Prime location - Bairro Alto 1B
|Address||Travessa dos Inglesinhos, 1200 Lisbon, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
This is a modern and cozy apartment, full of character and light, set on the first floor (Drto) of an ancient typical Lisbon building in the trendy and vibrant Bairro Alto, known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. This apartment is part of a group of 7 apartments that we have in this building.
The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, a nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, ready to cook home made meals. Towels and linens at your disposal are included in the price and satelite Tv and wireless internet as well.
To set forth on a discovery of Lisbon, there is no better place to begin: the tram a few steps away, international brand shops at Chiado and the more daring fashions in Bairro Alto, where you also have the trendiest restaurants of Lisbon. Bica neighbourhood, close by, is becoming a night haven for artists and intellectuals. But this does not destroy the calm and charm of Rua das Chagas. For theatre and opera lovers there are three theatre houses at a five minute distance, S. Carlos, S. Luiz and Trindade Theatres.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café 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 Lisboner 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.
Walk the streets with care, the movement on the sidewalks is always heavy and the trams are constantly passing.

Reviews for this host's other properties
Nice flat, calm but central: perfect for us!
We felt very comfortable and the costs for the flat are in a good balance to what you get. We liked the view out of the window. The space seams a little bit bigger on the pictures, but it was space enough for us three. It was clean and we had all we needed! The area around is calm but central: The next Metro Station "Intendente" is near, the 28E tram to "Alfama" comes along that way and the train to the beach starts at the end of the green line (Metro).
The landlord organized a taxi for us in the early morning which was very helpful, because the taxi driver in Lisboa often don't speak English.
If the shower would be refurbish, we would recommend the flat to all our friends.
Thanks for all. We had a very good time in Lisboa!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great flat right in the middle of a busy area very good for nightlife, and easy access to all the sights of Lisbon.
My friend and me absolutely loved the apartment. Both bathrooms and bedrooms were nice and spacy and equipped with all you need to feel comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, too, dishwasher and even a washing machine included. Just around the corner was a crocery shop that - although small - had everything from bread, fresh fruit/vegetables and other necessities. The apartment is only a 10 minute walk from the city center, metro station etc. Checkin and checkout worked very timely and smoothly, very nice person who met us at the apartment and booked us a taxi on our checkout day to get to the airport. So we were absolutely satisfied and did not see one thing to complain about. We would definitely book this apartment again on our next trip to Lisbon. Thank you very much - dear hosts.
Everything worked out great. The apartment was clean and nice and it is located in a quiet side street. Unfortunately, the terrace is surrounded by a high wall and therefore not very inviting but all in all, agrees the value for money.
app well located in a scenic area on the ground floor BUT without double glazing (intense nightlife !!!) with misleading photos:
only the correct room was the sofa in the living room doubtful shower tray with brown seals and badly arranged kitchen and bathroom s without vents
d or odors ..
well organized and friendly reception
app bien situé dans un quartier pittoresque MAIS en rez de chaussee sans double vitrage (vie nocturne intense!!!) avec des photos trompeuses :
seule la chambre etait correcte le canapé du salon douteux le bac de douche avec des joints marrons et mal disposée la cuisine et la s de bains sans aerations
d ou des mauvaises odeurs..
reception bien organisée et aimable
Pretty, well equipped and centrally located apartment (only a few steps to the tram station and E28 to the supermarket). The old town is (over a smaller hill within walking distance). Small, but high walled terrace. Outlook Unfortunately, even on the wall of the terrace - but that does not bother when you're most of the day in the beautiful Lisbon road. Apartment takeover and -abgebe completely uncomplicated. Very friendly welcome and helpful tips. Wenn's not be so many other interesting places, we comb certainly very soon!
Hübsche, gut eingerichtete und zentral gelegene Wohnung (nur wenige Schritte bis zur Straßenbahn E28 und bis zum Supermarkt). Auch die Altstadt ist (über einen kleineren Hügel zu Fuß erreichbar). Kleine, allerdings hoch ummauerte Terrasse. Ausblick leider auch nur auf die Mauer der Terrasse - das stört aber nicht, wenn man fast den ganzen Tag im wunderschönen Lissabon unterwegs ist. Wohnungsübernahme und -abgebe völlig unkompliziert. Sehr freundlicher Empfang und hilfreiche Tipps. Wenn´s nicht noch so viele andre interessante Orte gäbe, kämmen wir sicherlich sehr bald wieder!
have always had good experience with Wimdu; good housing, good service, rapid assistance with questions and problems.
