Stay: Baixa House

Lisbon, Portugal
07.29.2011 | by: Alexandria

Located smack in the center of downtown Lisbon, Baixa House is an 18th-century building that has just been converted into 12 vacation apartments. The kicker is the way that each space has been refurbished—sensitively, beautifully and not over-polished. Those wide-plank floors have been left perfectly intact, ditto the garret-like charm of the top-floor units with slanting ceilings, and balconies in every unit mean that participating in the ultimate European pastime—watching life go by—is game on. Kitchens and baths have been modernized with marble counter tops and showers, and top-notch fixtures and appliances. The true charm, however, is found in the living areas and bedrooms. Designers have mastered a sense of under-decorated style with details that make the apartments feel like you’ve been handed the keys to a friend’s home. Books, art and colorful accent walls are all balanced by white-white walls and understated new and vintage furnishings. The service is also spot-on: Units are cleaned everyday and replenished with breakfast supplies daily. And maybe our favorite, perfectly un-preachy detail of all: TVs are available in all units, but only on request. Don’t ask and you won’t receive!

Most units sleep up to four or six people. One unit, the top-floor Ultramar, sleeps up to nine. Located in the middle of downtown Lisbon, the apartment is a 5-minute walk to the Praça do Comercio, the Figueira and the Rossio, a bus and tram hub with many shops and cafes. Units start at $140 a night with a minimum two-night stay. Rent it here.
