On a perfect location, full of light, with plenty of space and even a sunny terrasse, with beautiful design, this Duplex is the place to stay in Lisbon. The reviews speak for themselves!
If you're trying to find the best apartment for your Lisbon stay, there are 2 questions I'll have to answer:
QUESTION #1. WHY choose this Vintage Duplex?
- LOCATION: Because this 120sq/m apartment is in the middle of the historical centre, right in the heart of Bairro Alto with its trendy pubs, restaurants, coffees, fado houses, art galleries, libraries and trendy stores. It is 5m walking from the subway Baixa-Chiado, and 1 minute away from one of the most amazing Lisbon's viewpoints: Miradouro de São Pedro de Alcântara. You can walk to Chiado, Baixa and Principe Real (adjacent districts) where a lot of attractions are located, such as gardens, monuments and shops.
-AREA: Because 120 sq/m as mentioned before is a great choice for couples who want a romantic but spacious flat, but also for families, as it has enough space for 6 people to stay comfortably. Babies are most welcome, there is an extra bed for them with no extra charge.
- LIGHT&CHARM: Because it is really beautiful and incredibly sunny (there are no “interior rooms", each compartment has at least one window and is full of light), it has a very unique atmosphere, having been remodeled by an architect. It's fully equipped, has wireless internet and cable TV.
-ME: Last but not least, because its owner will do her best to make your stay as wonderful as possible.
QUESTION #2. WHY did I call my flat a “Vintage Duplex"?
Vintage: because the original building where it is located is from the1930ies, and the apartment, even if fully renewed keeps something of the 50 ies, 60 ies and 70 ies charm – partly because of some of the beautiful vintage furniture.
Duplex: because it has 2 floors;
-on the lower one, you have a living-room, a dining-room, a kitchen, a two sofa-bed room, a sunny marquise, a complete bathroom with bathtub, and a balcony over the street.
-on the upper floor, you have two separate double-bed bedrooms, each one of them having its private staircase. The larger bedroom is a suite – it has a toilet and a beautiful terrace, and is absolutely perfect for couples who want a romantic stay.
As the apartment is on the 2nd floor in a historical central Lisbon building, it doesn't have elevator and therefore is unfortunately not suitable for wheelchair users or guests with mobility problems.
Walking distance (5/10 minutes) from both down town Lisbon and subway/train station.
Transportation: Lisbon airport is just 15 minutes away. A taxi from the airport should not cost more than 15 (website hidden) bus stops at Restauradores - 10m walking up, you may prefer to just take the funicular and get there in 5m.

METRO - TRAIN - BUS: - Restauradores metro and train station: 3m walking - Baixa-Chiado metro station: 5m walking - Cais do Sodré metro and train station: 15m walking - Several bus stops nearby.

Airbnb will charge you a 200 EUR security deposit before your arrival which is returned at the end of the tenancy if there has not been any damage made to the apartment.
CHECK-IN and CHECK-OUT times are usually flexible, unless change-over days overlap between guests. In that case, check-out is at 10am and check-in is at 2pm.
EARLY (before 10:00) or LATE (after 21:00) check-ins have an additional cost of 20 euros.
Because I want to make your holiday in Lisbon as pleasant as possible, I ask you to contact me in case you have any suggestions or if there is anything you need, so I can do my best to improve your stay. Nothing will make me happier than have you review my flat with 5 stars in every topic!
