Overview

About the property

Bright Flat with Wide Terrace and River Views, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Living room, 1 Bath

This elegant, spacious and sunny apartment with a large terrace (55 mq) and extensive views over the old city and down to the harbour is located in one of historic Lisbon’s most glamorous neighbourhoods – the Chiado.

This is what has always been considered the noblest part of the city, with its quiet streets and squares lined with imposing mansions, museums, churches, art galleries, bookshops, and the odd government ministry. The nearby (less than a minute walk) Praça de Camões and Largo do Chiado (and its cafés Brasileira and Benard) are privileged meeting points for Lisboetas and tourists alike, who are drawn by the impressive concentration of theatres, exclusive shops and high quality restaurants.

The 28 tram stops around the corner from the flat, and it is not much farther to the Bica cable-car (elevador) or the metro. A ten-minute walk down the hill brings you to the Cais do Sodre train station (Estoril-Cascais line) or the ferry for trips across the Tagus.

World-famous theaters such as the Trindade or São Carlos Opera are close by, as is the more exuberant and down-to-earth Barrio Alto neighborhood, where the streets become narrower and the nightlife more animated. This is the true home of the soulful fado music of old Lisbon, with a wide variety of venues quite literally at your fingertips.

Natural sunlight thus floods the apartment in both morning and afternoon.

The master bedroom has a double bed, while the second bedroom is provided with two single beds. Extra bed linen and towels are available. Baby bed, high chair and other child facilities can be provided on request at no extra charge.

The kitchen is fully equipped and supplied with all the culinary basics (coffee, tea, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and other spices, etc.). If you prefer not to use the cooker, you can always try the barbecue grill on the terrace (charcoal provided).

Supermarket, grocer’s, bakery, newsstand, cafés, hairdressers, banks, etc. are all very close indeed. Also, two covered parking garages are located within 100 metres.

Nearby is the Santa Catarina belvedere, with outstanding views over the harbour, while a short walk through Bairro Alto leads to the pretty Principe Real park, which has a play area for children.

The 28 tram takes about 10 minutes in one direction from the flat to reach the equally romantic Estrêla Garden. In the other direction it passes through the Baixa shopping district before winding through the old neighbourhoods around St. George’s Castle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

for the second time we spent a week in this apartment



wy two times, and maybe more ?



first because of the situation, less than 100 meters away from the Praça Luis de Camoes and from the metro station Baixa-Chiado



the apartment is also charming, with nice and plain furniture



and, last but not least, a 60 m2 terrace with a diagonal vue to the Ponte 25 de Abril"

Large and interesting apartment, recommended

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights in February and loved the apartment.

Building works next door worried me at first, but proved to not be a problem.

the apartment was much quieter at night than I had expected and we slept well in a very comfy large bed.

the sun room and terrace were both great for eating and relaxing. The bathroom worked fine.

The kitchen was well equipped with good pans and sharp knives and all that we needed.

The building was very secure.

The area is very central and interesting, we got the metro from the airport that worked out to be be very easy. We used the Bica elevator a lot! just round the corner.

Alberto was helpful and interesting when he showed us round the apartment and ordered a taxi to take us to the airport.

The HomeAway description and pictures are very accurate and should help you decide if it is your type of apartment.

We thought it was great

Spacious and Central

  • 4 of 5

We stayed Jan 26 - Feb 1st, 2018. As others have mentioned, the apartment has "old world charm".. and all that space feels quite luxurious in a busy, crowded city. Alberto was very accommodating, and went out of his way to ensure we had a comfortable stay, by providing an extra heater and dealing with a slow shower drain. A couple of items I'd like to see installed would be a hand-held shower head, and a full-length mirror in the master bedroom for ladies getting ready for a night out. I'd also recommend a couple more English TV channels be made available for guests.

We enjoyed walking and exploring the neighbourhood, and found some really great restaurants nearby. The only downside was periodic construction noise. There is major restoration work being done on a historic building next door. When the workmen are sandblasting, the noise and resulting dust is hard to ignore. Hopefully, this phase of construction will be over soon; but it's something to be aware of when booking. I would stay here again, and recommend it to others.

Spacious, Elegant and Well-located

  • 4 of 5

This very spacious apartment is tastefully furnished and decorated, and very well-equipped. The host, Alberto, is extremely accommodating and helpful. The only drawback for us, who are in our late 70's, was that the apartment is on the 3rd floor (actually 4th, in North American terms), and there is no lift. There is an excellent Indian restaurant right next door, and several other restaurants, a supermarket, green grocer and butcher just around the corner. Highly recommended.

Lisbon charm.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Lisbon and in our apartment in Barrio Alto. The apartment is spacious with multiple rooms and a cozy atmosphere. The very large terrace opened up to the sights and sounds of the city and a beautiful view of the Tagus River. We enjoyed our meals in the sunroom. The kitchen is well equipped, and we enjoyed cooking and being with our family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Alberto was a wonderful host and accommodated our needs as we explored the country. I recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to enjoy the city and feel at home. Thanks, Alberto!

Great View in the heart of everything

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is very much like pictured. Alberto met us close to the time of our plane arriving and was helpful with giving a complete overview of the apartment. The bed was very very comfortable. The water stayed warm and had good pressure. There was a lot of light throughout but the apartment could also be made very dark for sleeping. The kitchen was well equipped and the sun room and balcony provided excellent at home eating spaces. The Indian restaurant next door was very good! This house made the trip very enjoyable and was so convenient to everything!

Location

Car: not necessary

Recently renovated, this large two-bedroom apartment (110 square meters) is fully furnished and equipped with all the amenities needed to ensure that no matter how short your stay, you will feel very much 'at home' in the heart of the Portuguese capital.

It is located on the third floor (no elevator) of a residential building around the corner from the Ministry of the Economy. The main façade faces east with several large windows opening into the main living room, a smaller sitting room and the master bedroom, while the west façade opens onto the terrace (50 square meters), with direct access through the kitchen or sun living room.

Natural sunlight thus floods the apartment in both morning and afternoon.

The master bedroom has a double bed, while the second bedroom is provided with two single beds. Extra bed linen and towels are available. Baby bed, high chair and other child facilities can be provided on request at no extra charge.

The kitchen is fully equipped and supplied.
