The Space

You cannot get more central than this!
The apartment is magnificently located in Baixa – the chic area of Lisbon - in a traditional 200 year old building completely renovated last year. It is just 1 minute walking away from the famous Praça do Comércio stretching along the Tejo River, where the Royal Palace used to be. All major attractions are within walking distance. 5 minutes away you are at the foot of Alfama – the old neighborhood of Lisbon with its little streets going up the hill all the way to the Castle. Another 7 minutes walking on the other direction, you will be in Cais de Sodre and it is from here that half an hour train ride later, you will reach the beautiful beaches of Estoril and Cascais. Bairro Alto – the nest of night life in Lisbon - is also a short walk away from the apartment.

The apartment itself was fully renovated at the end of 2012. Yet it preserves the flair of a traditional Lisbon house with its original tiles called azulejos, which you can admire all over the city. The apartment is on the top floor of the building so the large rooms are bathed in light and the little balcony offers a great view to the river. Spacious and comfortable, the apartment can sleep 6 people in the two double bedded bedrooms and the separate living room. A fully equipped kitchen (oven, fridge, washing machine, pans and dishes) and a modern bathroom will make you feel at home. Fresh towels and linen are provided for your comfort. There is also a wifi connection available in the entire apartment.

On the same very street there are lots of restaurants with Portuguese cuisine with their tables lined up out in the sun all year round. Little boutique shops selling the famous Portuguese wine, traditional sardine shops, bakeries with delicious sweets will color your days in this amazing city.

Lisbon is all about walking and you are in the perfect place to start discovering its wonders. Yet if you want to use public transportation, the nearest metro station is only 3 minutes away by foot from the apartment. The famous tram 28 which will take you back in time is also around the corner.

  • Dianka's apartment is fabulous. Tastefully decorated. Very clean, spacious and with all the amenities you need. Dianka was an excellent communicator, getting back to me very quickly and kindly with any queries I had. Whilst not the quietest location, it certainly is wonderfully central, within walking distance to sightseeing and gorgeous restaurants in the old district of Alfama. I highly recommended this place.

  • Nice appartement, perfectly situated to explore Lisbon by foot. Was all clean, unfortunatly the weather in Lisbon was not that good and temperature was quite low and as there is no central heating in the house, it got quite cold at night. Electric heating helped out, thanks for that :). Dianka was very friendly and gave us some good insider advice for places to go out. All in all very recommendable!

  • Dianka's apartment is in a very cool and convenient neighborhood. The place itself is gorgeous, open, clean and full of light. She is a thoughtful and helpful host and did everything to make our stay in Lisbon fantastic. Lisbon is a beautiful city and experiencing it from Dianka's apartment made our trip even better!

  • We had a fantastic time in Lisboa and in Diankas apartement! Everything was exactly like you see it on the pictures. The location is perfect, you will find everything you need right around the corner. You can walk to a lot of sights and nice cafés and restaurants. Dianka was out of town that week, but her friend Melina was a very nice host and gave us a lot of information and told us everything we wanted to know.
    I will definitly come back again :)
    Enjoy your stay.

  • Dianka's apartment is beautiful - very spacious and calm, with a great view of the street below, and the harbour in the distance. The tiling is really special. There is some noise at night from nearby bars, but we didn't find it a problem. I didn't get to meet Dianka, but it was really easy to make arrangements with her, and everything about our arrival and departure was clear and well organised. I would certainly recommend this as a great base for exploring a great city!

  • We had a great time at Dianka's apartment. The location is very good and it looks just like the photos. The only downside we had was an issue with the electricity trip switch when using the electric oven or if we turn two or three heaters on.

  • We arrived in Lisbon just before Christmas to travel with our daughter who has been studying there this fall. We wanted a place with enough room for the 4 for of us to hang out and celebrate when much of Lisbon was closed for Christmas. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The weather was unusually rainy, windy and cold, but we were comfortable with 3 space heaters (the building is elegant and historic and does not have central heating, but Dianka supplied modern space heaters - however because the stove/oven draws a lot of current too, we needed to turn the heaters off to use the stove/oven without tripping the circuit, which is easily flipped back on). The beds were comfortable foam type, with nice sheets and towels. The location is central and charming. The city garbage collectors staged a a one week strike during our stay, but political and cultural events like these are what can make travel abroad interesting and educational. We enjoyed the apartment and would recommend it to friends. Thank you Dianka!
