About the Property

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).

Great Stay - modern apartment in Lisbon! 12/08/2011

VRBO Bear stayed here:


This apartment was a wonderful place to stay. With its central location I was right in the heart of Lisbon. Everything you could need is all within walking distance, and if you don’t feel like walking, there are plenty of forms of transportation right at your doorstep. The apartment has all the amenities you could need on a trip, way better than staying at a hotel. Paulo was great. He waited for me patiently to arrive. and gave me details about the apartment, its features and even left a contact number if any question or issues arose. With the city so beautiful and so much to see, it was nice to come back to such a comfortable place to relax and sleep at the end of the day. It was hard to leave! I wish I could stayed longer.

Thanks for everything Paulo. I hope to come back to Lisbon again soon and enjoy your beautiful apartment again!
