Our base for exploring Lisbon was The Lisbonaire, a stylish studio/apartment complex in the heart of the city. The street itself is quiet, but located just 100m to metro Restauradores, 250m to Rossio Train Station (especially relevant for those going to Sintra), and a short stroll from Bairro Alto and Baixa / Chiado neighborhoods – it doesn’t get much more convenient than this.

The 1960s building was rebuilt in 2011, now containing 19 studios and one-bedroom apartments, each featuring Lisbon-inspired artwork by Portuguese designers. Here are some snapshots of Studio A, about 30 sqm in size and equipped with fridge, microwave, oven, cooker, dish washer, washing machine, toaster, iron and ironing board, hairdryer, safe, free wifi, 32” LCD TV, iPod dock…just about everything you’d need. The one thing I didn’t quite like about this studio was that it doesn’t get much natural light, but we didn’t spend much time here during the day anyway.





For those traveling in bigger groups, the one-bedroom apartments can accommodate up to four people by transforming the living room into another bedroom. We saw this apartment was we were checking out, and I quite liked how bright the space is compared to our first-floor studio – next time, perhaps.



There are a few public spaces at The Lisbonaire available to guests. At the information point, there is a public computer and printer, city map, info about the city and events. There’s usually a front desk manager here during work hours if you need any information.


In the basement there is space to read, listen to music, play snooker, watch a movie or just lounge. There is also storage space here for those who want to leave the luggages before or after check-in.




The rooftop is a chill place to go on a sunny day. One interesting piece of info: the deck and furniture here were built using an innovative material that reused and recycled an estimated 421.000 plastic bags.


We were all in all very happy with our stay at The Lisbonaire, especially for its convenient location at the center of Lisbon. For those staying a few days in this city, consider The Lisbonaire as your base for exploring.
