Apartments 200 and 202 are both located at Rua Nova do Almada, at Chiado. There are several other apartments at Chiado.
Chiado has re-emerged from the ashes of the big fire in 1988 after about 10 years. All the investment made in the renewing of this area, conciliating elegance of the past with the modern needs of comfort and design made this the most appreciated and expensive neighborhood of central Lisbon.
Chiado is considered the most beautiful area of historic Lisbon. It was a place of residence of the Portuguese royalty and of the political and cultural elites. Nearby are located the theatre S. Luis and the opera S. Carlos. A little further is Camões square (Praça de Camões), next to Bairro Alto, picturesque but raffish. Part of Lisbon's nightlife is concentrated in this quarter, where you can hear 'fados' being sung in some restaurants and cafés. Chiado and Bairro Alto are where locals and tourists meet, with elegant hotels, old cafés and the best international fashion shops. The flats are also a few minutes walking to a lot of trendy shops, and to the famous café Brasileira.
A 5 minutes walk takes you to the funicular Bica and also toRossio, in Baixa, the neighbourhood rebuilt after the earthquake of 1755. In the direction of the river, you can find Praça do Comércio, centre of the old Portuguese empire near the river Tejo (Tagus river).
It is close to shops, restaurants, cafes, banks, cash machines, public transports (inc subway station Baixa/Chiado station 50 meters away and electric trams) 24 hour taxi stands, etc. Also in the same square there are a pharmacy and a post office, as well as grocery shops within 5 minutes walking.
To go to Sintra or to Óbidos you must catch the train at Entre-Campos train station, which is just a short subway trip from Chiado.
The nearest airport is Lisbon International Airport at 12 kilometres; the nearest railway station is International Station of Santa Apolónia at 1 kilometre.

We chose this apartment very carefully - a big group travelling to celebrate my mothers 80th birthday and support my daughters choir tour to Lisbon. In particular we wanted effective air-conditioning, easy accommodation and a working fridge.
We ended up with a hot noisy flat, the air con was very patchy and it was very noisy to sleep with windows open, many areas of the flat were not cooled at all. To accommodate our party we had to move beds around. The fridge was dodgy, as were the flat door keys , leaving us stranded in the very hot lobby one evening. Calling our letting agents was met with a very unhelpful response.
I needed this flat to deliver a great holiday for my mum - it let us down

Thank you so much for your review and for your feedback in regards to your stay in our apartment.
We are sorry you felt that it was not appropriate for 10 people, which is absolutely correct. It is a 4 bedroom apartment with maximum capacity for 9 people, as stated on our website and description. To suit your request and accommodate you we suggested and arranged for an extra bed, used for these situations. Obviously an apartment suited for 9 people cannot be as comfortable for 10. What we did, to help, so your party could all be together for a more reasonable price turned out to be a negative experience. We will take your comment as a lesson learnt. There is a reason why apartments have maximum capacity.
Regarding the check in we are very sorry to hear of your difficulties. That was a very busy day for our meet-and-greet department hence why after your first call you were asked to call when closer to Lisbon, as per our terms&procedures, in order to schedule your check in. Unfortunately your next call was already outside the apartment and we did not have enough time to schedule your check in properly. Please accept our sincere apologies for having made you wait, it was obviously a misunderstanding in communication.
Refrigerators can break! :-) We are sorry that it happened and though we did try to fix it it was a technical problem and required a certified technician to fix it. They could only repair it after you left and not in time for your benefit. Nevertheless, as the apartment is equipped with two we did not think that it would be such a major inconvenience, although we understand that you were not pleased.
Regarding the lack of attention we are very concerned that you felt that way. We do provide a " 24/7" mobile phone on check in for guests to contact us at anytime and regarding any subject. We always ask guests to contact us as soon as they experience any problems. We are eager to make their stay wonderful, and we have a dedicated team who can resolve most issues quickly. If we did not on this occasion it is because it was beyond our control.
We do hope that despite these aspects you were able to enjoy Lisbon and the apartment. We would love to show you another apartment and show you that your concerns are not at all representative of our apartments and service.

We found Miguel, the agent from TTL, very informative and accommodating. The apartment was very clean and comfortable, with all amenities included. It was also very centrally located, with many restaurants close by along with transportation, grocery stores and malls.
It was a very spacious apartment and easily fit all of us. There were supposed to be 7, but only 6 of us could make it.
It needed a little more lighting in the living room and one of the rooms upstairs was somewhat noisy - which is why I gave it a 4. Read more
Thank you very much for your review, we are thrilled you enjoyed your stay and the apartment.
We'll certainly take into account your request for more lightning in the living room; We're always very receptive to feedback that will allow for better stays.
All this said, we're very glad that you were very pleased with the flat and our service.
Please do be in touch with us the next time that you visit Lisbon.

modern and very clean apartment in a great neighborhood. It was a perfect base for our family while exploring Lisbon. There are
a number of excellent restaurants nearby and a small shopping center (with a Starbucks!)across the street.
Our only complaint would be that the mattresses in 3 of the bedrooms are very hard and uncomfortable. It would also be great to have a safe in one of the rooms. Otherwise we absolutely loved the apartment.
The TravelingToLisbon team was not quite as helpful or accommodating as we had hoped and obviously having to carry a large sum of cash from the other side of the world for the rental payment is not ideal.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. The place is huge which we all enjoyed, especially our young children. It is centrally located enabling quick trips to all the major sights. I found the TTL staff very helpful, especially Jose who met us on arrival and assisted us finding a parking place for our car. He went the extra mile to ensure that we also found our way back to our apartment from the parking lot.
Great apartment, great service, great company, great vacation for us!
