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!

The space

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.

Funicular Elevador da Glória: 1min walking from the house

Tram 28 - 5min walking, at Largo Camões

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.

CLEANING: Clean towels, linens and sheets are provided. Additional cleaning can be arranged for stays longer than 1 week.

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!

Claudia's apartment is located in a great part of the city and has all you need for a comfortable stay. The best bit? Being welcomed to the place by Carla who was so friendly and helpful - it really set the visit up from the beginning.

Claudia was so kind and seemed just as excited to host us as we were to stay in her home.

Claudia's flat is very well located in the nice area of bar al alto, nice area for nightlife, bars, restaurant. The flat is equipped with the necessary. We enjoyed our stay there and definitely will be staying there in the future.

Claudia's apartment is great and really central- right in the middle of Barrio Alto. Exactly as in the pictures but because of the layout it wouldn't be ideal for two couples as the front bedroom is open to the living room. We were 3 friends so it was totally ok for us! Thanks so much for having us Claudia.

Claudia's flat is right in the heart of Bairro Alto. Bars and restaurants are all within a short walk of the flat and the Time Out Market on the river front is only a 10 minute walk away. Host was excellent, always responded to my messages. The flat was very clean and had an unusual but fun layout that gave each of us a nice place to chill as well as private rooms to recharge our batteries. Would highly reccomend!

Location is really great. If you like to go out in the night this is great option. Close to bars and restaurants. 3rd bad is not so great, but friend of mine did not mind. Had very good communication with Claudia. I would recommend this apartment.

The apartment is really big - it has a salon and three bedrooms - two of them on second level with separate stairs (!). I thing that there is no aircon - which we did not need anyway, but it may really hot in summer - the apartment is on the top floor with lots of windows. We did use the heaters though for a couple of nights. The location could not be better - in the middle of the Old Town and yet the bedrooms are quiet and the noise from the neighbouring bars can't be heard. The closest metro station is Baixa-Chado, near which there is also the famous 28 tram stop. The apartment had all basic stuff you might need. Communication with Claudia was excellent - very prompt response! She also recommended a good taxi service from and to the airport. Thanks Claudia for everything!
