There is a supermarket, plus several restaurants and bars within a 5-minute walk.
Sao Bento is less than 15 minutes walking distance from Cais do Sodré Train Station. The Metro there provides access to central Lisbon in 10 minutes. Lisbon International Airport is 8 km away.
If you walk 10 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, 10 minutes away, although one can easily walk to the main points of the city. Five 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.
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 (website hidden)ís 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.

Reviews of this property
Our hosts were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Although the apartment was really small, we had a wonderful time in Lisboa. The location is fantastic.
Very good location, professional host , friendly. The apartment was very very small, About 9M! And no bed ! only a oncomfortable sofa. The host bring us extra matrass, Thank you For that. Internet wifi was a disaster. Noisy street. Overall The location and host made iT bearable.
We were treated well. Location excellent near tram 28. A very nice Cape Verde restaurant in the neighborhood. The apartment is a bit small for two people but excellent for one person. The equipment is OK with stove, microwave and washing machine.

Vi blev väl bemötta. Läget utmärkt nära spårvagn 28. En mycket trevlig Kap Verde-restaurang i grannskapet. Lägenheten lite trång för två personer men utmärkt för en person. Utrustningen OK med spis, microvågsugn och tvättmaskin.

The best is the location, right next to the high neighborhood that has lots of atmosphere, there are also many cafes and restaurants, and is for anything downtown. The place was clean, the only q is a bit small, it is to go to sleep and little else, and the bathroom too. ..but us q served us and we were all day outside. The bed is a sofa-bed, q for many nights would not recommend it, otherwise fine.
Lo mejor es la situación, justo al lado del barrio alto que tiene mucho ambiente, tambien hay muchas cafeterias y restaurantes, y esta a nada del centro. El sitio estaba limpio, lo unico q es un poco pequeño, es para ir a dormir y poco mas, y el baño demasiado. ..pero a nosotros nos sirvio ya q estabamos todo el dia fuera. La cama es un sofa-cama, q para muchas noches no lo recomendaria, por lo demas bien.
Small apartment in a great location in the old town. Once we have moved from an apartment on the 1st floor in the 2nd floor (rooms at 1.EG was noisy and in need of renovation), we were very pleased. Antonio was very helpful and allowed us to move without problems.
Kleines Appartement in toller Lage inmitten der Altstadt. Nachdem wir von einer Wohnung in der 1. Etage in die 2.Etage umgezogen sind (Zimmer im 1.EG war hellhörig und renovierungsbedürftig) waren wir sehr zufrieden. Antonio war sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns den Umzug ohne Probleme ermöglicht.
Our Host was friendly and well organised, spoke excellent english.
The Bedroom was clean and very comfortable. We would like to suggest to install a couple of coat hooks, perhaps behind the door/wall. It was not too much of a problem as we only stayed for 3x nights and only had a couple of jackets to hang over the chairs. Also, to our slight annoyance, the communal hallway light shone into our bedroom and was switched on all night. We had to use a cushion to block-out the light.
The Bathroom was small, the wall opposite to the WC is too close to sit comfortably so, if you're tall person it will be a bit of a squeeze. We also noticed, there was a lack of storage space for our toiletries and no towel ring or hooks was installed to hang up our towels. The water tank is not big but has enough water for two persons to have a quick shower and everything worked perfectly. The door lock was safe but the keys were difficult to turn in order to open and close, only a strong pair of hands that can manage to pull the door while turning the keys. Apart from these minor issues we enjoyed our stay.
Everything went very well, they were punctual at the time of the handover checking that everything was ready and we got indications and even a map. The apartment was clean and full equip all. Despite being small it was fine, according to after seeing the photos expectations. Good location and the area was quiet to relax. By putting a but, the access stairs are quite steep Nostros although it was never a problem. We spent a very good morning, thank you very much for everything.
Todo ha ido muy bien, fueron puntuales a la hora de la entrega de llaves comprobando que todo estaba listo y nos dieron indicaciones e incluso un mapa. El apartamento estaba limpio y estaba equipadisimo de todo. A pesar de ser pequeño estaba bien, acorde a las expectativas después de haber visto las fotos. Buena ubicación y la zona era tranquila para descansar. Por ponerle un pero, las escaleras de acceso tienen bastante pendiente aunque para nostros nunca fue un problema. Hemos pasado unos dias muy buenos, muchas gracias por todo.
Very pleasant stay. Ideally it located next to the tram 28, near the upper quarter and Chiado.
Apartment small but has everything you need (fridge, microwave, and some staples).
We were very welcome and explained what we could visit etc.
I recommend it!
