At just few steps you can find the pretty Praça das Flores with plenty of Cafes and Restaurants or you can walk up to the café in the middle of Principe Real Gardens. From here you can walk 5 minutes to the famous Bairro Alto neighborhood and and 10 minutes to the Chiado and Baixa areas. In the proximities you'll also find the Botanical Garden of Lisbon, as well as antiques, clothing and design shops. You'll find a tram stop beside this viewpoint that will bring you in 5 minutes to the areas of Restauradores and Rossio, where you can find connections to Sintra.

Perfect appartment and the best property manager we ever had!
Very nice and clean appartment, fully equipped, nice surrounding (a nice park 5 minutes away-an best breakfast in Café „Copenhagen“ and „Foxtrott“ is s nice bar) and a very warm welcome!
And many many thanks to Carla who managed all perfectly and who was always there for help!-we never had such a friendly and helpful manager of the appartment before!
Apartment with character
Carla made us very welcome on our arrival at this lovely character filled apartment. It was situated in a quiet area with lovely views over the rooftops. Transport was a short walk away and also walking distance from many interesting areas and parks. We've had 6 nights here and would love to stay longer.
Really great apartment, location, decor, comfort, and hosts. Everything you’d want in an Airbnb you’ll get. Stay here!
Nice flat, spacious, terrific location, good neighborhood, and a well appointed kitchen. The two story walk up is very manageable, plentiful access to public transport, taxis, and Uber service. Number of good restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk. Parks and green space in the area. Very attentive, responsive, and informative management.
Yes there were some small imperfections, but the total experience was very satisfactory. We liked it a lot.
Great location. Nice apartment. Wonderful service
Really loved this place and Lisbon in general. Carla was wonderful! Would highly recommend.
This place was a wonderful find! Carla was enormously helpful and took care of all of our needs.
From our first step into the apartment we knew we were someplace special. The place is beautiful in every way and very livable and comfortable! Carla met us and provided very thorough and useful information about the apartment and Lisbon in general. The kitchen was well appointed and our hostess had provided us with wine, lovely fresh fruits, coffee, crackers, cheese and small jams. We actually had breakfast twice with all that was provided.
The location was totally old world Lisbon. We were on a narrow, one-way street lined with apartment buildings covered in traditional Portuguese tiles. A short stroll down the hill led us to great eating places within 5 minutes in several directions. In fact, the best meal we had in Lisbon was just down the hill and around the corner from our place.
The apartment had wonderful natural ventilation as the living room and bedrooms all had great windows - the living room actually had a double door that led to a small terrace that overlooked the street below. We left this open when we were home and rarely had to turn on air conditioning which was a bonus.
We can’t think of a better place to experience the charming city of Lisbon and would definitely go back again.
