About This Listing
This is a modern and cozy apartment, full of character and light, set on the first floor (Drto) of an ancient typical Lisbon building in the trendy and vibrant Bairro Alto, known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. This apartment is part of a group of 7 apartments that we have in this building.
The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, a nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, ready to cook home made meals. Towels and linens at your disposal are included in the price and satelite Tv and wireless internet as well.
To set forth on a discovery of Lisbon, there is no better place to begin: the tram a few steps away, international brand shops at Chiado and the more daring fashions in Bairro Alto, where you also have the trendiest restaurants of Lisbon. Bica neighbourhood, close by, is becoming a night haven for artists and intellectuals. But this does not destroy the calm and charm of Rua das Chagas. For theatre and opera lovers there are three theatre houses at a five minute distance, S. Carlos, S. Luiz and Trindade Theatres.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.
Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to see.
Luís de Camões square, which any Lisboner will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has.
But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.
This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).
It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.
Walk the streets with care, the movement on the sidewalks is always heavy and the trams are constantly passing.

Clean, bright and very central. It looks exactly the same from pictures. Facilities fully provided. Ceck-in and check-out very easy (and smart), thanks to a door code instead of keys; Margarida sent it to my 2/3 days before arriving.
The best way to arrive from the airport is by taxi, it costs just around 12 euros and Bairro Alto isn't easy to reach if you are carrying a laggage. The flat is close to the nightlife, but just a few steps away from the noise, sleeping is not an issue. I had a wonderful time with my boyfriend and I will contact again Margarita when I will be back to Lisbon. Would definitely recommend.
Non abbiamo mai incontrato fisicamente margarita, ma è sempre stata molto disponibile, visti i nostri vari problemi con i voli, ci ha anche dato la possibilità di fare il check in anticipato. La casa era esattamente come ci immaginavamo dalle foto del sito, inoltre era molto pulita e accessoriata, luminosa e ben collegata. Il quartiere è molto vivo e pieno di ristoranti e locali, ma anche di piccoli negozietti per comprare generi di prima necessità.
Joli petit appartement très bien situé dans le Bairo Alto, coin branché de Lisbonne. Du coup, on était a coté de tout (bars, restaurants), tout en étant a l'abri du bruit.
L'appartement en lui même est très mignon, propre et confortable. Rien a dire de ce côté là. Le système d'accès par code est aussi très pratique, plus de crainte d'oublier ou perdre les clefs. Pas besoin de rdv a l'arrivée ou au départ pour l'échange de clefs avec le propriétaire
Si on devait retourner a Lisbonne, sûrement qu'on prendrait le même appartement.
Je recommande chaudement.
Nous avons passé un super séjour dans cet appartement ! Situé dans un quartier animé , parfait pour sortir le soir et rentrer rapidement ;) et situé dans une petite rue à l'écart donc pas trop bruyant.
L'appartement est conforme à la description , propre et bien décoré.
Les échanges sont agréables et très facile avec l'agence qui gère l'appartement !
Je recommande vivement cet appartement !
L'appartement est proche de tout, à seulement 2 minutes du tramway. Le quartier est vivant le soir, et agréable à visiter la journée.
L'appartement est propre et parfait pour un couple.
Notre hote est très disponible pour toutes questions concernant le voyage.
Séjour à refaire sans hésiter
We loved our stay in this appartment! It was a light and clean place to stay. Only the area is more for students and young people who like to go out and at night it was extremely noisy. Also in the building.
