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 the stone and wood walls and the wood windows. 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 backyard. 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 cobbled stones, 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 4 people. The apartment is placed on a ground-floor, so no need of elevators! Although, is not suitable for wheelchair users or people with mobility difficulties due to some architectural barriers. THE APARTMENT - 2 double bedrooms with real mattress (140cm x 200cm) - 1 living room with sofa and 2 couches - 1 kitchen with microwave, fridge, electric stove, washing machine, iron, coffee machine and other small kitchen appliances - 1 bathroom with shower and hairdryer - Cable TV - Free wifi internet - Towels & bed sheets included - Electric Heating & Fan - Pleasant Backyard with Shower CLEANING The apartment is clean before arrival and bed sheets and towels are changed. For stays longer than 1 week, towels and sheets are provided upon request. On the arrival, some welcome gifts will be at your disposal! THE NEIGHBORHOOD Just next to the apartment you will find the supermarket Minipreço, groceries shops, Praça das Flores, a beautiful and romantic garden with a fountain in the middle, where you can read a book, drink a coffee or eat on the on the cosy restaurants and coffee esplanades. Pão de Canela esplanade offers one of the best Lisbon's delicious brunches on weekends. The Rua da Escola Politécnica and Rua D. Pedro V are known for their stylist fashion shops, trendy restaurants, fine pastries, panoramic views and sunny esplanades. On Saturday, there is an organic market on Principe Real garden where you will find a great variety of healthy fruits and vegetables from Portuguese producers. Down the hill, in São Bento street is placed the Portuguese parliament and there are plenty of antiques shops and Amalia house museum. The famous Café de São Bento is here and you can taste the best steak of Lisbon! The famous viewpoint of São Pedro de Alcântara is also very close, where you can enjoy a beautiful view of Lisbon! On the riverside you can rent a bike and enjoy the beautiful views. Principe Real is a cool urban chic area and is considered one of the most trendy areas of the city.
