Lisbon has an extensive public transport network. Relying on the metros, buses, trams and tuk-tuks is one of the most cost efficient and flexible manners of discovering the city and visit the many museums, monuments and markets. Right in front of the accommodation you can catch a bus to Cais do Sodré (with train and metro connections) or to the cultural centre of Belem. By train you can go to Sintra and Cascais, and to the beaches.
Taxis in Lisbon (e.g. “Über) are reliable and surprisingly good value for traveling around the city and make your traveling around very convenient.
It is also possible to rent a bike in Lisbon, however you need some genuine urban cycling skills in order to be able to delight in cycling between the road traffic and the tram lines. The topography is quiet hilly. Parque das Nacoes is said to be one of the safest and most pleasant cycling spots. It is complemented by the cycle path laid out between Baixa and Belem along the Tejo River promenade.
To go to the Algarve, before or after your stay, you go to bus station Sete Rios. It will take you about 3 hours to get to yhe Algarve.
A car rental is not recommended in Lisbon centre as parking is difficult and expensive.
The apartment is located in the district of Estrela, one of the most noble and prestigious areas of Lisbon. You are next to the São Bento area, with its lovely antique shops scattered through the streets and the many small restaurants and cosy cafes, such as the Café de São Bento, BeBel Bistrô and the Cantinho da Paz. In the afternoon you can enjoy tea at Santa Isabel. You can walk to the historical centre and popular areas such as Bairro Alto and Principe Real. Within 10 minutes you can stroll through the lovely Estrela Garden or visit the Basilica da Estrela.
There is both a supermarket and a lovely bakery at a two minute walk from your accommodation.
At the terrace opposite the street you can enjoy a drink, breakfast or lunch.
Great space, great host!!! Exactly how advertised. Would definitely stay there again. Arianne is a fabulous host.

“Dear Arianne, thank you very much for your kind hospitality. I found your apartment very convenient. I was visiting ISEG Business School for a conference and I believe that among all 150 participants I stayed the closest to the venue. I am only sorry that I could not stay longer. To other guests, I recommend to visit also places out of Lisbon, such as palace and gardens of Queluz, Cabo da Roca – a cape which forms the western most continental Europe, and Cascais and Estoril. Farewell and goodbye.”

Hi! My name is Arianne and I will be your host. I was born in Holland, but grew up in Lagos, Portugal, a small town in the Algarve. In 2009 I moved to Lisbon to take my bachelors degree in Marketing Communication. In 2013 I decided to take my MA degree in Design and Visual Culture. Currently I work in both areas, at a Portuguese customised shoe brand, called Freakloset. I love Lisbon, and will be happy to tell you about the best places to visit!
