This beautiful apartment is situated 5 minutes walking distance from Bairro Alto and 10 minutes from Tagus River.It consists of two bedrooms, both with a comfortable double bed. The living room has a television led, a sofa and a dining table for when you want to make your meals at home.

The kitchen besides being typically decorated with Portuguese tiles is equipped with all the equipment you need to feel at home. The bathroom is also decorated with the typical Portuguese tiles, is spacious and comfortable and equipped with towels (face and body) and hair dryer. This apartment is also equipped with Wi-Fi Internet.

The apartment is in a typical Portuguese street, between lively Bairro Alto and Lapa/Estrela in the neighborhood of São Bento. The Grand São Bento Palace it’s so pretty that even the Prime Minister lives next door! Also enjoy the "Estrela Basilica" or the botanical gardens just at front.

There is a supermarket, plus several restaurants and bars within a 5-minute walk. São Bento is less than 15 minutes walking distance from Cais do Sodré Train Station. The Metro there provides access to central Lisbon in 10 minutes. Lisbon International Airport is 8 km away.

If you walk 5 minutes you're ub "Bairro Alto", known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. At night, this 17th century colorful district is transformed into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. The main streets and narrow passageways are bustling with activity of dozens of excellent traditional restaurants, «fado singing houses», cafés, and a multitude of sleek clubs and bars that stay open until late. In recent years, «Bairro Alto» is also an alternative shopping destination, for those looking for trendy design shops, art galleries and bookshops.

There are several buses and trams, and subway, 5 minutes away, although one can easily walk to the main points of the city.Two minutes walking is the heart of the glamorous and cosmopolitan city can still be felt in the Chiado, a place where the "new" and "old" live in harmony. Characterized by casual-chic atmosphere, with streets full of shops, fine restaurants, beautiful cobblestone, beautiful churches and timeless cafes, Chiado makes any visitor feel real Lisbon.

Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Was open in 1905 and it´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the sidewalk you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.

Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to see.

Luís de Camões square, which any "lisboeta" will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has. But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.

This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).

It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.

Cozy Sunny Duplex in Bairro Alto

La estancia en el apartamento fue perfecta por la limpieza y buena situación de este.
Según llegamos nos explico los lugares de interés cercanos al apartamento.
El apartamento se encontraba muy céntrico , a unos 3 minutos a pie de una de las plazas mas bonitas de la ciudad, y a 1 minuto del mirador, en una de las mejores zonas de Lisboa.
A el apartamento no le faltaba ni un detalle, mucha luz, ambiente juvenil, y muy moderno.
Se encuentra en una zona tranquila, con un buen ambiente.
En nuestra opinión, tanto el apartamento como la atención recibida fueron excelentes.
Sin duda repetiremos.

Living in the heart of Lisbon!

Idéalement situé dans le Bairro Alto, ce petit appartement est parfait pour partir à pied à la découverte de Lisbonne et son lot d'escaliers et ruelles étroites. Très simple d'accès à votre arrivée à l'aéroport, un seul changement en métro est nécessaire pour arriver à la station Baixa-Chiado où vous serez à moins de 10' à pied de votre lieu de séjour. Le pittoresque tram 28 ainsi que le funiculaire de Bica sont encore plus proches !
Nous avons été très bien accueillies par Margarida qui nous a laissé un plan de la ville et donné quelques explications utiles pour notre séjour.
Seul point négatif dû à la situation centrale de l'appartement, les fins de soirées peuvent apporter certaines nuisances sonores...

Homey Historic Downtown Apartment

Very amazing apartment, clean, spacious and very very close to the city centre. Sara, the host, was really nice and gave us a lot of information about the main turistic places and some good restaurants. I definitely recommend this apartment!

Brand new flat - 1E

Me and my girls from Germany stayed in this apartement 5 days in March. We can say the place was great. Its directly next to the Cois do Sodré Central Station, maybe a 10 min walk. From there off you can arrive every part of Lisbon to see all their Seightseeing places. The boats to the other site of Lisbon are also next to it. Our host was a young and very friendly girl, that was waiting for us in the apartement untill we arrived. Everything was just easy and the place was very clean. You get your own towels and clean bed linen. The house is restored. The only noise factor was the little restaurant among the apartement and on the weekends you have to expect young students outside, that make party in the bars along the street. But thats only on the weekends. All in all we had a great time there and no problems. We liked the place a lot .

Prime location - Bairro Alto (3B)

Die Lage ist super, die Wohnung selbst ist sehr hellhörig und kleiner, als es auf den Bildern aussieht. Die Ausstattung der Küche ist miserabel, für vier Leute zu kochen ist aufgrund mangelnden Geschirrs und Bestecks fast unmöglich. Empfehlenswert wäre wenigstens die Bereitstellung einer Kaffeemaschine; es gab nur ein Espressokännchen für eine Person.

Die Wohnung war wie beschrieben. Sehr netter Empfang vor Ort (Joana). Probleme mit Internet wurden sofort erledigt. Super Lage der Wohnung, die 28 Haltestelle liegt um die Ecke. Auch einen Supermarkt liegt um die Ecke. Das große Bett ist sehr bequem, die Wohnung ist für 2 Personen empfehlenswert, für 4 ist die ausziehbare Couch nicht zu empfehlen. Die Wohnung ist sehr ruhig.
Immer wieder gerne!!
