Santos River Apartments
Ranked #164 of 492 Speciality Lodging in Lisbon
Reviewed 1 October 2013

We stayed for three nights in apartment 4B, which is on the top floor of a beautifully renovated building. The apartment is fresh and modern, with a kitchen with all you need for self-catering and a bedroom with a king size bed. The apartment overlooks the river, in the once salubrious Cais Sodre area. The area is now home to some excellent bars and nightlife, and is close to all the main tourist attractions and shops. It is also a major transport hub, with rail, bus, metro and ferry services. Thoroughly recommended place to stay. A special mention to the member of staff who checked us in - she was wonderfully helpful and friendly.

Room Tip: You can arrange for a late check out (beyond the very early 10am) or arrange for your luggage to be...

It will be a good idea to stay in this apartment. It takes you only 15 minutes to get it from the airport to Cais do Sodre by the aerobus 1 (3,50 € per person). Or 20 minutes by a taxi (10 €). It is a bit difficult to find the apartments. There are the sing "Aldeco" on the second floor and the sing "Rochebobois" on the first floor. "Santos River Apartaments Lisbon" are located on the 3th and the 4th floors. We had the apartment 4B on the 4th floor. There are 3 rooms: a bedroom, a living room and a kitchen. It's clean with the comfortable furniture.
There are a microwave, dishwasher, mixer, stove, oven, washing machine, refrigerator, teapot and coffeemaker in the kitchen. There a Hairdryer and an iron there. Stuff is very kind. Particularly, Maria. My thanks to you for her helping with our DHL's problem.
It would be better to book an apartment on the 3rd floor (the best view). A good food shop is located nearby (at the railway station "Cais do Sodre"). It is open from 7.30 am till 11 pm. It takes you only 15 minutes to get the "Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga" (right) or "Placa do Comercio" (left) on foot. There are several good restaurants on the embankment nearby.

Room Tip: It would be better to book an apartment on the 3rd floor (the best view).

These apartments are on the 3rd and 4th floors of a renovated block 200 yds from the Cais de Sodre train station for trains to Cascais, giving lovely views over the river. It's a 10 min walk to Bairro Alto and Chiado. They are nicely appointed if perhaps a little lacking in character for the price. Service and communication was easy and professional.

The apartment building is in a great location just below Bairro Alto. The apartment I stayed in for 5 nights, was in good condition. Everything was well prepared and you get all necessary information beforehand. The street can be a little noisy, which is why you cant sleep with open window. Good connection to both train stations if you want to explore Portugal a bit (45 min train ride to Cascais - very convenient)

Consider yourself lucky if you can book an apartment here! We stayed for a week, and it was a perfekt location for seeing Lisbon and area around. The apartment was fully equipped, the marked was next door, bus,tram,metro,and train across the street, and we enjoyed watching the trafic on the river. A couple of blocks away we fond several local resaurants, try Povo (with Fado), Rio Grande and Rosina, all good at very reasonable prices.

I stayed for 3 months at Santos River and I highly recommend it. It is ideal for longer stays but even if you come for a couple of days or a long weekend it is a very good alternative to a hotel. Besides the excellent location (walking distance to Chiado and Bairro Alto) and breathtaking river views, the staff is very friendly and efficient and really make you feel at home (thanks Maria! :))

Room Tip: If you only need 1 bedroom take the corner apartment on the 3rd floor

I'm here for a business stay. Apartment is simple but comfortable. Service is fast and reliable. Excellent location, just next to Cois Sodré and close to the night life.

It's a perfect place for whoever needs an apartment instead of a hotel.

Room Tip: There's either river view or no view at all.
