The strategical location of this apartment, right by the Lisbon´s Cathedral, will make you enjoy the city in a few steps, as you find everything you need at door. The apartment is located in a newly refurbished and very beautifull building facing the Sé cathedral church, on the way up to the Castelo de S. Jorge hill and Alfama. At a few minutes walking distance you find the Castelo de S. Jorge, the cafeterias and terraces of Santa Luzia and Portas do Sol, Alfama, the Sé Church, the famous Praça do Comércio square and very good transport connections, including the tram 28 and underground. An ideal location.
Nearby you have various forms of traditional Portuguese commerce, and from there you can easily reach most of the popular sightseeing spots in Lisbon.
It is also a short walking distance to the subway (Rossio station), to the train station (Cais do Sodré) going to the beaches around Cascais and the station where the trains to Sintra leaves.
Less than 5 minutes from home you will find all means of transportation you need from the tram No. 15 that will take you to Belém.
There is also some public car park within a 5/8 minutes walk of the apartment.
This location has easy access to Baixa, Bairro Alto, Chiado, the Castle (S. Jorge) district and also to Alfama and to Santa Clara, where Lisbon’s flee-market takes place.
It is also close to some of the stops of the famous tram 28 (Electrico 28). This is a scenic route crossing most of the tourist neighbourhoods of the city centre. A definite must for any visitor to Lisbon.
After the great earthquake of 1755, when the center of Lisbon was destroyed, a new center was constructed, made of grid pattern “geometrical” streets. This area, situated between Praça do Comércio, Rossio and Praça da Figueira is called Baixa.
From Baixa you can easily access The nigh life district Bairro Alto and the smart Chiado, with all his theatres, museums, elegant and traditional shops, bars and restaurants.
To the other direction, going up street, you will accede Graça and Santa Clara the place where Feira da Ladra (Thief’s market ), the flea market, happens every Tuesdays and Saturdays.
Here there are several “musts” not to miss on your visit:
Panteão Nacional – Church of Santa Engrácia: When the construction began in 1682, it was planned as one of the Lisbon’s biggest churches. However, it had been long neglected and the construction was completed only in 1966! It was then that the Panteão Nacional was inaugurated. Here you will find cenotaphs of Portugal’s heroes. The interior is colossal and contains the tombs of historic and literary figures – from Vasco da Gama to Amália Rodrigues, the famous fado singer.
The convent of São Vicente de Fora: Portugal’s first king, Afonso Henriques laid the foundations of this church in order to fulfil a vow to construct Christian Houses of worship where Portuguese and European crusaders would lay to rest. Inaugurated in 1629, the church was severely damaged by the 1755 earthquake. It has been recently renovated and deserves a visit. The view from the rooftop is one of the greatest in Lisbon.
Some “Miradouros” (vantage points) with amazing views over the castle S. Jorge, the river Tejo and the city roofs: miradouro da Graça with an open-air café and Senhora do Monte 600m further on. The views are even more spectacular at sunset. Don’t miss it!

Reviews for this host's other properties
The apartment is on the 2nd floor and located well where the restaurants as well as best ice cream parlour is. You need to be relatively fit to stay in this neighbourhood as there are a lot of steep gradients!
The apartment itself is ok we paid around £50 a night and for this price I was expecting more. The kitchen itself looks very nice however it was not well equipped with basic items such as bowls, salt and pepper, sugar not provided. This is a must as we had to then purchase from new even when staying just for three nights. The apartment bathroom needs toilet roll holder, there was some mould, also needs a place where you can place where you can put shampoo, soap etc. No toiletries are provided.
We did not manage to get the TV working but that was not the end of the world as we were on holiday - a message in portugese was mentioned on the screen which we couldn't understand and unfortunately was not fixed whilst on our stay. We were also charged 8 euros for the 3 nights and I have just realised now that it should have been 6 according to the description. A light was not working in the apartment as well.
Overall its an OK place to stay given the price maybe we have too much of a high expectation having stayed in 5 different countries with Wimdu. Some small improvements will go a big way.
Apartamento bien situado en Barrio Alto. Limpio y con las comodidades básicas.
El check-in nos lo hizo una chica muy servicial que estuvo muy pendiente de atendernos en todo. También nos encargó un taxi para la salida, ya que era muy temprano por la mañana.
Quizá falta algo de menaje en la cocina, pero por lo demás todo muy correcto. Las escaleras de acceso a la vivienda son algo temerarias, sobretodo con equipaje pero salvamos el peligro.
El restaurante de tapas de debajo está muy bien, calidad-precio muy bien y la atención también muy buena.
It is a nice apartment in the bar district bairro alto. Eventough there are a lot of people outside, there is not much noise. the kitchen is small and was very uncleaned (garbage hasn't been put away, fridge wasn't cleaned, teakettle had still water inside). The apartment has an ugly oldish smell. But the location is very central and the arrangement with the code instead of a key to the apartment is very smart.
schön eingrichtetes Studio, alles vorhanden und sauber, sympathische Einweisung, einziger Nachteil: sehr hellhörig.
Als wir ankamen, waren wir vom Äußeren des Hauses nicht begeistert, änderten dann jedoch unsere Meinung als wir in der Wohnung waren. die Wohnung hat unseren Ansprüchen voll genügt. Die Übergabe der Schlüssel klappte gut und wie erhielten vom Vermieter noch einige nützliche Informationen.
Estancia agradable en un apartamento céntrico, con restaurantes cerca del apartamento. El anfitrión nos informo perfectamente de las posibilidades de la zona
Das Zimmer mit dem Doppelbett ist sehr klein und es fehlt ein grosser Spiegel für uns Frauen, aber sonst war es wirklich ein gutes Kosten- Leistungsverhältnis. Es war sauber und ordentlich, das Wohnzimmer sehr geräumig, die Küche gut ausgestattet und Filipe jederzeit erreichbar. Er hat bei der Ankunft auf uns gewartet und uns alles erklärt. Er hatte tolle Tipps was Restaurants und Sehenswürdigkeiten angeht und hat uns außerdem das Taxi zum Flughafen für den Rückweg organisiert. Das Apartment liegt nur 5 Gehminuten von einem Aussichtsspot entfernt, an dem man über die ganze Stadt gucken kann! Gerade Abends wunderschön! Direkt nebenan ist ein Kiosk der bis 1:00h morgens geöffnet hat und wo man sich mit z.B. Wasser, Duschgel und Naschereien eindecken kann (falls ihr spät ankommt und nur Handgepäck dabei habt;)
Prima appartement, schoon en heel ruim
Ein ordentliches Apartment, wie auf den Bildern. Reicht vollkommen, man hat alles was man braucht, wenn man den ganzen Tag eh unterwegs ist und die schöne Stadt Lissabon erkundigt!
Als etwas fehlte, brachte sie es direkt und ersetzte es! :-)Haben nützliche Infos und einen Stadtplan bekommen. Hat sich Zeit für uns genommen, obwohl unser Flugzeug Verspätung hatte und wir somit 2 Stunden später am Apartment waren!
Vom Apartment konnte man alles in wenigen Gehminuten erreichen.
Allerdings haben wir das Apartment nicht sofort gefunden, da es keine Hausnummer gab.
Schöne Wohnung, zentral gelegen. Sauber. Super geeignet für eine Familie. Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis
