Amazing view over the river Tagus!
|Address||Calçada Santo Amaro, 1300 Lisboa, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
Attention! The proximity to the river makes it possible to hear some noise due to the traffic on the bridge. Some people sensitive to noise may find this fact unconfortable.
The building keeps its original facade and entrance and the apartment was completely refurbished, retaining the original design and the typical wooden floor. The decor is modern, with new and functional furniture, equipment and accessories.
It is located in the district of Alcântara, a typical Portuguese neighborhood, where you can find all types of services: restaurants (cheap or expensive), banks, groceries, supermarkets, pharmacies and transports (please see below). It is a safe neighborhood where you can enjoy the real life of the city of Lisbon.
This apartment is strategically located near the most beautiful attractions of Lisbon city: the Riverside, Belém and the City Center. The Riverside starts at "Docas", a beautiful marina (boat dock), which is only 500 meters away from the apartment. At "Docas" you can appreciate the unique view over the river and the "25 de Abril" bridge, while enjoying a drink, having lunch/dinner at one of the most prestige restaurants of Lisbon, or just having fun on one of the hottest night clubs and discos of the city. The Riverside continues for more than 10km, with bars, restaurants and beautiful promenades, until Cascais, where you can enjoy one of the most amazing beaches in Europe. The cultural and touristic center of Belém is only 1km away! You can walk to the noblest area for cultural attractions, such as Jerónimos Monastery, Belém Tower and the world famous pastry of Belém. The City Center, 15 minutes away by tram, offers you all the typical neighborhoods and cultural experiencies of Lisbon!
The bus and tram stop is just 50 meters distance from the apartment, making it very easy to access any point of the city. The ticket store is just at the end of the street (closed on weekends). The best way to come from the airport is to take a taxi, it should be around 15 mns and cost 15€. If you prefer public transports, you can take the aerobus or subway at the airport until the stop "Cais do Sodré". There, you can take tram/bus nº 15 or 714 until "Santo Amaro" stop. The street of the apartment is 30 metres ahead, at your right.
If you prefer a more confortable and quicker way to get to the apartment, pick-up service at the airport is available on demand, for 20 euros.

Reviews of this property
The flat is nice, well equipped and quite comfortable. All of the equipment we used worked fine. The view is really lovely. The city center can easily be reached by a short streetcar-ride. Check-in, unfortunately, did not go completely smooth: when we arrived, the appartment was not yet ready (It said check in from 2pm in the description and we announced our time of arrival (4pm) a week in advance). It was, however, possible to leave the luggage at the appartment and Pedro, who welcomed us, was very nice and showed us quickly where to eat, and what to visit, etc. in the neighbourhood. When we finally returned to the flat (after 6pm) it was very tidy and clean. We then enjoyed the rest of the stay wery much.
Apartment comfortable, clean and very well connected to the city.
The person who greeted us was very helpful nell'illustrarci both the operation of public transport and the resources of the area.
Appartamento confortevole, pulito e molto ben collegato con la città.
La persona che ci ha accolti è stata molto disponibile nell'illustrarci sia il funzionamento dei mezzi pubblici e sia le risorse della zona.
Smooth communication! received great, the apartment is clean and the view is fantastic, unfortunately the apartment in the summer heats quickly but the attic way it is. Due to the central location you can explore Lisbon very good! Regards Marc and Leocardia
Reibungslose Kommunikation! wurden super empfangen, das Appartement ist sauber und der Ausblick ist fantastisch leider heizt sich die Wohnung im Sommer schnell auf aber ist beim Dachgeschoss halt so. Durch die zentrale Lage kann man Lissabon sehr gut erkunden! Beste grüße Marc und Leocardia
We really enjoyed this property. delicious centrally located, despite not downtown. it is perhaps precisely the charm. Pedro, the man who received us was very helpful and speaks excellent English. There is great flexibility with respect arrive earlier. The apartment is well equipped with kitchen utensils, Free Wifi and a laptop that does require a special approach. Pedro was happy to help. An important aspect is that this apartment is only suitable for frail people. the shower entrance 2 sliding wandjes is in fact only 30cm wide (A viertje !!) we were even there sideways through while you immediately need to take a high step and you maneuver through the opening. This requires some skill because you're not at the doors of the shower can raise because there is not solid enough. (Haren) washing is therefore also a bit tricky because the shower itself is not large (50 x 50 cm). You shoot so quickly against the glass sliding walls. it is also the sloping walls (attic model) less suitable for tall people. The door lock opening this apartment requires some practice. Despite these issues, we have had an excellent stay and we will when we go back for a visit, again trying to book here. the apartment across from us in the hallway, which also has the same owner has a favorable location and higher. Whether the shower there too so small I do not know.
we hebben erg genoten van deze accommodatie. heerlijk centraal gelegen, ondanks niet in de binnenstad. dat is misschien wel juist de charme. Pedro de man die ons ontving, was zeer behulpzaam en spreekt prima Engels. Ook is er een grote flexibiliteit m.b.t. vroeger arriveren. het appartement is goed uitgerust met keukenspullen, Freewifi en een laptop die wel een speciale aanpak vraagt. Pedro is graag bereid te helpen. Een belangrijk aspect is wel dat dit appartement alleen geschikt is voor tengere mensen. de douche ingang van de 2 schuifwandjes is namelijk maar 30cm breed (A viertje!!) wij moesten er zelfs zijwaarts doorheen daarbij moet je meteen een hoge opstap nemen en je door de opening manoeuvreren. Dit vraagt enige behendigheid omdat je je niet aan de deuren van de douchecabine op kunt trekken want daar is het niet stevig genoeg voor. (Haren) wassen is daarom ook wat lastig want de doucheruimte zelf is ook niet ruim (50 x 50 cm). Je stoot dus gauw tegen de glazen schuifwanden. ook is het door de aflopende wanden (zolderkamermodel) minder geschikt voor lange mensen. Het deurslot openen van dit appartement vergt enige oefening. Ondanks deze zaken, hebben wij een prima verblijf gehad en zullen wij als we weer terug gaan voor een bezoek, wederom proberen om hier te boeken. het appartement tegenover ons op de gang, dat ook van dezelfde eigenaar is heeft een gunstigere ligging en is hoger. Of de douchecabine daar ook zo klein is weet ik niet.
