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.

Homey Historic Downtown Apartment

The location of the apartment in Alfama, close to the Se cathedral and city center is perfect. All Lisbon regions (Alfama,Baixa, Bairro alto and Chiado) are at walking distance. In case you want to go there by public transportation you'll find tram (28E and others) and bus stop just around the corner and the metro station Terreira do Paco is at a 5 minutes walk. There's a supermarket "Pingo Doce" at approx. 10 minutes walking distance.

The sober decorated apartment has a kitchen, 2 small bedrooms, a very small living room and a bathroom.

We had to clean part of the kitchen and do the dishes before use.The kitchen gear is very basic and partly incomplete. When we arrived we found only 3 glasses (this was resolved after a call to the host). There's no electric coffee machine. Besides a dustpan with a short broom, there are no other (floor) cleaning tools like a vacuum cleaner, normal sized broom etc. So it's hard to keep it clean when you're there for more than 2 days.

The double bed in one of the bedrooms measures only 184 x 128, which is not a normal double sized bed and doesn't fit taller people. This should be mentioned on the website.
The absence of a shelf with bed light at one side of the bed in both rooms, which were there in the past according to the holes in the wall (and pictures on the website) indicate a lack of maintenance as did the broken dustbin, not functioning lock on the bathroom door, no light in the refrigerator etc.

I would not recommend this apartment for more than 4 persons.

Overall, we did enjoyed our stay and the host was very friendly, but based on the reviews, I got a slightly different impression of the apartment. With this review I want to compensate for that. I think it's quite easy to make it a more attractive apartment with only minor investments. Please do.

We got to Lisbon after staying in Porto for a few days.
We had a great time despite the terrible weather but we won't be back soon.

Filipe met us at the apartment and showed us around. He told us where we could find a super market and a few grocery stores, then he recommended a nice bar to hang out in the evening, which we enjoyed alot and won't give away it's name online. It's an amazing bar and until now free of drooling drunk tourists unlike so many other places.. lol

He didn't want to go through "the map" and give tons of recommendations and instead offered to be "available" around the clock for us to write/call him if we were interested in a place and wouldn't know if and how we should go there.
We were fine with that and he answered on our first request pretty quickly, not so much when we contacted him on the second day (for a restaurant-recommendation) and didn't receive any answer for the rest of our stay in Lisbon.. In that case, we'd prefer a map with some marks of recommendations instead of empty words.

The apartment's location is absolutely perfect, few minutes of walking to Bairro Alto (bars and restaurants, nightlife-hotspot) and still pretty calm at night. The apartment looks great at first glance, lots of space and great ambiance.

We only gave 4 stars, because it was dirty!

We had to clean some of the kitchen before we found it save to use any of it and also had to do the dishes before using them - however, we didn't clean out the cupboards which would've taken forever and definitely needs to be done asap.
The floor was sticky so that we couldn't bare walking around in socks (only bringing in more dirt I guess) and the bedsheets had some ugly stains on them.
The bathroom was okay, but the toilet paper sits on the floor and the toilet brush is standing in a deep puddle of god-knows-how-old toilet water (I didn't dare to clean that one!).
The shower head is leaky and spills water all around and it's holder sits loosely on the wall..

this might not be much reason to criticize for many as I know lots of people who live in such "conditions" and seem perfectly fine with that.
For me it's just unacceptable to not get a place cleaned up before offering it to someone.

Wonderful and Stylish Studio

A part la porte d'entrée qui est un non-sens d'isolation phonique, thermique et sécuritaire, vous donnant l'impression que chaque entrant dans l'immeuble pénètre également dans votre studio (surtout à 2h du matin),le charme "Ikea de bon goût" et la situation de cet appart sont très appréciables. De petits détails pratiques sont à disposer comme des porte-savons dans la salle de bain, un balai ou encore l'entretien des plaques de cuisson avec un produit adapté.

Your relaxing and cozy Lisbon Apt.

Wohnung gut geeignet für 5 Personen, gute Lage (allerdings steiler Abstieg), viele kleine/sehr preiswerte/einfache/qualitativ gute Restaurants in unmittelbarer Nähe, ebenso kleiner Supermarkt. Wohnung war gut ausgestattet, durch Kaffemaschine und Teekanne könnte Ausstattung noch verbessert werden. Schlüsselübergabe klappte problemlos, freundlicher Empfang mit einigen Tipps zu Lissabon. Kleines Manko: Nicht alle Räume waren perfekt gereinigt. Doch insgesamt: Sehr empfehlenswert!

Your relaxing and cozy Lisbon Apt.

Die Unterkunft war für unsere 5-köpfige Familie die ideale Unterkunft während dem Aufenthalt in Lissabon. Sie ist zentral gelegen und dennoch sehr ruhig. In wenigen Minuten erreicht man zu fuss Rossio, den Platz mit Haltestellen von Metro, verschiedenen Busslinien und des Aerobus. Gleich um die Ecke gibt es einen kleinen Laden, der alles für den täglichen Bedarf verkauft. Die Wohnung ist gut eingerichtet und sauber. Wir können diese Wohnung sehr empfehlen.

Wonderful and Stylish Studio

We really enjoyed our time in Lisbon. The studio was great and in a central location. Everything looked exactly like the pictures; you will not be disappointed.
We were nicely welcomed by Tiago who gave us tips and a map of the city which was a great help.
The tram is literally 10s away from the front door and it takes you to the best places in Lisbon.
I would recommend this place to anyone and would happily book it again.
It's a bit small for 3 people but just perfect for 2 people.

It's a bit noisy in the morning but you should not waste your time sleeping in Lisbon there is so much to discover!
