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 for this host's other properties
have always had good experience with Wimdu; good housing, good service, rapid assistance with questions and problems.
Apartment was good, especially very quiet and very clean
bisher immer gute Erfahrungen mit Wimdu gemacht; gute Wohnungen, guter Service, rasche Hilfe bei Fragen und Problemen.
Wohnung war gut, vor allem sehr ruhig und sehr sauber
The accommodation was basic (in decoration, etc.) but sufficient for us. Central location, enough beds, wifi, tv, 2 bathrooms. As advertised. (we missed a toaster and a coffee machine)
Communications with the host was good. But the handover of the key was a bit unlucky. We arrived in the evening 9 pm, and while on the phone everything was ok, the guy who brought the key was late. So we had to wait up to 30 minutes outside. Not a deal breaker, but a point for attention (don't let a family with kids wait 30 minutes in a, for them, completely unknown location:) ... I will deduct 1 full point for this.
So, I was going to give a 7/10 (8 for the basic, but as advertised, accommodation and 1 minus point for the key-handover) but I will give 1 full point extra because the people at the office really took good care of us the last day ...
... we had an evening flight (10 pm), but had to check out at 11 am (normal procedure). The people in the office offered the following solution for our luggage. We could store the luggage at their office until 7 pm, so we could enjoy another, near full, day in Lisbon. At 7 pm we picked up our luggage, and the office called a taxi for us. Top marks for that!
So, all in all, a great stay!
A well deserved 8/10
very very noisy as there is a night bar that opens 22h so there are people and music has thoroughly until 5am
over the sofa on which ns was broken slept on a part then to sleep well at all
and especially given the price of the rental ns ns expected a lot better
Fortunately the only positive is that the lady who ns received was very cheerful and very friendly
rue très très bruyante car il y a un bar de nuit qui ouvre a 22h il y a donc des gens et de la musique a fond jusqu a 5h du matin
de plus le canapé sur lequel ns dormions était cassé sur un partie alors pour dormir pas bien du tout
et surtout vu le prix de la location ns ns attendions a beaucoup mieux
heureusement le seul point positif c'est que la dame qui ns a reçu était très souriante et tres sympathique
Light Central Apartment is located near a metro station, about 7 minutes. In the main street, we found a cafe that even open on Sunday had for breakfast, also a homely bar with a very good fish, other restaurants at Rossi..wir it ran on foot. (Already about 35 minutes)
You can complain about the Bad..in the shower tray is a strange covering (plastic coating?) Who has moved up to u because you have to draufsteigen..er dissolves partially, the easy going not. The bathroom I first cleaned, the mirror is down blind, the towel rack came off the wall when we wanted to hang the towel. New sponges I bought, the old ones were very alt..den shower curtain I have also cleaned, were off black mold traces. Cooked we do not have. The beds were i.o. Unfortunately, we could see the front door several times not unlock and it took about 10 minutes to try until they could be then open.
The shower needs to be renovated and the door lock to be replaced or repaired.
The transfer on arrival was nice, also the Tips for Trips.
Das Licht Central Apartment befindet sich nahe einer Metrostation, ca. 7 Minuten. In der Hauptstraße fanden wir ein Cafe das selbst am Sonntag offen hatte zum frühstücken, ebenfalls ein heimisches Lokal mit sehr gutem Fisch, weitere Lokale am Rossi..wir sind es zu Fuß gelaufen. (schon ca. 35 Min)
Zu bemängeln ist das Bad..in der Duschwanne ist ein eigenartiger Belag (Kunststoffbeschichtung?) der sich hochgeschoben hat, u da muss man draufsteigen..er löst sich teilweise, das geht einfach gar nicht. Das Bad habe ich erstmal geputzt, der Spiegel ist unten blind, der Handtuchhalter kam aus der Wand als wir das Handtuch aufhängen wollten. Neue Putzschwämme habe ich gekauft, die alten waren sehr alt..den Duschvorhang habe ich ebenfalls gereinigt, waren schwarze Schimmelspuren dran. Gekocht haben wir nicht. Die Betten waren i.o. Leider konnten wir die Haustüre mehrmals nicht aufschließen u es hat ca. 10 Minuten versuchen gedauert, bis sie sich dann öffnen ließ.
