"The apartment is really nice, comfortable, has the same look as on published photos. Kitchen is very well equipped. Good location, close to the park with children's playground, 24/7 taxi service, funicular and beautiful view point. Mauro (the landlord) was friendly, very helpful, gave many useful information. 1. The furnace (boiler) is very bad quality- cannot manage to heat radiators and water at the same time. So if we wanted to have warm in the apartment there was no hot water (to shower, wash the dishes)and vice versa which is quite annoying if you have small children and if you stay at the apartment in the late fall as we did. Also the last evening the pipe for the hot water at the boiler broke and as we didn't notice it immediately the water was running down the building. Neighbours started to bang on the front door (also woke up the kids!) to turn it off... at the end they were nice and helped us to fix it until the morning. 2. The electricity is also bad and would need repair- at one point there were several lights turned on + cooker was working and the electricity went out- complete black out. We fixed the problem by ourselves as we immediately tought that this might be the problem. Once we turned on only few lights it was OK. 3. The first impression about the apartment and its character was lost once we noticed hair in the bath tub, on the tiles in the bathroom, toilet seat. The floor could be cleaner, the holder for spoons, knives and forks was really disgusting and I washed it immediatly (and from there on also all the dishes and utensils that we were using). Also cobwebs were hanging from the ceiling in the living room. 4. There are stairs leading towards the building were the apartment is located- we didn't know that and as we had a stroller it was quite a challenge to carry it every time we left the apartment... additionally to the stairs within the building (we knew that there was no lift in the building so that's OK). We wish they warned us about that as we might consider taking different apartment as there were a lot of stairs! (good exercise though:) 5. We couldn't find any bakery/grocery near by. Only one small food shop with few little things. Would be handy to have a grocery closer to the building..."
“Hi Jana, Thanks for your review! The boiler is fixed now and the owner double checked the cleaning to make sure that everything is perfect. The apartment is located in a historical building which means that there are indeed some instructions for using electricity. This will be explained during the check-in. We are happy that you liked the apartment and the location and we hope to see you again!”
"La decoración y la ubicación. Baño con lavabos muy pequeños y accesorios insuficientes, problemas con el desagüe de la ducha.El DVD no funcionaba. Muchas hormigas en la cocina y baños. El congelador del frigorifico inutilizable ya que estaba repleto de hielo."
"Sehr gute Lage, relativ kurze Wege zu den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln. Städtische Atmosphäre im besten Sinn. Authentische Stadtwohnung. Die Baustelle gegenüber (ab 6 bis 7 h Baulärm), dürfte aber zu Schulbeginn 2011 vorbei gewesen sein."
"La decoración Falta de limpieza, mucho polvo, cubo basura roto, ruedas muebles baño rotas, soporte papel higiénico roto, enchufe lampara noche roto, soporte mango ducha roto, no hay enchufe en un baño, falta de trapos cocina. Por lo tanto falta de mantenimiento del equipamiento del apartamento."
"The flat is conveniently located in the city in the barrio alto, within a walking distance to the chiado and city center. No bad surprises compared to the pictures, the flat is really nice, clean and well equiped. Welcome was very nice. Unfortunately there was some refurbishment work in the building that week which where already planned. We would have appreciated to be told before."
