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.

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit! :) jederzeit wieder.
La atención en todo momento fue fantástica tanto por teléfono como en persona.
El piso estaba impecable, con sábanas y toallas para todos perfectamente dispuestas.
La localización inmejorable en Bairro Alto, junto a la calle Rua da Rosa. No había aparcamiento en la misma calle, pero encontramos un parking a 13€/dia a dos minutos del piso, así que allí lo dejamos tres días.
Muy recomendable, sin duda.
Super unkompliziert gewesen bei der Anreise. Alles wichtige vorher per Mail erhalten, Wohnung wie im Internet abgebildet. Sauber und sehr zentral. Sehr schöne Wohnung!
gutes Apartment, sehr zentral, gute öffentliche Verkehrsanbindung, Supermarkt in der Nähe
Küche einfach ausgestattet, könnte mehr Geschirr, Töpfe etc geben, Geschirr war nicht sauber, sehr hellhörig
Casa molto carina, pulita, ben attrezzata, con tutti i comfort. Posizione ottima nel cuore della città.
Attenzione solo a chi ha problemi motori, la casa ha parecchie scale e scalette e per muoversi verso i luoghi principali bisogna affrontare stradine ripide e numerosi scalini (il tutto però nello stile puro di Lisbona). Altra piccola annotazione: a giugno vicinissimo a casa c'è un centro ricreativo in piena attività, molto suggestivo e popolare, ma anche un po' rumoroso fino a tarda notte.
Noi siamo stati per tre notti e ci siamo trovati benissimo. Se dovessimo tornare ci piacerebbe soggiornare nuovamente in una casetta così.
The Apartment is prefectly located, clean and has everything you Need. Filipe and his Team Are very friendly and helpfull. He also allowed us to Check out two Hours later, which was very kind. I highly recommend the Stay there.
We spent some days in the studio and really enjoyed the nice view of the kitchen-window. It is no worth cooking in the apartment as going out for lunch is really cheap and the kitchen is just equipped to prepare a quick sandwich or pasta, not a hole meal. Clean bathroom and rooms, only the bed is, in my opinion, very uncomfortable and not like written "getting out of the bed will be difficult" in a positive sense. Communication with the host was very easy, friendly and cooperative!!
For the last days we had to move to another apartment as they started with some demolition works next door. But this may occur at any place and WIMDU really did a good job to solve this problem. Thanks a lot for this!
Schönes Apartment, genau richtig für zwei Personen. Gute Lage und Lautstärke am Wochenende ging auch. Natürlich bekommt man Geräusche mit, aber die Lage und Ausstattung machen das Appartement trotzdem sehr gut! Immer wieder gern :)
Wir waren zu viert in der Wohnung. Perfekte Lage, etwas hellhörig, aber seinen Preis absolut wert. Einfache und perfekte Abwicklung mit dem Vermieter.
Nice apartment and very friendly and helpful hosts. Only we were missing a wardrobe or some shelfs to store our cloths. The area was perfect to start exploring Lisbon. At night a bit loud.
