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.
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.
