We loved our stay at Paula’s ! Paula was there to meet us when we arrived and was so warm and welcoming. We appreciated all the little touches, like bread, fruit, coffee and wine!! The apartment was clean and and decorated so beautifully. Also appreciated the lovely toiletries and the towels were heavenly! One of the best things about this apartment was the location. The neighborhood was so much fun to explore. There were so many restaurants, coffee shops, wine bars and small gift shops, all within walking distance.

Paula's spot in the Alfama area is so well-located and nicely updated that you feel as though you have the best spot in town. Paula was really great with communication and welcomed us warmly with many great suggestions. The kitchen is well-stocked, and there are a number of small shops nearby for supplies. Public transit is nearby, too, with the train station just downhill. Being so central really helped us maximize our short time in Lisbon. Highly recommended!

This apartment is a real gem in the heart of Alfama. Paula's welcome was exceptional with lots of information and tips on what to do. We loved the apartment which has been lovingly restored and is a very comfortable space (lots of stairs!) and in a quiet area with practically no traffic. The apartment was very well equipped with tea/coffee, fruit and a nice bottle of wine. We had a late check-out too which was very much appreciated. We would throughly recommend this apartment for a perfect stay in Lisbon. Thanks Paula!

Just as described! Perfectly decorated and equipped for 4 persons. Thanks for the warm and smiling welcome. The booklet with tips/tings to do was very useful! We loved the surroundings of the flat - Alfama has a lot of small shops & restaurants, (we enjoyed the Fado-songs!) - and there is easy access to transportation near the Tejo. We give our best recommendations.

Paula was a fantastic host. She greeted us with a welcome pack of food and drinks which was much appreciated after our long day's travelling. Paula had prepared a file full of useful information about the main attractions, bus and tram routes which was really useful. The house was perfect, exceptionally clean and ideal for the four of us. Would definitely recommend it. Home from home.

Appartamento carinissimo nel caratteristico quartiere di Alfama. La localozzazione è perfetta per girare a piedi tra le viuzze e sentire l’atmosfera portoghese. Vicinissima anche ai treni, autobus e metro e al centro città. Eravamo un gruppo di sei amiche e la dislocazione su tre piani è stata ideale; letti davvero comodi, cucina piccola ma perfettamente attrezzata. Paula ci ha fatto trovare tutto per la colazione, è stata gentilissima, puntuale e d’aiuto con molte dritte sulla città. Bagni molto belli e confortevoli. Di notte capita che si sentano rumori e vociare dato il quartiere pieno di ristoranti e bar (URL HIDDEN) se mai mi capiterà di tornare a Lisbona tornerei di volata in questo appartamento. Grazie Paula!

Brilliant apartment! Great location! It's a modern, great flat with super comfortable beds. The attention to detail is lovely, and the wine and food provided is a kind welcome gesture. Worth noting the stairs are very steep and it has 2 staircases. I would definitely recommend! Thanks for having us!

Ein sehr hübsches kleines Häuschen mitten in Alfama, die Fotos halten, was sie versprechen! Alles ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet mit Liebe zum Detail. Paula ist sehr gastfreundlich, stets erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit. Es erwartete uns Wein und kleine Wilkommenssnacks und Paula hatte gute Restauranttipps. Wir haben es Freunden bereis weiterempfohlen

Paulas apartment is located close to the train/ metro station Santa Apolónia. The apartment is quiet at all; there was noise neither from the other apartments nor from the street / neighbours etc. The apartment looked exactly like you see it on the pictures and even better! It is almost in perfect and new condition! We stayed with 4 buddies and thanks to 2 bathrooms/ 3 toilets/ 3 possibilities to sleep we never had stress to get ready for the day/night etc. It is equipped also with some extras like a capsule coffee machine etc. Paula helped us out with everything and she is a very pleasant person. The checkin and the checkout hours were superflexible! We appreciate this much! Most of all I would highly recommend her apartment!

Paula´s host offer everything what you can just imagine to have during your stay in here. Its enough room for at least 4 person. Two separate bedrooms with privat bathrooms + a toilet in the middle floor. Everything is brand new, so you can feel like in high standard hotel. Communication with Paula was excellent , we have found all information what we have been looking for. Vine with the snacks waited for us with fully supplied kitchen, even in the fridge cold beer was waiting for us :) During our stay Paula was in touch with us, so we could enjoy fully our stay in the heart of Alfama -- best location ever :))
