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 recent...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.More
