Urban Chic Bright Apartment
- Baby cot
|Address||Travessa da Condessa do Rio, 1200 Lisboa, Portugal|
Located in Santa Catarina, in Lisbon's historic center, this charming and comfortable apartment in a building of the eighteenth century, is sited in a quiet area close to the known Chiado and Bairro Alto neighborhoods. The perfect location to experience the city!
This old house was recently renovated and decorated preserving the original plan. The high ceilings and the eighteenth century Portuguese tiles are seamlessly combined with modern and very comfortable decor. A large window in the living room let in the famous Lisbon light.
The apartment comprises a bright living room, a double room, a kitchen and a bathroom and is all decorated in pastel peaceful colors that gives a homey and very, very cozy environment to the apartment.
The living room is equipped with a sofa that can turn into a bed to fit one extra person. This is a futon bed. There is also a dining area with a round table and design chairs, and a beautiful armchair turned to the big window. The bright dedicated room has a very comfortable double four post bed where you are going to have very relaxing nights. The kitchen is fully equipped including coffee maker and kettle. The bathroom with a small bathtub, toilet, a sink and mirror offer everything you need for personal care. Boasts fresh towels also available free of charge.
The apartment is on the 2nd floor of an old (restored) traditional building of the historic center. As most buildings in the historic center, this one has no lift and therefore is not suitable for guests with mobility problems. This eighteenth century building was completely renovated in 2007 and awarded a prize for its historic facade.
The surrounding neighborhood is fantastic. Nearby you will find general stores and facilities like, grocery and fruit store: 120 m (down the street), Supermarket: 500 m; ATM machine: 500m.
The apartment is 2 minutes walking from Bairro Alto and 5 minutes walking from Chiado. The Bairro Alto is a picturesque old quarter and well known for its nightlife and unavoidable trendy and vintage shops. Chiado is one of the most emblematic and traditional neighborhoods of Lisbon. In this area you can find almost everything, any time of the day: be it a lazy brunch, great cheap restaurants, fado houses, grocery stores, supermarkets, art galleries, bookstores, theatre, trendy shops and with modern design souvenir shops to bring your friends and family.
Not to miss: the apartment is just 2 minutes walking from the Adamastor terrace, which is a privileged place to see the sunset and the river Tagus.
The apartment location is excellent! The famous tram No. 28 is almost at the doorstep; the tram stop is just 3 minutes’ walk. Tram 28 goes through most of the major tourist sites: Graça, Alfama, Baixa, São Jorge Castle, etc; 5 minutes’ walk from the subway; 10/15 minutes’ walk to the train station bound for the beach / Cascais or Belém; 15/20 minute walk to the train station bound for Sintra - this fairy tale village is UNESCO World Heritage Site;
Basically, this is a very central area with easy access to various transportation networks, either walking or by tram. Best of all, in a very quiet street where you can relax to the sound of birds. And if you are a walker, you can leave home and easily discover Lisbon walking to some of the best tourist spots (Principe Real – 10/15 minutes, Rossio – 10/15 minutes, Baixa Pombalina – 10/15 minutes, Saint Jorge Castle – around 30 minutes, Alfama – around 30 minutes,..). No need to take the Tram nº 28.
Getting here via airport: By Taxi – 15 € /20€ max including luggage tax; 15/20 minutes; if you use Airport Bus – 3,5€ up to 30 minutes – Hop off in Cais Sodré and then 15 minutes up hill. Getting there by car is a little bit tricky. In historic areas car access is restricted to residents. However, just down the street, some 120 meters from the building, there is a public parking that charges € 13,05 per day.
Hope to see you soon! And welcome to my wonderful Lisbon!

Reviews of this property
Alexandre was a fanstastic host and the apartment was really good. Everything was just great. We are definitely going back to this place if we are visiting Lisbon again. We had a fantastic week!
Our stay at the Urban Chic Bright Appartement in Lisbon was wonderful. Alexandre, the owner, was very friendly and helpful. He made us feel really welcome and provided useful information about restaurants in the area (they were all great!) and places of interest. The house is really central and almost everything is within walking distance. The appartment is clean and cosy and we felt very much at home. We look forward to staying there again in the future!
Super cute landlord has, nor given us lots of advice and even a rechargeable ticket, as well as a cell phone for emergencies and food for the first day. The apartment is totally centralized and is absolutely clean and nicely decorated. Highly recommended
Super netter Vermieter, hat uns noch viele Tipps und sogar eine aufladbare Fahrkarte gegeben, sowie ein Handy für Notfälle und Lebensmittel für den ersten Tag. Die Wohnung liegt total zentral und ist absolut sauber und schön eingerichtet. Sehr zu empfehlen
Eveline who took advantage of this apartment alone because I could not make this trip has made me many compliments:
- Perfectly located, with great clarity and joy, with all the necessary comforts.
She received a warm welcome from Alexander and followed his advice. She is ready to start!
Eveline qui a profité de cet appartement seule, car je n'ai pas pu faire ce voyage, m'en a fait beaucoup de compliments:
- parfaitement situé, d'une grande clarté et gaieté, avec tout le confort nécessaire.
Elle a reçu un accueil chaleureux de la part d'Alexandre et a suivi ses bons conseils. Elle serait prête à recommencer!
We were greeted by a very nice and helpful host who had lots of tips about the neighborhood and the city at large.
The apartment was in good condition, well cleaned and with bread, cheese and fresh strawberries as welcome :-) The location is also great, walking distance to the old town and easy access to bus / tram. All in all, a very successful stay that we would like to repeat.
Sincerely May and Roy
Vi ble møtt av et meget hyggelig og hjelpsomt vertskap som hadde mange tips om nærmiljøet og byen for øvrig.
Leiligheten var i god stand, godt rengjort og med brød, ost og friske jordbær som velkomst :-) Beliggenheten er også fin, gangavstand til de gamle bydeler og enkel adkomst til buss / trikk. Alt i alt et meget vellykket opphold som vi gjerne gjentar.
Vennlig hilsen May og Roy

We had a lovely time at this apartment.
It is beautifully decorated and so close to everything. You have all you need a few steps from the apartment. It was so comfortable and cozy that we enjoyed long and relaxed breakfasts there everyday. The morning light trough the little window in the bedroom is fantastic.
Our guests Alex and Carol were also perfect. Very welcoming and very eager to give us very good advice to enjoy Lisbon`s life and food. We also forgot something at the apartment and they offered to mail back to Spain.
We totally recommend it.

I spent one week in Santa catarina Details apartment with my two girls, 19 and 18 years old. I loved the building and the apartment is beautiful, from the 17 century with a new makeover. It was clean and have cooking possibility with everything you need. It is also very central, and you can easy walk to the center of everything. Also the tram 28 stops just around the corner. Carolina and Alex are wonderful people and they really did their best for us during our stay. You can depend on them and if any problem should arrive, they will surely do everything to help. I will recommend Santa Catarina department will all my heart!
Great apartment in a great location.
Close to Barrio Alto and Chiado, close to Main Station and market hall.
Alexandre and Carolina are super friendly and very supportive.
We had a very nice stay!
