The apartment is nice and well located. I would strongly recommend if they cared about their clients a bit more. When we arrived everything out some water leakage on the HVAC was ok. After half an hour we started to notice some strange smell.
Some hours later the smell was terrible. The toilet was not correctly sealed and the smell that came out of the pipes was terrible. Can you imagine what was going to the toilet at night with such smell? I know this can happen, but it is not acceptable to let clients come in without having it solved. You just have to go to the apartment to smell it. I do not think the money we paid was wort it, and we only got an "I am sorry, I will tell to the owner". So, if it is solved and they cared more for clients I would definitively recommend it. Unfortunately with what happened, I do not.

Perfect place in Lisboa

We enjoyed our stay so much we will definitely come back!
Everything is well organised and we experienced a warm welcome and plenty of tips for restaurants, attractions and transport.
The apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Lisbon and everything you need for a short or midterm stay is there.
Especially liked the terrace for a coffee and some pastéis in the afternoon!
Excellent apartment in an even better location!

My husband and I (late 20s) stayed 4 nights in this apartment in March 2014. The apartment was exactly what we wanted - very central so everywhere was in walking distance (and literally on the doorstep of the metro to get to and from the airport). The kitchen is tiny and I imagine it would be difficult to cook in it but it was fine for making snacks. Bathroom did have a bit of a smell but we just kept door shut and it was fine. Roof terrace is lovely in the sunshine and large enough for 2 people to lie down. The lounge and dining room were fine - table seats 4 and TV had many many channels. 2 bedrooms lovely and bright. Apartment would be comfortable for 4 people.
The area seemed very safe and it was quiet at night too (despite being so central). Great restaurants on the doorstep and within 10 minutes in Chiado.
Booking process easy and got a great induction with lots of info on lisbon and all our questions answered. Check out very easy too.
All in all a great apartment - would recommend thoroughly.

Another home away from home!
Left on 01/18/2014 for a stay in December 2013 | Michael
I am a teacher and when I travel, I love living like a local. The apartment is located on the top floor of a great building, in a quiet neighborhood. The metro is just steps away which made traveling around this beautiful city so much easier. Great restaurants and shops nearby! Great walking city with lots of hills and steps...but there are some ways around them.
Went to the market everyday which helped me learn a little more Portuguese. The people were polite and courteous! Filipe met us at the apartment to check us in and Goncalo came by to check us out the night before we left, cause it was an early flight. I would definitely stay here again since I know my way around the area. I can't wait to return!
Wonderful place in the heart of the city

The apartement is really lovely - especially the little roof terrace, which we used every day for our outdoor-breakfast - and perfectly located in the heart of the city. In spite of the central location it is a quiet place. Highly recommended!
central chiado appartment
Left on 10/02/2013 for a stay in September 2013 | Lucas
The good things about the appartment is that is centrally located in a building with elevator. It is quiet and tastefull. It was nice to have a (very small) terrace outside, but as temperatures were very high it would have been nice if there had been a parasol/umbrella. We found it a little bit too small for 4 adults and there needed to be some maintenance done. The airco leaked on photographs on the wall, the doorhandles had had their best time, towel racks in the bathroom were broken etcetera. The kitchen is not practical due to the size and sloping wall, although it comes with washer/dryer and dish washer. All in all: a 7 out of 10.
Excellent location, wonderful stay.

