Don't be fooled by the cracked plaster and peeling paint on the exterior of this holiday apartment we rented in Lisbon. The one-bedroom unit in the Baixa district was spotlessly clean, large and comfortable, affordably priced, and an ideal location for our family of four. My teenagers loved that there was a little market a block away where they could walk to in the morning for fresh rolls or in the late afternoon for a soda.

Marisa, the young owner of the apartment, is extremely kind and helpful and has excellent English language skills. She takes special care to show you how everything works and where everything is, and provides city maps and books and suggestions. On our last day, when we departed the residence, Marisa called a taxi and waited with us so she could talk to the driver for us.
The main living area of the apartment is lovely and well-lit by two sets of French doors which open to small balconies. The sofa you see here is a futon, which my son slept on:
My daughter slept on a second futon in the hall outside the master bedroom:
The master bedroom is spacious and the bed is comfortable:
The small kitchen had everything we needed to prepare light meals:
My husband was happy that the air conditioning worked very well and I was delighted we had a washing machine right in the apartment:
The Baixa district is a superb location to stay in downtown Lisbon. This apartment is just a short walk to Rossio Square where you'll find the Rossio train station, cafés, shopping, markets and street performers.
