Prime location - Bairro Alto 1B
|Address||Travessa dos Inglesinhos, 1200 Lisbon, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
This is a modern and cozy apartment, full of character and light, set on the first floor (Drto) of an ancient typical Lisbon building in the trendy and vibrant Bairro Alto, known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. This apartment is part of a group of 7 apartments that we have in this building.
The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, a nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, ready to cook home made meals. Towels and linens at your disposal are included in the price and satelite Tv and wireless internet as well.
To set forth on a discovery of Lisbon, there is no better place to begin: the tram a few steps away, international brand shops at Chiado and the more daring fashions in Bairro Alto, where you also have the trendiest restaurants of Lisbon. Bica neighbourhood, close by, is becoming a night haven for artists and intellectuals. But this does not destroy the calm and charm of Rua das Chagas. For theatre and opera lovers there are three theatre houses at a five minute distance, S. Carlos, S. Luiz and Trindade Theatres.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café 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 Lisboner 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.
Walk the streets with care, the movement on the sidewalks is always heavy and the trams are constantly passing.

Reviews of this property
We had a great time in a very nice, clean and renovated apartment in a lively neighborhood. Everything we needed was in the apartment and we had good communication with Margarida. The only minor thing: the noise of the street at night. So if you are not used to that, make sure to have some earplugs with you.

This apartment has its charme!
We were 6 Persons and all of us were content with the apartment. It is beautifully furnished and the location is just perfect. I would recommend it to every one who wants to have a great time in Lisbon and enjoys night life. The apartment is not far from the streets that are full with bars. So for families with kids it can get loud at night but more because the walls are very thin and you can also hear every move from the room next door.
The check in was without any problems and we had a contact number for any questions. Pedro was very friendly and he introduced us with the help of a map to the important sight seeings and stations in Lisbon. That was very helpful.
All in all we enjoyed our stay!
The title says it all -- this is a cozy one bedroom in the heart of Lisbon, easily walkable to the metro and Barrio Alto nightlife, and steps from a great viewpoint overlooking the city. Super clean, great hosts. The neighborhood is lively, so expect some street noise, but I would definitely stay here again.
We stay in the apartment for five days and we pass very nice day.
The house is small but confortable and Ana Lisa is much helpful.
This apartment is very well positioned and has great views of the city, bridge and river. It is also well appointed. Our five night stay was delightful.
Am besten an der Metro-Haltestelle INTENDENTE aussteigen. Die Wohnung ist schwierig zu finden aber die Gastgeberin hat uns geholfen und ist uns entgegen gelaufen. Hat uns alles super auf dem Stadtplan erklärt. Für einen Kurztrip super, vor allem weil es sehr zentral liegt und mit der Metro bestens zu erreichen ist. Laut ist es draußen, aber wir sind in der Stadt, nicht in einem Dorf. Für Menschen die mit Lärm nicht zurecht kommen, sollten sich bitte was außerhalb suchen. Uns hat es nicht ausgemacht. Lieber eine belebte Stadt mit netten Menschen und toller Atmosphäre :) Möchte man früh morgens ein Taxi, wie bei uns, dann einfach auf die Hauptstraße runterlaufen. Es kommt auch um 6.30 Uhr was. Wir haben ca. 7 EUR gezahlt bis zum Flughafen. Also alles easy, no stress.
Wir waren 4 Tage in der Unterkunft. Einige Dinge sind zu reparieren, kaputtes Sofa, kaputter Waschmaschinenknopf, etc.
Aber die Wohnung ist zentral gelegen und gut für Partygänger. Schlaf ist zu finden ab 24h/2h. Davor, schwierig.
Unten im Haus ist eine Kneipe, gegenüber ist eine Disco und den ganzen Juni ist Stadtfest in Lissabon.
Wir waren mit der Familie da (Kinder 5 & 1 Jahr), die haben zum Glück einen guten Schlaf, wenn sie eingeschlafen sind.
Der Service durch Short Stay war top. Tipps für Unternehmungen und für den Notfall einen jederzeit kontakt. Toll.
Alles in allem eine gute Unterkunft für ein paar Nächte, aber Familien sollten auf andere Orte des Anbieters ausweichen.
Sehr schönes, kleines Appartement mit tollem Ausblick, wie beschrieben. Die Lage ist hervorragend, da man schnell überall ist bzw. hinkommt. Felipe hat uns sehr nett in Empfang genommen und uns hilfreiche Tipps gegeben. Sehr nett und unkompliziert und immer wieder gerne.
Die Unterkunft liegt sehr zentral und ist daher auch gut mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln zu erreichen. Die Wohnung ist hübsch, zwar im 4. Stock (ohne Lift) aber das ist kein Problem. Sie verfügt über einen kleinen Balkon mit Sicht auf den Fluss. Die Wohnung war sauber und hat keine Wünsche offen gelassen. Auch die Uebergabe der Wohnung hat super geklappt und wir haben auch zahlreiche Tipps für den Aufenthalt in Lissabon erhalten.
Quiet, clean and functional.
This small appartment on the fourth floor of an old building in the Alfama area of Lison is remarkably quiet. There's no elevator, so make sure you don't mind going up and down the stairs all the time.
The appartment was very clean and functional, without frills. The balcony is tiny and exactly fits the little table and two chairs shown on the photo - though all of them could do with a coat of paint... The balcony is also south-facing, without any parasol, so on warm or hot days can only be used in the early mornings and evenings.
The contact and hand-over with Short Stay was pleasant and efficient.
