Bairro Alto dates back to the 16th century and is characterized by its small workshops and restaurants. By day, it is a quiet sleepy area (recently pedestrianized), by night the area becomes alive and is a popular place to dine and drink away the early hours.
Príncipe Real is an elegant 18C and 19C neighborhood with a pleasant centenarian park having a quiet open air café and the water museum – Museu da água). In the neighborhood, there are several very good restaurants and bars, all kind of commerce, including antique shops, the park of Principe Real and the oldest Botanical Garden of Lisbon and the Botanical Garden (Jardim Botânico) of the University Clássica of Lisbon. You can also go to all the restaurants and bars of Bairro Alto where the sentimental 'fados' are still sung in some restaurants and cafés.

The apartment was very centrally located in a quiet area. We received a warm welcome upon arrival. The apartment was very clean and well equipped. The terrace was beautiful especially in the evening time and was a great asset to the apartment. Overall a very pleasant stay and would stay here again on a return visit to Lisbon.
Nous vous remercions de vos commentaires sur notre appartement. Ce fut un plaisir de vous accueillir et nous espérons vous voir bientôt.

Nice flat farly central. Check in and out was easy. Terrace is really a bonus. Wi-fi works fine. The only thing is that the bathroom is nice but it is not easy taking a shower without the water from the shower going everywhere on the bathroom floor. Glass Panel is pretty but just not good enough. Even a shower curtain could be better. Otherwise everything was quite good.
Thank you for the kind words. Very happy to have been a part of your successful visit to Lisbon.
Regarding the shower we look into it, and try to repair it or find a better solution. Thank you very much for your recommendation!
Hope to welcome you back in Lisbon.

A very nice ground floor apartment with a small terrace/balcony for sitting out. Very well equipped and comfortably furnished. Small supermarket and restaurants near by. Quite a long walk to the more tourist orientated areas. Buses 5 - 10 minutes walk away. Streets, as with much of Lisbon, are steep and have stone sets, so walking is not easy if you have walking problems.