This apartment is perfectly situated in the Biaxa neighborhood. Very close to the metro station and waterfront. Fatima met us at the apartment and introduced us to the area. When we realized the TV was not working she notified a colleague and they came back within an hour to make the necessary adjustments. The apartment is clean and the beds/bedding is comfortable. Something to note, the second bedroom does not have an air conditioning. There are air conditioners in the main bedroom and the livingroom (which could serve the second bedroom if necessary). We enjoyed the open windows instead. The rooftop deck was lovely. We would definately come back and stay here in the future!
Fantastic Location and Cosy, Sunny Roof Terrace
Left on 09/05/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Trish
Fantastic location and the building has a lift should you require it. We stayed for 5 days and were out on the terrace whenever we were at the apartment. Sunny from morning until evening and so nice to relax with breakfast/and or glass of wine.
Location is unbelievable with an easy walk to everywhere. The Metro is less than 30 secs walk too.
Only down side is that the sewage was rather bad from the toilet pipes but we just closed the door and it didn't bother us.
Would really recommend staying here if you are a couple, young family or just a bunch of friends getting away.
I celebrated my Bday here and it was fantastic
Great apartment, Great location
Left on 08/26/2013 for a stay in August 2013 | Heather
We are a family of four (kids ages 10 and 7), and this apartment was perfect for us. The apartment was well thought-out, immaculate, and had everything we needed for our 4 night stay. The little deck is a great bonus - we had breakfast outside each morning among the rooftops of Lisbon. The location is fantastic - restaurants, shops, sight-seeing all outside the door. There is a beautiful Metro stop just up the street for anything you can't reach on foot. The staff at Heart & Soul Lisbon are fantastic! They made sure we had any information we wanted about the city and places to see. Check-in and check-out were easy.

A great apartment located in the Chiado neighborhood--convenient to public transport as well as walking to other neighborhoods. Air conditioned and well maintained elevator bldg.--It's a top floor with great light.
Kitchen is tiny but serviceable--we weren't cooking.
Well managed--Sandra our hostess was terrific in providing tips to get around the city.
Note: you have to pay cash up front.
The spot to be!

We really enjoyed our stay at Chiado-Crucifixo in Lisbon. The location was amazing. It was close to all the happenings and to the train/metro station. The apartment was absolutely beautiful - I could stay there for the rest of my life. The cute balcony with its amazing view was just perfect. The binder that was put together for us was very helpful.
The only issues that I can think of: the buzzer didn't work, and the bathroom smelled really bad (like sewage). I'm sure those are things that could be fixed, before we make another visit next year.
Thank you for making our trip super special.

Comfortable apartment in an ideal location
Left on 07/03/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | G and J
From the beginning of our booking experience, Fatima and the team handling the Chiado-Crucifixo 1 made our plans very easy. I was traveling with my husband and teenage daughter, and they were wonderful in describing the apartment to us to ensure it was the right fit. They also provided important information to us upon arrival so we knew the best way to arrive from the airport even including the best method of procuring the taxi. We were met by Goncalo and were disappointed to learn that the lift was not working - and this apartment is on the 5th floor - and if you have not traveled to Europe - their staircases are certainly more challenging than american stairs. But quite honestly, once you get into the streets of Lisbon, the 5 story walk-up is a piece of cake considering the amount of walking and climbing you will do if you really take in what the city has to offer. I'm afraid the lift was not repaired by the end of our 5-day stay, but by then we figured we were all in better shape! The apartment and the private terrace were well worth the climb. The building itself was very quiet and we enjoyed sitting on the terrace every night listening to the sounds of a lively city.
The neighborhood is bustling with the perfect bakery for coffee and pastries just steps outside the door. All of the best restaurants are within walking distance. The Biaxa-Chiado metro is literally outside the door making our commutes extremely simple and convenient no matter the destination. Depending what you want to do, you can walk out the door and continue walking and exploring in any direction and not be disappointed, or hop on the Metro and be anywhere in no time at all. In fact, we took the Metro back to the airport which was way cheaper than a taxi and no trouble at all.
The apartment was charming, roomy and clean. We had everything we needed to be comfortable and relax during our stay. Internet access was excellent. I would gladly recommend this place.

