Thank you Mariana for your feedback.
Yes, the apartment can get cold in winter (and a bit hot in summer), specially if the city is experiencing extreme unusual temperatures, as was the case in your visit.
About the meeting point and the house, there is other easiest access.
However, most of the guests travel with backpacks or hand luggage. Lisbon is a crossroad of small streets, and because of that, the Miradouro is a beautiful, easy, taxi drivers friendly place to meet.
However, you have a point :) I will add in the profile the suggestion, so that guests traveling with bigger suitcases warn me. This way we can anticipate and work things out. Thank you!
Over all, it's good that you've spent a good time in Lisbon (and under the hot covet :), and that my tips to warm the stomach worked ;)
Thank you again for the feedback!
Best wishes** Inês
