I happen to live near Lisbon, but I was looking for a place to host some friends visiting Portugal for a week that would be much closer to the city center as well as central to some of the towns we would be visiting like Cascais and Sintra. Belém was the ideal location! I choose the apartment because it looked newly renovated, clean, and tastefully furnished from the pictures. It turned out to be all that and more. One does have to go up 2 flights of stairs, which didn't bother us a bit, and one is greeted by a very cozy and clean apartment with new kitchen appliances and everything one would need for a small group of travelers. We did have a car, and parking in front of the building was never a problem. Madelena was an absolute joy to meet, and super helpful in making sure our stay was perfect... Obrigado por tudo, Madalena!!
Downtown Lisbon is about 10min by tram/eléctrico (15E) ...and there is also a bus stops right around the corner from the apartment. Both Sintra and Cascais are about 25 min away by car. (unless you take the longer, scenic coastal road) Finally, the small town of Belém itself is beautiful with so much to see and do... it was less than a 7min walk down the hill to the town center. The town is a perfect home base to visit sites in and around Lisbon in my opinion, and I would highly recommend this very clean Belém apartment with views of the Tejo river!
