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.
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.
Fresh towels and bed linens are provided upon arrival. Free and unlimited wireless internet is available, with speed up to 20Mbps. There is a small compact stereo system with radio, alarm and iPod docking station.
