The room has double-glass windows, a fan or a heater. It also has a folding table and a chair, which you can use to work on your laptop or eat a meal in your room. When you don’t need it, you can just fold it and put it away so it won’t take space in the room.

About the Area
If we translate the name of this neighbourhood it literally means Royal Prince. With restaurants, bars, stores, and art galleries everywhere, this neighbourhood is clearly attempting a rise to the throne. Hang in the coolest bars, shop at the dopest stores or just go for a bite. It’s the neighbourhood with the most alternative and hip places, colourful fun nights and the hottest restaurants.
The Botanical Garden, right next to the Museum of Natural History and Science, also worth a visit, has a particularly impressive collection of tropical plants from Asia, the Americas, and Oceania. Stroll its paths to admire the semi-tropical and tropical flora or settle on a bench to enjoy the feeling of being surrounded by nature in the middle of a city.
If you’re into shopping, here you will find local concept stores like Entre Tanto, 21pr and Embaixada: a shopping centre and concept store occupying a well-restored Moorish-style building, Embaixada is that rare gem of a shopping mall, architecturally entertaining enough to attract visitors with little interest in shopping itself. Comb through to admire the building or peruse the lovely goods. Embaixada prides itself on showcasing Portuguese brands that haven’t yet caught on with an international following.

Included in the stay
- Complimentary Light Breakfast

- It is crucial to maintain silence during the morning and at night, both inside the apartment and in the stairs of the building.
- If you plan to party every night, drink/smoke in the room, and arrive late in the night without being considerate with the noise, this is not the right place for you – it’s an old building in a quiet residential area, with mostly older neighbours, so any behaviour that disturbs them won’t be tolerated.
- There is one set of keys per room, so please be responsible with it and coordinate your return with your friends/partner. Please do not in any case ring the bell during the night (after 10pm) asking to open the door, and especially don’t ring any neighbours. In case of emergencies only, you can call me on the phone.
Smoking is not allowed.
