Overview

Bairro Alto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms with 3 bathrooms sleeps 10

The apartments are located at the heart of Chiado, considered the most beautiful area of historical Lisbon. Due to its rich history, Chiado is unanimously considered the area of Lisbon with nicer and more elegant classical buildings. Nowadays, it is still a privileged meeting point for ‘Lisboetas’ and visitors with its old cafés and shops coexisting with avant-garde galleries, ateliers and lounges. It is the place to live and work for fashion designers, artists..

Very spacious, great views, are ideal for family couples or friends, with or without kids, who wish to see and live the real Lisbon city Life. This is a unique location in Lisbon for its beauty, as well as its historic and cultural background.

You May stay on the BIG Apart if you're a group from 6 to 10 people or in the DESIGN Apart if you're from 2 to 5.

Gastronomy, wine & sights: Very well located for gastronomic & wine tasting.

Walking distance for bars/typical night-life.

And because the views are some of the best things in Lisbon, Santa Catarina belvedere (known as Adamastor), deserves a visit. Next to the belvedere, at Noobai Café, you will spend one of the best evenings of your life. The terrace is very pleasant and River Tagus looks like a movie setting. Try the salads, toasts and teas. On Fridays and Saturdays closing time is at midnight.

Young Designer Stores: Nearby Bairro Alto/Chiado, most known boroughs for designers and alternative shops, as well as international brands (Hermés, Vista Alegre - porcelains - Diesel, Fornarina....)

The Bairro Alto neighbourhood has an altogether different standing: it is the 'neighbourhood'. That is enough for it to sail through the years since mid-eighties as one of the oldest alternative areas of the town. Everything happens here. Art galleries, bars, shops. During the day it is a typical neighbourhood, with small groceries, art schools and shops you do not find elsewhere in town. At night it is the spot for new trends, music, dance and fashion. Like any European capital city.

Monument, landmarks and sightseeing: Located in the historical centre.

Subway/bus station nearby.

Also with tramway nº 28 just in front! very typical!

Why Portuguese Living chose Bairro Alto

Hera Charm is the perfect apartment for 10 people, that want to me in a fantastic apartment, right at the best Lisbon location - Bairro Alto and Chiado - and with an amazing terrace with Lisbon view!

Guestbook comments from the manager

The remarkable thing about the apartment was a really panoramic view and it was lovely to sit on the terrace before going out for dinner with a glass of wine overlooking the city.

I liked as well the interior of the apartment. I guess in respect of the nice design the name of the apartment Hera Design was given.

And really great location! Everything you need is there: Bairro Alto, Chiado, narrow Lisbon streets full of cafes, restraints, shops… On the first night we went to the place calls Fabulas. It is like 10 min walking from the apartment down to the big shopping center. Try there a cheesecake with honey melon jam – “compota” in Portuguese! Just so good!

Perfect location, lots of character

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for 6 days with a group of family/friends and we all loved the apartment. It is a characteristic building in a quiet street. Location is perfect: Chiado/St Catarina is a charming part of Lisabon. It is very close to Bairro Alto (restaurants/night life) and Baixa (shops) and yet it is a very quiet area. The train station Cais de Sodré (trains to Belém and Cascais) is a 10 minute walk, main train station (train to Sintra) about 15 minutes. Supermarket nearby (Calcado do Combro). Popular tram 28 passes through that same street. Very pleasant apartment. Wonderful view from the balcony (evening sun). The bathrooms could use a makeover, but everything functions as it should. Great beds. Clean towels. Sofia and Bernard from Portugese Living were very friendly and helpful. It was a privilege to stay here. Highly recommended.

NB: taxi is the easiest way from/to the airport but there is also a good metro connection: station Chiado/Baixa is a 5 minutes walk from the apartment.

Tolles Apartement mit schöner Aussicht

  • 5 of 5
Großzügiges und gut eingerichtetes Apartement mit tollem Balkon und super Aussicht. Liegt sehr zentral im Bairro Alto mit allem was man braucht. Gut angebunden an die nächste U-Bahn Station, den Bahnhof und die Fährverbindung. Von dort kann man sowohl die Stadt als auch die Küste und das Hinterland erkunden. Wir waren schon zweimal dort und würden immer wieder das Apartement buchen. Noch einmal vielen Dank an das Team von Portugiese Living, die uns immer geholfen haben, wenn wir Hilfe brauchten.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, stylish, with big terrace in the city center. For information that the building doesn´t have an elevator and the apartment is on the top floor. For us it wasn´t a problem as everything else was perfect - clean, cozy, bottle of wine waited for us in the fridge, sight seeings in the walking distance, bars just around the corner. Next time I visit Lisbon, this will be the place to stay again :)

Well located.

