Amazing in every possible way -- a fantastic apartment in a terrrific area of Lisbon
Our family (2 adults, 3 children) spent two weeks in Portugal, the first week of which was in Lisbon. This apartment turned out to be fantastic in every way.
First of all, the location cannot be beat: You're in the middle of Baxia, literally upstairs from one of the central streets in Lisbon. Cafes, touristy trinkets, ice cream, and clothing are all seconds away. Street musicians playing outside of those cafes can be entertaining -- but if you find them annoying, the windows are surprisingly effective at keeping them out. We went to the supermarket at least once per day; walking slowly, it took us 5 minutes to get there.
We took several day trips out of Lisbon, usually be train. The apartment is a 3-5 minute walk from two main Metro stations. We also walked from the Alfama neighborhood back to our place. And from apartment to some major parks and attractions.
If you rent a car, then this apartment might be somewhat problematic, simply because it's only for pedestrians, and I'm not sure how much local parking there is. But if you're like us, and mostly rely on public transportation, taxis, and walking, then you'll be more than fine. We did rent a car for one day; some rental agencies have offices a very close walk from the apartment, but others are a 40-minute metro ride away at the airport.
The apartment itself is stunningly beautiful, very clean, and well taken care of. There are two bathrooms (good for families), air conditioners in every room (good for the summer), and a large, well-stocked kitchen that we frequently used to make meals. We also used the washing machine and dryer quite a bit, allowing us to travel with relatively few clothes.
The beds were comfortable, and the towels were fluffy. We were given more than enough soap and shampoo for the week, along with starter tablets for the dishwasher and washing machine.
The apartment came with a very helpful, useful booklet that told us everything we needed to know. But beyond that, Rosa (the house manager) gave us a thorough introduction -- and when we had a small problem, we reached her right away, and got a quick, helpful answer. Rosa and Jose (who manages the property) have a great deal of experience renting to tourists, and it shows.
We have rented numerous apartments over the years, and this was the best. We very heartily recommend Lisbon as a destination, and the CR3 apartment for when you go there.
Lisboa is the capital of Portugal and home to about 2.5 million inhabitants. Lisbon was the capital of a large empire encompassing Brazil and large areas of Africa, as well as small possessions in India and China. The rich architectural registry is a result of this history and influences, as is its food, remarkably different than north Europe's. After the devastating tsunami and earthquake of 1755, the are today know as Baixa was wiped out and subsequently rebuilt with the first grid patter in Portugal. The building was from the subsequent reconstruction and feature the pombaline cage which confer enormous resistance and flexibility to the structure.
The building is in close proximity of key historic sights in Lisbon- it will enable you to discover the city on foot- Moorish Castle/Alfama(10min); Praça Comercio/Praca Figueira/ Rossio all within 3-5 min; Bairro Alto within 15-20min on foot. Iconic n28 tram is 2 blocks away transportation- 3 subway/tube stations within 5 min, train to beaches/ fishing village of Cascais within 15min on foot (c. Sodre), train to delightful Sintra within 5 min (Rossio) and cross Tagus/Tejo boats within 5 min. Direct airport transfer bus stops 1 block away. Multitude of restaurants and shops right outside
Running/jogging- try the river front with the iconic Cais das Colunas (5 min away, jog in river front till Belem or even Algés or as far as you feel like.
Night out: head out to Alfama on foot and enjoy lively bars. If you prefer Bairro Alto- with a somewhat younger crowd, a multitude of bars, restaurants and theaters will satisfy every taste. A popular area for dinning is Docas, and there are a number of interesting bars riverside on Cais do Sodre. Another popular disco is close to Santa Apolonia- Lux.
The vibrant gay scene is concentrated around Bairro Alto and Principe Real (10-15min on foot from the apartment). There you will find a number of bars and clubs (travessa da Espera; Construction, Trumps; Finalmente to name a few). Lisboa is a very tolerant city in spite of strong catholicism
