About this listing
At the heart of Lisbon's most vibrant neighbourhood - Bairro Alto - you will be able to enjoy the cosmopolitan face of this beautiful and hip city, while you will be embedded in a time travel through tradition and heritage, all on walking distance.
Discover Lisbon from this spacious and sunny apartment in the traditional and popular Bairro Alto neighbourhood.
On the 4th floor of a charming hundred year old building it offers all the commodities in the city's best location, surrounded by many touristic attractions and with the best transport facilities, providing an easy access to Sintra and Cascais or the beaches in the neighboring coast lines. The epicenter of fun!
Down the street you get to Largo Camoes and Chiado, there you have access to the subway and the traditional trams, or you can enjoy charming cafes, sunny esplanades and the central shopping streets that extend to Rua Augusta in a pleasant walk.
The riverside at Cais do Sodre or Praça do Comercio (one of the most iconic squares in the city facing the river) is a short 15 minutes away on foot.
The traditional Trams at Bica or Gloria, viewpoints like Sao Pedro de Alcantara or Santa Catarina, Principe Real square, the Botanical Garden and Natural History Museum, the main theater D. Maria II at Rossio, the opera S. Carlos and the modern art Museum in Chiado are within a 10 minutes reach, walking through cheerful streets and amazing sights.
Right at the door step you can find Fado houses, typical restaurants, small designer and artist's shops and the main nightlife spots (that won't bother your sleep as you close the window).
All is close, and you can view the river from our balconies so you can also enjoy the great light filling the comfortable living room and relax.
IDEAL FOR ONE PERSON OR A YOUNG COUPLE:
The apartment features a living room with TV, the main bedroom with a queen size bed, a second room that can also accommodate guests in a bed sofa or be used as a dinning area, a bathroom with bathtub and a big window, and a kitchen/eating area fully equipped. All bed linen and towels are provided.
The first and most important house rule is that our guests should feel at home and regard the apartment as theirs.
To fully appreciate the apartment don't hesitate to ask me any questions. I always try to provide the maximum comfort to my guests and I wish them to feel as I do when I'm enjoying my home.
I provide all towells and linen.
The kitchen is equiped with everything we feel needed to cook, bake and enjoy a nice meal. There is no microwave hoven (we don't like them....).
A few basic rules:
. it is important to lock the apartment door whenever you leave, it is not a dangerous area but it feels nice to be safe
. I always open the windows in the morning, it is great to fill the apartment with warm sun and fresh air. But if you are returning in the night it is better to close the windows before dark to keep the warm inside
. After a shower, it's great to open the bathroom windows to let the humid air out
. When you finish your holidays and leave the apartment, I appreciate that the rubbish is taken to the green bin at the buildings door
It is ok to smoke in the apartment but preferrably not in the bedroom. There's several windows and 2 living rooms where you can enjoy a cigarrete.
The best experience is to return home knowing that my guests had a great time in my city and enjoyed staying in my apartment. Welcome and thanks!!
Very good host, very professional reception and easy going. We recommend anyone to sty in Marisa's place.
Marisas place was great. The area, the apartment, the communication. Especially the bathroom. Top notch. Thanks!
Staying at Marisa's place was exactly what we were looking for. The flat is very clean, well equipped and very sunny. Marisa's friend was waiting for us to show us the flat. In addition Marisa can be easily contacted if needed.
The top plus of her place is its location in Lisbon. Staying at Bairro Alto was really great. The flat is at the 4th floor which was great to limit the noise from the street which get really busy at night. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to enjoy the city
Nous sommes ravis de notre séjour à Lisbonne. Marisa a été très gentille et arrangeante. Nous ne nous sommes pas rencontrés car elle était à Londres mais la communication par e-mails s'est très bien passée. Nous avons fait de belles découvertes grâce à ses conseils -merci encore !- et son ami sur place a été très sympathique et accueillant.
L'appartement est très bien situé (dans un quartier central et animé), spacieux, agréable et très propre. Nous y reviendrons avec grand plaisir !
We had a great Time in lisboa. Marisa was very welcoming. She waited for us by the tram And gave us useful information about the neighbourhood. The appartment was as pictured, clean And so well located ! Perfect !
Marisa is a super host, and I never met her! She was in England during our trip, so her friend welcomed us! The appartment of Marisa is very well located, clean, and very friendly. The access is very easy with public transport. Marisa was very attentive to our stay in her appartment, I received serveral messages from her during my trip in Lisbon. I really recommand her place.
A stylish and spacious apt with a superb location - walking distance to many of the Lisbon's coolest bars, restaurants and other attractions. Marisa is a great host, very friendly and easygoing, all communication and arrangements were simple and straightforward. The place was fully equipment with everything needed for comfortable, stress-free stay. Perfect!
About the Host, Marisa
Lately I've been traveling so I cannot really enjoy my great apartment. Although I loved living in Berlin for a time, and now London, I can't help missing Lisboa. Lisboa is the city in my heart, the most beautiful and vibrant. It is my pleasure to show my city to my friends and guests, and to make them love Lisboa as much as I do.
And, of course, to show the food and the wine, some of the best in the world.
The best reward of being an Airbnb host is getting to know so many interesting and lovely people and feeling that warmth left behind in my apartment by the great experiences of my guests. I make it my aim to provide the best stay to my guests and I am very happy when I get that feedback. Be my guest, feel right at home.
