Apartment 242 is located in one of the oldest neighbourhoods of Lisbon, where you will most certainly experience the traditional Portuguese way of life. There are several other apartments at Bairro Alto and Bica.
It is at the border of Bairro Alto inside the way were the funicular Bica passes.
Lisbon's steeply sloping terrain has always been a serious problem for the transport of people and goods between the high and the low-lying areas. During the 19th century, in some areas, the company of transports in Lisbon used trams on rails pulled by animals. On the 28th June 1890 a new system was opened to the public at de street of Duarte Belo, copying the one already in use at Calçada do Lavra and Calçada da Glória. The initial traction system was by rack and cable, with water as the counter-weight and it started using electricity around 1912. The actual carriages where not changed since the thirties.
All the three funiculars in Lisbon, Calçada do Lavra, Glória and Bica were declared to be national monuments in February 2002.
Bairro Alto dates back to the 16th century and is characterised by its small workshops and restaurants. By day, it is a quiet sleepy area (recently pedestrianized); by night the area comes alive and is a popular place to dine and drink away the early hours. In Bica you can find the Bica funicular that connects Bairro Alto with Cais do Sodré (where you can catch the train that can take you to the beautiful beaches around Cascais).
It is close to shops, restaurants, cafés, banks, cash machines, public transport ( inccluding subway station Baixa/Chiado and electric trams) and 24 hour taxi stands, etc.
A wonderful experience of living right in the heart of the city!
Came and see for yourself!
L'appartement est très bien situé et bénéficie d'une très jolie vue sur Lisbonne. Tout était propre et parfait. L'accueil a été très sympathique.
Sim , a pessoa que nos recebeu demonstrou grande sentido de profissionalismo, o apartamento é de grande qualidade e a sua localização é perfeita.
Great place in central location. Has all you need for a nice stay in Lisbon. And is very quiet for Bairro Alto! Just a note for folks who don't like stairs - 4th floor with no lift. Was not problem for us though :)
A wonderful location in a truly amazing city. Perfect for first time visitors to Lisbon who want to explore, as well as returning visitors who want to be central to all the city has to offer. From the apartment views to the general ambiance of the neighborhood, it was one of the best times of my life and I cannot wait to return. Thank you for making it possible
The flat is great, it was clean and looked exactly like in the photos. A word of warning is that it's a fourth floor without elevator but the stairs didn't feel heavy. The location is amazing and the view from the balcony too. I would certainly consider staying there again.
