Marquis Cross blends the new and the traditional very well. The host has preserved parts of the original gaiola Pombalina (the wooden framework around which these buildings were constructed), but much of the rest of the flat is far more modern. The location on Rua Augusta is going to be divisive – you can’t get more central, but every tourist and street performer has also worked that out and spend the day milling up and down. Inside, however, it’s surprisingly quiet, at least compared to other flats in the area.
Home truths: *Rua Augusta outside is one of the most trafficked streets in Lisbon, so expect there to be some noise coming into the flat
*The bedroom faces a patio which has the exhausts of other ventilation systems – it's not especially noisy, but worth knowing about
*The shower is only 190cm high
