Bruno was a wonderful host. A welcome bottle of wine and pastels. Rather than just leaving tourist brochures and information on the table, Bruno sat down with us for a half hour and told us where we should go, where we should not go, and how to get there. The apartment was clean and has a unique layout. Located on the top floor of an older building in Alcantara district. Very comfortable for two persons. A fully equipped kitchen had all the plates and cooking utensils you might need to do most of your cooking in the apartment if you chose. We didn't use the washing machine, but it is there if you needed to do some laundry before the next leg of your journey. Some basic supplies for cooking, including onions, garlic and cooking oils. The bathroom was stocked with basic necessities. The apartment is not air conditioned, but windows and opening skylights allowed for good airflow and decent cooling. There is a neat little patio off the kitchen where you can enjoy your morning coffee or an evening glass of wine. There is a food store within a 5 minute walk. Try the Resina Restaurant at the end of the block (less than 5 minute walk) if you want to eat in a truly local Portuguese restaurant. Good Portuguese food at a reasonable price. There are other decent restaurants in the LX factory (10 minute walk). A city tram runs past the end of the block. Less than a 10 minute tram ride will take you out to Belem. 15 minutes on the tram in the opposite direction will take you to the middle of downtown. Buy a daily pass at the local paper store. You should be aware that the apartment is on the top floor of the building and you have to negotiate 4 flights stairs to access the apartment. That may be a problem if you have mobility issues. Good value and a decent place to stay. You will like your host. Your host lives in the apartment across the hall and is readily available to deal with any questions. He even booked a taxi to airport for us and helped us both up the stairs when we checked in and down the stairs when we checked out.

Bruno has a wonderful space and is very hospitable. The apartment is fully furnished with every amenity you could want, has a very cool style to it, and the balcony has a great view. The location is great, not far from many new and hip as well as historic and natural sights. Bruno is very helpful in getting you the most out of your stay and is a very nice person. Highly recommended!

Bruno is a perfect host : his place is awesome, Bruno was really reactive. He left us transport cards, maps and guides about lisbonne and he gave us many local addresses and recommendations to spend a nice moment. He was also very flexible and easy going. His place is really cosy and the location is perfect (between Belém area and the old city). I recommend Bruno and his place +++++ !

Our stay in the Cork House was fabulous. The location was great - a few minutes walk from the train station and close to buses and trams. We spent a lot of time in the apartment and enjoying the wonderful terrace, as well as the surrounding areas such as the LX Factory. Bruno had some great tips for our stay, and even booked a taxi for us to take us back to the airport at the end of our stay.

I totally liked this place, it makes you feel welcome and home right away. The location is perfect to explore or just enjoy Lissabon.
