Apartment 4B

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

4th floor apartment with balcony all around, 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 as well as the theater D. Maria II just one step away in Rossio.

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 '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 queen size bed, living room with dining and sitting areas, one full bathroom and fully equipped kitchenette. 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 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.

Why Paulo chose Baixa

Located in the best and more 'chic' area in the city centre. The major Lisbon's landmarks are at the door step.

Location and good value.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. Metro station just up the hill, down the hill and to the left is the Rossio train station. Lots of cafe shops and stores everywhere. Easy walk to Alfama district. Owners arranged airport pickup and delivery. Very helpful and responded to questions promptly. We purchased the Lisbon Card for ease with using train, buses, metro. Also provided free entry to some sites or discounts to others. Nice and quiet too.

Conveniently located

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is situated in Chiado’s shopping area, close to metro and if you enjoy walking, many nearby sights and neighborhoods. Recommend the GREEN Viva viagem card—I got the white card, a mistake- there are no refunds. Sintra is well worth the trip, get their bus pass so you can hop on and hop off the buses that take you to the various sights. Nothing there is an easy walk. Our host Silvia met us on Christmas Eve, and was exceptional in her many tips and easy to reach when I had an important question come up, of all times on Christmas Day in the evening (the tankless water heater needed to be reset). Thank you Silvia! For a newer mattress, I must admit discomfort with a spring. A topper would be a welcome solution. All other features were top notch.

Perfect location in Lisbon!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay with the Chiado Apartments. All of the responses and interaction with the staff has been immediate and first rate. The location

on Rua Garret can't be beat. There's

noting like being in the center of the city in the most convenient location possible. The friendliness of the Portuguese people, the terrific weather, food, wine and tremendous value throughout makes Portugal the number one destination in the world.

Wonderful Place

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Located in a very busy area of the Chiado, the double-paned windows kept out all the noise – even on a busy Friday night. Our room faced the side street and the Largo do Carmo with restaurants, a grocery store, and the remains of the Carmo Convent was a couple of blocks up the street. The metro (walking through it is an easy way to get from the Chiado to the Baixa) is close by - across from Cafe a Brasileira. The apartment was well equipped with stove, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, hot water maker, coffee pot, dishes, pots, pans, etc. There was a welcoming bottle of vinho verde in the fridge and cups with tea and instant coffee set out for our use. We had a balcony which was an added bonus. Paulo, Silvia, and Mafalda were very helpful throughout, especially with arranging travel to/from the airport. This apartment would be a great place to stay for a month or more – if only we were fortunate to have that opportunity!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Chiado apartment offered us the perfect location to see the sights of Lisboa, within walking distance to everything. The apartment was very clean, quiet, comfortable and well equipped; starting in the kitchen were we found everything one would want, to the bedroom which was very spacious and had plenty of storage, to the bathroom which was very functional.

Starting with the booking process, to the check in/out, and every time we had a request during our stay, the staff were very helpful. We chose the option to be picked up and dropped off at the airport, and we could not be happier for choosing this service; even with almost an hour delay on our arrival the driver waited for us and he was very pleasant to ride with.

If the opportunity will arise in the future to go back to Lisboa we will definitely choose to stay at Chiado Apartments.
