Lisbon apartment description

Apartment 5A
This city center modern apartment is set in a recently rebuilt building in old historic Lisbon.

This bright, daylight filled, 5th floor apartment is located on Rua Garrett, one of the most important streets of historic Lisbon, has a privilege situation in the heart of the cultural and historical part of the city (Chiado).

Very close to several museums, operas, theaters and churches. A few minutes walk takes you to the Rossio, in the Baixa, and to the Elevador da Lavra. The other direction, you will reach the Praça do Comércio, which is located in the center of the Portuguese old empire near the river Tejo (Tagus). To go to Sintra or to Óbidos you must catch the train at Entre-Campos train station, which is just a short subway trip from Chiado.

Chiado is considered the most beautiful area of historical Lisbon. It was a place of residence of the Portuguese royalty and of the political and cultural elites. Nearby is the theater S. Luis and the opera D. Carlos.

Close to shops, restaurants, cafes, banks, cash machine, public transportation (subway and electric trams) and 24 hour taxi stands, etc.

A little further up on the left is Camões Square (Praça de Camões), next to Bairro Alto, picturesque but raffish; part of Lisbon's nightlife seems to be concentrated in this quarter, which was frequented to hear the sentimental 'fados' sung in certain restaurants and cafés. Chiado and Bairro Alto are 'the' meeting point for locals and tourists, with elegant hotels, old cafés, and the best international fashion shops nearby.

Lisbon Sightseeing - It operates both open-top bus tours and tourist trams. Both run from the Praça do Comércio. Bus trips are the 'Circuito Tejo', which goes out to Belém as well as other parts of the city, or the (Expresso Oriente' which visits the Parque das Nações. The tram does the 'Circuito das Colinas' (Hill Circuit) which embraces the 28 route through Alfama.

It also visits Estrela to the west of the city. Whilst costly, the advantage of the tourist tram is the audio guided tour and the fact that you will get a seat and not have to stand. Also, the historic trams are decked out in 'historic' upholstery and fittings. Trams also operate a Circuito dos Descobrimentos to Belém.

Accommodation comprises one bedroom with a queen size bed, a second room with 2 single beds, living room with dining and sitting areas, two full bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen. The apartment has air-conditioning and central heating in all the rooms. This privileged location offers easy access by foot to the subway (Chiado/Baixa station – 50 m).

We will welcome you with a nice bottle of wine, coffee and tea ready for you and some biscuits.

                        We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It is ideally located - close to the trams, buses, train station, lots of sightseeing, shopping!! The apartment was well furnished, clean and we had a very warm welcome by Paulo's team. Paulo was also very responsive to all our questions prior to our visit. You will need a map and can walk to a lot of places in Alfama and Chiado. Ask the person welcoming you at the apartment for a good map and general directions to the grocery store, tram stations, train stations, ride back to the airport etc.. We had done some research on the internet prior to our trip to note down all the sightseeing places we wanted to see. From the airport, we recommend that you walk up the stairs after you claim your baggage and go to the departures lounge and grab a taxi, it is much cheaper this way. You can buy a zapper card from the Chiado Baixa metro station, you will need one card per person and can load 5 euros to begin with. This card can be used on all trams and buses. We used tram 28 to get to Alfama, tram 15 to get to Belem. To go to Sintra, you need to get to the Roxio train station nearby and buy tickets. We really enjoyed the street acts/music in and around the apartment area, the place is very lively and friday/sat nights can be very noisy. But the apartment has awesome sound proof doors for when you want to cut out the street noise and get some rest. We highly recommend the icecream place - Amareno. There is plenty to see in Lisboa, so enjoy your stay!! Thanks to Paulo and team for a fantastic experience in Lisboa, we hope to be back sometime soon!

                        We absolutley loved the apartment. The views are better than the photos. With the French doors and balconies, the space is bright and breezy. Visiting friends staying in expensive hotel rooms were jealous of the price we paid for this expansive and high-quality apartment. The street is alive with shoppers and students and musical performers/hustlers day and night which is entertaining during the day and evening, but after midnight, it's just noisy. We heard from friends that Lisbon by night is noisy wherever you are. Best of all are the owners/staff. Paulo and Silvia are a joy to work with, super competent. We booked two years in advance to get this prime location and we are glad we did.

