Very convenient location - almost all areas of interest are walkable. Carla and her friend also showed me some amazing restaurants, bars and sights that most tourist guides ignore. Would highly recommend this to any travelers in Lisbon

Prima appartement in een gezellige buurt! Het appartement is leuk ingericht en netjes onderhouden. Voor alles is gezorgd, van paraplu's tot zelfs handige en leuke tips voor Lissabon. Ook de uitleg over het huisje, de buurt en Lissabon was goed verzorgd door de vriend van Carla. Ik zou hier zeker nog een keerje terug kunnen komen! Bedankt Carla!

If you want a lovely stay in Lisboa, start here ;). The apartment is located in a characteristic and lively neigbourhood and has lots of good restaurants and bars nearby. The apartment is clean, spacious, nicely decorated and has all the amenities you'll need for a short stay (including maps, guides and tips from Carla). We also liked the written messages throughout the house ;P. We didn't meet Carla in person but her friend Adriano was really helpful and provided us with the things to do and places to see list. Luckily Carla was very flexible with our check-in and check-out times as no other guests were leaving/arriving on those days. Your hospitality and made us feel very welcomed and at home. Muito obrigada Carla!

L'appartement de Carla est bien situé, dans le coeur de Lisbonne à proximité des incontournables. Le quartier est très vivant et offre nombre de bars et de restaurants très sympas et animés le soir. Carla est très soucieuse du confort de ses visiteurs et je la remercie pour son accueil et l’aménagement très agréable de son appartement. Ce fut un très bon séjour à Lisbonne!

It was AMAZING!!! The apartment is great, clean and in a perfect spot of Lisbon! Carla and her friend gave us a lot of useful information (regarding restaurants, bars and sightseeing). We had a lot to see and got lost in the beauty of Lisbon. It certainly was a great experience and a beautiful holiday. Useless to say: I have to come back! :) Thank you, Carla!


Response from Carla:

You are AWESOME guests! True airbnb spirit! It was my pleasure to welcome you!


Carla's flat is located in a very nice part of the city close to a lot of beautiful places a visitor if Lisboa should see. Carla and her friend where really nice hosts, with a lot of tips to make our stay perfect. The flat is clean an nicely furnitured, it has everything you would need, even if you want to cook your own meal. Thank you Carla, we really enjoyed our first time in Lisboa.

Response from Carla:

Thank you so much! You are absolutely recommended guests! :D



The apartment was wonderful, exactly as seen in the pictures. The location is very central and we had good access to the city center and attractions. Staying in Bairro Alto is highly recommended for students and young people, as there are parties on the street every night! Carla was a great host, always available and the portable wi-go was a great idea (as we didn't have internet). We loved Lisboa and the apartment!


Response from Carla:

Thank you so much Ophir! It was great having you stay at my apartment!



Great location. Carla took care of us from the time we landed in her apartment till the time we left. Just follow her suggestions as to what to see and do in Lisbon. We enjoyed our brief stay in the apartment and look forward to visiting again.


Response from Carla:

Thank you so much! Next time the Pastel de Nata is on me!! :D



Carla was a fantastic host, very helpful, friendly and alive. The apartment was very cosy and the area couldn't be better.


Response from Carla:

Thank you! Your happiness is my kryptonite! :D



Had an incredible time! Perfect location and wonderful host


Response from Carla:

Thank you Jonathan! You are wonderful guests!


Daniel And Carla Dawn

Carla gave us a wonderfully detailed overview of Lisbon. The charming apartment is ln the middle of many interesting spots. We enjoyed our stay at her place very much.


Response from Carla:

Thank you!! I loved to welcome you and tell you about my nr 1 city!! :D Wish you a wonderful stay in Portugal You are AWESOME guests!


Lovely apartment in a great location. It was a shame we didn't meet Carla, but she left lots of helpful tips for us. Also I thought the guest book with tips from other people was a great idea! Thanks you :)


Response from Carla:

Thank you Drea!! Although we didn't have the chance to meet, it was a great pleasure hosting you!!



Merci Carla pour ce séjour! L'appartement est très mignon et super bien situé. Aux alentours se trouvent pleins de restos et bar! Nous avons passé un très bon séjour, nous reviendrons


Response from Carla:

Merci Karen! C'etait notre plaisir!



Très bon séjour d' une semaine à Lisbonne , l' appartement était charmant très bien équipé ( de guide , et de tout le nécessaire) et correspondait exactement aux photos . Très bien situé. Un très bon accueil de Carla qui nous a mis tous de suite dans le bain et la ferveur de lisbonne en nous donnons des conseils fort utiles. Seul bémol, l ' appartement étant situé dans le quartier " festif " le bruit y était constant tout les soirs et surtout le weekend , et ce de 20h00 à 5h00 du matin .. Cris de jeune voisins qui vienne faire la fête, bruit de musique venant des bars !! Y trouver le sommeil était dure , prévoir des boules quies . En résumé un très bon appartement , mais malheureusement bruyant pour qui veut passer un weekend en plein cœur de lisbonne . Carla a été une très bonne hôte . Nous la remercions.


