About the property

Bright apartment, recently redecorated, forming a marvellously lit space

A superb loft-style apartment and urban retreat ideally located in the historic heart of downtown Lisbon that offers comfort and charm with breathtaking views from its terrace. Selected by France 2 TV and German Nido magazine as the best apartment in Lisbon for families!

This bright, always spotlessly clean, two-bedrooms apartment provides an incredibly comfortable urban living space, one that, so calming and idyllic, feels almost entirely removed from the bustling historic city centre but a few floors below. The bedroom upstairs is the kids' favourite room with its sloping ceilings and playing area, and features a comfortable double bed and a fantastic view over the Castle and downtown’s vibrant rooftops. The bathroom has a bathtub and its walls are decorated with hand painted tiles from early 20th century, the kitchen is fully equipped and the living room furnished in the utmost comfort.

You will be amazed with the terrace and its absolutely breathtaking 360º view over downtown: Rossio square, Augusta Street, Santa Justa Lift, Terreiro do Paço, the Tagus River, to name but a few! It will offer you unforgettable breakfasts while enjoying the sunshine and romantic evenings with a glass of wine while enjoying the view.

If an urban, cultural adventure in Lisbon is what you’re after, this 65m2 apartment offers the absolute best in location, value and comfort for up to 4 guests with free high-speed wifi, cable TV, heaters and air conditioning.

Business travelers will find a great working space in the living area, including a comfortable sofa. Express check-in and check-out are available.

The street address is Rua Augusta, conveniently located at Baixa/Chiado at the major tourist streets of Lisbon and in-between Rossio and Terreiro do Paço.

Metro stations Baixa-Chiado and Rossio are down the block as are, amongst a selection of appealing shops, restaurants and cafes, many key-route bus and tram stops, and the train station.

I provide a personal guide and local tips. I also provide transfer from the airport (not included in rent price). I'm always available for any special request or assistance!

With so much waiting just outside the door, you are bound to spend your days exploring and enjoying Lisbon's magic. This fantastic apartment is the perfect place to relax and unwind in with a glass of wine at the terrace, after busy days in the remarkable city of Lisbon. To confirm all of this and much more, please take a minute to check all the reviews below from my previous guests, always enthusiastic about their stay!

CAUTION: the apartment is at the 5th floor and has NO lift, the ceiling is at 1.90m of height.

Great place to stay while in Lisbon -- as long as you don't mind the 5 flights of stairs!

  • 4 of 5

This is a nice apartment overlooking the pedestrian street of Ave Augusta -- a great location for visiting Lisbon! Just be aware of the 5 flights of stairs and the need for a fan to sleep comfortably in the heat of the summer. Once becoming accustomed to both, we enjoyed staying here!

Perfect Location!

  • 5 of 5

If you go to Lisbon and I hope you do this property is in the perfect location to see the city. Right in the middle of the pedestrian street and up 5 floors which allows for peace and quiet in the evening.

The apartment is well laid out with everything you need and the air conditioning worked beautifully in keeping it cool on the warm summer days.

The management team was very helpful in all ways including transport to the apartment from the airport.

As the description says there are low ceilings so if you are very tall this could be an issue, but it was not for us.

Thank you to Olivier for helping us with our stay! We loved Lisbon!

Wonderful stay in the heart of Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this charming apartment right in the heart of Baixa. Beautiful terrace overlooking the main street, right in the heart of the action. Location was great for sight-seeing and easy access to public transport. Be prepared to earn your gelato with the six-flight climb to the apartment, but it's well worth it!

Great apartment in a great location. It was easy to get to from the airport via the metro. And everything we needed or wanted to see was easily accessible from the apartment. The views of Rua Agusta from the balcony were fantastic. The windows keep out any noise from the street level and we didn't have any issues going to sleep. Olivier is a great host who proactively reached out before our trip and provided a tremendous amount of information and resources that allowed us to finalize our plans. Thanks Olivier!

Great apartment, fantastic location, balcony view

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment in an ideal location for a visit to Lisbon. Situated on Rua Augusta, with a wonderful sunlit balcony and view of the arch leading to the Praca do Comercio, we were really pleased with our choice.

Although a little apprehensive about the five flights of stairs, in practice we soon got used to entering through the small shop at ground level, and before we knew it, we were at the top of the building and back at our home away from home.

With everything that you need for a relaxing stay, whether eating in or out (at any of the many great restaurants within 10 minutes walk) we would heartily recommend this place to stay.

Just 5 minutes walk from Rossio station, and with easy access to Bairro Alto, Alfama, Chiado and the Castle, you are right in the centre of things. Do like we did and get up late one morning, before walking downstairs having a late breakfast right there in the middle of the street.

Olivier could not have been more helpful in providing us with all the information that we needed before our visit, and we would certainly recommend arranging to be collected at the airport by Marta, who gave us our own personal introduction to Lisbon.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
