A subtle combination of retro pieces with more contemporary items
By bringing back to life a selection of retro style furniture and objects from the 50s, the owner has set up a place in complete harmony with some very old shops characteristic of the lower city area, with a special nod to Otra Face da Lua, a small boutique swarming with clothes, wallpaper, old time hats, and where you may enjoy a coffee or a light meal.
Located right in the middle of Rua Augusta, one of the most famous pedestrian street of the city, the Baixa Retro apartment is on the 2nd floor (no elevator) of a typical building of the Baixa Pombalina district, an area that was completely rebuilt after the 1755 earthquake following the initiative of the Marques de Pombal.
The apartment, which can accommodate up to 4 people, has two bedrooms and a complete bathroom with a shower. One of the rooms, which faces the street, has a double bed and a beautiful antique bergère armchair, whilst the second bedroom, without windows to the outside, has two single beds.
The lounge area offers guests a sofa and armchair set in the clean cut 50s style but entirely redone. Other objects of the same period will delight all those who are keen on the 50s, such as a little fridge that serves as a place for storage.
A very large fully equipped kitchen is to be found on the back side of the apartment. A cable-ready TV will allow you to catch a movie if you so wish.
The flat is equipped with WIFI wireless internet.
If you stay at the Baixa Retro enjoy all the nearby restaurants in the very street and walk to all you sightseeing around the city.

The Baixa which means “downtown” is delimited by a hill on each side : Chiado and Bairro Alto on one side and the Castelo hill on the other side. Until the end of the XIXth century, the city was entirely dedicated to the trade business with the Indies. Any ship coming from the colonies would dock at Terreiro do Paço. It is in this same area that king D. Manuel ordered his Palace to be built in the XVIth century. But in 1755, an earthquake destroyed entirely this part of the city and it had to be reconstructed, following this time a geometric grid design for streets and squares. Trade activity always took place in the Praça do Comercio under the arcades, by the Tagus river bank, but nowadays it gave place to Ministries. From the square start several shopping streets, like the rua Augusta, a very busy pedestrian street with cafes and stores. The Baixa area stretches until Rossio, the most central square of the city, famous for its cafés, like café “Nicola” or the pastry “Suiça”, but also for its train station, a beautiful monumental building with a superb typical façade of Manuelin style, where all trains leave to Sintra.

Amazing apartment, superbly located if want to be right in the middle of everything. Tomas and his siser were brilliant - on hand for any queries and quick to sort things out. Would thoroughly recommend. Love, Love, Loved it. Thank you

Location - close to both Alfama and Bairro Alto/Chiado.
Jacob Christoffer, Denmark 10 July 2012
Quite a bit of noice from the streets during sleeping hours.
Our host liliana was so nice and informative. she created for us a guide printed out about Lisbon. She was also available to reach outside of when she first gave us the keys. The apartment was clean and the location was perfect. I would definitely book here again.
Anais, United States 17 June 2012
Extremely well located. The owner was super friendly, helpful.
Albana, Canada 19 May 2012
Location of the apartment was excellent! Liliana's recommendations and help were invaluable.
David, Belgium 14 May 2012
I think the bathroom needs some work. There is no ventilation system in the bathroom to allow steam from the shower to go out. Also, the tub leaks water onto the floor, and the tub drains slowly. There were also many insects in the bathroom (perhaps due to the water which leaks from the tub). Lastly, perhaps you can prepare a list of instructions on how to work the TVs.
Location, location, location ! ! On pedestrian street, two blocks from Metro station(Rossio), 3 blocks from the Rossio train station to Sintra, 3 blocks from tram stop to Belem, 2 blocks from Tram 28 stop, 3 blocks from Commercial Square, 2 blocks from the Elevador de Justa. Wonderful central location. Lots of reasonable restaurants on the three pedestrian streets. Owner met us at the apartment, provided lots of information and suggestions, recommended a great restaurant with typical Portguese food and also provided a welcoming bottle of wine ! It was a splendid place to stay for ourselves and two children. Kitchen was well equipped.
Randy, Canada 10 May 2012
Het appartement is heel goed bevallen. Heel centraal gelegen, netjes/verzorgd en in een mooie jaren 50/60 stijl. Alles is heel goed bevallen.
Jirin, Netherlands 09 May 2012
We were travelling with a 1 year old so the central location made it easy to explore Lisbon and allowed us to go back to the apartment and rest throughout the day. The apartment was very well equipped, would definitely recommend it. Tomaz was very helpful and his restaurant suggestions were great! Great kitchen!
Makiko, Spain 05 May 2012
The only draw back was that being on Rua Augusta (main pedestrian street), it was quite loud on the weekend night and a little hard falling asleep (only a concern if you are a light sleeper). But if you want a central location that's what you can expect. In fact we loved being able to street watch from our apartment window. Rua Augusta is very lively and fun to watch!
Superb spotin the middle of via Augusta, very strategic for visiting all parts of Lisboa. Close to all kinds of public transport. train to Sintra round the corner.Very friendly reception, with good restaurant tips. Nespresso coffeemachine and dishwasher.We walked to Amalfi everynight for having diner.next time Lisboa, i,ll bool this again for sure!
Ilse, Netherlands 24 April 2012
If you are a lite sleeper than you,d better take the middle room instead of the front one,for the weekend. In this room it is very quiet.
Me ha encantadotodo. Su ubicación, la decoración,los servicios y la amabilidad de sus propietarios. Residir en estos dias en este apartamento ha hecho que nuestro viaje haya sido absolutamente confortable y agradable.
Modesta, Spain 16 April 2012
The apartment is very central - it was very clean and at check in we got a lot of information about the area and tips and tricks on what to see and do. I can highly recommend it :-).
Tanja, Denmark 15 April 2012
ja, perfecte ligging, check in met veel informatie.
Johan, Netherlands 18 March 2012
Het appartement is op zich goed bevallen vanwege de centrale ligging in de stad, maar totaal ongeschikt voor twee stellen. Er zijn geen twee slaapkamers met privacy. De 2de slaapkamer ligt met glazen deuren aan de grootste slaapkamer.
Frans, Netherlands 05 March 2012
Zie boven, de foto's suggereren dat je er met twee stellen goed slaapkamers hebt, maar dat is gewoon niet zo. Als we dat geweten hadden, zouden we niet geboekt hebben. Ondanks de vriendelijke aankomst waren we toch wat verbaasd over de afhandeling van het vertrek. we moesten er vroeg uit omdat er weer vroeg nieuwe gasten kwamen. het is toch heel gebruikelijk om tot twaalf uur/een uur de tijd te hebben om te vertrekken, maar we moesten er echt om elf uur uit zijn. Jammer is ook dat er wel ramen in de keuken waren maar je er niet doorheen kon kijken. Al met al niet voor herhaling vatbaar, zelfs niet voor één stel, ook al is de ligging werkelijk perfect.
Location, lots of space and lots of character. Thomaz could not have been nicer or more helpful.
Patricia, United States 27 February 2012
I was not expecting the apartment to be so chilly. But this is the way of old buildings.
