Wonderful, inviting, spacious apartment, in an excellent location. Very close to the train station - so it's very convenient if you plan to go to the beach, to visit Belem ( to see the stunning Jeronimos Monastery and eat pasteis de Natas), or to go to explore the downtown area it is a perfect choice.
At the same time the neighborhood is really calm and inviting with smaller cafés and family restaurants (we strongly recommend the family restaurant ''L'Arco da Velha'', as well as a delicious french café terrasse up the street from the appartment) . There are also more sophisticated ones, notably a beautiful and delicious upscale restaurant in a former monastery. Also the amazing Time Out Mercado da Ribeira is a 15 min walk from the apartment. There is a street car which goes to Praça Luis de Camoes, but you can easily walk there, as we did (approximately 25 min).
This apartment made our trip to Lisbon truly memorable. Located in a picturesque historic neighborhood, the apt is spacious, elegant, beautifully renovated with huge windows, high ceilings and all new amenities. From the interior it was obvious that the owners have the best taste. We loved the feel of the neighborhood with its local cafes and small restaurants. Very convenient to all sites, on foot, bus or tram. Full of charm and super comfortable. A gem.
