Olarias House-Cozy

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was very clean and cozy and just as the pictures show. We were very comfortable for our 10 day stay in Lisbon. Gustavo was great with suggestions for food/roof top bars etc. Some missed communication with arrival and departure. Outside the apartment was all under construction. There was no nice area to sit outside and relax as shown in the photos as scaffolding and construction mess was everywhere. I am sure it will be nice again once this construction passes. This whole area of town is under construction Monday through Friday adding a lot of noise and filth. There are other areas of Lisbon undergoing renovations as well... and had we known we would have waited to visit this city once the main construction was done as it was a bit of a nuisance. I would however recommend this flat once the construction was completed!

Big disappointment!

  • 1 of 5

The apartment was a big disappointment. Yes, the pictures on the site are correct, but when we arrived we were shocked; it looked like a slum! A piece of bare ground, full of litter.

The "terrace" is a part of the street before the front door. Next to it, a building is being renovated. So, loud noises and dust make this "terrace" unusable and the living inside the apartment impossible from 8:00 till 19:00.

Never book this apartment!

Juste parfait 👌

  • 5 of 5

Dans un quartier typique, un petit havre de paix pour se relaxer après de bonnes journées de visites ! Propre et confortable, un deux pièces vraiment charmant, à deux pas de deux beaux points de vues sur la ville, du métro et du château Sao Jorge.

Les propriétaires sont disponibles, aimables et accueillants, et les recommandations de Rita sont incontournables !

Endroit où séjourner sans hésitations !

Eccellente sistemazione

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato 4 notti nell'alloggio di Gustavo. Vicinissimo

a tutto: Metro, Ristoranti, Centro Movida. Ottima connessione WIFI.

La cosa più importante però è la massima cura della pulizia riscontrata nell'alloggio di Gustavo.

Complimenti veramente!

Mouraria is where the Moors were allowed to live after the conquest of Lisbon in 1147 before being expelled together with the Jews in 1497. Little survives from that period except for traces of the medieval wall but this curiously remains the most multiethnic neighborhood in the city. The majority of the foreign population is from Bangladesh, followed by immigrants from China, India, Pakistan, and Mozambique.

It's nonetheless a very authentically Lisbon neighborhood known as the birthplace of Fado. It was here that the first great Fado singer lived in the 1800s, the legendary Severa who fell in love with a count and took the music of the people to the aristocracy. Mouraria life has always been marked by the sound of the guitars, the sound of taverns, brothels music, glasses of wine between friends and Fado. And it’s still there. But this identity joined many others identities and today, rising from the Mall of Mouraria, there is Cape Verdean music, indian flavors, Brazilian rhythms, Pakistani flavors, Mozambican dishes and Asian mills.

It had become a very rundown neighborhood until major renovations starting in 2009 put it back on the map. It now attracts for its mini-'Chinatown,' for the kiosks on Martim Moniz Square serving foods from all over the world, and for the cleaned-up Intendente Square which hides one of the most beautiful tiled façades in the city.

Another hidden treasure is the interior of the forms “Colégio dos Meninos Órfãos” orphanage on “Rua da Mouraria”, now divided into several public services but with a staircase covered with tile panels from the 1700s depicting passages from the old and new testaments.

Also worth a look is the curious medieval house (one of the oldest in Lisbon) on Largo da Achada behind the Church of St. Christopher, with gothic doors and windows.
