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.

Your relaxing and cozy Lisbon Apt.

My friend and me absolutely loved the apartment. Both bathrooms and bedrooms were nice and spacy and equipped with all you need to feel comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, too, dishwasher and even a washing machine included. Just around the corner was a crocery shop that - although small - had everything from bread, fresh fruit/vegetables and other necessities. The apartment is only a 10 minute walk from the city center, metro station etc. Checkin and checkout worked very timely and smoothly, very nice person who met us at the apartment and booked us a taxi on our checkout day to get to the airport. So we were absolutely satisfied and did not see one thing to complain about. We would definitely book this apartment again on our next trip to Lisbon. Thank you very much - dear hosts.

Wonderful and Stylish Studio

Everything worked out great. The apartment was clean and nice and it is located in a quiet side street. Unfortunately, the terrace is surrounded by a high wall and therefore not very inviting but all in all, agrees the value for money.

Wonderful and Stylish Studio

Hübsche, gut eingerichtete und zentral gelegene Wohnung (nur wenige Schritte bis zur Straßenbahn E28 und bis zum Supermarkt). Auch die Altstadt ist (über einen kleineren Hügel zu Fuß erreichbar). Kleine, allerdings hoch ummauerte Terrasse. Ausblick leider auch nur auf die Mauer der Terrasse - das stört aber nicht, wenn man fast den ganzen Tag im wunderschönen Lissabon unterwegs ist. Wohnungsübernahme und -abgebe völlig unkompliziert. Sehr freundlicher Empfang und hilfreiche Tipps. Wenn´s nicht noch so viele andre interessante Orte gäbe, kämmen wir sicherlich sehr bald wieder!

Your relaxing and cozy Lisbon Apt.

The accommodation was basic (in decoration, etc.) but sufficient for us. Central location, enough beds, wifi, tv, 2 bathrooms. As advertised. (we missed a toaster and a coffee machine)

Communications with the host was good. But the handover of the key was a bit unlucky. We arrived in the evening 9 pm, and while on the phone everything was ok, the guy who brought the key was late. So we had to wait up to 30 minutes outside. Not a deal breaker, but a point for attention (don't let a family with kids wait 30 minutes in a, for them, completely unknown location:) ... I will deduct 1 full point for this.

So, I was going to give a 7/10 (8 for the basic, but as advertised, accommodation and 1 minus point for the key-handover) but I will give 1 full point extra because the people at the office really took good care of us the last day ...

... we had an evening flight (10 pm), but had to check out at 11 am (normal procedure). The people in the office offered the following solution for our luggage. We could store the luggage at their office until 7 pm, so we could enjoy another, near full, day in Lisbon. At 7 pm we picked up our luggage, and the office called a taxi for us. Top marks for that!

So, all in all, a great stay!

A well deserved 8/10

Santos - near the river 3º esq

rue très très bruyante car il y a un bar de nuit qui ouvre a 22h il y a donc des gens et de la musique a fond jusqu a 5h du matin
de plus le canapé sur lequel ns dormions était cassé sur un partie alors pour dormir pas bien du tout
et surtout vu le prix de la location ns ns attendions a beaucoup mieux
heureusement le seul point positif c'est que la dame qui ns a reçu était très souriante et tres sympathique

Spacious Graça Flat with River View

Die Wohnung war in Ordnung, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, auch wenn es keine 5-Sterne-Küche/Bad-Ausstattung gab, dafür aber gute Betten, insgesamt stimmte das Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis. Der Mitarbeiter von Margarida war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Die Wohnung würde ich für einen Lissabon-Aufenthalt ohne weiteres einem Bekannten empfehlen. Allerdings finde ich, dass der Vermittlungs-Aufschlag von Wimdu auf die Miete relativ hoch ist.

Luminous Central Apartment

Das Licht Central Apartment befindet sich nahe einer Metrostation, ca. 7 Minuten. In der Hauptstraße fanden wir ein Cafe das selbst am Sonntag offen hatte zum frühstücken, ebenfalls ein heimisches Lokal mit sehr gutem Fisch, weitere Lokale am Rossi..wir sind es zu Fuß gelaufen. (schon ca. 35 Min)
Zu bemängeln ist das Bad..in der Duschwanne ist ein eigenartiger Belag (Kunststoffbeschichtung?) der sich hochgeschoben hat, u da muss man draufsteigen..er löst sich teilweise, das geht einfach gar nicht. Das Bad habe ich erstmal geputzt, der Spiegel ist unten blind, der Handtuchhalter kam aus der Wand als wir das Handtuch aufhängen wollten. Neue Putzschwämme habe ich gekauft, die alten waren sehr alt..den Duschvorhang habe ich ebenfalls gereinigt, waren schwarze Schimmelspuren dran. Gekocht haben wir nicht. Die Betten waren i.o. Leider konnten wir die Haustüre mehrmals nicht aufschließen u es hat ca. 10 Minuten versuchen gedauert, bis sie sich dann öffnen ließ.
Die Dusche muss renoviert u das Haustürschloß erneuert bzw. repariert werden.
Die Übergabe bei der Ankunft war nett, auch die Tips für Ausflüge.
