This is a modern and cozy studio, full of character, set on the ground floor of an ancient typical Lisbon building near ( 5 minutes walking distance ) the trendy and vibrant Bairro Alto and the best Lisbon neighborhood, Lapa.
The Apartment is a studio and has a maximum capacity for 3 persons: Sleeps two in double bed and another one in the sofa bed. Nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, ready to cook homemade meals. Towels and linens at your disposal are included in the price.
You will found also a little patio, with furniture and stone floor. Here is the perfect place to relax, have a nice meal or enjoy a tastefully glass of wine with you family and friends.
The apartment are in a typical Portuguese street, between lively Bairro Alto and Lapa/Estrela in the neighborhood of São Bento. 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.
If you walk 5 minutes you´re at "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. Bairro Alto, one of the Lisbon hippest and coolest place.
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. 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.
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.

We were very pleased with our accommodation in Lisbon. The apartment has all the facilities, is clean and neatly furnished. The location is really good, the connection through the bus 712 to the public transport optimally. The balcony invites you to breakfast and evening Sundowner.
Our host was extremely friendly and helpful, we would not hesitate to re-book this apartment.
Wir waren mit unserer Unterkunft in Lissabon sehr zufrieden. Die Wohnung bietet alle Möglichkeiten, ist sauber und ordentlich eingerichtet. Die Lage ist wirklich gut, die Anbindung durch den Bus 712 an den öffentlichen Nahverkehr optimal. Der Balkon lädt zum Frühstück und abendlichen Sundowner ein.
Unser Gastgeber war außerordentlich freundlich und hilfsbereit, wir würden jederzeit wieder diese Wohnung buchen.
The location of the apartment in Alfama, close to the Se cathedral and city center is perfect. All Lisbon regions (Alfama,Baixa, Bairro alto and Chiado) are at walking distance. In case you want to go there by public transportation you'll find tram (28E and others) and bus stop just around the corner and the metro station Terreira do Paco is at a 5 minutes walk. There's a supermarket "Pingo Doce" at approx. 10 minutes walking distance.
The sober decorated apartment has a kitchen, 2 small bedrooms, a very small living room and a bathroom.
We had to clean part of the kitchen and do the dishes before use.The kitchen gear is very basic and partly incomplete. When we arrived we found only 3 glasses (this was resolved after a call to the host). There's no electric coffee machine. Besides a dustpan with a short broom, there are no other (floor) cleaning tools like a vacuum cleaner, normal sized broom etc. So it's hard to keep it clean when you're there for more than 2 days.
The double bed in one of the bedrooms measures only 184 x 128, which is not a normal double sized bed and doesn't fit taller people. This should be mentioned on the website.
The absence of a shelf with bed light at one side of the bed in both rooms, which were there in the past according to the holes in the wall (and pictures on the website) indicate a lack of maintenance as did the broken dustbin, not functioning lock on the bathroom door, no light in the refrigerator etc.
I would not recommend this apartment for more than 4 persons.
Overall, we did enjoyed our stay and the host was very friendly, but based on the reviews, I got a slightly different impression of the apartment. With this review I want to compensate for that. I think it's quite easy to make it a more attractive apartment with only minor investments. Please do.
Apartment suitable for 5 persons, good location (but steep descent), a lot of small / very low cost / easy / good quality restaurants nearby, as a small supermarket. Apartment was well equipped, with coffee maker and teapot facilities could be improved. Key handover went smoothly, friendly welcome with some tips to Lisbon. Small drawback: Not all rooms were cleaned perfectly. But overall: Highly recommended!
Wohnung gut geeignet für 5 Personen, gute Lage (allerdings steiler Abstieg), viele kleine/sehr preiswerte/einfache/qualitativ gute Restaurants in unmittelbarer Nähe, ebenso kleiner Supermarkt. Wohnung war gut ausgestattet, durch Kaffemaschine und Teekanne könnte Ausstattung noch verbessert werden. Schlüsselübergabe klappte problemlos, freundlicher Empfang mit einigen Tipps zu Lissabon. Kleines Manko: Nicht alle Räume waren perfekt gereinigt. Doch insgesamt: Sehr empfehlenswert!
The accommodation was the perfect accommodation while staying in Lisbon for our family of 5. It is centrally located and yet very quiet. In a few minutes on foot to Rossio, the place with stops by Metro, various bus lines and the Aerobus. Just around the corner there is a small shop that sells everything for your daily needs. The apartment is well furnished and clean. We can recommend this apartment highly.
Die Unterkunft war für unsere 5-köpfige Familie die ideale Unterkunft während dem Aufenthalt in Lissabon. Sie ist zentral gelegen und dennoch sehr ruhig. In wenigen Minuten erreicht man zu fuss Rossio, den Platz mit Haltestellen von Metro, verschiedenen Busslinien und des Aerobus. Gleich um die Ecke gibt es einen kleinen Laden, der alles für den täglichen Bedarf verkauft. Die Wohnung ist gut eingerichtet und sauber. Wir können diese Wohnung sehr empfehlen.

We had a very pleasant stay in Lisbon. The host was very nice and helpful. The appartment was spacious and clean. The beds were good and the kitchen was fully equipped. The only downsides were the ants inside in the appartment (so put out the garbage immediately) and that we had to get up 187 steps to get to the appartment because it is located quite high in the city. Nevertheless this was a good excercise and we didn't really mind it. We would definitely recommend the appartment!
The apartment is located in an alley entrance scares, but it is a quiet neighborhood near the center but you have to climb many stairs to reach (all Lisbon is).
It was not clean and one of the bathrooms had no window and smelled.
In the living room there is a sofa which makes it a bit uncomfortable. The two bedrooms well.
The person who greeted us was very friendly.
El apartamento está situado en un callejón que de entrada asusta, pero es un barrio tranquilo y cercano al centro aunque hay que subir muchas escaleras hasta llegar (toda Lisboa es así).
No estaba limpio y uno de los baños no tenía ventana y olía mal.
En la sala-comedor no hay sofá por lo que resulta un poco incómodo. Los dos dormitorios bien.
La persona que nos recibió era muy amable.
