Overview

About the property

Bright Flat with Wide Terrace and River Views, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Living room, 1 Bath

This elegant, spacious and sunny apartment with a large terrace (55 mq) and extensive views over the old city and down to the harbour is located in one of historic Lisbon’s most glamorous neighbourhoods – the Chiado.

This is what has always been considered the noblest part of the city, with its quiet streets and squares lined with imposing mansions, museums, churches, art galleries, bookshops, and the odd government ministry. The nearby (less than a minute walk) Praça de Camões and Largo do Chiado (and its cafés Brasileira and Benard) are privileged meeting points for Lisboetas and tourists alike, who are drawn by the impressive concentration of theatres, exclusive shops and high quality restaurants.

The 28 tram stops around the corner from the flat, and it is not much farther to the Bica cable-car (elevador) or the metro. A ten-minute walk down the hill brings you to the Cais do Sodre train station (Estoril-Cascais line) or the ferry for trips across the Tagus.

World-famous theaters such as the Trindade or São Carlos Opera are close by, as is the more exuberant and down-to-earth Barrio Alto neighborhood, where the streets become narrower and the nightlife more animated. This is the true home of the soulful fado music of old Lisbon, with a wide variety of venues quite literally at your fingertips.

Natural sunlight thus floods the apartment in both morning and afternoon.

The master bedroom has a double bed, while the second bedroom is provided with two single beds. Extra bed linen and towels are available. Baby bed, high chair and other child facilities can be provided on request at no extra charge.

The kitchen is fully equipped and supplied with all the culinary basics (coffee, tea, sugar, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper and other spices, etc.). If you prefer not to use the cooker, you can always try the barbecue grill on the terrace (charcoal provided).

Supermarket, grocer’s, bakery, newsstand, cafés, hairdressers, banks, etc. are all very close indeed. Also, two covered parking garages are located within 100 metres.

Nearby is the Santa Catarina belvedere, with outstanding views over the harbour, while a short walk through Bairro Alto leads to the pretty Principe Real park, which has a play area for children.

The 28 tram takes about 10 minutes in one direction from the flat to reach the equally romantic Estrêla Garden. In the other direction it passes through the Baixa shopping district before winding through the old neighbourhoods around St. George’s Castle.

Guestbook comments from the owner

for the second time we spent a week in this apartment



wy two times, and maybe more ?



first because of the situation, less than 100 meters away from the Praça Luis de Camoes and from the metro station Baixa-Chiado



the apartment is also charming, with nice and plain furniture



and, last but not least, a 60 m2 terrace with a diagonal vue to the Ponte 25 de Abril"

Fantastic apartment with a spectacular view from the terrace!

  • 5 of 5

We loved Lisbon and this apartment!

We were met at the apartment by Alberto's lovely friend Cristina, who gave us a quick tour and she was happy to answer any questions we had.

This apartment is far more spacious than it looks in the photos. There were only 2 of us staying, but there would still be plenty of space for 4 people. The unusual layout adds to it’s charm.

The outside terrace is huge with an amazing view of the bridge over the Tagus. It is well furnished with a table, chairs, sunloungers and BBQ. Perfect for relaxing after a day of sight seeing. The large sun lounge was also ideal for eating in the evening, when it was a bit windy on the terrace.

The kitchen is well equipped and also had a selection of the basic requirements for self catering - Condiments, coffee, sugar etc.

The bed was very comfortable and the shower was always hot and powerful enough.

The location is perfect for the metro, trams and trains, for getting around all the main sights.

There is a good selection of restaurants & bars close by, but there is also a couple of mini markets and a butchers shop just around the corner. The market is a short walk down the hill, for fresh fish, fruit & vegetables. So self catering is no problem if you don't want to eat out every night. .

A couple of things that weren't a problem for us, but others may want to consider before booking:

There is no lift and it is on the 3rd floor. However, it gets easier the more you do it, and the view from the terrace is worth the climb!

As said in previous reviews, it can be a bit noisy at night. However, you do have to remember you are right in the heart of a vibrant area of the city. If you want a quiet area, then this is not the place for you.

We met Alberto on our first night at the apartment because I had to phone him when we stupidly locked ourselves out! However, he was very nice about it and came over to meet us and sorted it out quickly. It was nice to meet and chat to him, but thankfully we didn't need to bother him for the rest of the week. I am sure if you had any issues during your stay, he would be very helpful.

I would recommend this apartment for the location, comfort and view. If we are ever in Lisbon again, I wouldn't hesitate to book this apartment again.

Thank you Alberto and Cristina :)

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Alberto was a great host. He met us, explained the apartment, gave some helpful tips re local shopping, reasturants, the area. We had a few questions after he left and he responded to us immediately. The terrace is great, relaxing after a day of touring with a glass of wine or in the morning while having coffee and planning your day.

I would recommend it, exactly as pictured.

Excellent, with one BIG negative

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful apartment and terrace in an excellent location, except for between 11:00 pm and 8:00 am. The noise from the street is unbelievable. You cannot sleep with the windows open without sleeping pills and noise canceling headphones. Then, when you close the windows, the heat makes sleeping very challenging. I suggested to the owners that they purchase some fans, ad they are very accommodating and responsive, so they'll probably take care of it. Truly, otherwise, this is a fantastic apartment.

Fabulous relaxing stay in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for a week and really enjoyed our first trip to Lisbon. The apartment was clean and comfortable. Alberto was very helpful and on hand for sorting out any issues. The terrace was fab and a real asset to be able to unwind after a hard day's sightseeing. He very kindly let us stay for several extra hours on our last day as we had a late flight home. Only other feedback would be that a folder of info would be useful about the area with where the nearest shop was or recommended restaurants, wifi etc rather than just a pile of leaflets and some dvds to play in the dvd player! Also a few bits in the kitchen like another large mug, some Tupperware for leftovers and kitchen roll would have been great touches.

Large, great location, beautiful view, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable flat, very centrally located, near countless Bairro Alto, Chiado, Bica & Estrella sights, restaurants & bars. Reasonably quiet given the location. Not fancy, but large, comfortable, well-equipped and attractive. Felt like being at home but in a city I had never visited before. Alberto is a delight to work with and so helpful. The terrace is stunning!

It is located on the third floor (no elevator) of a residential building around the corner from the Ministry of the Economy. The main façade faces east with several large windows opening into the main living room, a smaller sitting room and the master bedroom, while the west façade opens onto the terrace (50 square meters), with direct access through the kitchen or sun living room.

Natural sunlight thus floods the apartment in both morning and afternoon.

The master bedroom has a double bed, while the second bedroom is provided with two single beds. Extra bed linen and towels are available. Baby bed, high chair and other child facilities can be provided on request at no extra charge.

The kitchen is fully equipped and supplied.
