Prime location - Bairro Alto 1B
|地址||Travessa dos Inglesinhos, 1200 Lisbon, 葡萄牙|
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.

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.
The accommodation was basic (in decoration, etc.) but sufficient for us. Central location, enough beds, wifi, tv, 2 bathrooms. As advertised. (we missed a toaster and a coffee machine)
Communications with the host was good. But the handover of the key was a bit unlucky. We arrived in the evening 9 pm, and while on the phone everything was ok, the guy who brought the key was late. So we had to wait up to 30 minutes outside. Not a deal breaker, but a point for attention (don't let a family with kids wait 30 minutes in a, for them, completely unknown location:) ... I will deduct 1 full point for this.
So, I was going to give a 7/10 (8 for the basic, but as advertised, accommodation and 1 minus point for the key-handover) but I will give 1 full point extra because the people at the office really took good care of us the last day ...
... we had an evening flight (10 pm), but had to check out at 11 am (normal procedure). The people in the office offered the following solution for our luggage. We could store the luggage at their office until 7 pm, so we could enjoy another, near full, day in Lisbon. At 7 pm we picked up our luggage, and the office called a taxi for us. Top marks for that!
So, all in all, a great stay!
A well deserved 8/10
Lisbon city to see and experience ..affascinante to explore every corner to go back!
