaggerated compared to the actual cost of the apartment (€ 85?!?)
Perfetta ubicazione dell'appartamento strategica per visita della città. Appartamento con tutti i confort con qualche piccolo difetto riscontrato...uno scarico del bagno non funzionante, motore esterno del condizionatore che se acceso non raccoglie l'acqua con caduta a pioggia nei tavoli del ristorante sottostante, mancanza di detersivi e sapone. Risolti questi piccoli inconvenienti direi che l'alloggio è assolutamente perfetto. Soggiorno comodo con accesso a tutte le TV tranne l'italiana. Silenzioso al 4°piano con ascensore. Ciò di cui rimango perplesso è la provvigione di Wimdu che mi sembra esagerata rispetto al reale costo dell'appartamento (€ 85?!?)
