Long Term Accommodation in Lisbon
If you are moving to Lisbon, or planing to be here for few months, the best places to live in the city are certainly the ones a beat out of the down town but well connected to it.
The areas around the down town, specially the neighbourhoods of Alfama and Bairro Alto, are the ones where the most of social live happen. However they are as well the most loud and expressive in the city.
If you are planing to stay for a long period of time in Lisbon, you will probably have a better quality of live being located just few kilometres away from it.
Our recommendation is to get a place close to the green or blue lines of the metro, once that using those you can quickly get to the down town with no need for changing lines. This is specially important at night, when there are less trains running and you can have to wait quite awhile for the metro.
Keep in mind that, in general, flats in Portugal are very badly isolated; usually it is cold indoors during the winter.
What we recommend to overcome this, is to get a gas heater, and not an electrical one, once that those heat up the room quickly under a reactively cheap price.
