Experience with the host was excellent. Host coordinated our arrival well and was at the apartment when we arrived. The apartment was exactly as described (interior was clean and modern interior), and was very well furnished with all the items that’s desired for a short term stay. The host does offer additional services such as meeting guests at the airport, tour guides, etc. (We elected not to use these services.) Apartment is located in the Alfama district close to the river. It is easy to access by private car, taxi or public transport, as compared to residences located on the narrow winding streets further up the hill. Major tourist attractions are within walking distance. Many restaurants nearby.
