About This Listing
This apartment is part of a group of 7 apartments that we have in this building in Bairro Alto, Travessa dos Inglesinhos 27, 1ºEsq.
The apartment is a T2, with two bedrooms with a double bed and a double sofa bed in the living room. The only bathroom is inside one of the bedrooms and the kitchen is full equiped with everything you need.
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.

A lovely apartment in a great location, very spacious and clean. The bathroom was a bit small, and the shower difficult to use, but other than that, we had a great time staying here. Good communication at all times with prompt responses to all our questions. We would highly recommend this apartment, it's great.
This was a great experience for us in Lisbon. Being our first time in the city, Bairro Alto has many bars and restaurants to make the stay amazing. Unlike any hotel can give you, this flat puts you right in the middle of everything. Margarida was very responsive and was available when needed. What a great way to see Lisbon from a local's perspective!
casa super confortável, bem localizada, tranquila
Estava tudo organizado e havia tudo o que era necessário
The communication in advance was very good and we received prompt answers to any questions we had. I asked for a radiator for the apartment as we were travelling in February and when we arrived at the apartment the radiator had kindly been turned on already to warm up the apartment. Every request has been answered very informative, quick and kind.
