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
Ich war zum 3x mal in Lissabon. Die Wohnung ist o.k.. Leider war der Trockner defekt, das WC ist nicht befestigt.
Handtücher und Bettwäsche gibt es für die Zeit nur 1x.
The location was good especially for the BarrioAlto and for the Metro on the water. The host was available on our arrival and gave us good tourist tips and map. The apartment was only adequate. There were 2 wine glasses, one was broken, 5 glasses, no 2 the same. The bathroom needs some work. The most frustrating part was the fight each day with the Key/lick to enter the unit. This needs to be changed somehow. If you are a light sleeper this unit is not for you. There is a local cafe/ bar located across the street where patrons spill into the street and is VERY noisy until 1-2 am every night.
Aspetti positivi: posizione centrale - pulita - dotata di tutti i comfort - gestori molto disponibili (abbiamo avuto un problema con il wi fi e in brevissimo tempo sono venuti a sistemarlo)
Aspetti negativi: essendo molto centrale nel quartiere del Barrio Alto risente molto della movida notturna (rumori, schiamazzi, traffico fino all'alba) - alcuni ambienti (soprattutto il bagno) necessiterebbero di rinnovamento
Las vistas son espectáculares y apartamento está muy bien. El baño es significativamente pequeño pero la ubicación es muy buena y con los elevadores estás en el metro en menos de 10 min . Muy bien en general
Nice place, nice apartment.
El piso es bonito y la ubicacion no esta mal. No lo recomiendo a nadie para epoca con temperaturas veraniegas.La habitación donde están las camas no tiene ventilación solo una pequeña ventanita en el techo ( que estaba rota)y por la que lo unico que entran son mosquitos.
Indispensable es que le pongan aire acondicionado. Dormir alli fue un martirio.

the apartment is great. I agree with the statements of the other visitors. The View is amazing. The Location is awesome. It is very good organized - Carlos invited us to bring our luggage to his office during day of departure. But the bathroom is very small without a door. You have to notice this before booking.

die Wohnung is großartig. Ich stimme den anderen Bewertungen zu. Die Aussicht ist wunderschön. Die Lage einzigartig. Die Organisation funktioniert reibungslos. Wir könnten sogar unser Gepäck im Büro von Carlos abgeben. Aber das Badezimmer ist wirklich sehr klein und es gibt keine Tür. Sie sollten das wissen, bevor Sie buchen.
Wohnug war nicht sauber, leider sah es an den Bildern viel sauberer und schöner aus.
Ziemlich laut Nachts da schräg gegenüber eine Disco betrieben wird.
Toilette war nur zugänglich durch eine Schlafzimmer.
WiFi Code war nicht für die Gäste offen bzw Code war nicht hinterlegt.
Nach Anfrage bekommen wir den Code.
Bettdecke waren Dreckig und nicht überzogen.
Würde diese Appartment nicht mehr wählen.
Appartement agréablement concu ,bien situé dans le quartier.
Il est au rdc et seul bémol la porte d entrée est vitrée avec une simple cloison;si bien qu on se croit dans le hall de l immeuble.
Ottima posizione, appartamento con tutti confort, proprietaria molto disponibile, e ha suggerito posti bellissimi da visitare.
