About the property

1 bedroom apartment, sleeps up to 5 p. in Central Lisbon, at Pombaline Downtown

This city centre modern apartment is set in a recently rebuild building in the old historic Lisbon.

The apartment has a privileged situation in the heart of the cultural, historical and elegant district Baixa Pombalina, very close to several museums, operas, theaters and churches, facing the new Vincci Baixa Hotel(****).

This bright, daylight filled, 6th floor apartment is located in one of the most important streets representative of the emblematic Pombaline architecture in Lisbon.

The accommodation comprises one bedroom with a double bed, a living room with dinning and sitting areas, a full bathroom and a fully equipped kitchenette. In the living room there is a double sofa bed and an individual sofa bed. The apartment has WiFi free Internet access and central heating in all rooms.

This location offers easy access by foot to the airport buses stop (50m) and subway (Baixa/Chiado or Comércio station-200m). We will welcome you with relevant tourist info.

Pombaline Architecture: The Pombaline Baixa, is the elegant district, primarily constructed after the 1755 Lisbon earthquake. It takes its name from Marquis of Pombal, the Prime Minister of Joseph I of Portugal who took the lead in ordering the rebuilding of Lisbon.

The Marquis of Pombal imposed strict conditions on rebuilding the city, and the current grid pattern strongly differs from the organic street plan that characterised the district before the Earthquake. The Pombaline Baixa is one of the first examples of earthquake-resistant construction.

The apartments building was completely renewed in 2008 but the old façade was maintained as well as the portal of entry and the old tiles at the entrance.

Awesome Experience

  • 4 of 5

My girlfriend and I stayed at Maria’s place for 4 nights in May and absolutely loved it. Her place was clean, modern, close to transportation, and within walking distance to everything. Maria was extremely helpful as she met us upon arrival and gave us directions to nearby sites. We informed her of our intermarry and she told us about some must see sites and they truly added onto our experience. She also gave us her personal number in case we had any questions while traveling Portugal. She made us feel right at home!!

Each morning we went a French bakery around the corner, la Boulangerie on Rua da Madalena for the best breakfast.

Lisbon is a beautiful city and we are definitely looking to return.

Thank you, Maria!!!

Excellent apartment with unbeatable location

  • 5 of 5

We (two adults and three children) had the pleasure of staying for two nights at this beautiful apartment. The apartment is cosy, clean and comfortable, with fresh and modern, Scandinavian looking decor. The appliances are very good. We found the apartment a little hot at night, as it is on the top floor. There is some street noise, but the main bedroom is surprisingly quiet.

The location is very good in the heart of Baixa Chiado. There are numerous nice cafes nearby, and it is very easy to explore the city on foot or go on a tram ride. We arrived late on a Saturday evening and could hear some fado music from our window - lovely! Maria, the owner, provided excellent customer service both before our stay and during it. She was very flexible with our arrival time and had kindly provided some basic groceries for us.

I would recommend this apartment to everyone: a lovely place in charming Lisbon!

El apartamento de María es genial. Está en una situación inmejorable, super céntrico, realmente una situación privilegiada. Sólo tienes que doblar la esquina para coger un tranvía ó el aerobus que te trae y te lleva al aeropuerto. A pocos pasos tienes el metro y toda la zona está llena de tiendas, pastelerías, etc. Justo al lado de la puerta de entrada hay una tienda que vende productos alimenticios artesanos y unos pasos más hacia delante hay una cerveceria con un personal muy simpático y agradable.

El apartamento está limpísimo y es super acogedor. No le falta el más mínimo detalle. Tiene hasta un buen secador de pelo (así que no os llevéis el vuestro y dejad sitio en la maleta para otras cosas..) plancha, lavadora-secadora e incluso seguros para los cajones por si van niños pequeños...María piensa realmente en todo!

Más que la dueña del apartamento parece una persona con la que has hecho una buena amistad. De verdad que es una persona sumamente encantadora y amable. Ella os informará de todo lo que necesitéis saber desde el momento en que le mandéis el primer e-mail.

Si estáis leyendo esta opinión y estáis dudando entre varios apartamentos, no lo dudéis, elegid éste y acertaréis!!

María, te mandamos un abrazo muy fuerte!

Beautiful, cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment we stayed in was a very nice, cozy and relaxing - just like it is showed in the pictures. It is on the last floor in the center of Lisbon, easily to walk everywhere, also easy to get from the airport to the apartment by using Shuttle Bus. All the necessary equipment for an apartment was provided, the apartment was very clean, well maintained - even left an impression that we are the first guests there ever!

The only thing I would like to say is that I don't think the apartment is suitable for 5 people - there are two beds, one is single, the other one is double; also the space is more suitable for a couple or a small family.

Maria (the owner) gave an excellent service - not only she very quickly responded to all of our questions related to the apartment, but she also knew answers to our tourist questions - where to rent a bike, where to go listen to some Fado, how to get to different places etc. Couldn't have wished for a better service.

The apartment definitely made our stay in Lisbon as comfortable as possible!

Great place

  • 4 of 5

RIght in the middle of town. Marias flat was ultra clean, very comfortable and we were made very welcome. The bed was comfy. The kitchen was well equipped and good for our needs. The flat was clearly very secure.

Possible down sides, you are right in the middle of town so do hear some background noise, but you are on the sixth floor. For the location that does not seem unreasonale.
