Location and description of the neighborhood
The apartment is located in Sao Bento, which is a specific area of the Santos neighborhood and is just a 10 minutes walk to the river. This neighborhood is surrounded by other well-known typical neighborhoods such as Madragoa, Lapa, Estrela, Principe Real and Bairro Alto. Just around the corner, you will find fado houses, trendy bars, miradouros with breath taking views, historic monuments and churches, imperial plazas, and many restaurants.
The apartment is situated 2 steps away from Principe Real neighborhood. Presently it is one of Lisbon’s most expensive areas, not only for its centrality in relation to various points of town, but also for the great variety of cultural, commercial, and night experiences it offers. It’s a fancy part of town, surrounded by the most important and typical Lisbon neighborhoods: Castelo, Alfama, Baixa e Chiado. This whole area is within a confortable walking distance from the apartment. Fado houses, amazing sights, historical monuments, imperial plazas… are located close to the apartment.
This old neighborhood is well known for its many antique stores and is edged by Av 24 de Julho, where old unused warehouses have given way to new trendy stores. Here, you will find the real Lisbon spirit with old traditions mixing with modern young live.
We recommend that you take the train in front of the river and go visit the marvelous beaches along the coast to Cascais where you will be able to dive and swim in the Portuguese Atlantic waters. This same train ride will also allow you to visit the Belem area and visit the Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, the Torre de Belem, and the Padrao dos Descobrimentos. These monuments will amaze you for their architecture and sumptuosity. Before you leave this area, do not forget to try a pastel de Belem, which is a traditional and tasty Portuguese pastry.
The Rato subway station is just 10 minutes away and it will allow you to get to any point of the city. You can also opt for taking the light rail route 28 that goes through many of the most important and old Lisbon neighborhoods. As we mention earlier, the train is also available, and it will take you to Belem or further west along the coast to Cascais. Finally, in this area it is also very easy to find a taxi.

Reviews of this property
Large, clean apartment! In a very nice neighborhood. Tram 28 stops in the street : )
It was quiet cold inside (february) but Marina solved the problem super quick.
The apartment is beautiful, spotlessly clean, the equipment is beyond all expectations (guides, dryer, great kitchen equipment etc ...) the only concern is the supply of electricity including heating in winter .. . fortunately we kindly lent us a gas heater because it is not possible to use two electric heaters and drying the hair dryer! This is really the only complaint apart from that it's really perfect.
L'appartement est superbe, d'une propreté impeccable, l'équipement est au delà de toute attente (guides, séchoir, super équipement cuisine etc...) le seul soucis est l'apport en électricité notamment pour chauffer en hiver... heureusement on nous a gentiment prêté un chauffage à gaz parce qu'il n'est pas possible d'utiliser 2 chauffages électriques et de se sécher les cheveux au séchoir! C'est vraiment le seul reproche en dehors de cela c'est vraiment parfait.
Which apartment! 140 square meters of comfort with two proper single beds in one bedroom and a double bed in the other. Two nice bathrooms, substantial kitchen and plenty of storage space. The apartment is on the fourth floor of an old building with no elevator, but is well worth the climb up the 67 steps. The small balcony faces a rather dull courtyard but with great afternoon sun. Out on the street, however, there are French doors that you can open and view over Lisbon's rooftops. The street below passes Lisbon's popular tram (No. 28) with a stop just a little bit away. The house next door is a relatively large supermarket that has very good fresh bread every morning. The area is a bit run-down and seedy but with everything within walking distance.
Vilken lägenhet! 140 kvm komfort med två ordentliga enkelsängar i det ena sovrummet och en bekväm dubbelsäng i det andra. Två fina badrum, rejält utrustat kök och massor av förvaringsutrymme. Lägenheten ligger på fjärde våningen i ett gammalt hus utan hiss, men är väl värd klättrandet uppför de 67 trappstegen. Den lilla balkongen vetter mot en ganska tråkig innergård men med skön eftermiddagssol. Ut mot gatan däremot finns det franska balkonger som man kan öppna och se ut över Lissabons hustak. På gatan nedanför passerar Lissabons populäraste spårvagnslinje (nr 28) med hållplats bara en liten bit ifrån. I huset bredvid finns en relativt stor supermarket som har väldigt gott nybakat bröd varje morgon. Området är slitet och lite ruffigt men med allt inom gångavstånd.
The appartment is truly great and large! 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms.
Large living room as well as seperate kitchen en seperate dining room; all well equipped and nice decorated. one bedroom is at the street side, the other at the back side. Altough there are no bars or restaurants in very close distance, there is some noise from outside (tram/traffic) so please ensure to keep the doors from the bedroom closed...there is a ceiling van to controll the heath.
The living room has 2 doors to open to let the sun come in and relax. In the same building block there is a supermarket for your usual groceries. Tram stop is in 1 minute walking distance (tram #28), we used the Taxi quite often which also stops in front of the door and are very cheap (at least compared to the Netherlands) and everything is in close distance. All in all a very very good appartment to rent and good value for money.
Una estancia muy agradable y la propietaria de la casa muy simpática y amable. Sin duda lo recomiendo.
Somos una familia de cuatro miembros y pasamos tres días en Lisboa muy gratos. La casa -apartamento- está muy céntrica (diez minutos andando de la Plaza del Comercio), con buenas conexiones de tranvía y metro crecanas. La casa es amplia y cómoda, con sólo un pero: es un cuarto sin ascensor, pero se trata del centro de Lisboa y supongo que eso es lo habitual.
Un piso estupendo. Luminoso, amplio y en una zona tranquila. A pesar de los 67 escalones. Una cosa que no nos gustó fue tener que ir a otra zona de la ciudad a por las llaves, y que yendo dos matrimonios sólo nos dieran un juego de llaves. Ah, y un poco intransigentes con la hora de salida no habiendo huéspedes esperando. Por lo demás, muy recomendable.
