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.

Nette, saubere Wohnung mit sehr zentraler Lage. Sehr netter Vermieter, war jederzeit Ansprechpartner für uns bei Fragen, hat schnell und unkompliziert die kaputte Kaffeemaschine ersetzt, hat uns gute Tips für Sightseeing gegeben.
We had a very pleasant stay in Lisbon. The host was very nice and helpful. The appartment was spacious and clean. The beds were good and the kitchen was fully equipped. The only downsides were the ants inside in the appartment (so put out the garbage immediately) and that we had to get up 187 steps to get to the appartment because it is located quite high in the city. Nevertheless this was a good excercise and we didn't really mind it. We would definitely recommend the appartment!
We had a lovely stay in this appartment, is has a top location, very pleasant neigborhood where ordinary people live their lives, quiet, and yet in the middle of vibrant Lisbon, with tramway 28 at 1 min, nice restaurants all around. Don't forget to have a bite at the restaurant of the Belgium lady, when you walk up the street, it is opposit the big white public building. Very comfy bed, cool and charming, the communication with our host was easy and pleasant, thanks Margarida for our lovely stay in Lisbon? We would certainly recommend your appartment!

Very nice, cozy and modern furnished, newly renovated studio apartment, which very accurately corresponds to the description. Cooling on hot days, and a small courtyard. Nice welcome on arrival and reliable taxi booking for the departure. Conveniently yet peacefully situated on the edge of the old town of Bairro Alto, in a small side street. Shops and links to the traditional line 28 just around the corner, some nice restaurants, eg the vegetarian restaurant "Terra", about a 10-15 minute walk. Comfortable bed with 2 Einzelmatrazen, sufficient bathroom and small kitchenette, which is not suitable for larger cooking delights. Ideal for 2 people who want to experience Lisbon individually. Abandonment of a few things overall a highly recommended location to relax in this charming town.
Sehr schönes, gemütlich und modern eingerichtetes, neu renoviertes Studio-Apartment, das recht genau der Beschreibung entspricht. Kühl an heißen Tagen und mit einem kleinen Innenhof. Nette Begrüßung bei der Ankunft und zuverlässige Taxireservierung für den Abreisetag. Verkehrsgünstig, aber ruhig gelegen am Rand der Altstadt Bairro Alto, in einer kleinen Seitenstraße. Einkaufsmöglichkeit und Haltestelle der traditionellen Linie 28 direkt um die Ecke, einige nette Restaurants, z.B. das vegetarische Restaurant „Terra“, nur 10-15 Minuten Fußweg entfernt. Bequemes Bett mit 2 Einzelmatrazen, ausreichend ausgestattetes Bad und kleine Küchenzeile, die aber für größere Kochfreuden nicht geeignet ist. Ideal für 2 Personen, die Lissabon individuell erleben möchten. Abgehen von ein paar Kleinigkeiten insgesamt eine sehr empfehlenswerte Location zum Wohlfühlen in dieser bezaubernden Stadt.
The apartment is located in an alley entrance scares, but it is a quiet neighborhood near the center but you have to climb many stairs to reach (all Lisbon is).
It was not clean and one of the bathrooms had no window and smelled.
In the living room there is a sofa which makes it a bit uncomfortable. The two bedrooms well.
The person who greeted us was very friendly.
El apartamento está situado en un callejón que de entrada asusta, pero es un barrio tranquilo y cercano al centro aunque hay que subir muchas escaleras hasta llegar (toda Lisboa es así).
No estaba limpio y uno de los baños no tenía ventana y olía mal.
En la sala-comedor no hay sofá por lo que resulta un poco incómodo. Los dos dormitorios bien.
La persona que nos recibió era muy amable.
We have spent a great week!
Fit, perfect, very well located, clean and with spectacular views over the city.
We were well looked after on arrival.
Certainly to repeat!
Hemos pasado una semana genial!
El apto, perfecto, muy bien situado, limpio y con unas vistas espectaculares sobre la ciudad.
Nos atendieron muy bien al llegar.
Ciertamente para repetir!
Muy buena acogida, y muy buena situación del apartamento, cerca del centro y del barrio alto, muy animado por las noches. Muy recomendable, excepto si no se quiere trasnochar.
Great apartment in a very interesting area, the nicest and the most helpful hosts. Thanks for having me!
Schoon. Prima locatie, maar het is niet groot. Voor 2 personen ideaal, voor 3 personen maximaal.
Midden inde stad. Als je een rustige locatie zoekt is deze niet geschikt, maar als je graag overal dicht bij wilt zitten en enig rumoer prima vindt is het ideaal. WiFi werkt goed. Tip:als je met de auto komt is de parkeergarage dichtbij voor € 13 per dag goed te doen.
Clean and tidy apartment, a small minus would be that it is because of poorly insulated door is heard very much from the stairwell, but on the other hand, there are not many others who live in the building. If you don't mind walking around, the location is perfect, in the older part of Lisbon. The host was very nice and helpful, we would definitely recommend this apartment.
