Bairro Alto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

(Alojamento Local 15456/AL)

This city centre modern apartment is set in a recently rebuilt building in old historic Lisbon. This bright, daylight-filled, third floor apartment is located in Luis de Camões Square. 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 (Bairro Alto and Chiado).

Very close to several museums, operas, theaters, and churches. Located in front of the luxurious, five-star Bairro Alto Hotel. 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). 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.

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

Accommodation comprises one bedroom with a double bed, living room with dining and sitting areas, full bathroom, 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 (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 the opera D. Carlos.

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.

Please note that a traditional Portuguese Breakfast is available for an extra charge of EUR 18 for 2 persons, available upon request.

Also check our other apartment on the same building:

- with 2 bedrooms on the 5th floor (VRBO #309682).

- with 3 bedrooms nearby (VRBO #458079).

One of the best vacations ever.

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of April in this apartment which is strategically located in Lisbon close to the Metro and excellent restaurants. Management was most helpful and responsive. The apartment is well equipped, clean and in good condition. Good value for your money.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Near restaurants, transportation, and the water. Portugal is very walkable, even from this location.

The bed was comfortable for 2. The amenities were sufficient.

Recommended for a Lisbon vacation.

We recommend this apartment.

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is spacious, clean, safe and secure. It has lots of hot water and has an in-house safe that we highly recommend you use. The staff is extremely helpful, arranging airport transit as requested and trouble shooting if a problem arises. It is a great location with groceries, market and restaurants/wine bars within walking distance.

The square outside the windows is often noisy after midnight, and the air conditioner is also noisy if you choose to close the windows.

Avoid crowded trams; travel on them during less popular times. There are serious pickpockets on them, as well in other crowded situations.

All in all, it is an accommodation that we recommend to other travellers.

Large suite with great location

  • 5 of 5

This suite is a great value for the money. Centrally located with lots of space, overlooking a square where the trollies stop. Double sinks in the bathroom is an added bonus. Paulo was very responsive and great to deal with. We were met on time and provided a thorough orientation to the property. The only small detail I would suggest is that they provide instructions for the combo washer/dryer. We are not familiar with these in Canada, and although we could get the washer to work, we couldn't figure out the dryer settings. We had a great stay in Lisbon. Thanks Paulo.
