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.

Very nice apartment, fully renovated and equipped, like the pictures. Great bathroom and beautiful kitchen. The apartment is ideally located (5min metro station Baixa / chiado) only downside noise. Being on the ground floor, you may be bothered by the noise of the nightlife will. The entrance is very poorly insulated so between the apartment and the entrance corridor is as if it was the same room, the sound level. I recommend this apartment. Nicolas
Appartement très agréable, entièrement rénové et équipé, comme sur les photos. Superbe salle de bain et magnifique cuisine. L'appartement est idéalement placé (5min de la station de métro de Baixa/chiado)
Seul bémol, le bruit. Étant au rez-de-chaussée, vous serez peut-être importunés par les bruits de la vie nocturne. La porte d'entrée est très mal isolée donc entre l'appartement et le corridor d'entrée c'est comme si c'était la même pièce, au niveau sonore.
Je vous recommande cet appartement. Nicolas
Our stay was great from the moment we arrived at the airport! Margarida and Anne have been excellent hosts during our stay! They have helped us with arranging taxi's, but also been amazing when it came to suggesting places to see.
Next to that the appartment we were in was lovely! It really felt like coming home. It was clean, internet access, cable tv (not that we needed that) and the best location you can imagine, close to all the hotspots which Lisbon has to offer!
Thank you ladies, we have enjoyed each single moment of our stay!
It is a really great apparment very close to all popular places and quiet surprisingly. Margarida was very helpful and I could always ask for help when I needed something. I highly recommend it!
Very nice apartment and clean, in the central area of the Barrio Alto. The hostess was very friendly and helpful and the night there was not too much confusion as I would expect ... all right then, recommended!
Appartamento molto carino e pulito, in zona centralissima del Barrio Alto.
La padrona di casa è stata molto gentile e disponibile e la notte non c'era nemmeno troppa confusione come mi sarei aspettato...
tutto bene quindi, consigliato!
This apartment has the perfect location. Walking distance from the Underground, bus stops and tram stops, it is also really close to Bairro Alto! It is clean and also equipped with the necessities. The only thing is that it looks a bit smaller than what it does in the picture! But it was still enough for all three of us. Lovely place, would consider living here again if I ever go back to Lisbon.
We stayed 4 days in lissabon and were 5 people. The apartment was wonderful, centrally located and the host very nice with a wonderful tipp for a restaurant that we enjoyed (the decadente in barrio alto). The beds in the room for 3 were a bit small and instable, but apart from that we can highly recommend the apartment!
A bright and cozy apartment with a perfect location.
We had a really nice stay, Lisbon is a wonderful city and the people are just lovely, friendly, helpful, would like to communicate even though it is in English, as most are easily understood. The apartment has stunning views of the city - all the way to the river Tagus. The heart of the old town, with a lot of small shops and bars, and without much traffic, and with lovely winding narrow streets with a lot of charm. We were welcomed by Joanna, a sweet, smiling girl who made sure we had what we needed linen, towels etc. The apartment is equipped primarily for 4 people, so when we were 5, lacked a little cutlery etc. we discovered along the way - another time we will probably write it to them in advance. Before arrival we saw to be contacted by. mail, so we constantly know how we should deal with, and who we should contact. It is definitely a place we want to visit again.
Vi havde et rigtigt dejligt ophold, Lissabon er en pragtfuld by, og befolkningen er bare dejlige, venlige, hjælpsomme, vil gerne kommunikere selvom det foregår på engelsk, som de fleste snakker let forståeligt.
Lejligheden har en fantastisk udsigt over byen - helt til floden Tejo. Den ligger midt i den gamle bydel, med en masse små butikker og barer, og uden den store trafik, og med dejlige snoede smalle gader med megen charme.
Vi blev budt velkommen af Joanna, en sød og smilende pige, som sørgede for at vi havde hvad vi skulle bruge af sengetøj, håndklæder mm
Lejligheden er udstyret primært til 4 personer, så da vi var 5, manglede der lidt bestik osv. opdagede vi hen ad vejen - en anden gang vil vi nok skrive det til dem på forhånd.
Inden ankomsten oplevede vi at blive kontaktet pr. mail, så vi hele tiden vidste hvordan vi skulle forholde os, og hvem vi skulle kontakte.
Det er bestemt et sted vi gerne vil besøge igen.
We enjoyed our stay in Lisbon very much. The appartment is in Bairro Alto, near to many party places. From there you can explore the city very good.
In my opinion, the appartment is too small for 7 people, especially because of the one small bathroom. But it's clean and very nice.
Just apartment. Is worth repeating. Only the geyser we need to stabbing a few times. 6 people is too much for this apartment. The city is worth exploring on foot. Small convenience stores in the streets here and there to find and a larger supermarket Pingo Doce is also near. In the evening is a good place with a rose in water and then one of the many good affordable eateries to visit. We recommend the tapas and wine restaurant on the rua Alecrim
Net appartement. Is voor herhaling vatbaar. Alleen de geiser hebben we een aantal malen aan moeten steken. 6 personen is teveel voor dit appartement. De stad is goed te voet te verkennen. Kleine buurtsupers zijn in de straten her en der te vinden en een grotere supermarkt van Pingo Doce zit ook vlak bij. In de avond is het goed vertoeven met een rosé bij het water om daarna een van de vele goed betaalbare eetgelegenheden te bezoeken. Een aanrader is het tapas en wijn restaurant aan de rua alecrim
