Trendy Charm in Historical Center
- Family/child friendly
|Address||Travessa Condessa do Rio, 1200 Lisbon, 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. For top comfort, the house is best fitted for up to 3 adults or a couple with 2 children.
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. Two large windows in the living room (from where you can see the river) let in the famous Lisbon light.
The apartment comprises a bright living room, and is decorated with a simple, beautiful, perfect style. The living room is equipped with a double sofa bed that fits extra 2 persons, a vintage design arm chair, a dining area with vintage table and chairs, and a flat screen TV. The bedroom has a comfortable beautiful double bed, bedside tables and a giamt map on the wall.
The kitchen is fully equipped including washing machine (not a dryer), microwave, coffee maker and kettle. The bathroom with a walking in shower, toilet, a sink, a small shelf and mirror offer everything you need for personal care. Clean towels, linens and sheets are provided on arrival.
The apartment is on the 3rd 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 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 on 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 ..., 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.
Nearby you will find grocery and fruit store at 120 m (down the street), supermarket: 500 m and a ATM machine in 500m.
Arriving Via Airport, by Taxi – 15 € /20€ max including luggage tax; 15/20 minutes or Airport Bus – 3,5€ up to 30 minutes – Hop off in Cais Sodré and then 15 minutes up hill.
If you are arriving there by car, attention, 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.
Enjoy your stay in this wonderful city! I hope to see you soon!

Reviews of this property
The apartment is nice, well furnished and centrally located.
The apartment was very clean.
Internet was ok.
Alexandre was nice and caring.
Wir waren zu dritt Ende April in diesem Appartement. Es ist hervorragend gelegen, sauber und nett eingerichtet. Die Gastgeber, Carolina und Alex sprechen sehr gut Englisch, sind überaus zuvorkommend und nett. Besonders wertvoll sind die Tips von beiden. Wir hatten sehr nette Tage in Lissabon, wir würden wieder dieses Appartement nehmen. Allerdings sollten die Gäste gut zu Fuß sein, weil das Appartement im 3. Stock liegt und kein Aufzug vorhanden ist. Dass gilt allerdings für Lissabon generell.
Excellent choice to explore Lisboa, beautiful living room, quiet sleeping room, fully equipped kitchen and bath - and great hosts, Alex and Carolina picked us up after we got lost with the car, prepared tickets and even a mobile phone, checked our conditions twice during our stay ... and are simply very friendly, helpful guys. We will come again.
Perfect place to discover Lisbon. Perfect hosts, very, very attentive and helpful. We can recommend the apartment unrestricted.
Alexandre and Carolina are very friendly and committed hosts who provided lots of helpful information and great recommendations to us.
The apartment is perfectly located in a quiet street in the very center of Lisboa closed to countless lovely restaurants, bars and all shops you might need as a self-caterer. The interior decoration of the apartment is the most beautiful we ever saw in a holyday flat and from a hair-dryer to kitchen gadgets u'll probably find everything you need. We'd be glad to stay in this apartment should we ever make it again to this stunning city.
This was our first booking at Wimdu: we had the best hosts we could imagine! Apart from that, which was the apartment very central and quiet and also catched a very nice, we were by Alexandre and his sister Caroline welcomed very warmly with cheese, bread, and a typical Lisbon cherry brandy and cold drinks!. We have felt ourselves very well and also get lots of tips from both, such as where we can eat in the area. The restaurant suggestions were more typical portuguese and no typical tourist restaurants. We have felt ourselves very well, thanks to our lovely host! Heike and Peter from Cologne
Dies war unsere erste Buchung bei wimdu: wir hatten die besten Gastgeber, die wir uns vorstellen konnten!! Abgesehen davon, das das Apartment sehr zentral und ruhig lag und zudem auch noch sehr schön war, wurden wir von Alexandre und seiner Schwester Caroline sehr herzlich begrüßt mit Käse, Brot, und einem für Lissabon typischen Kirschschnaps sowie Kaltgetränken!. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und haben von den beide auch viele Tipps erhalten, z.B. Wo wir in der Umgebung essen können. die Restauranttipps waren eher typisch portugiesisch und keine typischen Touristenlokale. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt dank unserer netten Gastgeber!!! Heike und Peter aus Köln
The stay at Alexander's an Carolina's apartment was really nice. The apartment is located very centrally and I could reach everything by foot, also lots of bakeries, bars etc in the area. Thanks also for the cherries and the cheese ;))
Our stay at Alexandre´s and Carolina´s apartment in Lisbon was perfect from start till finish. Our hosts were very helpful with everything from ordering taxis, till giving great advice, what to see and where to go out and dine.
The Apartment fulfilled our expectations and then some. Very trendy, clean and central near everything.
We will be back for sure.
