A superb host with accommodation to match

Review Submitted: 2018-05-31 17:55
A superb host with accommodation to match. The lift from the airport is a really great touch as it saves a lot of stress and it gives you the chance to gain all the top tips from Paulo. The apartment is very central, in walking distance from everything and exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely be re-booking when we visit Lisbon again in the future.

I wish I could give Paulo more than 5 stars! Everything about our stay was great. The apartment is in a lovely location close to the nicest places in Lisbon. When we arrived everything was clean. Paulo is a great host: he picked my mother up from the airport and has lots of information on the best things to do in Lisbon. Everything he suggested was great.

The perfect place to stay in Lisboa!

Review Submitted: 2018-04-30 18:11
My friend and I really enjoyed our stay in Paulo‘s apartment. He is a great host. He was so kind to pick us up and gave us great advices what to see and explore. The apartment is located almost in the Bairro Alto and it was actually not noisy at night, even if we stayed in Lisboa over the weekend. The Chiado and Cais do Sodré metro stations are quite close, as well as the Time Out market (one of my favorite in Lisboa). Rossio is also close. It’s actually the perfect place to stay in Lisboa!

Attractive, conveniently located apartment

Review Submitted: 2018-03-12 12:09
This apartment is ideally located in one of Lisbon's most charming and unique quarter - Bica. The apartment is exactly as depicted with everything a guest might need for an enjoyable holiday. Furthermore, it is ideally situated close to the city centre, numerous restaurants and clubs.
Having previously rented apartments in other cities, we were amazed by Paulo, the owner of the apartment, who was by far the most attentive host. He picked us up at the airport, gave us a tour of the city, inspired us with his enthusiasm for all things Portuguese, and was available at all times to answer questions, make recommendations and to replenish any supplies we may need.

A wonderful stay in a wonderful city

Review Submitted: 2018-03-05 22:29
My stay in Lisboa was just perfect because of Paulo's hospitality. Paulo is a very nice goodhumored person, who went the extra mile to make my stay as comfortable as possible. He picked me up from the airport (!!!), showed me around a little bit and had a lot of information and great tips to make the most of my holiday.
The appartment is located perfectly: secluded and (mostly) very quiet at night, although very near to a huge variety of restaurants, cafe´s and a vivid nightlife. Most attractions of Lisboa are within walking distance, in addition trams and the metro are only a few minutes away. The flat is very cozy and well equipped with everything you could ask for (even dishwasher, washing machine and dryer!).
All in all a wonderful stay in a wonderful city! Highly recommended!

Great Location

Review Submitted: 2017-11-17 23:46
Great location just a few minutes walk from the main bar / restaurant areas (in a side-street half way down a pretty steep hill though- but in Lisbon, that can't really be avoided, and there's steps as well). 5-10 minute walk to the train station and a tram stop even closer. There was a bit of noise at times but nothing major and not too late- again, in Lisbon, that's to be expected near the livelier areas. There are shops close by to get any provisions and a small gift shop next door which also sells water. The flat is on ground level and has a living area leading on to the (fairly small) double bedroom with tv and wifi, then a very well equipped kitchen area with table through the back (with a lot provided, eg washing machine tablets etc). Clean shower room with excellent shower. Quirky décor throughout the flat made it a pleasant place to be, although we were out most of the time. Paolo was a friendly host, picking us up from the train station on arrival. He was communicative throughout and offered handy tips on things to do and see prior to our arrival.

Un très bon plan!

Review Submitted: 2017-10-12 22:02
Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre petit appart à Bica, confortable, bien équipé, entièrement rénové, bonne literie, petite salle de bain fonctionnelle, idéal pour un couple, et dans un quartier ancien pittoresque,où vivent encore des "locaux" même s'il y a beaucoup de touristes, un quartier animé et bon enfant.
Situé à cinq minutes du fabuleux mercado da Ribeira (Time out market), à deux pas du miradouro de Santa Catarina, où on peut boire un verre en terrasse en regardant le coucher de soleil sur le Tage!
Nous avons apprécié que Paulo vienne nous prendre à l'aéroport ainsi que tous ses bons conseils. Le seul bémol est que la maison est ancienne, on entend un peu les bruits du voisinage (bruits d'eau, passants en goguette le soir), mais comme on est bien fatigué après une journée a monter et descendre les rues de Lisbonne,on dort bien quand même!

