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
The apartment is newly renovated, modern furnished, equipped with kitchen utensils, towels, WiFi. Everything in the description and shown in the pictures. The old walls keep the room temperature cool, if it should be a cold because there were enough blankets. The contact with Tiago in advance of the trip was very friendly, as with Carla on the day of our arrival. Carla gave us very helpful tips and answered all our questions thoroughly. Only later we realized how important your information as metro ticket, shopping, etc. were. On the day of departure we had to leave the keys in the apartment and close the door. Bureaucratic handover of the apartment was spared us. The apartment is very centrally located in the lively Bairro Alto where you will meet a lot of students and tourists. This is a big advantage. The apartment is located on the ground floor, so you get all the noise of the street. In particular, on 24 April, in the evening before the day of freedom, celebration funny people of the city have celebrated deep into the night in Bairro Alto. If you do not want to celebrate so late Ohrenstöppsel are recommended. Overall we are very satisfied with the booking of the apartment and recommend this studio.
Die Wohnung ist frisch renoviert, modern eingerichtet, mit Küchenutensilien, Handtüchern, WLAN ausgestattet. Alles wie in der Beschreibung und auf den Bildern dargestellt. Die alten Mauern halten die Zimmertemperatur angenehm kühl, falls es einem kalt sein sollte gab es genug Decken da. Der Kontakt mit Tiago im Vorfeld der Reise war sehr freundlich, ebenso mit Carla am Tag unserer Ankunft. Carla hat uns sehr hilfreiche Tipps gegeben und hat alle unsere Fragen ausgiebig beantwortet. Erst später merkten wir, wie wichtig Ihre Informationen zu z.B. Metroticket, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten usw. waren. Am Tag der Abreise mussten wir nur die Schlüssel in der Wohnung lassen und die Tür zumachen. Bürokratische Übergabe der Wohnung wurde uns erspart.
Das Appartement ist sehr zentral gelegen, in dem belebten Viertel Bairro Alto, wo sich viele Studenten und Touristen treffen. Das ist ein großer Vorteil. Die Wohnung befindet sich im Erdgeschoss, daher kriegt man alle Geräusche der Straße mit. Insbesondere am 24. April, am Abend vor dem Tag der Freiheit, haben die feierlustigen Menschen der Stadt bis tief in die Nacht hinein in Bairro Alto gefeiert. Falls man nicht so spät mitfeiern möchte, sind Ohrenstöppsel empfehlenswert.
Insgesamt sind wir mit der Buchung der Wohnung sehr zufrieden und empfehlen dieses Studio weiter.
Good apartment !
The appartment is cosy and located in the old Graça district, where the charming old tram 28 takes you. We were given a warm welcome by our friendly and helpful hostess. There was clean linen for everyone and the beds were comfortable. We had a most enjoyable stay and will certainly come back here.
Studio very clean and perfectly matching the pictures. Only negative point: the noise on Friday and Saturday night because it is situated in the lively district of Lisbon (do not forget the earplugs!). Apartment very close to the city center. Well received by the host.
Studio très propre et correspondant parfaitement aux photos. Seul point négatif : le bruit le vendredi et samedi soir car situé dans le quartier animé de Lisbonne ( ne pas oublier les bouchons d'oreille !). Appartement très proche du centre-ville. Bien accueilli par l'hôte.
Location is great to achieve anything. Somewhat noisy, it is the output of the quarter (but only on Fridays, Saturdays, it was quiet). Internet was partly unless one was down on the street. There was full reception. The apartment is very clean, the owner very nice. Please note, the apartment is much smaller than on the pictures. The beds were super comfortable, good matraze. We can recommend the apartment. Thank you very much
Lage ist super um alles zu erreichen. Etwas laut, den es ist das ausgangsviertel (aber nur freitags, samstag war es ruhig). Internet funktionierte teilweise nicht ausser man war unten auf der strasse. Da war voller empfang. Die wohnung ist sehr sauber, die vermieter sehr nett. Zu beachten ist, die wohnung ist viel kleiner als auf den bilder. Die betten waren super bequem, gute matraze. Wir können die wohnung weiterempfehlen. Vielen dank
The appartment was really nice for the price that they offered. I would recommend to go in the summer as there is no heating. Nevertheless, the location is perfect and the appartment has everything you need. Perfect for a couple. The host was really nice and gave the best tips in Lisbon! I would definitetely go back in the summer!
The Organization Wimdu and their hosteses are fine, very friendly and everything as agreed. I have not only affected with my studio as for the huge noise of the drinking youth of Lisbon, there was not to sleep from 23: 30 until 4 am in the morning and then also the garbage truck came at 8 am all the mess clean up sleeping in the pity. A city to rturn often with a studio from Wimdu Brigitte
Nice apartment in great location in the city. The apartment is in a nice neighborhood with lots of restaurants, cafes and small boutiques, very charming and cozy! In the evening there are many people on the streets, so that you can hear it in the front room. The house is quite old and noisy. We heard the upstairs neighbors, but have not really 'suffer' from it. The apartment is situated on a hill, so you have quite a few stairs and steep roads on and off, but you can not avoid in Lisbon! Great starting angle for all the attractions in and around the city. The apartment was nicely furnished with two double bedrooms, a small bathroom, sitting room and a kitchenette. Facilities were fine, although there was now something with the drain, but there would be a handyman to look. The apartment is very cool, so that's probably good for the summer. Wifi did indeed good. Tip for travelers to Lisbon: buy a type of chip card ("Viva Viagem"), this can be bought from vending machines at metro stations. The card costs 50 cents and can be easily recharged in the machine and at various kiosks. This card can be used in metro, tram, bus and lifts (funiculars), it saves a lot of money and hassle!
Leuk appartement op goede locatie in de stad. Het appartement ligt in een leuke wijk met veel restaurantjes, cafeetjes en kleine boetiekjes; erg sfeervol en gezellig! 's Avonds zijn er veel mensen op straat, dus dat hoor je ook wel in de voorste kamer. Het huis is vrij oud en gehorig. We hoorden de bovenburen wel, maar hebben hier niet echt 'last' van gehad. Het appartement ligt bovenop een heuvel, dus je moet aardig wat trappen en steile wegen op en af, maar daar ontkom je niet aan in Lissabon! Prima uitvalshoek voor alle attracties in en rond de stad. Het appartement was mooi ingericht met twee kamers met tweepersoonsbed, een kleine badkamer, zitkamer en een keukentje. Faciliteiten waren prima, ondanks dat er nu iets was met de afvoer, maar daar zou een klusjesman naar kijken. Het appartement is erg koel, dus dat is waarschijnlijk wel lekker voor de zomer. Wifi deed het trouwens ook goed.
Tip voor reizigers naar Lissabon: koop een soort van OV-chipkaart ("Viva Viagem"), deze is te koop bij de automaten bij de metrohaltes. De kaart kost 50 cent en kan gemakkelijk worden opgeladen bij de automaat en bij verschillende kioskjes. Deze kaart is te gebruiken in metro, tram, bus en de liftjes (funiculars), het scheelt een hoop geld en gedoe!
Very good place to be! in the middle of all the restaurants, cafe's. but still a very quite clean place, good voor starting the day!
The hostess was very kind, helped us with everything.
