Sao Bento is less than 15 minutes walking distance from Cais do Sodré Train Station. The Metro there provides access to central Lisbon in 10 minutes. Lisbon International Airport is 8 km away.
If you walk 10 minutes you´re at "Bairro Alto", known as one of the most attractive and picturesque areas of the Lisbon’s city center. At night, this 17th century colorful district is transformed into the city's vibrant nightlife quarter. The main streets and narrow passageways are bustling with activity of dozens of excellent traditional restaurants, «fado singing houses», cafés, and a multitude of sleek clubs and bars that stay open until late. In recent years, «Bairro Alto» is also an alternative shopping destination, for those looking for trendy design shops, art galleries and bookshops.
Bairro Alto, one of the Lisbon hippest and coolest place.
There are several buses and trams, and subway, 10 minutes away, although one can easily walk to the main points of the city. Five minutes walking is the heart of the glamorous and cosmopolitan city can still be felt in the Chiado, a place where the "new" and "old" live in harmony. Characterized by casual-chic atmosphere, with streets full of shops, fine restaurants, beautiful cobblestone, beautiful churches and timeless cafes, Chiado makes any visitor feel real Lisbon.
Chiado is where Lisbon's history and urbanity meet. This tourist area of the capital begins at the Brasileira café, on Rua Garrett. Opened in 1905. It´s one of Lisbon's postcards. On the side walk café you will find the different urban tribes and a statue of poet Fernando Pessoa, who offers his lap for tourist photos.
Next to it, two churches remind the vanished towers of Santa Catarina Gate. The Church of Loreto, built in 1528 by Italians living in Lisbon, was partially destroyed by the 1755 earthquake, but later rebuilt and one of the places to visit on Chiado. The Church of Encarnação, inaugurated in 1708, was also hit in 1755 and rebuilt later. But Chiado has more than just two churches to (website hidden)ís de Camões square, which any Lisboner will call Largo Camões, is not just a passing place. Sit on the steps of the poet's monument and enjoy the bustle that Chiado has.
But do not leave Chiado without inquiring about the theatres. São Luiz Municipal Theatre was one of Lisbon's first cinemas. Today it is a municipal theatre with a rich and varied programming. Also glimpse the Teatro Trindade and the S. Carlos Opera House.
This is one of the city´s best shopping areas. You will find international brand shops (Hermès and Hugo Boss, for example) and great Portuguese designers like José António Tenente (Tv. Carmo, 8) StoryTailors (Cç. Do Ferragial, 8) or Atelier Alves/Gonçalves (Tv. Guilherme Cossul, 16).
It is not difficult to come across public figures, mainly artists. There are several art schools in the area, like the Fine Arts Faculty. Even if you are not an expert, venture into the Chiado Museum - National Museum of Contemporary Art (Rua Serpa Pinto, 4) besides well-cared exhibitions, it has a pleasant patio to have lunch or simply sip a coffee. There is also a big offer for meals: Café Royale, New Wok and Kaffee Hause are excellent choices.

Sehr schöne und geräumige Wohnung (Dachterassenwohnung).
Wunderschöne Aussicht und alles vorhanden.
Die Dusche ist ggfs. Nichts für Personen über 1,80m aber dennoch machbar.
Die vor der Reise gestellten Fragen an die Vermieter wurden alle schnell und zu unserer zufriedenheit beantwortet.
Buchen gerne die Wohnung bei einer weiteren Reise wieder.
We are 9 days in this studio. Everything was as described except for the noise. We found that this is not "normal" city noise more. Within an hour, flew about 500 feet above the house at least 15 aircraft to the airport, the beautiful bridge that we, if not the noise of the cars and the bridge deck would have been otherwise could enjoy. At night you can not sleep with the window open it. Too bad that is not pointed out this noise. So simply was not true value for money.
Wir waren 9 Tage in diesem Studio. Alles war so wie beschrieben bis auf den Lärm. Wir fanden, dass es sich um keinen "normaler" Großstadtlärm mehr handelt. Innerhalb einer Stunde flogen etwa 500 Meter über dem Haus mindestens 15 Flugzeuge zum Flughafen, die wunderschöne Brücke, die wir, wenn nicht der Lärm von den Autos und dem Brückenbelag gewesen wäre, ansonsten hätten genießen können. Nachts kann man nicht bei geöffnetem Fenster schlafen. Schade, dass nicht auf diesen Lärm hingewiesen wird. So stimmte einfach nicht das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.
The truth is that our stay there was very nice, the floor was like in the photos and when we arrived everything was very clean and tidy. The beds were very comfortable and the noise meter that some spoke there, but nothing obscures stay. Access to one of the three rooms (the ladder) is not suitable for people with dizziness, but otherwise all great. The complete list explained some questions we had about the city. I would go back tomorrow.
La verdad que nuestra estancia allí fue muy agradable, el piso era como en las fotos y cuando llegamos todo estaba muy limpio y en orden. Las camas eran muy comodas y el ruido del metro del que algunos hablaban, existe, pero para nada enturbia la estancia. El acceso a una de las tres habitaciones (la de la escalera) es no apta para gente con vertigo, pero por lo demás, todo genial. Ademas el anfitrion nos explicó algunas dudas que teniamos respecto a la ciudad. Volvería mañana mismo.
The book and the process on arrival was smooth and very friendly. Bruno replied to all questions patiently and helped with everything. The apartment is small, but perfectly adequate for two people. The rooftop terrace offers a magnificent view. It was everything available and clean. The only minus point we can begin, was the cookware. For the first there was not much there and not necessarily clean. We are therefore always went to eat, although we would have loved to eat good times on our roof terrace at night.
Die Buchung und der Ablauf bei Ankunft verlief reibungslos und sehr freundlich. Bruno hat auf alle Fragen geduldig geantwortet und war bei allem behilflich. Die Wohnung ist zwar klein, aber vollkommen ausreichend für zwei Personen. Von der Dachterrasse hat man einen herrlichen Blick. Es war alles vorhanden und sauber. Den einzigen Minuspunkt den wir ansetzen können, war das Kochgeschirr. Zum ersten war nicht viel da und nicht unbedingt sauber. Wir sind deshalb immer zum Essen gegangen, obwohl wir auch gerne mal schön auf unserer Dachterrasse zu Abend gegessen hätten.
We were treated well. Location excellent near tram 28. A very nice Cape Verde restaurant in the neighborhood. The apartment is a bit small for two people but excellent for one person. The equipment is OK with stove, microwave and washing machine.

Vi blev väl bemötta. Läget utmärkt nära spårvagn 28. En mycket trevlig Kap Verde-restaurang i grannskapet. Lägenheten lite trång för två personer men utmärkt för en person. Utrustningen OK med spis, microvågsugn och tvättmaskin.
