About Jorge Alves Lino
Hello, I am Jorge, a Dutch-Portuguese designer from the glorious year of '79, based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. I am curious by profession and I am passionate about creating new and beautiful things. That led me to globetrotting for a few years, as a student and later as a young designer. I love travelling and meeting new people and other cultures, and applying all what I learn into the things I make and design. We are most of the time in Eindhoven, the Netherlands. Sometimes, in Lisbon, where I was born, and the place I always come back to recharge batteries.

Why Jorge Alves Lino chose Lisbon Old Town
The strong points of this apartment: - location: in the heart of the vibrant Bairro Alto district - very spacious: the apartment has a total of 120 m2, with 2 large suites - interior design: the aesthetics of the apartment are very sharp - quiet: the apartment is completely soundproof to make sure the vibrancy of the neighbourhood does not interfere with good quality sleep.

The apartment was great, very clean, very modern. The owner's brother, Joao, who was super nice met us at the apartment to check us in. Not only was Joao very efficient with checking us in he gave us some great recommendations for places to eat and drink...he even brought pasteis de nata from the bakery around the corner which were incredible. Despite the apartment being right in the Bario Alto it was very quite with the windows closed. Because of the retractable car barriers in the Bario Alto our cab driver had a hard time getting us to the front door. It's much easier to get dropped off at the Praca Luis de Camoes (the 24 and 28 trams also stop there), and walk the one block up and one block over to get to the apartment. We would certainly stay there again.
Lovely loft apartment in a very convenient location with all local amenities and attractions near by
We had a lovely stay in the loft apartment, which is decorated to a very high standard. Everything was spotless clean. Kitchen had everything needed for cooking, not that we had the need to cook with all the restaurants on our door step. We were welcomed by Jorge’s brother with local pastries and Nespeesso coffee. We were able to leave our bags at the apartment after our check out. We will definitely recommend it to our friends and we hope to be back soon.
Beautiful apartment in the middle of Lisboa
This place was better than expected. Beautiful decor and very comfortable space. I love the fact that the two rooms are far way from each other. The bathroom and bedroom were big compare to rooms in Europe. I stayed here in January, 2019 and the location was perfect. Very convenience to walked everywhere. Joao welcome us to the condo and he was extremely nice. He made some recommendations for some good restaurants and he was very attentive to any of our request. I highly recommend this place if you are staying in Lisboa, Portugal.
Thank you so much Claudia for your kind words. All the best and hope to see you again!
Great location, wonderful hosts!
Jorge and Joao were the most wonderful hosts for our short stay at Casa da Barroca. The apartment is in the most convenient area, with bars, restaurants, and sights a walkable distance in every direction. Joao gave us incredible recommendations for all of the above. We loved the apartment and Lisbon and were not ready to leave!
Thank you so much Sonya for the kind words. It was a pleasure to have you, and we hope to see you in the future! All the best!
Terrific Location & Accommodations
We arrived in Lisbon for our last 2 nights in Portugal before flying home to California and absolutely loved the convenient location of this apartment off one of the main squares and in the heart of a lively historic neighborhood with wonderful bars and restaurants. The owner's brother (who speaks impeccable English!) met us, helped us carry our luggage up the 5 flights! of stairs and stayed to answer all our questions and make suggestions on where to eat and what to visit. He even went way beyond the call of duty to seek out packaging tape for my girlfriend so she could mail some packages home. The apartment itself was lovely! Beautiful, remodeled and luxurious bathrooms, quiet location of bedrooms and light and open living areas and kitchen. I would definitely recommend this apartment and would book it again when I visit Lisbon.
Dear Raye, thank you so much for your kind Words, it was a pleasure to host you and to know we helper you have a pleasant stay. All the best, we hope to see you again in the future!
Private, Clean, great location and beautifully decorated
Casa de Barroca was awesome! The place was spacious, clean, well appointed and beautifully decorated! It was in a great location and we felt like we were living like locals. We were in the center of town and able to walk all of Lisbon easily! The apartment was set up great with bedroom suites on either side that allowed for privacy. It had everything we needed for our stay. Jorge was great to work with! Very responsive to our questions before arriving as well as while we were there. The only challenge was that cars aren’t able to reach the apartment, so we had to be let out by our Uber driver a few blocks away; however, for that inconvenience everything else about the apartment and location much outweighed that. I would recommended Casa de Barroca and would definitely stay there again next time we visit Lisbon!
Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure to have you. We are very happy to hear that we somehow helper you enjoy you visit to Lisbon the most. All the best, hope to see you in the future.
Best regards, Jorge
Jorge's home is located in Bairro Alto. Known as the bohemian district of Lisbon, Bairro Alto is one of the city's oldest and most peculiar neighbourhoods, with a unique identity and character.
Do you enjoy seeing the transformation from day to night in a specific place? In Bairro Alto, you'll have the opportunity to see this transformation first hand. During the day it's a peaceful and quiet neighbourhood. After sunset, the nightlife welcomes the movement, transforming the streets into a true festival, full of locals and tourists from different cultures and styles milling around, having a great time.
In addition to the festive atmosphere, along Bairro Alto's narrow, cobbled streets, you'll find both sophisticated design shops, local commerce, many typical restaurants, bars, cafes, fado houses and nightclubs where you can have fun all night long. Bairro Alto is a place where visitors and crowds of all ages blend together seamlessly, giving the district a unique avant-garde vibe mixed with old-fashioned influences.
