Spacious fully optioned apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was excellent. We were met at our appointed time by the local manager, Christine, who outlined the facilities and made sure we were comfortable and provided the keys. The location was excellent, with clear instructions set out by the owner, and a copy of useful information, such as the location of the supermarket 300m away, suggestions for restaurants, and even the provision of wines.

Nice property with a good location. Has some noise issues that one would expect within a large city but nothing that bothered our stay.

Fabulous Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Richard was responsive to any questions I had while booking the trip. The apartment was true to the pictures. It was described as an architectural gem and we would all agree. Plenty of space for 4 adult travelers. Well located in the heart of the historical district of Lisbon. Well appointed kitchen. Nice selection of wine that you could purchase at cost. Good recommendations of local restaurants!

Great location, wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 1 week and found it an excellent choice. The location is terrific, right near the city centre, and walkable to many places. The apartment is very well kept and appointed, and was great to spend time in. The second bedroom gets some street noise, but the main bedroom is further away from the street and noise was not a problem for us. This is a carefully and thoughtfully designed apartment, and we highly recommend it.

Location

Nearest Airport
4.2 Miles
Lisbon Airport - Taxi 15-20 euros
Car: not necessary

The apartment is located in an area called Baixa - the historic center of the city. It sits in a valley/plateau that lies between two hills. To the East of the apartment lies St George's Castle (the elevator is 200 meters away) and the historic but very hilly Alfama district (the oldest remaining part of Lisbon and the Moorish center with some great architectural examples). To the West of Baixa lies Chaido and Barrio Alto. Chaido has many international designer shops and Barrio Alto is the area where you will find over 100 bars & restaurants that pretty much runs all night long with a crowded and loud street life but fun to visit in the evening.

In Baixa you have the historic center that is being or has been renovated with many new boutique hotels, lots of outdoor restaurants and the new Design Museum (MUDE). There are also many shops (though not the exclusive designer stores that exist in Chiado). Each of these areas are very small in scale with their own unique character which makes walking around quite easy - though hilly in spots. You can walk from the East end (St George’s Tower) to the West Side (Barrio Alto) in 20-30 mins.

Santa Justa Elevator:

One of the city's best-loved landmarks and also known as the 'Elevator of Carmo,' this extraordinary structure was built at the turn of the century by the Portugal-born French architect Raoul de Mesnier du Ponsard (an apprentice of Gustave Eiffel, explaining the structure's similarities to Paris' Eiffel Tower), to connect downtown to Bairro Alto (the lowest and highest points of the city).
