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.

Pretty little quiet apartment for two people. Thanks to good tips at the keys we found fast connection (bus, metro) in all directions. Apartment is really recommended because various objectives are really easy to reach on foot!
Hübsche kleine ruhige Wohnung für zwei Personen. Dank guter Tips bei der Schlüsselübergabe haben wir schnelle Anbindung (Bus, Metro) in alle Richtungen gefunden. Wohnung ist wirklich empfehlenswert, da diverse Ziele wirklich auch gut zu Fuß zu erreichen sind!
The apartment was exactly the photos, was clean and simple but tastefully furnished (Ikea style), modern kitchen and bathroom.
Communication and keys were straightforward, the latter connected to something waiting period.
The apartment is in a very narrow, non-motorable road, a taxi should be the street Calçada de Santana specify about # 145 and 20m must walk. Quiet area, but on weekend evenings from neighboring courtyard beer garden loud party music, which does not bother if you
himself still crashes into the nightlife.
About access was reached after about 5 minutes down the bottom of the hill either direction Restauradores or Martim Moniz, the climb takes longer and is pretty legs.
But for that compensated the view from the 3-bed room (not by the door from the stairway from the kitchen separated) and the authentic atmosphere of the
Neighborhood. For groups of friends and families with older children in any
Die Wohnung entsprach genau den Fotos, war sauber und einfach, aber geschmackvoll eingerichtet (IKEA-Style), moderne Küchen- und Badausstattung.
Kommunikation und Schlüsselübergabe waren unkompliziert, letzteres mit etwas Wartezeit verbunden.
Die Wohnung liegt in einer sehr schmalen, nicht befahrbaren Straße, per Taxi sollte man die Straße Calçada de Santana ca. Nr.145 angeben und muss 20m zu Fuß gehen. Ruhige Gegend, jedoch am Wochenende abends vom benachbartem Innenhof-Biergarten laute Partymusik, was nicht stört, wenn man
sich selbst noch ins Nachtleben stürzt.
Über Treppengänge erreicht man nach ca. 5 min Abstieg den Fuß des Hügels entweder Richtung Restauradores oder Martim Moniz, der Aufstieg dauert entsprechend länger und geht ganz schön die Beine.
Dafür entschädigt aber der Blick aus dem 3-Bettzimmer (nicht durch Tür vom Treppenaufgang von der Küche abgetrennt) und das authentische Flair der
Nachbarschaft. Für Gruppenreisende und Familien mit älteren Kindern auf jeden
Fall zu empfehlen!
took the apartment in large part by the wonderful terrace that looked at the photos and absolute disappointment, another thing we did not like anything is that loa door glass was heard everything and privacy best minima.lo bed, very comfortable and very cool summer apartment
cogi el apartamento en gran parte por la maravillosa terraza que se veia en las fotos y decepcion absoluta,otra cosa que no nos gusto nada es que loa puerta de entrada era de cristal se escuchaba todo e intimidad minima.lo mejor la cama,muy comoda y el apartamento muy fresco para verano
Nice flat, calm but central: perfect for us!
We felt very comfortable and the costs for the flat are in a good balance to what you get. We liked the view out of the window. The space seams a little bit bigger on the pictures, but it was space enough for us three. It was clean and we had all we needed! The area around is calm but central: The next Metro Station "Intendente" is near, the 28E tram to "Alfama" comes along that way and the train to the beach starts at the end of the green line (Metro).
The landlord organized a taxi for us in the early morning which was very helpful, because the taxi driver in Lisboa often don't speak English.
If the shower would be refurbish, we would recommend the flat to all our friends.
Thanks for all. We had a very good time in Lisboa!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great flat right in the middle of a busy area very good for nightlife, and easy access to all the sights of Lisbon.
My friend and me absolutely loved the apartment. Both bathrooms and bedrooms were nice and spacy and equipped with all you need to feel comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, too, dishwasher and even a washing machine included. Just around the corner was a crocery shop that - although small - had everything from bread, fresh fruit/vegetables and other necessities. The apartment is only a 10 minute walk from the city center, metro station etc. Checkin and checkout worked very timely and smoothly, very nice person who met us at the apartment and booked us a taxi on our checkout day to get to the airport. So we were absolutely satisfied and did not see one thing to complain about. We would definitely book this apartment again on our next trip to Lisbon. Thank you very much - dear hosts.
Everything worked out great. The apartment was clean and nice and it is located in a quiet side street. Unfortunately, the terrace is surrounded by a high wall and therefore not very inviting but all in all, agrees the value for money.
app well located in a scenic area on the ground floor BUT without double glazing (intense nightlife !!!) with misleading photos:
only the correct room was the sofa in the living room doubtful shower tray with brown seals and badly arranged kitchen and bathroom s without vents
d or odors ..
well organized and friendly reception
app bien situé dans un quartier pittoresque MAIS en rez de chaussee sans double vitrage (vie nocturne intense!!!) avec des photos trompeuses :
seule la chambre etait correcte le canapé du salon douteux le bac de douche avec des joints marrons et mal disposée la cuisine et la s de bains sans aerations
d ou des mauvaises odeurs..
reception bien organisée et aimable
Pretty, well equipped and centrally located apartment (only a few steps to the tram station and E28 to the supermarket). The old town is (over a smaller hill within walking distance). Small, but high walled terrace. Outlook Unfortunately, even on the wall of the terrace - but that does not bother when you're most of the day in the beautiful Lisbon road. Apartment takeover and -abgebe completely uncomplicated. Very friendly welcome and helpful tips. Wenn's not be so many other interesting places, we comb certainly very soon!
Hübsche, gut eingerichtete und zentral gelegene Wohnung (nur wenige Schritte bis zur Straßenbahn E28 und bis zum Supermarkt). Auch die Altstadt ist (über einen kleineren Hügel zu Fuß erreichbar). Kleine, allerdings hoch ummauerte Terrasse. Ausblick leider auch nur auf die Mauer der Terrasse - das stört aber nicht, wenn man fast den ganzen Tag im wunderschönen Lissabon unterwegs ist. Wohnungsübernahme und -abgebe völlig unkompliziert. Sehr freundlicher Empfang und hilfreiche Tipps. Wenn´s nicht noch so viele andre interessante Orte gäbe, kämmen wir sicherlich sehr bald wieder!
