Prime location - Bairro Alto 1B
|Address||Travessa dos Inglesinhos, 1200 Lisbon, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
This is a modern and cozy apartment, full of character and light, set on the first floor (Drto) of an ancient typical Lisbon building in the trendy and vibrant Bairro Alto, known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. This apartment is part of a group of 7 apartments that we have in this building.
The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, a nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, ready to cook home made meals. Towels and linens at your disposal are included in the price and satelite Tv and wireless internet as well.
To set forth on a discovery of Lisbon, there is no better place to begin: the tram a few steps away, international brand shops at Chiado and the more daring fashions in Bairro Alto, where you also have the trendiest restaurants of Lisbon. Bica neighbourhood, close by, is becoming a night haven for artists and intellectuals. But this does not destroy the calm and charm of Rua das Chagas. For theatre and opera lovers there are three theatre houses at a five minute distance, S. Carlos, S. Luiz and Trindade Theatres.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.
Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to see.
Luís de Camões square, which any Lisboner will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has.
But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.
This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).
It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.
Walk the streets with care, the movement on the sidewalks is always heavy and the trams are constantly passing.

accommodation did well up to expectations, you're reasonably fit, you can see a lot of walking, public transport is nearby, tips of the host were fine.
accomodatie voldeed goed aan de verwachtingen; ben je redelijk fit, kun je veel lopend bezichtigen; openbaarvervoer is dichtbij; tips van de host waren prima.
We are very well taken care of by Teresa. On arrival at airport I got a text message in which they reported that the metro was flat that day. Once in the apartment, she gave us a tour and some tips about restaurants etc. One day before departure, she arranged a taxi for us as we already at 5.00 am at the airport had to be. Nice cozy apartment in lively neighborhood. Many restaurants within walking distance of tram, train subway, center etc. Only thing we missed in the apartment was an extra mirror, hooks to hang clothes and a coffee machine. Teresa, thank you very much for your help.
We zijn zeer goed opgevangen door Teresa. Bij aankomst op airport kreeg ik een sms'je waarin zij meldde dat de metro plat lag die dag. Aangekomen in het appartement, heeft ze ons een rondleiding gegeven en wat tips m.b.t. restaurants enz. Een dag voor vertrek heeft ze voor ons een taxi geregeld daar wij al om 5.00 a.m. op de airport moesten zijn. Leuk appartement in gezellige levendige buurt. Veel restaurantjes, op loopafstand van tram, trein metro, centrum enz. Enige wat we misten in het appartement was een extra spiegel, haken om kleding op te hangen en een koffiezet apparaat. Teresa, heel erg bedankt voor je hulp.
Perfect apartment for two people, with child also fine. Located just outside the center in a quiet straatje.schoon, fully equipped, no wifi!
Prima appartement voor twee personen, met kind ook prima. Ligt net buiten het centrum in een rustig straatje.schoon, voorzien van alle gemakken, geen wifi!
Stylish apartment in a nice neighborhood of Lisbon. Everything is very easy to reach and the host is very welcoming. Highly recommended! Thanks for everything.
Stijlvol appartement in een mooie buurt van Lissabon. Alles is heel makkelijk te bereiken en de host is zeer gastvrij. Een aanrader! Thanks for everything.
home by Sara was quality. I suggest we draw the attention of prospective entrants to the fact that there are many names of streets like what we lost. output side subway to clarify .... the housing is consistent with what has been said, a little dark and noisy but normal for this very central area of old town with a satisfactory quality for money.
we have not cooked on site and took advantage of the nearby restaurants sometimes scammers .... Satisfied overall but we would not stay there strong hot season ......
l'accueil par Sara a été de qualité. je suggère qu'on attire l'attention des futurs arrivants sur le fait qu'il y a plusieurs noms de rues similaires ce qui nous a égaré. coté sortie métro à préciser....le logement est conforme a ce qui a été dit, un peu sombre et bruyant mais normal pour ce secteur très central de vieille ville avec un rapport qualité prix satisfaisant.
nous n'avons pas cuisiné sur place et avons profité des restaurants alentours parfois arnaqueurs.... Satisfaits dans l'ensemble mais nous n'y reviendrions pas en forte saison chaude ......
Very Nice flat in a lively neigborhood

An excellent apartment for 2 people in the center of Lisbon. Is central. (Quite a steep climb party) Many close walking distance and the metro. Fully equipped in a very quiet street. A friendly welcome explaining what to do in the turn, easily accessible and quick response.
Een prima appartement voor 2 personen in het centrum van Lissabon. Ligt centraal. (wel een flinke klimpartij ) Veel op loopafstand en de metro dichtbij. Van alle gemakken voorzien in een hele rustige straat. Een prettig ontvangst met uitleg wat er allemaal te doen is in de beurt, goed bereikbaar en een snelle reactie.
Nice apartment in the center of "Barrio Alto", where we spent a pleasant and enjoyable stay. Sara, the girl who gave us the keys, was very friendly and helpful.
The apartment was great! We had hardly take the Metro because it was so central we used haben.Leider evening a bit noisy because of the many bars in the street, but with ear plugs in the ears one has heard anything.
The kitchen was equipped with everything necessary. Thanks to our two sofas, it could easily make each. Unfortunately, you could not close the bathroom door ...
In the welcome we received good advice that we can look at everything. Everything worked out great! I would rent the apartment again! Thank you!
Die Wohnung war toll! Wir mussten kaum mit der Metro fahren, weil wir so zentral gewohnt haben.Leider war es Abends etwas laut wegen den vielen Bars in der Straße, aber mit Ohropax in den Ohren hat man nichts mehr gehört.
Die Küche war mit allem Notwendigen ausgestattet. Dank den zwei Sofas, konnte es sich jeder bequem machen. Leider konnte man die Bad Türe nicht schließen...
Bei der Begrüßung haben wir gute Tips bekommen, was wir uns alles anschauen können. Es hat alles super geklappt! Die Wohnung würde ich wieder mieten!! Danke!
Great place, in a very crowded livley part of the town. We (5 persons) had a great time, stuff was very friendly and uncomplicated... All clean all nice all good!
