Lisbon has been the capital of Portugal since the 12th century. It has a long history that can be experienced in the old neighborhoods, which may be visited by foot or tram. The Atlantic climate offers wonderful conditions to travel all year round. The main feature of Pena is that it is a plateau, from which two main slopes descend, facing Martin Moniz and Avenida da Liberdade. It begins at the north-east of Rossio and extends to Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, commonly known by Campo de Santana. The streets on the two slopes are twisting and irregular, leading to many beautiful alleys and side streets.
Being one of the oldest districts in Lisbon, one is overwhelmed by the diversity of its buildings, constructed in accordance with the successive types of architecture through centuries. Wrought iron balconies from the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries can be seen everywhere. In constant dialogue with the wrought iron are the glazed tiles of the façades - a style reportedly brought from Brazil after the 16th century.
It is very close to the famous Bairro Alto, a nightlife area, which can be reached after walking down Rossio or by taking the Elevador do Lavra, the oldest funicular in Lisbon. This 120 year old elevator goes every 15 minutes down to Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, the location of many excellent fish restaurants as recommended by many city guides.

Very neat and nice apartment in the historic center, so very centrally located. Well equipped (to the washing machine - without detergent; that would bring!). For the central location also quite recommendable quiet and without limitation. Nice reception, easy check out: You can just the keys on the table in the kitchen.
Sehr gepflegte und hübsche Wohnung im Altstadtviertel, also ganz zentral gelegen. Gut ausgestattet (bis hin zur Waschmaschine - ohne Waschmittel; das wäre mitzubringen!). Für die zentrale Lage auch durchaus ruhig und ohne Einschränkung empfehlenswert. Netter Empfang, problemloses Auschecken: Man lässt einfach die Schlüssel auf dem Tisch in der Küche.
La ubicación del piso es bastante buena y la atención recibida fue en todo momento muy amable, servicial y atenta.
Sin embargo, nos encontramos con algunas zonas del apartamento que no estaban muy limpias, y tuvimos que volver a pasar nosotras el cepillo de barrer (por cierto, el cepillo parecía de juguete para niños de 5 años).
La ducha era toda una aventura... Puesto que salía agua caliente y fría de forma intermitente, y además se salía por fuera. Tuvimos que solucionarlo con toallas en el suelo a modo de dique, para no salir nadando del baño.
Y la cama del dormitorio principal, estaba rota la pata de la cama, así que tuvimos que ser nuevamente creativas y colocar una banqueta inclinada debajo para que terminara de caer al suelo mientras de dormía.
Considero que se podría haber cuidado más el aspecto del apartamento, puesto que poco tiene que ver con la foto que aparece en el anuncio.
Very nice apartment with a great, central location.
Only minus: balcony without view or in the basement.
Otherwise, tip top .... at any time.
Sehr schöne Wohnung mit toller, zentraler Lage.
Einziges Minus: Balkon ohne Blick bzw. im Keller.
Ansonsten tip top .... jederzeit wieder.
Thanks Philipp for answering our 1000 questions about Lisbon, showing us the Appartment in detail. Very nice stay at a quiet but central place....
PS: just paid 12 euro for the TAXI to the airport ......very good recommendation and very good service from you ...we come again !
We loved to stay here!
Really beautiful, clean with everything you might need in a quiet little street but still in the centre. Perfect for us- we would love to come back :)
Home impeccable staff Wimdu. 10/10! Filipe is very friendly and gives advice on the sights to visit and tricks for walking in Lisbon.
On housing, 5/10! Pictures taken correspond to a new apartment, unfortunately this is not / no longer the case (small room / small bathroom / broken foot single beds, electric meter jumps if startup electric heater & hob), it may need to revise the counter amperage to avoid this kind of inconvenience.
For summer it is not annoying but for the winter it becomes more problematic.
At the sight, this corresponds entirely to the announcement!
In short Overall rating 3/5
Accueil personnel Wimdu impeccable. 10/10! Filipe est très sympathique et nous donne des conseils sur les monuments à visiter et les petites astuces pour se balader dans Lisbonne.
Concernant le logement, 5/10 ! Les photos prises correspondent à un appartement récent, malheureusement ce n'est pas/plus le cas ( petite chambre / salle de bain minuscule / pieds des lits simple cassés, compteur électrique qui saute si mise en route radiateur électrique & plaque cuisson ), il faudra peut-être revoir l'ampérage du compteur pour éviter ce genre de désagréments.
Pour l'été ce n'est pas gênant mais pour l'hiver cela devient plus problématique.
Au niveau de la vue, cela correspond tout à fait à l'annonce !
Bref Note globale 3/5
Nice apartment, easily accessible, with four adults it was optimal.
Good access, quiet to sleep.
The living room carpet could be exchanged times .....
Nette Wohnung, gut zu erreichen, mit vier Erwachsenen war es optimal.
Gut zu erreichen, leise zum Schlafen.
Der Wohnzimmerteppich könnte mal ausgetauscht werden.....
We had an amazing time in Lisboa. The apartment was really good and comfortable for all of us. It was good to find and when we had some questions or anything it was easy to get in contact with the owners. The view from the kitchen was perfect to start the day and the neighborhood was quite and nice to explore. I think if you are coming in summer its better with the temperature because the heatings are not so good but you get used to it and its not a big problem. If you´re coming to lisboa and you dont want to stay in the touristic centre i can really recomend this apartment. Belém has a lot of great buldings and arcitucture und the public transport to the centre is also really good. It takes you 20min. Thank you very much.
Host was very friendly and showed us how to go in Lissabon. Towels and equipment was present, even the heater was on when we came. Perfect.
The appartement was situated walkingdistance from center.
It was a pleasure to stay at Margaridas apartment. The apartment is fully equipped with everything I needed for my stay. The area the apartment is located at is one of my favorites. It's close to the jardim do principe real, to bairo alto as well as to the avenida liberdade. You can reach everything walking.
It was really easy and uncomplicated to arrange the check in and I was warmly welcomed by Filipe. He explained me the apartment and gave me a lot of recommendations to fully enjoy my stay. I couldn't have wished a better first meeting with a local. Thank you Filipe and Margarida!
