About this apartment
My charming 1 bedroom apartment is the perfect base when visiting Lisbon.
The house is located in Bairro Alto, at the top of one of the seven hills of Lisbon, São Roque. It is close to transports and the historical center. The apartment is less than two minutes walk from the overlook of São Pedro de Alcântara, numerous restaurants, and nightlife, typical of the area.
It is an attic on a fourth floor, without elevator, in an old building but that enjoy wide stairs. The decor features neutral tones with touches of natural wood. The apartment has a small balcony.
The living area is light and airy with a cozy and typical design with lovely finishing touches. Relax on the sofa (that is also a sofa bed that fits 1 person), hang out with your friends, make yourself at home! It’s a welcoming and inviting space where you can kick back and relax.
If cooking is your thing, you’re going to love spending time in the kitchen. All the appliances are modern and easy to use - you’ll enjoy showing off your culinary skills here!
In the bedroom, get a wonderful night’s rest on the super comfortable bed, fitted with fresh, luxury linens. There is plenty of storage and a wardrobe where you can get unpacking and start feeling at home right away.
Freshen up in the lovely bathroom - wake up in the mornings with the fantastic shower.
My property will be professionally cleaned before your stay.
You will have the whole place to yourself. We will provide you with the basic supplies for cooking and shower. The whole place is available.
You may occasionally hear noise from neighbouring apartments, as most buildings in Lisbon aren’t soundproofed!
My friends at Hostmaker are looking after my home while I am away; they are a short-lets management service team who know Lisbon like the back of their hand! I trust them to look after you and give you a warm welcome! If you have any questions about your stay, please get in touch through the channel platform.
Known as the bohemian district in the heart of Lisbon’s old town, Barrio Alto transforms dramatically as day turns to night, from picturesque shopping district to a creative, hip neighborhood of trendy bars and restaurants. For the best sunset views in the neighborhood, head to the Miradouro de Santa Catarina, a viewing platform with cafes and bars where you can meet people of all cultures. The lookout is currently closed for renovations but is expected to reopen soon with nightly live music at sunset. You’ll be able to enjoy views over the city and the river Tejo with a glass of Portuguese wine. You can enjoy a slice of Lisbon’s history by riding the beautifully restored 19th-century yellow funicular railway, the Elevador da Bica, up or down the steep hill in the Bica area.
For a bite to eat, try Bistro 100 Maneiras for a high-quality evening meal where old Yugoslavian dishes are presented alongside traditional Portuguese cuisine. If you want to try some dishes from Asia, you should go to Chiado. Meanwhile, Adega Machado is a small Portuguese restaurant hidden away from the usual tourist trail. The menu is expensive but the addition of brilliant traditional Fado music makes it worth the premium prices. For that perfect evening drinking spot, head to The Old Pharmacy; a bar of small and intimate table arrangements that used to be a
working pharmacy. Alternatively, in the Lower Bairro Alto, you can visit the Park Bar where you can enjoy the views from the rooftop across the River Tejo as you sip on a drink amongst the decorative plants. Park is situated on the roof of a multi-storey car park and offers great cocktails, delicious burgers and brilliant views in a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere.
You'll find the metro station with 3 metro lines, the nearest being the blue and green lines. Also, you'll be walking distance from almost every monument in Lisbon. In the case that you will be traveling by car, you can find several paid parks in the neighbourhood. One on the Rua da Misericórdia, one at Largo Camões, another on the Restauradores and one on the Calçada do Combro. All are close to the apartment but the Largo Camões and the one on the Rua da Misericórdia are the closest. Exploring Lisbon couldn't be easier!