Excellent apartment, fabulous location, perfect host

Review Submitted: 2017-10-12 22:02
Paolo was incredibly helpful from the moment we booked the flat. He sent a huge list of his favorite restaurants, tips for vising the beautiful monuments in Lisbon, and made arrangements to pick us up at the airport. The flat is charming and right in the middle of old Lisbon--it's close to restaurants, shopping, the metro (Cais do Sodré and Baixa-Chiado stations are only 5-10 minutes away), and many of Lisbon's best sites. We loved the Time Out Market, which is a short (and beautiful) five minute walk from the flat.

Thanks, Paolo!

Merci Paulo, grâce à votre accueil chaleureux et à vos conseils, nous avons passé un séjour agréable. L'appartement est neuf, propre, bien équipé. Il est bien placé dans un quartier historique et animé. Paulo est venu nous chercher à l'aéroport et nous a expliqué sa ville, son histoire, son pays. Ses conseils sont à suivre (restaurants, visites, lieux,...).
Dans le quartier, pensez à regarder partout, derrière une petite porte, il peut y avoir une agréable surprise.

Paulo's the ultimate host!

Review Submitted: 2017-05-19 18:53
Our visit to Lisbon was divided in two phases, in each we were Paulo’s guests. Both apartments were small sweet, impeccably clean and well equipped. Both were in parts of the old city (Bica and the Alfama), giving us walks, shopping and good places to eat. Paulo's enthusiasm, love of his city and knowledge of its culture really heightened our experience. Paulo’s special places became our special places. If you are lucky enough to stay with Paulo, you will never forget it! We love you Paulo!

Acostumbrado como estoy por mi trabajo a viajar intensamente, miro y remiro cuando planifico mis lugares de descanso. En este caso concreto puedo garantizar que este apartamento es tal como se anuncia un "bonito apartamento en la Lisboa histórica" perfecto para una pareja, nuevo, limpio, decorado con estilo y cercano a todos los lugares de interés. El precio estuvo muy bien (estuvimos en este pasado mes de mayo del 2016) y lo mejor su dueño, Paolo, una persona que sabe como tratar a sus clientes, atento y dispuesto para lo que necesites. A este hombre su negocio de apartamentos le va y le irá bien porque sabe trabajarlo y sobre todo sigue su máxima que es: "...trato a la gente que viaja como me gustaría que me trataran a mi ..." y eso querido Paolo hará que no te falte gente que elija tus servicios y apartamentos. Volveremos sin ninguna duda.

Met at the airport by Paulo, friendly and fantastic knowledge of Lisbon, arrived at apartment which was spotlessly clean and very very nice, well laid out with all modern conveniences. lovely comfy bed, powerful shower, international tv channels and all comforts of home. apartment is 1/4 mile from centre with loads of sites to visit and great for the shopaholic. Do try the local drinks and food especially the Pastel de Natalie, yummy. If you want that convenient place to stay in Lisbon this is the place.

This is a compact but well equipped apartment ideally situated, with transport and attractions within a few minutes walk. Not for those with difficulty walking: Lisbon's steep slopes are all around.But the views and access make it worthwhile. Paulo's advice on restaurants and trips is very helpful.

Our apartment is in the historic and picturesque neighborhood of Bica, one of the city's most traditional neighborhoods, known for its small bars and especially for the iconic funicular that runs through it. Adored by Lisboners and constantly photographed by tourists, the funicular has been going up and down the hill since 1892.

The tiny neighborhood, found between the Bairro Alto and Cais do Sodré districts, is made up of cobbled lanes and stairways, dating back to 1597, after a landslide. The land belonged to an influential Jew with ties to our King João II, and was first inhabited by fishermen and fishwives. The name comes from a 17th-century water fountain ("bica"), although there are still several in the area, that belonged to Duarte Belo, a local merchant. The fountains were popular meeting places, filling the neighborhood with life.

Bica offers a beautiful view of the river, and maintains the colorful 17th- and 18th-century buildings, many always with open doors, flower-filled balconies and laundry out to dry.

Going up the hill, in less than 5mn walking, are the neighbourhoods of Bairro Alto (simultaneously old-fashioned and avant-garde, a shabby-chic neighborhood that really needs no name, it's simply the "bairro", the neighborhood where everything happens at night) and Chiado (the elegant and trendiest neighborhood where most of the buildings are from the 1700s, side-by-side with theaters, charming old bookshops and a lot of shops of major international brands). Both absolutly unmissable

Welcome to Bica.
