“Excellent home base for exploring Lisboa”
Reviewed 10 June 2014

We loved this apartment. It was very comfortable, with a kitchen, and located in a great area a couple of blocks from Praca do Comercio. Our hostess, Mariana, was very pleasant and helpful, giving us just the right amount of guidance for exploring this beautiful city. We knew we would enjoy this, but our experience of this place, and the city far exceeded our expectations. We were sad to leave, and can't wait to return. By the way, it is also located a block away from the Napoleao wine shop, where we tasted and bought several bottles of wonderful Portuguese wine. We highly recommend Casas da Baixa!

Wow! This apartment is amazing. We stayed in a one bedroom room # 2B on 2nd floor. Adult daughter accompanied my wife and I on trip to Portugal. Stayed 2 nights and could have stayed forever. This apartment is tastefully decorated, comfortable and roomy for 3 people. Refrigerator, Stove, microwave, and full set of dishes and silverware along with items to cook if you want. (We did not as there are so many great locations to eat very close by) Location is perfect for exploring St. Jorge Castle & Alfama area (8 blocks). Great for catching TRAM 28 (4 blocks) Just a couple of blocks from Praca do Comericio and major shopping district of Rossio & Baxia-Chaido. 4 blocks to Waterfront. (NOTE- we used the Metro from Airport and then walked 4 blocks to the apartment. (Stop on Metro is Terreiro do Paco- Blue Line) The management sent us a code 48 hours before the stay for front door and for apartment entrance. Made it so easy for 3 people. We just plugged the codes in our cell phone notes and it was great as we did not have to mess with keys. Where to eat- NOVA Pombalina- just a block away for lunch and it was great. We had the Papparazzi- Veggie & Cheese Sandwich, Chicken Soup. Chicken Sandwich was very good. Try the fresh juices or have a beer with lunch. ALSO- we loved this place. About 6 blocks away- Indian Gate- Loved the Indian food. Some of the best we have ever had! Also for late afternoon or evening drinks and tapas- Bar Trobadores- a medieval place with wooden tables, chairs and music. Try the Cheese, Meat & bread tray served with sides of honey and olive oil for dipping.

This is a perfect place to stay when you want to visit Lisboa. The apartments are in a fully renovated building, with all the comfort you need. The design is class , it is really a place to feel at home. We had a apartment on the 4th floor, it was quiet and fresh. We had one bedroom in the back and could sleep with open windows, witch was super and quiet. The service was perfect, bed and towels changed every other day. The system of code locks is so easy, no stress about keys, everyone can come and go as he likes. The location is really the best, you are near everything you need to visit and all the nice places for dinner or breakfast . I would definitely go back there and recommend it to all my friends.

Room Tip: The higher , the best.

After a warm welcome by the manager herself we were ready to step out the door and directly discover the city centre! The apartment itself was very nice; perfectly situated in the centre (near Praca do Comercio), clean, light, trendy and comfortable.

We stayed 4 days in a studio at Casas da Baixa. No check-in or check-out fuss, it all goes automatically with the entrance code. All comfort is available: lots of daylight in the apartments, no noise, nice kitchen, wifi, elevator, i.e. all you need. Very well located, close to the water, close to restaurants and metro. Very neat and clean. Can only recommend this place.

Location: The apartment was very central and so well located for all things really, although this did also mean the surrounding streets were a little noisy first thing in the morning despite the double glazing. That said, I am a stupidly light sleeper! I did also fall back to sleep quite quickly each morning!

Style:
The style of the apart emir t was fab- just like our first flat in Norting Hill- old building newly renovated with lovely hog ceilings, minimalist design etc etc. had a great feel although could have done with a few hooks to hang stuff here and there and perhaps a tiny bit more storage space.

Service:
Mariana was fab- got food I beforehand as we were arriving late and also stopped by a couple of times to see if we needed anything. She was also super responsive to emails. The only possibly missing was a decent map as the one provided was poor quality and showed very few streets. She did, however, provide a good list of restaurants etc.

Altogether a fab stay and escape from our two young kids for 4 nights!!! Yay!

Casa de Baxia came highly recommended to us by two colleagues who both were previous customers. The property is so well located, all downtown attractions are only a walk away. Metro station, tram and bus stops and also train stations are also just a walk away and there are several eating places and cafes around (you will be spoilt for choice). We were a family of two adults, two children (7 and 4 yrs old) and we booked the superior one bedroom apartment for 6 days in April 2014. The apartment was a very good size for our family, with one bedroom containing a double bed and a double sofa bed in the lounge (which was kept ready for us when we arrived at 12:30 in the night!), a dining area and an adequate, very well equipped kitchenette and bathroom. The apartment itself was very charming, tastefully decorated, well equipped with all facilities (although, the addition of a washing machine cum dryer would be an added bonus) and very clean (a major plus with me). There was free wifi and free local telephone calls from a landline. The cleaning service was also very good. They changed towels regularly and also vaccumed the floors for us on request. The service from Marianna, the manager was excellent. She went the extra mile to help us with all sorts of things like airport transportation to begin with. She had already left us a list of recommendations for restaurants when we arrived but in addtion, she was very forthcoming with responses (via email and telephone) to all sorts of further personal enquiries, including where the nearest supermarket was, recommendations for good fado houses etc. She also visited personally one morning, which was very useful as we could feedback and make requests to her directly. This apartment is highly recommended for it's central location (which made eating out and travelling, even to places outside Lisbon, a very easy and pleasant experience), cleanliness, friendly and excellent service, all coupled with a reasonable price (a balance hard to find easily in a big city in a central location). I would definately stay here again!
