About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

(Alojamento Local 8588/AL)

Bright, daylight filled, 5th floor apartment is located on Rua Nova do Almada, in CHIADO, has a privilege location in the heart of the cultural and historical part of the city.

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 as well as the theatre D. Maria II in Rossio.

Close to shops, restaurants, cafes, banks, cash machines, public transportations (bus, trains, 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 'fados' sung 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 king size bed (180 x 200 cm) and 2 futon beds (perfect for children), living room with dining and sitting areas with a sofa bed (170 x 200 cm), one full bathroom and a second small bathroom (no shower) and fully equipped kitchen. The apartment has air-conditioning and heating in all the rooms. This privileged location offers easy access by foot to the subway (Chiado/Baixa station – 40 m).

Please note that the arrivals after 20h00 have a late arrival fee of 35 euros and after 24h00 the extra fee is 50 euros.

In case you wish to avoid this fee we can provide the codes for the self check-in and meet you in the next day.

Perfect location! Perfect experience!

  • 5 of 5

First time to Lisbon and our stay was great. The apartment worked well for us. I’m used to a softer mattress but my girlfriend liked it so that she s a personal preference. The check-in with Silvia was great as she showed us various area to see and shop on the map. Most people choose to use the trolley but we found a cab to the castle was fast and inexpensive ~4€. We will be back.

What a beautiful property - the water and the castle from your windows in the heart of the commerce and great restaurants of old Lisbon. We had forgotten how beautiful Lisbon was. The last time we visited it was rainy and dark. This time there was only sun and the apartment is perfectly placed to walk and see everything. Very professionally managed, they seem to have thought of everything.

We'll be back.

Fantastic apartment, fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location, view, and apartment

Paulo and Sylvia have a lovely well-organized and attractive apartment. It was very spacious and well appointed.

The view of the harbor and the neighborhood was fantastic. The seven floor to ceiling windows let in air and light in addition to revealing the view. Our first evening we listened to Fado music from the balcony. What a welcome.!

Paulo answered our questions before the trip immediately and arranged limo/driver services for us for several trips.

Sylvia was very helpful in assisting with a medical problem and immediately responded when we asked for a couple of small additional items for the kitchen.

We recommended this apartment with no reservations.

Spacious, charming apartment, fabulous location, wonderful service from owners, and great views.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is even more spacious than appears in the photos. Corner location makes it more special because there are 8 sets of balcony doors, some with wonderful views. Everything you could need was provided, graciously by the managers, and any issues were promptly responded to. Location is superb, in the main shopping street, and the metro is literally steps away. Fine dining restaurants are all walkable. We stay in apartments all over Europe and other places abroad, and we will be hard pressed to find another of this caliber. Thank you!
