About the property

Fantastic studio with a marvellously lit space with modern decor, prime location

Natural light floods through the windows of this studio's attic roof, reflecting off the clean, white furnishings and creating an airy, open space. With true character and style, this studio apartment is charming in its authenticity with a modern but distinctly rustic feel. Having recently been redecorated, well-lit and welcoming, there is such a rare attention to detail evident in the interior design and spotless cleanliness, that one feels immediately at home.

Located in the heart of downtown Lisbon and nestled among beautiful, historical sites, this studio is a true gem.

The apartment is open plan with charming sloping ceilings. The large double bed sits against an original, stone wall adding a rustic and traditional feel to the studio. The separate bathroom is sleek and chic, with a shower, WC & wash basin, the kitchenette is fully equipped and the living room furnished in the utmost comfort.

You will love its glamorous views over the Santa Justa lift, the Carmo Convent and downtown’s vibrant rooftops. It was exhibited in the Portuguese TV as a showcase for design!

If a romantic getaway is what you’re after, this 50m2 studio offers the absolute best in location, value and comfort for up to 2 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 dos Sapateiros, perfectly located at Baixa/Chiado between the major tourist streets of Lisbon: Rua Augusta, 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 studio is the perfect place to relax and unwind in 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 studio is on the 6th floor and has NO lift.

Great space & location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment looks exactly like pictured. It's in a VERY convenient location. Olivier and Marta were quick with their responses - I had one question a day during my stay. The carbon monoxide alarm started beeping because it needed a new battery. I reported it to Olivier and he changed it the very next day. I really enjoyed my stay at the apartment but will advise those who are out of shape that this is not the place for you as the walk up is serious. Also, if you're a person on the much heavier side, the shower may be too small for you as well. Overall, I found the place to be clean, comfortable, spacious, and in the perfect location. I would stay here again. Also note I was alone and I'm a small female but I felt very safe in the apartment building and in the neighborhood. Tip: do not buy anything from the pharmacy across the way - overpriced. I needed to buy more toothpaste and toilet paper (only 1 roll was provided) and I was advised by a local gift shop owner to walk over to the grocery story, Pingo Doce, for better prices.

Romantic indeed!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this charming attic studio! It is well-equipped (great to have a clothes washer), quiet, and in a perfect location. Very private, yet you emerge into one of the most happening areas of the city. Olivier provided great info for our trip and was terrific to work with. Do arrange to have Marta pick you up from the airport -- her welcome provided the warmest of introductions to Lisbon. Will definitely recommend Olivier's properties to others.

Nice Property, Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

The host was great! Location was perfect. Only drawback, there was no lift. However, we were warned. It is just a hassle to carry luggage up the stairs.

Perfect location ...highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfectly situated within walking distance of the metro, many sights, restaurants, etc while still being incredibly quiet. The apartment is well equipped with everything you need. Olivier provided many great recommendations and all the info you will need. We recommend a convenient ride from the airport with Marta if possible as it was a great introduction to the city. It is on the 6th floor so this would not be a good fit for anyone who has difficulty who stairs or isn't reasonably fit but we enjoyed the challenge and imagined that this work out helped balance out all the amazing food we ate in Lisbon!

Charming apartment, great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was was clean, well-appointment and comfortable. It's cosy and like a very charming attic. The location is superb and makes the 6 flights of stairs worth it. Check in was easy and the host, Olivier, was easy to communicate with and very responsive. There was a noise/vibration from the air-conditioner which made sleep challenging. However, Olivier said he would address and I trust he will correct the issue.

Wonderful Lisbon Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Brilliant place in the very heart of old Lisbon close to the metro, train station, tramp surrounded by numerous restaurants. The property itself was clean and cosy. Don't worry about the sixth floor because when you go out Lisbon keeps you out for all day. Oliver was helpful and during my stay he from time to time checked that everything was allright.
