Amazing apartment in the heart of Lisbon! You will love this place for its location, brightness and harmony of colors!
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.
Really nice place to stay in Lisbon, very central. Dianka is very helpfull and a perfect host. Thank you !
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.
Lovely apartment, in the perfect spot for visiting Lisabona.
Close to everything you need to visit and any kind of transportation.
Dianka is a lovely host, she will help you with everything you need to know or find .
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!
We had a great stay here. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The place was spacious and comfortable. We were three adults and a toddler and spent 4 great days in Lisbon
Dianka was very accommodating with our late arrival also.
On the down side there were a couple of issues:
1. No heat (built in) - but Dianka had provided space heaters for us (and turned them on before we got there so it was cozy). We were there the last weekend of November so it was pretty cold. This would not be an issue unless you stay in winter. The space heater worked well but if you are out all day touring then the place was cold when you get back.
2. There was an issue with the oven and the electricity 'trip switch'. But we could just flick it back on after it 'tripped'
The issues are minor and we had a great stay!
nice beautiful place with lots of natural light, close to everything. dianka is also SUPER helpful and helped us out in a pinch when we locked ourselves out!
Dianka was an excellent host. The house is so well located and so clean that you don't miss a hotel at all. The communication with Dianka was also perfect. I wrote her that I was chilly the first night and I needed a blanket and she brought me one the very same day. The beds are so comfortable and there's a very nice place to have a drink just under the apartment. Everything was terrific!
Dianka was very flexible and helpful during check-in and check-out. Thanks Dianka! The apartment was clean and beds were comfortable and short walk to everywhere. Central and convenient location. The noisy at night could be hear and internet connection was a bit slow but everything else was wonderful!
It is a wonderful flat in the city of Lissabon. Very clean and comfortable. The perfect stay. But sometimes it was very loud! from the night life nearby.
Thank you for the nice Appartment and your Help.
