Romantic Apartment in the Old Town

Apartment - Entire home/apt · R. dos Douradores, Lisbon, Lisbon 1100, Portugal

The Space

This romatic apartment was completely renovated in the end of 2010. New design and functionality with the highest standards were mixed with the old charming high sealings (3,5 meters) and the old wooden flooring.
It is on the 2nd floor (with elevator/lift) and the historical building remains its Pombalino construction for more than two hundred years (1780). The apartment has a cozy living room with dining area (air conditioned), an fully equipped kitchen, one suite (double bed) with a private bathroom, an additional bathroom and 1 further bedroom (2 single bed).
From the living room you have access to a small balcony where you have a view over the typical streets of Lisbon (smoking allowed). There is space for 2 people to sit.
All rooms have double glass windows and central heating. The apartment is very good for groups or families. The localization is very central in the old town of Lisbon in the district 'Baixa', you can walk to any place of the centre of Lisbon or you can choose to take one of the many public transportations of that area and be a nature friend. From there you can reach the beache by bus or train within 15-30 minutes. The apartment has Internet WIFI and cable TV. Towels, bed cloths and local Maps will be offered.

  • Both Martin and his colleague Elmer made our stay for us 4 girls easy and enjoyable. We loved how the apartment was decorated! There are two tiny balconies (back and front of the apartment) were you can open the window doors and even sit on the chairs. The living room is relatively small for 4, but at least 3 will sit comfortable. The bedrooms, one double bed with en-suite bathroom with bath and shower, large sink and toilet & two singles and separate bathroom with shower and toilet, were good. I always bring earplugs when travelling anywhere and when sleeping in this apartment in the back bedroom you might need it, even though they have double glazed windows. General noise from the building itself (apparently many kitchens are located in the back; some chicken peri-peri might waft into your bedroom when leaving window doors open) and the building right across just travels easy when being so closely built to each other.
    The apartment was excellent equipped as promised! Fresh bed linen, towels (and extra towels), kitchen towels, dispensers with soap, first roles of toilet paper, good working showers & toilets, good working kitchen (oven, large fridge, washer/dryer, large cooking surface, cooking utensils etc.), hangers in closets and maps & to do things for the area. Upon arrival there was a welcome gift, which was very much appreciated!
    The location was also excellent, with public transport & a taxi stand down the road at the Plaza and many things within walking distance. An excellent apartment!

  • I highly recommend this apartment. The location was great: there is an adorable boulangerie about 5 minutes walk away as well as two grocery stores. Plus the barrio alto and chiado neighborhoods are easily accessible by foot. The flat itself is really comfortable and easy to live in. Martin is very responsive; he was really flexible with us when a storm forced us to push back our start date by two days and had the toilet fixed immediately when we notified him that the water was running. Overall great experience.

  • Spend a week with a friend of mine in Martins apartment . It's on a great location, very clean and recently renovated with a kitchen that has everything you need. Everything is close, streets of Baixa are filled with people during the day and quiet in the evening. Martin greeted us with a bottle of wine, information about transportation and tips on dining out. We recommend this apartment.

  • Gorgeous apartment, located in the real heart of the downtown! We enjoyed our stay a lot in this flat which has charm and character. The hosts - Martin and Stefanie - were very kind, helpful and professional. No problem can be mentioned.
    We could highly recommend this 5-star apartment to anyone who is planning to spend some time in Lisbon.

  • Flying in from new York and Berlin, my husband, my daughter, and I had the most wonderful days in Lisbon - 100% thanks to the fact that coming to Martin's apartment was like coming home. The place is comfortable, cozy, unbelievably quiet, spacious and perfectly located; it literally took only minutes to settle in and be able to step out and enjoy the vibrant life of the city. Martin is a communicative, reliable, flexible, wonderful host, greeting us with tons of ideas as to what to do, where to go - not to mention the tea, and coffee, and bottle of wine smiling at us in the kitchen. We most definitely will be back! Many many thanks!

  • We loved the appartement, you really feel at home, due to the carefully picked decorations and furniture. A modern, clean and stylish flat, spacious and in the middle of the best part of Lisbon. Can only recommend it. It s even better than on the photo's! And Martin is a great host, knows a lot of things to do and left booklets etc with handwritten tips.
    The only small disadvantage maybe is the noise you hear when the neighbors arrive, but that's kind of logical in such an old building in the center of an old town!