                        We had a wonderful experience at the apartment. Everything one could need was available. The view was magnificent and the area a vibrant mix of music, restaurants and shopping. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Paulo was quick in responding to emails and Silvia was a delightful in showing us everything we needed to know about the apartment and area. If you want to be in the heart of the city and close to everything, this is the place for you.

                        Found the apartment exactly as advertised. Central location, clean and comfortable. Everything close by ie; restaurants, groceries etc. Easy access to public transportation. Paulo very helpful. .Will use again on future visits and recommend to friends and family.Recommend a trip to Sintra be included in travel plans as train station is very handy and this makes a beautiful one day excursion from Lisbon. Lisbon is a city of hills but this 78 year old visited all the attractions and believe that with a bit of effort any one can do it. A cold beer in the plaza was always a home coming treat.

                        Excellent apartment in what must be the best location and views to match in Lisbon! From the moment I enquired about renting the apartment, Paulo (the owner) responded to emails very quickly and was keen to answer any queries I had. His website is very professional and accurately portrays the apartment's layout and location. The "meet and greet" arrangements worked perfectly and we were given a comprehensive tour of the property. Any questions were handled very well during the hand over and we were left with a tourist map and various suggestions of eateries, trips etc. The owner had thoughtfully provided some tea,coffee and biscuits and there was even a bottle of wine chilling nicely in the fridge! The apartment was very clean and fully equipped albeit we ate out most of the time with plenty of restaurants nearby. There is also a well stocked supermarket 10 mins walk away if you wish to self cater. The lounge/dining area was light and airy with 4 patio doors/windows which opened up to provide superb views of the Castle, Se Cathedral and the river and it was nice to have a G&T soaking up the sounds of the accordion player, Fado singer and bustle of the street below. At night the views were sublime with the main sights lit up. Once the windows and shutters were closed it was quiet for sleeping.There is air con in all the rooms if you need it. It's central location in a chic and up and coming area of Lisbon was perfect for sightseeing by foot and it is close to tram stops, bus routes and the metro. If you are flying into Lisbon don't bother with a taxi transfer as the metro now runs to the airport and it is an easy and cheap way to travel to the apartment. We had a superb time in Lisbon, which is very underrated, enhanced by the perfect accommodation! One tip - buy a 7 collinas/via viagem "zapper" card for .50 Euros and load it with Euros for travel on all forms of public transport in Lisbon. It could even be used on the 40 mins train journey to Sintra ( a must see) Great value!!! If you are thinking of going to Lisbon - do it, and book this apartment. You won't regret it!

                        Best experience with VRBO to date. Owner and assistant were extremely responsive and attentive. Outstading property - modern conveniences, clean, comfortable, gorgeous wrap around view of caslte, river and quaint neighborhood streets. Perfect location, next door to shops, cafes and historic sites. Our party of 4 unanimously actually declared it the favourite experience of the whole trip.

                        The apartment is huge, well furnished, and in a convenient location. The big downside is the street noise at night. People are outside until after 2:00 a.m. and then the garbage trucks rumbled by. Sleeping with the window open was impossible. Fortunately, the double paned windows shut out most of the notice. However, without open windows we had to use air conditioning.

                        The listing description was totally accurate. In fact, the apartment was even better than we expected, and we expected it to be good. It was clean, well maintained, spacious, comfortable, perfectly located, and the views were spectacular. The owner was available and helpful at every stage from arranging for transport from the airport to checking that everything was acceptable. We were a family of four adults, and the two bedrooms and two baths were comfortable and clean. The rental fee is very reasonable, much better than renting two hotel rooms. I enthusiastically recommend this property to anybody planning to visit Lisbon. If we return to this wonderful city, we will stay there again.

Would go back in a heart beat.
