I was thoroughly impressed throughout our stay at Heart Bairro Alto; I really can't recommend it enough. I was pleasantly surprised at its size, too - it was larger than it appears in the pictures!
The apartment is in a good central location, easy walking distance to both the metro and tram systems, and it is an easy walk to the train station which can take you along the coast to Belem, and slightly further along to the beaches at Estoril and Cascais.
It's easy to walk to almost all of the main tourist attractions, as well, if you don't mind the hills!
Tiago is excellent - he really made the trip an outstanding one; his instructions to reach the apartment were good, and he left us a note on places near the flat to eat, drink, and visit (as well as some of his favourites around the city), information about travel, as well as brief messages sent over email to us letting us know some details about good things to do.
As we were lucky enough to be visiting during Portugal Day, Lisbon's own 'Festas de Lisboa', and the opening of the world cup 2018 he was good enough to sendt us good ways to avoid the crowds, as well as ways to get involved as well via email.
There are only two small things worth noting if you are considering staying here: 1. If you have any difficulty with stairs then it probably isn't for you, as this is a loft apartment.
2. Bairro Alto is a great location for going out, and is situated above a a number of bars. This means that there is likely to be noise in the evenings and at night.
A great characterful apartment, very clean and modern, had everything needed for a comfortable stay.View across the roof tops from the small balcony, great for catching the sun. Tiago was a great host, full of useful advice, providing a guide to some great restaurants and places to eat and ideas of places to visit. The apartment is in the centre of the Bairro Alto so don't expect tranquility, it's a lively area! Easily reached on the metro from the airport. A very enjoyable stay.
