Apartment, Entire place - Cais do Sodré, Portugal

ID 393053
5.0 (1 review)


Located in the very heart of Lisbon old town, on Travessa da Larenjeira (Street of the orange trees), this 60 sqm, sunny third floor apartment sits in a traditional and well kept building.
It has been completely renovated and refurbished in November 2015, and decorated with an eye for details.
It comprises a lobby, a spacious and always sunny living-room/dining area.
There are 3 bedrooms : 2 equipped with a double bed, one with 2 twin-beds that can be reunited.
The kitchen is fully equipped : induction stove, oven/Mo, dishwasher, washing/drying machine.
The compact bathroom has an Italian shower and a constant supply of hot water. Comes in handy for a group of friends or a big family!
There is Wi-Fi, cable television and laundry/ironing facilities.
This apartment is the perfect combination of tradition and modernity!

Santa Catarina/Bica, the oldest and most scenic neighbourhood of Lisbon, is as well the most central you can imagine :
It's just a few steps from Bairo Alto, a stomping ground of lively bars and restaurants.
It's 2 mns away from Chiado (Baixa-Chiado metro station, Praca do Camoes), one of this city’s most notorious shopping quarters,
It's 5 mns from Cais do Sodre (check it's market). Well a bit more on the way back, as streets are steep here!
Its 10 mns from Rossio or Principe Real.
The most photographed street of Lisbon, Rua da Bica de Duarte Belo, is literally 20 meters from your doorstep. There, you will never get tired of watching Bica's funicular, Lisbon's spirit at it's best.
The mix in Santa Catarina is also fascinating : there is a Hermes flagship store 5 mns away, and an old and tiny shoe store just around!
The many restaurants, bars, galleries, shops, theaters and museums to choose from within a 5 minutes radium won't leave you with much time on your hands!
The area has got everything. From grocery shops to butchers, pharmacies bookstores and gift shops.
Here are a few things I would recommend in the neighborhood :
Start with a coffe at Cafe Brasileira. In this beautiful old place, you will feel the vibes of long gone Portuguese poets and writers.
Ride the Tram 28 for an amazing ride around the city (for just the price of a regular tram ticket).
Check the view at Miradouro Sta Catarina.
Go to a local place for lunch (try the , on Praca de Camoes), and ask for a Bifana (sandwich with a very thin steak inside. To be eaten with mustard!)
To head to the beach just walk down the road and jump on a train at the Cais do Sodré Train Station.

Taxi from the airport will cost you around 15-25 euros (up to 4 people), depending on traffic.
Metro ticket from the airport to Baixa-Chiado metro station is 2 euros. It's only a 5 minutes walk from the metro station to my apartment.
There are a lot of buses and a couple trams a stone’s throw away which means you can access pretty much everywhere from here.
You can catch a train to Cascais and Sintra down the street.

    I stayed in Charles' apartment with my husband, parents and my brother and his wife (three couples in total) and had a great stay. Charles was helpful and lovely to deal with, contacted us straight away by email to organise check in, etc, and was really responsive whenever we had any questions. Apartment is just lovely, beautifully decorated, new and really clean. Really spacious, each couple had their own bedroom, and sunny all day. Kitchen is fully equipped (even though we ate out mostly be cause of all the great, local restaurants around). Good fast wifi. Location is fantastic, couldn't be more central and is right next to the Bica funicular and in the centre of the Baixa Chiado neighbourhood with heaps of cafés, stores, restaurants and tourist sites. Had a great stay and highly recommend.

    Charles war sehr zuverlässig und stets hilfsbereit. Er hielt sehr fürsorglich Kontakt mit uns. Vor Ort war er nicht, aber das machte nichts, er hatte alles sehr gut organisiert.

    I did not get the chance to meet Charles except for our brief talk on the phone. His wife Amelia received me and was very charming and welcoming. We spoke a bit and when it was time to take the pictures she left me to it. Amelia was very nice and welcoming I would definitely stay in one of their apartments if I had the chance. ///This review was written by an official Member of the 9flats Team ///
