Bairro Alto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, living room, dining room, 1 full bathroom, kitchen, sleeps 1 to 4

In the center of town, close to the Parliament, a short walking distance to Chiado and Bairro Alto, with their nightlife, shops, museums and theatres, and on the route of tram 28, the most scenic tram in Lisbon...

The building underwent full renovation in 2004 and the project was awarded the second prize in an yearly competition that appraises the reconstruction of old town buildings throughout Portugal. Its major source of beauty are the glazed tiles (azulejos), dating from the 18th and 19th centuries, which are different from floor to floor, thus rendering each apartment unique.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair inaccessible

Why Ana Cardoso chose Bairro Alto

I saw the glazed tiles and the wooden floors and that was it -- decision taken! Also, I had attended school very close by, so everything felt like home.

Wonderful Accomodation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 11 nights in this apartment and it was wonderful. It had everything you needed to make you feel that you were in a "home away from home". It was immaculate and in a good location. We were able to make most breakfasts and some dinners in the well equipped kitchen. We also did several loads of laundry during our stay; clothes are dried on an outside line or on a drying rack in the apartment. The neighbourhood is most interesting and the people very friendly. The owner was most helpful: every question was quickly answered. It was hard for us to leave; but we will be back to Portugal, a wonderful country, and hope to stay in this apartment again. We highly recommend this rental unit.

A hidden jewel

  • 5 of 5
Perfect home away from home. Great location, great amenities, great restaurants and wonderful neighbors. Clean and fully equipped.
We have recommended the apartment to few friends knowing full well that they will be as satisfied as we were. Helena, the manager is just a jewel. She was there for all of our needs. An experience not to be forgotten after 50 years of traveling around the world, jewels still can be found.

Charming, comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5
The apartment was as charming as the photos would lead you to believe! Ana met us at the apartment and not only showed us around the apartment, but gave us a great deal of information about the city. We found the apartment to be quite comfortable and it had everything we needed. It is a convenient location - particularly as the 28 Trolley passes right by the place! Shops were also conveniently located in the immediate neighborhood. There is some street noise, particularly due to the trolleys, but it was not a significant problem for us.

Beautiful, sunny, centrally located spacious apt.

  • 5 of 5
We can not say enough about this wonderful apartment and owner Ana and manager Helena. They made our stay very comfortable, providing us with a local bottle of wine and pastries upon our arrival. It was a perfect apartment for my husband and I. We loved the sunlight, the french doors, the beautiful wood and tile floors, walls and ceilings and how spacious it was -- living room, separate dining room, bedroom, kitchen & bathroom. We stayed for 4 days but could easily have stayed a month it was that comfortable and like a real home! There were staples in the kitchen like olive oil, coffee, and some spices, though we did not cook a lot, just had our coffee and breakfast in the morning. The location is perfect on the top floor and with the double paned windows you do not hear the street noise even though the apt is very centrally located to the Barrio Alto and Chiado shops and restaurants and tram lines. The apartment was clean and everything worked - lots of hot water, good lighting, plenty of extra towels and blankets and even umbrellas for us to use. We walked everywhere from the apt -- restaurants, the castle, the train station, the historic Alfama district. Helena was quick to respond to any request and was helpful in arranging our taxi on the last day to the airport. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to our friends and family.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5
Потрясающее место! Квартира находится в старом квартале Лиссабона, под окном ходит 28 трамвай, на улице огромное количество магазинов и кафе. В этом месте очень хорошо ощущается атмосфера Лиссабона. Практически не пользовались городским транспортом, везде можно дойти пешком. Квартирка очень-очень милая и удобная, все как показано на фото. Ана и Helena очень добрые и милы люди, спасибо им огромное за наш отдых. Они всегда на связи. Helena нас встретила в квартире с презентом, рассказала про интересные места,рекомендовала ресторанчики для ужина, выдала карты, оставила свой номер мобильного. Dear Ana ana Helena,muito obrigado pela sua atenção, nós tivemos um tempo fabuloso em Lisboa. Em seu apartamento, você querer voltar de novo e de novo. Vou recomendar para quem quer viver no presente Lisboa.

Roomy, Airy, Affordable

  • 4 of 5
It was perfect for two retirees wanting to explore Lisboa. Neat and clean, a corner apartment with windows on two sides which beat the Lisboa heat. It can get a bit noisy but accept it as part of your experience.
We chose to arrive via the Metro and a walk along the trolley tracks to acquaint ourselves with the best way to get around Lisboa, namely walking. For the next 8 nights we explored mostly on foot. Breakfast at the pastry shop across the street, examine the butchers wares on the ground level, shop for groceries farther up the street, and greet the locals at all times of the day and night.
Remember that many places are closed on Sunday so go where the locals go, the market at Cais do Sodre. Pick your breakfast, lunch, or dinner from one of the many stalls, sit at one of the long tables, and strike up a conversation with the people next to you. Did I mention the pastries and chocolate shops?
We highly recommend this apartment!

Five to ten minutes walking distance you'll find bohemian Bairro Alto, with its nightlife and alternative shops. A couple of steps further you're in Chiado, a more sophisticated district, with old-style cafes, theaters, and renowned shops.

Head in that same direction strolling along the narrow streets closer to the river and you can enjoy nice views of Lisbon and the river from Miradouro (Belvedere) Santa Catarina.

Walking a few minutes the opposite direction as you leave the apartment, you find S. Bento street with its antique shops and the national parliament. Santos, labeled the 'design district' for its cluster of shops dedicated to design, is 2,000 feet (600m) away.

Principe Real, with the botanic garden, several gay bars and clubs, interior design shops, and more antique shops, is located 2,000 feet (600m) from the apartment.

To go to Alfama and the castle or the flea market on a Saturday or Tuesday morning, catch tram 28 (for 1 mile, 1.6 km) (the stop heading in that direction is located on the street behind the building).

At the nearby Santos station you can take the train to visit Estoril and Cascais or enjoy their beach (30 minute train ride).

The Marina Doca Alcantara is 1.7 miles (2.7 km) away, with a direct 2 minute train connection to Santos station (which is less than 10 minutes walking from the apartment).

Lisbon synagogue is 1 mile (1.6 km) away.

Cafés, pastry shops, small groceries, restaurants, and old-fashioned shops go without mentioning, as there are so many of them all around...
