Sao Bento is less than 15 minutes walking distance from Cais do Sodré Train Station. The Metro there provides access to central Lisbon in 10 minutes. Lisbon International Airport is 8 km away.
If you walk 10 minutes you´re at "Bairro Alto", known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. At night, this 17th century colorful district is transformed into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. The main streets and narrow passageways are bustling with activity of dozens of excellent traditional restaurants, «fado singing houses», cafés, and a multitude of sleek clubs and bars that stay open until late. In recent years, «Bairro Alto» is also an alternative shopping destination, for those looking for trendy design shops, art galleries and bookshops.
Bairro Alto, one of the Lisbon hippest and coolest place.
There are several buses and trams, and subway, 10 minutes away, although one can easily walk to the main points of the city. Five minutes walking is the heart of the glamorous and cosmopolitan city can still be felt in the Chiado, a place where the "new" and "old" live in harmony. Characterized by casual-chic atmosphere, with streets full of shops, fine restaurants, beautiful cobblestone, beautiful churches and timeless cafes, Chiado makes any visitor feel real Lisbon.
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 (website hidden)ís 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.

Reviews of this property
Nice stay in this clean and cute studio in a atypical neighbourhood! I recommend it! However it is not made for two adults, it would clearly be too tight! Very calm in itself (main noises from the tramway n°28, but this is completely acceptable)
Everything is available: towels, bed sheets, wifi, kitchen, washing machine.. When I decided to rent the studio longer than expected, there was no problem and Antonio's friend was helping. By the way, he is a nice host, ready to help at any time! The only issue maybe was about the 100 Euro deposit I had to pay extra, which was not mentioned on the website when I rented the flat and I only heard about it when I arrived in the room in Lisbon. I got it back of course at the end of my stay, but it took some days.. and I had to write some more texts to get the transaction done. This could be improved. Otherwise, a very good stay!!
L’appartement est très bien situé dans la partie populaire de la vieille ville, tout près de tramway 28. Rien à dire coté calme, équipements et propreté : tout est parfait.
Excellent accueil par Antonio qui est arrangeant pour les horaires d’arrivée et de départ.
En revanche, il est vraiment petit pour 2 personnes car on ne peut plus bouger une fois le lit déployé. Nous sommes plutôt autour de 18 m2 au lieu des 29 annoncés …
It was a Great Apartment, clean and good Equipment in the kitchen, but we thought it was a Little Too small for two Person
La verdad es que ibamos solo para dormir un rato antes de volver a españa de la final de la champion league y estuvimos solo 5 horas en la casa.
Las escalera para subir son como el himalaya de la pendiente que tienen, la cama superior se rompio con solo sentarse y tuve que echar el colchon al suelo. Me imagino que lo arreglaran sin problemas. Al sacar el colchon descubrimos que la limpieza era muy deficiente ya que habia mucha suciedad, un paquete de Kleenex y un emboltorio de un preservativo. La casa es pequeñita pero no se puede pedir más por el precio y la hubicación. Gracias.
Super nice contact. Small but nice apartment with great access to the scene Barrio Alto and the public transport network. The famous tram E28 even leaves from right outside the front door, which at night is a little on the one hand practically, but louder.
To this day the price, I can only recommend the apartment.
Super netter Kontakt. Kleine, aber feine Wohnung mit super Zugang zum Szeneviertel Barrio Alto und dem öffentlichen Verkehrsnetz. Die berühmte Strassenbahn E28 fährt sogar direkt vor der Haustür ab, was einerseits praktisch, nachts allerdings ein wenig lauter ist.
Zu diesem Tagespreis, kann ich die Wohnung nur empfehlen.

Tolle Wohnung in verkehrsgünstiger Lage. Organisation der Schlüsselübergabe war völlig unkompliziert und reibungslos.
Wir sind bestens von den zuständigen Kontaktleuten betreut worden und konnten unsere Zeit im schönen Lissabon
O apartamento está muito bem localizado, é bastante prático, confortável. Os equipamentos são óptimos e em perfeito estado.valeu a estadia!
Il signor Costa è molto GENTILE, puntuale e professionale. Qualche secondo dopo la nostra prenotazione sul sito non ha esitato a contattarci telefonicamente
L'appartamento si trova tra Bairro Alto (quartiere della movida notturna) e São Bento, un quartiere apparentemente più tranquillo
I SUPERMERCATI non mancano, distano circa 10 minuti a piedi
Dall'appartamento, alla prima METRO disponibile (ovvero Baixa-Chiado), è necessario fare una salita ragguardevole che però si potrebbe evitare usando l'elettrico 28 (che ferma proprio sotto casa, ma è quasi sempre inutilizzabile perché pieno di turisti).
Per quanto riguarda la SICUREZZA ci sarebbero da fare alcuni interventi:
– Le prese elettriche sono staccate
– La ringhiera, che dovrebbe agevolare la salita al piano di sopra, è instabile
– Uno scalino che conduce all'appartamento, dal portone principale dell'edificio, traballa
Camera da LETTO: molto carina, in mansarda e dotata di una finestrella.
La LOCATION è il punto forte dell'appartamento: da Baixa-Chiado si raggiungono i principali quartieri di Lisbona, la stazione ferroviaria e la metro.
Lo STAFF è cortese e disponibile, sia per dare indicazioni che per aiutare gli ospiti: appena arrivati ci hanno aiutato a trasportare i bagagli e muniti di una cartina, consigliandoci dei punti di ristoro per la prima sera
Ottima scelta appartamento rispettata le aspettative.
Nice flat, nice contact, we had a lot of fun. Thank you!
