Hello, my name is Francisco Cansado Carvalho and I welcome you to THEHOUSE, your Bed & Breakfast/Guesthouse in Lisboa. If you are looking for a place where you will feel at home, this is the place for you!
With a stunning view over both Lisboa and the river, THEHOUSE is located in Estrela/Lapa, two minutes away from Basílica da Estrela and the world famous 28 eléctrico. This very central location makes it perfect for tourism: for those who like to walk, there are multiple points of interest nearby; for those who don't, taxis, buses and subway, besides the eléctrico, can be found nearby. Dozens of restaurants for every taste, including fado houses, also abound nearby.
THEHOUSE was built by my grandfather when he was just 32 years old to house his family of eight. A regular building in an anonymous street, nothing gives away the fact that on top there is a 10-bedroom, 640sqm, three-storey house with one of the most stunning views over Lisboa you will find anywhere. Four generations of my family lived here for almost 50 years. Now it is open to anyone who wishes to experience Lisboa.
One last word just to say this: I have many times felt somewhat disappointed when arriving in various hotels across the world. After seeing the website's pictures, the reality was frequently not as good. Rest assured: this will not happen to you in THEHOUSE. You have my word on that.
See you soon,
Francisco Cansado Carvalho
