Welcome to Birds Apartment, a charming and comfortable apartment placed in a centenary building of Principe Real area.

Located in a historic neighborhood of Lisbon, it's a few steps away from Praça das Flores, between Principe Real and the Parliament.

In 15 minutes walking distance you can reach the glamorous Avenida da Liberdade, the downtown (Baixa), Chiado, Rossio and the Tagus River.

Bairro Alto is just aside of Principe Real, which means that in less than 10 minutes you can enjoy Fado or have a drink in one of the hundreds of bars.

The metro station of Rato is 10 minutes walking distance or 3 minutes by bus and the Yellow Bus tours stop just in front of Amalia House museum, a few meters away from the apartment.

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

It's the perfect choice for those who prefer staying in a quiet area with a true traditional neighborhood feeling, but close enough from all facilities and touristic attractions.

The morning light offer you a pleasant breakfast while enjoying a bit of sunshine on the balcony.

The area is typically Lisboeta and is safe. The prime minister house is a few blocks away and many politicians and journalists live around here.

The streets covered with cobbledstones, sparrows and blackbirds singing and sometimes parrots as well, create a beautiful atmosphere and make you forget that you are very close from the city center!

The apartment hosts comfortably 2 people but fit in maximum 4 people.

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.

"Lovely apartment- great location"

If you really want to experience life in Lisbon I would recommend this apartment. The area is full of small shops, parks and cafes and you hardly feel like a tourist at all. It's very central, so easy to get to all the sights. The river is also very near for relaxing walks after a day spent sightseeing in the city. Plenty of restaurants nearby, so no need to worry about cooking if you don't feel like it. The apartment itself is in one of the old Lisbon houses (steep steps!), which I thought charming, but offers all the modern amenities you need (good kitchen/bathroom, wifi, TV etc). I stayed for 10 days and it was a perfect place to enjoy Lisbon.

"Perfekt"

Sweet and very helpful hostess who helped us prioritize what we should see in Lisbon when we only had 3 days available. She found a parking garage where we could park in the area. Lovely clean apartment in a perfect area down town. We would always recommend Joanna's apartment.

"Beautiful apartment in a perfect location with a delightful host"

This is an absolutely beautiful and very well kept apartment in quiet yet fantastic location which is fairly central and well connected by tram and metro. There is a very tranquil square just 2 minutes walk away with a very nice café and a really excellent restaurant. The square also has a very good supermarket which sold everything we required.

The apartment was a perfect size for us - 2 adults and twin boys aged 3 and a half, particularly as the sofa bed converts into a proper full size double bed, which is just as comfortable as the real thing.

Joana was the absolute perfect host - very welcoming and friendly but also not at all intrusive - she went well beyond the call of duty in making this a perfect stay for us, including helping us with the logistics of getting around Portugal days after we had moved out.

If we ever stay in Lisbon again we wouldn't go anywhere else - highly recommended!!
