Prime location - Bairro Alto 1B
|住所||Travessa dos Inglesinhos, 1200 Lisbon, ポルトガル|
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.

The apartment is on the 2nd floor and located well where the restaurants as well as best ice cream parlour is. You need to be relatively fit to stay in this neighbourhood as there are a lot of steep gradients!
The apartment itself is ok we paid around £50 a night and for this price I was expecting more. The kitchen itself looks very nice however it was not well equipped with basic items such as bowls, salt and pepper, sugar not provided. This is a must as we had to then purchase from new even when staying just for three nights. The apartment bathroom needs toilet roll holder, there was some mould, also needs a place where you can place where you can put shampoo, soap etc. No toiletries are provided.
We did not manage to get the TV working but that was not the end of the world as we were on holiday - a message in portugese was mentioned on the screen which we couldn't understand and unfortunately was not fixed whilst on our stay. We were also charged 8 euros for the 3 nights and I have just realised now that it should have been 6 according to the description. A light was not working in the apartment as well.
Overall its an OK place to stay given the price maybe we have too much of a high expectation having stayed in 5 different countries with Wimdu. Some small improvements will go a big way.
It is a nice apartment in the bar district bairro alto. Eventough there are a lot of people outside, there is not much noise. the kitchen is small and was very uncleaned (garbage hasn't been put away, fridge wasn't cleaned, teakettle had still water inside). The apartment has an ugly oldish smell. But the location is very central and the arrangement with the code instead of a key to the apartment is very smart.
The Flat is very nice,confortable and very close to city center and metro station.All around there are a lot of nice restaurantes.
If i will come back to Lisboa i will choose margarida's flat for sure.
Nice appartment, very friendly and helpful reception.
Locationwise also perfect.
Less appealing were the low amount of natural light, the ants and noise when raining.
This is a very beautiful and very clean Appartment in the middle of the nightlife in Lisboa!
Also the house keeper and all comunication is very fast and friendly!
Next time we get to Lisboa we like to get back here!
What a great apartment! The view is amazing! The location perfectly suited in the old part of Lisbon. You can walk in a few minutes into the city centre. The flat was very clean! We really enjoyed our stay here and I wish I could have taken the comfortable bed with me. The bed is more than big enough for two persons. Apartment is equiped with everything you need. (Towels, kitchen equipment,..) Absolutely recommendable.
Everything was fine !!!
Very nice and comfortable Appartement. It is near the "nightlife" of lisbon, the Bairro Alto, with lots of bars and places. Very friendly and helpful owners. We (group of 6) enjoyed our trip to lisbon.
Great, beautiful and clean apartment in perfect location, super nice and helpful host - recommended us where to go, what to do and where to eat - we took the advice and were 100% happy with that!!! We totally recomment that apartment :)
Great stay with a very accommodating host. We had a great time in the heart of Lisbon. Lots of action in the neighborhood. Loads of restaurants, cafes and interesting points of interest. Highly recommended.
