An artist apartment at the foot of the São Jorge Castle

On the slopes of the São Jorge Castle hill is located this charming two bedroom flat; its windows opening onto a magnificent view of the city. Here you are in the medieval part of Lisbon, a few steps away from the castle, the most visited monument in Portugal but also next to many restaurants and the main points of interest for tourists.

The area surrounding the apartment:

The neighbourhood of Costa do Castelo features some of the most spectacular viewpoints of Lisbon. If you simply stroll around for a quick 30 minute walk, you will have views over most of the city and the Tagus river. Should you go up to the terraces of the São Jorge Castle, Lisbon will lie underneath at your feet. From here, turn towards the ocean and spend hours just watching the perfect geometry of the Baixa Pombalina, see the people moving among the narrow streets going up the Chiado to Bairro Alto. The neighbourhood is very typical, popular even with tiny groceries and other shops, its old persons sitting at their doorstep and giving you their warm welcome in Portuguese ! From the apartment, you will be a few stairs away from the Praça da Figueira, “twin” square of Praça do Rossio in the Baixa where you’ll find a very busy shopping area with typical Portuguese shops standing next to those with the newest brands of the market.

The apartment:

Not long ago, the Atelier do Castelo was the studio of an architect. Despite the remodelling of the house, it kept some of its attributes : a large architect desk, mockups, plants and many art books. In this early XXth century building painted in pink and overlooking the Baixa, your accommodation is on the ground floor with much quietness since the area is restricted for car transit.

The flat decoration is sober reminding its original use with some paintings by the owner on the walls. The living room has views and is comfortable with a sofa and an armchair, plus a dining corner. The kitchen is very traditional in style and kept the stone fireplace. Two rooms with a large bed (160cm) or two twin beds (2 x 80cm, one folded under the other) give capacity for four people. A few steps lead you to the bathroom with bathtub.

The apartement is within a car-restricted area where only taxis and residents' cars can enter. If you come by car you will only have a foot access and must park your car outside the area.

An ideal accommodation to relax and so close to everything in Lisbon.

This apartment does not have private parking; however, you will find public parking within 200 meters.

Wonderful view, apartment is fantastic designed, it has all you need, it is very spacious and for me very important thing is that bed is new and comfortable. You are in the center but also in very quiet street.
The only thing is that the apartment is almost on the top of Alfama. There is a lift very near, but it works until 9 pm. After that you can take a taxi or go home by foot. I like to walk, for me it was not problem. But I have to admit that I didn't expect so many stairs. Beside that, I would stay there again and I would highly recommend to anybody.

La situación y el equipamiento en general. La decoración. Me ha gustado que el inodoro y bidé estuvieran separados del resto del baño.
La habitación de dos camas resultaba muy pequeña y algo incómoda por estar las camas demasiado juntas. Poca luz en el espejo del baño y la ausencia de enchufe. El apartamento olía a humedad ( posiblemente llevaba tiempo cerrado). Se oían mucho las pisadas del piso superior. Loa asientos del sofá estaban hundidos y los brazos del sillón estaban algo sucios.

Das war das bisher beste und schönste App. über friendlyrentals (ich habe bereits mehrmals Madrid gebucht), sowohl was die Lage (wundervoller Blick vom Frühstückstisch auf Lissabon und tolle Sonnenuntergänge) als auch die Ausstattung betrifft. Preis/Leistungsverhältnis optimal; gemütliche, praktische und auch schöne Einrichtung. Auch wenn die Fenster der Schlafzimmer zur ebenerdigen Strasse rausführen, betraf uns das nicht; wir liessen einfach die Wohnzimmerfenster nachts offen, denn es war für eine Grossstadt erstaunlich ruhig auf "unserem Hügel", und die Strassenseite durch das Autofahrverbot minimal betroffen. Gerne empfehle ich es weiter, und wenn wir noch einmal nach Lissabon kommen sollten, würde ich es wieder buchen wollen, denn wir fühlten uns sofort wie zu Hause. Danke auch an Rui, der uns eine sehr umfangreiche Einführung über die Stadt, mögliche Aktivitäten und das App. gegeben hat.

The location of the apartment on the hill below the castle has a lovely view over the red roofs of the city. The apartment is well equipped and comfortable. It is within walking distance to the city centre, and has numerous grocery shops and restaurants within the vicinity.
The outside of the apartment at street level was surprisingly noisy at night especially between 11pm to 2am with cars zooming past near where the bedrooms are located. The rubbish truck also comes after midnight every night to pick the rubbish bags and can be rather noisy. As a light sleeper, I found it hard to have a good night's sleep without being interrupted by the noise outside.

Vielen Dank auch für den freundlichen Service.

Ja, appartement goed bevallen! Het zou wel goed zijn iets duidelijker aan te geven dat je heel veel trappen op moet om bij het appartement te komen. Voor oudere mensen lastig. Verder was het heerlijk toeven. Mooi uitzicht, rustig en goed beveiligd.
