If interested, read on, and thanks for considering to stay here.

And, be so kind to read read the reviews other guests left here on my profile - you'll see that what makes the difference is not just the apartments or the location, but having someone always available to help you have the best stay ever! :)

Pretty apartment right in the middle of Bairro Alto - 5m walking from the subway (Baixa-Chiado).

A great and affordable choice for couples or solo travelers who want centrality.

It's fully equipped.

The AC is a fresh air column /ventilator (it works perfectly fine as the apartment is not too hot neither too cold).

Interaction with guests

It will be me or my friend welcoming you at the apartment.
Because I want to make your holiday in Lisbon as pleasant as possible, I ask you to contact me in case you have any suggestions or if there is anything you need, so I can do my best to improve your stay.
Nothing will make me happier than have you review your stat at my flat with 5 stars in every topic!

Other things to note


READ THIS BEFORE BOOKING, PLEASE : there are constructions works in the building right next to mine, so there is noise between 8am and 6pm. Please do not book if you are not OK with this, as unfortunately at the building we have no power to stop the works next door. This is also impacting our lives but there isn't much a normal person can do against the will of a big company.

# Currently there is no TV at the flat.
# Due to safety reasons, we prefer not to have gas installation at the apartment, the hot water is provided by a electric device, with 75L capacity. It is enough for a shower of about 12minutes.
20m later it will be ready/hot for another shower :)

Checkin after 10pm or before 10am has a fee of 20 euros - paid directly on checkin.
Late checkout, when there are no guests checking in on the same day, is possible, at no extra cost. You must confirm with me first if it is possible.

Welcome to Bairro Alto! :)

Please note that from the 1st of January 2016 a city tax of EUR 1 per person, per night is not included in the total price and should be paid on site. This tax is charged to guests aged 13 and older. It is subject to a maximum amount of EUR 7 per guest.

I ask all guests to follow these simple rules, so we can ensure that everyone's experience is a positive one.

It's all about making pleasant happy memories of your vacation in Lisbon – so that you'll come back again! :)

1. All the room fees are payable in advance, through the Airbnb system. If you are really enjoying the city and decide to stay a few more days, please check availability on the calendar and make reservation through the website. You can talk to me first if you have any questions.
2. Always turn off all the electric/gas equipment after use and make sure you close the windows and door before leaving the apartment. Even if you don't stay out for long.

3. INTERNET - free access high-speed internet at the apartment and there is also a portable internet device (3G) available upon request, so you can take internet with you when visiting the city.
This is a pay-as-you-go service with Vodafone, and top-ups (10€) are the guest's responsibility (if you want to have it available for your stay let me know).
4. If you need to wash any clothes, there is a washing machine available. As well as laundry products and instructions how to make it work.
5. Overnight visitors and pets at the apartment is not permitted.
6. You can have fun, listen to music, etc, but please at night make sure you keep the volume down, so it doesn't disturb neighbors. (If neighbors are making noises, please let me know asap - because you are not supposed to be disturbed as well :)
7. Guests are responsible for taking the garbage out and cleaning the bathroom and kitchen facilities after use, and for leaving the apartment tidy on check out.
8. Guests are asked not to move, remove, or change furniture, pictures, wall hangings or other room decoration without my consent. Also, accidents happen, so, if something gets broken, please let me know, so I can replace it and other guests don't miss it. Anyway, try not to break anything :)
9. The check out time is at 12:00(noon). If you need to leave the house after this time, you must talk to me as soon as possible. If not, I may have agreed to receive other guests, and you will need to leave until 12:00(noon).

10. Please leave the apartment tidy as you found it on check-in - You don't need to change towels and sheets.

Enjoy your stay! :)

Carla's apartment was absolutely lovely and a very enjoyable place to stay for a few nights during a city break in Lisbon. I would definitely recommend it to others, especially because my friend and I loved the area. Barrio Alto is definitely the place to be! Carla was very easy to communicate with as well which made our stay run smoothly. Thank you!

Carla's place is located in a brilliant part of town which wakens at night...which means it can get a little noisy at night but that's to be expected. The book of guests recommendations is great and Carla is on hand to give good advice. There is building work going on next door which starts around 8am - some days its noisy some days its not - no fault of Carla's.

This location is ideal for exploring Lisbon. If you like being near bars and restaurants I would highly recommend this place. There is a book of great suggestions of things to do and see which guests can add to. I think this is great idea and really helpful.

Carla is a great host and her communications were fantastic! I was greeting by one of her colleagues who was very knowledgable and made the check in and out a dream! Unfortunately the next door property was being refurbished whilst I was there and the noise from the builders was VERY loud. I was offered a full refund if I wanted to find somewhere else to stay, but as I was only there for a short time I didn't want the hassle of finding a new place at such short notice. The apartment is need of some renovation, but was as described. Though with Lisbon being such a great city, I wasn't in the flat very often!

First good things: good location, enough space. Then the negative: There is renovation going on next door (apparently has been going on couple of months). It is making really much uncomfort from 7:30am to 6pm. This renovation is also making kitchen roof leaking which creates bad smell (mold etc.). After asking Carla about this she did not answer any of my messages anymore. I paid 80eur/night for this so I assume that she would even apology but no, nothing. We slept one night in hotel to get some sleep.

Thank you so much for staying Santtu. I was out of the country when you arrived and during your stay, this is why my friend welcomed you instead of me. I would have loved to have the chance to meet you and say hello. I hope next time you come to Lisbon you drop a word and we have the chance to meet :D Enjoy your day :D

Despite the warm welcome, some very good tips about where to eat and what to see and the fact we could leave our luggage in the apartment at the checkout, the stay in the appartment was unfortunately not a positive experience. In our opinion, the apartment should not be rented out during this period; there is a considerable leak in the kitchen, the entire building is being renovated next to the house so from 8-6 there is a lot of noise, the power outlets are loose, cracks in the walls and it is generally outdated (mould) particularly the bathroom and kitchen (for tall persons it is close to impossible to use the toilet). Carla give us the opportunity to cancel the stay, which is very nice of her. But, it's difficult to find other stay last minute... We definitely will be back in Lissabon though will stay in a other airbnb.

A lovely apartment in a great location in the heart of Lisbon's Bairro Alto area. Great bars, cool street food and all within an easy walk into central Lisbon. An amazing city and this is a great place to stay.
