Prime location - Bairro Alto 1B
|Address||Travessa dos Inglesinhos, 1200 Lisbon, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
This is a modern and cozy apartment, full of character and light, set on the first floor (Drto) of an ancient typical Lisbon building in the trendy and vibrant Bairro Alto, known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. This apartment is part of a group of 7 apartments that we have in this building.
The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, a nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, ready to cook home made meals. Towels and linens at your disposal are included in the price and satelite Tv and wireless internet as well.
To set forth on a discovery of Lisbon, there is no better place to begin: the tram a few steps away, international brand shops at Chiado and the more daring fashions in Bairro Alto, where you also have the trendiest restaurants of Lisbon. Bica neighbourhood, close by, is becoming a night haven for artists and intellectuals. But this does not destroy the calm and charm of Rua das Chagas. For theatre and opera lovers there are three theatre houses at a five minute distance, S. Carlos, S. Luiz and Trindade Theatres.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.
Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to see.
Luís de Camões square, which any Lisboner will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has.
But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.
This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).
It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.
Walk the streets with care, the movement on the sidewalks is always heavy and the trams are constantly passing.

Reviews of this property
We had a great time in a very nice, clean and renovated apartment in a lively neighborhood. Everything we needed was in the apartment and we had good communication with Margarida. The only minor thing: the noise of the street at night. So if you are not used to that, make sure to have some earplugs with you.

Das Appartement ist wirklich nur zur empfehlen! Es liegt mitten in der Altstadt Bairro Alto ist ein super Ausgangsort für alle geplanten
Ausflüge/Besichtigungen. Abends muss man zwar damit rechnen, dass es lebendig im Stadtteil wird, da fußläufig alles erreichbar ist.
Das Appartment selbst ist sehr hübsch renoviert und eingerichtet. Es hat alles was man braucht, ist sehr sauber und für zwei Personen wirklich ideal. Es ist durch viele Fenster sehr hell und man hat einen großartigen Ausblick über die Dächer von Lissabon.
Einchecken mit den erhaltenen Codes für die Türen war problemlos möglich.
Wir waren mit unserer Unterkunft sehr zufrieden. Die Lage ist super zentral und wir würden diese Unterkunft gern wieder buchen. Wir empfehlen die Wohnung allerdings nicht Personen, die keine 4 Stockwerke die Treppe hochlaufen können. Wir haben nach den Treppen aber jedes Mal die wunderschöne Aussicht aus den vielen Fenstern genossen.
alloggio in buona posizione e silenzioso, ma con arredi di basso livello, scarse le sedie (3x4persone), scarsi i punti di appoggio per valigie e vestiti, scarsa manutenzione (rubinetto della cucina rotto e scarichi poco liberi), finestra del soggiorno vecchia e pesante da sollevare.
il servizio di pulizia scarsissimo (pavimento sporco e pieno di polvere), copriletto macchiato. Soluzione che non consiglierei. Marco
Todo perfecto.Un pequeño apartamento muy limpio y centrico,,la unica pega la falta de ascensor. El recibimiento a nuestra llegada perfecta, jhonas encantador
La chica que nos atendió era muy amable, nos trajo un mapa y nos indicó todo lo importante.
En cuanto al apartamento hemos ido en julio y hacía muchísimo calor y no contaba con aire acondicionado por lo tanto era necesario abrir ventanas. Lo peor de eso es que hay bares y discotecas y la gente pasa gritando y no te deja dormir, si cierras la ventana te mueres de calor y si la abres oyes los gritos.
No tiene armario, tiene un pequeño burro con 5 perchas. No tiene tendal por lo que tuvimos que usar el burro para poder secar algo de ropa.
En la cocina hace muchísimo calor y huele un poco a humedad.
A pesar de eso el resto estaba bien.
Buona struttura, arredamento essenziale, check-in e check out facilissimi. Quartiere molto caratteristico, Bairro Alto, anche se un po' rumoroso la notte, nel complesso comunque tutto ok. Connessione wi-fi ottima. Qualche problema in bagno dovuto all'assenza di luce. Rapporto qualità-prezzo ottimo.

Appartement magnifique, très propre, spacieux et pas trop loin du centre! Bien équipé (sauf le lave-vaisselle qui était en panne) mais le reste était très bien! L'hôte nous a donné de très bon conseils pour nos visites/sorties. Seul petit point négatif : l'appartement est situé à côté d'un bar bruyant le we.
This apartment has its charme!
We were 6 Persons and all of us were content with the apartment. It is beautifully furnished and the location is just perfect. I would recommend it to every one who wants to have a great time in Lisbon and enjoys night life. The apartment is not far from the streets that are full with bars. So for families with kids it can get loud at night but more because the walls are very thin and you can also hear every move from the room next door.
The check in was without any problems and we had a contact number for any questions. Pedro was very friendly and he introduced us with the help of a map to the important sight seeings and stations in Lisbon. That was very helpful.
All in all we enjoyed our stay!
