Lisbon Apartment

Jump to last reply

I have read through several of the old topics on the subject here. I would appreciate any current suggestions on selection of agencies and apartments. Or on agencies NOT to use.

I am looking to rent an apartment for myself as a single senior traveller for four days in mid-June. I have already done a lot of searching through the incredibly large number of agencies covering Lisbon and built up a short-list.

I have some experience as I have rented apartments in the past in Menton, London, Paris and Buenos Aires. As well as the normal concerns of location and quality I am concerned about agency practices such as hidden cleaning fees, reaction to requests for maintenance or problem fixing, excessive breakage deposits etc.

My needs are:

Budget: cheap. Less than E50 per night.
Location: Historical area, probably Alfamo, Bairro Alto, Chiado or nearby.
Occupants: one senior male, non-smoker.
Size: studio or 1br with real double bed (not sofabed)
Essential: stove or hot hot-plate with utensils (I cook my own breakfasts, special diet) kettle, fridge, washing machine, internet (either wifi or ethernet).
Lift if on higher than two floors.
Close to tram or metro, not up or down countless steps.
A TV with some English channels would be nice, but not essential. So would air-conditioning (is that needed in mid-June?)
Preferably a quiet area. Definitely not near a night club or right beside the tram tracks.

I am looking for agency efficiency and honesty, comfort, cleanliness and function, not luxury.

All suggestions appreciated, TIA

Cheers, Alan
