Overview

About the property

Bright and spacious right in the centre of Lisbon overlooking Rossio Square

This bright and modern apartment is a spacious (60m2) 1-bedroom property located right in the centre of Lisbon overlooking the Rossio square. It has been completely renovated and refurbished recently and enjoys lots of natural light.

A double sofa that converts into two beds in the living room means that up to 4 guests can stay here comfortably.

The living room has a truly marvelous view over central Lisbon, and includes a sofa-bed and other 3 sofas.

The kitchen is open to the living room and is fully equipped with all the modern facilities you need to cater and cook for yourself - washing machine, dish washer, gas oven and stove, microwave and fridge with freezer, as well as all the necessary cutlery and crockery.

The bedroom has a large double bed (140 cm wide), and external windows to let in the light and air. It has plenty of storage space and bedside tables with lamp.

There is a clean and modern bathroom with bathtub and a small window.

The apartment has a good temperature both during Winter and Summer. Nevertheless, in the wintertime the entire space is heated with two electric heaters, if needed. During Summer, the windows at each side of the apartment can be left open to keep the accommodation cool as the breeze passes through the entire property, and a fan is available.

Cable TV (100 channels), free high-speed Wi-Fi Internet (30 mbps), CD/DvD/Radio/MP3 player are all available and provided.

This apartment is located in the Pena district, very close to the central Rossio square, Baixa and Chiado area.

The street of the apartment has no cars and is a dead end, guaranteeing peaceful and relaxing time.

The main feature of Pena is that it is a plateau, from which two main slopes descend, facing Martin Moniz and Avenida da Liberdade. It begins at the north-east of Rossio and extends to Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, commonly known by Campo de Santana. The streets on the two slopes are twisting and irregular, leading to many beautiful alleys and side streets.

There are many small cafés and restaurants here, and it is just a short walk to the major tourist areas of Baixa, Rossio and the Praça do Comércio, with a lovely riverfront area.

This neighborhood is also very close to the famous Bairro Alto, a nightlife area, which can be reached after walking past Rossio or by taking the Elevador da Glória, the oldest funicular in Lisbon.

Sintra village is definitely worth a visit and very easy to reach as the train station with direct trains to Sintra (20 minutes) is just 200 mts away from the apartment.

Cascais village is also beautiful and has nice beaches. Really recommended. You can reach it in a fantastic train trip (25 mins) close to the sea. The train station (Cais do Sodré) to Cascais is just 1,5 kms away from the apartment.

There are many transport options nearby. The metro stations (different lines) are at 100 mts as well as buses, trams and trains. Most touristic and popular tram/bus routes depart from Rossio/Praça da Figueira Squares, which are 100 mts away from the apartment.

Come and Enjoy!

Excellent apartment with a magnificent view

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this apartment, it's very central & has everything you may need. Close to everything but quite at night. Ana was always available to assist. Would highly recommend this apartment.

Perfectly positioned, lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We spent three nights at this lovely apartment and were instantly wowed by its location. Each morning is a joy to see Lisbon spread before you from the living room window. Ana was extremely helpful upon arrival and we followed most of her tips for places to visit and eat. Thank you again. The apartment has everything you need if you want to cook but really there is no need with the close proximity of so many great restaurants. We would highly recommend both Lisbon and the apartment to anyone. A joy.

Fantastic location in a well equipped, immaculately clean studio flat

  • 5 of 5

We are a mature couple, 65+, who travel a great deal. We spent 5 days in Lisbon after 5 days in Porto. We were made more than welcome by Ana who came to let us in to the flat and explain the facilities and location. Thank you Ana! The view is tremendous, transport, shops and restaurants are all within 5 mins + walk. Yes some are uphill, but think of the benefits of the exercise. The Portugese are a kind and polite people, Andre has been very helpful over a mislaid mobile, and it was a pleasure to visit. Much has been written about the apartment in other reviews and there is no need to repeat it all here. Don't hesitate to book this apartment; it is a gem.

A great spot with a great view

  • 5 of 5

This Feburary was the second time we were in Lisbon, and yes, sure we came back to stay at this apartment, for many good reasons.

1. We know we can trust Mr. Coelho, the owner of this property, & his manager Mrs. Quintino. They are very informative and very responsive in providing helps.

2. The unforgettable view of Rossio Square from this apartment. Truly it makes Lisbon even more beautiful and attractive.

3. Location, location, location. Of course. Everything that is essential is within 5 min. walk ( Includes the blue and green lines metro stations )

This apartment is situated so very conveniently for your moods.

Then, it is clean and well equipped - for a long stay (like months),short stay or a weekend get away!

Mr. Coelho, thanks for renting the apartment to us. We enjoy Lisbon so much more just by staring out from the window.

P.S. tips for natas lover: you don't have to go to Belam to get good natas if you have a tight schedule. Fabrica Natas on Restaurado Square is a very good place for enjoying it too.

Great location, amazing views, comfortable sunny apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for five nights over Christmas and had a great time in this fantastic apartment. It's in a central, walkable area near lots of restaurants, sites, Rossio metro, and trams. Andre was responsive before we arrived, and Ana met us at the apartment as planned to show us the apartment. The kitchen's well-equipped (though we didn't use it much), the bed is comfortable, and there's plenty of hot water in the shower. We ate at some good local restaurants steps from the apartment, including Terras Minas Bistro (delicious Brazilian food), Verde Minho, and a cafe for morning coffee. We wished we could have stayed longer and would love to come back!

The main feature of Pena is that it is a plateau, from which two main slopes descend, facing Martin Moniz and Avenida da Liberdade. It begins at the north-east of Rossio and extends to Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, commonly known by Campo de Santana. The streets on the two slopes are twisting and irregular, leading to many beautiful alleys and side streets.

Being one of the oldest districts in Lisbon, one is overwhelmed by the diversity of its buildings, constructed in accordance with the successive types of architecture through centuries. Wrought iron balconies from the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries can be seen everywhere. In constant dialogue with the wrought iron are the glazed tiles of the façades - a style reportedly brought from Brazil after the 16th century.

Pena is a quiet neighbourhood where one can find the Italian and German embassies, the birthplace of Amália Rodrigues and the place where Luis de Camões is supposed to have lived his last days (Calçada de Santana, nº 139)

It is very close to the famous Bairro Alto, a nightlife area, which can be reached after walking down Rossio or by taking the Elevador do Lavra, the oldest funicular in Lisbon. This 120 year old elevator goes every 15 minutes down to Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, the location of many excellent fish restaurants as recommended by many city guides.

Sintra village is definitely worth a visit and very easy to reach as the train station with direct trains to Sintra (20 minutes) is just 200 mts away from the apartment.

Cascais village is also beautiful and has nice beaches. Really recommended. You can reach it in a fantastic train trip (25 mins) close to the sea. The train station (Cais do Sodré) to Cascais is just 1,5 kms away from the apartment.

Come and enjoy!
