Description
Description

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.

Clean and tidy apartment, a small minus would be that it is because of poorly insulated door is heard very much from the stairwell, but on the other hand, there are not many others who live in the building. If you don't mind walking around, the location is perfect, in the older part of Lisbon. The host was very nice and helpful, we would definitely recommend this apartment.

Schönes Appartement an guter Lage. Freundlicher Empfang und zuverlässige
Taxireservation am frühen Morgen der Abreise.
Verbesserungen wären bei der Küchenausrüstung nötig. Auch fehlen
Garderobehaken wo man Kleider aufhängen kann.
Ansonsten ist die Wohnung sehr empfehlenswert.

Prime location - Bairro Alto (3B)

Schöne Wohnung; super Lage; etwas laut in der Nacht, da die zentral im Ausgeh-Viertel gelegen, deshalb für Partygänger sicher super geeignet; alles vorhanden, etwas kleine Zimmer und kleines Bad (v.a. Dusche ziemlich eng); Vermieterin hat uns sehr weitergeholfen (wo, was, usw.). Vielen Dank!!

Hello Margaride

The apartement was brilliant - rustic and cosy.. and situated in a nice area. We loved the coolness on the very hot days. The beds were good as well.
We could have wished a little more equipment in the kitchen - but we managed fine nevertheless.

Fine apartment for 3 persons.

We hebben genoten van dit prachtige appartement. Het is mooi, netjes en nieuw. Een koele ruimte in een leuke wijk Bairro Alto. Gezellige cafe/restaurantjes in de buurt waar je voor een paar euro heerlijk een flink stuk vlees of vis kunt eten.
Het appartement is een echte aanrader, de tram 28 en een supermarkt om de hoek. bedankt voor het fijne verblijf. Henk en Wilma

Your relaxing and cozy Lisbon Apt.

Ha sido un fin de semana delicioso!!!... Lisboa una belleza absoluta y el apartamento limpio, bien ubicado, bonito, nuevo, confortable, .....la relación calidad / precio fantástica. Lo malo: se celebraba una verbena en la pared de al lado y hasta las 3 de la mañana con orquesta y fiesta como si estuvieran dentro del apartamento.... terrible. Y aunque considero que no puedo culpar ni a windu ni al apartamento, podrían habernos avisado de este inconveniente porque no hemos podido dormir. También tengo que decir que la tercera y última noche, ya sin verbena, hemos descansado como bebés: un apartamento en todo el centro de Lisboa y sin embargo absolutamente tranquilo. Seguro que volveremos!!!.... preguntando antes su calendario de fiestas, jejejeje.

Comfortable Studio in Hip Cool Area

Nice, clean and modern flat in between tiny roads not far away from Bairro Alto (when you know the right way, its less than 10 min to walk...). A Metro station as well as a supermarket are only a 10 minutes walk away. But sadly we couldn`t get any information about the location of the supermarket or any nearby helpful shops at the keyexchange from the responsible person.
Nevertheless the flat is equipped with many usefull things like hairdryer, hot iron, TV and free WIFI and it is located in a relatively quiet area of lisbon. The flat is in the second floor without elevator. The kitchen provides most of the needed cooking tools like pans, knives etc., but unfortunately we had to buy salt, oil vinegar and all the basic ingredients for cooking. There was no dish soap or cloth for cleaning the dishes or a regular soap in the bathroom. This was the only critics we have, thats why we give 4 out of 5 stars. Apart from that the flat is excellent.

Very friendly contact and easy communication in english with the contact person per email or message.

This is definitively a nice way to stay in Lisbon for a couple of days and a good chance to explore the city. thanks, alex and annette
