From our window we see a tram passing by, while people are hanging their clothes in the balconies. The neighbors are chatting through their windows, while some are taking their breakfast at the little coffee shop in the corner. Isn't this what you want to see when you come to Lisbon?
The apartment is located in a building from the XIX century, right in the historical heart of Lisbon, in Graça neighborhood, near Mouraria and Alfama.
Situated in the surroundings of São Jorge Castle and the downtown area (baixa), it is within walking distance from many attractions. One of the most interesting is a Baroque Church named Igreja da Graça. Near the church there is a splendid viewpoint where you can see the different attractions of this fantastic city.
If you walk a little further, you can get an even broader view over the city, in the viewpoint of Nossa Senhora do Monte. In the surroundings, you can also visit an exceptional 16th century monument named São Vicente de Fora Monastery, the National Pantheon, the viewpoints of Portas do Sol and Santa Luzia, Sé Cathedral and São Jorge Castle.
From our charming apartment you can easily access shops, cafes, restaurants, fado houses, bars, flea market (Feira da Ladra), museums art galleries and craft shops. Furthermore, there are a lot of stylish restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood. From here, you can also easily get to all parts of Lisbon by underground, bus or tram.
The apartment, with 50 square meters, is very cozy and delightful. It has been designed to make the best use of available space, and making the most of natural light. The functional and light décor provide a comfortable environment.
On August 2013 we included double-glazing that protects the house from any potential outside noise.
So, if you're looking for a more authentic experience at this amazing city, this is definitely your best option.

We had a very good experience in Lisbon, staying in the nice apartment rent by Gonçalo! The apartment is well located to go sightseeing, and to feel the "Lisbon atmosphere".
We definitively recommend this apartment, and Gonçalo has been a very kind host.
The Appartment of Hugo was really nice and comfortable...you had all space you need even for 3 people and living room, nice bathroom! and hugo was also very nice although we didn't see him much he made a good impression on us.
Only downside: the only window of the room is Balcony from the sleeping room, but that is not a big problem!
definitly recommend this place!
A great place in a wonderful neighborhood, highly recommended!
I had a fantastic weekend staying in Gonçalo's flat which is in a great location in the old part of the city. It was just a short 5 minute walk to Martim Monez metro and only took 40-50 mins to travel from the airport on the metro. It was very clean and cosy with everything you need. Gonçalo was a generous host and gave me a very warm welcome. I found out some very interesting history about the city as well as good restaurants and places to visit, oh and some tasty Pasteis de Nata!. I would definitely recommend staying in Goncalo's flat.
Thank you Goncalo :)
Very nice apartment, well-equipped and clean. The location is really superb and is walking distance to the metro, a small supermarket, and many restaurants etc.
Goncalo is a wonderful host as others have mentioned. Highly recommended!
Very nice place, lovely apartment, perfect location. Very warm welcome from Gonçalo with a glass of "ginja" and the famous "pastels de nata"! He also advised us for the visits, the restaurants, etc... As on the description, you will be not far from everything, the historical center and the main neighborhoods like Alfama, Baixa, Chiado, Barrio alto, the tramways and the metro "Martim Moniz"...
So What else? I can just recommend Gonçalo's apartment, you can go there with the eyes closed!
We stayed at Goncalos place for 11 nights with our baby daughter. Goncalo was a perfect host, very friendly and helpful. He arranged a bed and high chair for our daughter, even special babytowels and bed linnen. The place is just as described, in a convienient location, close to everything. We arrived quite late and Goncalo had got us breakfast and offered pastries and a homemaid portugese drink. We were happy with our stay!
Lovely place. Perfect stay. Gonçalo was a great host, giving us his traditional drink of ginja to go with pastel de nata! The apartment is charming and comfortable. We felt right at home and Gonçalo helped us with everything we needed.
Goncalo is a very friendly and helpful host. The apartment is clean and well equipped with everything you will need for your stay in Lisbon. The location which is a typical working class neighbourhood and is an ideal walking distance to most of the tourist attractions, don't let any map fool you as Lisbon is very small and most places that you need to travel to are a lot closer to this apartment than you may think!
Lisbon itself is an ageing city and I hope one day the government will be in the position to help elevate it back to it's former glory. That said, I came in the rainy winter, yet the hilly streets with their old tiled buildings, the culture , the diversity, the friendly, most helpful and humble people shine through the aged beauty which makes me want to come back in the summer when I feel Lisbon will bloom like a flower.
Thank you Goncalo for your great introduction to your lovely home ...
Gonçalo's place was everything described in the profile and more. He's a well prepared and generous host. He greeted me with pastries, libations, a map, and recommendations for nearby restaurants. He also ordered a cab for me for my early morning departure. The apartment is located on a cute, safe, and quiet cobblestone street near a subway station and within walking distance of the major sites.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
