About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

(Alojamento Local 15458/AL)

This city centre modern apartment is set in a recently rebuilt building in old historic Lisbon. Daylight-filled and bright, fifth floor apartment is located in Luis de Camões Square, in a building with 2 elevators. This is one of the most important squares dedicated to the Portuguese Prince of the poetry, with the statue in the centre which was erected in 1867 and has a privilege situation in the heart of the cultural and historical part of the city (Chiado).

Located in front of the 5 stars luxury Bairro Alto Hotel.

Very close to several museums, operas, theaters, and churches. A 5 minute walk takes you to the Rossio, in the Baixa, and to the Elevador da Lavra. On the other direction you will reach the Praça do Comércio, where has located the centre of the Portuguese old empire near the river Tejo (Tagus).

Lisbon Sightseeing - It operates both open-top bus tours and trams (right in front of the buildings door). 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 28 does the 'Circuito das Colinas' (Hill Circuit) which embraces the 28 route through Graça, Alfama, Chiado, Bairro Alto, Estrela and Campo de Ourique.

Trams also operate a Circuito dos Descobrimentos to Belém.

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

This privileged location offers easy access by foot to the subway (Baixa/Chiado station 50 meters).

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 are located the theatre S. Luis and D. Maria II as well as the opera D. Carlos.

Camões Square (Praça de Camões) is 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 'fado' song 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.

Please note that the arrivals after 20h00 have a late arrival fee of 35 euros and after 24h00 the extra fee is 50 euros.

In case you wish to avoid this fee we can provide the codes for the self check-in and meet you in the next day.

Comfortable stay at the center of Lisbon

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this comfortable appartment right in the center of Lisbon. Conviently located near metro and tram connections. The appartment is fully equipped and a has a nice atmosphere to relax. During the night and especially the early morning, the streets were very noisy, when the party-goers left the historic streets. So we could not open the windows at night.

Paul was very friendly, and greeted us when we arrived. The appartment was clean and tidy. The kitchen had all the required appliances. In the morning you can go out for breakfast on the square. The appartment is also close to the shopping area.

We arrived from the airport by taxi to the appartment (about 25 euros), and travelled back by metro.

In the middle of things!

  • 4 of 5

Nice,clean apartment, right in the middle of town.The apartment sits across from the Brazilian Embassy.It was very easy to get around from here. Some of the furniture was a little jaded.Top floor with 2 elevators.

The only negative was the crowd noise at night...even with the blinds closed and earplugs, the partiers went on until 3 and 4 am on weekends.

Paulo was very gracious and helpful.Silvy was there ready to greet us upon arrival...a great time. We enjoyed Lisboa very much!

A realy good ,well furnished apartment. Situated in the heart of "tourist Lisbon" (the downside of which is that there is quite a lot of noise on weekend nights).

Great location for Christmas in Lisbon. The service on booking and arrival was excellent. The apartment is in a great location in terms of access to other parts of the city, shopping and restaurants. .A bonus when it gets dark early. Being on the number 28 tram route is a joy.

It is very comfortable with good heating (a plus in winter). Fresh bread from the bakery everyday. The trick to cutting out the noise from the bars at night is to lower the shutters.

Incredible Location!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment lived up to our expectations, and more! It is gorgeous, bright, airy, clean, and secure, with a lot of space in the bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, and living room (there's also an elevator). The view out of the living room is amazing--it looks directly over Camoes square, which is immediately in the heart of Lisbon (close enough to walk easily to charming cafes, great restaurants and trattorias, shopping, nightlife, sightseeing, and transportation). The staff who welcomed us to the apartment were very friendly and quite knowledgeable. If you want absolutely **everything** at your doorstep, this is the most incredible location you can find! We can't wait to come back!

Great argument in great spot!

  • 5 of 5

I booked this apartment for my parents who are in their 70s. They had a great stay and were very complimentary of the apartment and its central location in the old city. The hosts were great, with good communication skills during the booking and arrival process and Silvia did a great job showing them around the apartment and explaining WiFi (which by the way, was terrific).

The apartment was clean and included everything one needs while on holidays. My mother is fussy, so I know that when she's happy with an apartment that it must be good. The apartment would suit a lot of different travellers, but this one is certainly a good option for older travellers visiting a very hilly city.
