The Red Studio is located in an 18th century renovated building in the heart of Mouraria, a charming neighborhood in the old Lisbon. The street is called Beco das Flores and sits 5 minutes away from the Castle. It's a small flat but fully equipped.

The space

It's an ideal choice for a couple.

The apartment stands at the top of a street called Beco das Flores, just 5 minutes away from the Castle and 3 minutes from Baixa/Rossio. It is very luminous, with two windows facing south enjoying direct sunlight and a pleasant view towards the quiet Largo da Achada. The built-in cozy window seats are welcoming for reading or for a cup of tea.

The kitchenette has all you need for cooking and eating in, and there's a good supermarket within 3 minute walking distance. (You’ll find a Portuguese cookbook in English on the bookshelf.)

Mouraria is also one of the best areas in the city for eating out. Within a 5 minute walk you'll find many options for tasting authentic Portuguese cuisine at very reasonable prices, as well as a surprisingly wide variety of restaurants serving African and Asian traditional food.

The Red Studio is a perl in the heart of old Lisbon. It has everything you could wish for in a small apartment and more to make for a memorable stay. João will help you find all the local things you are looking - for thanks for that :). There is even a cute open air cinema right in front of the house. Go and stay here you won't regret it!

Thanks Joao, compact and cosy studio. A fantastic, and very quiet location, which offered the opportunity to support and very much enjoy the local cafes and restaurants, and especially the very welcoming local people. All in all we will have extremely positive memories of Lisbon, and your lovely studio, thank you

This is the place to stay if you are visiting Lisbon! Close to all areas, easy transportation, excellent restaurants. Studio was very clean with all the necessities to make your stay most comfortable. João met me near the studio when I could not find it. He was very attentive and helpful. You won't be disappointed!

We had amazing time in Joao's apartment! The place is small but perfect organized, we really had everything what we could possibly need. So warm and nice place we couldn't even imagine before we came. Joao is a great host, he was very responsive and helpful before we arrived, even come to picked us up when we got lost :-) He found perfect parking place for our car just in front of the apartment and give us very valuable tips about not so well known sights in Lisboa. We would definitely come back again and we very recommend this place! Joao, thanks a lot for everything! Ivana & Gagi

Nice and cozy apartment right near the castle (which is must see for the tourists). João is a great guy. He'd met us at 1 in the night and found a place to eat (saved us). We've enjoyed the apartment a lot) Supermarket- 5 mins All the equipment in the apartment. Clean and "self made smart home" (you'll understand).

The Red Studio is a perfect place for a solo traveler, but there is enough space for a couple. Not only is it well-located and adorable - it has every amenity you could wish for and was spotlessly clean when I arrived. I stayed for a whole week and really enjoyed being able cook once in a while and do laundry. It's tucked away on a little alley, so there's little street noise. The hideaway bed was comfortable and made this little place feel spacious. João is an excellent host and will go out of his way to make sure you have everything you need.

Perfect, cozy studio in the heart of Mouraria neighborhood, which is close walking distance to great local restaurants, Alfama, and all the major shopping and attractions. The studio is really well maintained and designed. I love the built-in cabinets, seating benches, closets and the window shutters. Such a nice place! João also thought of everything and the studio is well equipped with everything you will need. He also has great restaurant and Fado suggestions. I would love to return for a longer stay!