Response from Carla:

Merci beaucoup! C'était un plaisir faire votre connaissance!



L'appartement est fonctionnel, conforme à sa description et surtout très bien placé dans un quartier vivant, plein de commerces, restaurants et bars. Même si nous n'avons pas rencontré Carla en personne, elle nous a laissé des plans, guides et conseils de sorties à Lisbonne qui nous ont bien aidés! Merci beaucoup!


Response from Carla:

Merci beaucoup! C'était un plaisir faire votre connaissance!



A Carla é super prestativa e a casa é impecável! Recomendo!



The place in Bairro alto is really convenient. The service offered by the owner with delivery of the keys and amenities such as towels, soap, etc. The apartment is clean and big enough. Just a bad point is for the bathroom that could be renovated and rearranged especially regarding the toilet. I recommend you for an holiday trip to rent this appartment



Carla was so lovely and welcoming and really made us feel at home in Lisbon. The apartment is lovely and in a great location, I will definitely stay again next time I'm in Lisbon.


Response from Carla:

Thank you Jessica! You are awesome!!


Carla was a helpful host! She left us useful information about the city and was available for our questions when needed. The apartment was clean and perfectly located.



I did not meet Carla in person during my stay but she was very nice and welcoming through our text and email exchanges. The listing was described accurately but I was not prepare for the steep and narrow staircase leading to the apartment on the second floor. Staircase is a little challenging if you have a large suitcase and not much wiggle room. Other than that I had an awesome stay :) The neighborhood was very lively during the later part of the evening and into the night. The best way I can describe the neighborhood on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, was like bourbon street in new orleans. The apartment is on the edge of the lively area. I was just amazed at the amount of people walking around and socializing. It can get pretty loud in this area. The apartment has noise reducing windows and they work really well. Lots of little cool places to shop. I felt safe walking around the neighborhood during the day and night time.



We hadden een geweldige week in Carla´s stijlvolle appartementje,midden in de Bairro Alto,niet ver van Principe Real.Op loopafstand bevinden zich talloze (goede) restaurants en gezellige barretjes.Het appartement was superschoon en ruim, met goed werkend snel internet,en overal lag informatie met leuke tips over Lissabon.Slaapkamer lag aan de straatkant,maar nooit was het straatgeluid hinderlijk.Onze afwijkende in-en outchecktijden waren geen probleem. Carla zelf hebben we niet ontmoet,maar onze communicatie verliep vlekkeloos. Muito obrigado,Carla,we hope to be back soon in your beautiful city!!!



Carla made sure we feel at home from the moment we entered the apartment. She did a splendid job in recommending ways to enjoy our stay in Lisbon, including tips for local transport, sight seeing, recommending places to visit in the neighborhood (including a printed map), and even provided us with a mobile internet hotspot! The apartment itself is perfect for a couple, has everything we needed, very clean and cozy, and is located in a great lively neighborhood, while still being on a small quiet alley. Also one of the best "Miradouros" in town is around the corner.


Une personne était présente pour remettre les clés à l'heure convenue. Rue calme, mais plusieurs bars tout proches ouverts tard dans la nuit, donc bruyants. Logement très propre. Carla est venue sur notre demande pour un dysfonctionnement d'un appareil ménager. Elle est très agréable et donnant facilement des indications sur la ville.



Great apartment in the old town - best suited for 1 person. Street reasonably quiet even though it was a festival weekend. Plenty restaurants very close. Steep stairs up to the first floor. 10 minutes walk from the tube - uphill but the views from the nearby mirador were great. Carla very helpful when advice needed.



Dear Carla, what a warm and hospitable reception we got from you, when we met you at your apartment! You gave us extensive advice how to have perfect days in Lisbon, and our time was way too short to do everything you recommended. WiFi was perfect - which is not granted in Portuguese lodgings, where WiFi often works only in the house but not inside the room. Your clean, airy and nice apartment is extraordinarily well located, in a cosy old lane right next to the nightlife district, and most of the city centre can easily be reached by walking. On the other hand the nocturnal noise from the bar across the street can prevent you from falling asleep before three o’clock in the morning, even if you use earplugs. Anyway, we had a wonderful time – thank you very much!


We had a wonderful experience! Carla was extremely welcoming and the apartment was beautiful, clean and perfect for a couple. We really enjoyed the neighborhood and made use of all of the maps and guidebooks Carla left for us. The apartment was in a perfect location and we were able to walk to a variety of restaurants, bars and landmarks. It was also very easy to get to both train stations! We really appreciated that Carla took the time to meet us at her apartment to give us a tour and describe the guidebooks and resources she has available at her apartment.