We have felt very comfortable, cozy interior with nice details; Traffic noise from the bridge and arriving aircraft, but more impressive views of the Tagus and south of Lisbon; small, warm roof terrace; quiet house, nice neighbors, friendly welcome with short Neighborhood tour and tips; Unfortunately washing was not usable;
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, gemütliche Einrichtung mit netten Details; Verkehrslärm von der Brücke und ankommenden Flugzeugen, aber eindrucksvoller Blick auf Tejo und Südseite von Lissabon; kleine, warme Dachterasse; ruhiges Haus, nette Nachbarn, freundliche Begrüßung mit kurzem Stadtviertelrundgang und Tipps; Waschmaschine war leider nicht nutzbar;
John Tavares is the kindest, reliable and attentive kind imaginable. Indeed, it was a good choice. The apartment or studio is great for both long stays and for quick stays. Also has a good supply of attractions, public transportation and restaurants close at hand. Last, but not least, you have a beautiful view of the Tagus River and the bridge.
João Tavares é o tipo mais gentil, confiável e atencioso que se pode imaginar. Realmente, foi uma boa escolha. O apartamento ou estúdio é ótimo tanto para longas temporadas quanto para estadas rápidas. Além disso tem uma boa oferta de atrações, transporte público e restaurantes ao alcance da mão. Last, but not least, tem a linda vista do Tejo e da ponte.
The host João and his friend Pedro are very friendly and helpful, and we got many useful information on arrival at the apartment. E-mail correspondence with João was also really good and in a friendly tone. The apartment was as shown in the pictures on the website.
For future tenants and João, I will state that you must remember to put the plug in the drain in the shower when the water seal here does not work (otherwise drain smells of sewage, when not in use). We also saw that there ran a little rainwater through the roof / wall at the foot of the bed.
We missed a shower head holder so you do not have to hold the shower when bathing and possible. a new door lock in the property's front door (it is heavily worn).
The apartment is very authentic with a nice view from its two windows.
Værten João og hans ven Pedro er meget venlige og hjælpsomme, og vi fik mange nyttige informationer ved ankomsten til lejligheden. E-mail korrespondancen med João var også rigtig god og i en venlig tone. Lejligheden var som vist på billederne på hjemmesiden.
Til kommende lejere og João, vil jeg oplyse at man skal huske at sætte proppen i afløbet ved bruseren da vandlåsen her ikke virker (ellers lugter afløbet af kloak, når det ikke bruges). Vi oplevede også at der løb en smule regnvand ind gennem taget/vægen ved fodenden af sengen.
Vi savnede en bruseholder, så man ikke selv skal holde bruseren når man bader og evt. en ny dørlås i ejendommens gadedør(den er meget slidt).
Lejligheden er meget autentisk med en flot udsigt fra dens to vinduer.
Friendly neighborhood, between the historic center and Belem (district of Hieronymites monastery).
Apartment located close to the 25th of April Bridge (it's like in San Francisco!) Nicely appointed, with a small balcony to admire the view over the rooftops of the city and the Tagus, near. Buses and trams available there 20 m, restaurants and mini markets at 25m!
The reception given by Pedro, the day we arrived was very friendly and full (visit the area, tips for public transport, shops, ...).
Two minor drawbacks that may impede certain: the sound environment (lots of air passages and traffic on the bridge) and the 3 flights of stairs with no elevator. But in a typical old and charming building, the elevators are rare! And after a city break, no need lullabies to sleep!
In summary, we were delighted with our stay.
Thank you and Joao Pedro
Quartier sympathique, entre le centre historique et Belem (quartier du monastère de hiéronymites).
Appartement situé à deux pas du Pont du 25 avril (on se croirait à San Fransisco!) joliment aménagé, avec un petit balcon pour admirer la vue sur les toits de la ville et le Tage, tout proche. On y trouve les bus et trams à 20 m, les restaurants et supérettes à 25m!
L'accueil fait par Pedro, le jour de notre arrivée, fut très sympa et très complet (visite du quartier, conseils pour les transports en communs, commerces, ...).
Deux petits bémols qui pourraient en gêner certains: l'environnement sonore (beaucoup de passages d'avion et de circulation sur le pont) et les 3 étages à monter sans ascenseur. Mais dans un immeuble de charme ancien et typique, les ascenseurs sont plutôt rares! Et après les escapades en ville, pas besoin de berceuses pour s'endormir!
En résumé, nous avons été enchantés par notre séjour.
Merci à Pedro et Joâo
The nicest host and very good location. we stayed for 1 week and felt like we had an own apartement in lisboa for living. everything was perfect, we could call Joao in every time. GREAT !! Location was not far from citycentre :)
A pleasant stay, in a really charming flat. The view is amazing and Joao was perfect : nice, available and comprehensive. Sure we hear planes and trains from the appartement but it didn't bother us. It was really appreciable to have web connection inside, even if it wasn't working all the time. We highly recommend Joao as an host and his 2 lovely Lisbon flats, really well located, near transportations and in a quiet neighborhood.
