The Space

Bright boutique apartment of 73 square meters (785 square feet) in the prestigious and historical area of Principe Real, 5 minutes walking distance from Bairro Alto/Chiado. It has been renovated by architects and stylishly decorated with quality furniture and modern fittings and facilities to provide you with a unique feeling of space, comfort and tranquility in the noblest part of Lisbon.
You will enjoy plenty of natural light with truly magnificent views of the river and the old city from several windows and balconies. This sensation of space, light and freshness is amplified by the apartment’s tall ceilings and old wooden floor.
The apartment is located on the top floor (4th floor) of a very well-kept traditional Lisbon building in the heart of Principe Real. It is surrounded by beautiful gardens and very close to several tourist attractions, museums, operas, theatres and churches.
It comprises one comfortable and quiet bedroom with a king-sized double bed and a double sofa-bed in the living room.
The living room has two large windows and a balcony with breathtaking views of Lisbon’s typical neighborhoods and the Tagus River. It also includes a large TV projector as well as an air-conditioning unit which also provides heating. There is a dining table seating 6 people and a fully equipped open kitchen for you to enjoy a cozy dinner at home before heading out to enjoy the best of Lisbon’s night life. The property has 2 bathrooms. Wi-Fi internet connectivity is offered free of charge in all rooms.

Location and neighborhood
The apartment is in the heart of one of the most gorgeous and charming neighborhoods of the old city known by its elegant and aristocratic architecture, a dynamic and tolerant cultural life surrounded by beautiful gardens (Botanical Garden) and very close to several museums, operas, theatres and churches. From here you can walk to all picturesque districts where most attractions are located: Baixa, Chiado, Bairro Alto and Alfama.
Around the flat you can find all kinds of facilities such as local grocery stores, markets, coffee shops, restaurants, pharmacies, bars, antique shops, galleries and a Spa. Down the street there is a pretty square (Praca das Flores) of restaurant terraces where you can sit outside and enjoy some good Portuguese food and wine. This is also where you will find the most beautiful traditional Lisbon kiosk, where you can enjoy a morning coffee or a late afternoon drink.
There are no bars or restaurants in the street of the apartment that could potentially disturb your sleep, or your stay.

Public transportation
You will love the option to walk almost everywhere, but when it comes to public transportation the flat is strategically located:
-Subway (9 minutes walk to metro station Rato – yellow line – or 12 minutes walk to Baixa/Chiado – blue/green lines)
-Ferry/boat to cross the river (15 minutes walking to Cais do Sodre)
-Train to Sintra (Rossio train station is 14 walking minutes away) and Belem-Jeronimos/Cascais-beaches (15 minutes walking to Cais do Sodre train station)
-Stop for tram/cablecar number 28 is 10 minutes walking

  • We arrived quite late in the evening, yet Pedro still met us at the apartment to greet us and took the time to show the apartment, give us recommendations on what to do/see, and suggest nearby sites.

    First, let me tell you that the views from the apartment that are in these phots do not do it justice. The view is really spectacular - both in the day and night! The apartment is immaculate and so nicely decorated. Such a home like feel - I really felt like I was staying in my own apartment despite that I'd never been to Portugal.

    The apartment is SO CLOSE to everything (you can walk almost everywhere - 5 min. to Barrio Alto), yet is still located on a street that is peaceful enough where you can sleep at night!

    Pedro is the most gracious, kind and welcoming host, and my friend and I LOVED his apartment. We will 100% be looking to book this place whenever we visit Lisbon again. I can't find one negative thing to say about this place - I highly recommend staying here!

    Thanks so much Pedro!

  • Highly recommendable!

    Comfortable apartment and absolutely perfect for a romantic weekend!

    Walking distance from Bairro Alto where the nightlife is as social as it can be, and with many restaurants to choose from!

    For some people the 5 floors stairs might be too much.. but for us it was just perfect to enjoy even more that absolutely remarkable view!!

    Thank you Pedro!

  • This really is a perfect spot! I took my girlfriend here as a birthday surprise en she was thrilled (as was i by the way...:)). The views over the city are really amazing and even better than in the pictures. Just so fantastic to have your breakfast or your end-of-the-day drink with a view like this. Amazing, really! The neighbourhood in which the apartment is located is quiet, with a nice small square nearby with some good, not-touristy restaurants and bars. Barrio-Alto, Chiado and even Baixa are within walking distance. So the apartment is central, fully equiped, nice, clean, quiet, pleasant......what more to whish for? And on top, Pedro was a perfect host, helping me out in my quest to get to know Lisbon and to find the right spots and places.

    If we come back to Lisbon, which we surely will, I hope to use this apartment again! So thank you Pedro, for letting us stay in your house!

  • This apartment is an absolute delight. It's a beautiful, clean, cozy and romantic place with lots of natural light and a breath-taking view of Lisbon through the huge windows, with nice details like candles all over the place, great selection of fado CDs for the stereo, everything you need to cook your own meals in kitchen, very nice interior design with retro items, etc. The host was extremely helpful and made sure our stay was as comfortable as possible. Highly recommended.

  • There are a lot of great restaurants and clubs in the area and a supermarket just around the corner. The apartment was spacious and the view is incredible! The balcony is very cosy and perfect for enjoying a glass of wine in the evening. Francisco was very nice and helpful, with a wealth of information about places to go in Lisbon.
