2 bedroom apartment in traditional Portuguese building, in the heart of Graça
- english, french, german, portuguese, Portuguese
Why Allyson Roberts chose Lisbon Old Town
To be in Graça is where you will find local life. It's not a touristy area, but somewhere where you will find Fado authentically, friendly folk and a peaceful start to your adventure in Lisbon. This apartment on the fourth floor is full of charm, up high and away in the blue skies of Lisbon. It is light and airy and away from the sounds of the city. The apartment retains its original ceilings and charm, but has been comfortably refitted.
What makes this Apartment unique
You are in a special area of Lisbon (Graça), with its traditional shops and eateries, local fado, and in a traditional building with the light and blue of the skies.

Perfect spot to stay in Lisbon
Great spot to stay...just right for a couple, 3 would work, 4 would be a squeeze. Be aware that there are 4 flights of stairs...nothing to fear just be aware. The #28 tram is right outside your doorstep and will get you anywhere you need to go or to your connection with subway, trains and buses for those out of town adventures. Many good eating spots nearby. Don't be fooled by the distances when you view a map of Graca neighborhood. some blocks are only 50-100ft. long. Got to where after a week we could walk to or even back uphill from Moniz and Chiada areas. Allyson is an absolute gem to work with and have answers to whatever you may need. This worked perfectly for us and we are 75 & 74 years old. Spent 10 days. Good luck and enjoy Lisboa w/Allyson's help. You can't go wrong! Dennis & Dixie, Pecos, New Mexico, USA.
Cool Charm in Lisbon.
Loved staying in this charming fourth-floor walk up in Lisbon right in the "center of everything!" Allyson was a wonderful host. Centrally located apartment in Lisbon was perfect for us while we stayed in Lisbon for the first time. I looked forward to getting home in the afternoon from our ventures out and opening the windows overlooking the street - the breeze was absolutely scrumptious! The apartment is small but spacious. We loved having a washer since we were traveling for a few weeks. The apartment has a nice kitchen and internet. Many things very close by - a Pingo Doce (a chain grocery store), family owned vegetable and fruit shops and many local eateries. It was easy to get to all forms of transport from this location - subway, bus and tram. If we are ever in Lisbon again, this would be a perfect choice!
This is a quaint and quirky apartment in a beautiful, traditional tiled Portuguese building. As stated in the description it is quite small but was perfectly adequate for 3 of us. The location is ideal, with fabulous local restaurants, bakeries (for those yummy pasteis de natas), shops and transport. It is a great place to be based as you are away from the typical "touristy" areas but a 15 minute walk from the city centre. Allyson was a very helpful and accommodating owner. Lisbon is a fantastic city with a great (and very reasonably priced ) public transport system. I would recommend the Zapping card which can be used on trains, buses and the metro.
Appartement charmant et très agréable
Appartement très bien situé , dans un quartier très typique. Commerces à proximité, transports en commun. Idéal pour découvrir la ville. Allyson est d'excellents conseils. Allez y les yeux fermés.
Charming flat in Alfama
Warm welcome. The flat was nice and quiet. We felt safe and had a lovely stay in Lisbon. Alfama is a typical part of the city and it was fine beeing there. We did a lot of walking and never felt like taking the metro or tram. Please notify your gests that the Museo Nacional do Azulejo is closed on May the first at 2 PM (our gide book did not say so)!
From Lisbon airport, take a 12 minute taxi ride to the apartment. This is the BEST way to arrive. It should cost 15 euros.
Or take the metro from the airport to Martin Moniz station, and tram 28 from Marim Moniz (5 stops) to Rua de Graça.
The apartment has access to all means of transport. It is on the famous 'tram 28' route which takes you around the cultural 'must sees', 10 minutes walk down to the 'Baixa' and 10 minutes walk to the nearest metro, Martim Moniz.
The apartment is in the historical area of Graça in a friendly local neighbourhood, close to the 'Miradouro da Graça' which overlooks the centre of Lisbon, the river Tejo, and across to the 'Castelo Saõ Jorge'. Take your morning coffee or evening relaxation from the 'Miradouro da Graça', where you will find cool breezes, fountains and warmth. It is not far from the well-known flea market, Feira de Ladra in the Alfama district, held on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
The local shops are indeed local! Fresh fruit and veg, butchers and bakers, and of course cafés and restaurants, including a couple of very good Indian restaurants. And yes, there is a supermarket! There is also a very local, typical Fado bar which is off the tourist track and so authentic.
You really have the chance to feel the real character of local Lisbon and still be close to the heart of the city. Although centrally located, up in the apartment you are away from the noise of the street.
