The description of the apartment and the building is insuficient to explain the beauty and comfort of this unbelievable property.
The property is new and the apartment was clean.
Very good support from the owner.
I have already recommended this beautiful place to my best friends.
We have stayed at many VRBO properties around the world and Martin's is one of the very best. The apartment is very modern with excellent appliances and lots of space. It was very clean and closely reflected the photos on the web site.
Martin's English is perfect and he was very helpful. The taxi service he uses knows the most direct route to the apartment and was much cheaper than the random taxi we used from the airport to the apartment.
The building was originally constructed as a college to educate English priests after Henry VIII created the Church of England. The history shows through the beautiful architecture and the exposed stone in some areas.
The apartment is in the Bairro Alto, which is a quiet area of narrow streets above the busier commercial districts of the city. It is a short walk to the da Bica funicular and the 28 tram that provide access to the other areas. Each provides a unique experience and are very popular.
We expected a nice apartment for our stay in Lisbon but our expectations were exceeded by this fabulous home away from home. It was well furnished, comfortable, and safe. The location in Bairro Alto was perfect with access to markets, restaurants, and transportation. Thanks to Martin and his wife (Dinora?), we were given lots of information about things to do and see. Having a kitchen was helpful for having light breakfasts and even one night of cooking dinner for ourselves. Of course, part of the fun was finding other dining experiences. We discovered a great wine bar called BA Wine Bar on Rua de Rossa (about two blocks from the apartment) and also had several fantastic meals at other nearby restaurants. The garage parking was a real advantage since we had a car, offering opportunities for day trips to Sintra, Cascais, and Evora. Lisbon is a great city and the apartment made it even better.
We loved the appartment that is really privileged. What we really appreciated was that it was spacious and combined the old structure and therefore, somehow aristocratic, with modern furniture appliances etc. Also imprortant there is a feeling of safety (thick walls- doorman-castle like design.)
This is a really lovely apartment, complete with all modern facilities, Internet connection, Miele appliances, and clean throughout. Extras like the romantic candles and four poster bed are a treat.
We arrived in the height of the summer, with no air conditioning, but this wonderfully restored old convent building has a massive thermal insulation and remains cool. The restoration is another treat, especially when returning each day from a lovely time in the city (try the tram 28 and 15) or beach (to Costa da Caparica takes 40mins by 153 or 161 TST bus from Praca de Espanha for €4.90).
The apartment owners are very helpful and assist 24/7, they really made us feel at home (in Lisbon!). The website list of 'accommodation and facilities' is accurate and you won't need to bring the iron, hairdryer or simple consumables like cleaning products and basic cooking items. There's a supermarket at the bottom of the hill in the high street that sells everything. Try Bruno's jeep trip over the 7 hills, a wonderful exhilarating drive, and you see many sights - do this at the start of your stay to scope the city.
Younger folk will love the nearby late night bars in Bairro Alto, with their cocktails, music and themed decor, some raging til 3am Friday and Saturday nights. Those not so keen will use the traditional shutters on the windows to reduce the noise!
It was a real delight, during the hot strolls around the city, to stop at the many bars and cafes for an espresso or refreshing cold beer, or glass of red wine (which is very cheap compared to the UK).
Must sees include: Belem (tram 15) sights including the tower, monument, and monastery, Sintra (train every 20 mins from Rossio station - but check the palace/castle/etc opening times as some are closed mid-week), Alfama (find a restaurant in the evening that includes the traditional Fado singing), castle, cathedral, pantheon, monastery, and a walk around the Baixa Chiado shopping area. But a real treat is the restaurant over the river. Arrive early for a sunset romantic evening meal. Take the ferry from Cais do Sodre to Casilhas, turn right and walk along the bland promenade, past the derelict buildings for 15 minutes (but before the elevator), then you find this fantastic restaurant. And try the port, ginjinha liqueur and the wonderful regional wines, and the super bock beer.
Thank you Inglesinhos, Lisbon and it's wonders, we had a fantastic time.

Our weekend visit was excellent.
We loved the flat, beautifully finished and with everything included to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. A welcome package including essentials like milk, coffee, water, tea, and wine (free of charge) make for a great arrival touch. The porter was also very friendly and helpful.
This flat is located in an "Oasis" of calm and tranquility right in the middle of the busy and exiciting Bairro Alto area, within easy walking distance from the best restaurants and tourist sites. It is a brand new development (adopting "old-school" charms) with communal garden, amazing views over Lisbon and garage.
We will definitely be staying here again!
In the old city center of Lisbon near the castle and the chamber of the city, you can find a magnific place surrounded by the city river 'Tejo' and one of the most beautiful cities that the Atlantic Coast can offer you, Lisbon. A city full of history and epic places to visit, since the time of the Portuguese Discoveries, it is rich in culture and life. Known as the city of the seven hills, you can lost yourself in the typical quarters of Lisbon and eat really good fish in the fantastic Fish-Restaurants in Restauradores square. But, if you want you can also go and take advantage of the good beaches of the Lisbon Coast. Near the building you can find many little cafes, bars and restaurants (Bairro Alto) where you can rest and taste the excellent portuguese food and sweets. Situated in the Bairro Alto, in central Lisbon, surrounded by commerce, theatres and restaurants, the Chiado - the city’s downtown and Principe Real’s antique stores, São Bento and the beauty of Bairro da Estrela.
