Mafalda was a fantastic hostess - she was extremely responsive in her communication and went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and stress-free. We called her about two minor items that we needed and she came by personally to address them. She was available to us at all time over the phone and gave us very helpful tips and suggestions about things to do and places to visit. Mafalda's apartment is great - very spacious for a downtown apt and walking distance from the historical center,metros, market etc. It is very tastefully decorated and has a great, homely feel. She was very generous with the amenities and had even stocked the fridge with various breakfast items including cheese, breads, cold cuts, yoghurt, milk etc. She is a very warm and caring person and we really enjoyed our short stay at her apartment.

our host, mafalda, went above and beyond making our stay a very special one. our flight was delayed so our arrival was close to midnight, but we were nevertheless greeted by a gracious and welcoming host. the apartment is spacious, very clean, beautiful and has really great and personal atmosphere and everything you need to cook in the kitchen, lovely bathrooms, living room. we loved the little balconies where we would sit in the evening and enjoy a glass of wine (a gift from our host). the beds were very comfortable. aircondition in 2 of the rooms. and there's an elevator in the building! super central location. we found some great restaurants, wine bars and the wonderful food market, mercado da ribeira, close by. it's an area with a lot of night life, but since the apartment is on the third floor, you feel quite removed from it. it's actually very entertaining watching the life from the balconies and you feel the energy of this great city. i highly recommend a stay at mafaldas beautiful apartment in the heart of lisbon.

Mafalda nous a très bien accueilli vers minuit, avec toutes les petites courses que nous avions demandées, café, pains, boissons... L appartement est spacieux, propre, bien décoré,calme avec de bonnes isolations, bien situé moins de 10 min à pied pour le centre ville, avec commerces, restaurants, transports. Le sourire, l'accueil, et l aide apportée au tel pour les réservations des taxis à maintes reprises, c'eet vien mieux que pouvions espérer, meilleur qu'un hôtel. Nous tenons à la remercier pour tous ses efforts et aides, elle n'y était pas pas obligée. Aussi nous pouvons que recommander cet appartement. Nous nous sommes sentis comme à la maison, avec une amie en plus : )

Wonderfully home in the historical center, but away from all the noise! The apartment is very central, just 2 minutes away from the Cais de Sodre train station, making it easy to reach from the airport, but also Cascais and neighboring towns and beaches. All of the sights in the historical center are reachable on foot, or if you're lazy you'll appreciate the tram (including the 28!) and metro nearby. The river is also down the street, making it the perfect place for a stroll or a jog. There is a supermarket nearby (50 metres) for when you just want to stay in (the kitchen is new and fully furnished), although there are plenty of cafés and restaurants nearby. The flat also has an elevator for those who don't like too many stairs. The living room is spacious yet cozy, and although it is indeed a luxurious apartment in a classic building, you'll feel right at home! All the rooms were very clean (as a matter of fact, the cleaning lady was just finishing up when I arrived), with everything you might need readily available. To make it even better, staying at Mafalda's was like staying at a good friend's, making you feel at home right away and ready to give you all the tips from a local so as to make you feel comfortable! She is very hospitable and friendly - nothing less than what you'd expect from the Portuguese! Highly recommended!
