Condo/Apartment
Lovely and cozy small one-bedroom apartment in the heart of Lisbon within St. George Castle walls, the most historical Lisbon neighbourhood. The apartment is at a private building from the 18th century, enviably located in the heart of the Castelo district, which is one of the oldest and most sought after areas of the city. Sitting high on the hill this neighbourhood benefits from fabulous views around every corner (although not from the apartment), cobbled streets and historic architecture. There are many local bars and restaurants nearby including the world famous Chapito with its stunning views and circus school, but the area is very quiet during the night. Come and feel the typical life of this old neighbourhood and enjoy an unique experience. The apartment is duly registered ...Lovely and cozy small one-bedroom apartment in the heart of Lisbon within St. George Castle walls, the most historical Lisbon neighbourhood.

The apartment is duly registered in the Tourism Authority of Portugal and respect Portuguese laws and regulations. Registry #31903/AL HOUSE RULES ARRIVAL We need to know your arrival time at least 2 days in advance. Standard check-in is after 15:00 and check-out is before 12:00. However we are flexible with check-in and check-out times, depending on previous or after bookings, so depending on your travel schedule, we’ll do our best to accommodate you. Early (before 07:00) or late (after 22:00) arrivals will have an extra charge of 25.00 euros. TELEVISION There is no TV in the apartment, we love a non-TV world but understand there’s a lot of people who don’t agree with this philosophy. However, try to enjoy your stay in a different way. Take advantage of these few days you're staying to explore out and relax in. We are sure you will find Lisbon very entertaining and have also a good collection of books available to read with background music. Really hope you won't even miss TV while here. CLEANING & MAINTENANCE: The apartment is cleaned prior to your arrival. On your departure the accommodation should be left in a reasonable condition but you don’t need to worry about cleaning: we’ll take care of it. If anything doesn’t work properly during your stay please let us know as soon as possible, and we’ll try to fix it quickly. We’ll phone you on your contact number if we need to access the apartment for any repairs or maintenance. CARE OF THE APARTMENT AND RESPONSIBILITIES We appreciate and trust you will treat the apartment and all of its equipment with care. The apartment is in a private building and we do have neighbours. As the apartment is not completely soundproof –everyone expects a low level of noise from neighbors– please be considerate of noise, particularly in the evenings and at night. Any kind of parties, high music or noises that could bother neighbours are not allowed. OTHER INFORMATION Please note that as per our guest suggestions we have redone all the WC this December, so we hope you'll have an improved experience in 2017! :-) We thank you for your recommendations!
