The space

Do you like to mix the old with the new? So you have to check my apartment.

The apartment is in the traditional and fashionable Lapa neighborhood, in downtown Lisbon, in an early 1800's building.

It was completely renovated and refurnished by me, a designer, a few years ago.

I decided to keep the original rooms distribution but giving it a new twist. As you will see its 40sqm (430 square feet) were really well organized, so it makes the most of the space.

The bedroom its the most original area of the house:
Turn of the century apartments in Lisbon had really small bedrooms that fits one single bed a small wardrobe. So instead of having a small bedroom with a small bed I decided to make the entire bedroom a bed! It has a large king size mattress for 2 that occupies the whole room and it mounted in a stage set 1meter from the floor.
But dont worry, you wont feel claustrophobic because the ceiling is at a very confortable 1,50m (5feet) from the bed.

The bottom part of the stage is for storage, with drawers and lots of space perfect to keep your baggage. Check out the photos to get a better idea.

The living room has sofa-bed (were two more persons can sleep) and a large closet. Next to the living room there is also a nice office space with a desk, chair and library shelfs.

It has a nice bathroom (with tub) and fully equipped kitchen.

Guest access

Guest will have access to WIFI Internet access (closed network), cable TV with DVR as well as to all of the apartments utilities.

Interaction with guests

I will be there to greet the guest during check in, to explain all the house rules and functioning, to provide traveling tips in the city and to answer all of the guest questions.
I am also always reachable by phone or email during all the guests stay.

The neighborhood

Lapa is a very safe neighbourhood near the Lapa Hotel, International Embassies (Luxemburg, Bulgaria, China) and the Museu de Arte Antiga (Ancient Art Museum).

As for nightlife, the apartment is just a 5/10 minutes walk from the Santos Design District were there are a lot of bars and clubs. Its also a 15/20 minutes walk from Bairro Alto and Chiado.

Getting around

The apartment is near transportation like Bus and the traditional Lisbon electric tram. The train station to Cascais and Estoril beaches is just a 5/10 minutes walk away.

Other things to note

Me, as a host in Portugal, am obliged by law (and will be fined if I do not do) to ask all non-portuguese guests need to provide the following informations:

- Birthdate
- Nationality;
- City and Country of Birth;
- City and Country of Home Address;

This information will be, as demanded by law, sent to the Portuguese Border Patrol (SEF).

Thank you for understanding.

Ricardo's apartment is great and perfect for a stay in Lisbon. The cafe at the end of the road does amazing brunch and Le Chat (which features in a tonne of guide books) is a five minute walk. The place was clean and had everything you need However the most positive thing would be Ricardo himself- communication was excellent and he made everything very easy

Good location within easy walking distance of several museums, cafes, local markets, and shopping. Don't miss La Boulangerie just down the street for wonderful croissants and breakfast items. Ricardo is a thoughtful host, always reachable, who does his best to make sure your visit is memorable. We especially appreciated the reliable WiFi connection for work, and the well-stocked kitchen. It was perfect for bringing back goodies from the local markets and making meals. The space is on the small-side, so it is best for no more than two people. Also, the street can be a bit noisy, particularly now with construction work on some new apartments.