  • 3 of 5
Bernard from the management team met us late morning at the property, just as we arrived from the airport. We appreciated that he agreed to meet us before the scheduled check in time, as our flight arrived mid morning. One of the best things about this property was the help we received from the management team. Sophia was friendly and prompt in our email exchanges. She assisted us in making and confirming a variety reservations. As we were spending New Years in Lisbon, Sophia email us in advance of our arrival with a list of restaurants open on the holiday. These are terrific people.

From the exterior, the apartment is not particularly attractive. The street in front of the building does not go through, it deadends a few feet from the front door of the building. The street was stacked with garbage. Graffiti was painted on the front of the building and adjacent properties.

Bernard, from the management company let us into the property and directed us to the third floor apartment. The apartment had been closed up and apparently not rented out for some time before our arrival. When we arrived, the apartment did not smell particularly fresh even though Bernard had already opened windows. The heat had apparently not been "on" and the temperature in the apartment was in the low 50's. To remedy this, we left the windows open, which slowed the heat recovery in the property.

The apartment is quite spacious, accommodating the seven of us very well. The kitchen has granite countertops, and is well supplied with glasses, flatware and table settings.

Clean sets of towels were left in each bedroom. I was surprised to find that most of the bath towels were thin with use, and in most cases had holes in them. The furnishings throughout the apartment have been well used. The couch in the living room has holes in it. The tiling in the bathrooms requires significant repair.

The apartment was slow to warm up after our arrival, after we had been in there for a day or so, the electrically powered radiators caught up to keep the apartment at a comfortable level of heat. After the temperature finally reached the high 60's, it pretty well maintained the temperature during the balance of our stay, although the heating was certainly uneven.

The apartment is well located close to great restaurants, bars, sites and retail. We generally walked to restaurants and other sites and the location of this property makes that easy.

This apartment was the best of all the places that we stayed in during our month in Portugal. Wonderful location on a TINY street - we even got used to the 80 steps it took to get up to the apartment. Everything was neat and clean and the rental company was very helpful. We would certainly recommend this apartment for your Lisbon holiday.

Gorgeous apartment, perfect location

  • 5 of 5
As New Yorkers, used to tiny living spaces, this apartment felt like a mansion to us. We enjoyed all the design elements, appreciated the clean, modern decoration style, loved the old architecture of the building itself. the kitchen pantry was stocked with basic cooking staples, which was very helpful, and we had all the cooking utensils we needed as well. Lisbon was in the middle of a dramatic heat wave when we arrived, so at first the apartment was unbearably hot, but within a day or so the management had delivered a portable air-conditioning unit, so the problem was solved. We had a great time, can't wait to return!

Santa Catarina parish was born in 1559, in an area corresponding to the slope from Príncipe Real to Boavista. It can still be considered Chiado, Bairro Alto or São Bento. Yes, is is a bit of these.

Santa Catarina is mainly a historic area. Calçada do Combro, the axis cutting the neighbourhood, portrays old and rich façades. In Santa Catarina, we find palaces converted into art schools, churches, convents. The palaces are many. Pombal Palace (Rua do Século, 65-93), where today functions the Superior School of Dance, Braancamp Palace (Pátio do Tijolo, 25), Marim Olhão Palace (Calçada do Combro, corner of Rua do Século) are just a few examples. Notice Santa Catarina Church (Paulists), in Calçada do Combro and the old Caetanos Convent, current National Conservatoire, in Rua dos Caetanos. Here, you could probably hear classical music in the street, in the mornings. The classes at the Dance School of the National Dance Conservatoire (Rua João Pereira da Rosa, 22) float in the air. It is romantic, to say the least. There is no shortage of artists in Santa Catarina.

Take a funicular trip on Bica Lift. Since 1892, it goes up and down between S. Paulo and Calhariz. It is very useful if you want to have a closer look at the river.

In terms of restaurants, the neighbourhood excels in variety. Traditional restaurants live side by side with trendy restaurants. Both will serve you well: 'Príncipe do Calhariz' (Calçada do Combro, 28/30), 'Adega das Mercês' (Travessa das Mercês, 2), both with typical Portuguese food and 'Be Gold' the trendy restaurant (Rua da Rosa, 153).

One of Lisbon's more original beauty salons, is situated in Santa Catarina, to be precise at 14D, Rua da Rosa. At 'Dress Up', the concept is 'fast make-up', that is, in ten minutes (five euros) you do the hair and a make-up for a party. There are also clothes and shoes.

At night, follow the example of those who now begin to exchange the Bairro Alto bustle for Bica. Funicular, where all waiters and DJs are actors and Bicaense (Rua Bica Duarte Belo, 44 and 42A, respectively) are just two of the most frequented places.

And because the views are some of the best things in Lisbon, Santa Catarina belvedere (known as Adamastor), deserves a visit. Next to the belvedere, at Noobai Café, you will spend one of the best evenings of your life. The terrace is very pleasant and River Tagus looks like a movie setting. Try the salads, toasts and teas. On Fridays and Saturdays closing time is at midnight.