We really enjoyed our stay at this lodging. Nice Situated, aestheticly and pleasantly furnished. With a renter who really cares for you. Here you can relax from the tours of the day. We would choose this lodging again.



We never met Carla but she had arranged for someone to check us in on our arrival. The apartment was really beautiful, and the location is great right in the centre of the bar district. Within a few minutes walk of bars and restaurants. Would definitely stay here again if ever back in Lisbon. A brilliant air B and B experience.


We had a great time staying in Carla's apartment in Lisbon. She greeted us with lots of enthusiasm and genuinely loves her city and quite clearly knows it inside out - we didn't have time to take all her advice but everything we did do was 100% right! A great apartment in a fun, lively location; and Carla's advice on what to do in Lisbon was VERY useful. Highly recommended!



SUPER, nous vous le recommandons 1000 fois : - La localisation : appart idéalement placé dans le Barrio Alto. À proximité de tout. Un quartier très très charmant avec beaucoup de restos délicieux, de la vie dans les rues, à deux pas d'un belvédère avec une vue imprenable sur le château, des transports en communs... Bref que du bonheur. - L'appartement : très sympa, typique de Lisbonne avec sa façade, on s'y sent vite comme chez soi. On y dort bien, on a tellement aimé qu'on y a petit-déjeuné quelques fois. Tout le confort est là. Hyper propre, très bien équipé. Un petit cocon de bonheur. - L'accueil : nous avons eu la chance d'être accueillis par Carla qui est une hôte 5 étoiles !! Elle nous a donné pleins de conseils sur ce qu'il y avait à faire dans le quartier. Notre rencontre avec Carla a largement contribué à nous faire passer un SUPER week-end de 4 jours à Lisbonne. Merci Mille fois ! Obrigada ! Au final, ce sont ces expériences qui vous font aimer voire adorer AirBNB. Bravo à notre hôte et surtout MERCI ! Laurent & Hanah



very nice place in the heart of lisboa. the good suggestion from carla let us discover nice restaurants and places.



Un appartement très bien situé, et conforme à la description....Nous n'avons pas rencontré Carla personnellement, mais deux personnes étaient présentes pour notre arrivée, et nous ont fait visiter les lieux....


This is a great apartment located in the city of Lisbon. The rest of the city is literally on your doorstep and you can easily spend hours strolling around the amazing streets of Lisbon. There are a number of great restaurants literally seconds from the house not to mention great wine bars, and all kinds of bars to grab a refreshing drink after a long day exploring the City. Carla's apartment is exactly how is looks in the pictures. It is beautiful and has everything you need. Carla has a great collection of hints and tips to make sure you thoroughly enjoy your stay.



L’atout principal de l’appartement de Carla est son emplacement ! Le quartier a beaucoup de charme et il est très pratique pour partir à la découverte de la ville. ( à pied, tramway, elevateurs… même la gare pour partir à Sintra à 2mn) Nous n’avons pas été accueillis par Carla mais par une personne charmante . Nous avons découvert un joli appartement bien équipé, des petites attentions comme à l’hôtel et partout des petits mots pour donner des modes d ‘emploi et des consignes . . Si bien que nous nous sommes sentis très à l’aise rapidement . et nous n’avons pas perdu de temps à tout chercher . Une grande penderie et des tiroirs nous ont permis de bien ranger nos affaires . Notre séjour chez Carla a donc été des plus agréables. . Nous ne pensions pas avoir le temps de découvrir tant de Lisbonne en 3 jours et finalement grâce à toutes les infos de Carla et la facilité de se se déplacer à partir du Miradouro tout proche qui va beaucoup nous manquer ! ( Nous y restions matin et soir un petit moment par pur plaisir et nous y avons pris notre dernier petit déjeuner ) .



Carla was an amazing host and so attentive. Would always stay in her cozy apartment again, best location in Lisbon!!



The advertiser Carla was super attentive: we mentioned one of our birthdays only once in an older conversation, but when we entered the apartment we were welcomed by a nice flower with congratulations card. Nice and cozy apartment, with a good bed. A bit annoying is the lack of shower holder, so if you are used to take a shower while standing straight up; good luck. The neighborhood is very silent during the day, but there are good restaurants on a 5 minute walk that suddenly become visible when the sun sets and the shutters are opened. At the end of the street are a number of (student)bars, apparently because it is the Erasmus corner of international students. Interesting to see :) It is a good idea to bring your earplugs if you are a light sleeper. It is a good spot as a base to explore the city.



We spend 3 wunderfull days in Lisbon. Carla is a very nice host, she made us feel very wellcome and gave us a lot of usefull recomendations. The location of the appartement is very good, walking distance to the center and to the waterfront, though it's quite at night. The appartment is perfect for a couple. Thank you, Carla!



