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.

Sehr unkomplizierter Kontakt, Wohnung war ok, Betten waren gut, sehr zentral, leider haben wir uns im Badezimmer nicht so wohl gefühlt, da es nicht so gut geputzt war und Besteck und Teller waren auch nicht so sauber. Dennoch war es ein guter Anlaufpunkt und alles hat wie vereinbart geklappt.
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.
The apartment is beautiful and has everything you need.
Very quiet place, only to consider parking near ..... you can not, because they are very narrow streets.
Although three minutes there is a private parking at a great price.
It located better impossible, all very close.
And the person who greeted us was very attentive and friendly.
El apartamento es precioso y tiene todo lo necesario.
El lugar muy tranquilo,solo a tener en cuenta el aparcamiento .....cerca no puedes,pues son callejuelas muy estrechas.
Aunque a 3 minutos hay un parking privado a muy buen precio.
Está situado mejor imposible,todo muy cerca.
Y la persona que nos atendió fue muy atenta y simpática.
Sin duda repetiremos
the apartment was exactly as we had been told and seen in pictures, is centrally located and is parked well away. dealing with correct and friendly hosts.
as the apartment I think it lacks a mirror more and perhaps there should be some more lamp is a bit dark at night.
el apartamento era tal cual nos habian dicho y visto en las fotos, está centrico y se aparca bien en coche. el trato con los anfitriones correcto y amable.
en cuanto al apartamento creo que le falta algún espejo mas y quizá deberia haber alguna lampara más es un poco oscuro de noche.
Beautiful apartment in a central area (tram stop just around the corner). Uncomplicated nice reception. Highly recommended!
Schönes Appartement in zentraler Umgebung (Straßenbahnhaltestelle gleich um die Ecke). Unkomplizierter netter Empfang. Zu empfehlen!
A small fine accommodation to relax and very central.
The Wimdu-service was great (information, taxi, always available).
However, the carpet in the living room could actually be replaced times.
Eine kleine feine Unterkunft zum Wohlfühlen und sehr zentral gelegen.
Der Wimdu-Service vor Ort war Klasse (Informationen, Taxibestellung, immer erreichbar).
Allerdings könnte der Teppich im Wohnzimmer tatsächlich mal ausgewechselt werden.
Central Apartment single light: I think it is a bad translation
the apartment may be unique because it is well located to access restaurants, the subway, bus or even walking and and in a very quiet street with parking places for non-paying
that is the major asset of this apartment
Unique lumineux Central Apartment : je pense que c'est une mauvaise traduction
l'appartement est peut être unique car il est bien situé pour pouvoir accéder aux restaurants, au métro, bus et ou même à pied et ce dans une rue très calme et avec des places pour stationner non payantes
c 'est l'atout majeur de cet appartement
We were a group of friends to spend some days in Lisbon! When we was there waiting Margarida, on schedule. The apartment, although it seems to be in bad area, is actually in the room at night, streets despite being "older". The floor is as it appears in the photos, something small. We were provided towels at the entrance. The bathroom is small enough for everyday use, we had had only blankets and a heater, however, we had no cold.
Fuimos un grupo de amigas a pasar unos días a Lisboa! Cuando llegamos estaba alli Margarida esperándonos, a la hora prevista. El apartamento, aunque parezca estar en mala zona, esta en realidad en la zona de ambiente por la noche, a pesar de ser calles más "viejas". El piso es tal cual sale en las fotos, algo pequeño. Se nos facilitó toallas a la entrada. El baño es bastante pequeño para el uso diario, no tuvimos mantas y había solo un calefactor, sin embargo, no pasamos frío.
