Spacious flat located in the picturesque Bairro Alto neighborhood, 2 double bedrooms, offers typical old street views from the small balcony, recently refurbished by ourselves with lots of dedication.
The sofa bed in the living room provides space for two more people. The layout is in the old Portuguese style of the late 1800s, so the bedrooms get their natural light from windows into the main living area and hall, rather than outside windows.
Both rooms have large double beds, fresh sheets and towels provided to all guests.
Bairro Alto is known for it's restaurants, bars and fado houses. Here you can enjoy a walk through the old cobbled streets, eat proper traditional portuguese food and listen to some fado. In the evening, especially during the weekends, the streets are full of a mix of locals and tourists enjoying food, drinks and sun in the warm Portuguese weather. The flat is best suited to those who want to be right in the center of Lisbon in a lively (and sometimes noisy) neighborhood with lots of options for eating, shopping and drinking.
The double glazed windows help keep the noise out during the busy weekend days but please note it's a loud neighborhood.
The flat is located on the 3rd floor with no lift access, but lots of natural sunlight despite the charming narrow streets. NO AIR CONDITIONER.