Die Dusche muss renoviert u das Haustürschloß erneuert bzw. repariert werden.
Die Übergabe bei der Ankunft war nett, auch die Tips für Ausflüge.
Studio very comfortable, modern and almost new, consistent with the description.
Slightly eccentric to the heart of Lisbon. It would have been nice to have the addresses of the closest proximity to supermarkets and other services.
Located on the 3rd floor, above a small restaurant with a terrace on the street entertainment at night! (But also food and cheap beer)
Clean, comfortable but without charm.
Studio très confortable, moderne et quasi neuf, conforme au descriptif.
Légèrement excentré par rapport au cœur de Lisbonne. Il aurait été pratique de disposer des adresses les plus proches des supermarchés et autres services à proximités.
Situé au 3ème étage, au dessus d'un petit restaurant qui possède une terrasse sur la rue : animation le soir! (mais aussi plats et bière bon marché)
Propre, confortable mais sans charme particulier.
Lisbon city to see and experience ..affascinante to explore every corner to go back!
Apartment really fantastic; nice clean functional with everything you need; attic with exposed beams with a small terrace on the square; convenient to the tram and metro to reach the center of Lisbon.
Time of delivery, information, timely and accurate.
Very recommended for a stay in Lisbon.
A nice apartment, ideal for two to three people. We were greeted very friendly and not only the apartment was declared, but we got the same useful tips such as where the nearest supermarket, several bus stops, etc. The location is not right in the center, but from there everything is within easy reach, either on foot or by public. Located on a major road, but not too noisy (apart from noisy youths in one night). The apartment is simple, friendly and modern. We have felt very comfortable. The only downside: did not work all the lamps in the evening, it was quite dark.
The kitchen is equipped for the most necessary, large boiling is not possible.
Check-out is absolutely straightforward. We would definitely come back.
Ein nettes Apartment, ideal für zwei bis drei Personen. Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und nicht nur die Wohnung wurde erklärt, sondern wir bekamen gleich nützliche Tipps wie z.B. wo der nächste Supermarkt, diverse Haltestellen usw sind. Die Lage ist nicht direkt im Zentrum, aber von dort aus ist alles leicht zu erreichen, sei es zu Fuß oder mit den Öffentlichen. An einer größeren Straße gelegen , aber dennoch nicht zu laut ( abgesehen von lärmenden Jugendlichen in einer Nacht) . Die Wohnung ist einfach, freundlich und modern eingerichtet. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Einziger Minuspunkt : nicht alle Lampen funktionierten, am Abend war es recht dunkel.
Die Küche ist für das Notwendigste ausgestattet, groß Aufkochen ist nicht möglich.
Check- out ist absolut unkompliziert. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
We have been great. The house is clean and super nice addition is very well placed. Strongly recommended. Thanks for everything.
Hemos estado genial. La casa está limpia y es súper bonita, además está muy bien situada. Totalmente recomendable. Gracias por todo.
The apartment is well located and situated in a quiet location. The bathroom is a bit small and the kitchen equipment was not really useful. There had enough towels. It was ok for 4 nights to stay there.
Das Apartement ist gut gelegen und befindet sich an ruhiger Lage. Das Bad ist etwas Klein und die Kücheneinrichtung war nicht wirklich brauchbar. Dafür hatte es genug Badetücher. Es war ok für 4 übernachtungen dort zu wohnen.
The apartment is really nicely furnished. Although here and there is some dust, but mainly because of the location, it is recommended.
Das Appartement ist wirklich schön eingerichtet. Hier und da ist zwar etwas Staub, aber vor allem wegen der Lage ist es zu empfehlen.
