|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
Like jazz? Then we think you’ll love the location of this apartment, beside one of Europe's most famous Jazz clubs, the Hot Klube de Portugal. And if jazz isn’t your thing, how about taking a short stroll down town to one of the city’s fado bars. And when you’re feeling tired, head back to your charming and comfy apartment for a good night’s sleep.
Students and artists of all types get together in this area to let their hair down at night. The Bairro Alto is the epicentre of the city’s alternative scene.
But it’s not all about nightlife. The day is the perfect time to check out the views from the Mirador de São Pedro de Alcântara or have a glass of port at the Solar do Vinho.
Or head to the Príncipe Real where you’ll found gay-friendly bars, galleries and a park with exotic plants.
The apartment is really nice, comfortable, has the same look as on published photos. Kitchen is very well equipped. Good location, close to the park with children's playground, 24/7 taxi service, funicular and beautiful view point. Mauro (the landlord) was friendly, very helpful, gave many useful information. 1. The furnace (boiler) is very bad quality- cannot manage to heat radiators and water at the same time. So if we wanted to have warm in the apartment there was no hot water (to shower, wash the dishes)and vice versa which is quite annoying if you have small children and if you stay at the apartment in the late fall as we did. Also the last evening the pipe for the hot water at the boiler broke and as we didn't notice it immediately the water was running down the building. Neighbours started to bang on the front door (also woke up the kids!) to turn it off... at the end they were nice and helped us to fix it until the morning.
2. The electricity is also bad and would need repair- at one point there were several lights turned on + cooker was working and the electricity went out- complete black out. We fixed the problem by ourselves as we immediately tought that this might be the problem. Once we turned on only few lights it was OK.
3. The first impression about the apartment and its character was lost once we noticed hair in the bath tub, on the tiles in the bathroom, toilet seat. The floor could be cleaner, the holder for spoons, knives and forks was really disgusting and I washed it immediatly (and from there on also all the dishes and utensils that we were using). Also cobwebs were hanging from the ceiling in the living room.
4. There are stairs leading towards the building were the apartment is located- we didn't know that and as we had a stroller it was quite a challenge to carry it every time we left the apartment... additionally to the stairs within the building (we knew that there was no lift in the building so that's OK). We wish they warned us about that as we might consider taking different apartment as there were a lot of stairs! (good exercise though:)
5. We couldn't find any bakery/grocery near by. Only one small food shop with few little things. Would be handy to have a grocery closer to the building...
Everything was clean and exactly the same as shown in the pictures. Excellent location. I would recomend this apartment.
La decoración y la ubicación. Baño con lavabos muy pequeños y accesorios insuficientes, problemas con el desagüe de la ducha.El DVD no funcionaba. Muchas hormigas en la cocina y baños. El congelador del frigorifico inutilizable ya que estaba repleto de hielo.
Sehr gute Lage, relativ kurze Wege zu den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln.
Städtische Atmosphäre im besten Sinn.
Authentische Stadtwohnung. Die Baustelle gegenüber (ab 6 bis 7 h Baulärm), dürfte aber zu Schulbeginn 2011 vorbei gewesen sein.
La decoración Falta de limpieza, mucho polvo, cubo basura roto, ruedas muebles baño rotas, soporte papel higiénico roto, enchufe lampara noche roto, soporte mango ducha roto, no hay enchufe en un baño, falta de trapos cocina. Por lo tanto falta de mantenimiento del equipamiento del apartamento.
The flat is conveniently located in the city in the barrio alto, within a walking distance to the chiado and city center. No bad surprises compared to the pictures, the flat is really nice, clean and well equiped. Welcome was very nice. Unfortunately there was some refurbishment work in the building that week which where already planned. We would have appreciated to be told before.
