Cantinho da Amália (Amália's Corner) is how we call our apartment, because its situated a few meters from the birthplace of the world famous fado singer Amália Rodrigues. Located on the 4th floor and attic of the building it has a beautiful natural light throughout the day and a magnificent view of the Castle of São Jorge. The entire building was completely renovated in 2009 and the apartment offers the modern comfort of central heating and air conditioning, but keeping the romantic atmosphere of the sloping ceilings. The comfort of the bathroom, the functionality of the kitchen and equipment (new), combined with its contemporary and tasteful decor makes this flat extremely comfortable. The apartment can accommodate a family of four, or even two couples, as the sofa bed has the size and comfort of a double bed.

Comfortable Apartment in Great Location
Antonio's apartment was quite comfortable - larger than it looks even from the pictures. The views of the Castelo are also grander than any photo can capture. The apartment is in a great location. We walked a lot, but it was also close to public transportation, etc. Antonio was a gracious host. He met us at the airport and gave us many recommendations as he drove us to the apartment, where he had left a cold bottle of water and a couple of pastel de natas for us.
It was close to a funicular that we used a couple of times, but, walking to the apartment building and then up to the apartment on the top floor was a bit of a climb. As Antonio said, the view is the reward for the climb, but, be aware that the climb is steep and the building has no elevator.
If you stay at this aprtment, make sure that you check out Bonjardim for chicken and Fabrica for coffee.
Chad, thank you for your kind words. Come back anytime you want.
A perfect apartment, beautiful views, walking distance to everything, great host,!
We had everything we needed and more! From the friendly airport pickup and free guidance to the facilities provided we were more than happy with our stay
convenient cozy apartment
Apartment is clean, well equipped, with big windows for a good night breeze and great views of castle and river. Closet with a few hangars and drawers. Good shower. A/C worked quickly and not too noisy, washing machine is a plus. Antonio was very communicative. Pictures in advert are accurate.
Neighborhood is, colorful. Quiet in evening if neighbor's dog is in a good mood, which was 6 of 7 nights.
As a mid-50s traveller, I was not prepared for the uphill hike to the apartment and the 4 floors of steep stairs to get to the apartment. However, we found several nice restaurants close by which eliminated a lot of the hill climbing in the evening. Convenient to Rossio, Restauradores and Martim Moniz plazas, which each have a variety of transit options. Airport bus to/from Rossio is convenient and cheap. We took taxi from airport - about 25 euro.

We spent 4 days in this app and we enjoyed our stay very much. The place is situated in the heart of Lisbon. It is a very clean and cosy apartment with an outstanding view.
Antonio was very much helpful and friendly. We also brought home some delicious portuguese wines according to his advice!
We would definitely advise you to stay at this place!
super logement, très bien situé
l'appartement d'Antonio est très bien situé, quartier Rossio, centre ville, avec plein de commerces et de petits restaurants tout proches. Il y a une très belle vue sur Lisbonne depuis la pièce-séjour. Il y a tout le confort dans l'appartement et c'est aussi très calme, très reposant. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour d'autant plus qu'Antonio nous avait super bien accueillis en prenant du temps pour nous renseigner longuement sur les sites et curiosités qu'il était indispensable de visiter dans Lisbonne et même en dehors. Nous avons pu ainsi aller passer en train une journée à SINTRA ; la gare est à 5 mn à pied du logement d'Antonio. Vraiment une semaine très agréable à Lisbonne dans un appartement que nous recommandons à chacun.
Vous êtes toujours bien venu.
Nuestra estancia en Lisboa fue de lo más agradable, en su mayor parte por el acogimiento recibido por parte de Antonio, se preocupó de nuestra llegada, nos indicó restaurantes de referencia y lugares imprescindibles para ver, además tuvo un detalle precioso con nosotros al llegar, desde aquí darle las gracias.
En cuanto al apartamento, tiene una ubicación inmejorable, unas vistas preciosas con las que desayunar o ver atardecer. La decoración es idéntica a la de las fotografías, bien cuidado y limpio. Antonio a nuestra llegada se preocupó por explicarnos dónde estaba todo y cómo funcionaba, de nuevo, gracias!!
Gracias a ustedes también. Vuelvan cuando quieran.
This apartment is placed at the Sant’Ana hill, one of the oldest historic hills of Lisbon, and is located just aside the house where Amália Rodrigues was born, the well-known Portuguese faddist.. With a magnificent view to São Jorge Castle, the Graça Church and Tagus river, you will enjoy your relaxing stay being only a few minutes away from “Baixa” (downtown) and the busy Rossio square and the surrounding streets with many restaurants and shops. Liberdade Avenue with its luxury shops is also easily reachable, going down the west side of the hill. This quiet neighbourhood has still many 18th et 19th century palaces, like the Palace of Bemposta, residence of the queen D.Catarina of Bragança, widow of the king Charles II of England, in the early 18th century.