Apartment was good, especially very quiet and very clean
bisher immer gute Erfahrungen mit Wimdu gemacht; gute Wohnungen, guter Service, rasche Hilfe bei Fragen und Problemen.
Wohnung war gut, vor allem sehr ruhig und sehr sauber
The accommodation was basic (in decoration, etc.) but sufficient for us. Central location, enough beds, wifi, tv, 2 bathrooms. As advertised. (we missed a toaster and a coffee machine)
Communications with the host was good. But the handover of the key was a bit unlucky. We arrived in the evening 9 pm, and while on the phone everything was ok, the guy who brought the key was late. So we had to wait up to 30 minutes outside. Not a deal breaker, but a point for attention (don't let a family with kids wait 30 minutes in a, for them, completely unknown location:) ... I will deduct 1 full point for this.
So, I was going to give a 7/10 (8 for the basic, but as advertised, accommodation and 1 minus point for the key-handover) but I will give 1 full point extra because the people at the office really took good care of us the last day ...
... we had an evening flight (10 pm), but had to check out at 11 am (normal procedure). The people in the office offered the following solution for our luggage. We could store the luggage at their office until 7 pm, so we could enjoy another, near full, day in Lisbon. At 7 pm we picked up our luggage, and the office called a taxi for us. Top marks for that!
So, all in all, a great stay!
A well deserved 8/10
very very noisy as there is a night bar that opens 22h so there are people and music has thoroughly until 5am
over the sofa on which ns was broken slept on a part then to sleep well at all
and especially given the price of the rental ns ns expected a lot better
Fortunately the only positive is that the lady who ns received was very cheerful and very friendly
rue très très bruyante car il y a un bar de nuit qui ouvre a 22h il y a donc des gens et de la musique a fond jusqu a 5h du matin
de plus le canapé sur lequel ns dormions était cassé sur un partie alors pour dormir pas bien du tout
et surtout vu le prix de la location ns ns attendions a beaucoup mieux
heureusement le seul point positif c'est que la dame qui ns a reçu était très souriante et tres sympathique
Light Central Apartment is located near a metro station, about 7 minutes. In the main street, we found a cafe that even open on Sunday had for breakfast, also a homely bar with a very good fish, other restaurants at Rossi..wir it ran on foot. (Already about 35 minutes)
You can complain about the Bad..in the shower tray is a strange covering (plastic coating?) Who has moved up to u because you have to draufsteigen..er dissolves partially, the easy going not. The bathroom I first cleaned, the mirror is down blind, the towel rack came off the wall when we wanted to hang the towel. New sponges I bought, the old ones were very alt..den shower curtain I have also cleaned, were off black mold traces. Cooked we do not have. The beds were i.o. Unfortunately, we could see the front door several times not unlock and it took about 10 minutes to try until they could be then open.
The shower needs to be renovated and the door lock to be replaced or repaired.
The transfer on arrival was nice, also the Tips for Trips.
Das Licht Central Apartment befindet sich nahe einer Metrostation, ca. 7 Minuten. In der Hauptstraße fanden wir ein Cafe das selbst am Sonntag offen hatte zum frühstücken, ebenfalls ein heimisches Lokal mit sehr gutem Fisch, weitere Lokale am Rossi..wir sind es zu Fuß gelaufen. (schon ca. 35 Min)
Zu bemängeln ist das Bad..in der Duschwanne ist ein eigenartiger Belag (Kunststoffbeschichtung?) der sich hochgeschoben hat, u da muss man draufsteigen..er löst sich teilweise, das geht einfach gar nicht. Das Bad habe ich erstmal geputzt, der Spiegel ist unten blind, der Handtuchhalter kam aus der Wand als wir das Handtuch aufhängen wollten. Neue Putzschwämme habe ich gekauft, die alten waren sehr alt..den Duschvorhang habe ich ebenfalls gereinigt, waren schwarze Schimmelspuren dran. Gekocht haben wir nicht. Die Betten waren i.o. Leider konnten wir die Haustüre mehrmals nicht aufschließen u es hat ca. 10 Minuten versuchen gedauert, bis sie sich dann öffnen ließ.
Die Dusche muss renoviert u das Haustürschloß erneuert bzw. repariert werden.
Die Übergabe bei der Ankunft war nett, auch die Tips für Ausflüge.
