This beautiful apartment is situated 5 minutes walking distance from Bairro Alto and 10 minutes from Tagus River.It consists of two bedrooms, both with a comfortable double bed. The living room has a television led, a sofa and a dining table for when you want to make your meals at home.

The bathroom is also decorated with the typical Portuguese tiles, is spacious and comfortable and equipped with towels (face and body) and hair dryer. This apartment is also equipped with Wi-Fi Internet.
The apartment is in a typical Portuguese street, between lively Bairro Alto and Lapa/Estrela in the neighborhood of São Bento. The Grand São Bento Palace it’s so pretty that even the Prime Minister lives next door! Also enjoy the "Estrela Basilica" or the botanical gardens just at front.
There is a supermarket, plus several restaurants and bars within a 5-minute walk. São Bento is less than 15 minutes walking distance from Cais do Sodré Train Station. The Metro there provides access to central Lisbon in 10 minutes. Lisbon International Airport is 8 km away.
If you walk 5 minutes you're ub "Bairro Alto", known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. At night, this 17th century colorful district is transformed into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. The main streets and narrow passageways are bustling with activity of dozens of excellent traditional restaurants, «fado singing houses», cafés, and a multitude of sleek clubs and bars that stay open until late. In recent years, «Bairro Alto» is also an alternative shopping destination, for those looking for trendy design shops, art galleries and bookshops.
There are several buses and trams, and subway, 5 minutes away, although one can easily walk to the main points of the city.Two minutes walking is the heart of the glamorous and cosmopolitan city can still be felt in the Chiado, a place where the "new" and "old" live in harmony. Characterized by casual-chic atmosphere, with streets full of shops, fine restaurants, beautiful cobblestone, beautiful churches and timeless cafes, Chiado makes any visitor feel real Lisbon.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Was open in 1905 and it´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the sidewalk you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.
Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to see.
Luís de Camões square, which any "lisboeta" will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has. But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.
This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).
It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.

Reviews of this property
El anfitrión no vino a recibirnos hasta pasadas cuatro horas desde nuestra llegada, teniendo que estar esperando en la calle con un bebe el cual se puso enfermo del frío que pasamos. El apartamento mucho más viejo de lo que se ve en la foto. El plato de ducha todo oxidado y la cortina sucia. Jamás volveré a este apartamento. Fué patético.
The Apartment was perfect everything you need was there ...
The only Problem was that The cooker didnt work
The Host Are also very nice and helpful
The area is next To a Bus and a train and you can even Walk everything is nearby
I would definitly recommend it
Very charming apartment in a good and quiet location, everything exactly as described. We liked awarded the family of 4, so we would not hesitate to book again.
Sehr charmante Wohnung an guter und ruhiger Lage, alles genau so wie beschrieben. Hat uns als Familie mit 4 Personen ausgezeichnet gefallen, weshalb wir sie jederzeit wieder buchen würden.
Reviews for this host's other properties
The location was good especially for the BarrioAlto and for the Metro on the water. The host was available on our arrival and gave us good tourist tips and map. The apartment was only adequate. There were 2 wine glasses, one was broken, 5 glasses, no 2 the same. The bathroom needs some work. The most frustrating part was the fight each day with the Key/lick to enter the unit. This needs to be changed somehow. If you are a light sleeper this unit is not for you. There is a local cafe/ bar located across the street where patrons spill into the street and is VERY noisy until 1-2 am every night.
Aspetti positivi: posizione centrale - pulita - dotata di tutti i comfort - gestori molto disponibili (abbiamo avuto un problema con il wi fi e in brevissimo tempo sono venuti a sistemarlo)
Aspetti negativi: essendo molto centrale nel quartiere del Barrio Alto risente molto della movida notturna (rumori, schiamazzi, traffico fino all'alba) - alcuni ambienti (soprattutto il bagno) necessiterebbero di rinnovamento
Las vistas son espectáculares y apartamento está muy bien. El baño es significativamente pequeño pero la ubicación es muy buena y con los elevadores estás en el metro en menos de 10 min . Muy bien en general
Nice place, nice apartment.
El piso es bonito y la ubicacion no esta mal. No lo recomiendo a nadie para epoca con temperaturas veraniegas.La habitación donde están las camas no tiene ventilación solo una pequeña ventanita en el techo ( que estaba rota)y por la que lo unico que entran son mosquitos.
Indispensable es que le pongan aire acondicionado. Dormir alli fue un martirio.

the apartment is great. I agree with the statements of the other visitors. The View is amazing. The Location is awesome. It is very good organized - Carlos invited us to bring our luggage to his office during day of departure. But the bathroom is very small without a door. You have to notice this before booking.

die Wohnung is großartig. Ich stimme den anderen Bewertungen zu. Die Aussicht ist wunderschön. Die Lage einzigartig. Die Organisation funktioniert reibungslos. Wir könnten sogar unser Gepäck im Büro von Carlos abgeben. Aber das Badezimmer ist wirklich sehr klein und es gibt keine Tür. Sie sollten das wissen, bevor Sie buchen.
Wohnug war nicht sauber, leider sah es an den Bildern viel sauberer und schöner aus.
Ziemlich laut Nachts da schräg gegenüber eine Disco betrieben wird.
Toilette war nur zugänglich durch eine Schlafzimmer.
WiFi Code war nicht für die Gäste offen bzw Code war nicht hinterlegt.
Nach Anfrage bekommen wir den Code.
Bettdecke waren Dreckig und nicht überzogen.
Würde diese Appartment nicht mehr wählen.
