Charming Historic City Center (III)
- Pets allowed
|Address||Rua do Vale, 1200 Lisbon, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
There is a supermarket, plus several restaurants and bars within a 3-minute walk. Sao Bento is less than 10 minutes walking distance from Cais do Sodré Train Station.
If you walk 5 minutes you´re at "Bairro Alto", known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center.
At night, this 17th century colorful district is transformed into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. The main streets and narrow passageways are bustling with activity of dozens of excellent traditional restaurants, «fado singing houses», cafés, and a multitude of sleek clubs and bars that stay open until late. In recent years, «Bairro Alto» is also an alternative shopping destination, for those looking for trendy design shops, art galleries and bookshops. Bairro Alto, one of the Lisbon's hippest and coolest places.
There are several buses and trams, and subway, 10 minutes away, although one can easily walk to the main points of the city. Five minutes walking is the heart of the glamorous and cosmopolitan city can still be felt in the Chiado, a place where the "new" and "old" live in harmony. Characterized by casual-chic atmosphere, with streets full of shops, fine restaurants, beautiful cobblestone, beautiful churches and timeless cafes, Chiado makes any visitor feel real Lisbon.
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.
The Luís de Camões square, which any Lisboner will call Largo Camões, is not (email hidden). 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.

The apartment has been super. Very spacious apartment with 2 bedrooms. The arrival worked great. We called when we picked up our luggage at the airport and made our way to the metro. A friendly lady has been waiting for us in the apartment.
The apartment was very clean. In the kitchen everything is there what you need ... kettle, toaster, microwave etc. Also from the metro stations are airport and city center within easy reach. Definitely recommended.
Das Appartement ist super gewesen. Sehr geräumige Wohnung mit 2 Schlafzimmern. Die Ankunft hat super geklappt. Wir haben angerufen, als wir unser Gepäck am Flughafen abgeholt haben und uns auf den Weg zur Metro gemacht haben. Eine freundliche Dame hat uns bereits in der Wohnung erwartet.
Die Wohnung war sehr sauber. In der Küche ist alles vorhanden was man braucht... Wasserkocher, Toaster, Mikrowelle etc. Auch von den Metrostationen sind Flughafen und Innenstadt schnell zu erreichen. Auf jeden Fall empfehlenswert.
The spectacular apartment. Spacious clean well maintained and well connected. Very friendly and attentive host explained us everything we asked and advised on our visit to Lisbon. Delighted with the floor and the deal. A great experience. Thank you very much
El apartamento espectacular. Amplio limpio bien cuidado y bien comunicado. El anfitrion muy amable y atento nos explico todo lo que le preguntamos y nos asesoro sobre nuestra visita a lisboa. Encantados con el piso y el trato. Una gran experiencia. Muchas gracias
All was well in orde.we were even earlier int apartment. Thank you for this. The only downside was the smell of the sewers, it smelled so bright at night that we were sick of it. When it rained last night, then went off the scent. But very Lisbon suffered from it.
Alles was goed in orde.we mochten zelfs al vroeger int appartement. Dank u hiervoor. Het enige nadeel was de geur van de riolen, het stonk zo fel dat we snachts er misselijk van werden. Toen het de laatste nacht geregend had, toen ging de geur weg. Maar heel Lissabon had er last van.
The best is the location, right next to the high neighborhood that has lots of atmosphere, there are also many cafes and restaurants, and is for anything downtown. The place was clean, the only q is a bit small, it is to go to sleep and little else, and the bathroom too. ..but us q served us and we were all day outside. The bed is a sofa-bed, q for many nights would not recommend it, otherwise fine.
Lo mejor es la situación, justo al lado del barrio alto que tiene mucho ambiente, tambien hay muchas cafeterias y restaurantes, y esta a nada del centro. El sitio estaba limpio, lo unico q es un poco pequeño, es para ir a dormir y poco mas, y el baño demasiado. ..pero a nosotros nos sirvio ya q estabamos todo el dia fuera. La cama es un sofa-cama, q para muchas noches no lo recomendaria, por lo demas bien.
Lovely apartment! Wide view, good beds, spotless claen, well equipped kitchen, even the facility to iron your clothes (when they are wrinkled after the journay). The 76 steps (according to my wife 78) you can consider as a staircase to a little heaven. Food? Leaving the house go to the right, down the stairs at the end of the street, to the right, to the right, to the left! The metro (and the Aerobus) is also very nearby.
Has everything worked out great. The flat was exactly as described and the communication was easy and very friendly. Highly recommended!
Hat alles super geklappt. Die Flat war genau wie beschrieben und die Kommunikation war unkompliziert und sehr freundlich. Sehr empfehlenswert!
Small apartment in a great location in the old town. Once we have moved from an apartment on the 1st floor in the 2nd floor (rooms at 1.EG was noisy and in need of renovation), we were very pleased. Antonio was very helpful and allowed us to move without problems.
Kleines Appartement in toller Lage inmitten der Altstadt. Nachdem wir von einer Wohnung in der 1. Etage in die 2.Etage umgezogen sind (Zimmer im 1.EG war hellhörig und renovierungsbedürftig) waren wir sehr zufrieden. Antonio war sehr hilfsbereit und hat uns den Umzug ohne Probleme ermöglicht.
Very nice appartment and great location. Went with 5 friends and the size was perfect.
All went very well. Great view of the "25 de Abril" praise and thanks to the staff on site in Lisboa, even though we were earlier than the agreed time before the property was, Costa 20 minutes later with us. Great service can recommend a clear conscience.
Hat alles wunderbar geklappt. Toller Blick auf die "Ponte 25 de Abril" großes Lob und Dank an die Mitarbeiter vor Ort in Lisboa, obwohl wir früher als die vereinbarte Uhrzeit vor der Unterkunft standen, war Costa 20 min später bei uns. Tolle Serviceleistung kann man ruhigem Gewissen weiter empfehlen.
