We were in Lisbon for a 4 night break first week of June, our flight didn't arrive until after midnight but Vitaliano was fine with meeting us at the apartment so late. Very helpful, left us a lovely welcome drink too. The apartment itself is great, even better than expected, really nicely furnished and equipped with everything we needed. Shower was good and powerful which is always a bonus.
We thought the location was great, 5 minute walk to a metro stop to get all over town. There was a cafe, pharmacy and grocery shop just down the road and if you leave through the car park there is a really nice restaurant right nearby. And with the area not being very touristy we found it was cheaper than other areas in town.
It is a residential area, good for getting a quiet nights sleep (apart from there was a dog howling itself to sleep outside the window a couple of times!) but if you fancy a few drinks definitely head to Barrio Alto, only a couple of stops on the metro and around 5 Euros back in a taxi. (We just told taxis to drop us off at Santa Apolonia station as it was easier, cheaper and enjoyed the 5 min walk from there to wind down.
Never felt unsafe walking around the area at night either.
Overall great stay, have already passed on details to friends!

The apartment is very well equiped and it's just a short walk from the Graça's sightseing spot and the 28 Tram. IT's close to the subway and the hosts are very nice and helpfull.
