Bright and spacious right in the centre of Lisbon overlooking Rossio Square
This bright and modern apartment is a spacious (60m2) 1-bedroom property located right in the centre of Lisbon overlooking the Rossio square. It has been completely renovated and refurbished recently and enjoys lots of natural light.
A double sofa that converts into two beds in the living room means that up to 4 guests can stay here comfortably.
The living room has a truly marvelous view over central Lisbon, and includes a sofa-bed and other 3 sofas.
The kitchen is open to the living room and is fully equipped with all the modern facilities you need to cater and cook for yourself - washing machine, dish washer, gas oven and stove, microwave and fridge with freezer, as well as all the necessary cutlery and crockery.
The bedroom has a large double bed (140 cm wide), and external windows to let in the light and air. It has plenty of storage space and bedside tables with lamp.
There is a clean and modern bathroom with bathtub and a small window.
The apartment has a good temperature both during Winter and Summer. Nevertheless, in the wintertime the entire space is heated with two electric heaters, if needed. During Summer, the windows at each side of the apartment can be left open to keep the accommodation cool as the breeze passes through the entire property, and a fan is available.
Cable TV (100 channels), free high-speed Wi-Fi Internet (30 mbps), CD/DvD/Radio/MP3 player are all available and provided.
This apartment is located in the Pena district, very close to the central Rossio square, Baixa and Chiado area.
The street of the apartment has no cars and is a dead end, guaranteeing peaceful and relaxing time.
The main feature of Pena is that it is a plateau, from which two main slopes descend, facing Martin Moniz and Avenida da Liberdade. It begins at the north-east of Rossio and extends to Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, commonly known by Campo de Santana. The streets on the two slopes are twisting and irregular, leading to many beautiful alleys and side streets.
There are many small cafés and restaurants here, and it is just a short walk to the major tourist areas of Baixa, Rossio and the Praça do Comércio, with a lovely riverfront area.
This neighborhood is also very close to the famous Bairro Alto, a nightlife area, which can be reached after walking past Rossio or by taking the Elevador da Glória, the oldest funicular in Lisbon.
Sintra village is definitely worth a visit and very easy to reach as the train station with direct trains to Sintra (20 minutes) is just 200 mts away from the apartment.
Cascais village is also beautiful and has nice beaches. Really recommended. You can reach it in a fantastic train trip (25 mins) close to the sea. The train station (Cais do Sodré) to Cascais is just 1,5 kms away from the apartment.
There are many transport options nearby. The metro stations (different lines) are at 100 mts as well as buses, trams and trains. Most touristic and popular tram/bus routes depart from Rossio/Praça da Figueira Squares, which are 100 mts away from the apartment.
Come and Enjoy!

Beautiful Apartment..Great location..Lovely Hosts and one very special neighbor
We cannot add to anything said already about the apartment. Beautiful view, comfortable bed, very quiet, extremely close to buses, trams, metro, trains that take you anywhere you,d like to go. Also lots of stores and markets and bakeries and bars within a very short walk. I would like to add one more anecdote. On our third morning a series of unfortunate events occured that resulted in us shutting the apartment door with our keys inside. We did not have a phone that worked in Europe so had now way to get in touch with Ana or Leonor. We thought about going to the police or even the US embassy but took the one in a million chance to ring all the doorbells in the 5 room building. One lovely neighbor answered and helped us to look up Ana and Leonor`s phone numbers and then she called them even though she was running late for a meeting. Leonor contacted the cleaning person who had the extra set of keys who then came to meet us and let us in. I tell this story to illustrate what we found out about Lisbon. How friendly and helpful everyone we met were but the people on the Travessa are extra special. Come to Lisbon, spend 4 to 5 days and definitely stay here!!!
Dear Paul, we are glad you enjoyed your stay in Lisbon and at our apartment. The episode you describe is what we believe staying at our apartment offers: a great stay and experience and the feel of Lisbon like a local!

Joni and Barry from Ontario, Canada
Comfortable, clean apartment with great views.
Had a great stay over the New Year period. Fantastic views of the fireworks were a bonus! The apartment was well maintained, clean and comfortable with most of the things you need for a short stay. Plenty of hot water, although there was a knack to getting the correct shower temperature! Bed was comfy and although in a central location, it was quiet at night. Would definitely return.
In the heart of Lisbon
Loved the condo! It is right in the heart of Lisbon with stunning views. The owner was very helpful to provide information about the area and transportation. Everything is within walking distance. We are definitely coming back !
Thank you, Ana and André! We had a fabulous time and loved your apartment.
This apartment has a perfect location and the place was spacious, having everything we needed.
Thank you very much for your kind words! It was a pleasure receiving you in Lisbon.
Hope to see you in your next visit to Lisbon:)

The main feature of Pena is that it is a plateau, from which two main slopes descend, facing Martin Moniz and Avenida da Liberdade. It begins at the north-east of Rossio and extends to Campo dos Mártires da Pátria, commonly known by Campo de Santana. The streets on the two slopes are twisting and irregular, leading to many beautiful alleys and side streets. Being one of the oldest districts in Lisbon, one is overwhelmed by the diversity of its buildings, constructed in accordance with the successive types of architecture through centuries. Wrought iron balconies from the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries can be seen everywhere. In constant dialogue with the wrought iron are the glazed tiles of the façades - a style reportedly brought from Brazil after the 16th century. Pena is a quiet neighbourhood where one can find the Italian and German embassies, the birthplace of Amália Rodrigues and the place where Luis de Camões is supposed to have lived his last days (Calçada de Santana, nº 139) It is very close to the famous Bairro Alto, a nightlife area, which can be reached after walking down Rossio or by taking the Elevador do Lavra, the oldest funicular in Lisbon. This 120 year old elevator goes every 15 minutes down to Rua das Portas de Santo Antão, the location of many excellent fish restaurants as recommended by many city guides. Sintra village is definitely worth a visit and very easy to reach as the train station with direct trains to Sintra (20 minutes) is just 200 mts away from the apartment. Cascais village is also beautiful and has nice beaches. Really recommended. You can reach it in a fantastic train trip (25 mins) close to the sea. The train station (Cais do Sodré) to Cascais is just 1,5 kms away from the apartment. Come and enjoy!
