Prime location - Bairro Alto 1B
|Address||Travessa dos Inglesinhos, 1200 Lisbon, Portugal|
|Response time||A few hours|
This is a modern and cozy apartment, full of character and light, set on the first floor (Drto) of an ancient typical Lisbon building in the trendy and vibrant Bairro Alto, known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. This apartment is part of a group of 7 apartments that we have in this building.
The apartment has one bedroom with a double bed, and a double sofa bed in the living room, a nice bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, ready to cook home made meals. Towels and linens at your disposal are included in the price and satelite Tv and wireless internet as well.
To set forth on a discovery of Lisbon, there is no better place to begin: the tram a few steps away, international brand shops at Chiado and the more daring fashions in Bairro Alto, where you also have the trendiest restaurants of Lisbon. Bica neighbourhood, close by, is becoming a night haven for artists and intellectuals. But this does not destroy the calm and charm of Rua das Chagas. For theatre and opera lovers there are three theatre houses at a five minute distance, S. Carlos, S. Luiz and Trindade Theatres.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.
Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to see.
Luís de Camões square, which any Lisboner will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has.
But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.
This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).
It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.
Walk the streets with care, the movement on the sidewalks is always heavy and the trams are constantly passing.

Reviews for this host's other properties
La ubicación del piso es bastante buena y la atención recibida fue en todo momento muy amable, servicial y atenta.
Sin embargo, nos encontramos con algunas zonas del apartamento que no estaban muy limpias, y tuvimos que volver a pasar nosotras el cepillo de barrer (por cierto, el cepillo parecía de juguete para niños de 5 años).
La ducha era toda una aventura... Puesto que salía agua caliente y fría de forma intermitente, y además se salía por fuera. Tuvimos que solucionarlo con toallas en el suelo a modo de dique, para no salir nadando del baño.
Y la cama del dormitorio principal, estaba rota la pata de la cama, así que tuvimos que ser nuevamente creativas y colocar una banqueta inclinada debajo para que terminara de caer al suelo mientras de dormía.
Considero que se podría haber cuidado más el aspecto del apartamento, puesto que poco tiene que ver con la foto que aparece en el anuncio.
Very nice apartment with a great, central location.
Only minus: balcony without view or in the basement.
Otherwise, tip top .... at any time.
Sehr schöne Wohnung mit toller, zentraler Lage.
Einziges Minus: Balkon ohne Blick bzw. im Keller.
Ansonsten tip top .... jederzeit wieder.
Thanks Philipp for answering our 1000 questions about Lisbon, showing us the Appartment in detail. Very nice stay at a quiet but central place....
PS: just paid 12 euro for the TAXI to the airport ......very good recommendation and very good service from you ...we come again !
We loved to stay here!
Really beautiful, clean with everything you might need in a quiet little street but still in the centre. Perfect for us- we would love to come back :)
Great appartement! Looked in real life the same as on the pictures!
We enjoyed our stay very much. Also very helpful staff!
Home impeccable staff Wimdu. 10/10! Filipe is very friendly and gives advice on the sights to visit and tricks for walking in Lisbon.
On housing, 5/10! Pictures taken correspond to a new apartment, unfortunately this is not / no longer the case (small room / small bathroom / broken foot single beds, electric meter jumps if startup electric heater & hob), it may need to revise the counter amperage to avoid this kind of inconvenience.
For summer it is not annoying but for the winter it becomes more problematic.
At the sight, this corresponds entirely to the announcement!
In short Overall rating 3/5
Accueil personnel Wimdu impeccable. 10/10! Filipe est très sympathique et nous donne des conseils sur les monuments à visiter et les petites astuces pour se balader dans Lisbonne.
Concernant le logement, 5/10 ! Les photos prises correspondent à un appartement récent, malheureusement ce n'est pas/plus le cas ( petite chambre / salle de bain minuscule / pieds des lits simple cassés, compteur électrique qui saute si mise en route radiateur électrique & plaque cuisson ), il faudra peut-être revoir l'ampérage du compteur pour éviter ce genre de désagréments.
Pour l'été ce n'est pas gênant mais pour l'hiver cela devient plus problématique.
Au niveau de la vue, cela correspond tout à fait à l'annonce !
Bref Note globale 3/5
Host was very friendly and showed us how to go in Lissabon. Towels and equipment was present, even the heater was on when we came. Perfect.
The appartement was situated walkingdistance from center.
It was a pleasure to stay at Margaridas apartment. The apartment is fully equipped with everything I needed for my stay. The area the apartment is located at is one of my favorites. It's close to the jardim do principe real, to bairo alto as well as to the avenida liberdade. You can reach everything walking.
It was really easy and uncomplicated to arrange the check in and I was warmly welcomed by Filipe. He explained me the apartment and gave me a lot of recommendations to fully enjoy my stay. I couldn't have wished a better first meeting with a local. Thank you Filipe and Margarida!
The apartment we liked it quite well on the whole. The location is very good, all means of transport can be reached by short footpaths. Nevertheless, the apartment offers due to its location and protection against traffic noise. The apartment we found clean and tidy. The kitchen is concisely but adequately equipped. Who is used to having his own mattress and duvet for a double bed, which is missing here. Communication with the service was seamless, small problems were dealt with immediately. It is certainly sensible, this apartment to rent in the summer as well in Portugal generally a standard heater like in the colder part of Europe is not to be found.
The fact remains that we can recommend this apartment to other conditions (Daylight Saving Time).
Die Wohnung hat uns im Großen und Ganzen ganz gut gefallen. Die Lage ist sehr gut, alle Verkehrsmittel sind mit kurzen Fußwegen zu erreichen. Trotzdem bietet die Wohnung durch ihre Lage auch Schutz vor Verkehrslärm. Die Wohnung haben wir sauber und ordentlich vorgefunden. Die Küche ist zwar knapp, aber ausreichend ausgestattet. Wer gewohnt ist, im Doppelbett seine eigene Matratze und Bettdecke zu haben, wird das hier vermissen. Die Kommunikation mit der Bewirtung war problemlos, kleine Probleme wurden sofort erledigt. Es ist sicher sinnvoller, diese Wohnung im Sommer anzumieten, da in Portugal wohl allgemein ein Heizungsstandard wie im kälteren Teil Europas nicht anzutreffen ist.
Es bleibt dabei, dass wir diese Wohnung zu anderen Bedingungen (Sommerzeit) empfehlen können.
