The Space

Space and Light with the personality of the crossover between the old and the modern.
In downtown Baixa you are in the middle of everything that makes Lisbon such a special place.
You are at walking distance to the busy pedestrian R. Augusta, the Santa Justa Elevator or the river side and Praça do Comercio. Just walk a litle more and if you go to the left (facing the river) you go up hill till the Castle and all the old neighbourds. Go to the right you walk till the trendy Chiado and the night life of Bairro Alto, Bica and Cais do Sodré.

You can't get better than this!

Ah by the way, you have 2 bedrooms plus a convertible sofa in the living room to accommodate 6 people in total!
The living room is huge and full of light and we just didn't want people doing the hard work in the kitchen would miss this - so we did a open kitchen (kitchnet) so everyone is arround!
You want to feel the sound of the city just open the windows and small-balcony doors - if you need a litle rest just let them close - it is ok they are sound proof (or almost!)

We love this apartment and we hope you'll love it too - this was our first home and where we "did" 2 kids.
We just couldn't sell it now that we had to move - so we decided to share this passion with you and your friends!

You have everything you need:
- sofas and puffs so that everyone have a rest after a big day up and down Lisbon
- full equipped kitchen with dishwasher and laundry machine included (let the machines work for you!)
- An 8 person dinner table if you accidentally (or not) meet some new friends you want to invite in.
- A great stereo and awesome speakers with CD player and plug for your iPhone/Mp3
- keep cool with the air-conditioning

- let us know if you need anything more - this is our home and you are our guests

Places we like nearby:
- We like to take breakfast at Boulangerie by Stef or Outra face da Lua
- the last one also great for a light luch with great sandwish and toast and salads
- An ice-cream in Fragoleto
- a cafe and "pastel de nata" at Café Sao Nicolau
- any pastry at Confeitaria Nacional
- any fish at restaurants in Campo das Cebolas
- wine and tapas at Nectar

  • Hugos place was great, spacious and Central!

    March 2014
  • We had a great time at Hugos Place in Lissabon! Everything was perfect, the location situated directly in the centre of lissabon . the appartment itself was really modern, clean and spacious!=)
    Thanks for the stay!

  • Hugo was a great host. He met us at the apartment before the check-in time as he promised even though he lives elsewhere. The apartment was spacious with all the amenities we needed for our stay. The only draw back was the climbing of the stairs. Even with that, we really enjoy our stay.

  • The flat is perfectly located, you can do everything by walk and really enjoy Lisboa streets.
    The place is very clean and peaceful, perfect to stay on vacation. My friends and i really enjoyed there.
    Hugo is a perfect host, friendly, understanding.
    I advise you this place.

  • Appartement très central, bien agencé et sympa.

    February 2014
  • It was really a good place to stay, clean and very well localized to visit all the town. Our host, Hugo, was also very helpful by waiting us whereas our flight was late.

    It has been a pleasure to spend time there and enjoy Lisboa life :) Thanks again for making of our week-end a great memory.

  • The Flat is amazing! Very central but still the bedrooms are totally quiet for easy sleep! yes its 4 stairs up but come on its not big thing ;) a lot of space in the apartment, towels, everythign was prepared and Hugo met us there when we arrived. Only the wireless was a bit unstable.

  • The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

  • My family and I spent three nights in this spacious apartment. It is close to the river and tram 28 is just round the corner.
    No doubt that Hugo has done a great job modernizing it in this very old house.
    We only met Hugo for ten minutes to get the keys and a quick introduction but that was OK, we were on holiday and Hugo was not. We texted him a couple of times and that worked fine for us.
    We had trouble using the Wifi, because it worked very slow. It took several minutes just for a (website hidden) search.
    We didn't use the kitchen. There are very nice restaurants in close walking distance.
    If you prefer to sleep on a very hard mattress, this is the right place for you.
    We parked the rented car nearby the flat in an underground parking lot. The sign told that it cost 158 Euro per day, so we were positively surprised, when we payed 78 Euro for all three days.
    Hugo can provide you with the address if needed.

  • This very pretty apartment is located on the fourth floor (by European count, 5th floor by US count). There is no elevator; the stairway is filthy, with plaster falling down and electric wires seemingly free in the stairwell - I suggest not touching the railing, difficult with children. Once inside, it is pretty, airy and light.
    But there are rough aspects. The hot water is distinctly limited - shower quickly or your spouse gets no hot water; the mattress is too small for the bed frame by several inches, so you hit hard wood getting out of bed; there are three comfortable sofas, but no good reading light. I suspect that few people cook here, because there are few of those condiments - seasonings and the like, that people have left behind in other places where I have stayed, but, then, we went out for luncheon and dinner. There is no TV, but I wouldn't watch it anyway - who would with Lisbon available? The clothes washer works well, but there is no rack for drying items. The neighborhood is wonderful - old downtown with plenty of restaurants. I suggest Velho Macedo just around the corner at Rua da Madalena, 117 - superb. There is a reasonable food market across the street and Plaza Commercial is only a couple blocks one way and Rossio slightly farther the other. Hugo is delightful, but, after arrival, I only had the occasion to call him once to ask if he knew if the Metro was closed for the General Strike - it was.
    Overall, the apartment is pleasant. But, be sure you can climb those stairs before reserving.
