Welcome to our family and apartment Saldanha, where you can enjoy a comfortable stay with quick access to the city's historic district, just a few minutes from the iconic Praça do Marquês de Pombal and Avenida da Liberdade.
Our apartment is located in one of the most notable areas of Lisbon city, very central and with great ease of access and public transport as well as excellent services and trade - the Saldanha neighborhood. The neighborhood is known for the quality of its homes and the architecture of its buildings a charming mix secular buildings and modern construction.
This is a safe area, with several office buildings, banks, shops, cinemas, hotels, restaurants and so on.
The Saldanha neighborhood is at the heart of Lisbon, with several Metro exits and parking lots, only a short distance and a few minutes away from the four corners of town. It's an area in wich the charm of older days goes hand by hand with the modernity and necessities of urban life.
It's the ideal location for your stay in Lisbon, short or long term stay. Here you will experience a bustling Lisbon office scene, packed with young consultants, lawyers and economists who work here; you will have top brand shopping sensations and quick meals. On the other hand, once the sun sets you will experience a dramatic change as this busy area by day becomes a quiet residential area by night.
From here you can easily get to the more bohemian and trendy areas of Lisbon, wich are the Chiado and Bairro Alto neighborhoods such as Alfama, Mouraria, São Jorge Castle and Graça, or the cultural area of Lisbon wich boasts most of its Museums. Our apartment is fantastic, super spacious, simply decorated but charming and rooms with a good area. 4th floor with no elevator.
The location is perfect. With easy access points to A2 - A5 if you have a car to visit some of the outtlying towns such as Sintra, Cascais and so on. Grocery store, Pingo Doce is about 3 blocks away.
Also you have Metro Entrecampos conecting with trains and Metro Sete Rios with Bus "Rede Expressos" to Algarve, Alentejo or Porto and other portuguese cities as well.
The national rail network In Portugal is operated by CP – Caminhos de Ferro Portugueses. Their website is at and you can see most of the site in English by clicking on the little 'flag' at the top of the page. There is a good map of the Portuguese rail network at
NB Low cost and some other flights may depart from Lisbon Airport Terminal 2. This has NO direct public transport links except a free shuttle bus from outside terminal 1, near the metro and bus stops. Allow at least 15 extra minutes if your flight leaves from terminal 2.
To travel from Lisbon Airport to the centre of the city, it may be quicker and will certainly be cheaper to take the metro, as it is connected to the red line, taking you to Saldanha station (financial center of Lisbon) in just 15 minutes and the city centre (a change of line is needed) in about 25 minutes. You can connect to all of the three other metro lines fron the red line, getting you just about anywhere in the city. You can buy the one-way ticket for 1.40 € or the daily pass (which allows you to use the metro, bus, trams and some trains) for 6€. Both types of tickets are issued on rechargeable green viva viagem cards so don't throw them away. Metro trains run every few minutes from 0600hrs to 0100hrs daily.
