About this listing
Central, Charming, Quiet, Design by architect.
Welcome to Portuguesa 23, my charming apartment right in the heart of Lisbon's historical centre. The famous Bica´s lift is on one corner and Chiado is on the other!
This neighbourhood is classified as national monument and heritage and it still has ruins of the ancient Fernandina's Wall from XIV Century.
Strategically located between Chiado, Bairro Alto, Santa Catarina and Tejo's River, you can see downtown Lisbon in a walking distance from Portuguesa 23.
The metro station Chiado is only a few meters away as well as the main bus-lines.
It can accomodate 2 young people and I can provide a baby bed. It's a lovely house with a living-room, kitchen, walking closet, mezanino with double bed, bathroom and a small balcony.
Despite being in the centre of Lisbon, this is a quiet and family building. Please take that in consideration.
The only rule that I have is to leave the flat the same way as you found it in the check-in.
From Jun 1 - Sep 30, 2015 the minimum stay is 2 nights.
The stay at Joana's surpassed all of the expectations.
The apartment itself is even more impressive than in pictures, it's super cozy thanks to its unique design. The location is pefect: quite close (a 5 min walk) to 2 metro stations (Baixa/Chiado or Cais do Sodre) plus it's in the heart of Lisbon and at an arm's lenght to the amazing viewpoint of Santa Catarina.
And last but not least, the host: despite we didn't meet in person, Joana's continuous support was all the way throughout my stay, and although I arrived a little earlier than planned with a short notice, she managed to get the apartment prepared for me within the timeframe - all of that made me literally feel like home!
Très bel appartement, très bien situé, et tout à fait conforme à la description. Idéal pour un séjour à deux au sein de la capitale. Joana est très accueillante, sympathique et disponible. A recommander sans hésitation!
Very practical appartement. Very good location! In the heart of the vibrant life of Lisbon.
We didn't see Joanna but everything we needed was there.
Joana's apartment was an absolutely fantastic base for our stay in Lisbon. The area is in the centre of a charming and lively neighbourhood with quick access to the centre of the city and just a ten minute walk to the train station which takes you to the coast.
The apartment was clean and beautifully furnished.
Joana's flat was perfect! Best location, the appartment looks exactly like in the pictures, very cute. Ik would definitely recommend this place, and love to come back someday.
We had a brilliant time in Lisbon with many thanks to this beautiful flat we were staying in. It's located in the heart of the city yet it offers a peaceful escape from all the hustle and bustle. I will be strongly recommending Joana's flat to my friends. It is ideal for any couple looking for a perfect city break.
About the Host, Joana
I'm Joana and this was my first flat in Lisbon. It was lovely to live right in the heart of Lisbon nearly inside the Bica's lift! I'm an architect so I really appreciate historical neighbourhoods and architectural heritage. I will be pleased to advise about the best architectural places to see as well as the best spots to visit, eat or relax in Lisbon.
