Diva 1 is a brand new, beautifully finished, tastefully decorated, and very well equipped apartment in the town center of Lisbon (Baixa). The bedrooms are quite large and comfortable (can easily accommodate 8 people). The bathrooms are wonderfully appointed. The kitchen is ultra-modern and contains all the appliances, utensils, features, and functionality that you could ever need. The living room is nicely furnished and is equipped with a large flat screen TV with extensive satellite service. The whole apartment is brightly bathed in sunlight!
It is conveniently located to all major tourist sites which are easily reachable on foot. All forms of public transit are closely accessible. Whether it's the 28 Tram (don't miss taking a ride through various beautiful neighborhoods of the city), the Metro, other trams, buses, trains, or even a ferry to get to the beaches, .... all are a short walk away..... the location of Diva 1 cannot be beat!
There are a myriad of great restaurants, cafes, shops, supermarkets, internet cafes, etc.... all within a few minutes walk!! We had no problem finding anything we needed... all very close by!!
Martin was great to deal with regarding this rental. His timely, attentive, thorough, and very personal approach made me feel very comfortable in renting this flat. I have stayed in many short-term rentals over the years.... Diva 1 is one of the best!! I would highly recommend this flat!!
We celebrated two high school graduations with a cousins trip in Lisbon. The Diva 1 apartment was centrally located and provided enough space for four of us to spread out. Everywhere is walkable and the trains and ferries are just a short distance. The washer and dryer really came in handy. Liz was very friendly and took the time to show us the key areas and grocery store on the map. The apt is a bit noisy as you can hear the people above you but the windows keep out a lot of the street noise.
My group of five stayed in the Diva 1 apartment in the Baixa district on September 2015.
The apartment itself is decorated nicely with good sized spaces. There are two full bathrooms, and three bedrooms with enough beds to accommodate my group comfortably. The kitchen was stocked with the essentials for home cooking. There was ample space for dining and an air conditioned living room with wonderful balconies throughout. The apartment building was secure and could only be accessed with a key. There were no issues with other tenants while we were there.
The location is a definite winner. Located just a couple of blocks from Praça da Figueira a beautiful square in the center of Lisbon with access to public transportation. A+++ There is also a nice café called A Outra Face de Lua on the ground floor of the apartment building which turns out to be a vintage shop as well. While it’s not a foodie destination, it was nice to have a place to get a quick coffee and snack. I would definitely try the sardines with grilled red onions on baguette – SO, so good.
Martin and Andre are great hosts. They were both easy to communicate with and responsive. Upon arrival, Andre took the time to tell us about the different districts of Lisbon and provided suggestions for the sights and experiences that could be had. Andre was also very good about giving safety and transportation tips based on the areas we planned on visiting. We also had a little mishap with the hot water kettle. Martin was very understanding and it was a smooth transaction to cover the cost to replace the item. Martin & Andre scored again with a welcome bottle of wine for our group.
I recommend the Diva 1 apartment with its great location, access to public transportation, good spaces, and great hosts. I would definitely recommend this apartment to my family and friends.
Our family (4 adults, 1 toddler and 1 infant) enjoyed our stay at this beautifully decorated flat in Portugal. The building has an elevator which helps a lot when you have strollers and luggages.
Perfect location. A short taxi from the airport. Martin met us right away, even tho we were much earlier than planned. The flat is super clean, greatly appointed, and very spacious. It is a very short walk from the main square of old town and the waterfront as well. Great for a short or long stay. Highly recommended.
Our family and one boyfriend (7 in total and our kids are all in their 20s) were on a 8 day vacation in Portugal. Lisbon was the first stop. We selected this rental from many sites. We had no regrets in doing so. From the time we first connected with Martin, to our arrival, his introduction to the apartment and the area, our when we left, everything went as planned. Martin was very helpful. The apartments location, layout, amenities and quality was as advertised. We would highly recommend this apartment and Martin. We will all fondly remember our time in Lisbon.
In the old city center of Lisbon, near the castle and the chamber of the city, you can find a magnific place surrounded by the city river 'Tejo' and one of the most beautiful cities that the Atlantic Coast can offer you, Lisbon. A city full of history and epic places to visit, since the time of the Portuguese Discoveries, it is rich in culture and life. Known as the city of the seven hills, you can lost yourself in the typical quarters of Lisbon and eat really good fish in the fantastic Fish-Restaurants in Restauradores square. But, if you want you can also go and take advantage of the good beaches of the Lisbon Coast. Near the building you can find many little cafes and restaurants where you can rest and taste the excellent portuguese food and sweets.Adress: Baixa de Lisboa