Drei wunderschöne Tage in Lissabon
Left on 05/17/2013 for a stay in May 2013 | Peter Heuer
Es ist eine sehr schön eingerichtete Wohnung, sehr sauber und mit allem ausgestattet was den aufenthalt angenehm macht.Die Lage in der altstadt mit direkter anbindung an die Metro ist sensationell. Nach erlebnissreichen Tagen in Lissabon, konnten wir die Tage in der Wohnung aund auf der kleinen Terasse ausklingen lassen. Ein wenig störend war der unangenehme Geruch aus dem abfluss der Dusche.Durch Verschliessen mit dem Gummistopfen ging es dann. Wir haben das beim auschecken bemängelt und hoffen, das es geändert wird. Großes Lob an die Betreuung durch das Team von Heart and Soul. Wir kommen gerne wieder und könne die Wohnung wirklich weiterempfehlen.

It was a lovely place. Welcome and introduction to the apartment was done in a very professional and friendly way by our host Goncalo. Everything was fantastic. Only small thing which needs to be adapted is the smell in the bathroom.

El apartamento es tal y como se ve en las fotos. La localización es perfecta, a tan solo unos metros de la parada de metro Chiado. Tuvimos mala suerte con el tiempo así que no pudimos disfrutar de la preciosa terraza, pero de eso no podemos culpar a Heart & Soul ;-) Su atención ha sido perfecta en todo momento: antes y durante nuestra estancia. Lo único reseñable es que el baño es muy pequeño, mínimo en espacio aunque con el equipamiento completo. Recomendamos este apartamento a todos aquellos que deseen disfrutar de Lisboa. Todo lo que pueda interesar a un visitante está muy cerca y para aquellas cosas un poco más alejadas hay una estupenda red de transporte.

A delightful apartment

We stayed 3 nights in this apartment and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The apartment is delightful and we especially loved the little terrace in the sunshine. The apartment is very well equipped with everything one could want and very comfortable, and in an excellent location for seeing the sights of Lisbon. Check in was easy as Fatima was there to meet us and show us everything in the apartment and to help with suggestions of what to do, where to eat etc.
And we only banged our heads a couple of times on the sloping ceilings!
We will be back in Lison again I'm sure as we love the city, and would definitely pick this apartment again.
Great apartment and well situated

The apartment in Baixa is perfect for a stay in Lisbon: It is very close to the Metro, so travelling from and to the airport is very easy. Plus: A few steps and you are in the center of Lisbon. So the apartment is superbly located for any day and night trips! The apartment itself is great. The four of us staying there had enough room and a great chill-out time from the roof top terrasse! The apartment is very clean which is always very important to us. If anyone is looking for an apartment in Lisbon - go for this one! Thanks a lot to Fatima, Eduardo and Paula - this will surely not be our last stay in Lisbon!
Beautiful apartment but bathroom needs a very good cleaning
Left on 07/04/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | travelsimply
We stayed in the Chiado apartment, and it is indeed elegant, beautifully decorated, and in a perfect location in Lisbon.
However, the bathroom was not very clean. The floor looked like it had not been mopped for several months and the shower had mildew on the walls. We were very disappointed in the bathroom since the rest of the apartment was just wonderful. The lack of cleanliness in the bathroom interfered with our ability to truly relax and enjoy our stay.
We also had to wait for over half an hour outside on the sidewalk with all of our luggage for the person who checked us in on the day we arrived and were not offered any information about our location on the city map. But the check out was smooth and timely. Read more
Response from Heart & Soul Lisbon - Localtraveling - 07/08/2012
Thank you very much for your review. Although it seems you liked the
apartment, we were really sad to hear your complaints about the
bathroom, specially because it was the first time we had any complaint about cleaning, a major point for us. We were away that week so we could not meet you personally. Ironically, that week we hired a professional company to do both: reception and cleaning. So we really appreciate your feedback and we will sincerely review with them and our staff all procedures to see what failed so it never happens again. We also feel sorry you did not mention on arrival as we would have immediately sent a new cleaning team. We just hope to have the opportunity to accommodate you again in one of our apartments. Our sincere apologies, Eduardo, Fatima and Paula.
