THE INCREDIBLE HOUSE OF MARQUÊS (3 BEDROOMS)
|Address||Escadinhas do Marques Ponte Lima, 1100 Lisbon, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
All rooms and even the hall are decorated with a particular style, friendly and welcoming: There are pictures on the walls, lamps and various author´s objects and curious furniture were carefully chosen or designed for the space itself, as seen in photos.
It is the house that we like to live, comfortable, large, well located and with a vintage flavor. A different house, curious and fun, decorated with love, savoir faire, and sense of humor. Bed linen and towels are included.
Regarding the location, the apartment is in the road Escadinhas do Marqués Ponte de Lima, a quiet area that flows downhill in the neighborhood of Mouraria, and owes its name to the fact that D. Afonso Henriques, after the siege of Lisbon, confined in these streets the Muslim people. According to the theories of some historians, in the melancholy music of these confined people we could found the origins of FADO, Portuguese blues par excellence.
Going up the stairs of Escadinhas do Marquês, we arrived at the street Costa do Castelo, which ended in São Jorge Castle, and also we arrived on the neighborhood of Graça. Some points of interest are: O Teatro da Garagem: it has a bar with one of the most beautiful terraces of the hill (2 minutes walk). Chapito, bar-restaurant and a circus school with concert schedule, a meeting place for nocturnal people! (5 minutes walk). São Jorge Castle, of course, (6 minute walk). Graça viewpoint. (6 minutes walk). Santa Lucia viewpoint. (5 minutes walk). Central Rossio Square, (8-10 min. Walking downhill).
For transportation, you have the famous Tram 28, Stop Largo da Graça, only a 6 minute walk away. For Metro, you have the Green Line, Stop Martin Moniz, 5 minutes walk. (However taxis are cheap in Lisbon, usually a career hardly exceeds 4-5 euros!).

I have really enjoyed the stay in this apartment! It is very central and you can reach everything by foot.
The host was really nice and had some tips for us, where to go and what's worth to visit. The apartment has everything you need and we didn't miss one thing. (Coffee cooker and all kind of pots, pans and other homewares).
The apartment was clean and everything worked how it should! I also liked the style of the apartment!
For visitors with a car:
Because of the central location of the apartment it can take some time to find a good parking spot.
I would definitely book this apartment again!
We spend 7 nights in this imaginative decorated flat,.very well situated in the old and most charming part of Lisbon.We had to walk a lot of steps (77 excactly...) from the street down to the house, but it was absolutely worth the effort.
We enjoyed our stay very mucht and felt at home. Our friendly host Fernando welcomed us with a lot of food, bread, fruit, coffee etc. and even wine.
We spent 9 nights here and felt very at home. It had everything you might need and was really nicely decorated to look like a sort of art gallery. The owners were very pleasant and sent us a lot of information via email and left some information in the flat and even offered to take us out for a drink though unfortunately we didn't find time. Felt safe as well and from the brief interaction we had with the neighbors there were no issue. The one drawback is that it's halfway up one of the bigger 7 hills of Lisbon (about 200 steps from the metro) but that would be true of most places in Lisbon by it's nature. Also the dustbins were collected at 1 in the morning and dragging large bins up and down stone steps wasn't quiet but other than that for a capital city it was rather quiet. Well positioned in the old town (near the Castle & the Cathedral) and only 5 minutes from transport links (trams, buses & metros). Generally a great place to stay.
Very cool, iIndividuelle apartment in Mouraria. Friendly welcome and you get all the information you need. Fruit plate was filled and in the fridge you can also find something. Castle, Alfama, Baixa, metro, tram .. everything short walking distances. It was wonderful and we recommend it in any case further. Thank you
Sehr coole,iIndividuelle Wohnung in Mouraria. Freundliche Begrüßung und man bekommt alle Auskünfte die man braucht. Obstteller war gefüllt und im Kühlschrank kann man auch was finden. Burg, Alfama, Baixa, Metro, Straßenbahn.. alles kurze Laufwege.
Es war wunderbar und wir empfehlen sie in jedem Fall weiter.
Very charming and stylish apartment in the heart of the old town. We were made very welcome by Marta, the fridge was filled, a bowl of fruit on the table, the beds were comfortable and there were enough towels for all. The apartment is quiet and centrally located and we were able to reach Lisbon with all its wonderful viewpoints, restaurants and bars practically walking distance and the beautiful beaches in Fonte da telha & Cascais by car (approx. 30 min.). Perfect Holidays! Muito Obrigada! See U soon!
Sehr charmant und stilvoll eingerichtete Wohnung im Herzen der Altstadt. wir wurden sehr nett von Marta empfangen, der Kühlschrank war aufgefüllt, eine Obstschale stand auf dem Tisch, die Betten waren bequem und es gab genug Handtücher für alle. Die Wohnung ist ruhig und zentral gelegen und wir konnten Lissabon mit all seinen wundervollen Aussichtspunkten, Restaurants und Bars praktisch zu Fuß und die herrlichen Strände in Fonte da Telha & Cascais mit dem Auto (ca. 30 min.) erreichen. Perfect Holidays! Muito Obrigada ! See U soon!
I can recommend the lovely apartment that we used 4 nights. Charming and homely and extremely well located and furnished. It had everything we needed. Maybe they should point out that there are many stairs.
Jeg anbefaler gerne den dejlige lejlighed, som vi benyttede 4 nætter. Charmerende og hjemlig og særdeles godt beliggende og indrettet. Der var alt, hvad vi havde behov for.
Måske skulle man gøre opmærksom på, at der er en del trapper.
