unpleasant experience! rude service! dirty room
that was the worst hotel experience i ever had.My family and i arrived at check in time 2.00pm and found our apartment open(it was self check-in so we proceed directly to the room) with cleaning people inside, that probably just started because every room was dirty and messy(check pics)with ikea bags in the front. to my question why room still not ready cleaning lady responded that she was busy with other rooms and said to leave luggage in the apartment and leave for an hour. I kinda find such service upappropriate, first of all i didn't feel safe to leave my luggage in the open room, second of all i arrived with my grandma who needed a rest before she starts exploring a city, we calculated our arrival time the way she can rest first. furthermore, I left to pick up rest of the luggage and when i came back i found cleaning lady cleaning other rooms, she just dropped cleaning ours thinking i left and prioritized her activity towards other room , although i was very specific about how fast we need it ready. i called their support number where i was advised to send email, what i did. however they never stress themselves to reply back. also few tips if you still decide to stay in this hotel after reading my review keep in mind if you travel with lots of luggage and they provide you with upper floor that can be hard to get it up as there are no elevator and stairs are very steep, electricity in the room go on and off, not enough light overall. the only thing i liked is view

Exceptional 10.0
Good location in the old town great character
Nice apartments. We were on second floor which is fine but on a few of the nights the people above were heavy footed on the wooden floors, fa little annoying when trying to get to sleep. 10-15 walk to the city centre so close to city life. We preferred Alfama plenty of small bars and restaurants, getting lost in the narrow streets and alleys was fun and the steps and walking up sloping roads kept us fit. Get the yellow bus tickets for sightseeing which allows a river trip, trams, buses and venicular. A great way to see a lovely city. Belem is worth a visit, as is Cascais beach resort if you have time - 40 minute train journey from city. There is a great restaurant and bar called Corkscrew in Alfama, the owner has at a hundred varieties of wine and advises the best Portuguese wine to have with your meal. He also plays Jazz a change from the Fado music played in the restaurants. Lots of really good buskers around, grab a beer or wine and watch them perform whilst soaking up the sunshine with amazing views. Watch out for those trying to sell jewellery in these areas, they have a clever scam of trying to give you 'free' bangles or necklaces, putting them on unsuspecting tourists, then asking them for money because the tourists had accepted the jewellery, we refused to accept anything from them but they can be persistence. Just be firm. The Portuguese tarts are amazing if you have a sweet tooth and there was plenty of fresh and tasty food particularly if you like fish

Not a place for us.
The apartment was clean, I think newly renovated, no manual or information booklet on the apartment or places of interest, thankfully the housekeeper was there when we arrived and she answered our questions. We did not like no personal contact with owner, just a code to enter. We had a bad experience with our cab driver, green & black coloured cab, he dropped us off, way down by the cruise ships and told us to walk to our apartment with our heavy suitcases and backpacks, and we had no idea where to go, he laughed at us and left, we are both seniors. Thankfully a restaurant worker pointed to the direction to go, all steep incline with many stairs. A lovely couple exploring the area, from one of the cruise ships, came to our aid and helped us with our bags. When we finally found our place a black & green cab went right by our door, so it was upsetting that our cab driver treated us badly. The stairs to the apartment are very steep, so for seniors, I would not consider this place. The area was questionable, police around the block almost everyday dealing with situations, across the road someone’s personal belongings flung all over the place, we think they were tossed out from an apartment. Kitchen had enough supplies to cook with, clean organized cupboards, no hooks in bathroom for towels, suitcases had to be left on floor, hangers available. Bed and pillows clean but very uncomfortable for sleeping. Decor stark, TV channels terrible, we would not stay here again.

**Beware Restricted Vehicle Access**
This apartment is in the residential district of Alfama, so unless you have been to this area before book with caution! Only very few taxis are able to access this area and not many of the drivers know their way around so you will have to get by on your own, this wouldn't be too bad but even Google Maps struggled to navigate around the area... also the steep streets and towering stairs give your legs a really good workout so I wouldn't say this area is suitable for anyone with a mobility problem. The No.28 tram is at the top of a road nearby though so you can give your legs a rest if needed, just be very careful of pickpockets, we got a purse stolen by a lovely looking old man with a coat over his arm and we didn't realise till we were off the tram! This is a self serve Apt and overall was good, however, I specifically requested bedding for the sofa bed in my booking and there was none provided, Portugal Ways didn't answer the phone either for us to request some. Overall for the price the apartment was great and very clean with good facilities, like staying in a little Ikea show flat, until the last night when the biggest cockroach we had ever seen made it's way in, if you are squeamish, again book with caution, we had to catch it under a fruit bowl as nothing else we had was big enough!!

좁은골목에 있는건 알았지만 집앞주차되는거 말안해줘서 멀리주차하고 짐끌고 유모차끌고 진심 개고생해서 왔는데 뷰는커녕 앞집창문 마주보고ㅋㅋ 층간소음 완전 심한정도가아니라 위에서 뭐하는지 숨쉬는소리까지 들림. 첫날은 남편이 자다가 윗집에서 걸어다니는 소리가 우리집에서 들리는거로 착각할정도로 커서 누가집에들어왔는지 알고 놀래서 못자고 둘째셋째날은 윗집에서 정신병자인지 자기 잠들때까지 방을 구석찍는듯이 빙글빙글 돌아서 쿵쿵삐그덕 소리 나고 그 사람이 우리 방으로 갑자기 진심 영화처럼 훅하고 떨어질거같아 무서웠고 남편이 올라간다고 할까봐 진심 겁낫음 그러다 잠드는데 자는 숨소리들림. 그거하는 소리는 그냥 온집에 다들리고 집이 흔들리는데 얼른 밖에나옴ㅋㅋ화장실 휴지 식당에서 주는 티슈임ㅋㅋㅋ 똥딱는데 웃음이 나옴ㅋㅋ진심 좋은게 체크인아웃따로안하고 자유로운거 하나인데 그냥 다음엔 다른데 묵겠음 Not for family and very very noisy. You can all hear what your upstairs doing. Was nightmares. Even i could heard breathing sound. My husband and my self we couldn't sleep during we stayed. It was very scared cause the floor makes sound very much so make you feel like someone else's in your room.. that was terrible. Room was clean and basic. thats all.. oh and the toilet paper was joke..
