Amazing apartment in the heart of Lisbon! You will love this place for its location, brightness and harmony of colors!

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.

  • It was again a great pleasure to stay at Dianka's appartment. We could enter the appartment already at 13:00 and it was very clean and well equiped.
    It was the second time for us where we stayed in this appartment, this time with our baby (11 months). If you manage all the stairs it's perfect to stay here with a baby since there's a big baby bed and a baby chair!

    We really enjoyed our stay and will return in some times.

  • We had an amazing time at Dianka's place in Lisbon! The apartment is beautiful, has a lot of natural light and is in the heart of the city. Dianka was quick to reply to all questions, met us at the door, had a baby bed and high chair for our daughter and called a taxi for us to go to the airport. I would love to stay here on our next trip to Lisbon.

  • A great place to stay with our toddler - the apartment was really safe for him and it was really helpful that Dianka was able to provide a cot and high chair for us.

    It's also a lovely part of town to stay in - so many things are within walking distance.

    The only downside was that it was a bit noisy at night, due to the bars and restaurants on the street below.

  • We had a good time. Place is clean and very central. Dianka was very helpfull!

  • Dianka was a fantastic host and the apartment matched the description. We would definitely stay here again. We were six girls sharing the apartment and there was more enough room. The apartment was a close walk to all the bars, the metro and old town. Dianka was very friendly and helpful.

  • We wanted to stay in a central location in Lisbon. The apartment was clean, cosy and location good. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted: São Jorge Castle, Bairro Alto and the food market by the river. Dianka was a very helpful host. She was active offering her help and arranging the check in. Everything worked just as we expected.

  • The flat is in a great location and made this work trip so enjoyable. 5 minute walk from Praca do Comercio and the metro station. We loved the charm of the flat and the size of the bedrooms as we never felt like we were on top of each other. The host was accommodating as we arrived a bit late because of the taxi queue and left late because of a later flight. I would stay here again on my next trip to Lisbon and hopefully it's for a holiday!

  • Dianka's place was incredibly clean and comfortable. The neighbourhood was safe and centrally located. Dianka was helpful with any requests for assistance during our stay, such as arranging a taxi pickup for us in the early morning. Great place to enjoy Lisbon from!
