Apartment 5A

This city center modern apartment is set in a recently rebuilt building in old historic Lisbon.

This bright, daylight filled, 5th floor apartment is located on Rua Garrett, one of the most important streets of historic Lisbon, has a privilege situation in the heart of the cultural and historical part of the city (Chiado).

Very close to several museums, operas, theaters and churches. A few minutes walk takes you to the Rossio, in the Baixa, and to the Elevador da Lavra. The other direction, you will reach the Praça do Comércio, which is located in the center of the Portuguese old empire near the river Tejo (Tagus). To go to Sintra you must take the train at Rossio. To go to Óbidos you have Entre-Campos train station or Campo-Grande bus station, which is just a short subway trip from Chiado.

Chiado is considered the most beautiful area of historical Lisbon. It was a place of residence of the Portuguese royalty and of the political and cultural elites. Nearby is the theater S. Luis and the opera D. Carlos with the theater D. Maria II also one step away.

Close to shops, restaurants, cafes, banks, cash machine, public transportations (train, subway and electric trams) and 24 hour taxi stands, etc.

A little further up on the left is Camões Square (Praça de Camões), next to Bairro Alto, picturesque but raffish; part of Lisbon's nightlife seems to be concentrated in this quarter, which was frequented to hear the sentimental 'fado' songs in certain restaurants and cafés. Chiado and Bairro Alto are 'the' meeting point for locals and tourists, with elegant hotels, old cafés, and the best international fashion shops nearby.

Lisbon Sightseeing - It operates both open-top bus tours and trams. Bus trips are the 'Circuito Tejo', which goes out to Belém as well as other parts of the city, or the (Expresso Oriente' which visits the Parque das Nações. The tram does the 'Circuito das Colinas' (Hill Circuit) which embraces the 28 route through Graça, Alfama, Chiado, Bairro Alto, Estrela and Campo de Ourique.

Trams also operate a Circuito dos Descobrimentos to Belém.

Accommodation comprises one bedroom with a queen size bed, a second room with 2 single beds, living room with dining and sitting areas, two full bathrooms and fully equipped kitchen. The apartment has air-conditioning and central heating in all the rooms. This privileged location offers easy access by foot to the subway (Chiado/Baixa station – 50 m).

Please note that a traditional Portuguese Breakfast is available for an extra charge of EUR 18 for 2 persons, available upon request.

Perfect location, perfect view

  • 5 of 5

Two of us stayed here for a week in Lisbon. The apartment was a great place from which to explore this beautiful and charming city. The location could not be better for site seeing. There are many places to explore within walking distance or are easily accessible via the nearby and easy to use public transportation. Time spent in the apartment is equally pleasurable. Its unsurpassed views of the castle (day and night), Se, the river Tejo and the surrounding neighborhoods are complimented by the sounds and music rising from the street below. Luis was friendly, helpful, and prompt - there as soon as we arrived to let us in and help us get settled. The airport shuttle he arranged for us was worth the 8 euro per person. The apartment itself is comfortable with many amenities. We should mention that the bathrooms are not as accommodating as one might hope for (warm rather than hot water, small shower, bathtub jets shown in photos not working, dim lighting), and the apartment entry doorknob is unnecessarily difficult to open, and impossible if you are left handed. These are minor details and we would readily stay here again.

Comfort, Service, Location Apartment 5A was Great

  • 5 of 5

5A was Great but….you need more than 2 nights, we regret not staying longer. As a couple we rented apartment 5A 2 bedroom top floor on Rua Garette. We must say the service by Chiado Apartments was right on, from the private car that they arranged for us from the airport to the door was first-class. The location, can’t be better, for city-break vacation. Nightly entertainment a few feet away, right at the café where you can people watch and absorb the culture of Lisbon. The apartment itself, well…… Firstly, Beds were very comfortable, we had an excellent night’s sleep,by closing the blackout shutters, the first bathroom is huge and the second a little smaller but sufficient. The living room is very spacious with comfortable furniture. The apartment is encompassed by tall windows and unsurpassed views of the Ocean, and waterfront. The kitchen is complete for a city kitchen, who wants to cook when just at your doorstep are serval eating options like Bernard Café, where we ate all our meals. Internet was excellent, the apartment was clean and the elevator was a plus after a day of shopping. Most of all the staff was excellent at the start of the reservation to the service afterwards. We forgot some items at the apartment and the staff kindly mailed us our belongings, we thank them so much for all. We highly recommend staying at 5A on Rua Garette for 2 to 4 people. Thank you Luis for the great restaurant tips on Steak Houses. Z & L

Marvelous apartment with stunning vieuw

  • 5 of 5

We, 4 persons, had an excellent stay for 3 nights, The apartment is in everything splendid. With an big bonus for the vieuw from any side. With many space and luxury. And the beds are also very comfortable. With an full sized kitchen to cook, but we used it only for breakfast. The location could not be better. Also is the naberhood very safe to walk during the whole day. And for us shopoholics the whole area is like dreamland (shop till you drop). Very good service (including an welcome with wine) from the staff in all ways. I could ask everything by mail and got quickly answer. This was the second time visiting Lisbon and the nest year i will come back (2 persons) in may or june. I had made earlier recommendations at my work and to family/friends. And will go further giving advise to take Chiado apartments Rua Garrett. An tip: restaurant Carmo and the bakery Praca Camoes + Bicecletour with Baja Bikes.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It is ideally located - close to the trams, buses, train station, lots of sightseeing, shopping!! The apartment was well furnished, clean and we had a very warm welcome by Paulo's team. Paulo was also very responsive to all our questions prior to our visit.

You will need a map and can walk to a lot of places in Alfama and Chiado. Ask the person welcoming you at the apartment for a good map and general directions to the grocery store, tram stations, train stations, ride back to the airport etc.. We had done some research on the internet prior to our trip to note down all the sightseeing places we wanted to see. From the airport, we recommend that you walk up the stairs after you claim your baggage and go to the departures lounge and grab a taxi, it is much cheaper this way. You can buy a zapper card from the Chiado Baixa metro station, you will need one card per person and can load 5 euros to begin with. This card can be used on all trams and buses. We used tram 28 to get to Alfama, tram 15 to get to Belem. To go to Sintra, you need to get to the Roxio train station nearby and buy tickets.

We really enjoyed the street acts/music in and around the apartment area, the place is very lively and friday/sat nights can be very noisy. But the apartment has awesome sound proof doors for when you want to cut out the street noise and get some rest. We highly recommend the icecream place - Amareno. There is plenty to see in Lisboa, so enjoy your stay!! Thanks to Paulo and team for a fantastic experience in Lisboa, we hope to be back sometime soon!