We had a really great time in this flat. It's located in the old part of the city amidst a lot of possibilities to eat and to drink. The flat itself is nice, charming, clean and functional. And Carla, the owner, is very helpful and gives many recommendations. We would like to come back anytime!



The 2 of us spend 3 nights in this cosy and tidy flat in the centre of the Bairro Alto. Perfect as a starting point to discover Lisabon. Equipped with various travel guides and other tipps for restaurants etc. Very caring und friendly host, no problems with late check-in and out. Thanks!


Carla was one of the best Airbnb hosts we've ever had! Her passion and knowledge about Lisbon is contagious. She gave great advice, tips and suggestions, and this affected our trip in a very positive way. The location is very central in Bairro Alto, close to many bars, restaurants and beautiful views.



A very nice place to get back at when you had a long day in Lissabon. Felt like a home. Clean and nice place in a great area. I brought earplugs for the weekend and used them. Very nice kitchen and bed.



This place is as advertised. The location is perfect and is close to everything!!!!! You can really walk to all the major attractions, or take public transportation if you like. This place is at the edge of the bar district. Quite in the immediate area, but literally 2 mins to the best bars and night scene. The apartment is clean and is as pictured! There are guides, maps, and also a little book where guest have written tips for a great visit. I cannot recommend this place enough.


Nous n'avons pas rencontré notre hotesse qui a délégué l'accueil à une de ces amis. Le logement est fonctionnel, et très bien placé pour visiter Lisbonne, facilement accessible à partir des transports en commun. Malheureusement, la musique du bar africain voisin de 50 mètres jusqu'à 4 heures du matin nous a convaincu de quitter le logement dès la première nuit. A éviter donc si vous êtes sensibles au bruit ! Nous sommes très étonnés qu'aucun commentaire n'ai souligné cette nuisance... peut-être celle-ci est-elle récente ?! Nous avons regretté aussi que le chauffage au gaz ne fonctionne pas (faute de gaz; la recharge étant vide), et nous oblige à nous rabattre sur un petit radiateur électrique soufflant d'appoint pour ne pas grelotter...



Nous avons été réceptionné par une amie de Carla, qui nous a parfaitement accueillie et nous a fait visiter l'appartement, qui est propre et fonctionnel. Carla met à disposition de ses hôtes de nombreux guides et bons plans. Nous les avons en partie testé, et les validons (les pasteis de Belem = une tuerie !) Si vous aimez faire la fête, ce quartier est fait pour vous ! Ambiance assurée dès la tombée de la nuit ! On s'y sent assez vite "comme à la maison" ! C'est très central, ce qui évite trop de déplacements en transport en commun et favorise ainsi la découverte de la ville.



The Carla's welcoming was really really good, with a few attentions, clean flat and a lot of books and stuff to discover the great city of Lisboa :) We have made the trip with our little baby and everything was set to make us confortable (baby's bath & bed, towels...).



The flat was lovely and it is a brilliant neighbourhood to stay in - we love Lisbon.

Carla is, by definition, a problem-solver. Add that to a warm and friendly personality and a thorough knowledge of the city and you get a perfect mix. Need a suggestion where to go, find a less known corner of Lisboa or just a different place to eat? Just ask her and you're done. Got into some snag during your stay? Call her and you're out enjoying the sun in no time. What else could someone want? She is "The" host for our city.

I've known Carla for more than 10 years now. She's smart, friendly and very commited. She knows Lisbon like the palm of her hand and is always willing to help other people discover this amazing city. As a host you can't find any better!


Stonehenge Stonehenge If you're looking for a guided tour, by the hand of someone who's in love with Lisbon, ask Carla to guide you! She's doing it since several years ago (she's a couchsurfer) and is very familiar with the scenic spots, history and culture of Lisbon, and I know she'll be happy to give you advice and suggestion for your trip. And.... if you need a shopping assistant , she can perform that job very well... Specially if you're onto clothes & shoes and souvenirs. She likes shopping, and will help you to find the best deals for everything you want to buy. (Include restaurants here, she also knows the best and with best prices :) This is also valid for city public transportation tickets& plane tickets, she always knows where to find the bargains! She is not a professional tourist guide, but she knows how to help you with your visit in Lisbon

If you´re thinking in staying at Carla´s flat, you couldn't´t have chosen better... She is an amazing girl that knows the city as the palm of her hands and is very experienced on helping and accommodating new travellers... Since her days of couch surfing =D She´s very nice, intelligent, incredibly funny and one of the most kind persons i have the pleasure of knowing. Her flat is in the centre of the old part of town, so you can walk to many beautiful places without ever needing transportation. I can assure you will not be disappointed at any way, and the most likely is leaving Lisbon with the feeling you should stayed a little bit more time...
