Welcome to Cosy Apartment in Lively Bairro Alto, a comfortable and charming apartment placed in a centenary building of the widely known Bairro Alto area.

In 3 minutes walking distance you can reach the elegant and beautiful Chiado, that leads you to the downtown of the city (Baixa) and Rossio, in less than 10 minutes by foot.

All transports are very close: metro station of Baixa-Chiado (green/blue line), tram 28 and bus 758 are on a 3 minutes walking distance! The train stations of Rossio and Cais do Sodré are only 10 minutes away.

The apartment is set on a XVI century's building, which was recently redecorated and updated but still has some antique elements that are being kept for centuries, like the balconies made of stone and wrought iron, the old style wood doors, etc.

This is the perfect choice to go out at night for a drink, to eat well in a great variety of traditional or modern restaurants and enjoy the enviroment from the balcony. It's a one lifetime experience!

The area is typically Lisboeta and has a true traditional neighborhood feeling. The morning light offer you a pleasant breakfast while enjoying a bit of sunshine on the balcony.

The streets covered with cobbledstones and historic buildings with 500 years that create the sensation of being in the Medieval age for a few moments!

The apartment hosts comfortably 3 people (in a double bed and a single bed).

The apartment is placed on the 1st floor, with some steep steps and there is no elevator in this kind of traditional buildings. Therefore, is not suitable for wheelchair users or people with mobility difficulties.

"Charming city and flat."

Lisbon is a really surprising and wonderful city and this flat is great. Located in the middle of the old part of town where the nightlife is at its best. It is very noisy at night but it didn't bother us. Joana is a great host and she really made us feel at home! Any questions we had she answered quickly and she had some very good tips for places to go. The people in general are friendly and the city is nice and compact so it's easy to walk around. The old parts of town are especially nice. Loads of nice restaurants and bars to choose from. A definite big yes!!! Thanks Joana!
