눇The apartment was lovely, clean, and spacious - more than spacious for a couple, really. We were on the first floor, with a view out towards the river (so on the opposite side from the tram line). With the doors open, and the bedroom windows open, we had no need for the air conditioning units. The location is very peaceful, with the tram being a slight murmur in the distance when it rattles past - I would imagine the apartments on the other side of the building are a bit noisier. Our apartment was equipped with just about everything we needed, making it easy for us to pick up some supplies from the mercados/Pingo Doce, and cook our own breakfast - breakfast is offered at 6 EUR/head, but we like to make our own. Transport and sightseeing - the location is great for the Alfama district, Castelo de St. Jorge, the National Pantheon, and a 10 minute walk from the Santa Apolónia metro/train station (blue line). This proximity to the station means it's a simple red line then blue line from the airport, but be warned that it's a stiff climb up the hills from the station (especially when towing luggage!). Cais de Sodré is a blue line then green line, connecting you to Cascais and southbound ferries. You can also take the blue line to Restuadores to pick up the train to Sintra from Rossio. Tram 28 runs past the front door of the building, connecting you to other parts of the city.

눇Location on historic and convenient tram line number 28, for most convenient sightseeing. Modern interior while keeping the original exterior on traditional narrow street. Good breakfast.
