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.

Very nice appartment, clean, spacious, nice design, the only downside is the streetnoise on friday and saturday night, so if your planning on an early night in go for an appartment higher in the building and not on the ground floor. We changed after one night and had the best appartment ever in the same building but totally quiet! It's also a good option to just join the party at night outside because it's a great atmosphere out there with very good cocktails and nice music!
Tiago was waiting for us on arrival at the house in Lisbon, the apartment is located next to the cathedral of Lisbon, is a good place for a holiday. The apartment is very clean, nice, and everything is pretty accessible from the point at which it is located. I recommend the apartment to stay in Lisbon.
Tiago nos estuvo esperando a la llegada a la casa en Lisboa, el piso está situado al lado de la catedral Se de Lisboa, es un buen lugar para pasar unas vacaciones.
El apartamento está muy limpio, es bonito, y todo es bastante accesible desde el punto en el cuál está ubicado.
Recomiendo el piso para estancias en Lisboa.
Impeccable accommodation in the center of Lisbon. All areas except Belem are within walking distance. We enjoyed ourselves very much.
Untadelige Unterkunft im Zentrum von Lissabon. Alle Stadtteile außer Belem sind zu Fuß zu erreichen. Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen.

À 2 minutes à peine de bairro alto à pied bien sûre ! Je recommande vivement cet appartement et j y retournerais si jamais je devais repartir à Lisbonne ! Muito obrigada à Tiago
Lovely apartment in the middle of it all, you should be aware that the moment can be a little chilly here in the winter months. It is not very big but very well equipped for 4 adults.
Dejlig lejlighed midt i det hele, man skal dog være opmærksom på at den p.t. kan være lidt kølig her i den kolde tid.
Den er heller ikke særlig stor men dog ganske godt indrettet til 4 voksne personer.
We had a fantastic week in Lissabon, the flat was perfect and we had a very warm welcome by Carla. We can only recommend the flat, which is also in the Centre of Lisbon.
Great spot, perfect view, friendly people! Absolute must for Lissabon!
Nice Studio, very comfortable. However it is sometimes noisy because of the neighbours and people entering the building. The huge glass front door of the apartment makes that the studio lights up during the night when people enter the building. We enjoyed the stay though and were pleased with the accomodation. Would be nice to have some coat hangers near the door :)
L'appartement se situe dans un immeuble bruyant. L'isolation phonique n'est vraiment pas optimale. Salle de bain peu pratique, douche très petite et inadaptée.
Die Wohnung ist aufgrund ihrer Lage definitiv zu empfehlen Supermarkt, Kaffees und alles was man sonst so braucht gibt es alles ums Eck! Das szeneviertel Barrio Alto hat vorallem Nachts viel zu bieten und ist wirklich nen Katzensprung entfernt auch so ist es sehr am Zentrum gelegen. Nachts kanns schonmal was lauter werden aber das fanden wir sehr entspannend! Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber gewesen, das Bad und vorallem die Dusche ein wenig eng aber geht in Ordnung.. Ein Föhn wäre nicht schlecht gewesen aber sonsten alles TOP!! :)
