The Blue House, Bica Funicular St.
|Address||Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo, 1200-057 Lisboa, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
This apartment, decorated with antique portuguese furniture with a modern twist, is located close to everything you want to see in Lisbon. In this house comfortably sleep up to 4 people, but can accommodate up to 6 pax counting on the double sofa bed in the living room.
Right in the center of the old town, close to the river Tagus, and looking down to Bica's 120 years old funicular, the Blue House is near two important railway stations: 5 minutes walking from Cais do Sodré (to Estoril and Cascais) and 10 minutes away from Rossio (to Sintra and Queluz), ferryboat and #15 and #28 famous trams. Subway and buses are also close to the door.
Cultural points that are at walking distance include Museums: Chiado (contemporary art), Arte Antiga (Ancient Art), Mude (fashion and design); Theaters: D. Maria II (national theater) São Carlos (opera), São Luís and Trindade, Carmo Convent ruins, and for the most fearless, even the Portuguese Parliament.
Gardens and belvederes are spread all over the surrounding blocks.
Also close to very good and not expensive portuguese typical food restaurants, to the World Heritage Fado music and the best night life in town, rather you prefer Bairro Alto, the renewed Cais do Sodré, Santos or even Bica itself.
Like the locals use to say with pride:
Bica is beautiful!

very friendly welcome; Very nice, bright apartment under the roof; Centrally situated, yet not noisy. Wonderful. We will be back.

Our stay at The Blue House Lisbon was just really nice. Our host gave us a really friendly, everything was prepared great for us, Cd-selection was the feeling of the apartment according to ... And the location just in the middle. Best suited for parents who want to drink in the evening without children again quickly around the corner a glass of wine. And very beautiful blue and individually decorated. We all thought it was really great!
Unser Aufenthalt in The Blue House Lissabon war einfach total nett. Unser Gastgeber hat uns total freundlich empfangen, alles war super für uns vorbereitet, Cd-Auswahl war dem Feeling der Wohnung entsprechend... Und die Location eben mittendrin. Bestens geeignet für Eltern, die am Abend ohne Kinder noch mal schnell um die Ecke ein Glas Wein trinken möchten. Und sehr schön blau und individuell eingerichtet. Wir fanden es alle ganz toll!

The 'Yellow Tram Apartment' is a good accommodation with all the necessary things that you also could find in you're own home.
The host and his employees, make you feel directly that you are in a good environment and give outstanding service. They take their time to explain how the best way is to explore the city of Lisbon and give you tips what you have to try of the Portuguese food, history and the nightlife.
ThanX you all: Carolina, Ruth, Ricardo and Joana

After the hosts welcomed us friendly and gave us some nice tips for our stay, we could start enjoying Lisbon. The apartment itself was small, but sufficient and tidied up as well as it offered everything needed for our stay. With its great location it was easy to discover everything by walking around.
Luis was really nice and helpful. Everything was fine at the apartment,highly recommended:)
Perfect location for a short city trip!
The appartment was clean, well renovated an all necessary utensils were there.
A lot of very good restaurants and bars within a 5min walk reachable. Also the checkin and checkout were really easy (thanks to Pedro!) :-)
We'll come again!!

Awesome and unique apartment in der middle of Lisboa to enjoy real Portuguese life. You can go anywhere by foot, so you do not need any public traffics.
Little bit noisy because of the life and the constructions outside- so if you want to live at a quiet place you have to choose a place more outside of Lisboa.
There is only space for maximum 6 people: 2 bedrooms with double bed and one sofa for 2 persons in the living room.
I would go to this apartment any time angain because I love this kind of living.
Would be great to have something at the apartment to clean the floor during a stay, because 5 or more people make a lot of dirt during a week or more.
The hosts were very kind to us and helped us with any wishes we had concerning the apartment.
All in all: Perfect times in Lisboa- thanks a lot! Muito obrigada!
The house was wonderful, clean and near the city center and a supermarket. We loved the ice machine in the fridge! The people were very nice and helpful. They gave us tips and when the wifiI stopped working (witch was not there fault, but the providers) they fixed it for us. Overall really great. If we would ever visit Lisbon again we would definitely stay here!
