CASA DA ESPERA: Sunny and stylish renewed apartment for 4, perfectly located in Bairro Alto, Lisbon’s most exciting old district.

Just 2 minutes away from Praça Luís de Camões, where the lively Bairro Alto meets the glamorous Chiado, CASA DA ESPERA offers a perfect location to explore the many facets of this unique city.

The space

CASA DA ESPERA got its name from its street address, Travessa da Espera (“Alley of the Waiting”). For centuries, it has been a meeting point for friends, where they would wait for each other to explore Bairro’s nightlife together, hence originating this peculiar street name. Hopefully, CASA DA ESPERA will also be your gateway into the unique Bairro Alto district.

CASA DA ESPERA sits on an early 20th century building, blending the traditional atmosphere of old Lisbon with the modern amenities of a fully equipped apartment, totally renovated in November 2016. Just 200m away, you’ll find the subway station (Baixa-Chiado) and the historical Tram Nº28, famous for its breathtaking city views.

Venture yourself through the steep traditional stairways into the 3rd floor, and discover a friendly and playful atmosphere just waiting for you.

The decoration is cool and elegant, but very relaxed.The living room is bright and luminous. Its two windows allow a privileged view over the typical Lisbon roof tiles, at the same time they invite the pristine Lisbon light in. Feel free to turn on the vintage radio, enjoy the board games or read the books we left in the house. Get inspired by the Camões and Pessoas’s poems we’ve selected for you.

The bedroom is cosy and charming, as it should, so you can rest from your busy and eventful days in Lisbon. The sofa in the living room also turns into a comfortable bed for two extra people. The kitchen has all the equipment you’ll need to enjoy your stay, from a casual breakfast to a full course dinner. You can get groceries from small stores in the neighbourhood.

We really hope to make you feel at home! Don’t forget to leave a special message in our guest book or on the entrance blackboard, for the next guests.

Small but lovely apartment right in the city centre. It was very bright and easy to access everything with a Metro station 5 minute walk away. It's a little noisy outside due to being in the centre of a popular district, but we enjoyed this! The hosts were really helpful and quick to reply! Be warned the steps up to it are steep and the doorways are particularly narrow, but we didn't find it a problem!

Tiny but perfect place in the beating heart of lisboa Bairro Alto. If you’re a light sleeper; keep the windows closed. It’s on the third floor - keep in mind if you carry a lot of luggage. It’s clean, hip and.... Because of all the small doorways you’ll walk sideways a lot ;). The location of the appartment is perfect, slap bang in the middle of Bairro Alto - nice and central location to visit everything you want to see.

We had a great stay in this very well located flat, close to the city center, public transports, and all the places to be visited in Lisbon! For light sleepers, note that the neighborhood is a bit noisy at night although you easily get used to it :)

This is a clean apartment in the lively neighbourhood of Bairro Alto. It's close to the market and many shops and restaurants. The host is nice and communicative and accommodating. However when we were there (August) it was extremely loud outside so we did not get good sleep during our stay. This is a tourist bar zone with people in their early 20s singing and yelling well into the sunlit hours of the morning. So if you're one of the crowd this apartment makes sense for you. Otherwise I would choose a quieter street. This is not the hosts fault but something to be aware of.

We stayed for two weeks in the apartment at our arrival in Lisbon and had a wonderful time. Very well located (we could walk anywhere or take the subway just a few minutes away), bright and clean, it was really a perfect place to discover the city. We will come back for sure!

We are Cristiana, Rita, Gustavo and Miguel. We’re friends and family. We love travelling and we are passionate about Lisbon. Combining both, we decided to share our enthusiasm with travelers from around the world, welcoming you to our house in Bairro Alto. Most of all, we hope to make you feel at home. We also wish that our hometown Lisbon stays forever among your most pleasurable memories. Enjoy your stay!
